Sauron / Dr. Karl Lykos Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:24920  
Name:Sauron / Dr. Karl Lykos
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:spider-man59  
Date Added:October 16, 2010
Base Figure:Ultimata Lizard / Annihilus Wings
Height:6.00 inches
Technically the same formula as others, but wanted a more biologically possible figure. Took of ultimate lizards arms and attached Annihilus wings to his shoulders. Sculpted bicepts and more shoulder to him. Then added beak, eye ridges and back part of the head. Spray painted all with flat black, then layers of 3 different greens, some yellow and some browns to add to a earthy quality to him. Comments and suggestions welcomed.

While on an expedition to Tierra del Fuego, geneticist/psychologist Dr. Karl Lykos was bitten by a mutated pterodactyl from the prehistoric Savage Land which infected him with a genetic virus that forced upon him the need to drain the life energy of others to survive. Lykos eventually became a hypnotherapist, and constructed a device to help drain his patients’ energies. After absorbing the energy of the mutant Havok, Lykos was transformed for the first time into the pterodactyl-like Sauron, named after the arch-villain of Tolkien’s The Lord of the Rings novels. He battled the X-Men, but soon began reverting back to Lykos and fled. Later, as Sauron, he attempted to kill his own lover Tanya Andersson, but was again opposed by the X-Men. As Lykos, he became despondent over his behavior, and after she and the X-Men found him he ran over a precipice and was believed dead.

Forgot to mention attached Ult. Lizards hands to were the spikes come out on Annihilus wings. They still have an articulated wrist.

This is a custom most have seen before, so it sets the bar high to be good, and this is a great job all around, but the two coolest things for me is the attachment of the hands to wings to arms and the solid paints!
