I think we've all seen a G.I.Joe character, figure or card art once and thought: hey, he looks just like......
That's exactly what this thread is about. I have several figures which remind me of celebrities. Some more than others, so admittedly, you might not always see what I see or agree with me, but that's actually what I'm curious about. I'd also like to know if you have some figures yourself that remind you of celebrities? Please share!

Click the pics for a better view!

Here goes, I'll start with probably one of the most common comparisons that are made:

Outback and Chuck Norris!

Next, a comparison that inspired me to create this topic:
Attachment:

Zap v2 and a combination of John Astin and Raul Julia. They both played Gomez Addams, I used the Zap v2 head to make my Gomez Addams custom.


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


This one has a little difference in the moustache, but I still think they look alike:

Jessy Ventura even has second Joe that kinda looks like him:

Another one:

Sci-Fi v2 did always remind me of Keanu Reeves!


-------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------


This one is also one of my earliest lookalike memories:

And yes, we know some of the sculpts are based on Hasbro people. That isn't what Tim is talking about. Think about this like you would if someone asked you for a actor likeness for a custom they want to make. What heads actually could pass for celebrities?

I'm going to go the obvious route and say PoC Lowlight could pass for Tom Berringer. The Club Footloose head could pass for Tom Selleck or Burt Reynolds.

Wish I had my Joe guides handy because there's one or even two that look exactly like Clark Gable.
One I believe is Keel Haul, but the other doesn't sport a hat and even had Gable's wavy locks.

Not much of a celebrity unless you follow MMA or BJJ but Eaglehawk Lift Ticket looks a lot like ultimate fighter Ryan Hall.

POC Lowlight - Tom Berenger: great find, now I can never watch "Sniper" again without thinking of Lowlight!
Club Footloose - Burt Reynolds/Tom Selleck: wow, this is very close. I cannot decide who is the best match.
25th Blowtorch - Roger Moore: I hate that Blowtorch head with the weird smile, but he'd make a nice James Bond indeed.
25th Bazooka - Burt Reynolds: not as close as the Club Footloose, but I can see the resemblance.
Keel Haul - Clark Gable: I didn't know Clark, but that is certainly a look-a-:like:
Psyche Out - Owen Wilson: you're right, he does look better as Owen Wilson. Nice!
Lift Ticket - Ryan Hall: Yes. Ryan should put on Lift Ticket's helmet, man those ears!

I like them all, great finds!
