The best Harrison Ford headsculpt I've ever seen!

http://www.toy-world.com.hk/forum/vi...extra=page%3D1
I know its always a matter for debate and taste, but this is the best rendition of ford I've ever seen. Why cant Sideshow & Medicom get this close?
I'm hoping that the Takara Genx Core version will get as close as this. At least then it may be worth the $400+ their charging, apparently it will come with 4 different outfits too. But no-one has seen it yet.

What do you think guys?

That's actually pretty spot-on for an older Ford....

Might try and get hold of it, but I don't know who's going to produce it. Does anyone here?

That headsculpt looks like an angry George Clooney sculpted out of a pruned apple. Trevor Grove's sculpt for the Premium Format Indy is the greatest sculpt I've ever seen. Dead-on Ford right down to the trademarked smirk.

Is it standard that these things are stripable? Does he come with a change of attire? Maybe you could buy a teensy little teddy and re-enact the Frantic showdown...

It does look a lot like Ford...but, almost in a very "caricature-ish" way. Yes, I realize that "caricature-ish" isn't a real word...

but, there's something about that sculpt that, even though I like it, looks a bit too exaggerated or catoonish for me to claim it as the most realistic or spot-on sculpt of Ford yet. Just my two cents, though!...

Perhaps I should have added in '1/6'. Like I've said before sculpts of 'Harry' are very subjective everyone has its own merits and everyone views them differently.

That's awesome. The only other worthy additions are the VOTC Han Solo & Medicom OT Indy.

I don't like the "Air Ford One" scuplture, neither the "Blade Hunter", to be honest.

I love Trevor Grove's work:

check out this version, without the color on it... even better: http://www.sycophant.net/trevorgrove/

And take a little look at his works here, amazing!!!

Yeah, the sculpts in this thread are decent. The bladerunner one isn't really all that good. But Trevor's work is always fantastic. My favorite of his is the KOTCS Indy sculpt. yes, many of you complain about it, but his sculpt is truly perfect:

That does look great there. Perhaps the paint ruined it.
