This is Rich Uncle Pennybags the well known mascot for the Monopoly Games. I made him from a pretty generic wrestling figure that I got at a thrift shop. I started by chopping the legs and shortening him about an inch taking him from around 7 to a little under 6 inches tall. Then I sculpted the head, pants, bow tie, lower arms, and undershirt from sculpey, fixit sculpt, and green stuff. The hat is a playmobile top hat modified with clay to be significantly taller and have a hat band. I also added a small magnet to keep his hat from slipping off. Mr. Monopolys hands and feet are both from different random dollar store figures modified. His neck and ankle joints I turned into socket joints to increase the range of movement. Then I finished him up with a cane made from part of a coat hanger and a simple paint job. I hope you all like! :D

I think that you did an excellent job of capturing his cartoony look from the board game (particularly the head); well done! Also, kudos for using the actual game board as a background in your photos; little touches like that make all the difference.

I distinctly remember that someone else made this guy for another contest, back in the day, but they took a more realistic approach than you did. While that one was also cool, I definitely prefer your version because it's more accurate to the source material.
