I So Want to Build These Guys


The Herculoids.

Nuff Said.

I remember watching these guys as a kid. Along with Thundar, Space Ghost, Blackstar and Flash Gordon, they were among my favorite cartoons. Throughout my life I have constantly found myself returning to them - toys, monster designs, even finding epidoes of them on YouTube. Now, I have this crazy idea to try and build them in 28mm.

All of them seem pretty straight forward and should be easily converted from various figs. Zock, Igoo and Tantor all resemble various fantastic or prehistoric creatures. The human family are all just barbarians and there is no shortage of those in 28mm. And come on, Gleep and Gloop, they are pretty much amorphous blobs. I need a new project.



  1. Ah yes the Herculoids, I remember watching them and Thundar the Barbarian. The fact that you could remember all their names puts you one up on me. It should prove interesting to see what you come up with.

  2. We'll have to see. You could say the project is in the exploratory stages.

  3. Oi! "Like I need a new project" is my line, buster! :)

    The Herculoids did, in fact, totally rock.

    I think I could manage to sculpt Gleep and Gloop. Just maybe.

  4. Oh man, I remember this show. There was one episode where a baddie was turning everybody into stone. His powers were useless against the big grey guy, because you see he already is stone. In your face bad guy.
