Captain Falcon 2 by HondaWhiteFox Captain Falcon 2 by HondaWhiteFox
I painted up my Wild Willy 2 figure to look like Captain Falcon. Some parts were tough to do, but I like how it turned out. Now I'm afraid to drive it for fear of wrecking it.

*Update- This car has now got a spot in not one, but two RC car magazines, in their sections for readerís cars! I sent in the pictures yesterday and got an enthusiastic note back from two of three magazines I submitted to, saying theyíre going to put it in an upcoming issue (possibly December). I simply canít believe it!

I would pay good money for one, hey, do you know if the figure has a face underneath? because, you could cut a bit of the front off to make it more realistic.

Underneath the mouth guard of the helmet (not the mask) you mean? No, unfortunately he doesn't.

Are you suggesting you want me to make you one?

well, how much would it cost for you to make me one?

Well for just the figure (without the Jeep body) I'd guess about $50. That's including the costs for the parts I'd need and the shipping charges for the parts and to get it to you.

Well, i found a lego-man who looks a tad like Captain falcon, do you think you could tell me how to do it, like attaching the falcon and painting.

Just get yourself some model paints, (I use either Testors or Tamiya brand, but anything meant for plastics should due) some different size brushes, and some flat stock of plastic sheets (for the falcon).
Your best bet it probably with a hobby shop, but some arts and crafts type stores might have all that stuff too.

For only $8 plus a buck or two extra for screws you can get the same figure that fits in Wild Willy 2, if you'd rather paint that up instead. [link];P=Z

Save your money and some day you could. Compared to other models, Wild Willy's not too terribly expensive.
