Doc was the Joes first medic. Before Lifeline and Stretcher and Trucial Abysmia there was Doc. This one's been on my to-do list for a long time and then I finally found the perfect head which is from Dragon. The shirt and pants are from DID and were dyed to match.

I'm still calling this a wip because he doesn't really have any accessories yet. He'll be getting a helmet and a stretcher eventually.

I'll have to get a couple more shots tomorrow in natural light cause his glasses lenses are really dark green and the reds arren't as orange.

Awesome custom as usual, Mando. Your figures are what Sideshow should be, IMO.

Awesome Doc, very cool! I've got to make one of this guy. What DID pants are those and which DML head sculpt did us use if you don't mind me asking.

Great figure, and a perfect sculpt choice :)

I dunno if they still have them, but Old Joe Infirmary used to have a lot of 1/6th scale military medical supplies, and is a pretty reliable dealer:

As usual great job Mando, but what happened to the one from the poll?Looks true to the 3 3/4 inch version just like the others.Sideshow really should hire you and put you in charge of their Joe line.

No problem.
This is the uniform:

The shirt and pants don't match as closely as they appear to in the pic, I just used a little taupe Rit dye to get them darker and closer.

and the head was this guy's:

I'll have to check that out! Thank's for the head's up, Cryo!

Hey, Starr! Airborne is kinda coming along but I still haven't found the right jumpsuit for him. If I could find a tan GS9 jump suit that'd be perfect, but I don't one exists. So far I've got a head and a vest for him. For some reason the Poll Joes always get caught up in details.:cool:

I think Rock N Roll won it? He has show in a couple pics.

Rock won the first one but I think Starr is talking about the second one which was Airborne.


that looks perfect for Doc! nice work.

Thanks, man!

Yep I was talking about the second poll.Doc still looks badass though.As far as a tan jumpsuit ,I believe one of the Toys R Us BBI figures had a tan jumpsuit and I just might have him still in the box out in the garage.I'll try and check later.PM me and I'll send you my email addy.

Thanks for the info on the parts, I got them ordered and on the way. I also finally found a Polly for my shipwreck, thanks for that info too. Looking forward to seeing what you do with Airborne.
