Thanks for all the kind words, folks. They were encouraging to get going for me and reference I found in this site was quite useful.

I am selling the figures to an American Garage kit company, Needful Things-they have produced Road Warrior kit about 10 years ago which included the doggie and the kid. Sadly Goose figure isn't as popular as Max in the US so I had to make Max figure to go with it. I have not sent the figures to the mold maker, yet but I am sure that they will be available to those who want it in a few month. Thanks for looking and all the support!!

Cool!

Make sure you let us know when they are available to purchase.

They are without doubt the best figures to emerge from the Mad Max trilogy.

:shock:
These are fantastic!! I mean, absolutely superior sculpting and easily....EASILY, the best likeness of
Mel and Steve I have seen. I hope these continue to be available as they will require some saving for.
How did the build go? was the fit good, or did it require some work? The finished product looks spot-on.

And please do keep us posted on the Kwakka conversion you found. That looks excellent as well. I would love to build that.

Thanks for the compliment, Interdictor.

Build is okay. the figure was made to fit pretty tight. But putty is needed here and there. The Goose kit has been built by many modelers in Japan ( He is very popular there). and many of the builders drill out the neck to put a magnet so that they can interchange the head of Goose.

As for the Kwaka conversion kit for 1/12 Kawasaki model kit, I could not find any info on them. It is of course a non-licensed garage kit so they just made a few and disappeared seems like...

OOoh, kinda forgot about these. They came out incredible! Unfortunately, stuff like this is out of my price range. I can still lie vicariously through others. Hope to see some more finished ones.
