Wild Bill (2000)
I used to think this figure was a bit of a boring repaint. I guess I was usually looking at it in bad lighting or something, but I could have sworn that it was mostly grey, and covered in the same sort of washy texture that was common in previous series. I was wrong. Setting it up under the lights, I was surprised how much I liked this color variant.
I don’t know much more to say about the figure beyond the paint job, as I’ve covered the original. I suppose this could stand in as a Night Force version with its more sundued and generally darker color scheme. Unfortunately none of the Battle Corps original’s uniqie acccessories (aside from the hat) made the trip over to this new version.
On a totally unimportant side note, the head sculpt of this version of Wild Bill has always reminded me of MST3K’s Doctor Clayton Forrester. I even attempted a custom using the head back in the 90s. It’s a good thing I got married, had kids and stopped having the time to devote to such strange behavior.
