Time for the Big Man
I've got some great shots of our new Villain. We wanted some muscle for our Super Villain figure, so we thought about who you would have to go through to get to the master mind. Someone with a lot of muscle seemed like a great answer, so Soapy gave us a lot of muscle.
I picked these three heads to give a lot of variety. There is a set of Ram horns, a hockey mask, and a freakish head for a slightly ghoulish look. These should offer you chance to represent different power levels with the same guy. I personally can't wait to paint a few of them up in different colors to see how that changes the look and feel of the figure.
I really like him, and I hope you do to! He's been referred to as Ram Jam while we've been developing him. Eventually I'd like to get him a side kick called Black Betty. (Extra points to who ever puts that together).
He's a bit bigger than your average hero, but we wanted him to be a towering opponent. While only slightly taller, he's much larger in mass than the other lads.
I thought I wouldn't post anywhere but here for a few days. I know some members of our community have blogs or post to message boards about the project, so I thought I'd give them a chance to break the news and show the pics if they wanted to. I'll start putting these pictures out in earnest in a few days, so put these out there if you like, otherwise I'll spread the word later in the week.
Have a great New Years and Happy Hogmanay!
