This was one of mine - also low-hanging fruit. I loved the ReAction concept on sight, so naturally while working I had to do some exclusives. A variant of The Invisible Man just made sense, and a low run (which I do not believe I am allowed to divulge) was run and released late last year. The question of how to do it was kicked around, but to do the whole figure in clear with no paint was my idea from the get-go. In the movie, the character covered himself because his skin, if exposed, was invisible - and he didn't want to freak everybody out at certain points.
Making him clear just made sense, because otherwise you would need a naked human body to make invisible and that's just silly. The idea of the figure is that it invokes the movie nicely, while not being a literal recreation of the unclothed, unseen monster of the movie. Thankfully, it turned out pretty well - you can see the guts of the figure through the chest with pegs and other elements. The lower legs plug in to the upper legs, and if you squint you can see some numbers sculpted inside the chest. The lack of paint and opacity doesn't hurt the figure's charm, as the light passes through various wrinkles and folds and his glasses to give him a sense of fullness for something that could just as easily have been a total drag.
For some reason the legs are parted slightly, but other than that it looks pretty good. The form of the Claude Rains costume comes through nicely and the limbs all look wonderful. Some of the chest detail is a little tougher to see, but it turned out fairly well. Obviously you don't need this version of this figure, but I felt like it should have existed and that's why it showed up at my place of employment as an exclusive. I got what I pictured in my head, and for that reason, I like it. I hope you like it too, and more importantly, I hope you paid full price for it so I can do more figures like this in the future. I should also note he has no sculpted peg holes in his feet, so what you see is pretty much what you get. The lack of holes do make the feet look better, and as unpainted figures go this is one of my recent favorites.
