I was talking with my friend one day, I realized my favorite x-men is patrick stewart (not prof x, but how amazing sir stew is portraying him) and it reminded me I wanted him as a figure pretty much since the first movie was announced.
If you follow my gallery, you already know I sometimes might make a custom figure kinda once a year, so I don't have fodder to frankensteinize ...
The recipe is the story:
I had (circa 2k) and old playmates picard that I think is an amazing likeness, I took the head and sanded off the hair - of course that same figure didn't make it till today, but kudos to a website I could find new one, I did need to fix some things (nothing anyone would even notice without comparing I believe) mostly on his nose and gave him a bit of an expression
But the body was no good
I wanted him to fit in the "movie scale" (7 inch, neca, select) I found a data from the 4horsemen, but those figures are gigantic, no way he could fit on a marvel legends wheelchair(but what nice hands!)
Hope was renewed when one day I found in a $2 box this snl goatboy (don't ask, I have no idea) and the rest was a weekend of fun
