He certainly did a great job of copying your Poyner figure.
So which did you do Wanlu, send lots of pictures or the head?
I've often thought I'd like a clone of my main figure with a few more animations, but I really don't want to ship the head anywhere.

Never mind about the kidney thing. I was only gonna do it for the tee-shirt. Once that was no longer in the deal, I lost interest. Smile

He's here Smile

First things first... I am very happy with the figure. Thanks to Tim Cowles and Kem Poyner.

Just a few things I regret to report...he suffered a small paint scratch on his cheek...and oh yes, the hair is brown. I asked for black hair.

Controls are very quiet and smooth except when eyebrows are raised, just a little clicking sound made by the spring on the lever. No big deal! Smile I just need to study the new set of controls...

Let me buy him a new wig...and then he's our Nicolo... Smile

Again...thanks to Tim Cowles and Kem Poyner Smile

Oh, so he's arrived - cool!
I thought Tim had a new wig coming for the figure.

That's what he said...but NO WORRIES, it's just a small thing. He did tell me a few minutes ago via email that he tried to match the wig. He also gave me $50 to buy a new matching wig... Smile

COOL! Smile

Re changing the color of an existing wig: I wouldn't try that. You can change the color of a human hair wig because it will absorb the color...but most wigs these days are plastic of one kind or another and have no pores or inner core and will only take the color as a layer that will not stick permanently.
Wanted to say that before you tried it!

I just went to the Poyner site and popped up the "Bobby" picture and compared it side-by-side with your new figure, Wanlu. It's a good likeness copy...but I think it actually improves on the physiognomy as well...The head seems a bit wider. The upper lip is definitely wider. The ear pitch is slightly different, and the nose is broader. The custom figure looks "wiser." Excellent job! You must be thrilled!

I am... Smile

I think making an exact copy is very difficult. I have two Bobby figures both made by Kem Poyner and they don't look exactly the same.

I wonder what A Selberg version will look like? Smile

Oh by the way... I plan to get a new black wig for the figure...

Too late, I think you already gave it away (and that evil smiley doesn't help). Smile

I just re-read what I wrote. I did NOT mean to suggest the original Poyner wasn't good. I just noticed that there's a slyness to the copy. Just sayin'.
