Edward Norton: Bruce Banner Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:34002  
Name:Edward Norton: Bruce Banner
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Select
Creator:pulpyfiction  
Date Added:October 30, 2011
Base Figure:Peter Petrelli
Height:6.50 inches
As soon as I saw this Peter Petrelli figure I knew it was going to be my Norton Banner. It was already wearing the clothes from the movie, and was in scale with the Select stuff!
His head it's a heavily reworked (dremiled, re-sculpted and repainted) guy from the buffy series.
The hands are from the dcu alternate Starman.
Unfortunately I had to get a neck that fit. So I carved the original out and fit in a more appropriate one. After that I cleaned it up with sculpt and repainted it.

Although he's been recast, Norton will always be my pick for Banner!

Thanks ole jade jaw, Cosmic Fantasy Customs, fastfreddie, suprasizeme, aussiedcfan, G_Rantula, and trialanderror for taking the time to comment!
I appreciate it, and this is one that's been sitting on my shelf forever, and I've been meaning to finish. I'm so happy to have it done!

Your work is just fantastic...truly pieces of art

Great choice for the base, and you work on the head is nothing short of amazing. I always marvel at the customizers with enough talent they can rework the heads to make them look nothing like the original head. Job well done!!!

that's a awesome idea! I actually like this guy's face better than the Norton. It doesn't even resemble Petrelli either! I have one of these heroes figures. It really works

Sorry freddie the head is a buffy figure's and not Peter Petrelli. I had to add a new neck for it to fit.

I do agree some stubble would be nice, but this is another fantastic piece. I am currently working on a receipe for a legend sized banner.

This looks great Pulpy. Nice work. I do think some shadow/stubble would help sell it as Norton though. Keep at em!
I actually had the same idea but the scale threw me. (I wanted it for the legends collection)

I had done a wash for the stubble, but maybe it wasn't enough. I also think it's time for me to get a better camera. I tend to feel like mine is missing detail, and takes to much time to get usable photos.

If you want a Banner like this in Legends scale, you could always use the buffy figure the head came with. It's the blonde vampire guy. One version of him comes with a jacket, but the version I have is in a wife beater, and looks like when banner is working on the formula in his apartment in Brazil. It might be a good option. I just needed the height of the petrelli figure to match my select figures.
