Swiss artist and illustrator Dexter Maurer has taken some of the worlds most iconic brands and turned them into unique action figures for his Brand Knight project. Puma becomes The Wild Knight, a purple cat-like figure with two puma claws and one wild halberd. Nike becomes The Night Knight, a medieval / Arabian style suit of armor that includes twin shurikens and the dusk sword, both of which draw heavily on the swoosh shape. Maurer also gave the Brand Knight treatment to Lacoste (Dragon Slayer), Shell (The Coast Fury), Gucci (The Eclipse Servant), Champion (The Cyclops Hunter), Fila (The Cursed Warrior), Carhartt (The Marauder) and Adidas (The Archer), each of which has their own cool combination of accessories. Each of the fictional action figures has realistic actions, but due to the small parts they’d be rated 5+ if they were ever to be produced. Here’s hoping someone influential from one of the brands sees these and decides to make them because we’d pick up the entire set. More looks HERE.
