    But he’s wearing a German helmet, so he should be grey!

      I don’t think so. It looks like an approximation (a toy or costume prop) of a modern US GI helmet.

      Anyway.

      Awesome. I’m Looking at It

    I saw a trio of people at this past weekend’s Supanova in Brisbane, Australia who did this schtick, though they carried their bases with them. Throw rugs I think.

    Nice job. The two-piece base attached to the soles of his boots is pretty inspired, I think.

    8/10. As noted the two-piece base sets the new standard, and this gentlemen should be apprenticing on Saville Row, not working in a grocery store. But robbed of perfection by the inappropriate weapon and helmet. The standard is 50′s Korea, by the way, not 40′s  WW2.

    I can’t read the link at the bottom of the post without seeing “Red Green Army Man Costume”. The duct tape is fitting.

    And I notice that he’s emulating the classic 12inch GI Joe pistol/kung-fu grip hand postions. Subtle and brilliant.

    That Army man is 1000 times more detailed than any I ever played with.

    Actually the helmet and weapon are current types, not WWII. The clothing would be WWII/Korean War style. Still, beautiful work.

    I hope nobody tries to set him on fire.

    I think that was the fate of many of my green army men when I outgrew playing with them as a kid.

    I’m not sure how normal that is.

    He’s an army man. And he is green. This is alright.

    dat trigger discipline.

    I bet he likes Raiders of the lost Ark.

  13. Mister44 says:

    It WOULD be awesome to have a friend “chasing” him with a giant magnifying glass. That should win a few contests!

  14. BijouxBoy says:

    Hmm yes. And his lace-pattern on the boots are not actually the authentic WWII style. The styles of military dress are definitely lacking in authenticity. Oh for God’s sake guys. How about just admiring his craftsmanship in creating this illusion. There really is no need to be pedantic.

    Out. Fucking. Standing. Period.

    The texture, the color, absolutely brilliant.

    I wish someone would do a costume for the worst army guy ever, the landmine tracking guy. Or maybe the walkie talkie guy.

  18. Red Robot says:

    Perfection would be a bent barrel on the rifle.

    no video? i want to see him move!

    he worked a full shift clothed entirely in waterproof tarp?  it’s a wonder he didn’t sweat off that latex paint.  awesome, awesome costume [ahem, I mean "rad" :) ] but you couldn’t pay me to wear it while working indoors.

    lends credence to the old adage:  “if you can’t duck it–fuck it”

    Yeah,  I shop at that market and it’s totally awesome!  Andy’s Market in Sebastopol, California FTW!
