Penance - Thinderbolts Custom Action Figure
Custom #:13660
Name:Penance - Thinderbolts
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Date Added:March 29, 2009
Base Figure:ML Patriot
Height:6.00 inches
This is my first custom action figure. It is entirely a Marvel Legends Patriot figure that has been heavily modified. Painted with Vallejo Model Color and Testors model Master Acryl paints.

This custom took a very long time to finish. Looking back, it was probably not the best figure to begin my customizing adventures with. I really like the artist Brom and Penance's costume seems to have been inspired heavily by one of his paintings. That and the work by Marko Djurdjevic are the primary inspirations for the custom.

I have several more customs on the go and hope to be posting more here soon.

Ah thats a great info on my side. I remember Speedball got blown to bits in the beginning of Civil War. Again fantastic work man, can't wait for your next work.

blaynescott: I have been a miniature war gamer for quite some time and have experience in that area but Penance was the first action figure. Thanks for your kind words.
Niallskie: Thank you! Glad you like it. This Penance is actually Speedball (Robbie Baldwin). His powers changed some and he took the name Penance after the events that started the Civil War. I believe the Penance from Gen X was a female. Not sure about her name or story though.

Hot dangit... this is a cool Penance I tell you. Yah, looked like you have been in this business for quite a while with the quality of your work. Everything looks great on this custom. A couple of question though... is this character different from the Penance of Generation X? I am into comics but haven't ran into him yet... thanks

Thanks guys, I really appreciate it!
I came real close to quitting after this guy. Seemed like problem after problem. He was stripped down and restarted so many times I have lost count... Encouragement from folks like you kept me at it and now I am hooked. I just wish I had more time for it.

Ya, seriously, unless you told us, I'd think you'd been doing this for years! The detailing is fantastic, so I definately will look up your work to come. Welcome to the community!
