i bought a hugo strange secret files specifically for the head
i had a jimmy olsen silver age figure i was going to use for the body but he has the wrong neck type
most dc direct, at least lately, have ball neck joints, connect to the body
(like riddler from hush)

the silver age superman figures have a peg connected to the head

anyway
any suggestions for a body? jimmy olsen was a little slimmer than i'd like, if i cant find another body i'll cut jimmy's head off and glue hugo's onto it, but i'd prefer a ball neck joint so i can retain mobility

thanks

If anybody has any other suggestions for bodies for Hugo Strange I'd love to hear them. Can't wait to see the finished product, dhunter.

If you want to use a DCD body, other than Jimmy, Two-Face. from the same wave as the Huge head, could work. If you do not want a bow tie, you could use Two Face from Long Halloween or try to mod an Unmasked Clark Kent. DCD does not have much in the way of "suited" figures. I know I am still waited for Lex in a suit.
Hope that helps.

I think Jimmy Olson is your best bet. Like Medusa13 said there are not that many guys in suits to choose from.

Hugo turned out great. Got some very nice customs there. I especially love Maxie Zues, Red Claw, Spoiler and the Clayfaces. You have talent!

With a little effort to modify Hugo's noggin, it really does work well on Jimmy's body.

ya i went with the black suit
hugo wears a black suit mostly in the comics, at least i checked 3 issues with him all had black suit and he always has a bowtie

that body is great cept the figure actually has no neck
you cant really tell but jimmy had a stupid old style dc direct peg neck, not ball joint

and hugo is ball joint marvel legends/dcuc style
so there is really nothing between head and suit
