H is also for Hades and Hermes 12-inch figures by Foxbox Studio "God Complex" line of figures

Gotta put them together – Foxbox Studio's pair of God Complex Hades and Hermes 12-inch figures. These are really one-of-a-kind sixth scale figures because they are not based on any movie franchise, nor military themed but they are drawn and inspired by the gods from Greek mythology.

In Greek mythology, Hades is the King of the Underworld and god of the dead and the hidden wealth of the Earth. His consort is Persephone and his attributes are the key of Hades, the Helm of Darkness, and the three-headed dog, Cerberus. Hermes is the god of travel, messengers, trade, thievery, cunning wiles, language, writing, diplomacy, athletics, and animal husbandry. He is the messenger of the gods, a psychopomp who leads the souls of the dead into Hades' realm, and the son of Zeus and Maia.

I've already reviewed both Foxbox Studio's "God Complex: Hermes" and "God Complex: Hades" separately but haven't put them together for pictures yet, until now :) Scroll down to see more pictures of this great pairing by Foxbox Studio.

A little backstory: Acropolis, Inc, the first corporation to distribute energy to the people of Hellenic Republic, was founded by primary Ruler, Zeus. Zeus has many sons and among them is Hermes. Although he is chosen to be among the big twelve in the company, he has never been Zeus' favorite. He is always the one doing most of the work even if the glory always falls on his brothers. Hermes is quick witted and he does not need physical prowess to get what he wants. Despite being born a Ruler, Hermes is a human sympathizer and he will be a central character in aiding the humans to rise against the Rulers.

Hades is the figurehead of the largest criminal organization in Hellenic Republic, Tartarus. While he is not exactly malevolent, Hades along with trusted gun, Cerberus II, strike mortal fear into people's hearts because Hades is not bound by any laws. Neither the Rulers' nor humans' rules meant anything to him. He judges based on his own creed and justice.

Here I've added a black overcoat for Hermes. You can see MORE pictures HERE in Review III: FoxBox Studio "God Complex: Hermes" 1/6 Figure
