    Oh man, those are awesome. I love the Marvel Comics and Terminator stuff, the others are awesome also. (gotta love Jessica Rabbit) The costumes are great, and of course Valerie is lovely (some of those girls at the convention are good looking too. :D) However, my absolute favorite in this entire series is Capt. Jack Sparrow. I swear, it looks like Johnny Depp waked off the set and came into ComiCon. That’s amazing craftsmanship, it’s so lifelike. That’s definitely my favorite of today’s pics, though they’re all sweet. Thanks again for sharing. 😀😀😀

      Yeah that Sparrow was something else and it’s not that tall,,, 18 inches I would say!!! Captain America was awfully darned impressive too.

        Yeah, I noticed that CA had a lot of detail. I think it’s the closeness of the shot you got of Jack that really sold the reality factor. I’m sure they’re all amazing but that photo really showed just how amazing that particular one is. 😀

    Wowzers! I never cease to be amazed at the level of craftmanship people display. I’m curious what you mean by sculptures are grown. Oh – and the hidden Mickey Mouse – yeah, I just about spit out my water when I read that. Too funny!!

    Plus, another great picture of Valerie! Woo!

      HAAA! sorry about your water buddy,,,,
      the difference is some artist sculpt by hand with clay and then mold and cast their pieces, others sculpt in the computer or scan an existing object and then the parts are grown in a rapid process machine.

        We have a printer that does basically that at school…I have always in a way thought of it as cheating, but the results are AMAZING. The hand work will always be a step up to me but wouldn’t wanna miss some of the awesome grown stuff you show here.

        Great PICS my friend!

    Wow! Those models and figures are increadible. I agree with you, the Jack Sparrow one is unbelievable – life like. I have a soft spot in my heart for Buck Rogers, so I thought those retro rockets where pretty cool!

    Did I read your previous post correctly – you moved to Wyoming? I spent a few weeks there many years ago, in the Laramie area, and loved it. Big sky – geeat place to have a big telescope.

    Good luck with the move and wish you well with the new home.

    Takc care,

    I’m loving these scupted figures you’re showing us, John. So much detail.

    Have to admit though, I’m not a fan of the new Captain America costume.

        I’m much more of a purist on costumes myself, and the Cap movie costume is a little too visually busy for my taste, but I have to say, its a great flick. I was soooo worried somebody was going to try to make Cap into something he wasn’t, especially during the big one, but it does justice to the character and its an entertaining movie to boot. Right up there with the best Marvel movies.

        I did a review of it on my blog. I must admit I was a bit disappointed.

    I hadn’t realised until recently how much 3D scanning and printing is taking over. Clearly incredible results, as shown by the Captain Jack model, but a shame for all those talented sculptors who must be put out of work by it. At least if they switch to digital sculpting they’ll always be required for original creations that can’t be simply scanned from existing objects. 3D printing is a really amazing technology, though. The idea that you can scan in or digitally model an object, then send the data to someone on the other side of the planet and in a matter of minutes they can be holding a copy in their hands has a mind boggling array of applications.

    Anyway, great pics. It looks a lot less busy than last year. Maybe people are less able to afford to go? I don’t know who buys some of those giant models either. Personally I like my merchandise small and manageable, not standing six foot tall in the corner of the room aiming a light saber in my direction! Just imagine you get up in the night for a glass of water and forget for a second that Darth Maul is downstairs!🙂

    A variation on the sexy Soriama robot turns up in a first season episode of The Venture Bros. on Cartoon Network. There’s even a character in the episode named Professor Soriama. He had an unrequited crush on a girl in college, so he built those robots with her face. I believe they were Leslie-bots🙂
