“Forgotten Heroes 2017, here we go again”

Well here we go again, incredibly “Forgotten Heroes” is back for its second year and as with last year I thought I’d start with a little statement of intent as to what I hope to achieve over the next four weeks and what figures I’m going to be using as the basis of my “Forgotten Hero” conversions. Well first off (if you are reading this on my own blog rather than the FH site) the header at the top of the page should give you a bit of a “heads up” as to where my main two submissions for this year’s challenge come from, yes it’s “He-man and the masters of the Universe”. Regular readers of my blog will know that these are not my first “Masters” figures, in fact I already have ten more of these muscular chaps in my collection and these chaps were supposed to completed in March of this year (or March’sters of the Universe month, sic). But due to restrictions on my time and lethargy on my part to be honest, they just never got done. So I have decided to kill two birds with one stone and have shunted them down to this month instead (Masters of the June’iverse). Anyway the two characters I have chosen to recreate from this famous toy line in miniature are Beast-man and Jitsu, a couple of villain’s from “the evil forces of Skeletor!”.

To this end I have pulled out two more of the muscular “dolly” figures I bought from “Bronze age miniatures” a couple of years back (when Jez and I started the He-man project), and with the application of some “greenstuff” and some blunt instruments (the bluntest being me), I hope to have some fairly recognizable renditions of said characters by the thirtieth of June. If all goes according to plan (and it rarely does!!), I hope to have time to add another non “He-man” bonus figure to my tally. This very simple conversion of a character from one of my all-time favorite comic books, will also give me a possible “out” if it looks like I have no chance of finishing the two figures above, but more on that in a later post. Below I have listed all the other people taking part in this year’s challenge, please click on the inks below to visit their own blogs/ sites and at the bottom of the page I’ve added a link to the official “Forgotten Heroes International” web-site where I will be re-posting all the relevant posts from myself and the other contributors, so please check that out too.

  1. Best of luck Roger, really looking forward to these.

  2. This should be a lot of fun, Roger, and I’m really looking forward to seeing what you come up with with your uber green-stuff skills. Two more entrants for your annual Top Ten I’ll wager 😉

    • Thanks Simon, two of my favourite characters this time, (you’ve got to have beast-man haven’t you?), though I’ve always been a cautious of doing Beast-man as he’ll need quite a bit of “modding” and Jez did such a cracking job with his that I’ve been putting him off to be honest. Still if you don’t try… and I’ve always got my secret back up plan to fall back on. I’ll trawl the rest of the sites in a bit to see if anyone else has posted.

      Cheers Roger.

    And I look forwards to seeing Beast Man and Jitsu progress. 🙂

    • Great news Leon, you are of course most welcome. Really looking forward to seeing what you come up with as your “Knight models” are always a joy to behold.

      I too am looking forward to seeing progress on “Beasty and Jitsu”, just a shame it’s me who has to progress them!

      Cheers Roger.

    Hi Roger, I tried to email a contribution for Forgotten Heroes to the email address given under ‘Contacts’ but its failed to send. Is that address no longer valid given the demise of WSD?
