Figure Conversions


Vil men form 3000

Just to illustrate the differences a comparison shot.

Arms and legs have all been moved from original pose and all three figures use a common body….not much difference betwen no.6 and 12, fairly subtle in fact.

The Schizoid Man


Vill no 12 A

Been meaning to do this for a while now. Here is No.12 from the “The Schizoid Man” episode.

I slightly modified his stance and angled his head, so he is slightly different from My No. 6 figure.


Yeah Baby, Yeah !!!!


Vill Austin 1Vill Austin 2Vill Austin 3Vill Austin 4

“Groooovy baby”…It was just a question of time before Austin Powers found himself being held against his will, alongside a lot of other 1960’s agents in North Wales!

Typically he has chosen an outlandish blazer and neckerchief combo from the Village stores, he has been given the number 66…which means he might well be a neighbour of Mrs peel (65) !!!!!

Anyway, we love Mike Myers, when are you doing Austin Powers 4????…I think i have a plot for you 😉

The figure is actually the same body I used for Number 6 with a head swap and “Green stuff” Neckerchief. I very carefully reposed the arms and legs so that the figure looked like he was doing Austin’s mad dance routine from the opening shots of the movie..its as close as i could manage, I’m not a sculpter! very happy with this figure. You can buy the parts I used on the Crooked dice website


Freedom for Tooting


Vill wolfie 1

“Where am I? This ain’t Tooting Broadway!”

Yet another favourite show when I was a kid was “Citizen Smith”, not least because that’s my home town. In a Special episode (very likely a christmas special) he had a holiday in Portmeirion….this got me thinking…..and it fits in nicely with my concept of populating the Village with my TV and film heroes!

Clearly Wolfie has just arrived as he hasn’t had time to put on his Blazer and Deck shoes, chinos, and to swap his Che Guevara beret for something in straw.

I think he might quite like his stay.

Figure is from “The Winter of 79” range available here


The Gene Genie

Another of my all time favourite shows is “Life on Mars/Ashes to Ashes”.  Here is Gene Hunt with his Audi……somebody has scratched the paint work and he is not a happy camper 😉
