This is something I have been working on four or five months ago. Yes, some parts had to be custom-made and painted, but hey - it was better than nothing. Alias Smith and Jones was Glen A. Larson's first TV success in 1971 based on the runaway success of Butch Cassidy & the Sundance Kid in 1969. The series is also notable for Pete Duel's suicide on New Year's Eve that same year. After two years, it ended in January 1973 the same time Bonanza aired its final episode. My Bonanza minimates - well, sadly I had to part with them and recycle most of the parts generally because of cost and price. The hats were made from the Tony Stark Cowboy Disguise headpiece and the Rick Grimes hat from said figure from The Walking Dead line. Still, with the only parts I have with me on hand, I was able to recreate the main characters from the show. I haven't got the horses yet, but I'm sure I can find some in this scale, so please leave your thoughts, I'd appreciate that.
As of last month I've been collecting minimates for a year! I wish I had started sooner. Anyhow I figure it's about time to finish up some customs I've been working on for a looong time and post some pics. They're by no means any special works of art like most other's customs posted here but I'm learning. Here's a sneak peak of my first customs. I'm sure most of you will get the reference Two by two... So as you may have guessed it... it's the crew of Serenity from the ill-fated television show "Firefly" and the movie "Serenity."
Say, if anybody out there is wanting to make a Western diorama or a train diorama, then what kinds of trains would best suit the scale of your minimates? Also, it would be a great opportunity to make your own BTTF3 train, too.
