Base Figure:Marvel Select Abomination.
Height:9.00 inches
I wanted a huge Ch'od for my Starjammers set to reflect his modern appearances. So I decided to go a little different from the usual base choices. I bought the MS Select Abomination for this sole purpose when he came out. But when I opened it I was struck by the awesome work and he sat for 2 years while I debated between him and the smaller and less nicer MLs' one. But like I said he's supposed to be BIG and this one looked better. First I cut and remolded his fingers and toes down to the right number (8 and 4 respectively). I sanded down the knots on the top of his head, back, upper shoulders and then re-carved their scales to match the rest of his body. Then sculpted the fins on his back from shoulder to waist. The ankles were modified to give them more range. I gave him a full repaint using black as a base, Then mixed the black with metallic green and another green lightning up the color with each layer of paint I applied to give it some depth and texture. I don't know how many I put on but I had to stop myself. His eyes were painted red and trunks black. I'm working on his pet Cr'reee but the one in the pic is from the 90s' TB figure. I really enjoyed doing this guy! Oh and unintentional or not I think Marvel should explain why these guys ended up looking like first cousins if not brothers. lol.

Thanks everyone. I do intend to do the full line up past and present. Most of their bases are ready and I'm working as time permits. I may get to post one or two more this week.

yep, to me this was always moreso Ch'od on my eyes than Abomination. I've had one earmarked for just such a purpose since I got I'm. and I feel the same way you do about the ML versions of him coming in kinda small, so this one is perfect.
nice.
