Spike closeup by TrevorGrove Spike closeup by TrevorGrove
Spike from Buffy for Sideshow Collectibles.

This is for the upcoming Spike maquette statue. I was just hired to do the head...

I grew up at a time when Buffy was just hitting airwaves, so I have a lot of fond memories of watching that show. This character was one of my favs, no doubt....back when he was a villian, anyway. hah

sculpted in wax, 1:5 scale.
more to come,
Trev

I love everything, but it was definitely a shock to find BtVS paraphernalia in your gallery! xD I almost had a heart attack when Angel popped up and now I'm trying not to fall into a pit of precious fangirl memories over Spike. xD I don't always fangirl, but when I do, it's hard. Amazing work. C:

Wow! This came out PERFECT! You got this little scar and even the little fine lines right! Amazing detail! You are a master at your craft, hun! Well done!

Do you sell the heads separate or do we have to wait for the statue to come out? :)

Thanks!

I only offer unpainted castings of my Firefly heads. The Buffy pieces were sculpted for Sideshow, and will only be available as part of the statue.

This is truly beautiful work trev a we've come to expect from you. In a weird way I wish they'd release busts of just the heads really as they've so beautifully observed.

These are fantastic! I've got a few Spike figures, and the face is always a bit off. These are perfect! Can't wait to see the paint job!

AHHHHH! It's so good. I love Spike, well I mean, who doesn't love Spike.

Again I am so happy you get to do these heads. :D As I have mentioned before some of the Buffy stuff was well, crappy at best.

He was a pretty great character, huh? I was really happy I got a chance to work on this one, and I'm glad you like it.

Hopefully I'll get to do some more Buffy stuff for Sideshow. It's like revisiting my childhood...Tuesday nights were Buffy nights.
Thank ya' much,

Should be another vampy dude to be revealed by the end of the year. :) Not hard to figure that one out, huh?

Hmm, let me take a wild guess...

Does his hair go straight up and is he bloody stupid? :D

You ever wonder how in the hell these Vampires do their hair? Or shave for that matter... Or how about Darla and Drusilla...who's doing their makeup? I'm befuddled

I'd like to see a Vampire that genuinely looks like they haven't been able to use a mirror in ages.

I have been known to think that on occasion. :D

You should totally do a series of vampire heads depicting bad hair and botched make-up jobs.

Angel with an f'd up haircut would be awesome. Although he did kind of sport a mullet at one point so maybe he's not all that unfamiliar with bad coifs.

Heads like that would definitely offer up some unique paintjobs, especially where the ladies are concerned.

Now you're talking.....ugly Vampires...Actually, whenever I think about the logistics of Vampires, my brains start to hurt....no heartbeat, so no circulatory system...where does that blood go when they drink it....what is the byproduct of drinking blood? Do I WANT to know? probably not....

Yay for Buffy nights! LOL I always made to sure to be home for Buffy. If my friends wanted to hang out on that night I had to decline. No one got in the way of Buffy! heheh

It's really cool that Netflix has all 7 seasons on watch instantly. :) No need to wait for the DVDs to come. lol

Yeah, Buffy and Angel nights were great. I really have a lot of fond memories of those days.
That's awesome that Netflix has them up! I'm hoping the series hits Blu-Ray, as Firefly looks amazing that way.

Thanks again for allt he kind comments,

Oh wow! I haven't seen Firefly on Blu-Ray yet, I bet that looks AWESOME! My boyfriend has been threatening to buy me a Blu-Ray player to install in my PC. I might just have to let him. lol Especially if Buffy gets released on Blu-Ray!

I think it's awesome you're a Joss fan!

By the way, please do keep us updated on where we can get the Spike figure once it's release! :hug: I'm looking forward to it!
