Frank - The Manipulated Dead

I'm really pleased with how this one came out. It was my first attempt to really sculpt something. I've added details like hair, pockets, buttons, and collars to figures before, but this marks my first real head sculpt. I'm disappointed I lost the detail in the teeth, and it's certainly not perfect, but it's a very encouraging first attempt.

Frank is the temporally displaced "Manipulated Dead" from Donnie Darko, who has to guide the Living Receiver into restoring the Primary Universe before the Tangent Universe collapses... I think. It's all rather confusing. But it's an awesome character design.

Parts Recipe:
ROC Cobra Commander - Head (beneath the sculpting)
Storm Shadow - Feet
Havok - Internal Balljoint Hips
Chewbacca - Modified Body
Prince of Persia Dastan - Head


  1. This is awesome! I've been thinking about making a Frank custom myself. Yours turned out great!

  2. That is absolutely killer! You should put a background with the numbers (clock) counting down " Twenty-eight days, six hours, 42 minutes, 12 seconds. That is when the world will end". Or a picture of the DVD cover where Frank is prominently displayed. or Donnie: Why are you wearing that stupid bunny suit?
    Frank: Why are you wearing that stupid man suit?

    Great work!
