Torso and heads to make a Modern Pippin Reed and Dr Kilroy?

Recommended Posts

I'm making a moc of an updated Scorpion Tracker set and I have the updated Johnny Thunder from The Lego Movie that I'm planning on using with it.

I want to add Dr Kilroy and Pippin Reed but would like them to look more updated.

Edit: I know what to use for Pippin Reed. I might wait on Dr Kilroy for a bit but I will be using his Orient Expedition head with maybe a santa beard.

My own personal Pippin reed and dr kilroy are pretty different from the originals But I think my use of Shaggy's hair piece from scooby doo fits Pippin Reed pretty well.


Then this head is my choice for Pippin

My dr kilroy is gender swapped so that I could use the headpiece from the archeologist CMF but if you wanted to do a classic dr kilroy I would suggest using the santa claus beard piece


Then perhaps this power miner head

Or this head (the lips would be covered up by the beard

https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=3626cpb1885&name=Minifigure, Head Female Glasses Round with Bright Light Blue Lenses and Black Frames, Orange Lips with Slight Crooked Smile Pattern - Hollow Stud&category=[Minifigure, Head]#T=S&C=3&O={"color":3,"iconly":0}

This torso from the LEGO Ninjago Movie is pretty good for Pippin (fewer details for adventuring but add a pouch or a camera accessory and it'll look great)

I personally think dr kilroy's torsos have aged well but some more modern suggestions

Depending on how you think Dr Kilroy would dress these days, these HP suits might do:



The last one probably needs grey trousers.

The first three with a pith helmet all strike me as the type of thing a European gentleman would wear in the hot desert and still look immaculate.




with white trousers and pith helmet or


with dark tan trousers and pith helmet or even

Thanks I'll go with that head and torso for Pippin

I've decided to stick with Kilroy's original head but might add the santa beard on for detail.

As for his torso. I still would like it to be white. But I'll see what bowtie torsos bricklink has

Any good printed red or green legs for Pippin and Kilroy respectively?

It looks a bit vintage, but LOTR Merry's torso could work for Dr Kilroy. The beard should hide the light flesh collar.
The new HP Ernie Prang's torso could work as well, but I think it depends on the setting : it's knitwear after all...

The City female volcano explorer's torso could work well for Pippin, depending on the exposure of the back (which features the volcano logo). Sadly it's designed to work with sand blue legs, and there are not many sand blue legs with an adventurer flair. Maybe the ones with dark green boots, or the Serie 15 Janitor's hips with plain legs, or those ones or those ones from Jurassic World.

As far as red or green legs are concerned, there are none I really like for adventurers. Except from Ginny Weasley's dark red legs, but they are awfully expensive! The Serie 12 Dino Tracker's legs are great, but they are olive green.
