|BrickWarriors "Silent Film Star" #16/60 looks to be primarily a mix of an homage mainly to the amazing Charlie Chaplin, with just a dash of CW Fields added in.|
Now, I'm not sure if it was meant to be a complete homage to Chaplin, and if it was, they nailed it on the torso details. I will say that although the yellow skin option was not that big of a deal, to have seen this figure in a greyscale rendition would have been cool.
LEGO does produce a Bowler hat, and it's readily available online through various other sellers, so it's not hard to get one. Had there been a bowler made for this figure that also featured a bit of Chaplin's curly locks of hair sculpted to it (as his bowler was a bit smaller fitting on his head), this would have brought this figure to another level.
Most canes are just a usage of the standard hand grip sized LEGO bar elements (used to connect wheels, gears, etc.), and I was actually surprised that only one other 3rd party Lego accessory maker made an element that could be cut down some in length to make a proper looking walking cane.
