The Twilight Zone Henry Bemis 3 3/4-inch Action Figure
 
Wow! Boing Boing just hipped me to these marvelous Twilight Zone action figures by Bif Bang Pow! Apparently they have a new series of action figures they’re going to release this August and you can pre-order them now.

I feel a wee bit embarrassed I’ve never seen these before?! This is something I should’ve known about! Anyway, there are other amazing Twilight Zone action figures you can still get your hands on from an existing line. My choice selections are below.

Lord have mercy! These incredible 12” Blade Runner action figures are something else, aren’t they? Sculptor Scott Pettersen made these gorgeous pieces. Apparently each one takes take two to three months to make. I believe it, too! Just look at the detail in the clothes alone! My mind is simply blown!

“I work in wax when I sculpt and you can get a lot of detail in wax,” Pettersen says of the figures’ faces. “The finished heads are made out of resin — the kind I use is a clear, translucent color, so I cast it in a light color and then build onto that with different flesh tones. With all of them I use airbrush and there’s a lot of blending, a lot of thin, thin layers — I think on mass-produced figures all the paint is opaque and nothing is done with layers so it’s not as realistic.”

A big collection of Doctor Who action figures “sing” Lou Reed’s “Perfect Day.”

This version of Reed’s “Perfect Day” was originally done for a BBC charity promotion in 2008 which included a vast array of singers including “David Bowie, Laurie Anderson, Bono among many others.”

Unfortunately, the Eleventh Doctor, Amy Pond and Rory are not included in the video.
 

 
Thanks you, Edward Ludvigsen!

Good job, CautionLowSign! The only thing mini-Colbert seems to be missing are his wire frame glasses.
