So I set out to make a fat Thor from End Game. During the process I made a simple version of the final battle Thor, Korg’s onesie, two versions of Meik, Mantis, Road tripping Hulk, and an Asgardian batchelor pad’s worth of food props. drbindy motivated me to finally get around to taking the pics I wanted. Also, plaid is stupid and I hate it.

Fat Thor
Head: Angry Nomad cast with RoC Covergirl hair and Aves
Torso: MU Sandman with Aves and twine
Legs and feet: MU Sandman
Upper arms: Indiana Jones Temple Guard
Lower arms: MTF Agent
Alt hands: Retaliation Roadblock
Robe: Revenge of the Sith hologram Plo Koonn with New Sculpt Slice belt
Mjolnir: Movie Thor
Beer mug: Dime Novel Legends

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.

Final Battle Thor

Head: Marvel Legends shrink with sculpted hair
Stormbreaker: End Game keychain

Korg
MU figure with customized Ken shirt
Headphones: Fortnite
Controller: TF Bot Bots
Kanabo club: 25th Red Ninja claw staff

Meik
Grub body: Aves over Mega Construx HALO torso and arms connected to BFS Gorgon tail end
New Sculpt Overkill blade hand
Aves sculpted pizza slice
Cardboard paperclip box, printed logo label, GoodToGo cast pizza.

Armored body: Aves head on Geonosis soldier and water bottle cap helmet

I originally wanted to do a comic accurate Meik. Then it sort of became a hybrid movie/comics version which the Unicorn Addict was not having. She convinced me the scene I was going for was from the movie so he should look like the movie. Yet Korg remaining yellow/orange rock instead of blue was acceptable to her.

Mantis
Head: Marcel Universe Mystique modified with bobby pins
Body: Thunderbirds Go Kayo

I would never have made a Mantis if she wasn’t in the “knife fight” scene with Thor. The parts fell together and she is a decent background character custom.
