Only took what, 17 years?
Ha!! I am so pleased with myself. My dollhouse has needed Supernatural action figures for so long! And inexplicably, no-one has ever made one-twelve scale figures of the Winchester brothers.
The heads came from ebay, cast in grey resin.
The sculpts are phenomenally, outrageously good. They look like they are produced from digital scans of the actor’s heads – yet how do these bootleg ebay sellers get ahold of the files?
Anyway, the sculpts are so good they practically paint themselves.
Except not really, and painting tiny things is hard, but I’m getting better at it. I don’t ever plan to try to do it regularly; I leave that to the real customizers. But this was an extreme situation. Why has no one ever made Winchester Brothers actions figures in six-inch scale?
Here’s the recipe: Sam and Dean Winchester Custom action figures in 6″ scale.
Heads from ebay, Sam head modified with Apoxie Sculpt to add more hair volume at back of skull. (his head was a little small for the body otherwise)
Sam body: Robert Pattinson’s character from the Twilight movies, by NECA, first movie I think. I carved out his neck and re-sculpted it and repainted to fit the Sam head better.
Dean body: Xander figure from the last round of Buffy figures from Diamond Select, in 2006. His hands were tiny, so I pulled them off and replaced them with the hands of a spare Wes from the last series of Angel figures. I also pulled the legs off the figure (they kept falling off anyway) and sculpted the joins where they met the hips to give the figure a little more height and more of a Dean stance.

Eventually I’ll put the Sam and Dean figures in the library with the Buffy figures and Blade!
OMG I’m so happy to have these figures done!
