  1. There's still a peg for MU at my targets but no figures. TRU consistently has the Herc wave but nothing else.
  2. Raccoon looks to be like a MegaBloks Halo figure with the team pack Rocket head.
  3. I had an idea for a custom/web project and wanted to see if anyone had any interest in participating--also I feel like there used to be a website like this but I can't find it. I love the old Official Handbook to the Marvel Universe books. I thought a cool tumblr or blog would be a a recreation/celebration of those books with customs. So it would be a marvel universe custom placed in front of that characters page from the Handbook. In my imagination it's focused on the books up to the '89 Update since that series was the last time the full body pictures were all original pictures and not taken from other books. Although if there's interest I'd be open to doing later editions. This website is also somewhat of an inspiration as well. http://ohotmuredux.blogspot.com/ If anyone is interested, let me know.
  4. hmm. I don't use testors, but maybe adding your own mix to thicken? Like your orange is runny--add you own red and yellow to it to try to thicken it up?
  5. http://www.yojoe.com/action/02/blowtorch2.shtml With a little sculpted hair additions.
  6. I hit my TRU yesterday and found the remnants of the Herc wave...but nothing else new. Also.. IM3 Assemblers are really clearing out. I think adult fans need to admit that these are pretty far from peg warmers, it just took them awhile to really start moving. I'm hoping we see the more movie based one en mass. I would like some of them. Also, that TRU got one of those GI JOE full cases--full of Storm Shadows from wave 1. Nothing else.
  7. Nice. I'm thinking of doing a current Uncanny Avengers Thor with that head.
  8. Nice pics. I have to get that new Hulk. Paint a black tanktop on him and the pants brown and you have a 90s smart Hulk. I like the new Falcon's body, but prefer the old head sculpt.
  9. I had the bracelets from a Microman Chun-Li Street fighter figure. I cut the spikes off of that to do the ones on the arm. The ones on the torso are sculpted from green stuff.
  10. I've been seeing a lot of SHS figs showing up at TRU lately.
  11. Two 95% done WIP (just need to clean up some of the paint) Rachel Phoenix Young Avengers Noh-Var
  12. I'm seeing the 5 poa Avengers figs popping up just about everywhere now. 5.99 or 6.99 depending on the store.....sometimes same chain will even have the difference. The Thor head would be good for a modern Thor custom.
  13. I'm just posting this up to sort of help me organize custom plans I want to do and solicit input. I want to flesh out my X-men collection. Basically I'm trying to have representation of just about ever X-men member (probably up to the Utopia-era where "everyone's an X-man!") Hound Phoenix Spiderwoman body, sculpted spikes (except I actually have a the spike bracelets from a Chun-Li microman figures to use for the collar). The head is tripping me up. That hair is kind of hard. 80s butchy with the braid. X-Force Feral and Siryn Just need these two and 90s style Cable to finish my classic X-Force team. Feral will just require a lot of sculpting just about everywhere on a base body. For Siryn I'm using an X-Factor Marvel Girl, collar from a Jubilee jacket and a Joe ROC Scarlet head with hair from Firestar. wings trimmed down from the ML Banshee. classic Mimic Classic mimic has some good heft to him but isn't that tall. I was thinking something like the original Wolverine mold. I have a set of wings from a papo figure that will work nice. I just need to track down another Toy Biz Gollum figure for the hands and feet.
  14. The 5 poa figs? Saw them at Target tonight. ALMOST got Thor just cuz.
  15. Yeah that's my only critique. I wished it had been "in-scale" to be used as backdrop.
  16. The plastic bag idea is awesome. I like it! I am often looking for appropriately colored pilates bands to eventually turn into capes and such. Awesome idea with the bag. i'm sure it doesn't hamper arm movement and posability the way a thicker substance would? I wonder how baloon material would compare? I think balloon material would not work long term. They dry out eventually.. the bad thing about grocery bags is that they take decades to breakdown. I think it worked good for Captain Marvel capey/sleeve thing. I hadn't thought of the resistance band thing. There's some capes that those might work really well for.
  17. Ex Nihilo looks great. I'd love to see a better picture of the Captain Universe.
  18. Banshee Recipe: Head: Joe M.E. Blowtorch (repurposed from my Roger Dawn of the Dead custom) Body: MU Iron Fist Hands: X-Factor Cyclops (just wanted hands that were already yellow) wings/flaps- Toy Biz 5 inch GS X-men set. collar- sculpted Captain Marvel Recipe: Head SW Epi.1 Adi Gallia- hair sculpted Body: FF team pack white Invisible Woman Legs: Mockingbird cape- white grocery bag.
  19. Oh yeah, I'd like one or two Xaviers for customs... I'm rather pay retail. So if anyone sees any out in the wild.....
  20. Looks amazing! I don't recognize this character. Who is it? It looks very familiar but I can't place it... looks vaguely like 2nd costume Rage... but not exact.
  21. Maybe ask politely on the facebook page?
