This Sunday is the season 5 premiere of HBO's "Game of Thrones."
So while I haven't quite finished work on Wave 9 (slacker), I thought I would share these updates to some old favorites I did using parts from the recently released Dark Horse statues.
Robb: Replaced the head, added the screen accurate sword, dagger (hard to see in this pic), and sheath.
Tyrion: Replaced the head, added the leather "skirt" and removable dagger. Made him a book to carry, since Tyrion says, "My brother has his sword, King Robert has his warhammer and I have my mind...and a mind needs books as a sword needs a whetstone if it is to keep its edge."
Jaime: This one was the biggest transformation. I really wanted to more authentically capture the show's Kingsguard armor. So I completed gutted the armor, sword, sheath, etc. from the Dark Horse statue and reworked. Added cloth cape, under "skirt", and mail sparkle suit. The body is a CTVT highly modified to fit the armor, with homemade swivel biceps and pegs for accepting boots and gloves. The Dark Horse statue's head is a great likeness, but looks a tad undersized next to a standard Mego, so I stuck with the BBP Flash Gordon head.
