A Fortress Fit For A Knight!

I promise this will be the final post about the stinkin’ Styrofoam fort-Unless of course I decide to deck it out with Batman Quick Tech accessories, Batmobile , etc. For this will officially be turned into a  “Bat Fortress”! Fellow blogger Combo http://combollectoractionfigurerev.blogspot.com/  commented on the fact that I should add a little paint,and that’s something I may consider doing in the near future. Maybe a mixture of black and grey, IDK. But I really want this to be exclusive to my lone DKR Batman  figure, which I still believe is one of the nicest looking 3 3/4 Batman figures out there, articulation aside.

Added Steps And Holding Cell To Fort!

Get used to these small updates guys because I have a feeling this thing is going to get cooler and cooler by the minute. Every time I pass by it, I think of something new that I can add on or improve upon. What’s cool about this kind of Styrofoam is the sturdiness of it. Once you put them together they don’t budge and hold up your action figure perfectly! It also cuts smoothly and cleanly. But the best part about it is the rock appearance. The pictures don’t do it much justice ,because when your up close  and looking at It, It really looks like an ancient ruin/monument. I’ve added some steps using tooth picks to stick the slabs against the sides of the walls. The chain in the holding cell is actually Ninja Force Wolverine’s  weapon. It’s pretty convincing though IMO.I feel the steps that I’ve added give the fort more of an accessible feel to it, connecting and making it passable from one end to the other.

Styrofoam Fort!

The other day my better half brought me some Styrofoam. She said that I might be able to use it to sound proof some of the walls in my soon-to -be music studio. They had given it to her at her job and she really didn’t get a good look at it until we got it home and out of the boxes they came in. Unfortunately they were too odd shaped to use as soundproof paneling,but just right to build a kick ass fort for some action figures! I was pretty excited about the various shapes and sizes they came in, seemingly made specifically for building playsets. This is not your average Styrofoam. It’s a lot more sturdy and less messy than the ordinary, more common white Styrofoam. The pieces come apart easily and can be  mixed and matched to make some pretty cool designs.The fort looks like something out of Minecraft ,lol.

Foam Dojo Dio 3/26-4/1

With all the cool G.I. Joe Retaliation Ninja figures  that will soon be hitting the market and the few Ninja and martial arts themed figures that i have now, i figured I’d take a stab at creating a  Dojo out of the same foam that I’ve used to make some of the other dio’s that I’ve shown recently here on “Action Figs & Things”. While it still needs a couple of paint touch ups here and there I am fairly pleased with the results.Enjoy the pics!

Foam Action figure Playset/Diorama

Ever since i was kid i can remember always wanting one of those super cool Marvel or G.I. Joe playsets,and never getting one lol.These things were massive,super cool and expensive which explains why i never owned any as a kid.As of late i’ve been tinkering with foam dioramas,on smaller scales though, and decided to make my very own Marvel/G.I. Joe playset.I know it’s not the most flawless looking thing and there are no HASBRO stampings on them  but it still makes for a pretty cool backdrop for picture taking and displaying.I decided to go with a battle torn street with some abandoned buildings for the background.I still have to add little things like manhole covers,street signs and traffic lights and certain areas need touching up but for now this will do.I haven’t taken any pics of MARVEL figures in a while so i decided to let them break in the new dio.
