and in News to hand from Behind the Bamboo Curtain....

It would appear Dr. EVIL has gained much prestige during his extended sojourn in China.
Not only has he adopted full Imperial dress, here in a recent photo taken within his lavish palace, he receives homage from some Chinese minion identified only as Xi Jinping.

Oh, this is glorious! Superb! Doc looks genuinely regal! Is that a custom costume?

Love the crown!

Excellent blending of props and setting with the background image. Virtually impossible to determine where foreground ends and background image begins.

Let’s hope Doc is as shrewd as he appears, lest he be taken in… like the rest of the world!

Oh The Doc. is no fool! He knows exactly how to handle those locals!

The outfit itself came on a charity find Dumbledore figure, which had such a horrible headsculpt of indeterminate gender that it was immediately decapitated and the robes appropriated by Dr Evil. He also took Dumbledore's quite classy high black jackboots!
The tiara is ex-Prince Ken, ....another charity shop score. Don't usually buy Kens but this one came in a bag with other MAMs that I did want, so Ken's outfit all went into props and poor Ken went naked back to the charity shop.
The bowing figure is indeed Xi Jinping, ...some rare Photoshopping I used to tell the story.

Dr. Evil is definitely looking regal!

I wasn't aware of Captain Action as a young child. I later got the
Playing Mantis repros. Had I known that another company would
have made the ones with the better head sculpts, I would have
waited for them.

He does love his new regalia.
I think it may have all gone to his head....brains?
Will he ever return to carrying out more nefarious plots in the West now, after commanding such respect in the East?

No reason you can't have BOTH versions Daryl.
I think Dave has.
This Dr. Evil has very good articulation.

Yes it DEFINITELY looks like your Dr. EVIL has gained much prestige during his extended sojourn in China.
Your Doctor Evil dressed in full Imperial dress looks the part I say. I wonder if he’s managed to pick up the Chinese language and speak a bit of it too. I’m really liking the picture.

Thanks Alex! Always nice to read that you enjoyed the picture.
I think Chinese would be easy for Dr. Evil.
Remember, he's from another planet and has three brains to choose from. Surely one of them would be programmed for fluency in all Earth languages?
