Purple Man Custom Action Figure

 
 
Custom #:49510  
Name:Purple Man
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:Marvel Legends
Creator:tommyx  
Date Added:May 6, 2013
Base Figure:Professor X
Height:6.00 inches
Zebediah Killgrave was a spy from Yugoslavia. On one fateful mission, he came into contact with a chemical that turned his body and hair purple. It also gave him the power of mind control, the ability to literally tell people what to do. Becoming a criminal, he frequently clashed with Daredevil, and later, Jessica Jones and Luke Cage.
A pretty straight-forward custom: Sentry head on a Professor X body, with Spider-Woman hands. The hardest part was trying to get the skin tone right. Since I was inspired to make this figure from watching the Avengers cartoon, it seemed right to follow their example, and give him a two-tone purple complexion.
As always, your comments are appreciated.

thanks,

Chris

Hey guys, thanks for the interest in this figure. I guess it does look kinda red. Must be the camera, or the colour settings on my watermark program, 'cause the skin and the tie are painted the same colour purple as the Green Goblin's costume. I wanted to use different shades of purple for him (for obvious reasons!)I'd already gone with dark purple for the suit, so the skin and tie got a redder shade, like a grape. For a previous custom, Mr Sensitive/Orphan, I used a light purple for the face and wasn't happy with the results.

he looks great. Definitely a more subtle purple, but I can see hints of purple tones. I'd prefer more saturation, but maybe he really is purple and just controlling our minds to think he's not purple!

He gets purple hair and mind control powers and the best name he could come up with is Purple Man. lol

I like it, but have to agree with the other guys, It's like seeing a Green Goblin with Red Skin.....know what I mean? I wanna see this guy PURPLE!

Solid construction, but he doesn't look even slightly purple to me. I thought this was maybe a "before" custom. Maybe its the photos or my settings, but he looks like a regular old Caucasian guy to me.

If a Black man (the amazing Samjack) can be Nick Fury why can't a Caucasian man play the Purple man? Lol. J/k Great custom but I agree he's not quite purple enough for my tastes.
