This is a custom figure of Stilt-Man. Yes, you read right….Stilt-Man, one of … if not the lamest villain in the Marvel Universe. I’ll give you the real world (what were they thinking when this character was created) origin. Inventor Wilbur Day was pissed off at his job and stole the designs for a hydraulic ram from a co-worker. He then built two rams and put them into stilts and attached them to a suit of armor of his own design that amplifies his strength like 10 times and became Stilt-Man to committed crimes. Why commit crimes when you can just sell or patent the design for a suit that amplifies your strength?…who knows. Stilt-Man’s criminal career consist of getting his @$$ handed to him by Daredevil quite a few times, partnering up with Electro, partnering up with Blastaar, once with an adamantium forged suit tried to fight Thor, once he got his suit totally stolen from him, got missile in the crotch and a bullet between the eyes during Civil War by the Punisher…which was the end for poor Wilbur. Stilt-Man’s claim to fame, something he can brag to others villains about, he beat Spider-Man once.
This custom was made from ML 3 Magneto body, DC Classic Bat-Man head, and other figure odds & ends.
Customizer side note: Stilt-Man was a difficult custom to figure out, because I needed stilting extending action and while I tried different things, I finally found these bendable foam cylinders that were the perfect circumference around, I also had to change the feet from the original design (for the better I think) to balance the figure as he stood up, I purposely made the head smaller to show that it is armor covering his body and with all this STILT-MAN LIVES !!!! (as a marvel legend custom at least)
