Back in the ‘70s, Morbius was so awesome in the pages of “Adventure Into Fear”. They travelled to the dimension of the Cat People, to a distant planet, and to some dimension with a huge being with eyes covering his whole body. Lots of wacky stuff went on in that series, but it was great nonetheless.
This Morbius custom is meant to represent the Morbius of that era. I wanted to make the figure for my Legion of Monsters display, since I already had Man-Thing, Werewolf by Night and my custom Classic Ghost Rider.
I used Iron Fist as a base, though the feet are from Mr Fantastic and the hands from some unknown 5” figure.
The head is Magneto’s, though as you see, I used my trusty FIXIT Sculpt to modify it. Gave him a new nose, teeth, eyes, and hair.
The collar was made from the collar from Mr Sinister’s cape.
When I painted the figure, the face, or rather, the eyes were very tricky. For some reason I couldn’t get them to look more menacing than this! He looks so sad! Well, Morbius has always been a sad character...
The figure is at least good enough for me. I’m gonna make another Morbius soon – A modern version, because the one I made a while ago sucked.
Thanks for looking!
***UPDATE DECEMBER 2007***
Resculpted face a bit. Much happier with the figure now.
