That guy is really good! He's a lot better then most of the big toy
companies... because his figures actually look like the real people!
Really well done!

> Here is what he said
> My name's Dirk, I'm a sculptor from Germany. Well, I collect Kraftwerk
> records since about 1993. I'm a real fan of them! So in the year 2000
> I've decided to sculpt them - just for myself. I've bought some old
> Mattel Ken figures (that guy from Barbie, you know) at flea markets,
> "decapitated" them and sculpted the Kraftwerk heads to apply them onto
> the bodies. First of all I sculpted them and then I built moulds and
> casted them with resin. Then I realized how hard it is to get some
> clothes for Ken - even in good toy stores! So I had to sew the red
> shirts and grey pants on my own - horrible work! Thank god I found
> some black shoes at the flea market! I've tried to get in contact with
> Kraftwerk by sending some photos of the dolls to Kraftwerk's former
> EMI manager, but there came no feedback at all - unfortunately! But
> I've expected that...[end quote]
> Since then Dirk dug out some more pictures and I was able to post them

> Take a look
> Keep Werking
