Character  Biff Tannen
A look at the 1955 Biff Tannen heads for NECA's upcoming "Back To The Future" line of 7" action figures. A real thrill to work on these, as I've wanted to see these characters as toys for most of my life.

These are the 2-up wax originals with the resin prototypes at the bottom.

Love the hair and teeth.

Thanks so much! Biff was really tough....It's hard to capture the comic quality to his intimidating presence. I really want to sculpt him in the various old-age make-ups from the movies. :D Hopefully the BTTF toys will sell well enough to warrant it.

Nice! I knew exactly who it was before I even saw the title!

That's great to hear, thanks!

Oh these are just amazing again, i love his more enraged expression, you did so well with the slight asymmetry

Thanks so much! I've had a ball on the BTTF stuff....Likenesses never get boring, it's always weird how persistently challenging they are.... I'm with you, I like the enraged Biff expression best. That was a fun one!

Thanks! I love seeing NECA do this line of toys, as it's something I've wanted for a long time. Grateful to be part of it.

They just need more licenses, but your art is awesome
TrevorGrove's avatar

It's shocking to me how many licenses they do get...Way more than I was ever used to getting to work on in my early days as a sculptor...It's helped make my day-job a lot more fun, never knowing what character I may get to work on next. :)

(Using the phone app) when the sculpt is a human face, I try to guess who the character is before scrolling down to see the title...it’s a testament to your skill that I’m usually right!
TrevorGrove's avatar

That's really great to hear. Thanks! I'm glad the characters are recognizable, it's always the goal, but it's a very subjective thing.

Objectively, it looks like the actor, but people perceive differently, that’s for sure.
