Frank Mysterio's "Bamba Aztekoide" custom threeA 'Bambaboss' figure!

Frank Mysterio takes the futuristic, robotic design of threeA's "Bambaboss" and, simply by hand-painting with airbrush and traditional brush, he transforms the platform into a statuesque rendition of the Aztec and Mayan's Gods of the Underworld, primarily the cannibalistic Mictlantecuhtli and the decaying Ah Puch. While the decomposing, skeletal aspects of both divinities aren't represented, the fearfulness of these dark lords is clearly shown with the simple use of spotted color on the eyes and the billowing fiery smoke. Once again, Mysterio cleverly navigates how to make something utterly modern and foreign into a clear representation of the far past.
