If I made a top ten list of my personal favorite figure reconstructions, this fellow would make my list. He turned out better than I hoped and works very well, but the part I perhaps like best is the fact that he was literally saved from the trash dumpster. It's not the first time I've been able to rescue a figure that was in dire straights, and hopefully won't be the last. But for a figure maker, it is especially gratifying. The icing on the cake will be to see it being put to use in the manner in which he was intended. He's definitely one-of-a-kind, and while he may never smile himself, his presence will always cause others to smile and it doesn't get much better than that.
