I always theorized that the material that inspired the look of the resurgence wave of Star Wars figures was the art of Ron Lim, but haven't mentioned it to anyone until today (never knew anyone who cared for toys before, never participated in a toy/Star Wars forum until now). Ron Lim's a comic book artist who's done work on Silver Surfer, the Fantastic Four, and others, and I've always felt that there was a strong resemblance between the '95 figures and the covers he did for some Star Wars comics around that time (he may have done the interior pencils too, I don't know).
So what do you guys think? Ever heard about this before? Is it common knowledge and should I turn red and shrivel up right about now?
