FANTASTIC VOYAGE CUSTOM ACTION FIGURES (GREG WHALEY)
"Fantastic Voyage Custom Action Figures"
I have to say the 1968-70 animated cartoon series
happens to be my all time favorite animated series.
Back in 2006 I was thinking, Why didn't Mego toy
company ever make Fantastic Voyage figures? I then
began gathering my supplies that was needed so I
could began my project. The head sculpts took
several hours to do because this was my first time
sculpting heads at that time. These heads on these
figures are prototypes as well as the figures.
The costumes took the longest time. I made atleast
5 one piece suits for Johnathan, Erika, and Busby.
The 5 outfits was to tite or certain sleves was to
long or they couldn't fasten close in the back like
they should. It was getting very aggrevateing and
costly, Because the fabric I was useing was not cheap.
The 6th try I got it! Glory be to God. I was down to
the last of my fabric and I continued on with
assembleying of the costumes. And once done I was
satisfied and this is how they turned out in the photo.
Gurus outfit was easely done. The only problem I had
was sculpting his head, because I didn't know weather
to just sculpt the head and then make a cloth turbine.
Instead I just sculpted the head with the turbine on it.
The Voyaqger in the photo is my second Voyager. The first
Voyager pieces wouldn't fit together, so Moebius models
sent me a new kit and it worked perfect.
