Okay so I have not made an official custom in years. Throwing some pieces on a smeagle and entering a contest was my last project but after much prodding by my wife, sister and brother I finally got back in to it, So after enough nagging and finding the time I was able to put this together
Anyway this is M'baku the Man-Ape a character I felt they would never make in ML scale so if I ever wanted Black Panther to face off with one of his greatest rivals Id make him myself. The main base is a Wendigo from the Hulk series of Hasbro Marvel Legends. The gorilla head as well as the arms are from an old King Kong toy. M'Bakus head is the incredible Hulk from he first movie drilled out to fit. The belt and loincloth are some capes and a bit of sculpt was used to fill out holes gaps and to make the neck wider and hairier.
This Man-Ape may look a little different then many seen before but that is because when I sat down to make him I was looking at different pictures and found MANY different inspirations and ideas. The main inspiration was his earths mightiest heroes look. After that I drew from his modern and classic comic look and finally from my own wacky mind
P.S Big thanks to Yamivash 0 who gave me some killer good advice
