    Really fine figures, man. I like those a lot.

    You've also got half the main cast from "The Sons Of Katie Elder," too.

    Lol!! You are right! But if you look at photos of Angie at that time, she sure was pleasing to the eye...can you blame Duke?!

    Great bashes from one of my favorite movies....the only thing I would say against it is Dean had the newer "peacemaker" Colt in the movie....not the older model Colt you have in his hand here
    What would that look like if I was 12" tall?

    Nice figures, Geronimo! That's a good likeness of Dino, too. I would have to say the Duke hs is the DML "Kit Carson" (since I have a bunch myself). Thanks for posting!

    Hey Dioman, good catch! Thanks for that info on his colt. I'll have to keep an eye out for one. Any ideas on where to look?

    Thanks markh166! Actually, I never knew the origin of the Duke sculpt because I bought the head and body loose a while ago. Now you've got me curious so I'm gonna look him up...

    Well a couple of different places sell the Colt Peacemaker with a 4.5" barrel

    http://battlegeartoys.com/

    I prefer the stevo ones because I like the weight of the real metal but the BGT one might come faster
    What would that look like if I was 12" tall?

    Great figures, and the Duke HS looks spot-on. Dino's is pretty good, too.

    The tough part will probably be to find Peter Lawford - just to round out The Pack.

    You know, I kind of stumbled upon casting Dino's head sculpt I didn't really know how it would come out. I really was very pleasantly surprised at how much better a figure head looks when it's resin as opposed to hard plastic. It also gives you the opportunity to control the paint application which can make a big difference as well. Now I'm almost finished with painting the resin version of Duke which I plan to replace in the dio when finished...

    That does look nice, Geronimo. For my DML Duke heads, I've been adding some extra hair, both to match the character and to make it a bit bigger for the BGT hats. I drill some holes and then add Apoxie Sculpt.



    Thought my memory was so good remembering Lawford. Forgot all about Joey Bishop!

    Hi Mark,
    Thanks for your post! I'd love to see more pics if you have them...I haven't attempted to add hair...now that is a challenge!

    Feel free to join us on the Classic Actors and Tough Guys thread to post up...there is someone else on that thread who is also a Duke fan. Check it out:

    Here are some pics of Duke with his sculpt in resin with completed paint...I think it came out more realistic than its plastic counterpart shown in pictures above - I will let you be the judge...

    This first pic shows them side by side:
