Captain Apollo Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:45393  
Name:Captain Apollo
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Battlestar Galactica
Creator:Wonder Toys  
Date Added:December 20, 2012
Base Figure:Mork by Mattel
Height:3.00 inches
Completion Time:72.00 hours
Articulation:4 points
I used a Mork figure as the base because it was originally the same body Mattel used for Starbuck and Adama in the Battlestar toyline from the 70's. I didn't want to use an existing head so I sculpted as close to Richard Hatch's likeness as I could get out of clay and sealed it after baking. I then sculpted the jacket, belt, and holster. The only thing I didn't sculpt was the gun.

Thank you. I love creating the packaging just as much as making the actual figures.

Thank you! That means a lot to read. I was hoping to get it to look like it could fit in the original line.
