Just realized I never got around to posting this one...

Probably the most obscure mask I've done, but a really fun one for me. The original was an early Rick Baker design that was thrown in the background of the cantina scene. I've been told it was an interpretation of Frankenstein (which would explain the metal bits on his head). Not sure why, but I always dug this guy. :D

I've listed one in the JY and will likely not do many more. PM if interested.

Some shots of the original in context...


Cool pic of the mask being used as a Frankenstein...

Tom, that is sweet. I can't say I remember the guy, but what a cool face he has.

You did an amazing job, as usual. :thumbsup Love the veins...they look so frakkin' real, I don't know how you do it.

Looks great. Please tell me you have a room with a wetbar decorated like the cantina or is that the ultimate goal?

Awesome.. I can't get enough of your Cantina sculpts...I especially love the rarer characters who I never thought would be recreated. Dunno how you get hold of some of the reference pics.

At the Star Wars, Star Wars Cantina The weirdest creatures you've ever seena.

He looks great. Keep up the good work and thanks for showing.

Amazing. How do you do them so fast???

I always thought this guy just had a skull face... learn something new everyday.

I'd love to see (forget his name) the dude who was just a hand puppet...

Dice Ibegon was the "name" eventually given to the handpuppet. Though during filming it probably was referred to by a far more practical name like hand-puppet alien.

Great, great work.

When I saw this character for the first time in 1977, I thought it was a skeleton....it must have been all the shadows. :p

Very cool mask--looks real.

I think it was a Frankenstein mask to begin with. Dick Smith's "DIY Monster Make-up Handbook" has an advanced make-up for Franky (using gelatin) that's a dead ringer for that--not surprising since Rick Baker did them and is a friend of Smith.
