Base Figure:ML Ser 8 Man Thing
Height:7.50 inches
I took a Marvel legends Series 8 Man Thing and wasn't happy with how he looked. This is what I did.
Recipe: So from a local hobby shop I bought Green Lichen, Green Coarse Turf and Scenic Cement from Woodland Scenics.
Tacky Glue, Twisties, Apoxie Sculpt & Plasti Dip

I Plasti dipped my Manthings Twisties, drilled holes in ManThings back & arms and added them as hanging vines.
I then took Apoxie Sculpt and molded tiny mushrooms, I cut the bumps off Man Things back and drilled holes. (they are supposed to be mushrooms anyway) Once I painted the mushrooms I glued the into his back.

Covered the whole figure with Tacky Glue and pressed The Lichen & Coarse Turf all over him. Let sit overnight and then sprayed him 3 times with the Scenic Cement to Seal the turf to his body.

Airbrushed Dark green and its finished!

I grew up with the original Mike Ploog drawn series, that was his prime! Marvel needs to forget the god awful made for SciFi movie and give Manthing his own series again!
I really wasn't sure how he would turn out. I had a vision and thats how he came out, but the whole adding moss was a new experience for me. I guess if you're into trains its nothing new as thats the section of the hobby shop I got the stuff from.
Glad you both like it and thanks Hawkeye for your support!

Man Thing is one of my favorites. I had a hard time getting my hands on one but it was worth the wait. This one looks really good.

I really like ML Man-Thing, but I'm glad to see someone giving some attention to this awesome mindless muck-monster!
