From Dusk Til Dawn Seth Gecko (George Clooney) 12″ Custom Action Figure 1:6 Scale

George Clooney’s first major Hollywood film was also one of his best: 1996’s From Dusk Till Dawn co-starring Quentin Tarantino and directed by Robert Rodrigues (Desperado, Sin City).   I’ve wanted a 1:6 scale action figure from it ever since I saw it – over 15 years ago!  My skills and the availability of civvie parts in this hobby have both finally progressed to the point where I can create a figure that doesn’t look like total crap.   I find it surprising that 1:6 manufacturers still haven’t created a great George Clooney sculpt.  For my custom figure, I used a head from an old Three Kings headsculpt set and customized it to look more like the young Dusk Til Dawn Seth Gecko Clooney.   It could still be better, but it will have to do for now.

Apologies for the vanilla pix. One day I’ll make a base for this and try to shoot something tricked out as is the fashion now.

FORMULA:
Body: Triad EVO — Neck lengthened (This is an underrated figure! No other smooth arm bod has its range of articulation!)
Head: Three Kings Clooney + Wahlberg 2-pack set– De-aged, sculpted new hairdo
Gun: Intoyz Cold Python — Turned into shorty Astra-Unceta Terminator
Vest: Art Figures — dyed
Wife Beater: Mattel Ken — Yes!!
Pants: Unknown suit — definitely came from one of the contemporary over-priced ones
Cowboy Boots: Triad — repainted and weathered
