My apologies if this has been done a ton of times already, but here's my quick fix to the Marvel Legends Giant-man wave Captain Britain. I've had the figure for years but have only just go around to completing what I feel are improvements.

Being a hugh Captain Britain fan I was pretty excited when this figure came out but when I actually got it in my hand I was a little disappointed with the finished item. For some reason Toy Biz decided to make him look like a complete "meat head". With no neck and sloping shoulders the look was wrong and something needed to be done!

Now I think I have "Captain Ron" to credit for the neck improvement idea, I'm sure I remember seeing some pic's at the time of how Ron fixed Captain Britain's height issue - He's suppose to be 6.6" but the figures scale seemed much shorter. The answer was to remove the head and extend the bottom half of it so it sat higher on the neck.

As far as the shoulders were concerned I felt they were too small for the muscular body. So I replaced them with a red variant Iron Fist's Shoulders (I feel they are too big for the Iron fist figure) brought from the excellent "Cult Corner International" A small amount of painting and he was done.

Hope you guys like him.

(I had problems uploading larger pics - I think it must be my connection)

Brilliant idea. I went and made a whole new body for my CB, when all I had to do is elongate the neck. Very nice!
