The latest custom action figure collection from Death By Toysposes the question: "What if Kenner had made Nintendo action figures in the '80s?" Using vintage figures from G.I. Joe, Star Wars, and Fisher Price Adventure People, Dan has created new custom figures baring the likeness of classic NES game characters.
Using the iconic box art as the cardback, these DBT customs include Super Mario Bros., Hogan's Alley, Kung Fu, Excitebike, Ice Climber, and Urban Champion. Dan has even released the makeup of each custom figure:
Super Mario Bros.
Head – Star Wars Bespin Guard
Body – Star Wars X-Wing Pilot
Head – GI Joe Wild Bill
Body – GI Joe Headman
GI Joe Snow Job
Fisher Price Adventure People biker
Head – GI Joe Backstop
Body – GI Joe Outback
Arms – GI Joe Chuckles(?)
Legs – GI Joe Quick Kick (with filed down toes)
Head – GI Joe Hawk
Body – GI Joe Bazooka (with number filed down)
Dan has also made a few available for purchase through the DBT storebut they typically go pretty fast! View the entire collection below and connect with Death By Toys on Instagram and Facebook.
