Chameleon Boy (DC Direct) Custom Action Figure
Chameleon Boy of the Legion of Super-Heroes. This is Cham’s “Booga Booga!” attack from a recent comic, asin, “Let’s throw everything at this guy and see what scares him!” So he’s morphing into a dragon (headless from the spares box), or a robot (Treasure Planet?), or a warty monster (Spawn creature), or something with tentacles (Biker Mice from Mars and Avatar tails steamed over a tea kettle to bend). Oh, and he’s got a moray eel bursting from his chest (had half a ray from an educational kit, then edged it around with polo shirt cloth stiffened with glue). And he’s elongating his neck (Tarzan’s leg) so it stands above the other changes. His antennas are green florist wire thickened with epoxy. Painting was a Pain. I kept dabbing other parts while trying to get close. The color scheme comes from a minor scandal on an old Legion letters page. Readers asked, “What happens to Cham’s uniform when he morphs?” The conclusion was his “uniform” is actually his outer skin mimicking clothes, so really Cham walks around nekkid. Hence here his tentacles start out blue, then turn orange, then metallic red. In other words, Cham not only shape-shifts to make the SHAPE, but also the COLOR of whatever he’s mimicking.
