A while back I stumbled across some of Adam Pratt’s custom painted figures online and was amazed how he was able to transform a cheap gumball machine toy into a one-of-a-kind work of art. After a brief email exchange, I learned that Adam does commissions, so I sent off the vintage Marx Nutty Mad “End Zone” figure that I bought at the DC Big Flea last year, and asked him to have fun with it. The only instruction I gave him was that I was a fan of the Washington Redskins so it would be cool to see their color scheme on the figure.
Here is the original figure, which was a solid dark pink color..
…and here is the figure after Adam Pratt’s handiwork…
When I opened the package, I couldn’t believe this was the same figure. The figure actually felt like porcelain when I lifted it out of the box and saw the detailed paintwork. The only indicator that this is an original Nutty Mad is the Marx stamp on the bottom of the base, which is still that dark pink color. I LOVE this goofy figure so much more now!
Check out the detail of the painting–those lips actually look chapped!
This puny Dallas defender can’t bring down the ‘Skins! (If only.)
This figure is going in a prime location on the shelf and I can’t thank Adam enough for his great work. If you like what you see, head over to Adam Pratt’s website for even more and commission a little something for yourself!
