Thor Odinson - The God of Thunder

"I am Thor Odinson of the Vikings, giant. I am not the god of reason and understanding. I am the god of Thunder and Lightning!!!"

Hi guys, another custom from me. This time, the mighty Thor! Of the big 3, I've always been fan of Thor. I gotta say that the MU modern version was a very good figure but I was never a fan of that costume. I wanted something between a cross of the classic look and the modern look. This custom is heavily influence by his classic costume in MUA2. I did a lot of sculpting on his upper armor and made his skirt thing from scratch. I also redid Mjollnir from the old one to make it look bigger. The wings on his helmet was also raised a bit and I added discs on the sides. It's hard to explain some of the things I did on this guy so just take a look. Cheers guys! I hope you like him.

You can take a look at my blog to see more of my customs.

"I am the god of Thunder, lord of the savage Lightning, the very skies must tremble when speaks The Mighty Thor!"

GL Hal Jordan - The Emerald Knight

Forcing your willpower into the ring. Asking it to give your thoughts... life... that what it's like?

every time.


Part two of my Hal Jordan special. Hal has obviously taken over as my new favorite comic book superhero. Something about the concept of willpower and how powerful you can become through it fits me well. I decided to do Hal first and maybe follow up with the rest of the magnificent 7 and then the corpse. Hal here was made with careful planning and although the execution wasn't what I would've liked, it'll do just fine. 

I decided to make a simple base for him and give the base some space for the battery to be displayed. I think the lantern battery is one of the most iconic objects in the DC universe and shouldn't be left out. I originally intended to put LED's inside but I sucked at it and sticked to what I do best. Sculpted a lot on this guy and added some height as the BNB figs are on the short side. Chopped the legs and molded some mass to do that. I also decided to sculpt my own mask and hair along with the costume. I chose the Kennedy head because I thought it added more emotion if Hal's expression was a little more intense. And what would a Green Lantern be without a construct? For Hal, simplicity but accuracy and strength is the way to go. So, the standard power beam was chosen over more sophisticated constructs. I'll try to do more complicated ones for my future GL's. 

Cheers and I hope you like it! Commens are always welcome!

Hal Jordan - Green Lantern of Sector 2814

"What are you afraid of?"

People like to ask me that, when they do, they have this knowing grin on their faces, as if they expect me to answer "nothing".

I humor them most of the time because that's what they want me to say.

"I'm not afraid of anything"

Before I was given the greatest weapon in the universe, before I journeyed to the stars--

--my dad gave me the power to do anything.

He told me I could be whatever I wanted to be.

- Hal Jordan

Here is part one of my Hal Jordan special. Hope you guys like it. Feels nice to get back to customizing after all work and school.

My inspiration for this one was simple, Hal Jordan before he became the green lantern. I've always had a thing for jets and being a pilot. It's not a coincidence that GL became my favorite comic book superhero to date. I purposely photographed this custom without showing the head because it just feels... right. I chopped the upper part of the bbi fig and combined it with the lower part of Matt Trakker. I also did the same with the 2 parts of the feet so that He'd have authentic looking boots. Comments are always welcome!
