I haven't even seen this movie yet, but I am familiar with the story from several different translations though, and I have always been a fan of the story. Even though I haven't seen the flick, I was anxious to make an articulated Beowulf out of Todd McFarlane's figure. First, let me give props to ToymakerB for the recipe...I used the LCBH Conan the Barbarian as the base figure. My first order of business was to carve away at the armpits on the Conan so that his arms could be posed all the way down to his side. I used the 'heat n pop' method to get all of the original Beowulf's armour off. I really wanted the chain mail to look like it was underneath the breastplate, so I painstakingly shaved off the pieces in very thin layers and attached them to his harness. I would have really liked to have been able to keep the breastplate/harness removable, but I could not come up with a very practical solution to do this and still make it look right. I had to really dremmel off a lot of Conan's back and shoulders to get the harness to fit and wrap completely around his torso. I pieced together some spare chain mail as best as I could and attached the harness permanently (*the last picture was taken prior to this as I wanted to kind of capture the mood of one of the scenes where Beowulf is confronting Grendel's mother for the first time). All in all, this was a pretty simple 'cut n paste' job, but it took quite a while to get it done. Still anxiously awaiting the movie's release on video...

The fact that you can remove his armor is awesome, and he has an overall great look
