Apocalypse (Original Movie Concept) Custom Action Figure

Custom #:56141  
Name:Apocalypse (Original Movie Concept)
Custom Type:Action Figure
Toy Series:X-Men - Movies
Date Added:December 3, 2013
Base Figure:movie masters Zod (man of steel)
Height:6.00 inches
Completion Time:2.00 hours
Articulation:20 points
So upon seeing the trailer for Days of Future Past, my friend and I noticed that all the uniform details looked VERY Age of Apocalypse, and got to thinking, how cool would it be if when Wolverine returns to the future, it leads into an Apocalypse story line?!
Well here is my idea of what a movie version of Apocalypse.
I wanted him to look more realistic and fitting to the X-Men movie universe. Capturing an Egyptian look as well as a futuristic armored look.
I took a Man of Steel Zod figure and sanded down his hair and goatee, then molded his head piece.
Then I took the rubber pipes from a ML Pyro figure and glued them to his arms. Lastly, I used cylon plating for his Egyptian-looking skirt.
For painting I used 2 different blues, some silver, and hints of red in the suit, and a blue-grey for his face. Enjoy.

Nice idea. Of course there will be an Apocalypse story... Wolverine has to get his adamantium back some how...
Blain3 - Friday, December 6, 2013
Magneto can totally make that happen

Update- did you see the new banner for DoFP? He's got his claws back

If ur talking about the scene where hes got his shirt off, thats where he went back in time in his younger body... and im pretty sure hes stabbing mystique who happens to look like him. My guess is shes trying to assassinate the president as wolverine...

No, there's a new banner released of a few characters standing together and he's got his claws out in his futures uniform. I know the scene you're referring though- I can't tell if those are bone or metal. If they keep in canon with origins Wolverine, he should still have his bone claws in the past

oh, nope, havent seen that one.

Nice exicution, funny that this just went up, because I finally got Armored Zod and Faora. Did an Apocalypse a few months back so was thinking that Id turn the zod into Uriel, which would include the front skirt thing you used in this. Do you have a cerebro at your house, cuz you literally plucked the idea right out from me. JK nice job

Nice- I'd like to see... And of course I just found out my guess was right and he will be in the after-credits with the next movie centers on him. I'm a genius! Haha
