West Ham action figure sells for £6,000

An action figure of West Ham supporter Chris Knoll – better known as Knollsy – has sold on eBay for over £6000, after he rose to fame after his altercation against AZ Alkmaar hoodlums.

The father-of-four, dubbed the ‘Angel of Alkmaar’ after stemming the tide of ultras, was then immortalised in the form of a custom-made doll kitted out with bruises.

The bidding began at £20 on Monday but over the course of the week rocketed beyond the £100 and £1000 milestones. Earlier today, the winning buyer was successful with a figure of £6000, with all bids above £1k tabled this morning. In total, there were 58 bids lodged for the item, with a flurry of offers inflating the final selling price ahead of the deadline earlier this afternoon.

‘Knollsy custom figure,’ the description read. ‘I was inspired to make this custom-made and handpainted figure with unique matching packaging. It took approx 28hrs to complete and will look great on display. It is a complete one off.’

The figure sees Knollsy dressed up in identical clothing to the outfit he wore on the night he was filmed clashing with Alkmaar supporters. The immaculately detailed doll is completed with a shouting face, clenched bloodied fists and a bruised face.

The packaging, meanwhile, sported the West Ham badge, pictures of Knollsy in action in the melee and an aftermath shot showing purpling around his eyes.
