Here's another villain done in my 1966 Batman project: Michael Rennie as Sandman.
Georg shrunk the head for me and also had to remove a beard and do some work on the hair I believe. He did a great job, as always. Sandman comes with a handmade fur coat that I had to paint since I couldn't find the fabric in the right color and since this synthetic hairs can't be dyed. The box of course is by Anthony

Actually, it's not Count Dooku, it's Michael Rennie himself. Here's how he looked in Lost in Space. The head was from a 9" action figure with that beard

Wow, even I had kind of forgotten him, but a great version of him nontheless. I was expecting to see Flint Marko or Wes Dodds here, but I was pleasantly surprised!

How many down and how many left to go?

29 done and 3 others done that I still need to unveil, but I'm waiting on the boxes.
8 in the making and then still 8 to go. And that's not counting henchmen :rolleyes:
