I was going to say it's Hero Heads, but a quick jog through their ordering .PDF shut that down. Sorry man.

I just checked out their selection. The number of recasts is unbelievable. I hope someone nails him for intellectual property violations (and in a way I kind of don't. Some of those heads are hard to come by). It's not even like any of them are hard to recognize as DML, SST, etc.

Judging by the paint jobs on some of the photos, he doesn't have much in the way of artistic talent!

Yea, his recasts are terrible! I ordered a Robert Patrick head and had to chuck it. It was absolutely horrible. So many air holes it wasn't worth fixing

If you keyword diver4 into the Search engine, it has some pretty enlightening info on him, as well as interesting discussion on purchasing recasts.

So I take it it's not okay to order from this guy? Because he has a Bill Murray sculpt and a Dan Aykroyd. 2 out of three of the Ghostbusters, also my favorites, though Egon really ties with Stantz. If anyone can tell me this guy is okay to buy from I might just get these sculpts, if not, I'll decide to go to various ventures then.

Oddly enough if accessories are recast everyones cool with it, but with HS its pretty touchy on the moral side of things.

Looking at the posts above, you will probably get what you paid for, which may not be what you wanted in the end.

I'd save your money and track down the source, at least they may offer a better casting and you'd be encouraging their talents.

OOOOOOH!!!!! :jawdrop

Want! Where do I find this person? Sculpts of those four are high on my list. That's actually why I haven't done a single custom since Indiana Jones in 2005. But I also want to do a Lone Ranger custom, but the problem with that is the dang western clothing and the weapons, now if anybody can point me in the proper direction of getting some western gear I'd be much obliged.

I've bought from Diver4 (Dale)before. I realize he's recasting the world and I would'nt buy a Frontline sculpt from him. Lonnie's are better cast and better price. However I did buy the Eastwood sculpt in question. It is exactly as picured. It's slight bit characaturish but I think it captures Dirty Harry better than my HH version. I also bought a Richard Burton. The original Burton sculpt was from Bill Kern (Poppo Toys). My Poppo toys Burton met with a terrible acetone accident and I had been unable to find Poppo on the web or otherwise communicate with Bill Kern. It was a miracle to see it on Ebay offered by Diver4. It is a fine cast also. (I intend him for a Where Eagles Dare bash). On the other hand I bought a Napoleon Solo (Robert Vaughn) gilbert recast from him that had a thin neck which listed a little too much to the right. When I e-mailed and complained a little he ignored my e-mail.
