Looking for a passable Liam Devlin model with a tweed jacket, hat and shotgun for TEHL.

Ropey Irish accent optional…

Thanks!

I'd think any pulpy character in a suit ans tie would work. Reaper makes this figure, which could be good.

Cannonfodder used to have an IRA range. He looks like a figure that was in that range.
I think it's OOP though.

How about the Irish gamekeeper from Artisan's Thrilling Tales range?:

Ok, so no tweed, but methinks the mini was intended for exactly this purpose….

One of the Footsore IRA with shotgun looks a good fit for Devlin with a bit of surgery to the hat.
Film trivia of the day, Michael Cain was originally offered the part of Devlin, but the IRA weren't popular in seventies Britain and he chose to do Steiner instead – making a pretty fair job of it IMHO. Donald Sutherland made a good Devlin too and his Irish accent is a lot better than Dick Van Dyke's cockney!

Woodbine Design of Gripping Beast has what seems to be the perfect figure. Upper right. Or with dog, lower left.

Remembering I read this post some time ago, and just having received an email from Bob Murch at Pulp Figures, I am inclined to believe the figure in the lower left would make a more than reasonably good Liam Devlin.
