Hola! Rewatching "It's a Wonderful Life" makes me wish I had a 25mm mini for Mr. Potter (Lionel Barrymore) to play the part of the villain in many a Pulp or RPG game. Anyone know if there's anything like this available? Even for a conversion? Needs to be overweight and in a wheelchair or sitting in a chair.

I can easily drum up a Fiendish Semi-Human Lackey for Mr.Smithers.

Heroclix has a number of wheelchair characters.

Not exactly what you're looking for wheelchair-wise, but Knuckleduster makes a pair of pitch-perfect straight-out-of-central-casting villains:

The Villain: link

(Who looks a little bit like Harry Flashman, IMHO), and

The Robber Baron: link

Who has some Scrooge-ness about him.

Yes, these are good for the period. I should add these to my Wild West collection. But not "Old Man Potter" types per se.

Of course, you've probably seen the famous "lost ending" of "It's A Wonderful Life:"

Yes, that's something we often quote from when rewatching the , um, "original" version! Classic SNL pastiche.
