Custom Figure from the film They Live

As a #TOYSPOTTER I regularly check the Toy News International website to see what's going on in the world of figures.  The other day I looked and in their Customs section they had a figure that caught my eye.  It is a 7" "Rowdy" Roddy Piper as Nada from the cult classic, "They Live."

Nada was created by cobbling together a few different figures including a "WWE Roddy Piper head" as he puts.  The creator, Angelo, also created a really nice looking Alien Politician figure as well.  Honestly, I think I am more impressed with the Alien Politician figure as the creator had to do so much work on that head sculpt.  Both figures look nice though and this points to how cool it would be to have a proper Nada figure. 

You can see the figures here and I highly recommend taking a look.  If you haven't seen "They Live" I highly recommend you do that as well.  Here's the movie's Wiki entry if you know nothing about it.
