Artist Scott Pettersen’s 12 inch Blade Runner action figures are immaculate, from the faces of Harrison Ford, Sean Young, Rutger Hauer and Daryl Hannah, to the costumes, to the make-up and tattoo details, to the “essence of the characters.”
I work in wax when I sculpt and you can get a lot of detail in wax. The finished heads are made out of resin — the kind I use is a clear, translucent color, so I cast it in a light color and then build onto that with different flesh tones. With all of them I use airbrush and there’s a lot of blending, a lot of thin, thin layers — I think on mass-produced figures all the paint is opaque and nothing is done with layers so it’s not as realistic.
They’re not for sale. Neither are those “Monty Python LEGOs” from the other day, for other reasons.
Na na, na na, na na.
