Pulp Fiction - Jules Winnfield & Vincent Vega

New project but not that hard to do, the two hitmen from one of the best movie of all time. I just love that movie and it is an old dream to add these guys in my collection.

Not hard to built because the headsculpt are the best ou there with the HotToys Octopus and Headplay Travolta. Just add some real hair for one and sculpt them for the other one.
The trick is the suit, once you got them, it almost become way too easy. The suit of Jules is a TTL but I can't remember the suit of Vincent.


Maximus - Gladiator

Finally finish my Maximus with the helmet. My 3rd attempt on this character and I learned a lot through this project since the 1rst one. How to sculpt an armor, the details on the chest and the rest of the armor. It was fun but I'm definitely not ready to do another one, it is the last and I'm pretty sure about it.


Han Solo - Star Wars ep IV

I wasn't very satisfied with all the releases of the Sideshow Han Solo, each and every headsculpt had a problem somehow. The best Ford headsculpt come from the Sideshow Indiana Jones and a good friend had some recast of it. I picked one and resculpt the hair and put it on a Soldier Story body. Now I'm happy with it ! Of course a couple of details like the pants of his gun (from the Hasbro one) could be upgrade but it's fairly enough now.

As I said, the best Ford heasculpt is the Indiana Jones :

Luke Skywalker - Star Wars ep VI

Except the headsculpt and the lightsaber, nothing comes from the Sideshow. The black suit is pretty easy to find from a regular figure so are the leather boots. The cape and the leather belt are handmade and the body is probably a Dragon (I think) and much shorter too respect the size of Mark Hamill.
I had to resculpt the eyelids to erase this stupide "surprise" expression (especially with the open mouth) he had and gave him a huge eyes. Also had to repaint the hair. Since when Luke is a red head ?

Here what the headscultpt looks like without any mods, bewildered face and ginger hamster hair. But trough the years and all the new Lukes, this one is still the best Mark Hamill headsculpt. :

John Locke - Lost

Punisher - Warzone

release a wonderful figure, it was a great surprise with this Punisher/Stevenson from Warzone. Not many things to do except erase is depressive expression and add the nose hole on his skull.
Just resculpt the eyebrows area and repaint the hair in black and it was done.

Here's the original release and look how depressed his face really is :

Red Skull

Karl Ruprecht Kroenen - Hellboy

Once again based on the Sideshow, they did there best with what they had but the size and the shape was horrible for Kroenen. Too tall, too big, the boots was cheap and give not any possibility to pose this guy.
1rst of all change the body. He's on a TTL body, much shorter. The head is a bit oversize with the helmet on.
Switch the boots with a DID leather boots. I repainted the headsculpt and the rest of the helmet. I also change every straps of his leg and arm sheath.
Repaint his chest armor and use a better lace on the side of his armor.

Here what this guy looks like straight out the box :
