King Leonidas Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:3621  
Name:King Leonidas
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:300
Creator:Nuffsaid  
Date Added:August 14, 2007
Base Figure:Gaint Man
Height:12.00 inches
When Neca released the 12 inch Leonidas I figured it would be a great way to use an incomplete GM I had stashed away. I took the heads forearms and shins and attached them to Gaint man. I went with a cloth cape this time around cuz the rubber one was just way to heavy for him stand on his own with. I have always had problems when it came to skin tones but without sounding to egotistical......PREPARE FOR GLORY!!!
(I don't even know what the means or if it applies, just needed a 300 quote)

Wow, this custom blows me away! Excellent job on the skin tones...what are your secrets? The Giant Man I is a great base fiugre, I have plans to use one once I get all the BAF parts for mine. I still have not seen this movie, my dvd player went belly up and I would prefer to own the dvd than to rent it. Great work!

Tim burtons Planet of apes remake was AWFUL - no excuse.
But Sergio Leone's Fistful Of Dollars was a remake of Akira Kurosawa's Yojimbo - so I don't have a problem with remakes and "retellings" as long as they bring something new and interesting to the table - especially showcasing a new director like Snyder's or Nispels directorial flair and using fantastic under used character actors like R Lee Emery.
The script for both Dawn and TCM remakes were very good indeed - good interplay between characters especially in the TCM remake - something the original didn't do well at all - it relyed on its stark horror documentary aspect instead.
The acting in the TCM original - except for the "father" chracter was abysmal compared to the remake.
I hope Halloween isnt going to suffer at Rob Zombies hands - House of 1000 corpses left me cold - but devil's rejects was miles better if uneven. We'll see
Anyway Sorry for Dedi's film class 101 Nuffsaid - your custom is great fella - I love it!!!

They weren't original tho sure- so yeah youre right about that - but its very hard to be original and definitely easier to reinterpret an original hopefully in a just as entertaining way - which both did

Planet of the apes was awful.
Your are right about Mr.Emery he was the highlight of that film. And yes the filmmaking on BOTH Dawn and TCM was great. I was talking more about story and lack of originality hollywood has. I say just stop with the remakes already.

Disagree about both the Dawn and TCM remakes - BOTH were good - esepcially some of the camera work in TCM straight from the zoom out thru head wound opening shot of the girl blowing her brains out
It was a different film to the original - as Dawn of the dead remake was - each of these remakes brought something new to the table in my and many others opinion
TCM "remake" had the secret wqeapon in its arsenal of R Lee Emery as the Sheriff - that just made the film
Only remake that outright sucked and made me want to set fire to the cinema was Planet Of The Apes - what a Crock

Oh I know, I didn't read the graphic novel so I couldn't comment on that. Hated the Dawn remake. If it wasn't called "dawn of the Dead" I probably would have liked it more. Hollywood needs to get their own ideas. I am sick and tired of these remakes or "retellings". TCM remake sucked. I have hope for Halloween. Mr. Zombie wouldn't screw it up. That's my opinion and I'm sticking to it.
Unknown User - Wednesday, August 15, 2007
Ummm you do realise its frame for frame from the Graphic Novel by Frank Miller?
Don't blame the film - Blame the source for repetition - the film rocked
And yes the guys film making WAS the big deal - Hes remade Dawn of the Dead with brutal elan - next up from Zack Snyder is Watchmen.
Guys stuff impresses me.

Excellent custom. However the movie wasn't excellent. I didn't see the big deal. Kinda repetitive. But the filmmaking was amazing. Maybe that was the big deal. Oh well. Great job here

Awesome flesh painting! Now I appreciate more Giant man figure.
Dog is a Carlino, isn´t it? (at least that´s how it´s called in Spain) is nice
Unknown User - Wednesday, August 15, 2007
thats a really great use of giantman - and including "Frank" the dog for scale is a very neat touch
its still not the same as facing off against a giant wolf is it?
LOL
