German bust in peadot

I was in the toy shop the other day and saw a 12" Spiderman pack going out cheap($7!). I usually don't give them much of a thought but I was pretty impressed with the headsculpt and what the hey it's only seven bucks. Once I stripped off the factory paint the head painted up okay.







The main drawback was that he was attatched to a truely horrible body. The figure just couldn't be made to stand on his own. I decided to turn him into a bust to keep things simple.



I may add some Y-strapps and a belt with pouches and a steel helmet but I haven't made up my mind as of yet. I will add a nameplate and a little weathering but it's nice to finish a figure in a weekend for once. Plus I'm only out less than $20 in materials!

Thanks for looking.

Dan

Looks great! I agree, that's an interesting HS, I'm always on the lookout for those.

Isn't there any way you could have attached the head to a DML body? Not that the bust isn't cool, but it would be great to see a full figure.

Here's another idea (not that you asked LOL), pick up a tank turret and do him as a tank commander.
