Riddle Me This…

Who wears a red mask, is an expert fighter, uses guns and sharp objects, talks a lot, but isn’t Deadpool?

Red Hood, the paper toy, is now available for download.  This one comes with his trademark knife and twin pistols of death.  This baby also comes with a jacket ( yet another PTA first! WooHoo!!! ).   It’s also compatible with the recently released bike.

Fear me! You know you want to.

As mentioned in an earlier post.  I’ve been watching a lot of DC OVAs recently.  So far, my favorite from their catalog of quality animation is ” Batman: Under the Red Hood “.  I highly recommend you to check it out if you haven’t yet.

Alright, enough of that, now let’s proceed to some assembly tips.  Specifically, assembly tips for the jacket.  As always, pre-fold and pre-cut as needed.  Then insert the arms where you usually place them on the template.

Prep it like this.

Insert the arms.

After the arms, attach the jacket onto the toy figure just like you would a normal jacket in real life – one arm after the other.  Yes, the arms go through the slits on the figure too.  The “collar” goes around the neck to help keep the jacket in place – it works similar to the cape used on Thor and Robin.

That’s it.

Hi Brucey... remember me?

    Looks, good. I’d have to say that ‘Under the Red Hood’ is my current favorite DC OVA as well. The bike looks to be a good color match for Hood too.

    Is the jacket loose, or does it get glued on? if it’s loose, then you could add a slit to Hood’s back to allow the knife to be tucked in under the jacket. ^__^

    Oh! and slits on the sides just in front of and below the arm slits to allow for shoulder holsters. A little graphic alteration to the pieces under the jacket for illustrated holsters and knife sheath would be pretty wicked actually… lol

    You sir have very good taste! “Batman: Under the Red Hood is top notch!” As for the bike, I purposely colored it red, so it goes well with both Robin and Red Hood. Plus, you can never go wrong with the scarlet color, just ask Hellboy LOL.

    Yes, the Jacket IS loose. You can take it on or off the figure as you please. My default setup for this specific toy is the knife on one hand, and the two guns “holstered” in the collar of the jacket – making for a sort of classic Wildcats Zealot look (blades sheathed on her back). You can actually see a pistol butt peeking from the back in one of the images posted.

    I’ll leave the holster slits etc to those interested to add them to the template for now, great suggestions though. This is because I’ll be releasing more accessories in the future – holsters, scabbards, armor, and so on. It all depends on the character I’m basing the the toy on of course. I’ve already started with Red Arrow’s bow and arrow; Thor’s hammer, helmet, and cape; and now Red Hood’s jacket.

    Oh, let’s not forget about the bike. Now that’s one big accessory LOL.

    Oh that’s what that flappy thing is! I thought it was part of the collar that hadn’t been attached yet and you were showing us how to put it on. ah well. As for accessories, I’d love to see you start doing stuff along the lines of the Mobile Dog Wandam line. Similar concepts and philosophy to your PTA stuff but with a focus on ‘gear’. ( http://www.ne.jp/asahi/4/low/wandam.html )

    Oh, and let’s not forget the Rex, accessories you did too ^__^

    I’m totally getting ideas for an original paramilitary squad with Personal Mech Systems or Power Suits…. Hmmn.. this may warrant further investigation.

  4. James Ronald Lo says:

    Yes, I’ve seen those. That guy who does the “Wandams” is crazy talented!

    I’m a big fan of anime and everything related – especially the ones with mechs. I’m very sure PTA “Gears” and vehicles will come soon enough. I just have to get a lot of other things out of the way first 😉

    Your idea of a paramilitary squad with power suits sounds interesting,… you just made me think of mechs and suits all the more. LOL.
