After releasing the main set of the movie Casablanca in 28mm, Sally4th launches a Kiki campaign to fund the pulp miniatures compatible with this range.

While I like Sally 4th's buildings, I'm going to have to say that the sculpting on these figs are awful. The Lady has a schnozz so big on her she looks like Jimmy Durante in a skirt!!!!

Have to agree Murphy Casablanca is my all time favorite movie but this does nothing for me.

Very sad….I have to agree very poor castings and nothing like the movie characters.

Yes, the figures from this Kickstarter are crap. Not even a passable likeness to the characters they are supposed to represent, really dreadful.

I just hope that having these on the market does not stop someone else commissioning figures for these characters from someone who can actually sculpt human anatomy and likeness.
Compare these to the Movie Monster figures that Studio did for their last Kickstarter to see just how awful this lot are.

Ditto all of the above. Very disappointing.

Oh, c'mon, Gents!

No, none of the sculpts are see can be called "portraits" of the principal characters, and such would have been ideal.

But there are plenty of other Pulp figures out there that also leave room for improvement, and these would work perfectly well for most game uses.

After all, we don't ALWAYS have Casablanca for our Pulp games, and foreign uniformed cops give our story lines more possibilities.

There's no reason not to buy any of these figures for all the other uses they can serve.

And, "No!," I'm not the sculptor.

Ditto to all the critiques. Most of these characters are already available from Pulp Figures (and others). My rendition of the " American" is here, upper left armed and unarmed.

I buy practically every pulp civilian figure available but I will not be getting these.

sorry about the inversion. No idea how that happened. Refer to figure bottom right :) or try opening image in new window.
