Ty. Those shelving units are awesome and pretty cheap. I used to hate them until I bought one. They don't keep the dust off but I can hang stuff from 'em like the Silver Surfer and Spider-man.

Looks cool. You must have gotten Blade from a China dumpster? I've gotten a few figures that way, Just finished archangel "death version" from a body only archangel I picked up a year or two ago + vortious "death" head.

 

Nice surfer pose! Nice shelving unit, too.

 

I replaced Ms. Marvel's head with the open mask version of Dark Ms. Marvel:

I also had a body-only Blade - I added a Cade Skywalker cape (painted the interior red) and added his sword and throwing star from Vortious.

I got that Blade body from Jason1551, who said he got it for the purpose of finishing it off but never got around to it.

He probably got it from a China seller, though. I didn't ask him.

Strong guy. I posted a wip a long time ago and finally got around to finishing it. My plan was to make a modern Strong Guy with the orange and black outfit with the jacket. It ended up being a pain. The jacket I had for him didn't fit well so I shaved down his shoulders.. then decided to scrap the jacket and just go with the orange and black so I had to resculpt the shoulders and I think they were better the first time around. Next I would have had to modify the head and I really didn't feel like painting the tiny white line separating the back and orange so I figured I'd just go this route. I need to match the head a lil better but it's basically done. Hopefully if Hasbro makes a strong guy it will be the orange and black so I don't have to feel the sad.

Thanks, I didn't see it until you mentioned it but yeah. Do the hair and shades, paint the pants blue, and make the gloves flesh tone and you'd have JB

Thanks for the kind words, both of you.

 

When I attempted sand, I painted a base coat of sand-colored paint, and then while it was still good and wet I sprinkled actual sand on it thoroughly. (I used purchased diorama sand to get more uniform and cleaner particles - the finest/smallest size they had.) Then I painted over that with another thin layer of sand-colored paint, and then sealed with dullcote.It's solid as a rock, too.

PP! That is awesome.

Dullcoat works magic on figures. Can you link me to what brand you used for Dull coat?

Two things. First, awesome Guido. You've got me thinking of giving mine the overhaul it needs sooner rather than later. Second, good work on Zemo. Such simple changes on that guy makes a world of difference.

ty, I think if I were to make Guido again I'd beef up his thighs a bit. other than that I'm real happy with him. I agree on Baron Zemo. I always thought he looked dumb until I saw him with that look.

Anniversary month week 2 kicks off another new deal for you guys. Now I added assembly as an optional extra service towards the end of last month. However going forward all orders of $150 or more *before shipping* will get free assembly of 2 suited figure kits, or one Furball kit (only assembly is free you will have to pay for the kit itself). I won't be adding the flame wheel motorcycles to this because they won't fit into the boxes we currently use assembled.

That is very sharp. Doesn't he need red glowey things though? I thought red glowey things were mandatory in the Marvel Now! universe.

Thanks, and yeah the armor design does have multiple red glowy circles on it, but I opted not to because it would just be the red plastic. I'm going to order something that I think might work on this.

He looks good. I like it. I had wanted to do one too but I feel like Hasbro is going to make one eventually. I'd like to see it again when you update it.

Caliban - I have a lot to say about him but I'll try to shorten it up.
Essentially it's derivative of Onyx Phoenix's custom but with my own interpretation that strays from the comic.
Also he's not quite the hulk he is in the comics but I pictured the Herc body to be a good base before looking at reference art. Still he looks pretty cool to me and I saw a custom with him hulk sized and didn't like it.
No wash on his body. His head has a subtle wash. I chose to go that route because it all looked so clean that it worked for me as is.

I'm going to be moving so may not be customizing for awhile so I figured I'd end with a real good one.

My gripes is that the putty was at the end of it's working time when I was using it so his sleeves could have looked better.

Next was the belt I used I had to make some unwanted edits to make it work but it still looks alright.

No XSE symbols but he was drawn lots without 'em as well so it works.

Overall though I think he's pretty awesome, looks great in hand and is a very welcome addition to my shelf.

    • Not a bad assortment, especially for a movie series. Not great, but not bad. Pretty sure my opinion will improve once we see pix.
    • I scored a blink today for 6$ :D im stoked
    • Ahhh that suuucks! I was going to say, when you cancel your old card, order a new card at the same time, and the purchase should automatically transfer to your new card. That's what happened with me when I lost a credit card and went to cancel it. I was afraid that all the things still outstanding that were tied to my old card would be lost. For example, I was still waiting for a refund to finish processing for an item I had returned. But all those leftover things were transferred to my new card so I didn't lose anything (despite not physically receiving my new card for several days). But it sounds like you had bad timing where Amazon attempted to charge it in the brief window in between your two cards. That sucks. It sounds like you're willing to pay a little bit more for the set since you offered to cover the shipping and also provide bonus stuff. If that's the case, why not just pay a bit more for the scalper prices on ebay? I see some going for an extra $40. That's not ideal, but I'll bet the prices will come down a bit if you wait some more as well. This boxset is brand new so the prices are high now and if you wait until it's more prevalent in the wild, it should come down. Or maybe even Amazon will change course and (re)allow shipping to the UK again after a while. Edit: Now I see that you already did address Ebay as an option. I would still say wait until the prices come down. Or maybe you'll find it for sale locally or on another website that will ship to UK.
    • yes, toy fair at the very earliest. Hell we haven't even gotten a trailer released to the public.
