1 ART FIGS PROJECT 8: BEN DEROSA!!! on Fri May 04, 2018 3:21 pm

Gents
ART FIGS PROJECT 8: BEN DEROSA is a go!
- We are using a cover name as I was informed that peeps still keep tabs on non-official merchandise
- This will be a head & hat, clothing, and accessory, set with a paint option by Jeff Vargas.
- All updates for this project will be posted on this thread.
- As the plan is to produce the other 3 characters of the show, (LIL’ MIKE, BIG DAN, PARNEL) we are keeping prices as low as we can.
- Ordering info will be sent later this evening

Que theme music!

Sorry.

No audio and video. We got to keep this in stealth mode.

I'm going to tell my father about this. He's doesn't necessarily "get" the 1:6 hobby, but I got him 1:6 figures of Lee Marvin as Major Reisman and Charles Bronson as Wladislaw from the film THE DIRTY DOZEN years ago. They were made by DML as CyberHobby.com exclusives. Marvin and Bronson are his two favorite classic Hollywood tough guy actors.

My father is also a classic old school Western fan and he fondly remembers the show.

Keep us in the loop Franciso. I may possibly join this project.

UPDATE:
The crown of the hat still needs to be adjusted to the correct style.
Texture will be added and side profile will be better adjusted..
Input is welcome!!
While we still haven't decided, we might go with a necked sculpt as Ben kinda had a double chin and we can work that better on a sculpted neck.
let us know!!!

While I don’t have a vested interest in this project, I think something of Lorne was lost between V. 4 and the final. I personally think v. 4 looks more like him.

That figure's going to have to put on a little weight to make a convincing Lorne Greene.

Great looking outfit and sculpt.

Yeah.  He ate way too many steak sandwiches, etc. from the Bonanza / Ponderosa steak house chain.

Proto suit is in!!! The gunbelt is something im working on. The inticate "buscadero style" cant be reproduced in 1/6, so im experimenting. Let me know what you think... This belt is lighter, just seeing if i could get the scrolling. The final will have moreof an orange tinge like on the show..

I have to tell you, siquisiri, this is a really fine project. The sculpt and the outfit turned out mighty damn well.

The only real shame is that I didn't like Bonanza. Smile

The paint job looks a little flat, but otherwise it looks good.

I like it. I think Stryker means he's very clean and clean-cut. While I don't expect that from a cowboy type (what with all that dust in the Old West), I haven't seen the show, so maybe that is the right look.

The paint looks great in hand, and im sure some weathering will also help! lol
