-while it's discussed to be Blondie from "The Good, The Bad, and the Ugly", there are a couple of things which I see that might be improved upon, perhaps the owner wanted it this way? other that that I wouldn't want to stare this man down in a three way dual!

No beard.  Not much shaving in those days except for city dudes.

The b/w image I believe is the initial sculpt before the silicone mold was poured, thus no beard, however look at the hat leather band on the b/w vs the finished bust. The tooling is more correct on the b/w shot, also Blondie had an octagonal barrel on his Colt Navy 1851. And I do see what appears to be some brown on the poncho, hopefully the topside is the faded dirty brownish color and while flipped over his shoulder it shows it's original green hue.

OK, I get it.  B&W was early rendition.  But I agree: color photo one "resembles" him, but really not so authentic.
