Almost finished.Took this shot to look at the hair length.The original was shorter but I’m kind of liking it like this.Still needs a bit of trimming , dressing and paint.

Just pulled this guy out of the original mold made in 1973 as marked on the back, see insert,I made a small production run of this guy in ’73 then later let George use him in the original Star Wars. Now I’m going to paint and hair him up.

Amazing what 40 plus years can do to a mask. On the left my original devil guy mask the one used in Star Wars, now in the collection of Bob Burns.On the right the new casting from the original mold.

Got some paint on my new latex casting from my original mold of this devil guy which I made before Star Wars as a concept for an unmade Landis movie. I let George use it in Star Wars thinking it would be a background alien .Took a couple of photos to see how it looked and put my eyes in with PhotoShop.
