Thanks for continuing to try to help me out!
I think Luke Cage is too normal looking. He isn't beefy enough. I used to own a Marvel Legends Captain America (when ML first started) so I remember about how big he was and I bet Luke Cage is only about his size, so he isn't beefy enough.
here's a pic of the character I'm wanting to make, but I am wanting to make him with his full costume on (sleeves, gloves, helmet).. He's more of the Thanos body type than Luke Cage type. Try to ignore how big his arms look in this shot, the first pic is a better representation.
The AOA Sabretooth isn't ideal just because his shoulders are really weird and that'd be super hard to fix. He's not quite stout enough either.
This is closer to the correct body type. Those huge gloves and boots are just such a problem! They're unusable and I don't have replacement hands or boots the right size, so I ideally need to not have to replace parts, just sculpt over parts. Plus... Thanos is a bit TOO beefy.
Are there any other Marvel characters who are the same body type as Thanos without some of the incredible bulk? What about DC characters? Street Fighters? Anything other line? I thought about WWE figures, but Lord Slug isn't within human proportions, and wrestling figures have proportions that are too natural. I was thinking about characters like Venom, ones that a beefy, but not to the point of being insane like Hulk.
