Cool Stuff: Custom Carded Action Figures for Movies That Never Had Action Figures

Custom Action Figures

eBay seller Old Colony Hobbies is doing something awesome, and isn’t even charging an arm and a leg for it. They’re creating custom action figures and cards for characters that never got the toy treatment (for obvious reasons). I’m talking Pennywise from It, Michael Myers, Jaws figures, Lethal Weapon, and more.

They look incredibly real and the first time I saw them I thought they were. I can’t wait to see what else they come up with, but I’m hoping for some Three Amigos figures.
