Introduction: Olive Man and His Pimento of Justice!!!

About: I'm cheap and like to use what I have on hand and I really enjoy taking things apart to salvage parts. Rather than be a precise engineering type of person, I'm more of an enthusiastic tinkerer. Making things i…

I made this figure about a year ago. It is a superhero I call Olive Man. He has a Pimento of Justice which shines forth to destroy evil-doers. (OK it is really a 3 volt red LED hooked to a battery case and switch I got from a dollar store. The wiring was inspired by several LED flashlights I had seen here on Instructables).

Olive Man's head is a small ball I found in the backyard which I painted olive green. I mounted it on the body of an alien figure. I accomplished this via one of my favorite figure mod techniques. I use an awl to poke holes in the parts I want to join and then use a portion of paper clip as a support. Then add a dab of super glue to hold it together.

Then I used epoxy to secure Olive Man to the battery pack.

    Be sure to post it so we can see how Olive Man develops. Or would it Progeny of Olive Man? I'm envisioning an entire series of B-Movies.

    Olive Man lives in his creator's basement and hasn't bired a publicist or you know saved the world so he's not a household name...yet. :)

    Yes, but we own three actual greyhounds, as well as numerous greyhound statues. You might say we are big fans of greyhounds.

    Actually that is a statue of a dog behind Olive Man, but you are correct it is a greyhound. We have three real hounds bounding about the house. If you check my ible re: Cost Cutting Tips you can see a pic of our youngest grey lounging on the couch.

    Nice. Quirky and awesome. Btw, if you figure out the macro mode on your camera, your photos will look a lot better (in focus at short distances.)
