M.Night Shyamalan’s UNBREAKABLE is one of my all time favorite superhero movies and personally in my opinion it’s one of the best superhero movies ever made. Yes, we all love Batman, Spider-Man and Superman, but M.Night Shyamalan has created the most depressed superhero the cinema has ever seen.
So coronacomingattractions.com reports that back then the wave of superhero movies hadn’t yet truly taken hold of Hollywood; there wasn’t Tobey Maguire swinging around as Spider-Man or Christopher Nolan’s nipple-less Batman on the scene. And while M.N.S. gave us his take on the origin story of a superhero and his yang, Unbreakable‘s place in the superhero movie pantheon seems to have been lost amidst the higher profile Marvel and DC heroes’ getting their movies in the ’00s.
Thankfully, there exists out there one creative person that must acknowledge the coolness of Unbreakable and its introduction of Elijah Price, a.k.a. Mr. Glass. As played by Samuel L. Jackson in the film, Glass is a man born with a weakened body. His bones are brittle and can be easily broken just by partaking in activities the rest of us do every day. That’s how he came to earn his comic book name of Mr. Glass, as the neighborhood kids called him while he was growing up.
JonPaul Kaiser decided to take his love for Unbreakable, one of his favorite movies ever, and find a novel way to enter a contest to create a customized mini munny. These rounded, diminuative action figures have been popular in the past few years, with both Marvel, DC and Star Wars licensing their heroes into 6-inch size munnys. Kaiser put his skill in painting black-and-white figures to the test and made the world’s only Mr. Glass munny, reproducing the likeness of a lopsized afro-headed Sam Jackson into mini fig form. Kaiser’s Mr. Glass munny even holds a walking cane in his tiny hand. Bonus points awarded!
