Beta Ray Bill. The first and best of the Thor clones, created by the master, Walt Simonson. I’m generally against alt versions of heroes because it waters down the original but BRB is the exception because his intro and back story are handled so well. If I were the king of comics, I’d create a character who traveled throughout the universe/alt realities/timelines to reap all the “false” hammers and their owners, leaving only Bill and Thor (I’m looking at you Thunderstrike, Dargo, and Thor Girl).

Bill is a ML Piledriver with head, belt emblem and Storm Breaker (his hammer) from the old Legends BRB. The helmet wings are from a HML King Thor, chest discs from MS modern Thor and trimmed cape from a Elder Predator figure. Everything else is sculpted or rendered from craft foam coated with polyurethane.

ok, so this is one of my absolute favorite customs on here so I decided to start one of my own. I collected up the piledriver and bill and started last night working on him. I have even more respect for this figure after seeing how incompatible any of the stock parts are. your recipe made this project sound easier than it is, but im determined to make it though and im hoping for something atleast half as cool as this.

I always thought that the ML Beta Ray Bill was an underrated gem in the line. A great figure with substandard paintwork.
But this is just so imposing and so badass I kinda wanna go in and try something with mine. And I love Beta Ray Bill, for much the sdame reasons you do I think. Great use of the craft foam and the paintwork is stellar. Great custom!
WOW!!!!

Incredible! best version I have seen!
lanshark1 - Thursday, May 17, 2012
Stunning! Perfect! Amazing! and a whole lot of other words I can't spell!
What a great figure to fit in with the bigger Thor that just came out.
Impressive!
scarecrow studios - Thursday, May 17, 2012
wow, every detail is spot on.
phineas curmudgeon - Thursday, May 17, 2012
Aww you dog...I was doing this too! It was one of the only ways that I could perfectly legitmize the oddness of that particular body. that's what I get for letting I'm sit on the bench for so long.
regardless, that looks absolutely amazing in every way. you even have some the same detail choices I wanted to go with. the fur cape from Lord Thor looks pretty good on that body too btw and the hammer from the old 90s version of Bill looks even more impressive. excellent work on the detail throughout though and the color palatte really makes him pop.
Yeah, I just can't take a small Bill comapared to all of these giant Thors that they're always making.

That's just lovely!

now that is really something. He looks as powerful as he should, and that cape choice is really great.
Stevid - Thursday, May 17, 2012
WOW!! Absolutely amazing custom, now this is the way he should look! AMAZING!
fastfreddie - Thursday, May 17, 2012
The choice of cape really makes him look like a regal and honorable opponent/ally of Thor. The white gloves from the design of his costume were something I always liked about him and set him apart from most others. The polyU coating of the craft foam is the only way to go when you want that stuff to look good. Outstanding job, best one going today!
Hammer of the Gods - Thursday, May 17, 2012
Thanks FF! Next time I might experiment with a Plasti-dip coating (the spray can kind). It "should" stiffen the foam and give it a rubber-like texture that takes paint really well.
fastfreddie - Thursday, May 17, 2012
Yeah, Plasti-Dip works great! I need to get some more of that soon! Latex mask paint from The Monster Makers works really good on flexible rubber stuff like capes and such too

Dude this is a sexy custom and I'd never thought I'd say that about a horse like alien! Great work bro you murdered it!
loosecollector - Thursday, May 17, 2012
Saying this in all sincerity... this is miles better than the one we got from Toybiz. Very good work bro.
Hammer of the Gods - Thursday, May 17, 2012
Means a lot to know you looked up from your busy work table to acknowledge my work. Thanks man!
Shinigami - Thursday, May 17, 2012
Yeah, Bill looks much more bada$$ this way.
Bakegirl - Thursday, May 17, 2012
Now this is a thing of BEAUTY! Luv the massive arms, the rich colors and using the Predator cape was a brilliant touch. Way to ROCK it!
Dark_Phoenix00x - Thursday, May 17, 2012
Excellent work. Been looking to do one myself, hope you don't mind me using your recipe.
Hammer of the Gods - Thursday, May 17, 2012
I'd be honored.
claytonemery - Thursday, May 17, 2012
Nice work, very sharp detailing and beautiful colors. But does he really wear white gloves? Looks odd compared to the rest of the costume.
Hammer of the Gods - Thursday, May 17, 2012
Yep. Big, Mickey Mouse looking white gloves.

Bartowski - Thursday, May 17, 2012
Super cool! And I also agree with you about Thor clones
TheRealSupaMan - Thursday, May 17, 2012
Absolutely the best BRB I've seen, nicely done!!!
1987olds442 - Thursday, May 17, 2012
Absolutely amazing work! The only thing I don't like about this guy is that I can't go buy him in the store now. And I agree Beta Ray Bill is the best Thor clone.
G_Rantula - Thursday, May 17, 2012
