Cat Atomic came here to chew bubblegum and kick ass… and he’s all out of bubblegum! Boy, has he done good! Taking the iconic film ‘They Live‘ and using the main protagonist from the film (as well as world famous wrestler too), Roddy Piper and creating something beautiful. Really beautiful. The Atomic Piper Lives!
Taking the fairly new Kidrobot 5inch Dunny as a platform, Cat Atomic not only used inspiration from They Live, but has also used his own unique style. We love it.
[quote cite=”Cat Atomic”]I was trying to figure out how I can incorporate my skull style on a wrestler in a creative way. I’m a fan of “They Live” and thought of how cool it would be to portray Roddy Piper as one of the aliens from “They Live”.[/quote]
The Atomic Piper Lives will be £100, as part of the CUSTOMANIA show.
