Custom MCU Figure – One-Eyed Thor (“Thor: Ragnarok” & “Avengers: Infinity War”)

Hi world! Here’s another custom of MCU Thor, this time based on his one-eyed appearance in the first half of “Avengers: Infinity War” (and also the mid-credit scene of “Thor: Ragnarok”). [Spoiler alert!]

In the final duel between Thor and his evil half-sister Hela, Hela inflicted such grievious injury that Thor lost his right eye. Thor was finally able to vanquish Hela by invoking Ragnarok – the destruction of Asgard. Now wearing an eyepatch, Thor assumes the throne and becomes King, and he decides to bring the remaining Asgard refugees to Earth.

Recipe:
Torso, legs – Shock Strike Thor from “The Avengers”
Arms – Hawkeye from “The Avengers”
Right hand – Came from a spare Star Wars custom fodder
Head – I transplanted Thor’s face to the head of Mutt Williams from “Indiana Jones KOTCS”
[Update – 14 June 2019: I’ve added a short tutorial on how to do the face transplant in the Comments section.]

The steps to create “One-Eyed Thor” are similar to that used for my custom A:IW Thor, except that I removed Thor’s cape, transplanted Hawkeye’s arms over to Thor’s torso, and added an eyepatch. Hawkeye’s right hand was replaced with a spare hand from my Star Wars custom fodder as the original hand had a strap around it.  Epoxy putty was used to sculpt the eyepatch, collar, straps on the lower arms, and additional armor over the shoulders.

After being stranded on the planet Sakaar and forced to fight in gladiatorial games, Thor gathers his forces as he plots to return to Asgard and stop Hela.  To do this, Thor forms “The Revengers” which consist of himself, Bruce Banner, Valkyrie, and his brother Loki. The team was aided in the fight by fellow former gladiators Korg and Miek.

After Hela was defeated and Asgard was destroyed, King Thor Odinson leads the remaining Asgardians as they search for a new home.

Thor tells Loki that he thinks it’s a good idea to go to Earth. Then an ominous shadow looms over them…

Loki tries to call Thanos’ bluff of threatening to kill Thor, but upon seeing that Thanos was really going through with it, Loki yields and surrenders the Tesseract.

… and after that the Hulk goes into hiding for the rest of the movie.

Thanos kills Loki, Heimdall, and half of the remaining Asgardians, while Thor was left for dead, adrift in space, until he was rescued by the Guardians of the Galaxy.

Drax thinks that Thor was the love-child of a pirate and an angel.

Thor accuses Star-Lord of mocking him.

Thor decides to go to Nidavellir to obtain a weapon to aid in his quest to kill Thanos, while Rocket and Groot tag along.

Thor obtains the Stormbreaker, and he summons the Bifrost to bring him, Rocket and Groot to Wakanda on Earth, where the battle for the remaining Infinity Stone was taking place between the Avengers and Thanos’ minions.

IMG_8060
Shortly after Thanos kills Vision and obtained all the six Infinity Stones, Thor strikes at Thanos with the Stormbreaker, hitting him squarely in the chest. But this still allowed Thanos to snap his fingers… half of all life in the universe vanish in an instant.

They lost… Now go catch the exciting conclusion in “Avengers: Endgame” !

    Awesome job dude

    Quick question how did you go about putting Thors face on the Mutt Williams?

    • Tommy Lin says:

      Hi! Thanks for your interest! Thor’s face was cut off from the head by using a penknife to slice along the hairline. Using the same method Mutt’s face was also cut off from its head. Then Thor’s face was shaved down until it somewhat fits nicely on Mutt’s head, and it is glued into place, while still making sure that the head can still fit onto the neck ball socket. Epoxy putty was used to fill in any gaps. After it dries, a bit of sanding was done to smoothen the seams, and the seam was diguised by painting over it with flesh colour and the beard.
