Ultimate Rhino Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:23329  
Name:Ultimate Rhino
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:BurchCustoms  
Date Added:July 29, 2010
Base Figure:SMC Buzzing Beetle
Height:8.00 inches
I have always loved the design of the Ultimate Spider-Man version of Rhino, but when ToyBiz released the figure I was horribly disappointed. His sculpt was passable, but his articulation was horrible and he was barely 6 inches tall. I had Spider-Man figures who were the same height. I always wanted a better version and this contest gave me the opportunity to finally get one.

Started with a SMC Buzzing Beetle. Removed the wings, head, and electronics and tooled him down quite a bit. Gave him the head of the original SMC Ultimate Rhino and built up the neck and horns with sculpey. Sculpted (with Mighty Putty) the chest, back, forearms, hands, knees, lower leg, feet, and a few other details. Carved pipes into his upper leg. Took the shoulder pads from the original SMC Ultimate Rhino. Full paint.

Now I have an Ultimate Rhino who dwarfs Spidey...like he should.

Background is an original drawing by a local artist.

Enjoy

Definite improvement. I was also looking for the way to improve the Rhino, and you've shown me the way. Thanks!

I like this man! I always thought that that costume looks cool, and now you've given it a better base for better articulation. nice!
