Custom "N2 Toys" Pappagallo figure

Postby HUMVEE Driver » Fri Mar 11, 2011 8:34 pm

I always thought Pappagallo got the shaft when it came to the N2 toys. I mean, Golden Youth, Toady, and a Bad Cop got figures, but he didn't? So I decided to rectify this and make my own custom Pappagallo figure.

I've been working on this for a while, but most of the time has been spent collecting the different parts that match his face, hair, and clothing. The parts are from various Marvel comics superheros/villans figures. The wrist crossbow used to belong to Wez, but it has been modified to match the one Pappagallo had. His leather armor is just that, and with real cloth around the arm holes.

The first pic is a work in progress with a rubber band around his waist, getting the leather to form to that shape.

The next pic is the figure almost finished. I don't like the way his eyes turned out, and I still have to paint a few details. Lastly, I have to make the helmet he wore and enclose him in a N2 toys package.

Then, he's going to be shipped off to Michael Preston, in the hopes of getting the man's autograph!

Nope, Adam Warlock's head, Baron Zemo's arms, and Ant Man's legs and body.

I had to look up who Adam Warlock was...I stopped reading comics in the mid 90's, and Ive an assload of early Toy Biz figures.

The only suggestions I have wouold be to smooth out the exaggerated muscle/anatomy legs. And when paining eyes, it is best to paint them backwards: paint the dark flesh colored sockets, then the eyeliner (if needed) then the whites, then the pupil. Also never use pure white, use a a mix of flesh & white.

Guess what I got back!

He wrote:

"Hey David, I love the doll you did of me... any chance of making one for me?"

(I guess we have to explain the difference between a 'doll' and an 'action figure'!) :lol:

If I can get the parts together, I will make him one and sent it to him!

On the back of the box he wrote "Glad you like MM2!"

So this just made my whole week! Three down, many more to go!

THAT is ridiculously awesome!
Being a giant figure collector i was pissed as hell when N2 went under and noone else picked up the MAD MAX's from them, i mean Mcfarlane picked up the MATRIX's, but not even NECA has done a Max yet.

Awesome! This is the first time I've smiled in a week. Too bad Mike doesn't own a sharpie. :)
