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

Inspector Spacetime

"The question isn't where, but when!" The Inspector and Reggie just might be some of the most obscure characters I'll ever tackle, but I'm pretty proud of how they came out for less than 30 seconds of screen time to work from.

Six seasons and a movie!

Constable Reginald Wigglesworth - Inspector Spacetime
