Snake Plissken.
« on: June 02, 2022, 20:07:31 »
Here's my humble Playmobil-version of "Snake Plissken", the (anti)hero of John Carpenter's iconic "Escape from New-York" and "Escape from L.A." movies from 1981 and 1996.  :-)

I don't know the films to which you refer, but your custom figure is a good representation of the figure in the photos, Erik!
At that moment the ship suddenly stopped rocking and swaying, the engine pitch settled down to a gentle hum. 'Hey Ford.' said Zaphod, 'that sounds good. Have you worked out the controls on this boat?' 'No,' said Ford, 'I just stopped fiddling with them.' (With thanks to Douglas Adams)

Oh, nice job!  He's a great Snake Plissken.  I think maybe slightly darker brown hair might have been closer, but other than that he''s wonderful!

Will you make more?  John Diehl's punk character would be a fun one!

Great custom! And the SECOND Plissken custom we've seen on PF this year! It is truly a golden age for Playmobil Snake Plissken customs!  8-)

He looks dead cool.
It doesn’t matter how big or small your Playmobil collection is, it’s what you do with it that matters.

With the new Asterix sets there are now muscled arms in the lighter skin tone. Kurt Russel did some great action movies.
