Thor Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:17290  
Name:Thor
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:Madtinker76  
Date Added:September 17, 2009
Base Figure:Hasbro ML Thor
Height:7.00 inches
After seeing the movie Pathfinder the other evening, I began to think of what if Thor looked more like a dark, gritty, warlord Viking than his bright primary colored Marvel counter part. Plus I have been wanting to make a Thor custom for a while.
The Hasbro Thor was the perfect base since it already had much of the armor I wanted in its sculpt.
I used the fore arms and shoulder pads from a World of Warcraft figure that I have been pulling fodder off of for a few of my previous customs, chain mail from a Realm of the Claw figure Nakuru, that I have used for my Battle Cats and Panthors. Sculpted the helmet over the usual Thor skull cap to look more accurate like the Norse Viking wore and moved the wings lower down on the helmet. Shaved off the beard which I have been wanting to do after seeing SilayJoker's battle armor Thor. Shin armor is foamie sheet, earphone wire and epoxy. Painted him in browns, pewter, and some gold. Used the cape that came with the base figure with minor adjustments to fit over the new shoulder pads. The cape is removable.
I needed some lightning so I used some twist ties painted metallic blue. They will do until I get some kick a$$ bolts from Stevid.
Thanks for looking. Comments and Feedback are always welcomed.

Probably the best Thor custom I've ever seen; exceptional work! I the painted twist ties work great for lightning, except where they're obviously knotted together--if you melted them a bit, where they connect, you might get a more natural look.

I can't curse on here, even Dang is considered prfanity I guess. you are the man, Thinker! Hopefully Thor will look like this when he returns to claim his Asgardian throne from Loki and Baldar. Doom too!

BAD A$$ THOR BRO!!! I totally DIG the whole design. BTW, I always wanted to make a custom based on the Pathfinder movie and now I kind of have an idea.

That is the sickest Thor I have ever seen in my life! Love the concept of a darker, more realistic yet still godlike version.

Your customs are always amazing but this one you hit out of the park into the stratsphere. How about making a tutorial for utilizing the foam sheets and wire into armor? You are the master of the art.

Thou hast forged a masterpiece! Odin smiles upon your craftsmanship and has set a place for you at his Asgardian hall. Great original take on the God of Thunder!

That is sick - man there was another viking movie that was good was the 13th warrior and one with jim cavaziel can't remember the name recent to dvd I think

The gauntlets came from WoW figure Archilon Shadowheart...its a great looking figure with lots of fodder to be taken. I bought a couple more since the pieces come off relatively easy and are perfect scale for most of the ML figures I stick with.
Thanks guys, it was a fun one for me... and really pretty simple once I got the gauntlets on..
Unknown User - Thursday, September 17, 2009

thats one of the coolest thors I've seen.
blaynescott - Thursday, September 17, 2009
Well done!
I am curious though - what's the name (or at least rough description) of the World of Warcraft figure you got the gauntlets from? Those look perfect for a custom I have in the works.
