This is more of a fix or update to the Hasbro Shield Bash Odin than an all out custom.The Thor Movie figures aren't too terrible,but the selection of characters was limited,and other than a multitude of Thor,Loki and Odin figures,the rest were a little tougher to find.Like many other Thor fans,one of my major complaints was the lack of helmets.So,I decided to create an Odin Allfather in a helmet for myself!
I've learned that customizing is full of "happy accidents"!Sometimes it's best to go along with them and see where they take you!Most,if not all,of my customs evolve as I'm working on them,and may have differences from the source material,so my work reflects my interpretation of the characters.So,please remember,the figure may not look 100% like the comic or movie version,but I always do my best to capture the essence of the character.
Quite often I see other customizers figures and I'm in awe of their work and have to make one of my own!In those cases,I hope the original customizer realizes that imitation is the ultimate form of flattery,and I really am paying them a very sincere compliment.In cases where I know who the original customizer is,I will always give credit where it is due.
I welcome all comments and critiques of my work,and will give any additional details of my recipes if anyone would like to make a similar figure of their own.Thanks for taking the time to check out my creations,I hope that my customs inspire others to give it a try themselves,it is a fun,if somewhat time consuming,little hobby we have!
The number one tool in my customizing tool box?PATIENCE!
