Gimli's Less Known Brother Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:2334  
Name:Gimli's Less Known Brother
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Lord of the Rings
Creator:carlos1  
Date Added:April 13, 2007
Base Figure:Marvel Legends Hulk
Height:8.00 inches
This is my custom of a generic Dwarf in the LOTR mythology (I did not find references of dwarfs in the Conan mythology, so I placed it in here instead). For this figure I took the Marvel Legends Grey Hulk sanded the hair and repainted the entire figure. The beard hair came from a spawn figure (this time my loyal Springer Spaniel was spared) I tough about adding hair to the scalp but being bald gave it a certain personality so I left as is. The chainmail suit and leather vest were modified form an Ignite Roman Centurion figure. The Hammer came from the original Marvel Icons Thor I used for the Conan custom. The boots came from an old 21st Century figure. The bracelets are leather straps I had left over from previous customs. The face of the Marvel's Hulk is perfect for a dwarf figure if you can add some additional features such as hair. This figure scale is excellent for the 12" counterparts. As always your suggestions are welcomed.

Another really solid piece! This figure came together really well - it looks factory. I do like rpetras' advice on giving the hammer a wash - it would make this figure look even cooler. Keep the awesome customs comin'!

When I first started reading this I thought, "man, that's a tall dwarf!" But in 12" scale it makes a lot more sense :-)
I'd add a dark color wash to the hammer, though. it comes across a little to plastic, especially when you have used mixed materials for the costume, which I really like.

LOL!!! very catchy title for the figure

Kinda reminds me of The Dwarf from the Dungeons and Dragons film

Excellent work! I have about 10 of the gray hulk figs and have been wondering what to do with them. I might just have to make one of these myself.
