  1. Here's someone's ebay shots for ya. It's cool that we're getting multiple heads for the Hill /Carter.
  2. ...so i guess the fact that Marvel Legends SET THE BAR for action figures (in popularity and quality) has nothing to do with anything then? A 10 year run just disappears and we should be fine with it, right? Suddenly dropping one of the most popular lines of figures and forcing a sub-par replacement at half the size and the same price is acceptable? It's only a 'good business move' because the 'fans' eat up anything that comes out as quickly as they can get their hands on it. THAT DOESN'T MEAN IT'S A GOOD PRODUCT. (i mean, c'mon... compare the GI Joes to the MU's...) When Hasbro got the ML license there was an extremely noticeable DROP in the quality of sculpt, plastics, and paint... So in that aspect, maybe we're better off without Hasbro doing a 6" line (continuing the Legends). But even the MU's and Origins figures feel cheaply made to me. Inferior construction, plastics, sculpts, molds, etc. The whole idea of it makes me sick. You figure a big company like Hasbro would have eyes and ears out there... listening, watching, etc. Look at the demand for the Nemesis wave. Look at the prices a single PIECE of the BAF is going for on ePay... does that not show a demand? does that not show customer loyalty? Hell... even some of the worst ML's are going for a MINT out there. I know for damn sure there aren't any MU's going for those ridiculous prices. Sadly i was fine with paying $15 for the FFF wave figures. i was excited to see some new, diverse product on the shelves with some not-so-overplayed characters in the line. Even the Nemesis wave had some good ideas (note i say 'ideas' because for 90% of that wave looks like hot trash - especially Nova). If Hasbro is afraid of product sitting on the shelves because mom and dad don't recognize the characters (Iron Man, Spiderman, etc) then they should clearly take a look at some of the other business models out there... i.e. Mattel. I don't recognize 85% of the DC figures they put out but i can clearly see that they don't sit on the pegs for very long... not around here anyhow. Hasbro could make a S*#$-ton of money if they did a little homework and put a little effort into running their Marvel Toy division. YOU CAN HAVE 2 SCALES OF FIGURES ON THE SHELVES AND STILL MAKE MONEY. ...you just have to put a little effort into the product you're putting out there. Mattel has now taken the torch with their DC lines (both 6" and 3.75"). It's just a damn shame i don't read DC comics. -My 2 cents (sense) PS - AOA Sunfire didn't sell because it looked... well... like a Hasbro Legend. Recycled body and a lackluster appearance overall.
  3. ...because they don't plan on making any more and don't wanna piss people off before SDCC? maybe?
  4. Amen to Madthinker and you as well, monron999. Has it occurred to anyone that Hasbro started showing off this wave of figures in 2007? That's 2 YEARS ago that we started seeing the figures that are scarcely showing up at comic shops in Canada... probably because those shops ordered cases from online retailers.
  5. Something new - Started this one a long time ago, and put him away. This is an original character i created - basically an anthromorphic characature of myself. Name's Grundle. Made from smashing together X-23, box-set Nightcrawler, LotR Frodo, Milliput, Ceramic Porcelain, and some fodder. *i need to swap out the goggles for some Batman Trinity goggles. Anyone wanna help me out?* More grundle'd concept work can be seen on my deviantart page: http://mistergarbage.deviantart.com/
  6. Thanks guys! I have another 'modern' version of Lady Deathstrike in the pipeline. :D
  7. Gah... Best. April. Fools. Joke. Ever. ...and so sad at the same time.
  8. Lady Deathstrike ML Lady Deathstrike Body ML X-23 variant Head LCBH Ripclaw Hands

  10. Been working pretty hard on this most recent one. I really had a good time with it too. Man was this thing a pain in the ass to put together - a test of a lot of techniques and a lot of challenges, but pretty rewarding in the end. Enjoy:
  11. Deadpool v2.0 and finally, something i decided to paint up the other night, while waiting for some primer to dry: Movie Shield Smash Hulk repaint As i said, i have a TON of WIP's going on right now, so... someday i should hopefully finish a few up and post 'em up.
  12. Deadpool v1.5 (another required portfolio piece... at least 1)
  13. Mr. Freeze (done for FigureRealm.com's Vile Volitions contest - placed 13/118) Wall-E repaint (Quickie)
  14. a quick one: Tony Stark another quickie: Human Torch repaint Lt. Ellen Ripley Kenner style, baby
  15. Hey all - i guess i'm relatively new to action figure customizing - only been working in this medium for less than a year. I work a lot and have a bunch of side-projects going on all at once, so i don't have much time to devote to my customs lately. Turns out i have WAY more WIP's than i currently do finished projects, but i'll post some of the earlier finished ones here. Thanks in advance for looking. ML Snake Eyes (required portfolio piece for customizers, i gather) i also dabbled with LED installations for a while too: Movie Prototype Armor Iron Man Mighty Muggs Iron Man w/LED
  16. I'll take a 6 inch Goliath for my ML set. I can still ignore the tiny ones very easily. Didn't it say on the main page that the pack in's were to be 12"? AND cost $25?
  17. he could've saved some server space/bandwidth by compressing those images. The site rocked and the images were great, but they were HUGE!
