Custom #:34001  
Name:Chris Hemsworth: Thor V 2.0
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Select
Creator:pulpyfiction  
Date Added:October 30, 2011
Base Figure:Marvel Select Movie Thor
Height:7.50 inches
Continuing with my Marvel Select movie figures is my Thor fix. Maybe you saw my review for this figure. If so you know my resentment for this figure. This is my remedy!
First I boil and popped the arms and legs out. I took a pair of ML Venom leg/hip ball joints , and then dremilled the legs to fit them. The arms were replaced by DCU Aquaman shoulder and biceps with the Select's Thor's lower arms fitted and sculpted to tidy it up.
I also cut the neck to add extra articulation up and down, and I swapped the feet with a Jakks deluxe wrestler that had an exact match for boots.
Then I added an extra head. Touched up the silvers on the helmet, matched the flesh tones for everything by repainting the skin, and I also repainted the torso armour to get some more umph out of it.
Lat but not least, scale wise, I was angry that Thor and Cap are the same height, so I stole soles off an older figures boots to add that needed height I wanted. Now I have the right scale for my MS Avengers.

Thanks for the views!

bigtocinet, suprasizeme, aussiedcfan, Cosmic Fantasy Customs, and fastfreddie thanks for the comments. I'm really happy with the new range of articulation he has now, and I like switching the heads every now and then too.

F**** SWEET!!! YOU DID JUSTICE TO THIS FIGURE!.....why marvel select use these horrible articulations?....

I really like the changes you made, it makes a huge difference in the overall custom. Your work is always clean and very professional looking but your work on movie customs are outstanding. You really excel at making customs look realistic and very movies accurate. I am forever in awe of your talent.

yeah, I wished he was somewhat bigger than the Captain also, but what you have done here is very professional nonetheless. I think this would still fit with ML scale too and not look out of place
