Jinkies, After School Cartoons Scoob

I'm forty a lot years old and I have no shame in saying I love Scooby Doo :) Or cartoons in general honestly. I have a ridiculous amount of dvd sets of old cartoons that I used to watch as a kid, which are always great to throw on in the background while painting or building up in the studio.

I went back and re-based those meddling kids and their dog onto clear bases. These figures have seen a lot of work in the board games Betrayal At House On The Hill and Clue: Great Museum Caper - which if your not familiar is an absolutely brilliant hidden movement tabletop game.

I think the Mystery Inc. gang would be perfect for Pulp Alley. I know Chris at Sally 4th has put together a few games using them in the past.

So fingers crossed I can get the Mystery Inc. gang to bring their meddling ways into PA in the new year.

And finally, I also got one of Crooked Dice's ninja figures completed. I had him painted up to resemble Storm Shadow from the old G.I. Joe cartoons and comic books, who was always a favorite of mine. Growing up Hasbro's G.I. Joe toy line had hands down some of the greatest figures and playsets produced - the aircraft carrier USS Flagg... I'm not sure there was ever a better toy made!

Lots more Hollywood-esque figures being based up currently, so look for more posts like this before 2017 ends :)

As always, thanks for looking!


  1. Oh man ... I begged for several xmas's for the GI Joe aircraft carrier ... alas it was not to be. Had the base though ... that was cool :-)

    1. I hear ya on that one - I would stare at that thing in those Christmas catalogues all day long. I did manage to get the base as well (that jail was super cool!), and the giant hovercraft, and the Joe and Cobra planes too. I always liked how you could switch out a few panels on the Cobra plane with battle damaged ones :)

  2. I love the Scooby gang minis and managed to snag the myself this Xmas!

    1. Thanks! That's a brilliant X-mas gift, they are fantastic models - I've even had my eye the post-apocalyptic versions of the gang, they look really good too :)
