Cottage Industries Can Be Scary

What you’re looking at, just in the off-chance you didn’t immediately recognize it, is a custom-crafted Mego-compatible Abomination head. Look at that sculpt, man. It’s like Abomination himself is looking at me.

Here’s what’s so awesome about this Ebay auction: Someone made this with love. Some oddball working with a scalpel and maybe some injection molding elements I don’t understand –might as well be plutonium– crafted this with blood, sweat and tears. And the very best part?

I bet Deadpool would be saying something really “funny” right here.

Oh. Haha. He’s playing guitar. I bet fans of Deadpool are also fans of musical comedy. And Dane Cook.

Deadpool’s weapons? Or Carrot Top’s box of gags?

The craftswoman at work. A little peek behind the scenes. For inspiration when working on a Deadpool custom, she probably listens to Carlos Mencia’s comedy special.
