Welcome to the first of my two super secret projects. Course now it's done so it's not super secret. :) Everyone it seems was doing a rework of the Planet Hulk figures, but no one was paying tribute to the other characters in the comic. I really like Korg and so I wanted to make a figure of him. Knowing that he comes to earth with Hulk to rough up the Illuminati and the Fantastic 4 I added my own take on the aggression against those that destroyed the Happy Home of King Hulk and his friends. You can see this in the pictures represented as a Mace made from a dismembered head of "The Thing" and the blood catcher on the Glaive.
I created the Thing's Head Mace with sculpey and baked it hard. I made the Pauldrons (shoulder plates) out of sculpey, and baked them hard. I hinged them with pins, to the shoulders so that the arms can still move and the pauldrons rotate to allow the movement. The Blade of the Glaive is made with sculpey and baked hard while the shaft is made from a broken crossbow bolt. (don't ask!) Instead of using the traditional fur to act as the blood catcher on the glaive, I used a piece of cloth painted up to look like a tattered Fantastic 4 Uniform shirt.
The Head/face was modified using Apoxie sculpt and is just a quick sculpt. The Skirts on his loin-speedo were constructed from a Black Panther cape I sacrificed for the cause. (Lord knows I have plenty!) The belt came from a Planet hulk shield or two.
I used the Planet M "IT" figure because a Thing would not have stood up next to the towering Planet Hulk figure. Besides, I wanted to use something different. Korg has a more dense rock construction than the Thing, and so I thought the "IT" figure represented that well. Besides, it was a good use for an inexpensive figure.
