    Hey It's Mack the Knife!!!

    Morning all! Here is another strange little custom/kitbash from the dogghouse!
    The reason for the creation of this fellow is Bobby Darin's 1959 version of the
    song Mack the Knife. I was listening to WXPN, a public radio station out of
    Philadelphia, Pa one night when the song came on. I got to wondering what
    the origin of the song was, so I "wikied," it and was amazed at what I found!
    The song is based on a 1928 German opera, "The Three Penny Opera," which
    in turn was based on a 17th century, "murder ballad!" Turns out old Mack was a pretty evil *******! I thought damn, this dude is right up my alley
    Instead of getting long winded on the subject I'm providing a link if you wish
    to do further research

    HEAD: freebie from BUK, when I took advantage of his sale. Thanks dude!

    OUTFIT: Tong Ninja shirt, not sure of the pants, got them from Todd Waters
    aka IllegalMego.
    BOOTFEET: From my boy Fred aka BlackKryptonite, paint by me.
    Knife is just cut and painted plastic.

    Thanks for looking and enjoy;

          Very cool, but freaky head, very scary looking

                      I love your originality. That link was interesting. Amazing how many versions of the song have been made.
