Lt. Dan Taylor

Post by kramer70 on Sat May 02, 2015 7:39 pm

This was a fun custom to make. I Wanted to make a character that had a wheelchair but had no idea who to put in one. So I thought I would just make a Lt. Dan from forrest gump. The wheelchair is custom made out of random fodder parts from a model car and the seat is from the joe headquarters.

Very Happy I am impressed!

Excellent execution Kramer. Never expected a custom of him.
Is it based on Gung Ho v1?

No , his head is the later version of gung ho. I think v. 3 or 4. 1990s figure. he was bald and had a headband already. I just sculpted the hair. thanks though. more figures to come.

Let me say first off that the scratch-built wheelchair is awesome. You don't see many customs of a handicap character but the ingenuity creating both the chair and character is something that clearly must be acknowledged. Good stuff, man...

I was wondering where the chair came from

Originally I thought that was Flagg's head. Obviously I was mistaken.

Ever noticed in the last days of o-rings, that re-issues almost never used the rolled up sleeves? Duke just got Roadbl;ock arms with the top bicep colored like his shirt, or in some cases, the entire arm was colored like a sleeve?

Even before the big "Fuck you" to us by destroying the molds, Hasbro couldnt do re-issues right

LOL, haha, that came out of the left field! I love the scenes where Forrest Gump gets on his nerves all the time!

The hair sculpting and the wheelchair are two things that really stand out here.
