46 to 50 points of ARTICULATION
Body - SASQUATCH starts with 42points
Opened up the figure and changed the neck. Added multiple points of articulation in the neck so the neck moves like a ball joint 360 degrees. Then added the head which is also ball jointed to move 360 degrees and has another lever to move forward in back. Repainted with 4 mixed paints and then colorwashed for multiple color layers on the head and neck. The result is about 50 points of articulation.
Somewhere between 8.5 and 9 inches tall.
William Corvinus is the first and only Lycan Elder in the Underworld series. Potrayed only in his transformed state, he is played by Brian Steele, but prior to his being a werewolf, he would have been identical in looks to his brother, Marcus. Born sometime in the 5th century, William was one of three sons of Helena and Alexander Corvinus the first immortal, and the twin brother of Marcus Corvinus. He, along with his twin brother, Marcus, inherited the immortality strain in its active form from their father. Marcus and William both shared a bond as twins that Alexander never truly saw. William was later bitten by a wolf, thus making him the progenitor of what would become the Lycan species, (his twin, Marcus, was bitten by a bat). Unlike most later Lycans, his fur was white. William was unable to transform back into human form and is never shown in human form in any of the films. His lycanthropy virus was much more potent than Marcus' vampire virus, even allowing dead victims to transform. William went on to ravage the countryside of Hungary, infecting the populace with his highly infectious lycanthropy virus. In order to combat the growing lycan threat Marcus approached Viktor, a dying warlord, to utilize his military genius and army (who became the Death Dealers) in exchange for immortality. Later, William was successfully captured and contained by the combined forces of Marcus, Amelia & Viktor.
Underworld tells the story of Selene (Kate Beckinsale), a Death Dealer bent on destroying the Lycans who allegedly killed her family. She discovers that the Lycans are pursuing a human, Michael Corvin, for experimentation; Selene captures Michael herself to find out what the Lycans are up to. Along the way, Selene not only discovers a mutinous plot to destroy the Vampire Elders, but also a shocking revelation about her father-like Elder, Viktor. The vampires, werewolves, and Lycans (werewolves who are able to shift between human and wolf form), are not supernatural creatures, but rather the product of a virus.
In Underworld: Evolution, Selene takes Michael to a Vampire safehouse and plans to return to Viktor's estate to awaken Marcus, the last Vampire Elder. Before she can return, Marcus confronts her, having been awakened by the blood of the Lycan scientist, Singe, after he was killed. Marcus does not seem keen to help Selene and wishes to steal her memories for information. While on the run from Marcus, Selene and Michael discover that Marcus is the first Vampire, and that he plans to free his imprisoned brother, William, the first and most savage Werewolf. It is revealed in the film that Alexander Corvinus is the first of the Vampire and Lycan lines. He was the only survivor of a plague that wiped out his village. Somehow, his body was able to mutate the virus, mold it to his own benefit. He had three sons, two of whom inherited their father's immortality and were bitten, one by bat and one by wolf, creating the Vampire and Lycan lines. Corvinus' third son, who did not inherit immortality, also carried the Corvinus Strain, hidden away in his genetic code — an exact duplicate of the original virus, passed along to his human descendants through the centuries. This, according to Singe, is the key to creating a hybrid.
