Hoth Stormtrooper 4-up Hardcopy Paint Master (668-004)
This 4-up represents one of the five poses of the Hoth Stirmtrooper included in the Hoth Generator Attack playset. The micro figures were each sculpted at a 4:1 ratio, which makes prototypes for them large in size and very nice for display purposes. The prototype shown above is cast in a green urethane, referred to as dynacast, and is entirely hanpainted, placing it in the catagory of paintmaster. This 4-up was created using a silicone mold made directly from the original wax sculpt. This piece nicely compliments the unpainted 4-up seen here.

This paint master surfaced from a find which was brokered by The Earth a few years ago. It included an impressive number of Micro Collection and 3 3/4" action figure hardcopies.
