Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Celebrities
Creator:hitman  
Date Added:August 8, 2011
Base Figure:Andy Kauffman Jakks Figure
Height:6.00 inches
re-painted an Andy Kauffman figure a friend gave me. Carved off the hair and used Apoxie Sculpt to make the parka and top of the anteni. Used small cable wire to make the rest of the anteni. El Chapulin Colorado is perhaps Mexicos most famous charactor only next to El Chavo Del Ocho (The kid from 8). Roberto Gomez Bodanios is the actor behind both charactors. I remember growing up watching these sid coms and laughing my head off with the clean humor. This guy is amazing. I bought my daugthers a couple of DVD's of the both shows and they love it too. A couple of years ago they made both show into cartoons so a new generation can grow up with them. I've also attached a picture so you can compare my custom to the original. Please feel free to comment.

Cool! I saw this custom at the flea market on Sunday. One piece of advice, it would help if you buy some krylon matte finish spray to dull the gloss a bit. Other than that stellar job on a classic piece of mexican comedy history.
