Thanks Master_Phruby,

I appriciate your comments. Let me answer some of your questions. Bantha5's version of the Gargan is based on the vintage Kenner toyline. My Gargan is designed to fit with the Saga toyline with the inclusion of the ball joint head and neck. Bantha5 inspired me to make this updated version. And it is still not finnished yet, there is still more to come, the Hoover creature accessory. Next, this is trully my finest work to date, and saying that, I would like to send a copy to Hasbro to see if they would produce it. I think my idea of the hoover accessory would be a great selling point for collectors and fans. If for some reason Hasbro refuses to take my figure as a commission work, then yes, I would offer it to you all. I would need some help in making a finnal (no air bubbles) mold and cast since I do not have a preasure chamber yet.

The Babylon 5 heads as well as the rest of wave 1 of the alien head line is still in development. As you can see in the pictures, they have moved to the wax detailing stage of production. Once I have the final wax sculpt done, I will post them here and then post the final cast head in the alien head thread or start a new thread showcasing the final casted head. When done, wave 1 will contain 15 heads for you all to use in your customs. I know this is taking a long time, but I want to provide the best work possible for you all.

I am having way too much fun with wax casting and sculpting and I hope to have these finnished soon.

Thanks again for your wonderful comments and stay tunned for more updates.

Ben, I'm jealous that your workstation is so clean compared to mine!
I commented over at scum, but the Gargan is comming along beautifully.
I've undoubtably missed quite a few great customs over the past month, I'm glad i caught this one.

Good luck with the big H.  Your figure deserves to e mass produced. I would add articulation to the elbows before doing so. Beuatiful sculpt aside, Just as prety much all the figures they release these days have them, the elbow articulation would be missed.

Is the Gargan figure a Licensing issue though?  Liek the Tonnika's?

Once again, beautiful work.

P.S.  chceck you PM over at scum.

Good to have you back Ben.
 
Are you thinking of selling cast of these on Ebay as well, As you know my parents arn't
very cool about me hanging out with people "I don't know"

The gargan is great, you really got the sculpt down, don't be offended if i don't want to add her to my collection.

Exceptional work on that Gargan.  The detailing is simply jaw-dropping. 

I'm not clear on this...the head you have posted are original sculpts you have done?  That is some extremely impressive work there.  Great work set-up too  :)

I am blown away by how incredible your sculpting skills are!  They are definitely top notch.  I don't know how hasbro deals with commission sculpting, but they'd be crazy not to take this.  Those headsculpts came out great as well.  Nice work all around Ben!

Gargan is wonderful as everyone else has said. I would love a cast as well if the big H lays a big egg & passes on this.

My Buddy JMB has been gone a while, he's been doing some work with a tv show puppet or something, the heads I have no idea when they will be available. He has some other stuff to take care of first, then he may be back.
