This figure is part of a series I did mashing up the worlds of GI Joe/Cobra with Mythic Legions. This is my tribute to Destro.
You can read this character's story on my Instagram page.
I wanted to make sure I got an orc into my Mythic Legions/GI Joe mash-up wave, so my take on Destro has him as an orc weapons master. Since Destro is classically shown in black and red, I figured the Fury Orc figure was a great place to start! Besides giving him lots of weapons to wield, I painted his head black and then did some silver dry brushing to create his “helmet”. This is a very simple recipe, but I also think it is an example of a truth I regularly state here on my page – that not all customs need to be super complicated! Sometimes simple part swaps and minor paint additions can totally transform a figure and create the unique character you are going for. That is exactly what I was aiming for with my Fury Orc Destro. I also painted a second orc head for him, so he would come with a pair of heads like many actual Mythic Legions figures.
