120 Head Sculpts

I used the long weekend for 35 paintjobs on some new heads. After I finished them, I thought, you might would like to see some pictures of all the heads, waiting for a body, some fancy duds and a setting. Most of them are movie characters, waiting for their performance. But some of them will be used only as extras in some settings.

Friends with Money

Jennifer Aniston as Olivia in Friends with Money

Here is my first custom figure of the year. I found the head on ebay Hong Kong. When I bought it, I had no idea about a figure, but the price was okay and you can never have enough female heads. And… nice suprise: I got two heads with different hairstyles for the price of one. Recently I saw the movie Friends with Money. In one scene Jennifer wears a french maid dress. I had such a dress in my 1/6 costume box. So the idea for this figure was born. I tinkered a little room improvisation and here we are.

Jennifer

Btw, Jennifer will be a character in my comic adventure as well, so I took some more pictures in normal streetwear.

My Top Ten Faves 2008:

1. Alien – Captain Dallas

And here is my number 1 of this years toy countdown. Again it’s a Hot Toys production. Captain Dallas from the first Alien movie.

Captain Dallas

Why is this my number1? Simply for that: I love space suits. And a figure in a space suit is really something extraordinary. I haven’t bought the figure yet, because it is – like all Hot Toys figures – bloody expensive. This figure would look marvelous in a diorama.
Tomorrow I will post the Top 5 of my this years customs/kitbashes.

My Top Ten Faves 2008:

4. Gandalf the Grey

And again “The Lord of the Rings” and again Sideshow. My number 4 goes to Gandalf the Grey.

Gandalf

This is an awesome head sculpt and a great figure. Please Sideshow, don’t stop it! Give us more. I would love to see the whole fellowship, some female characters and some Orcs as well.

Have a merry christmas!
btw, Gandalf would make a good Santa, wouldn’t he? ;-)


Dec 23 2008

My Top Ten Faves 2008:

5. Mr.White

This is my number 5, the Sideshow figure Mr. White from the Quentin Tarentino movie “Reservoir Dogs”

Mr. White

Harvey Keitel is one of my all time favourite actors. So I was glad, that Sideshow produced this figure.


Dec 22 2008

My Top Ten Faves 2008:

6. Samwise Gamgee

My number 6 in the countdown goes again to Sideshow Collectibles for their “Lord of the Rings” figure “Samwise Gamgee”.

Samwise

That is an excellent likeness. Sideshow really did a marvelous Job on this little Hobbit. I hope they will bring us more Lord of the Rings figures or at least Merry, Pippin and Gimli to complete the fellowship.


Dec 21 2008

My Top Ten Faves 2008:

7. Obi-Wan Kenobi

My number 7 goes again to Sideshow Collectibles: Alec Guinness as Ben Obi-Wan Kenobi from the 1977 “Star Wars” movie. For a great likeness again.

Obi-Wan

I won’t really call myself a Star Wars fan, but the movies became a part of pop culture. I prefer the old films, because I don’t like the fight scenes in the new productions. All the Jedi knights including Yoda jumping around like rubber balls. Was that really necessary?


Dec 20 2008

My Top Ten Faves 2008:

8. Professor Henry Jones

My Number 8 goes again to MediCom Toys for their Professor Henry Jones Figure, based on the Movie “Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade”

Henry Jones

Medicom did a great job on the head sculpt with a good likeness of Sean Connery. And Connery is one of my all time favourite actors. Again the sad news is, that Medicom toys are much too expensive, so I had to skip that one as well. But I built my own custom figure of Professor Henry Jones So there is no urgent need to buy this one.


Dec 19 2008

My Top Ten Faves 2008:

9. Shaun of the Dead

Here is number 9 in my Top 10 favourite countdown 2008. Sideshows “Shaun of the Dead” figure Shaun.

Shaun

I loved the movie and Sideshow did some nice work on Shaun (Simon Pegg) and on Ed (Nick Frost) as well. And with Sideshows line “The Dead” they are in good company.The facial expressions are maybe a bit overdone. Another thing that bothers me are the visible joints. It’s always a problem with short sleeves. Would be nice, if Sideshow would do some “Hot Fuzz” figures as well.
I haven’t bought the figures yet, but maybe Santa will bring them.

Captain Leland Stottlemeyer

Here is the second part of my little Monk crimescene story, featuring Ted Levine as Captain Leland Stottlemeyer & Tony Shalhoub as Adrian Monk in the TV show “Monk”. The head sculpts were done by Reggie from the OSW Board. Most of the extras wear BBI police uniforms. The victim as a Jakks Pacific figure.
