I need me a 1:4 scale Head!

Posted in Custom Workstation

I know, I know... it sounds awful. Anyone have reasonably priced sources? Don't want to spill the beans on the project but it must look human and be very mean... Thoughts are appreciated.

Thanks for the info guys! None of my searches on the 18" figures have been great matches so far--the closest is a Sin City Marv, but he's got the medical tape all over his face (plus I'd feel half bad tearing him up since Marv is one of my faves ) I'm going to take a look at the coin banks next and maybe try my luck with the sculpt. Wish me luck!

Mezco, Mcfarlane, and Neca certainly come to mind but as far as sculpt, I carve them out with wood tools and sandpaper for a smooth finish and finer detail. I think I posted a WIP one on my site!

Thanks Red, I'm not opposed to trying my hand at a raw head sculpt, what could *possibly* go wrong?

I had forgotten about the Diamond Select 18" lines--are any of the ones you ref. done by other companies?

I have worked in this scale, but I usually make the heads out of plastic. I've never heard of casting for figures in this size. Some sculptor do statues this size but that would cost a lot. You could get a qoute from http://www.herebemonsters.org Harry Potter, Pirates of the Carribean, Terminator, Beetjuice, Edward Scissor Hands, Star Trek, Alien, Spider-man, Michael Myers, Freddy Krueger, John Lennon, Kill Bill, Hellraiser, Jason, Robocop, Sin City, Scarface, Predator, The Crow,Chech and Chong, Hannibal Lector, Star Wars, Elvis Presley, Alice Cooper, Army of Darkness Ash, Hellboy, Muhammed Ali, Rob Zombie, Leatherface, Bruce Lee, Psycho, and Willy Wonka have figures in this scale. Anime figures/Statues, Marvel coin banks, or some bobble heads may be useable. Other than that there's always Statues- Marvel, Street Fighter, etc.
