"The X-files" was a multi-award winning (Peabody, Golden Globe and Emmy Award) science fiction series created by Chris Carter and aired from 1993 till 2002. It originally starred David Duchovny as FBI agent Fox Mulder, a "believer" in the existence of aliens and the paranormal after his sister Samantha was mysteriously abducted from the Mulder residence when Fox Mulder was only 12 years old. His partner, FBI agent Dana Scully (played by Gillian Anderson) is a skeptic and was assigned to him in order to debunk and control Mulder's unorthodox working methods. By its final airing, "The X-Files" had become the longest-running science fiction series ever on US broadcast television. TV Guide called The X-Files the second greatest cult television show.
The show was a hit for the Fox network, and its characters and slogans ("The Truth Is Out There", "Trust No One", "I Want to Believe") became pop culture touchstones in the 1990s. Seen as a defining series of its era, "The X-Files" tapped into public mistrust of governments and large institutions, and embraced conspiracy theories and spirituality, as it centered on efforts to uncover the existence of extraterrestrial life.
In 2004, Sideshow released its 1st X-Files Special Agent Fox Mulder 12-inch figure with supposedly detailed likeness to David Duchovny who played Fox Mulder on Chris Carter's X-Files.
Accessories included a "I want to believe" poster which Fox Mulder puts up on his office wall, a cell phone and an alien ice pick.
Here's Sideshow's Fox Mulder head sculpt wearing some clothes I just put together coz I didn't want him to appear naked.
And here's my version of Fox Mulder (David Duchovny) posing with his impersonator or imposter which is Sideshow's version.
Other accessories that came with Sideshow's 12-inch X-Files Fox Mulder (other than his suit) included a flashlight, Smith & Wesson pistol with removable magazine and his FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) Badge.
IMHO This head sculpt looks more like David Duchovny who played Fox Mulder and it was from Dragon's Kriegsmarine Warrant Officer "Georg" released in 2002. So I just switch the body because I also don't like Sideshow's sculpted hands.
The picture of Sideshow's Fox Mulder's suit on the back of the box doesn't look as green as the actual product. The color is really unique as I don't recall Mulder wearing a green suit. Maybe Mulder also believes in Leprechauns, the small mischievous sprites in Irish folklore - ha! ha!
Fox Mulder with flashlight and pistol. Don't think they had SOCOM pistols with attached tactical lights back then.
The FBI usually issues either a Glock 22 or a Glock 23 to all Special Agents on graduation, based on their individual preferences. They also issue a smaller Glock 26 (subcompact 9mm) as a back up. More recently, seeing the shortfalls of the 9mm round's effectiveness, US government agencies have been adopting the Sig Sauer P226, firing the .40 Smith & Wesson round. In this case, Fox Mulder is armed with the Smith & Wesson pistol with removable magazine.
