"Thuh-there's only room for one-uh King in this-uh town!" It is a well-known fact that rock'n'roll musician Elvis Presley met with President Richard Nixon in December of 1970, and a slightly less well-known fact that he volunteered his services to the United States, asking to become a federal agent in the Bureau of Narcotics. The man's love of guns and badges was extreme, and so too was Nixon's desire for all-American, anti-Communist propaganda. Elvis got his badge. He was not, however, made an agent or given any assignments. In OUR boring universe that is. But what if... Of course, an agent needs backup like a king needs his court. Ebony Foxx (50179) and Horace Jackson (80023) seem like they would be ready to get the job done. From minor threats like Communism... to more outre threats: these agents are here to counter threats and look fly as hell while doing so! *** RAFM apparently has three separate and distinct Elvis-with-guns, at least two of which must be impersonators. This one is called 'The Pretender,' but it's the Elvis-est one of the lot in my opinion. Ebony Foxx is a gorgeous sculpt. I need to put some groovy flowers on those polyester pants. Action Jackson already got a show-off post, but it would be unfair to keep him out of this shoot. Another dynamic cat. Guest appearances from Walther's Merchant's Row, a couple of action figures, communists from Pulp Alley and Pulp Figures, Hydra Miniatures' war-bot, and a few other oddities.
Staining instead of Painting
CliffordHolm posted a topic in Tips & Advice: PaintingI've recently acquired a horde of minis from the 1970's. I've striped the paint off and was wondering if there was a method or product to use to stain the miniatures instead of repainting them. My reasons for not wanting to paint them are I really want to showcase them as a historical item, not display my painting skill. Also some of the sculpting is poor compared to what you can get today, so I'm almost thinking that some not worth the time investment of painting them. Those are the ones I'm wanting to stain. and the reason why I don't want to leave them as is because I don't want them to oxidize (rust). Any suggestion or advice would be most appreciated. Cliff
