My CFP Playoff Teams


Recommended Posts

The 2021-22 CFP Playoff teams I painted. Now I can replay the SEC Championship Game, the CFP Semi-Final Games and the National Championship Game. All hand painted Haiti Repro (HT-11-W) Figures. DSC03158.thumb.JPG.b698e4e4a4ce8889bc5867887ab93f57.JPGDSC03159.thumb.JPG.be8728d7b38e2aa1e9ee4ffa6cd5ecaa.JPGDSC03160.thumb.JPG.0be7f01868ecff52c392a45ad777352c.JPGDSC03161.thumb.JPG.82b4f3f9db5c47fad431266e4fe529f4.JPGDSC03162.thumb.JPG.bf24f3edb2dcbd74ed4fa5b2369ce9b1.JPGDSC03164.thumb.JPG.07b81d60ab7be777780a6e9c1a1fa88f.JPG

Wow, those look great! I especially like the facemasks, just straight up painted on instead of finicking with brass. 🏈

Yeah, just the way I have always done them. Something I like to call "motorcycle helmets" because they resemble full face motorcycle helmets. Started a long time because I just thought that is the way that Tudor had always done them, but I think that Miggle Toys started doing them like this in the 1990's when they went to "Made in China" figures. I have never liked the brass facemasks or any of the others that people use. To me, they just look out of proportion to the figures.

My thoughts exactly. The brass masks look way too big, and while I'm far from a stickler for 100% accuracy I still don't like the look of borrowing-older-brother's helmet that they give off either. Considering there's only 3 (as of last count) sizes of figure heads (4 if you count the TTQB, but he's already rocking a uni-bar), you'd think Tudor would make plastic masks that conform perfectly to the curvature of their own figures. Then again it's all just a logistics nightmare right now so I can't entirely blame them.

I'm debating on whether to even give my current set facemasks at all, since their faces already look beaten in. Adds character, and saves me money/time/paint. 😁
