View Full Version : Ideas for a Moleman body.
Jun 15, '12, 9:03 PM
As I wrap up the sinister six, I want to do some Fantastic Four villains. Dr. Doom is coming along so well thanks to all the support here.:yes:
I want to do a Moleman. Any suggestions on a body type?
I'm currently considering reworking a CTVT body to a shorter stance. Still not sure if I should use a standard or fat male body? Does anyone make a 'really good fat body'?
FF villain list so far:
For the sixth villain I've been considering Impossibleman and Red Ghost. Impossibleman requests a thin body. Red Ghost needs his ape crew.:yeah: I'm starting to think I should just go with Miracleman or maybe some regular Skrulls. (?) Did I mention I was going to go for a Kirby look on these guys?:grin:

Doc Mego might have some of the 3 Stooge Curly bodies left. They are really good but shorter than Mego fat bodies. A plus in this case. You could maybe pad the arms & legs to give it the stockier look of Moleman.

someone here did him with a Our Gang style body restrung with 8 inch Mego arms. It works perfect.

^ I was going to suggest the chubby (Spanky) OG body with Teen Titan/LR hands.
I love the idea of a Red Ghost--you might use an aged Prof. Bergman head fron CTVT Space: 1999.
No Blastaar or Annihilus? Annihilus is so cool.

Regard RG's Super-Apes--it is not always easy to find Mego-scale animals, but maybe a company like Scleich has something...

here's my version of the Our Gang with 8 inch arms of him. I believe it was Ed Nagy that did it originally and who sculpted the head I used.

I just did a super skrull in the finished customs. Pm me and we'll talk recipe.

^ I was going to suggest the chubby (Spanky) OG body with Teen Titan/LR hands.Are these available in reproduction?
I love the idea of a Red Ghost--you might use an aged Prof. Bergman head fron CTVT Space: 1999.I check-out the "Berman" head. Good idea. Looking at it helped me understand RG's hair style won't be the problem I feared. If I take this on, I'm going to want to sculpt my own head for a true Kirby look. Of course I will be working from the original story inked by Ditko.
No Blastaar or Annihilus? Annihilus is so cool. Would a DrMego 'large muscle body' work for Blastarr? How big is Annihilus suppost to be? Are we talking 9 inch scale here? I only ask because as much as I may pretend to know what I'm doing, I'm really just making it up as I go. Thank you so much, for your considerate reply.

CTVT carries both teen & child body repros.
Doc carries child bodies of better quality.
Restringing any of them is useful.
Regarding Annihilus, the challenge holding me up is the wings, but I have an idea to recast.... To me, he is 8" scale.

CTVT carries both teen & child body repros.I've only found the 'teen' available in brown at CTVT.
Doc carries child bodies of better quality.I'll be ordering a 'child size body' from DrMego sometime in the future.
Restringing any of them is useful.I can use any and all advice on 'restringing'.
Regarding Annihilus, the challenge holding me up is the wings, but I have an idea to recast.... To me, he is 8" scale. I don't think I'm up for Annihilus. Miracleman, is more likely.
In hope of finding an available repro body for Moleman, it's sounds like I may have to try mixing child-teen-regular and fatman body parts.:yeah:

^^ you mean Molecule Man, right? I really need to beef up my FF villains line. I have a Super-Skrull and a trio of regular Skrulls in the works. I really like the Bergman head idea for Red Ghost.

^^ you mean Molecule Man, right?Now you got me confused. While I do have plans on a Moleculeman. I did not mean him above. "Miracleman" not the UK Capt. Marvel clone, the Hypnotist villain of the Fantastic Four.:yes:

^^ Oh, that guy. I forgot he had a super villain name.
