Take It Away, Please!

When I was clearing my collection shelfs. I found some little spiders, that came along with the 6 Inch Mc Farlane Alice Cooper. I thought they would look great in an 1/6th scale context. So I took some quick pictures with my MiniMe and Anna. Anna is wearing a t-shirt from the Beck collection. The mask on the wall is an 1/12 Mc Farlane item as well.

Mickus Dunedinus

Here are some shots of my MiniMe in his Roman outfit. This version of the head was painted by Chan Ada. The figure will be your host in the Making of… reports of the Rome project. The wheels will be used for an ancient waggon.

My Fave pictures 2008

And here are my fave pics 15 – 11.

15. Frankenstein Monster

frankenstein

A picture of Sideshows first 12 inch figure ever. I like the contrast between the dark foreground with the grave hole and the outshine in the center. And of course Mr. Karloff with the skull in his “to be or not to be” pose. The sepia brown tonality brings the look of an old silent movie.

14. Joe’s Garage

An image of the Joe’s Garage diorama with my MiniMe, eating some Re-Ment donuts. I love all the details in this picture and also the paper walls with the printed texture are looking good.

13. David Dunn – Unbreakable

David Dunn

David Dunn (Bruce Willis) in the Night. In the background you see the shop wall and the phone booth. The picture is illuminated by a single mini spot. I like the mystery ambience with the hidden eyes.

12. Quint – Jaws – “Dinghy”

Quint

It was a lot of fun, building this scene. I used the riverbed with real water, a lot of sand, a balsa wood pier, an Amity Island billboard and parts of the “street” and “temple” diorama to built it.

11. Dr. Van Helsing – “Cemetery”

van Helsing

Another picture taken in the “cemetery” diorama. I like the composition with the angel in the foreground and the illumination only with the lantern and no additional lights.

My Top 5 Customs 2008

This year I worked on 25 celebrity figures, mostly movie heroes and some music figures as well. Not to name a lot of extras and the kitbashes for the upcoming comic adventure. Here is my top 5 list of this year.

5. Elijah Price – Unbreakable

Elijah Price

It wasn’t easy to pick up a #5, but in the end Elijah Price alias Samuel L. Jackson made the race. I picked up the resin head on ebay US. I think it has a good likeness. For the set I used my street diorama and the garage walls in the background. Behind Elijah you can see David Dunn (Bruce Willis) following him and my MiniMe doin’ a cameo. ;-)

4. Don Vito Corleone – The Godfather

Don Vito Corleone

I was thinking of a Don Corleone/Marlon Brando figure for a long time, so I was glad, when I found this head on ebay Hongkong. The pictures of the opening scene were taken in the “Old Fashioned Room” set. I love the little cat.

3. Professor Henry Jones – Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade

Henry Jones

This is my version of the Sean Connery character. The resin head is again an ebay find. The head looks good I think, but it is made out of one piece, I would have liked a head with a removeble hat, but for now it’s okay. Well, the movie doesn’t take place in Cambodia, but this diorama is such a lovely place for archaeologists, so I couldn’t resist and took these images inside of my Khmer temple. See the silhouette of Indie Jr. in the background.

2. Alfred Hitchcock

Alfred Hitchcock

The head is my second Chan Ada commission and it’s really awesome. The location for the pictures was again the “Old Fashioned Room” set.

1. My MiniMe

Dunedin

And number 1 is of course my MiniMe. With this head a dream came true. The head was my first Ada commission. I took my first pictures of him in the travellers outfit and used the Khmer temple as location so the pictures celebrate my 2003 world tour as well.
