Golden Age Action Figures - Green Giant
From the very small yesterday to the really big today, this is the first and only comic book superhero character that I know of that was inspired by the mascot for a can of peas (ho, ho, ho). He is also one of the most obscure characters in the history of comics. He appeared in one issue of Green Giant Comics that was apparently only distributed in the greater New York City area in 1940. I have never seen the comic or any of the content. Apparently he was also known as Mr. Brentwood and could grow to a maximum height of 15 stories (everything's big in New York). Otherwise I don't know much at all about him. But I decided he would be a fun character to do so here he is. I used a 10" Toy Biz Daredevil action figure and glued a piece of cord around his waist as the rope belt. Otherwise it was just a lot of paint.
