Strong Guy Custom Action Figure

Custom #:42542  
Name:Strong Guy
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Date Added:September 8, 2012
Base Figure:Monkeyman
Height:11.00 inches
I wanted update my previous strong guy, so I decided to go with a monkeyman base. But then I thought the modern costume would be too simple for this size of a figure so I decided to go for the x-factor costume since the colours and design were more interesting than the modern look.

This guy was made from a monkeyman and he took alot of shaving, dremeling and sanding.. The arms were so time consuming, that I almost got to the point where I was gonna drop the whole project. But i got there in the end. His boots came from a juggernaut figure. His entire chest was resculpted, along with the yellow bands that you see throughout the figure. His head was a marvel select hulk, which I sculpted over to give him more of a smirk. He was painted with citadel paints. Had fun making this guy, it was a different experience. Hope you guys like him!
Constructive criticism is welcome!

I don't know man.... this custom deserves more comments and should be in the Most Talked About list. I personally know how much work it took for him to look this good. Kudos on the great sculpt and paintjob bro!

Ugh...this kind of project would've driven me nuts. The base looks great, but the paints did it for me, it looks like this is an unreleased Toybiz BAF. Very nice work.
