I always thought that Ultra-Humanite was one of the best sculpts Mattel created for the JL line. Except for his height! It’s a terrible shame that a basic characteristic of a figure can be altered to meet the needs of the packaging. I finally got sick of seeing a short Ultra-Humanite on my shelf and decided to fix the problem.
There’s not much to this project. I simply sliced the legs at the thigh and the lower leg, then drilled holes and inserted PVC rods to create the right height. Then I wrapped Magic Sculpt around the rods and shaped the new legs. The hardest part was mixing the paint to match the existing figure. (I was too lazy to repaint the whole thing. It didn’t really require such a task anyway.)
Created Summer 2008
