Yeah, it started life as a shrink of the 9" Playmates Trelane head. It's the closest I usually come to "sculpting". Added the beard, eyebrows and did the hair. Since the same actor played both characters I thought I could get away with it.

You need to send these pics to Doc Mego. Maybe it will get some wheels turning.

Oh, trust me, you got away with it alright. Great job on the sculpt :yes:

Very nice work. I especially like the Sulu, Chekov and Klingon. Believe it or don't before I seen this thread I had just sent you a PM on a similar note.

I already commented Dave Mc on the Sulu, Chekov and Klingon figures. Sorry Dave only one nice compliment per response. :grin:

Meule, awesome job on the screen correct Mugato. I am also liking the Yeoman Rand by Mefiboschet. Then again I have always been a bit of a fool for blondes. :smiley1: Seriously though, nice work on the customs guys. I would definitely like to see them ALL produced by EMCE some day. Hopefully some day S:smile::smile:N!!

I'm not a huge OST Trek fan.

Harry Mudd is the "Tribble guy" is he not?

To me, after Sulu/Chekov/Chapel/Rand
(and with his resurgance in the movie series) Kahn---
I think Mudd is the coolest choice for an additional figure.

Would he sell well?

I don't know.

But he's my favorite non-original line figure choice
outside of the ones I mentioned above---
---possibly even higher up, right below Sulu/Chekov

I always liked that TRIBBLE episode a lot---to me its the most memorable ST episode
---and I'm sure I'm not alone

Be sure to include a few Tribble acessories with Mudd if you make him though!

:no: You're confusing him with Cyrano Jones.
Mudd was in two episodes, using the alias Leo Walsh in one of them. He wasn't really a bad guy, more of a nuisance to Kirk and the Enterprise with his little schemes. As Leo Walsh he was transporting mail-order brides and in the other episode he was ruler of a planet full of female androids
