Denard Robinson Action Figure - BigTen POY Special Edition

Submitted by monuMental on November 30th, 2010 at 10:34 AM

Last night Denard Robinson was named the 2010 BigTen Offensive Player of the Year. Coaches and members of the media agreed that one of the nation's most explosive players was worthy of the conference's top offensive honor.

Earlier this season I created the Denard Robinson Action Figure, Heisman Trophy Candidate Edition (but not really real, lawyers). I made some modifications to the original artwork to give the action figure a "legendary" feel and to commemorate Denard Robinson's stellar season; the modifications include sepia tone on the cardboard packaging, a platinum football and special edition text.

As happy as I was with the Ohio State wallpaper, after another embarrassing loss in The Game I'd much rather see this on my desktop until the bowl game destination and opponent are announced. Once I know to which sunny location Michigan is headed (and who they'll be facing) I'll get started on a series of wallpapers for the lead-up to the game.

Thanks aaamichfan. This is purely a fun, personal project for me so as cheesy as it sounds, the best payment is knowing that other Michigan fans enjoy the artwork. Also, I got some unwanted attention from a lawyer representing the University of Michigan a few months back who thought I was manufacturing Denard Robinson Action Figures so I have to be sure to remain very clear about the personal, not-for-profit nature of the artwork.

Amazing how realistic it is.  I was at the Mden on friday and I overheard this mother and kid, the kid maybe was 10, who were looking for the Denard action figure.  The Mden employee of course said they didn't have it.

I felt so bad, I wanted to run over to her and say it doesn't exist.  Stop worrying about finding something that didnt exist.  Alas, I didn't want to shout in the store and run over 5 people as the Mom and son immediately exited the store.

Good work! If only the action figure were real, I'd be placing it on my Christmas list and hoping Santa placed it in my (39-year-old) stocking on Christmas morning... Where I might also have to break out the old Star Wars action figures from my youth, paint an Ohio State uniform on Darth Vader, and bring Denard into imaginary battle against the dark side of the force while we all await word from Dave Brandon...
