I have always thought Beta Ray Bill was a cool looking character, and I saw a few customs on here and got inspired to do my own version of him. I got some inspiration form the izzyblack custom and just ran with it. I had a loose Marvel select Thor movie figure, with a broken foot, and a couple of dcuc Skallox heads. I did a gold dry brush on his arms, with a black wash to bring out the detail in the armor. I painted the red parts of the figure blue since Bills original colors were blue and gold. I then added gold bare metal foil to the disks, the center of his chest, and to the knee pad area. This really, really stands out and looks great! I painted some of the armor pieces, and the belt gold. I had a DCD Armory Aquaman figure and took the hands and shoulder pads from him. These were great because they were didn't need to be painted gold, and the hands were armored. I was going to sculpt a custom helmet for him, then I got to looking at the Aquaman helmet.....I cut off the horns from the head, and the helmet went right over the head!! it was perfect. It even comes up under his eyes. I trimmed down the chin strap just a bit, but other then that it fit perfectly. I added some blue to the knuckles and the eyes on the helmet. Last I painted the hammer a gold tint and, that was about it. I might go back and make the hammer a little bit more like the comic book one later. This didn't take too long, I had some great parts to use, but I'm happy with the way he turned out. I wanted to make him look like he belonged in the next Thor movie(fingers crossed). I hope you guys like it. It was a blast to make.
