For years, I’ve lamented that Azrak Hamway Corporations or AHI didn’t take my favourite Rack Toy Concept (the Parachutist) and apply it to one of their best licenses (The Universal Monsters). I hoped it wasn’t because of the dreaded “That doesn’t make sense” law because I’d like to know how this was considered a good idea.
Anyway, it dawned on me that I may have the skills to actually make such a thing. The parachute figures always had functional sculpts and crude paint jobs, two words that my art teachers always used to describe me, so I bought a Superman parachutist and attempted to make Frankenstein, which is pictured below:
The process did not involve any sort of meltdown by yours truly, in fact, i found it relatively soothing to create such a thing. I decided to track down as many old AHI parachute figures as I could. Mr Spock became Dracula, Batman became the wolfman:
And Robin became the Mummy:
Thanks for indulging. Happy October!
