Odin Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:24564  
Name:Odin
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:adramol2010  
Date Added:September 29, 2010
Base Figure:Hasbro Thor
Height:7.00 inches
Hasbro's Thor figure was really bad and I had my thor series 8 and Marvel select thor already, and I was in the mood for making Gods. so I made Odin Gods of Gods. base figure and everything else is Hasbro and sculpted all the stuff... tunic/skirt is Foamies... my first time to use them, they are pretty easy to use thought. Didn't like the fact that Marvel's Thor has an Eyepatch so I didn't put that in my custom. (come on, A God, and he has only one eye and the other is useless?).

P.S if you guys have more God characters in marvel that I haven't seen please suggest it to me and I'll try to make em... thanks!

WOW--this looks great. I was stationed in Iceland for a couple years--and some of those folks still worship Thor and Odin. This figure and Pulpy's info brought that memory back! Great job--the detail is solid! -Fitz

Hey this is a good odin, and a good figure base for the norse god of gods, but I have to knit pick with you about the eye thing.
you said: "Didn't like the fact that Marvel's Thor has an Eyepatch so I didn't put that in my custom. (come on, A God, and he has only one eye and the other is useless?)."
Well this isn't a marvel thing, it's a Norse mythology thing, as old as the belief of Odin.
(I didn't want to use wikipidia, but this was clear and consise)
in Ynglinga saga, Odin is described as venturing to Mímir's Well, near Jötunheimr, the land of the giants; not as Odin, but as Vegtam the Wanderer, clothed in a dark blue cloak and carrying a traveler's staff. To drink from the Well of Wisdom, Odin had to sacrifice his eye, symbolizing his willingness to gain the knowledge of the past, present and future. As he drank, he saw all the sorrows and troubles that would fall upon men and the gods. He also saw why the sorrow and troubles had to come to men.
Mímir accepted Odin's eye and it sits today at the bottom of the Well of Wisdom as a sign that the father of the gods had paid the price for wisdom.
They may be gods, but this is a different mentality of deities than most. Their conquests and believed existance are story of legend and myth deeply rooted.
But heck cool paints on your custom.
