I’m very happy that the official Kat action figure, which was based on her final scene in “Scar” and hit the shelves two years ago, turned out so exceptionally well. Still, I sometimes wish there were more Kat figures, modeled on other poses or scenes – such as the towel scene in “Final Cut” or one of her boxing moves in “Unfinished Business”.
That’s why I was so excited when I saw the custom-made, one-of-a-kind Kat action figure crafted by the very talented Sasha Powell (a.k.a. MsBigPileofDust):
Now doesn’t that look fantastic? “Remorseful Kat in sickbay” is actually one of my favorite Kat scenes. And oh, the curly hair! Sasha really did a wonderful job with this Stim Junkie. Here’s the description:
I used a Grindhouse Dakota figure with Lost Sun legs and a Kat head. I sculpted her hospital gown and curly hair.
I painted her to look more like Kat. She’s looking wan from her addiction. She has a syringe and a black stand with a peg to keep her steady.
Sasha sold the figure on eBay, and I’m hoping it’s in good hands. “Stim Junkie Kat” is not the only figure she made, of course. You can view pictures of dozens of amazing, custom-made, unique figures – based on characters from Battlestar Galactica and many other productions – on her website.
Some of the figures are currently for sale. Sasha also let me know that she takes commissions – so if you’d love to have a one-of-a-kind figure modeled on, say, “Captain Kat in Duty Blues”, this is your chance to make it happen.
