Very nice sculpt. Paul Walker?

That’s what I’m guessing. This falls into the category of over-done head sculpts we talked about before. So many actors out there, and we keep getting the same ten.

True, although it is finer than the others. When he was still alive (rest in peace), it seemed impossible to find his head sculpt, now there are so many.

I kind of like it but then I always was a sucker for a handsome man

He always reminded me of one of a duo I used to see in spaghetti westerns Terence Hill

I looked him up and I can see the resemblance. Apparently Terrence Hill was actually Italian!

Yep. His real name was Mario Girotti. He and Bud Spencer (real name Carlo Pedersoli) Made many movies together, most famously the Trinity films.

very true....even if you just think of current military themed things - would love to see Max Martini, Michael Irby, Max Theriot, Neil Brown Jr, AJ Buckley, Justin Melnick...that's just from one show! So so many more.

It's a really nice sculpt - up there with the likes of DamToys male sculpts, but I'm always loath to buy movie star likenesses.


My favourite Terence Hill/Bud Spencer movie was 'Watch Out We're Mad', an atypical non-western slapstick comedy. I was about 10 years old when I last saw it, though.

Although of course Bud Spencer's finest moment was when out of nowhere he punched a horse in one of the Trinity films. Happy days of 1970s random animal cruelty...




(it's OK, it was a staged punch!)

It is indeed a very nice sculpt. Though I have to admit I didn't even connect it to the late Paul Walker until someone else mentioned it -- for whatever reason, it doesn't really look a lot like him, to me. Certain angles, I can see it, but something about the eyes looks different.
