What's the total cost for this project, darth?

I can't quite put my finger on it, but likeness isn't really there, just by a bit though. Maybe it's the angle or something. Awesome nonetheless!

Cost? Too much to add up.

Yeah, 1:1 busts are very subjective. We all know these character's faces SOOO well. But for my money Bobby's bust is the best Ledger Joker in the world.

Thanks for the nice words guys!

I have seen this and other pieces up close and personal-- no offense but Madame Tussauds is not even in the same ball game with the work that Bobby does--
The likeness is so close to exact that you could not tell the difference if you put the real Heath and this side by side. I have seen Bobby tear apart a piece and start over simply because he was not happy with the results, even though I thought it was perfect. Bobby is top of this game in my book

Respect your opinion but I have to differ. That is so real, it's actually creepy. I'm not a big fan of the character regardless of actor (either Nicholson or Ledger) but I have to give props to Bobby C, this is just stupidly good.

I have lifesize busts that scares little kids. This? It would scare me . . .

Totally agree. Bobby is the man to go to for all things Ledger.

Congrats, you rich lucky sonofagun! You make many of us green and purple with envy.

And thanks for sharing your pics, darth!

Could you talk a bit of how exactly this came together? Meaning, you had Bob make a silicone 1:1 bust that had a hollow neck, and then you placed the bust on the mannequin?

How did you find clothes that you felt would be a good fit? Was it trial and error?
