8" Grim Ghost

The Grim Ghost is one of Atlas Comics' best characters. And he makes a mighty cool Mego figure.Here Matthew Dunsinane, our roguish highwayman-turned-demonic-bounty hunter, sports a shirt and vest combination courtesy of John Paul Jones from the Heroes of the American Revolution series. The vest is dyed with Rit's purple. It's made of a soft vinyl and easily soaks up the dye. I added a simple lace-like detail to the shirt, which gives it a nice touch of accuracy. His boots are Doc Mego Romulan repros. And his cape is a also Doc Mego. For his his head I chose a Brian Leitner full mask sculpt. I found a nice mid-night blue paint for it that perfectly matches his pants.
I'd like to offer a hearty thank you to Phil over at the Atlas Archives. A few years ago, back when this site was just an idea, he posted a picture of my Grim Ghost figure. The Atlas archives are a great resource for anyone interested in the history of Atlas/Seaboard Comics.
