    Wow! That's the nicest compliment anyone has ever paid me regarding my custom Penguin!

    Thank you so much!

    This character has definitely NOT gotten enough respect and / or action figure love throughout the years. The various-scaled Penguin figures that have been produced are, at best, "hit and miss"... mostly miss. And certainly nothing good has been offered in the 8 inch scale for this character that I can think of.

    Despite this character's "classic" status as a Bat-villain, he is widely considered to be a buffoon, and not nearly as dangerous or interesting as some of the other baddies in The Batman's rouges gallery.

    I, on the other hand, see the character differently: I see him as comical and un-threatening in his stature and appearance. But he is a vicious, ruthless, and ill-tempered killer... easily provoked, and very brutal.

    It's too bad that Joe Pesci has largely retired from acting, because it is HIS manic portrayal of "Mr Big" in Michael Jackson's (RIP) Moonwalker video, or his take on gangsters Tommy DeVito (in "Goodfellas") or Nicky Santoro (in "Casino") that I see when I imagine what Cobblepot would really be like done effectively in a live-action film.

    That is truly awesome! I actually like the Mego-style fatbody, but yours takes the cake. Any chance you will cast some up? With all the new heroic style bodies popping up, a new fatbody would be great for really unique style figures.

    It's the angle i am sure but this pic has a Bob Hope vibe going on.

    Anyway, great choice for a head, looks like you're right about Sorrell Brooke.

    I have totally forgotten about the extensive work that happened to this body.
    Those who look outside dream. Those who look within awake.
    Samples of my work are found here: Life, Liberty and Pursuit of Happiness

    To do list:
    1:6 boots for Mathilda, 1:1 Romulan Commander outfit, Ursus helmet; Cornelius appliance
    1:9 scale ape's new suit for Cornelius;

    Body looks great so far. Look forward to more pics as it progresses.
    It's not a doll it's an action figure.
