Captain America (Marvel Legends) Custom Action Figure
I've never been completely happy with any of the Caps we've received from Toy Biz or Hasbro. I recently picked up the amazing modern Thor from the Terrax wave and while I love his size and heft, he made my other new Hasbro Legends look like little kids. So it was Thor who finally made me get to work on a new Cap.
I used a Mattel WWE fig for the base, a ML Series 1 Cap head and the modified belt and shield are from ML Caps from later waves. The gloves, boot tops, abdomen piping, mail armor and chest star were all sculpted. The armor was intimidating and took a few tries to get to a point where I was happy. In hindsight, I think the armor is what made me shy away from this project for years. The finished product and all I learned along the way make it worth while. This Cap has the height of a super soldier, looks nice next to other MLs and perfect next to Thor. Now I just need to get an Ironman with the right height to complete the big 3.
