Martian Manhunter (DC Universe) Custom Action Figure
Custom #:8768
Name:Martian Manhunter
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:DC Universe
Date Added:July 20, 2008
Base Figure:DC Red Tornado
Height:6.00 inches
DCU Red Tornado, body, cape collar
DCSH Steel Cape

I saw RT sitting on the shelf at Target looking lonely so I brought him home and gave him a new lease on life. I also thought to myself it should be a while before Mattel makes him since he's not in any of the next three waves.

Sculpted the head with epoxy and extended the boot cuffs. The harness and belt were made with rubber bands, the buckle was just some fodder laying around. I forgot to detail it before taking the pics but I'll get around to it. I attached the RT's collar to Steel's cape so if RT and MM were standing net to each other on the shelf, you would think they are two separate figures and not a custom made from the other. The clasps are thumbtacks painted gold. A little heat applied to shape the collar like his JLU collar.

I like how Ross draws him pretty much the same size as the other heroes, so that's why he's not 9ft tall. Scale shot with Supes and a shelf shot with his former self.
