Scott Pettersen is one of those fans who wanted Blade Runner figures for years and finally just developed the skill set to make them for himself. “I always liked the human form,” he says. “When I was a kid I remember getting a model car and not being that excited by the model car but by the figure inside of it. And I remember always wanting the 12″ G.I. Joes when I was a little kid and by the time I was big enough they didn’t make that size anymore. Years later, I outgrew toys but I still liked them aesthetically, and Sideshow Collectibles started making their 12″ figures and they did a Blackbeard figure I thought was pretty cool. One of my favorite movies was The Good, the Bad and the Ugly and I thought it would be cool if there was a little figure of Clint Eastwood, so that was the first one I did.”
