My Green Figurine



I guess there's something to be said about turning a piece of junk into something even junkier, so with that in mind, I turn your attention to the handiwork of Ken Frantz, a Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Penguins fan who re-paints McFarlane NHL figurines to look like W-B/S players.

From theahl.com:

When the NHL started coming out with their McFarlane Figurines, Frantz, a huge Patrick Roy fan, was quick to purchase the great goalie’s figurine. And then he had an idea.

He went out, picked up a couple of Eric Lindros figures, grabbed some black and gold paint, splashed it on Lindros and quickly transformed the figure of the Flyers forward into Dennis Bonvie.

“I made Bonvie out of a Lindros figure, because they were both right-handed,” chuckled Frantz. “What else do you need?”

Frantz started transforming more McFarlane figures into Penguins. Mark Messier in an Edmonton Oilers jersey soon became Tom Kostopoulos in a Wilkes-Barre/Scranton Christmas Jersey. And it took off from there.

Some of Frantz' other efforts:




One of the figurines rejected for the ahl.com article was this one, of Providence Bruins defenseman Sean Curry:

This shit is real? I'm with anonymous on this one.

(Note to self: Must go out and get McFarlane figurine to paint like Jake Taylor. I wonder if they come with arm slings and full face cages.)

The truly sad part is that this assclown thinks he is doing the world a favor by repainting Mcfarlane pieces.
Hey Homo maybe Ralph Cerilla will buy them from you.
