  1. I don't think we've gotten a definitive version yet. All the figures so far have come close, but there is something holding them back:


    Box Set-The sculpt is good for the most part, but the arms are too thin, she is far too tall, and the neck is all kinds of effed up. Also, the figure is box set only, so you'd have to either get four figures that have already been released or pay high prices on EBay.


    Movie-Not counting the fact that it's the wrong design, Toybiz tried to put comic proportions on a real-world figure, which means she is far too thin, even for Jessica Alba.


    FFC-Horribly shortpacked along with the rest of her series, and she has limited articulation and an action feature that makes no sense.


    MLF4-Not using the classic design, and the face is way off. Other than that, she is pretty good.


    It looks like the new two-pack figure will fix all those problems, and is in the classic blue/black costume.

  2. Ever wanted the Marvel and DC universes to be combined with each other, or other universes, like HALO or Spawn? Well, here's your chance. Submit entries either on the page or in links. The best strip gets a free custom figure based on a character from their strip. The rules are below:


    1. The figures used can be any scale you want. ML, Icons, GI Joe, whichever!


    2. Pictures must be used. No one likes text stories.


    3. Dialog doesn't need to be photoshopped into the images, just place it above or below the image to indicate what is happening.


    4. Be sure to get the best pics possible-clearer entries have a better chance of winning.


    5. Effects can be Photoshopped in to create interesting results.


    Have at it!


    Edit: I forgot to put a submission date-11:59, November 30 (Central Standard Time). All submissions after that will not be in the running, though they can be posted for fun. One more thing, if you are doing a multi-part series, make sure it's finished and posted by the deadline.

  3. the punisher and the hydra mold are NOT AT ALL RELATED


    and punisher and fury only share their legs



    not true. they share the exact same body except for the head and arms.


    They don't really share much. If you look at the articulation of the hips, Fury has ball-jointed hips with a thigh swivel, and Punisher omits the thigh joint (think Black Knight or Sandman). The torso on Fury has all those straps, which Punisher lacks. The arms and head are obviously different, so the only parts they shares (if any), are his lower legs.

  4. Sorry, I only post on this one, so I easily forgot there WOULD be a board for this. I will repost it there, and whoever can delete this one.


    So sorry to have ruined your day, TomTom. Please do forgive me.


    Huh, I can do subtle sarcasm too! Who knew.

    Ha, nice! I love making fun of people who take these boards so seriously too!

    It isn't a taking things too seriously deal. If I did, I probably would have flipped out by now. It's making sure things go where they are supposed to, whether people read there or not. It kinda an OCD.

  5. Well, we already have the Scarlet Witch and Emma Frost figures from the Apes arc...



    Other than that, I really think it's a bad idea. Yes, Zombies were cool, but that's because they are Zombies, and anything that even sounds like Zombies is cool. Secret Invasion is good because it plays a big fear in people-those you looked up to are suddenly trying to destroy everything. Apes aren't "kewl" like Zombies, and I doubt the story is good enough to justify it and explain the fact that they are Apes.

  6. It really all depends on the morals of a person and what toy it is. Obviously, you would hide a variant figure before the heavy pack of the wave, and you may do so without a problem.


    Besides that, a hidden toy usually finds itself back on the pegs as soon as an employee does a quick search of the pegs and shelves for the inventory. Which brings me to another point, hiding figures horribly effs the inventory. When the system shows that three out of seven were bought that day, and only two are still on the shelf after the store closes, somethings wrong:either someone stole something, or the entire system is screwed up. Trust me, I know, my dad used to work in the toy section of K-Mart (I still have the thousands of Legos to prove it).

  7. it really all depends on a few things:


    base-what the figure is to begin with, usually around $10-$20, sometimes higher if its an exclusive or such.


    parts- sometimes costs as much as a whole figure, though a customizer will usually have some spare heads, hands and whatnot laying around. note:even if they have things laying around, they may still charge a bit of money, though not as much as if they didn't have them. with sites like black arachnis casting and the like, this category usually doesnt cost as much.


    Paint-again, a customizer will probably have multiples of basic colors (black, red, blue, white, etc.) laying around, but if they have to buy more of a certain color to achieve an effect, its getting added to the price. Luckily, most bottles of paint are 2 or 3 dollars, so this shouldn't be too much of an issue.


    Labor-Everyone gets paid for working, whether making sandwiches at McDonald's, or making a custom figure. Expect this to be around $50.



    This is just a basic list, there are more things, but often you are looking at the $150-$200 range for a commisioned custom, as well as those sold on EBay.
