I’m willing to bet most Poesters can name the Four Horsemen, and probably quite a few recognize names like Kyle Windrix and Jason Frailey. But there are also sculptors like Scott Hensey, whose work you almost certainly owned as a kid. Hensey was responsible for many of the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles figures in the ’80s and ’90s, as well as Playmates’ Star Trek figures and even Playing Mantis’s Rudolph the Red-Nosed Reindeer line.
The above is a very cool video interview with Hensey by Make Magazine, part of their “new series about the people who bring fantasy to life. We will spotlight miniature-making, sculpting, molding, figure-modding, latex mask-making, and much more with tutorials, interviews, reviews, and good stories.” You can follow the series at www.makezine.com/go/believe
More importantly, be sure to visit Hensey’s website, where you can see just how much of your childhood came from his tools and imagination.
