Sorry - much love for the simple minded Caboose. <3 Best character in Red vs. Blue and I think many shall agree with me there.
Anyway, finally finished Caboose!
As stated in his WIP pic, I added a braided metal frame inside the doll that allows for better posing than on Sarge, my prototype.
In trying to add more stability, I ended up stuffing Caboose much more compactly... As a result I had to extend many of the armor pieces around the torso and midsection... So this guy has been loving nick-named Chubby. (Trust me, the jokes have not stopped in the workshop about this!)
In addition, the visor on his helmet ended up being pushed back. I think this construction accident actually gave him a more innocent and curious expression which fits with the character.... that or I was working too late without coffee again and sniffing far too much of the fabric tac fumes... hmm....

Next doll to be made is Church - but I'm having a hard time finding the right colored materials for his armor. (Yes, I am far too picky sometimes.)
