NECA Re-Animator by TrevorGrove NECA Re-Animator by TrevorGrove
These were fun, TINY little heads to work on with NECA. They're making some cool retro-style clothed figures of Herbert West and Dr. Hill's noggin from the cult favorite "Re-Animator". You can check out the final toys here: necaonline.com/2018/02/re-anim…

Sculpted in hard wax, as usual. The group shot are resin castings, and the glasses are a clear urethane also.

Thank you, very much! He's fun and difficult to sculpt, I think part of my trouble was the tiny size, but I really struggled to capture his unique quality.

Thank you! I sculpted these in TMS wax. It's a great hard blend for when you need sharp detail. studiorgc.yolasite.com/wax.php
I also sculpt in castilene, mostly for bodies, but I'm starting to really like it for heads too. It's softer, but still plenty hard for detail. In some ways the softer qualities can be beneficial.
Hope that helps!

Haha! Yeah, the glasses drive me crazy. I've made about 4 characters with glasses in the last year, and each time it's more challenging than the last. :)

Thanks a lot, glad you like them!

i can only imagine how hard it is to do these glasses,
how are they made? they look incredible - the distortion
is spot on! :D and you're welcome!

Thanks! I sculpt them in wax with some wire and then make a mold. Often times it's just a mess getting resin into the mold and getting enough air-pressure in to make sure the castings are bubble free. If you can get that far, the challenge then is sanding and buffing something so small so that it's clear. Oddly, it works best with these tiny heads...If things are too thick you get a foggy transparency.

woha, really incredible stuff and thanks for the insights!
a workmate of mine also does some 3d printing and through
him i know a bit how hard it is to do good castings... but these
glasses and the overall detail and likeness all the time -
man, i bow in front of you! :)

Haha!Thanks again, very much. Yeah, moldmaking and casting is a beast, sometimes. Those guys don't get enough respect, in my opinion. I only do it when I have to, and it often gives me trouble.

I've been waiting for someone to make something like this FOREVER. I know what my next purchase will be.

That's awesome to hear! I hope they're successful for NECA so that they do some others. I know it's a license people have wanted since I was just a fan of toys.

You have no idea - I've been wanting A Re-Animator toy since about 1989!

Wow!! Now that's a long wait! :D I wonder why it was such a difficult license...I know SOTA tried to do it once long ago...

Clearly you have access to a shrink ray.

Haha! If I ever have to sculpt smaller than this, I'll definitely need one to avoid losing my vision...oof.
