I've never been completely happy with any of the Caps we've received from Toy Biz or Hasbro. I recently picked up the amazing modern Thor from the Terrax wave and while I love his size and heft, he made my other new Hasbro Legends look like little kids. So it was Thor who finally made me get to work on a new Cap.

I used a Mattel WWE fig for the base, a ML Series 1 Cap head and the modified belt and shield are from ML Caps from later waves. The gloves, boot tops, abdomen piping, mail armor and chest star were all sculpted. The armor was intimidating and took a few tries to get to a point where I was happy. In hindsight, I think the armor is what made me shy away from this project for years. The finished product and all I learned along the way make it worth while. This Cap has the height of a super soldier, looks nice next to other MLs and perfect next to Thor. Now I just need to get an Ironman with the right height to complete the big 3.

Absolutely amazing job. I always thought the FO Cap was a good size but I really think yours is a better fit scale wise.

Thanks for the feedback guys. I wish the updated photos with Thor and the comparison shot with other Caps would post. Those give a better indication of the height and proportional differences.

This is the best Cap I've seen on here! The chain mail looks perfect! And the proportions look much better than any of the factory released Caps!

HOLY CRAP H.O.T.G.!!! This is freaking sweet! You did a great job on the armour, and the parts work great together and the paints are solid!
I would love to see him with your Thor too.

I had trouble getting pics to load last night so I added some shots via an update. Cap with Thor should be posted soon.
pulpyfiction - Monday, March 26, 2012
Well let me jump on that... I'll approve the update, right now!
There... that should do it!

Nice! I love how he towers over the ML versions, and is still a perfect height next to that Thor!
