It was purely accidental, this likeness. I was going for an old John Huston type miner. I got a lot of requests for miners, panning for gold swinging picks and what not. He’ll still make a pretty good miner once I put a body on him but I had this urge to use him for a 1:6 scale action figure I have not been happy with.
Hasbro makes a lot of action figures. Some of them are quite good, some of them aren’t. I have a really nice Storm Trooper, Darth Vadar and a really nice C3PO. I even have a fairly good Darth Mal (except for the boots that look like blobs of unrealized clay). The worse one I have is a certain Jedi night.
Among my sideshow collection (super expensive, but very detailed and nice) and HotToys collection that Jedi was a crude stick figure; except the cloths. I decided a while ago to at least replace the poorly articulated body with one I bought off of Amazon that was totally posable, and figured I would just slap the crummy head on.
Now, I will use my miner which I call Alec. I included a mortice to fit the pin for a HotToys TTM18-21 body. And although it was printed on my printer, it still looks pretty good. Wish I could afford a nice Shapeways print instead
