    Great work! What helped me a lot were the Hasbro toys! You find them for pretty good prices on ebay and most of them come from the US, so you don't pay as lot of postage as I did ; ) the Gorgonite ones are pretty good, I bought Insaniac, and he's pretty close to the movie one (except for hight, that is). Like the way you twisted Insaniacs skin! Find that very hard each time, also for cloth foldings ;-)

    I used to have them myself but my brothers were always destructive, my youngest brother gave one of them away to a friend of his :/ thanks man I'm glad you like the direction they are going, I'm working on his hair now which from the screen used puppets shows the hair, and hair in separate pieces and each strand of hair is then also seperated. Molding those are gonna be fun. The twisted skin is a part I'm concerned about in the long run but I'll keep at it. I took the same approach that I do when making folds &twinkles in clothes, I roll out small snakes/worms of Clay and lay it where I want it, then I use a ball stylus tool and pinch all the edges to the surface after that I use my fingers to smooth it out and go back with that same ball stylus to refine the shape a bit, after that I'll use a flat edge tool to add small lines

    Like it a lot! Amazing how far you have come in such little time! I found some great reference pics of Ocula from all sides including feet mechanism etc. I will send them to you in a few minutes. Regarding Troglokhan: Forget his torso! When Archer is done, take of the leather straps off his torso, and you have Troglokhan's Torso! Troglokhan IS Archer, i.e. arms, legs (both without armor), upper body, abdomen, all is Archer. The head was created most probably from an expression head of Archer (you can see it on one of the photos of the expression heads I sent you). When I have made the last payments for the Archer and Nick Nitro expression heads, I will make a Troglokhan head immediately ;-) and post some pics!

    im glad you like what I've done so far. I have been working rather quickly by my standards my wife says I'm doing too much but I just can't help myself. The reference would be extremely helpful, I know I have to definitely reduce the body but that's not too difficult. I see what you mean about troglokhan and archers body builds, the legs and hands look to be drastically different when compared to archer but again that shouldn't be an issue, not sure when I'll be acquiring enough silicone to mold archer when he's done so I may just decide to sculpt troglokhan from scratch as well, but I'll cross that bridge after I rough out the body for punch it. I'm gonna check those images again for the expression heads. I look forward to seeing the awesome things you have in the works as well I sure wish I could obtain a few of those awesome head casts but I can settle for crudely replicating what I can

    The legs are Archers without the leather/leaf or whatever covering. They have the same bend, length, everything... Did I send you the reference pics of Troglokhan already? You will get heads, don't worry, what about an exchange for the "box art"? In case you (or anyone else in the forum, that is) is good with graphic programs, I would love to get this box art thing moving forward. That can't be all that impossible. If someone can and will make a box of Brick Bazooka, Archer or Kip Killigan, I will make him or her an offer that cannot be refused ;-)

    I haven't received te references yet for him but I'll defi take a closer look. As far as the boxes go I can definitely put something together with all the reference we have from the film I'm sure I can do justice with the front but as far as the back of the box when it comes to the text in not to sure what butch and kip's actually says. But as far as imaging, I'll definitely start tossing something's together to see what I can do for you. Mind me asking what the offer is and would it require me making all 3 boxes at once or would one at a time be ok?

    i started playing around with the box art on my PC using the program sketch book pro. This is extremely early look at what I did in 45 mins so it does not reflect what the final product will look like. I also sketched out and made a mini mock up of the box ( gorgonite version since its reversed) using some pieces of cardboard. Very rough so again please excuse the lack of details, I just wanted to be able to show you that I'm serious on helping you out in your venture. Click image for larger version.

    im glad you like it. I will definitely keep you posted on the progress, I've taken loads of screenshots from the bluray and I intend to get as much detail as possible in this, I want you to be 100% satisfied with the final result my friend. I should be able to put a couple hours into it tonight maybe I'll have a rough shot of the sides, top,bottom & interior insert. Once all that is roughed out I should be able to get a rough sketch of the background that's on the back of the box before I start refining the details. I'm taking it easy on the sculpts due to lack of space and to prevent from running through my clay supply. It will keep me busy between sculpts and I'm enjoying the process as well. I wonder how many people thought about making these boxes out of necessity or just cause. Sorry for the many emails, I just get excited on the projects I work on. I hope you don't mind

    I was wondering if anyone here could help me out, I'm looking for these images in a higher resolution. They come from the collectible trading card set. To the beat of my knowledge, these are the images that are seen on the back of the commando box in th movie. I'd appreciate any help I can get.

    i don't have the cards so the scans you could make would be extremely useful. As long as the images in the book aren't obscured by any text or logos then I could use those instead, the gorgonites as well if you have those too for my boxes awesome! A vacuum chamber is a must. I'm looking over those screenshots, the bluray versions I have don't seem too much clearer to be honest, If they are they're rather far away so you loose detail or something is in front obscuring it like a shelf or an arm. But I'll try finding closer ones. I'll give coloring them a shot but I have a hard time with color replication especially since I don't have any digital art tool like a drawing tablet or a drawing stylus so everything I do digitally is done with my compuer mouse. I'll send you those shots and see what you can do and we'll go from there we'll talk soon.

    So, regarding the back of the box, I've been thinking... I have a book in my Small Soldiers collection where the characters are described and where some stuff regarding the merchandise is explained (it's a kids book called "Dossier from the files of Irwin Wayfair". What I write hereafter are quotes from the book, slightly adapted...
    Now, considering that on the back of Archer's box in the brown box it says:

    ""The Gorgonite menace prows the world, searching for the lost island of Gorgon"...
    "The Gorgonites are the scum of the universe, and the Commando Elite are taking out the trash!"
    Gorgonite Credo: DESTROY ORDER
    PROMOTE CHAOS"


    one would say that on the brown box on the back of the Commandos boxes it should say something similar like: "A new age has dawned... never before have you seen soldiers like Major Chip Hazard and his Commando Elite. They await your call to ACTION! They're the roughest, toughest, coolest action figures around. They are the best of the best of the few and the proud. Together with them, you will destroy the Gorgonite enemy! The Gorgonites are the scum of the universe, but YOU and the Commando Elite are gonna be takin' out the trash!" And of course the "Built in 2-ways radio - Buy a second Commando and communicate with a friend" since that's what the guy reads on the back of Chips box. Oh, yes, and given that part of the respective writing is also in bold letters, the Commando Elite needs its own Credo... "DESTROY CHAOS PROMOTE ORDER" would be pretty lame, though ;-)
    I just noticed that under each of the small Commando pics there is a description of the respective character. In my book I found the following (I know its not exactly matching the content of the yellow writing under the small pics in the movie, but whatever, its something :-)

    Name: Link Static
    Rank: Private
    Function: Communications
    Favorite Weapon: Information
    Capabilities: Wiring electric devices, satelite communications and tracking systems
    Personality: Loves gizmos. Joined military to get access to the technology
    Spoken lines: "Awaiting dispatch of orders, Sir!"

    Name:
    Kip Killigan
    Rank: Private
    Function: Assassin
    Favorite Weapon: Ninja stars
    Capabilities: Hand-to-hand combat specialist
    Personality: Completely wired and more than a little twisted. Gleefully gets into his work
    Spoken lines: "Sharp as a razor, sir!"

    Name: Butch Meathook
    Rank: Private
    Function: Tracker, pilot, and point man
    Favorite Weapon: Super octane flamethrower
    Capabilities: Acts as scout and reconnaissance man. Expert sniper
    Personality: Quiet brooding type. Enjoys being alone, especially when stalking his prey
    Spoken lines: "Lethal at any distance, Sir!"

    Name: Nick Nitro
    Rank: Private
    Function: Demolitions
    Favorite Weapon: Multi-munitions pack
    Capabilities: Sets mines and other explosives
    Personality: Steady as a rock. Feels he's just doing his job. Completely dependable
    Spoken lines: "Demolition is my mission!"

    Name: Brick Bazooka
    Rank: Sergeant
    Function: Artillery
    Favorite Weapon: High-pulse laser rifle
    Capabilities: Ammunition expert
    Personality: Gung-ho soldier. The military is his life.
    Spoken lines: "Ready to go full-bore, Sir!"

    The titles would have to be the same as on Chip's box, and there it says:

    Name: Chip Hazard
    Function: Team Leader
    Capabilities: Military tactics
    Strategy
    Covert operations

    So there is some stuff that is comparable between book and box writing in the movie... at least the yellow lines under the small pics are three as well, i.e. name, function and capabilities... what do you guys think?

    Also, I just found out that in front of the boxes where there is the name of the figure it also says their domain... Troglokhan is the "Gorgonite Barbarian", Slamfist is the "Gorgonite Enforcer", Chip Hazard is the "Platoon Leader"... Under this in the second black box it says right next to the green dart/triangly what special equipment/weapon etc. is included with the respective figure: Slamfist comes "With Super Granite Mallet" and Chip Hazard comes "With Super Action Machine Gun". Next to the right dot under the green dart/triangle it says: "Lifelong Lithium Procad Battery", same as on the back of the box.

    Awesome! I think we can put something credible together using this as reference. I'll play around with things a bit later, it's still early for me here but I know it's later where you are. I'll let you know what I come up with and we can edit it as we go. I'm having great fun to say the least

Ive started roughing punch it's body but not much I can do with my clay reserves running low, I don't suppose anyone out there would mind sending me some oil based clay XD a simple $1.00 donation to my patreon profile https://www.patreon.com/Jok3r0314 from a few of you would suffice in terms of acquiring more clay.

ID:	437108 Decieded to mess around with some line art for kip, needs a lot of work but it's going rather well. Once I get this to where I like it, I'll be able to head over to the pc and start digitally tracing the finalized line art. After that I'll be able to see what I can do in terms of color and finally add some shading. If he comes out well, I'll start tackling the line art for the other commandos. I'll keep you all posted. Don't hesi to leave your feedback.

    Adam rifkin, one of the writers for small soldiers shared my progress on this project with his 11k followers on Twitter. He even mention he working on getting a sequel made but he can't say much on the topic. Pretty sweet that we're gonna be able to see these guys on the big screen again. I just hope they don't do a full cg film. Hand made real life props is the best way. Only time will tell.

    Sat in front of my crappy pc today and checked to see how feasible converting my traditional sketch to a full in digital image. I was skeptical at first and highly doubtful to be honest but after all the components came together, I feel like I may just be able to do this box art justice. With that said I'll leave you all with my progress. Let me know what you all think Click image for larger version.

    Today has been fun for me. I pcked up a $130 scanner for $20 received my small soldiers trading cards in the mail, and I've gotten a few responses from some people who were or are directly involved with small soldier (past or future). I reached out to Adam Rifkin in hopes to finding some reference materials for this project. He then referred me to Stiles white, who also worked on small soldiers, he also responded with encouraging words to say the least so he's looking into what he may have. Finally Stan Winston schools took notice of my progress and seemed pretty pleased with my progress, so much so they say they are rooting me on and can't wait to see my collection. xD im pretty happy if I do say so myself.

    This is sooo cool! Love the artwork so far, and also the fact that you get in touch with people! I might get some reference shots from the two folders that were sold by the propstore! Dan Hill is looking into it right now. And the way the guys from the movie and SW school support you is just awesome! Let's rock'n roll! You get these darn boxes done and I'll do the content ;-) Will make some pics of the molding process tomorrow, its nearly midnight, so I'm too tired to get some shots done today. But the rubber doesn't stick to the silicone at all and neither does the paint (so far... crossing fingers and shiver...).

    I'm extremely glad you like the direction is going. Thanks to Twitter I have the opportunity to communicate with these guys directly, it's amazing. I look forward in hopes that those folders have something very useful. I can't believe that I've gotten such encouragement from the guys at Stan Winston, watching that movie when I was a kid I never would have imagined I'd be in any kind of contact with those masters. It's an awesome feeling. I try to keep in mind the time zone but I just get overly excited at times, sorry about that. thats awesome, I had a feeling the silicone wouldn't stick being that the figures are made of that urathane foam since dilicone only sticks to silicone, but the paint was my concern. I await to so your awesome work. I was wondering if you could help me with bricks rifle for the front box art. I can't seem to work it out. Once I get that I'll be able to start on the digital line art. I may end up doing chips next since we have extremely clear reference for those. I still can't make out what butch is holding in his hand other than the knife so I can't really start on his either. That leaves nick or link. Personally I'd like to do nicks art because how awesome the pose is. I've run dry on my oil clay supply so I can't start on the limbs roughing for each sculpt.
