    Been a long while since I posted here last. Things have been mad round here for the last year or so, but I am getting back in the saddle.
    A while back now I decided I wanted to do my version of Vac-Man and possibly some of the good guys from said toy line, and with that I got started.

    Initial concept head sketch:

    Sculpting began:

    On to the body and sketching as I tinkered:

    Then the sculpt was ready to go a while later:

    And finally on to the cast:

    Cast in a vibrant orange and painted in a similar scheme as the original toy, this tribute figure will be released in a limited run in this colorway. I had a blast painting this guy up, I am as of yet unsure how many will be done in this scheme. Painted this fellow up with acrylics and chalks.

    Honestly I spent a long time just trying to decide whether or not to cast him at all, this weekend I went for it. Vac-Man was one of my favorites, and that holds true today.
    Will be playing with colors and generally getting a handle on all that soon.

    For those unfamiliar with Vac-Man, the figure came with a "vacuum pump" with which you sucked the air out of the body, and the material inside gave him a horrid bumpy/bubbly skin texture, which also allowed for stretching and poses that held until you pressed the switch to refill him with air.

    Hope you folks dig it.

    I like this character, and the painted version looks good.
    The red vinyl works well, but the unpainted orange thread a little close to Fantastic Four's 'The Thing'... :)

    ^^ I can see that.

    Cool tribute idea. Ha, makes me want to find an old Vac-Man. :D

    The sculp looks great! And good call on making the painted ones available. I'd rather have a painted one myself. They just give off an even stronger Vac-Man look.
