I finally found a half decent in-scale motorcycle for Vigilante, and now I'm turning my sights to a white winged horse for Shining Knight.. Is there a line out there somewhere with anything that would work?

I've heard people talk of using the Peagsus from the old Clash of the Titans line for Winged Victory

Yeah, I'm still looking for one also. Haven't found one in the right scale yet.

You might go to Mattel's biggest competition. They make lots of horses...

It's a BMW model, that's all I know because I threw the box away. It's hardly perfect, but it works for me.

Last year (Halloween, Valentines?) Target Ithink had a candy filled Harley type bike that was dang perfect scale and design. Wouldve just needed a touch of customizing (mainly paint, since it was transparent) to really work. This thread just reminded me I never grabbed one. Ill have to keep my eyes out again.

Well, here's mine:

This is my second Victory. I used the horse from The Hunchback of Notre Dame (Achilles, I believe) and used wings from some Joynt figure. I also used the ball sockets from the Joynt figure, drilled holes in the horse, and Superglued them in place. That allows the wings to move, or be removed for storage or transport. I wish the ball sockets were white, but I'm not going to paint them -- the paint would just rub off.

Nightwing, it's from Wal-mart, as I recall. It's a Harley Dyno-Glide by Maisto. That's the actual paint job, too. Costs about $3, I think. The problem is that it's too small. (It's also not an Indian, which is what Vig rides, but it's as close as Maisto comes.) I think it's 1/18 scale, and the League is about 1/16. If I screwed the math up on those, I'm sure someone will set me straight.

I like your diorama. I can just imagine Superman shouting out orders.

"Batman, it looks like Doomsday is gonna throw that car! Try to stand in it's path! Canary, use your scream thingy but wait until I'm in the way first! Fate, none of that sissy magic crap! Just stick to pounding your fists on his back! Sand, stand-by to use your sleep gas to anesthetize Fate when Doomsday finally notices him and breaks every bone in his body! Steel, do some pushups on the car before it crushes Batman! Vigilante, guard your bike and fire a couple of warning shots straight up in the air to confuse him! And Aquaman, go talk to some fish!"

Aquaman
Founding member of the Superfriends
most popular to very young kids
King of 3/4 of the earth's surface
Commands all sea life
Swims faster than any of us could
has tough skin
has enhanced strength

but because someone noticed friends give him a lift to the water, never gets any respect.

The people we should be poking fun at are Robin and the Wonder Twins who always ended up being liabilities on the show.

Aquaman has always been one of my favorites since I was a little kid. He's just different from the rest of the League, which is a good thing.
