    Here are a couple of shots I took of Paul Forest, a startling look alike for Leonard Nimoy's Spock character. He stands 6'8" tall and is easy to find in a crowd as he stands at least a head above everyone else. I took the pics I took and put him in a Star Trek background. Standing beside him really does leave one speechless. He does this professionally now and goes by the name Spock Vegas.

    Great pics! I have seen him at a few cons now, and your right...he is hard to miss.

    Creepy. He does look like Leonard Nimoy. Cool to know that you not only look like him, but actually can make a career out of it.

    I see a guy who wears a well made costume and perfect hair and ears and I'd an excellent replication, but I don't think the face looks like a dead ringer Nimoy. Excellent work on everything though, no doubt.

    Not so much as looking exactly like Nimoy, but if he told me Leonard was his older brother, I wouldnt argue with that. As Nimoy had the presence of being someone other than human, this guy gives the same sense. He is, to me, a Vulcan. When you see him in person you will know what I mean. Hopefully he will be at Fan Expo again in the fall at Metro Trade Centre in Toronto. Im looking forward to more pics to play with like the ones I posted here.

    Looks like he could be Spocks blood relative.

    Definately needs some double sided tape to pin his ears back like Nimoy did

    Excellent gear and it looks like he has a great commitment to the Spock character. However, young Nimoy was nowhere near that gaunt. This guy would look great as an older Spock.

    Perhaps something in red?

    Guy has done the movie era Spock bit (see below), but to me, he looks more like Iggy Pop.

    I'm sorry, but someone needs to give the guy a sandwich.

    Late movies Spock. Not so much early TV one.

    I agree. The red uniform is far more fitting. I'm sure Nimoy would be proud.
