Puma Man

Puma Man

All of the PumaMan action figures were made by John Abrahams.

Head:  Hannibal Smith A-Team (Galoob)
Body:  My Loving Family Dad (Fisher Price)

The head had its jaw narrowed and its hair redone in an effort to remove all traces of George Peppardian manliness.  The body's "baby-cradling" action was switched into a deadly puma pounce with the addition of some new forearms (sculpted) and hands (robbed from an army guy).  His belt is a rubber band ornamated with epoxy clay, his emblem is sculpted, and his shirt tail is a scrap of soft plastic.  The boots are modified from Austin Powers.  The cape I slapped together with some fabric glue due to a fear of sewing.  I took a page from Leslie Hancock by hiding a wire into the seam so that the cape can be posed for flying.


Head:  Original sculpt
Body:  Dude Love (Jakks Pacific)

The head is original except for the eyes.  The shirt decoration was made with wire, and a new fist was added to add punch to his uppercut action.  Pant legs were sculpted over the wrestling boots, which were changed to those regular brown shoes.


Head and Body:  Star Trek Counselor Troi (Playmates)

Trek fans will note that, um, not a heck of a lot was done here.  I did give her a new hairdo and tried to remove all vestiges of the Trek decorations around the upper shirt.  Still, she came out looking a lot like Dr. Crusher for some reason.


Head:  Original sculpt
Body:  Dr. Evil (Macfarlane Toys)

Donald Pleasence cashed many a paycheck for wearing outfits like this one.  Reportedly he once said that he could have had a career like Olivier if it weren't for the alimony payments he had to make.  I for one believe it, even if his head is mistaken for an egg at times.  Donald rocks.  So anyway -- the head is sculpted, and the body is a total repaint, with some height removed from the legs.
