But it's weird, I nearly posted that the Doc figure was reminiscent of Jimbo's custom (until I had another look).

Strangely enough that's the same head used for Big Ben.

I do wonder if the Joecon team had a good trawl through the BFTB customs when planning this release.

thanks shogi! and ya I agree, it really needed a RED CROSS on it somewhere, it was sort of the Iconic thing for DOC IMVHO


I think it is a trademark they can't use.


could be, its a RED CROSS symbol, so maybe they wouldnt allow it? or something


I think they had the same problem with this Doc.

Ironically I had thought to use the same Lifeline base as my AF Doc for a while now. :doc: If only I could find one in decent shape.

When will the attendee stuff be announced?
When confronted by a difficult problem you can solve it more easily by reducing it to the question. How would the Lone Ranger handle this?

Yeah looks good, but does need a red cross! Just wondering what the other bits and pieces would be though.

I don't think so, seems the general consensus is that it's Big Ben V6 from 2003:

That's exactly what he is. I've had that exact test shot for several years now.

The Red Cross simple is off limits. That's why the original Lifeline had that circle logo instead. I asked one of the designers specifically about that, and he said it was a copyright issue.
