Default XM Studios - Thor by Caleb Nefzen

Pictures from Caleb Nefzen

"After some time, finally this piece will see the light. This Thor statue will be produced by XM Studios, and hopefully will be the start for a new line of Nordic Mythology. Complete Design of the piece was made by me.

Comes with 2 different display sets, one as THOR, and the other as a Viking, Celtic warrior. Brings Mjolnir, Jarnbjorn, sword, axe and a shield.

OK, here's my nitpick: I was hoping for red hair and beard....there.

Doesn't matter anyway because that is one fantastic sculpt. It loses nothing with blonde hair, the color choice for the armor and cape is perfect. This is as close to a flawless statue as I have ever seen.

This would’ve been a game changer. Too bad.

What happened? They decided not to make it or you just didn't like how it turned out?

Disney put a stop to it from what I was told. Supposedly because the statue looked too much like comic Thor.

Maybe if the hair and beard were red Disney wouldn't have noticed.

Disney is pretty fanatical about protecting their properties but "Viking" Thor was around a lot longer. Keeping everyone in the world from doing any type of Thor isn't right IMO.

You know I asked the guy who told me about Disney’s involvement if something like that would’ve made a difference but he just said XM just backed completely out and it would never get made. Heck get rid of the hammer and he is no longer Thor, just a Viking.

My Guess is the statue was still going to be solicited with a Marvel logo and Disney had approval rights. XM loves having that license I'm sure, they're going to keep their license owner happy.
