Hammer Six, Dr. Zorkon and Gun Shy were at the Lunken Air Show this weekend representing the SSCC with several tables. They gave out a ton of business cards with Ft. Thomas show information on them. They also had a great display. Hopefully Hammer Six will get on and give some more information because I am kind of sketchy on all the details, but it does look like it was a good show and that they made a lot of great contacts for the club. I am going to let some of Hammer Six's pictures tell the rest of the story and he can fill the details in with his comments.
Hammer Six got the great pictures of the B-17 moving down the runway as it was taking off. I know it doesn't look like it is moving, but those propellers were actually spinning (just don't look like it in the photos). Below is a B-25 flying over the field. It is painted in D-Day invasion scheme.
Below are a few pictures from the SSCC display that Hammer Six and Dr. Zorkon put together.
They put together a really nice display and there was a lot of interest in the club and what we are doing. Hopefully some of those folks will come down and see us at Ft. Thomas. Until next time, have a good one!
Thought we might start the week out with a review. I don't know that I can talk too much about this figure because I don't really have any data and I obviously haven't seen the real figure yet, but we will retreat back to the old axiom that a picture is worth a thousand words. Several pictures then should be equivalent to a lengthy short story...
Following some of Hot Toys lines (like Batman), I know that sometimes the reviews are mixed, especially when you consider the price, but I have to tell you that I certainly do like the looks of this one - Chris Taylor from Platoon. It looks like the actor Charlie Sheen and the uniform and gear looks first rate. Not only that, Hot Toys seems to have a commitment to accuracy as evidenced by the fact that they spend the money to get the license for their figures. And of course I am into Vietnam figures, so I was bound to like this one.
But then, really what's not to like. They give you two heads and plenty of gear. It looks to be a pretty sweet figure. Years ago I bought a Sideshow version of this figure and though the sculpt and the uniform survived to surface into my Vietnam saga, the gear did not. The Sideshow gear was pretty sub-standard.
But, enough of what I think, here are the rest of the pictures. You all tell me what you think of this one. I think it is pretty cool, but I will not spend as much as I know it's probably going to be to get my hands on one. I sure hope it gets parted out though, I want that claymore bag and the LAW.
Well, I think it looks pretty sharp, but I am interested in hearing what you all think about the figure. And, will it be the only one? or will there be more characters from the movie? Inquiring minds want to know. Well, that is all for this time round, so until next time,
