Bigfoot Sighting

This Bigfoot action figure is from Kenner's Six Million Dollar Man toy line of the 1970s. He stands 14 1/2 inches tall, much larger than the other figures from the same line. I received this one as a gift when I was a young boy.

 

This image was heavily manipulated in Photoshop. I took the original photo of Bigfoot in my kitchen with a plain background. Then I cut out the character and superimposed him onto a picture of a meadow near my home. Finally, I used various filters, blurs, layer adjustments, and effects to give it some age.

 

I was inspired by 8 Skeins of Danger to create this image. His twelve-inch action figure photos are always so fun and creative.

    bulliver: I'm glad you found it amusing! Thanks!

    TCM Hitchhiker: Thank you so much!

    8 Skeins of Danger: Happy birthday! It's clear to anyone who looks at your photostream that you have a strange and wonderful rapport with the large size action figures.

    I do have more bionic goodness, and I'm sure it will be revealed in the future. ;-)

    Brilliant photo- looks really vintage. At least as convincing as the Patterson-Gimlin film!

    Ha, my Bigfoot is bigger than yours!

    Great processing! It looks like a long lost still frame from the old "In Search Of" tv series that was voiced-over by Leonard Nimoy.
