Ugnaught Unpainted Hardcopy Head
The image shown above is definitely not intended to "show Mommy how the little piggies eat", although the Ugnaught head certainly does look like it's been bobbing through slop based on the coloration. The head maintains this appearance because it's cast in a tan colored urethane. It is categorized as an unpainted hardcopy. It's fairly clear this was an extra unused example due to the void presence in the chin area. Air bubbles trapped within the silicone mold often resulted in voids of this nature, thus rendering the cast part unusable. As such, the head was unfit for use as a tooling master or painted sample. Regardless, it's a tremendously cool hardcopy item. Hopefully the head will one day be reunited with the unpainted hardcopy torso seen here.
