Just a heads up,

The 21st Century figure line has a license to the movie Platoon to make figures of the actors/characters in that film along with some vehicles.  The good news?  Yes, you will have a Tom Berenger (all scarred up) Sgt. Barnes head for fodder...  You will have a Charlie Sheen head, you will have a Johnny Depp head, and a Willam Defoe head even.  Lots of great fodder...

The bad news?  Finding 21st figures is a pain in the backside for many.  I still have yet to see a lot of them, especially the Japanese.  Wal-Mart's just attrocious at distributing 21st's stuff, however they may be seeing other retailer outlets as well as etailers (which they've always been at).

Enjoy...

BTW

I merged the "2006 Fodder" thread with the Fodder alert thread...  Keep all the fodder talk in one thread I figure, it'll keep things simpler.

you will have a Johnny Depp head.

When the hell was he in Platoon? I own that movie on DVD, and it's one of my favorite movies...I'm seriously lost.

He's there...  very young, but he's there.

Dale beat me to it, but he was the (I think) interpreter at the village... 

I can't wait to make a hard-ass looking Imperial Officer wtih the Sgt. Barnes head.  I mean, you just can't get better than that.

What does lack of sleep have to do with anything? That's why caffeine was invented! LOL

Wow, Platoon figures?  I'm excited... let's see some wartime US President figures too.  To me at least, it would be cool - the Commander in Chief line.  I'd like to make a "W" figure shooting a terrorist.

 :P

I dunno about "action figures" as such, but i saw a 12 inch Dubya figure @ Entertainment Earth...they had the missus too, along with Washington, Franklin, even Princess Di....saw the Washington and Franklin figures and had a couple ideas for custom figs...non SW related tho, basically headswap and give my girl a 12 inch Brad Pitt from Interview with the Vampire <she loves his character for some reason <rolls eyes>

Wow, a Johnny Depp Jedi...and he can become a separatist, just like in real life...the America-hatin' little Euro-wannabe.

Lookin' forward to a Tom Berenger though...and those Ithorians, Arcona and Kubaz fodder coming in the Tatooine wave. Between those and all the Republic Commando's I'm gonna by, I'm gonna be nice and broke.   ;D

Oh, and in case you didn't realize...Mesa back!

Hey Richard! You got me while I was still editing, darn it!  ;)

New customs this week...I promise!

Oh, and your avatars comment made me laugh pretty hard...mainly because I'm invoked that line myself.

Sorry Jesse - we know that.  I wasn't trying to get political, just saying I'd like to make a custom figure of that.

I know I have a Patton head for similar thinking with customs I'd like to make....  Patton Imperial/Rebel Officers seem like a cool idea.  I wish I had a Rommel in this scale for a Rommel Imperial/Patton Rebel.
