I started Perry in an effort to bolster my Metropolis shelves. I had a good start on the body, but every attempt I made at the head resulted in failure. Thankfully, there’s a customizer in our ranks that is known for his quality head sculpts: Glassman!
The G-man and I got to discussing Dan Turpin and Perry White when we struck upon a unique partnership. I’d work up the bodies, he’d work up the heads and cast the parts, and I’d paint the final results.
Frankly, I got the better end of that deal. Look at that head sculpt! Glassman is a master of his craft! Without his contribution, this would be a mediocre sculpt of a guy in a vest, with an off-model head. Instead, I now have a Perry White that Mattel should be so lucky to produce!
Thank you Glassman! These projects have been tremendous fun to share with you. I look forward to many more!
Perry was made from a Ben 10 Max figure, with lots of additional sculpting and leg extensions.
Oh, and Glassman says he’ll offer castings if there’s interest. So if this appeals to you, let him know!
