Flash Thompsonís Agent Venom has become a fan favorite character and his absence from the Marvel Legends

line seems almost unforgivable. He recently got a Marvel Select figure, but itís far too big for Marvel

Legends scale, and features a more spiky sculpt to the armor. I was going for his more normal look for

this custom. Venom was made using the body of an X-Men Classics Bird of Prey Angel, the head of a DC

Universe Classics Dr. Impossible, the shoulder pads from a Movie Masters Dark Knight Batman, and a ton of

fodder and sculpting.

I chose Dr. Impossibleís head, because his eyes already had the sort of Venom shaped eyes sculpted into

it. I just had to sculpt over his nose and mouth and paint it all, so that part was easy. The rest was

most decidely not. I had to completely cover up his torso, front and back, and sculpt the armor panel

line detailing into it near the edge. I had to let that cure so I could sculpt on top of that to get the

straps and buckles, and sculpt his collar as well. His biceps and outer thighs are sculpted onto as well,

with armor padding that has the same multi-paneled armor as in the comics. I sculpted his kneepads as

well to match. I glued the shoulder pads on to try and give them a militaristic look and not detract from

the articulation. This forearm and shin greaves are made from sheet polystyrene, as is the ankle armor

circling his feet. I did a bit more sculpting over that, adding buckles to the shin greaves and whatnot,

and then gave him his belt. The buckle is polystyrene, and the pouches are pieced together from various

fodder that I just glued around his waist.

I gave him the gun holster strapped to his thigh and added some fodder straps, and attached the gun

holster on his belt too. It actually just plugs onto a small screw I inserted into the figure, to act as

a ball joint of sorts. So the holster moves around and doesnít hinder articulation at all. After giving

him some heat to pack, I painted the entire thing head to toe and gave him his iconic Venom emblem and

Flash Thompson was ready to serve his country as Agent Venom!
