Small Soldiers is one of my favourite films - sure it did badly at the box office, but Stan Winston's effects work is top notch!
I'd LOVE to get my hands on some original props (or even the FOA Schwartz/Stan Winston produced figures - though with only 25 made even they are commanding BIG money if they ever come up), but sadly my budget won't allow it, so the next best thing is the Hasbro toys.....
The only ones Hasbro produced that are the correct size are Archer and Chip (a pity, because the other Gorgonite figures they produced are excellent, just too darn small) - available as both talking and non-talking. It's obvious that hasbro worked VERY closely with SWS as the sculpts are really very good.
Hasbro's 12" figures:
Talking Chip Hazard
The sculpts are good, but the paintwork is sucky and the colours aren't accurate, so.... using every reference I could find ("The Stan Winston Effect", "Cinefex" and "The Small Soldiers Scrapbook: Behind the Scenes" and the DVD) I repainted them both.
Partially repainted Chip Hazard (excuse the picture quality, this current camera is pretty cheap...):
Painted: Eyes, lips, dog-tags, comlink, grenade, belt, pouches, gun, leg holsters, boot treads, shin guards.
Completely repainted Archer from head to foot (and added new belt buckle from the talking version of the figure)
Now I just need someone to sculpt the rest of the Gorgonites and Commando Elite in the correct scale...... I really want a Brick Bazooka!
