Suppose we oughta fix that!

Here's three new figs!

Mr. Terrific

Wild Dog

Isis

great Wild Dog.  I have been agonizing over finalizing my own version.  I initially used the same helmet piece but decided against it in favor of something else.  That torso idea though, very clever, I did not think of that.  Also just after reading a recent DC Metal tie-in was wondering how i might be able to pull off Mr. Terrific.  Using only yellow would make it real hard for me.

I know you've probably had to answer this question a bunch of times but why have you restricted yourself to only yellow? The added challenge? To fit in with in-house Lego themes? I just don't understand it

Thanks! I can't wait to see what you come up with!

I recently got the Roman Gladiator CMF, and I thought the hairpiece from it would work quite well for Jon Favreau's Happy Hogan.  The Lego games gave him Peter Venkman's hair, and I think both have their pros and cons; Venkman's is  balding, but the Gladiator's (Finn's) better portrays the very curly texture and close-cropped style, and it has a fairly high hairline for a Lego wig anyway. I threw them both on Lex Luthor for comparison.

Oh, and I've thrown in what Ultron looks like with Darth Maul-extendo-Robo legs. Figured I'd try it, given how much taller he is than everybody else, and the fact that he's got Robo legs.

It isn't more challenging, actually much less.  If you look through all my posts, I've been able to more accurately recreate hundreds of characters.  I am only limited in that domino mask faces in yellow all seem to have mustaches. Yellow gives me more variety.  When I see characters that are POC and they use the same 4 black characters heads over and over, I'd rather just see them with a yellow head that better fits the character.  Flesh color lego assumes that there are 4 skin tones, its just not even close to being accurate, yellow can represent anything and anyone.  It is more in the spirit of lego.  So main reason being more choice, secondary reason is philosophical, lego was just better before fleshtones, representation wasn't an issue, now it is.

I'm not familiar with a lot of these guys, but the two that stand out most to me are your spot-on Flamingo and Gaggy!

I remember seeing Cypher in Beware the Batman, he looks really cool. Props to Electrocutioner and Gagsworth too (Gaggy is really scraping the bottom of the barrel of characters :laugh:)
