Adventure People Highway Trooper

As with all my previous Adventure People figures, I tried to keep the ''simple'' look and feel of the original figures. I started with Lady Jaye’s helmet from the DTC Comic Pack (44) as this was the closest that I could find to a ‘’CHIPS’’ helmet. After that, the torso and legs were pretty straight forward. Bucky suggested using 25th Breaker’s giant melon to fill in the helmet after my first few head options were disappointing.

After I thought I was done, I looked at different reference pics online and realized that I had painted the helmet the wrong color and omitted the badge, so the figure went back to the WIP stage. I had a spare Renegades Law vest in my fodder, so the changes took no time at all and yielded a better figure. Although the original Adventure People line did not have a police motorcycle, I’m tempted to make one now to complement this figure.
Head: 25th Breaker
Helmet: DTC Lady Jaye
Torso, upper arms: RoC Zartan
Legs: Renegades Cobra Commander
