Chicago-based humor writer and artist Dan Polydoris of Chicago Toy Collector has created a series of custom action figures based on heroes from classic Activision video games for the Atari 2600. Dan built the great line of custom toys using parts from his old G.I. Joe figures.
I specifically chose Activision games due to their particularly memorable characters and recognizable box aesthetic. I used each character’s color scheme from the game (as opposed to the colors from the box art), taking only minor liberties with boots, gloves, belts, etc…
“Frostbite Bailey” – Frostbite
“Officer Kelly” – Keystone Kapers
“Short-Order Sam” – Pressure Cooker
