Darkness

​Sculpted in 1990 for Classic Plastic as their premier entry into the Garage Kit hobby. Officially licensed. Witness the embodiment of pure evil as portrayed by actor Tim Curry in Ridley Scott’s fantasy epic Legend.

His being a strikingly designed character on the screen made for an equally terrific subject as a model kit so I wanted to present him in a pose that would capture the essence of all his despicable existence.

Though a fairly simple presentation, his holding up the unicorn’s horn as a trophy told the tale quite well. The majority of the sculpture was done in Super Sculpey with horns and other details done with Atlas Epoxy-bond Putty.

Most of the jewels adorning his clothing were actual Austrian crystals that I positioned where my reference photos indicated.

This is the kit that got me into garage kits.  I stumbled across it in a hobby shop in Philadelphia.  It was my first resin purchase.  I love it to this day.

Thank you Jim, its nice to know this kit means that much to you. I know what thats like when a favorite model kit becomes a treasured memory. For me it was the Aurora Frankenstein back in the early 60’s, which by the way I also stumbled across in a Philadelphia hobby shop on Frankford Avenue. Thats the very first model that started me on a lifetime of figure kit modeling and I still have that original kit in my collection.

This is by far one of my favorite creations on the screen, as a make up and as a cast character (Tim Curry is so in league with this part).  I love this sculpt and hope I can get one of my very own.  The likeness and the essence of the demon is truly captured in the pose and expression on this demons face.  And I agree, the horn of the Unicorn tells the terrible tale, not a word be necessary.
