Sheriff Slim Pickens...
« on: July 26, 2019, 10:23:23 AM »
I’ve been after this figure for a long time now. I wanted him to do my little tribute to that great Old West character actor Slim Pickens. One of my all time favourite scenes from a Western is Slim, gut shot and dying, on the riverbank in Sam Peckinpah’s ‘Pat Garrett and Billy the Kid’.

So here’s Sheriff Slim Pickens, still more than a match for any lickered up Cowpoke on a Saturday night, and with enough grit to walk the walk with a mean eyed gunslinger…

Blazing Saddles, Dr. Strangelove, yeah, ol' Slim was one of the greats.
You'll shoot your eye out, kid!
