Man Ape (Black Panther)
Just in time for the Black Panther movie is his arch nemesis, Man Ape! The man known as M’Baku became one of Wakanda’s greatest warriors, second only to the Black Panther. He plotted to usurp the throne of Wakanda with the help of the outlawed rival White Gorilla Cult and return Wakanda to a primitive state. M’Baku became a renegade and gains his powers by bathing in white gorilla blood and eating white gorilla flesh, taking the alias of Man-Ape. I wanted the human face to be more neutral, allowing the terror and menace come through in the ape face that he wears precisely for that reason.
This beast of a figure was made from a ML Sasquatch base with ML Colossus hands and sculpted feet, armor, and details. His head was a NECA Planet of the Apes Luca head that I hollowed out, grafted in a MOTUC Cyclone head, and sculpted hair around it. His skirts are 2 movie Batman capes, and his weapons are all custom made including his sculpted scabbard. He is wrapped up in a signature AC Custom Figures paint job! Enjoy!
