Who would have thought such a goofy costume design could turn into such a nice looking figure? Certainly not me, though I’m very happy with the results. I have been a big fan of the purple and green Legion of Doom Lex Luthor ever since I first saw him on “The Challenge of the Super Friends.”

Lex is essentially a reworked DC Direct Max Mercury figure. The straps across the chest are formed from Kneadatite which have plastic styrene half-rounds added to form the little pods. Lex’s head is a repainted Konnan Slam and Crunch wrestling figure. The rest is simply paint.

As far as the character is concerned, I really prefer the ‘business suit’ Lex Luthor. For an action figure, though, it’s gotta be the Legion of Doom Luthor. He just adds so much more spice to the shelf.
