Shermy of the Peanuts Gang Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:47227  
Name:Shermy of the Peanuts Gang
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Independent Comics
Creator:claytonemery  
Date Added:February 17, 2013
Base Figure:Linus + Charlie Brown Christmas Set
Height:4.00 inches
Shermy of the Peanuts gang, Charlie Brown's oldest friend. With the distinction of appearing in the very first strip and setting the tone for oddball comment to come. Made from a Linus head and Charlie Brown winter coat body and hunting hat. Schulz drew two types of heads: round and squash-shaped. I had to widen Shermy's skull with green putty to make him look older. I also inserted thick card into his legs to make him taller. His hair is plastic string fitted piece by piece on end for a crew cut. The baseball was luckily a Christmas ornament. The bat is made from a pen. I want each Peanuts character to have an iconic prop, and nobody else had baseball equipment. I painted him and Dullcoted, then drew on the features with an .003 art marker. Shultz named Shermy after a childhood friend, but phased him out, saying, "I only used Shermy when a character needed someone boring to talk to." Hey, a boring friend who listens - pure gold

I once saw (can't remember where!)the Peanuts gang done as characters from Watchmen. Linus as the Comedian, Charlie Brown as Dr. Manhattan, Snoopy as Rorschach lol. Great work here, would love to see more Peanuts stuff in the Realm!!

Ha! What a coincidence - just yesterday I was listening to some "Fatman on Batman" smodcasts for the first time and, at one point, Kevin Smith and Mark Hamill were talking about that very first Peanuts strip. You did a great job!
