The Suicide Squad: A government team of shadowy special operatives, each with a unique codename and costume that hints at their combat expertise.
Hmmm, where have I…
Yeah, the ‘Squad were G.I. Joe’ish, but there were two big differences: one, they were all baguys with explosive collars that blew their heads off if they went AWOL. Two, no Refrigerator Perry. Advantage: Suicide Squad.
Anyway, this week’s ray of sunshine, Rick Flag…
Ingredients: Base body is a Skrull Infiltrator (Supernova) and…that’s where my memory goes off the rails. His head, right hand and holsters are all frankensteined from other Heroclix, but it’s been awhile since I built this sucker. I’m blanking on what figures those bits were lifted from…
Holster straps, wristwatch and Han Solo striped-pantsness are all thin strips of index card paper held in place with a pinprick of Elmer’s and hardened with a lil’ Krazy Glue. Acrylic paint, some matte finish and it’s a wrap. Custom Rick Flag dial here.
He came out okay, though looking back at him now I think I should have chosen a different head for him, one with slightly bushier hair. I dig the pose, though…that Skrull Infiltrator figure is a great lil’ base body.
