As i was talking with my friend one day, i realized my favorite x-men is patrick stewart (not prof x, but how amazing sir stew is portraying him) and it reminded me i wanted him as a figure pretty much since the first movie was announced.
if you follow my gallery, you already know i sometimes might make a custom figure kinda once a year, so i dont have fodder to frankensteinize ...
the recipe is the story:
i had (circa 2k) and old playmates picard [link]
that i think is an amazing likeness, i took the head and sanded off the hair - of course that same figure didnt make it till today, but kudos to ebay i could find new one, i did need to fix some things (nothing anyone would even notice without comparing i believe) mostly on his nose and gave him a bit of an expression
but the body was no good
i wanted him to fit in the "movie scale" (7 inch, neca, select) i found a data from the 4horsemen, but those figures are gigantic, no way he could fit on a marvel legends wheelchair(but what nice hands!)
hope was renewed when one day i found in a $2 box this [link]
and the rest is a weekend of fun
seems those snl figures finally found some use huh? [link]
wow, you still reading? congratulations, you just got to the part where i thank you for the appreciation - and patience
ps: i still can't take a good picture though...*facepalm
