New and Improved Sam Tyler by Girl-on-the-Moon New and Improved Sam Tyler by Girl-on-the-Moon
Woo! Another sculpture!
I actually did the newer Sam in November of last year, exactly a year (to the day) since my first version of Sam.
It really goes to show the difference a year makes, and the difference between painting a sculpture done in white Sculpey, and just making it out of coloured Sculpey.

New Sam was hours of work and only about 4 1/2 inches tall, made from the Sculpey that comes in little overpriced coloured bricks.

Why the BBC doesn't sell these as action figures is BEYOND ME. They'd sell like Welsh cakes!

It would probably break in the sending. Where do you live?

BC, Canada.
I'm just worried that if I make one for one person, I'll have to make one for everyone that asks. That, and I don't think I have the time to make one these days... Perhaps later and very secretively?

I might have time to do it on my next break. Which is like... Christmas. Er, yeah.
The more I think about it, the less I think this is going to work...

I cannot even express how much I love this :O Stupid BBC, I would buy one in an instant. There isn't really anything Life on Mars-y that you can buy.

Coloured Sculpey is the only way to go *nods*

Many felicitations on your grand achievement :clap: Lovely lovely lovely!
*sigh* Yes, I wish they did sell them, I can't imagine why they wouldn't. All I know is that the minute they go on the market (if ever) I will be first in line :D Perhaps you would like to make a limited stock and sell them at a dear price? I guarantee millions :XD:!

Wow, the likeness is oddly surprising. I loved life on mars! I went to the filming of the second series one day because I knew the camera man. Had a lovely chat with John Simm himself!

My name is Sam Tyler. I had an accident and woke up less than half a foot tall. Am I mad, in a coma, or made of clay?
