What needs to be said about Hercules? He's a long-standing Avenger, and lover of wine, women, and song. Not to mention a freakin' Greek God! 'Nuff said!
This is a custom I completed years ago, before Hasbro put out theirs. I was actually impressed with the Hasbro version, and basically forgot about this one. I wasn't all that impressed with it because too much of it was made with non- ML parts. But I dusted it off and repainted, and am more satisfied now. The recipe for the figure is He-Man for the upper body and legs. The lower legs and hands are from unknown figures. And finally, some ML parts: I used Dr. Doom's 'kilt', and added orange vinyl to it. The head is from the X-Men box set unmasked Wolverine. I don't sculpt, per se, so I meticulously added finely-sliced hair from other figures to make the goatee. The He-Man belt buckle was reworked into an "H". The headpiece, sash, and thigh-boots were made from rubber bungee, and the boot studs were from a ridged beach-ball. Photos by Nara and myself. Thanks for your time, and don't forget to leave a comment. Make Mine Marvel!
