Is the HeadPlay Johnny a good representation of Johnny Depp as "Public Enemies" John Dillinger?

Since Johnny Depp as John Dillinger has come up recently (see earlier post HERE), let's take a look at another 1/6 scale head sculpt of Depp as Dillinger that was done by HeadPlay and released some time ago. HeadPlay released a bunch of 1/6 scale head sculpts a while back (see my posts HERE, HERE and HERE) but they have gone all quiet since. I picked up a few of their head sculpts and this was one of them. This is the HeadPlay Johnny version and he does bear a resemblance to Johnny Depp as he is seen in "Public Enemies", a film based on the exploits of John Dillinger, a 1930s bank robber.

This is the HeadPlay 1/6 scale Johnny head sculpt with the complete outfit from Heroic's 12-inch Bank Robber that was released in 2010 (see the full review HERE). I also switched the bodies because the body Heroic used for their Bank robber figure was too bulky and had a large chest and wider shoulders which wouldn't fit this HeadPlay head sculpt. Scroll down to see the rest of the pictures :)

I'm actually quite pleased with how this turned out. The Heroic head sculpt was not very well done at all and I had seen the HeadPlay Johnny head so it was just a matter of switching out the heads and bodies. The body has to match the head and HeadPlay's heads tend to be slightly smaller than the other manufacturer's so mixing and matching is important to get the look right.

If you were to open the page / post on Heroic's 1/6 scale Bank Robber REVIEW and compare them side by side, you can see that this new Johnny Depp John Dillinger Bank Robber 12-inch action figure is slimmer than the bulkier Heroic version.

Scroll down to see the rest of the pictures with close-up shots / images of the HeadPlay Johnny head sculpt. I do see the likeness to Johnny Depp as "Public Enemies" John Dillinger
