Fan Art Friday: Custom Action Figures Based on Retro Video Games
With NECA’s unveiling of their limited edition Jason Voorhees figure made exclusively for SDCC this year, I’ve been seeing quite a few custom figures popping up with the same theme. Based on the Friday the 13th NES video game, NECA’s figure is a bad-ass glow in the dark spectacle that has already become a hot item for toy collectors.
In that same vein, Freddy in Space recently posted their take on a few “would be” figures based on vintage horror games. Likewise custom toy maker John Mallamas recently shared a few of his pieces, based on the Alien vs Predator arcade game from 1994. The one that would really complete this nostalgic set for me would be a neon green turd of a toy E.T. based on the abomination of an Atari game… so I created one. You’re welcome.
