  1. I really like your Black Widow. It looks better than the version Hasbro and Target taunted us with.
  2. There are a few vintage toy shops in my area that have ML's pretty cheap. I saw Man Thing for 6 bucks last week. Point is, they're out there.
  3. Hasbro should really offer blank figures on their website. They did it with mighty muggs, why not MU? You could get one cast in white or flesh tone and not have to worry so much about painting. I can't paint either of those colors and have it come out right.
  4. Wow. Your Corps looks fantastic! For reasons I can't explain, I'm especially impressed with your Guy Gardner. I never would have looked at those pieces for GG, but it definitely works.
  5. GI Joe, Star Wars, and MU heads just pop right off and right back on. I really don't think that hot water is necessary for a headswap. For other partswaps, yes, but for a headswap, no. MU and Joe usually have a smaller joint that is compatible. Some Star Wars heads I have to stuff with something to make them fit, and then I discard the pretty much worthless Star Wars body into my parts bin. That said, I just tried the Scarlett/Black Widow switch and Scarlett's hair doesn't sit flush on Widow's shoulders. It looks ok from the front, but from the side you can see the gap.
  6. I lucked upon the DD, Ms. Marvel, and Warpath variants today at Walmart! The cards were beat up, but I'm just happy to have found them.
  7. I have a fairly respectable collection in both scales, and I've got to lean towards 3.75 inches. 1) Space--Ironically, I can have more detailed and full displays with the smaller scale figures. I never even thought about army building the six inch figures, but at the small scale, it just seems more feasible. 2) Cost--with most 6 inch figures costing 15+ and most 3.75 around 7.50-8, I can get more characters for my cash. 3) Character Selection--I think there's a wider variety of characters available at the smaller scale. I love Joes, I'm down with Star Wars, and neither of those lines are available at the six inch scale. As far as DC goes, I really wish DCIH didn't suck so much, but I have a bunch of those figures. Finally, where it matters--Marvel--In two years, my MU collection is just as big if not bigger than the entire TB ML run. I'm getting characters I've waited years to see, and I couldn't be happier. 4) Customization--I've been customizing small scale figures every since I was six years old replacing O-rings in my Joes. I feel like there are more raw materials available, and I'm more comfortable customizing at the small scale. As much as everyone talks about the sculpts, I think a lot of six inch figures actually reveal more limitations in sculpts due to their size or articulation. Think of all of those ridiculously articulated Toy Biz Marvel Legends, or any DC figure kicking to the side. It's just jarring sometimes. It's a personal preference thing, and I can understand/respect the other side. For reasons I can't adequately explain, I prefer the small scale articulation. It all boils down to personal preference in the end. In a perfect world, fans of each scale would be able to get the characters they want.
  8. Holy crap! Great work! I love the imagination here. Your Mr. Freeze looks great, and I have an extra comic Monger I've been saving for an apocalypse custom, but he might be repurposed now.
  9. Even Hasbro avoids putting details into the ball joints, so don't beat yourself up about it. Your custom looks good!
  10. I'm assuming this is the wrong place to thank Hasbro for the 4 inch lines, but they are pretty awesome. That's not to take away from the Legends Scale figures. Their Daredevil was the best version I've seen, and Toy Biz released 4 different attempts in the scale. Rulk was awesome. Even if they were TB molds (which I'm not sure about), it was the big H that released them. I was also pumped to get Maria Hill and Dum Dum Dugan figures in the 2 packs. They're both characters that have been featured heavily, but I never thought would get their own figures. Getting another chance at Kang and the Skrull figures was cool, too. Hopefully the relaunch of the line will work in a way that works for collectors of both scales (ex: Masterworks figures, Dios, etc).
  11. Honorable mentions to Hasbro Black Spidey, Red Hulk, Fearsome Foes Vulture and Lizard (that was a good set), Walmart Exclusive Thor, Man Thing, and S6 Electro. 10. Fearsome Foes Rhino 9. Sinister 6 Box Set Spider-man (I never got my hands on the McFarlane version, but this one was still awesome) 8. Sentinel BAF (it would be much higher if it was the classic look) 7. Face Off Hulk (with clenched teeth) 6. Colossus 5. Nemesis Daredevil 4. Hawkeye 3. Face Off Captain America 2. Green Goblin 1. Galactus BAF (I still like mine better than the MU version) Also, I've spent a ton of time focusing on the 4inch figures recently. It was nice to check out Marvel Legends again. There are so many great figures from this line!
  12. I was surprised how quickly the deadpool 2 packs disappeared around me. I saw the set once and passed because I have the Toybiz fig, and have felt a slight tinge of regret. The Hasbro figure does look much cleaner and proportionate than the Toybiz figure, but I prefer the Toybiz headsculpt. Is it cheating to say they're both kinda awesome? If you've got Deadpool in the 6 inch scale, consider yourself lucky.
  13. That body style fits the character much better than the Wolvie: XMO figure.
  14. I'm not sure how much I would pay for him alone, but I will say he's an awesome toy. He fits in well with the MU figures!
  15. Really, is there a need to call someone a moronic retard cause they made a mistake. If you are such a computer tech guy maybe you should instead of acting like a jerk reach out and offer someone like him who was trying to help the collector community you supposedly participate in???? I think Trev is coming with the standard computer tech social skill set. You can't blame him for that, can you?
  16. The Rogue head looks great! I'll definitely have to steal that combination if they don't announce a Rogue figure at NYCC.
  17. From Hasbro, I loved the Red DD, the Blob BAF, Mariah Hill, Nova (not so much the figure as the fact that they made NOVA!) and their 2pack Sue Storm, which I still need to buy before it disappears from stores.
  18. That Prowler was awesome! I also liked the White Tiger.
  19. Your Super Soldier looks nice. You did a great job painting, but I'm not super-crazy about the Matt Tracker head. Check out the new POC Dusty head maybe. I do love the Nova custom, though.
  20. It looks fantastic. I love comic accurate Venom figures!
  21. I will pay anyone with unwanted complete Toybiz Sentinels $25 for 'em. Nobody else wants your old crappy Sentinels anymore, so it's the best offer you'll get ;). Seriously, if the new Sentinel makes the old one cheap and easy to get, it's a win win on all accounts.
  22. I just saw Tiger's Black Cat and was blown away (in a different way than Sabertooth)! I've been looking for an idea to make a Black Cat for some time, but there have always been one or two roadblocks I couldn't get past. Yours looks great! And Onyx, I don't want you to feel left out--your Predator is coming along quite nicely. Keep up the solid and patient work.
