Doc Savage Diorama. A work in progress. I'd built Renny and Monk, so needed a base, so needed villains. The base is half of the roof of the Ghostbusters HQ with a Batman(?) door screwed on. I'll put a granite cornice all around and dress up the tar and wood eventually. Pulp villains always manage to look sinister and silly at the same time. I was trying to match bad guys like The Green Bell and The Inca in Gray's minions pictured. Mine is the Three-Headed Cobra, because I had three cobra heads in the fodder box. He's a Power Ranger (so there's a nice Oriental riff) draped in coffee filter paper robes and Painkiller Jane's cape and pirate boots. He holds a "Death Staff" which is just a shock rod (made from light sabers) connected to a power pack under his cape. The Mindless Minion is a generic 5-inch guy draped in coffee filter paper stiffened with white glue. He wears goggles cut from round tubing with a green wash inside. His insulated hood and outfit are painted cobra-like. His cheaper shock rod (a cut-down M-16 with brass rods) connects to a battery on his belt, sloppy welds and all. He might easily electrocute himself, but minions were cheap in the 1930s. I kept him simple, since I need like eight of them to outnumber Doc's crew.
