The figures in this quick pic of two of Marvel’s top super spies have both had a little work done. Nick Fury is an old custom back from the Hasbro Marvel Legends 2-pack days. Those came out around the same time as Joss Whedon’s Astonishing X-Men, so I added the costume details to the stock figure to match him up to that look. Amazingly, Hasbro didn’t add the gray hair on his temples, and Nick’s trademark cigar was missing – with the anti-smoking sentiment in recent years I guess I understand that part.
Madame Hydra features a replacement head by Ibentmyman-thing. When I asked him to rework the Madame Hydra head for a prettier Emma Frost, we realized there was so much you could do with the head once it wasn’t so pinched. I asked him if he wouldn’t mind making a short-haired version based on her classic appearances, which was before everyone at Marvel forgot she was horribly disfigured around her right eye and covered it with her hair. I think she turned out great!
As I was admiring Benty’s work, I found it amusing that the heads of the two top Marvel spy organizations both had eye problems and both liked the same weaponry. So I snapped this shot.
If you have interest in the Madame Hydra head or others, you can send Ibentmyman-thing a PM on the Fwoosh or email him at penguinparanoia at yahoo dot com. Thanks for looking!
