Arkon the Magnificent (also known as the Imperion) is the ruler of the planet Polemachus. In addition to being the leader, he is also the greatest warrior of his world. When Polemachus was faced with disaster, Arkon traveled to Earth for help. He clashed with the Avengers, and on a return visit, with the Fantastic Four. Later, he became romantically involved with warrrior-woman from the future,Thundra.
This figure started out as a LCBH Conan. I replaced the head with Thor, and the boots are from a box-set Green Goblin. The fur codpiece was crafted from Conan's bear 'cape'. I used speaker wire for the belt and to augment the hair. The chest strap, buccaneer boots, and the top of the helmet were made from bungee cord. The giant gold 'necklace' is from Bullseye, and all the lightning pieces were made from Electro's accessories. The shield was made from a plastic ketchup dispenser and label tape, and the lightning staff from a paintbrush. Craft store beads on the boots completed the figure. Photos by Nara and myself. Thanks for looking, feel free to comment, and Make Mine Marvel!
