    Default Sideshow 1/6 FARAMIR

    I finally decided to repaint the head sculpt of my old Sideshow Faramir figure. The original paint job was awful. The sculpt isn't that good either, but I tried to bring out David Wenham's features as best I could. I also added a green tint to the cape to make it more olive colored. Not bad for a eight year old figure that only cost $70 bucks in 2008. Maybe Asmus will remake it with a better David Wenham likeness.

    Great repaint. I sure hope Asmus makes a Faramir. I have always been a fan of Faramir and if I remember my Tolkien readings correctly, he said out of all the characters in Lord of the Rings that one was the most like himself.

    Good job. Unluckily this is by far the weakest sculpt of SSC LOTR line. I repainted mine but he's still displayed with the hood up.

    And it's a stronger (not necessarily better) character in the book...strong as Boromir should have been when close to The One. In the specials PJ said he went with weak Faramir because there were many characters proven resistant to the Ring's charm (Aragorn, Gandalf, Galadriel).

    I believe that's the case because Tolkien said he never planned on having that character be there. So Faramir being most like himself is probably a result of not planning the character out completely ahead of time. There are also probably some of his wife in Eowyn as well.

    To the topic: That's a really nice repaint! I think you did a great job bringing out the likeness. I really do hope Asmus does a new Faramir, as he's my favorite character.

    Here's an update to my customized SS Faramir. I dyed the the cape and the undershirt/skirt a darker forrest green to better match the screen costume. I think he looks much better now.

    Stephen nice effort! I've always thought the old Sideshow releases came with decent outfits and suffered primarily from poor older head sculpts.

    IMO - being someone who is LOL face-fussy and can't believe some of the stuff that's actually released *sigh* - IMO amazing job. Probably only so much you can do if underlying sculpt is off, but I'd display this with pride - great job!
