Spaceballs: Dark Helmet!

Postby Morgan19 » Thu Apr 07, 2011 10:38 pm

"Dark Helmet", the goofy bad guy from Spaceballs, was made using BrickForge pieces, electrical tape, Playmobil pieces, a custom torso decal, silver paint, black spraypaint, and chopped LEGO pieces.

DUDE THAT'S AWESOME!

Seriously, what a brilliant and exceptionally well crafted figure. It really looks great, Jamie, it seems like each figure you make seems to surpass the last in the level of cool, but I think this may take something extra special to be outdone.

There's two, actually-- 1) the silver shoulder guards are part of a breastplate and 2) the top-most part of the helmet was originally (I think?) a metal-grey knight's helmet; the extra nubby bits were trimmed off, smoothed over, and the whole thing painted black.
