Well It's Thursday, and I'm honoring Thor on his day today with two customs!

The first is a quick fix of the Marvel Select Thor that gives him the articulation of the average marvel legends figure.
I swapped the upper legs and hips with the Hasbro Marvel Legends Ruler of Asgard Thor. I had to affix the original figure's round plug from the hips that holds the torso on to the new hips. Then I had to put a new lip around the plug to keep it from going loose, keeping the connection between the hips and torso tight. It was a little playing around that made the swap a little more difficult than I thought it would be.
I was going to shave of the straps on the side of the legs, but I liked how they looked, and had an idea to paint them silver to match the suit. I like how it looks so I'm keeping it. I feel it looks like the ultimate's suits.
As for the paints on the rest of the legs, I dry brushed the legs in layers to get a light blur highlight colour over the black.

Thanks for the posts! I like me my articulation! Sorry about the photos, they are a little old, and I washed thor out a little bit in them.

Seriously bad azz! One of if not the best part swaps for MS Thor I've seen. Paints look clean also. Love it!!!
