Don't know the manufacturer as the figure came to me with only a couple painting guide photos. One-piece casting. Paint job is artist's oils over enamels.

Looks like some battery salesman, doesn't it?😉

Dunno, Gil. I received the figure without any packaging. He stands 4 1/4inches, if that helps.

Nicely done, but his hair looks too shiny.
