Bishop Custom Action Figure
|Custom Type:||Action Figure|
|Date Added:||July 19, 2007|
|Base Figure:||Sideshow Toys, X-Files Frank Black|
The only reason I got this pretty weak Frank Black figure was to modify his pistol for my Zardoz custom. I had this Lance Henriksen figure left over, so I tried my best to convert it to the character 'Bishop' from Aliens. I repainted the eyes, and sculpted entirely new hair for him. I got him a watch, some 1:6 scale metal dog-tags, a set of the correct boots, (from Hot Toys Ellen Ripley) and a jumpsuit. I had to alter the jumpsuit quite a bit, and fit it with a belt. In the movie, Bishop doesn't really hold objects like guns or anything, so I wanted a pair of hands that were not in a gripping pose. I happen to have a 'Barnabus Collins' 12" figure by Majestic Studios, from Dark Shadows. It had an extra pair of hands I wasn't using, and they fit Bishop perfectly. In fact, they even look like Lance Henriksen's hands. That's about it- I can't wait for the 1:6 scale 'Aliens Power Loader' from Hot Toys that is coming out later this year. I have mine reserved, and it looks fantastic- it even has a working hazard light on top, and it is motorized for rotation! After I get it, I'll write a review... This custom isn't much, but I hope you like it...
