Great looking figure. Hasbro could easily do a version of M'Baku like this by recycling parts of Beast. Alas, I'm not confident we'll ever get a licensed toy of "Man-Ape".

They could just call it M'Baku

It would still be an African man dressed as a Gorilla. Disney won’t touch that with a 10 foot pole.

Sorry but that just sounds stupid to me. I don’t wonder if they will get to him or not (I’m positive they will as ML continues) ; I only question if they’ll identify him as M’Baku, Man-Ape or both… which who gives a crap honestly? Why wouldn’t they make him in his classic, badass costume for ML if it’s cool for lego and video games and cartoons, etc to do it? Puh-lease. It’s apart of who he is.

Sounds stupid because it’s true about Disney? Or sounds stupid because you don’t think it’s true? I don’t think Disney wants to put a black man in a gorilla suit in their premiere action figure line and I bet Hasbro is just as hesitant.
 

Also there will definitely be characters that never make it to the legends line. Marvel has over 1000 superheroes alone, to say nothing of at least as many villains, several dozen supporting characters that could be made, 40 thousand alternate costumes for Spidey, Wolvie , and Stark and multitudes of cosmic beings that are too large or too weird to make in plastic. But I’ll stand corrected if they ever crank out a Walrus-Man or Eon BAF.

@Audie nope, just stupid bc of the simple fact that “Man-Ape” is a black male and suited up in a white gorilla costume (regardless of the Marvel story behind it) sounds ridiculous as to why they couldn’t make him. What is the actual “problem” with it even? Enlighten me.

That is insanely good work. In fact, when I saw the thumbnail before reading the headline...I sincerely thought it was a new Hasbro announcement. Unfortunately due to the datedness of the role, I do think it's going to be difficult to get him made. Maybe as an internet exclusive? I mean, I can see how he couple potentially be viewed as problematic. Black man in a WHITE ape costume. In this climate, that's a rough sell. I mean same can be possibly said for classic Mandarin and Mephisto. But I'd def. buy one. Heck I'd buy them all.

So the answer to my question is that you DONT believe Disney will find an issue with it. Thanks. 

I think Man-Ape is a super cool character and I love this custom. I made a similar one myself a couple years ago. I’m just saying Disney and Hasbro are going to be painfully aware of the optics on that character and just avoid the classic look.

 Yes I just don’t believe they shouldnt make him just bc he wears ape deco. This unspoken insinuation that he’d be offensive bc of that is idiotic, but I’m aware of the clown show we’re living in so… it wouldn’t surprise me.
