Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:tommyx

Base Figure:Invisible Woman
Height:6.00 inches
Brunnhilde is the leader of the Valkyrior, who would lead the recently-slain warriors to Valhalla. Valkyrie eventually ended up on Midgard (Earth), and became a long-time member of the Defenders.
I completed this figure years ago, but recently spiffed up the paint. The base is an Elektra body with a movie Invisible Woman head. Costume details were made from rubber bungee and elastic bands. The swords are from Taskmaster and Loki, and the cape is vinyl. This figure is probably my most memorable for what it took from me, namely the feeling in my hand, for a week! I found the item I wanted for the breast plates, a hard plastic ball. I don't own a dremel, so the plan was to cut it in half with a box-cutter, my usual method. It took over 30 minutes to cut the ball in half, and the pressure I was using to cut it caused certain nerves in my hand to go numb for over 7 days. Sometimes we must suffer for our art, right? Anyways, photos by Nara and myself, thanks for looking, and Make Mine Marvel!

Thanks for the kind words. As I said, this labour of love was made years ago. If I was to make another one, I'd probably use a taller, more muscular base, like She-Hulk. But I'll wait to see what the upcoming Hasbro figure looks like...

I used almost the exact same recipe for mine, except I stuck with the electra head. I found a piece of art online that matches the head I painted perfectly. I like the gritty battle worn look to yours.
