Machete!
After being betrayed by the organization who hired him, an ex-Federale launches a brutal rampage of revenge!

If you haven't seen this deliberate campy craft-work of director Robert Rodriguez, DO IT! It's an expansion of a fake trailer that was released together with Rodriguez's and Quentin Tarantino's 2007 Grindhouse. Machete continues in the B movie and exploitation style of Grindhouse. It's a hilariously action packed awesome film!
Obviously it's clear why I was inspired to make this figure!

Recipe:
Head original sculpt
TNA Wrestler Torso and hands
Hasbro M.L. Wolverine arms
A.O.A. Wolverine CROTCH
Spider-Man 2 Doc Ock legs
A.O.A. Sabretooth Feet
The vest is from another tna wrester's long jacket-cut and repainted
Machetes scratch built
The tattoos are all as accurate as I could get, and the one on the chest is done in it's entirety, for those of you who haven't seen it, it's a woman with a sombrero on.

Thanks a lot for the views!

Yeah that's the one I saw on Planet terror, not seen deathproof yet but I'm certainly gonna look into it now I know it's in the same vein, and I'll definately be looking out for the Machette film too, thanks for enlightening me pal.

If you haven't seen it... DO IT!

Yes it was made because of such a wide, positive response to the fake trailer.
Unknown User - Monday, November 1, 2010
Thank you all so very much!
El Zarco- Thanks, it took me a while to get the head sculpt right. I wanted to get it just right!
Horton- I'm a fan of your work, and your photos always look professional, so you compliment on my photos is really appreciated!
supersizeme- thanks, I should get a pool pick with him and Lindsay Lohan and her mother... maybe those are two cusoms I can do without though... Still loving that thor you just posted too!
stevid- Always a big honour when you post on my stuff! Thanks for the inspiring words!
bobtheodd- Thanks dude!
mmdiego- Thanks, that gun came from my 90's animated spiderman 2099 -> good eye!
actionfigurepalace- Thanks! I hope to keep raising the bar for myself, certainly a lot of people around here are. I'm just trying to keep up!
darththomas- Planet Terror and Death Proof were released as a duo of films called the Grindhouse, there were several fake trailers, Machete was one of them. You totally have to see the machete trailer, it's great, and the film totally lived up to the stage the trailer set! You need to check it out! Thanks for the kind words!
again thanks to everybody who took the time to share their thoughts! You don't know how it inspires me to work harder with each of my customs!

I love it man!!!, I take it it's from Planet terror? (at least that's what it's called here). So is there actually a Machette movie??

Pulpy this is absolutely amazing, your ability to make your custom look so life like is uncanny! Amazing job BRO!
Unknown User - Monday, November 1, 2010
This custom is amazing!!! Your ability to make customs in the likeness of real actors is really uncanny. The face is spot on as with the tattoos. I would love to see a pic of the senorita with the sombrero on his stomach.
horton'sheroes - Monday, November 1, 2010
Great job as always pulpy! Your pics make your figure look like it's in a catalogue! Awesome!
El Zarco - Monday, November 1, 2010
Ha ha ha ha! wow, you captured the character perfectly. Awesome custom.
