I loved Thor's portrayal in End Game. I wanted to make a version of him and the Marvel Legends version sealed it for me.

Props to Lance Sputnik for the upper arm idea. When I told him I was sculpting the baggy upper arms he responded in disgust, "WHY?!" Then he proceeded to show me a half dozen other options I failed to consider.

I also discovered something about myself. I would rather make the Guardians roster, paint eyes, sow soft goods, make diorama facades, paint miniature riders and mounts, sculpt scale tortilla chips and guac and even a giant grub instead of painting plaid. I found every excuse to avoid doing it until I just wanted to get it over with. drbindy's Batcave pics really motivated me to get it done and take cool pics with it.
