View Full Version : Need Help on Making a Bulletman Helmet
Jun 25, '07, 10:21 PM
Howdy all! I've been working on making a Megoized version of the G.I. Joe Bulletman character. I'm just about done except for the helmet. I've been having trouble trying to figure out how to make one. I've been trying to figure out how to modify something, since I'm not that good at sculpting. Any help that can be offered would be greatly appreciated.

Remarkably, I am just finishing up one this evening. I purchased mine from gman. He shrunk down an original and the results were super. You should pop him a message.
I don't have a picture yet, nor could I find the picture he put together of the set, but the helmet is perfect in my opinion.

From G-Man's old Museum Gallery...

Or ask Buk, the master of silicone. If he doesn't already have it, maybe he can make it
Yeah, get ahold of Gman. I got one of his Bulletman head/helmet sets and they're fantastic! (His Captain Action is cool too!)
The suit's a pain to sew though... and I still need to make an emblem.
... but the head is fantastic!

Thanks for everyone's suggestion. gman's helmet looks awesome, I dropped him a PM, look forward to hearing from him.

These GI Joe characters must be much more popular here than I thought. Ive been studying on casting clear resin to make a Mike Power first but was going to make Bulletman after that. Keep the sources coming it'll just save me time later.
PM sent.... For the emblem and card --- talk to The Toyroom -- I have both from him and they are fantastic!!!

I have one of Gmans Helmets Top quality! Can't go wrong

I get that a lot around here too. I've also found that a lot of folks make customs of characters that I can't then picture any other way.

Clear stuff is weird. You gotta cast it pretty clean, 'cos anything you do to it afterwards will scratch it up; and scratches are very noticable. I've been trying to make a good Pulsar torso; but it needs to be double cast, and it's a huge pain sorting that all out.
