Being the broke guy that I am I'm always shuffling through flea markets and old shops looking for fun cheap toys. When this contest was announced it gave my casual browsing a more 'mission' feel (I love that). While shopping at a local rummage antique store that also sells all sorts of toys I came across this super ugly bootleg HE-MAN figure. He was so odd looking and corny I knew I could do something to him for the contest. One whole dollar was spent and off to the work bench he went. I don't know why but I thought it would be awesome to make him bald with a grown out long hair. With summer approaching I thought it would be neat to make him an ageing surfer. Like a local odd ball character who lives at Venice Beach, CA and is on the waves 365 days of the year. I sculpted the shirt, shorts, belt, modded the head, and modded the wrist guards. His feet were also modded and I implanted small lead weights in his feet to balance him out so he could stand. Before I did that he couldn't stand at all. The surf board was just made from bossa wood. THANKS for taking the time to check him out and vote!
