Meet Alan Diesler, aka Afrodisiac, a Black pimp who not only runs a stable of Wilkesborough’s finest prostitutes, but who also acts as the city’s last line of defense against some of its more bizarre menaces (monsters,aliens,evil super computers, and Richard Nixon to name a few). I recently picked up the Afrodisiac graphic novel, a spoof of 60s and 70s comics and Blaxploitation films, and knew this character must be immortilized in plastic.
The recipe was pretty simple, the base body is from a 5” Jakks wrestling figure and the head is from a 7” Jakks Apollo Creed figure. This combination gave me a ripped out body that wasn’t overly buff (by action figure standards) and the larger head “scaled” the body down even more. The afro and shoes were sculpted with Sculpty modeling clay (hardens to plastic when baked). The entire figure was repainted with acrylics and sealed with dull coat (gloss coat on the belt and shoes). The flocking fiber was the last thing added – first time I’ve incorporated that into a figure won't be the last though.
Digg it, you jive @zz suckas you.
