Head Games




















 


The End

Oh man, you guys have no idea how fun that and a bit challenging that was to pull off.
The head swap was easy; if you bought the Target Exclusive Avengers 3-pack, then you could easily use the Silvermane head that came with the latest Speed Demon figure, and voila! Instant Silvermane!
You can also put his head on the suited Chameleon figure too if you want....

The challenging part came from trying to replicate the blurry effects a speedster like SD would have when carrying out Silvermane's master plan, so I definitely played around with my effects filters for my Gimp program.

The last issue, was trying to replicate a split panel, which is what the jerk panel turned out to look like.
I've been searching online for a free comic book panel-making program, and other than Rage Master (which is primarily used for making memes) it was suggested by some fellow skit-makers to use the PicArt app for Android. Well I had to download the Bluestacks app installer first, but once you do that, you can then use any Android apps. So I did, and now I'll be heavily experimenting on making all of my future skits to look more comic book-like. So bare with me people, as I work all the kinks out in order to get the process down pat.


I've also noticed, btw, that I now have two Superior Foe members with the name "Head" in the title of their skits. Coincidence? Sure, but why leave it at that, right?
Just gotta' buy the Beetle and a Shocker figure, and maybe I can keep this unintentional and bizarrely funny gimmick going.

Nice job on the Speed Demon effects! I ALMOST bought him JUST for the little Silvermane head on the remote controlled car... cracked me up. I was at Walmart, and Toys 'R' Us today looking for that damn Mad Jack figure. -To no avail!

I can't hear Foreigner anymore without thinking of that awesome Aqua Teen Hunger Force episode with the belt that bestows upon its wearer all the powers of 70's super group Foreigner... https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_3dfGv7cD7o

Thanks King, I truly appreciate you noticing man. That whole process wasn't easy, but for the most part I like the end result.

I have yet to see Speedy at my wal-mart, but there was plenty of jack figures. Haven't been there since last week so I have no idea what's let by now. But if and when you do get SD, and have that Chameleon figure, or that Ultron, you'll instantly have a fully-realized Silvermane figure. If not, that's cool, bc how funny is it to see the former head of the MU's version of the mafia stuck on an RC car?

Ha ha, I know right? If only we all had access to that belt and make turn everyone else into dirty white boys;)

No prob, Bob...

That's funny as fuck. -I'm in Ohio, and my local Toys 'R' Us had a bunch of Speed Demons... and not ONE Jack'O'Lantern. I'm not much into newer figures... so I probably won't pick one up. I just wanted Mad jack because he's a personal favorite. I'll prolly have to get him off eBay- it's just funny how location matters.
My local Walmart SUCKS! -It has ONE short isle of "boy" toys... the rest is all girl and baby shit... The Toys 'R' Us is better- but like I said- it was all Speed Demons and Machine Men. -Nothing else.

You're hotblooded- check it and see... got a fever of one hundred and three.

Brother I feel your pain on the local wal-mart situation. Same here, as I've very often bitched to Googum about. Distribution is a key problem for us collectors, which often enough forces us to go the online route. Keep an eye out though, you never know.

But c'mon baby, don't you do more than dance?

The King of Thessaly said...

I even went to Super K the other day- they have more figures in general... but the selection was actually worse. -Still no Jack'O'Lantern.
I did buy a sweet Godzilla figure to go with the King Ghidorah, and King Caesar I bought last year.

Online is the way I'll have to go. Tell you what though- I was really tempted to pick up that Spider-Woman...

Dale Bagwell said...

It really is man, it really is. It's the only true viable alternative because at least you're guaranteed to find that figure. The prices may vary, and you might even pay a little extra than you would retail, but overall it's worth it.

The new ML Thanos BAF wave Spider-Woman? Oh yeah, she's hot as fuck, and much-improved upon version compared to her first figure.

The King of Thessaly said...

Fuck yeah- that's the one. And yeah she is... I was just like- I do not feel like getting the look I'm going to get at checkout only buying this figure.
I had to say "NO! A thirty-year-old man does not purchase a female toy, alone, at 10AM..." -It just would have been a step to far......
