    Don Hector Salamanca from Breaking Bad and the Prequel to Breaking Bad - You Better call Saul

    Cobbled together from WikiPedia
    Hector Salamanca (played by Mark Margolis) is the elderly don of the Salamanca drug organization and an associate of cartel boss Don Eladio. He is the uncle of twins Leonel and Marco Salamanca (the Cousins), Tuco Salamanca, and Lalo Salamanca, and raised Tuco as a son. He taught his nephews that family is everything and lives by the creed himself. Though brutal, Hector is very loyal. He spent 17 years in San Quentin State Prison but never revealed any information to the authorities. Nacho attempts to induce a heart attack by switching out Hector's heart medication in capsules for crushed ibuprofen. Hector has a stroke while meeting with Gus and Juan Bolsa, but Gus saves him with CPR. Hector is comatose and Gus arranges for a specialist from Johns Hopkins to oversee his care. Over the next few months, her therapy restores Hector's mental faculties, but he is unable to speak and is immobile except for his right index finger. Gus has the specialist discontinue treatment, effectively trapping Hector's sound mind in his unhealed body. Hector is reliant on a wheelchair for the rest of his life.

    This bust from Scale Collectables comes in 4 pieces (2 are duplicated as they are quite fragile), The head and Torso and the oxygen tubes which keep hector alive. The sculpting and printing is first rate and Sid has captured Hectors twisted demure to a T, you can almost see him snivelling with hate.

    The Head has been cast without the tubes in place, which makes life a lot easier for the painter, and they attach without any problems. Don Hector's expression is perfect and captures him so well.







    The Torso, is another nice casting.


    Breathing tubes come as two separated pieces and attach to Hectors Nostrils and into grooves on each side of his head, the connecting 'Y' piece connect behind his ears.


    All Together


    Again another highly recommended piece by Markuk
