MAXx FX, The Greatest Action Figure that Never Was



Last week I had the privilege to visit my friend Mel Birnkrant, who showed me his original prototypes for MAXx FX, an action figure who dons movie-monster prosthetics to become the Werewolf, Mummy, Jason, Freddy, Swamp Creature, and Caveman. Link to my new YouTube video

Some of the BEST things somehow never make it. What a shame! I would have totally loved something like this as a kid.
Too bad committees tend to not think outside the box, or to go with what is easy or less challenging.
Thanks for sharing this.
