Do any of you know what I should do with this guy? Should I use a stain to keep his blonde color? Or can I use a glossy varnish by min-wax? What would you suggest to blend all colors and clean him up? Would we need to sand him first, then stain? Or sand him, then varnish? Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Get rid of the dots that look like pupils. Other than that I'd leave it.

^^ I agree with these guys, you've got a nice looking patina there, why clean it up?
