[Custom CMF] Jungle Adventures

Recommended Posts

After Mitgardian Heroes and Scientists, I'm glad to share a third custom Collectable Minifigures Series with you!

This time, the theme is Adventure. Inspired by adventure literature classics, pulp fiction novels, and vintage archetyps...
Note : just like with the previous one, I hesitated between posting it in this forum or in the Action & Adventure one. I chose this one because this is sort of a MOC within the Collectable Minifigures Series theme... Sorry if I made the wrong choice!

Wow what a unique and fun idea! I really like the designs for the Priestess, Bookworm, Bush Pilot and especially the Boss, they all just seem to really work and stand out.

These are great!  I was just putting together a CMF-style lineup and diorama of the original Adventurers characters and seeing this more modern take on basically the same theme is wonderful.  Great selections and combinations here!  :wub:

Archaeologist, The Bush Pilot and The Ingenue are the best ones!

 

I'd get them all if real!

Well, either way, I do hope @Peppermint_M comes by if she hasn't already to check these out... :classic:

I'll take those six seasons of a Pulp Adventure inspired Netflix series too please! :tongue: 

Seriously, I don't know why we don't see many studios nowadays tapping into that genre... :look:

Likewise, though the bush pilot makes me realize how badly we need a scarf piece in white and a crusher cap piece. Good work, Aurore!

Awesome series! Very nice usage of parts. I love seeing how people take parts and use them in a new context - the results are often inspirational. Well done!

What a great series - I'd like to get them all!

They all are awesome, but The Hunter and The Boss are the two I like most.

Love the bush pilot and the airplane mechanic!

I can almost hear the mechanic and pilot saying: 

Mechanic: "It'll be two weeks before your plane can fly aqain after this landing-with-no-wheels stunt you've pulled, plus I'll need to order another prop blade for for the right engine and build a whole new tail."

The pilot replies: "Great, I'll be back in three-to-five days to pick it up, and just for you, I'll even throw in chance to hit it big with my next cargo load as payment - I'm going to be looking for a lost temple with some guy named Thunder. Supposed to be filled with gold and lots of booby traps."

Mechanic: "...How much gold are we talking?"
