McF Billy the Kid figure - flexible or hard jacket?

Posted in Custom Workstation

Does anyone know if the coat from McFarlane's "Billy the Kid" figure is flexible, or is it incredibly rigid?

I'm thinking of finding one online for a custom I'm doing (it's the right style of coat) for a FOA Ranger-sort of project. Only thing is, if it's a solid sculpted piece I'll need to look elsewhere.

Any info would be appreciated.

Cheers,

I recommend the SHalashaska form McFarlands Metal Gear Two line. I have one its all soft ( save the sleeves which are part of the arm sculpt) but you can over come that. the jacket is flowing and looks great. In fact I wish I had like two more!

Wow! That's an awesome reply. Thanks for asking that fellow for me. I might go with a NECA Turnbull figure from the movie Jonah Hex line:

I have Hex from that series, and that coat is pretty flexible/removable. Most NECA stuff is like that.

Saw this loose on ebay so I asked the guy...this was his reply

Dear andro6657,

Hello that is a great question, As Im writing I have the figure in my hand,Let me answer it this way "some" parts of jacket itself are flexible (made of some strong plastic but is bendable, the lower coat tails down by his feet are very flexible) but it seems the way Billy is wearing it it would be Impossible to take off, The coats texture is "harder around his chest and arms.I just noticed something the coat portion around his arms looks like a "seperate" piece as opposed to the rest of the coat almost like the arms are removable but the jacket covering the arms looks like one piece with arms. So no the full coat would not be removable parts are flexible but not "Fully" removable.Sorry to ramble but I want to give you as much INFO as possible.

Thanks!
