New Sculpt V1 Heavy Duty

Recommended Posts

The new sculpt Heavy Duty ranks second only to Flint as the worst new sculpt figures released. V1, on the other hand, had personality. So here is my try at a new sculpt V1 HD. I tried to keep the mods down on this one. Alot of my recent customs have had sculpting and trimming and alot of work going into them. The only mods to this one were the hat reversed on the Recondo head and the moustache sculpted on. The rest is frankensteining and painting. Let me know what you think.

outstanding! I have one nearly identical that is awaiting its filecard art.

 

I prefer the v1 design as well. it is bad enough Hasbro has replaced Roadblock with HD, but it is worse that they essentially changed the essence of the HD character as well. HD always reminded me of Karl Malone, a big, bad, trucking or construction working type brotha, not the rhyming, smooth talking sterotypical black man Roadblock is.

 

now, before anyone takes my comments as racist, they aren't meant to be. it is Hasbro who is actually racist in their interchangeability of HD and RB as if all black men are the same. @firedevil@

You described HD perfectly there, I couldn't have said it better. And you forgot Double Blast, Hasbro's third in the trifecta of smooth talkin' rhymin' chef cousins. @loll@

 

And I can't wait to see your version of HD.

thanks to Hasbro's lack of creativity, Double Blast is easily forgetable.
