So, after finally finishing the Dreadnoks, I figured I needed to make a Joe. I've been wanting to make a better Falcon for awhile now and got Alyosha's Lt. Falcon kit to replace Hasbro's. The kit is awesome and top quality. Thanks, Aly!

So here's my attempt at making Lt. Falcon resemble his card art:

Falcon and Footloose:

Recipe:
Everything you see is the Lt. Falcon kit that can be bought at BrokenArrowToys.com, except for the knife and holster added to the webgear (Alley Viper), the backpack and the shotgun (25th Falcon). Aly provides a shotgun with the kit and although I like it better, he couldn't hold it properly after I added the knife and holster.

Thanks, for the kind words guys!

spot138, Footloose isn't a kit. He's one that I did a little over a year ago. Although, I do believe Aly has a Footloose kit in the works...

Hot damn, that is beautiful **tear**

I really need to get off my ass and finish correcting that MESS that Hasbro made and called Falcon. Other than the accessories, a complete fail on their part.

Finally, a Falcon I can respect. Great job. And Footloose is awesome too.

Really nice paint job on this one, and on your older Footloose as well. Fine work all around!

As for the scarf, I see that is split next to the collar. If you want to repair that, just carefully peel it loose, then superglue it at that point (if you have some insta-set that would be a good idea too). When it's set, then put a bead of glue all the way around the inside where it meets the collar and that should prevent any further issue. If that does not work, contact me, and I'll send you a new one. Hope that helps!

I'm really jealous. That's a great take on Falcon. The Tiger Stripes came out very good.
Aly, is that head sold seperately?

Alyosha

No, it isn't. Sorry!

Too bad. Lots of folks would buy it up.

Thanks, guys! Your kind words mean a lot.

Footloose, the custom made after your namesake has a huge noggin and it's hard to find a helmet that fits him that doesn't seem frickin' huge on that particular head. lol... I plan on redoing Footloose anyway though. So, hopefully I can find a better head and helmet combination for him.

Really nice paint job on this one, and on your older Footloose as well. Fine work all around!

If you want to repair that, just carefully peel it loose, then superglue it at that point (if you have some insta-set that would be a good idea too).

Thanks, Aly! The quality of the figure is top-notch and is even better in person than the pictures on your site. As far as Footloose goes, I'm looking forward to redoing him. ;)

Haha... It's funny that I didn't even notice the scarf not connecting completely until after I had the figure completed. I was thinking of filling the gap with some Fixit sculpt, but I might give your way a shot. I'm going to have to look up insta-set, as I'm not familiar with it.
