Partial Gas mask experiment and no where else to post it

I think Cadians is looking for some sort of gasmask thing for his sig. I was thinking this may have some potential. Thoughts?

Does that make him much taller compared with other minifigs? It looks like you've stacked two neck things up, which would make his head a bit taller. It looks cool I guess, but can we see a comparison picture with a fig without the gas mask?

I was just wondering. It looks pretty cool.

Sure thing Blitzen, here you go.

With the added bulk I don't think it makes that much difference. Besides, most mini-figs have some sort of hat, armour combo so any difference will be marginal at best.

I think the added height makes him look more badass.

Thirded. It kinda makes him appear all around bigger, like some bio enginered super soldier, with out doing more than extending the neck.

Fourth'd. Tall people are awesome, and that firefighter neck-thing looks great.

Like everyone else, I think it bulks the mini out without making his neck look like a giraffe. I like it.

Great, we'll it seems that this easy modification has worked with you all. I've found the best mini-fig heads that I like for this are the sharp toothed cannibal like head, or something alien looking. I'll show you here...

Image

See, some seriously sinister super soldiers (alliteration for Blitzen).

Image

I wanted to try J+B's shoulder armour and it looks quite effective and doesn't get in the way.

Image

Image

The added height doesn't seem to look odd either. Thanks J+B.



Image

Another idea for using the fireman rebreather part is with this type of torso armour. It somehow handily clips into the back quite neatly making a fairly nice alien style armour.

Image

As before the height isn't too bad either. Hope you like and as always feel free to use any of this.
