With just how reminiscent the Series 4 Soccer (Football, I know, but that's what LEGO calls him . . . at least on the US site!) Player torso is to the Argentina jersey, it had to be done!

I also thought I'd build a more recent coach version of him as well considering it was only last year during the World Cup I became aware of him.

Simple, but I'm happy with how close the fig turned out to the inspiration!

I love it! Very well done enigma! Those two customs are instantly recognizable as the Diego Maradona the player and the coach. :thumbup:

Nicely done.

Actually, the unmodified Series 4 Soccer Player reminds me a lot of Gabriel Batistuta.

Don't forget the Sumo torso for a third one set during his retirement....

Very nice!   :laugh:  I love the older Maradona. I don't know if he's angry enough though, maybe giving him a chair to throw or a table to hit with his fist will increase the authenticity of the figure!  :wink:
