Star Trek comnined faces. Original actors merged with new ones

I apologize if someone has already posted this link.

It is a set of images of the TOS characters, with the original actors merged with the new movie actors. I thought it was sort of cool.

Re: Star Trek comnined faces. Original actors merged with new ones

I was wondering when someone was gonna mention this on TrekBBS. Was about to do it myself - thanks, Argus.

WOW. I hope whoever does the makeup/hair on ST XIII takes note of these merged pics. A little fine-tuning on our new cast, and everything old truly will be new again. (One spray-on tan, and the jig would have been up - nobody would've doubted who Cumberbatch was playing!)

I loved one Facebook reaction I read to the Pine/Shatner hybrid: "That thud you hear is the sound of gravity-defying space clothing all over the Alpha Quadrant falling to the ground for Recombinant Kirk."

Re: Star Trek comnined faces. Original actors merged with new ones

That is most awesome.
Just wish they'd done something about the layering effect on everything but the face...

Not sure what you could do with that, though.

Re: Star Trek comnined faces. Original actors merged with new ones

Wow! those are incredible. Two thoughts:

1. If they need a new McCoy, Aaron Douglas would be almost in the middle between Kelley and Urban.
2. Seldana really doesn't look like Nichols. It seems like they had to crunch in Nichols face in order to get them to fit over Seldana's.

Re: Star Trek comnined faces. Original actors merged with new ones

I liked the combo-Kirk much better. I wish Pine would style his hair more like Kirk's style in TOS.

I couldn't tell much difference in the combo-Spock. Quinto looks enough like young Spock as it is.

Gary Sinise should have been McCoy.

I like seeing things like this. Kirk, Spock, and Sulu mix well.

I think that morphing the two faces together is a bit like cheating, but I always held that the casting choice was indeed excellent.

When you morph their features, of course they match.
