    Been toiling away at a Ga'Mede recently in anticipation for SS86 Perceptor.

    It's made from a Marvel Universe Bucky Barnes, pictured here with a block of chocolate that the seller sent me for some reason.

    What a legend.
    Still waiting on the head to arrive - it's touched down within Australia and should be here within a couple days.

    It's specifically this one of Quicksilver from those Ex Man movies or whatever. :p

    I mean, the part is on the wrong side but ehhh, close enough?

    Head arrived. Head painted. Final product's not that good, but oh well. It fills a niche.

    His outfit is just as painted-on as the original's, so no problems there!

    (Years ago I was gonna make a Ga'Mede out of Joe parts but never pulled the trigger - a Crimson Twin head, Cobra Commander torso, Cobra Trooper arms and legs ought've done it.)

    Well if they cast Evan Peters to play Ga'mede in a live action film adaptation, in an alternate universe where this is not a super obscure reference, then I blame you.

    I am a fan of adding the humans and other characters to the collection too, which means if you want an articulate figure you have to customize it yourself. I was looking at these littele marvel figures as jumping off points, but am not sure the actual height, how tall did he end up? (didn't Ga'mede do so mass shifting of his own...?)

    I used Megablox figure from DG for a Spike that turned out to not be horrible.

    I'm not sure, he seems Microman sized from the pictures I've seen from Badlands.
    He's about the standard G.I. Joe modern height, so roughly just under 4 inches.
