Minimate Spotlight #52 Thor Movie

Filed under: Minimate Spotlight — Donny B @ 1:11 am

Action figures have long been a perfect compliment to comic books, since every kid (or kid at heart) has that natural desire to act out adventures with their favorite heroes off the drawn page. Every so often, a unique style of figure comes along that breaks the mold, so to speak. Each Saturday, Donny B will be showcasing various offerings from Art Asylum’s take on the ‘block figure’, with a weekly spotlight on Minimates.

Well, the Thor movie is out and rocking the box office. I think that garners one last look at the Thor Moviemates, don’t you? šŸ˜‰

We’ve spent a few weeks looking at various Minimate offerings based on the film’s portrayal of the main characters,Ā which Art Asylum took great care in producing.Ā It was tough narrowing down which figures to do features on, since just about all of them were extremely well made.
In the end, I decided to showcase the most prominently fantastic looking releases (leaving out Civilian Thor, Jane Foster, and Agent Coulson, among others) … and so, to wrap upĀ ourĀ 4 week-long spotlight on theĀ Thor Moviemates, here is none other than Sir Anthony Hopkins’ portrayal of Thor’s super powerful daddy: Odin.

Behind the Image:

Here’s my first Thor Moviemate imageĀ that isn’t a straight-forward-photograph. I actually tried doing this as a non-photoshopped project, but I couldn’t get it to work right. So in the end, I placed Odin on a sheet of yellow construction paper, took a pic, and then superimposed it onto the background image, which I pulled off the internet. It took like 5 minutes šŸ˜‰
