Toy Series:Marvel Legends

Date Added:April 28, 2009
Base Figure:HML Series 2 X3 Juggernaut
Height:6.00 inches
Started with a movie Juggernaut figure. Gave him the divots with a dremmel tool. took forever, but turned out well, I think. Boots and Belt are shrink tubing. Gloves are shrink tubing over rubberbands. Head was sculpted over a LCBH Wrall head (to take up room) using Sculpey. The wings on the helmet are fodder plastic pieces. The chest was sculpted with sculpey. The blades on the wrists are moto tool sanding disks.

the base is made with scrap plastic and hot glue. full paint job.

This looks pretty good! I just re-read Daughters of the Dragon last night and saw him get kinda twisted/mutilated... Nice to see him back in one piece.

thanks for the kind words guys. the texturing was going to be on the legs too, but it took so long... maybe it'll happen in the future.

I agree with all of these guys. The rivets were a pain, I'm sure but they give the figure so much more. Definitely memorable.

I wouldn't have recognized the base figure if you hadn't told us. A lot of work and it paid off.

One of the most memorable comic arcs for me is Avengers 164-166--Whirlwind knocked Wonder Man into a new zip code. Awesome figure, Sir.

Love that base, great touch. Those rivets must have taken ages too!
