Since Thor made his big debut 50 years ago, he has gone through a few different costume changes. Sideshow Collectibles has once again returned to everyone’s favorite God to celebrate Thor’s contemporary look with the Modern Age Thor Premium Format Figure.
Walt Simpson’s run on Thor only lasted a few short years, but his work was some of the greatest and most accomplished for the character.
