  1. thanks man, he was pretty simple to make, I just didn't have the patience to do a spot on job with the red paint apps like a lot of the guys on here do. Your Carnage looks really good fantastic job on the symbiotic off shoots, and claws, but I wouldn't have used the R&B Spidey mold since his molded webbing kind of stands out. I would have gone with the Black Spidey for a base for 3 reasons 1) it's a taller figure making him more in scale w/ Peter, and 2) no molded webs 3) that would have made adding the black accents easier (just don't paint that area). I really don't know why they made the web molded on. If they hadn't we'd probably have Dr Strange already. Again though espeacially considering the figure you were working with fantastic job. I had to look pretty close at the pics to figure out which fig you used. I really appreciate that man. I would have used black spidey too, but I had an extra R&B one and just decided to use him since he was just for my personal collection. I wish the webbing wasn't molded on as well. Then I would have a lot more use for that particular fig custom wise.

  3. Nothing odd about that for me since the Nemesis wave is Walmart exclusive. As for the MU stuff, Target has been getting every new MU wave and comic-packs way before Walmart. I had forgotten the nemisis wave was an exclusive, so I guess the only odd thing for me is that my walmart usually gets new MU stuff before my target. eh, so long as i can find the rest of the secret wars at some point I don't care where I buy it, lol.
  4. I wanted to share an odd finding of mine. I went hunting for the secret wars 2-packs today ( I still need the wolvie/torch one) and my Target only had the other 2. I decided to check my walmart knowing they restock the toys on thursday nights and are generally pretty good at marvel universe stuff. I was a little shocked to discover that instead of having any new MU stuff, my walmart had the entire marvel legends nemisis wave instead. So apparently, walmarts got those first while targets got the 2 packs first. I don't know if anyone else will find it odd, but I did.
  5. looks great, nice smooth paint job and good selection of parts. the face and hair are perfect!
  6. Went into my local Target today, their toy isle is in the process of being re-set. I found two of the secret wars two packs. I still need to find the wolvie/torch one. The odd thing is that in the re-set, the marvel universe stuff was on a separate isle from the wolverine toys. I just found it odd that it's set up like that.
  7. So I got tired of the crappy hip joints that my comic style Deadpool had, so I made a new one with some of his parts. The recipe: Comic Deadpool head, lower arms, lower legs, hands, feet. Rise of Cobra Snake Eyes torso and Rise of Cobra Deep Six upper legs. I also used Snake Eye's web gear with Deadpools sheaths attatched. Added random pouches and the deadpool belt buckle and now I have a Merc with the Mouth I can be happy with!
  8. I like this combo a lot! Thanks, I saw the young Indy head and thought the hair was a good fit for Warren. I went with the Johnny Storm body due to marvel's bio on angel listing him as having next to zero body fat and hollow bones. I'm not as good as some of the others on here yet. But I'm working on it!
  9. He looks really good. I also went back and forth over the face color. Though the wings really should be white. Here's mine I just wish the Hawk man wings could move for posing. Yeah, I loved yours. I too wish the wings could move. I thought about taking them off and using Jinsaotomes' recipe for a marvel legends angel to make them move, but I don't have the right sized ball joints laying around to do it. I think I will end up painting the wings white though.
  10. I picked up the DC Hawkman set on clearance at target for around 4 bucks and thought...hey. I could make Angel now. Loved the other version done on here and wanted to try my hand at it. I will warn you guys I'm not very good at this, this is only the third custom I've made, so be gentle in your critiques. The recipe: Johnny Storm body, Young Indiana Jones head, Hawkman wings. I haven't decided if I want to make his face blue or his wings white yet. I kind of like the contrast of grey wings to the costume, but maybe that's just me.
  11. Picked up Hobby and Moon tonight at a different walmart, odd thing was that they were on the clearance aisle. All of the MU figures were there. They were not on clearance, just obviously put in the wrong spot. I know I'm going to check the clearance section more often when they appear to be sold out in the normal spot.
  12. Picked up Union Jack and Blade tonight at my local walmart. I know it's been said before but the blade figure really uses the body type well. It's an amazing figure and I appreciate the little things, like the ability to store his sword in the jacket.
  13. What a day for toys! Walked into TRU tonight and found Thing, now I'm done with this wave (I'm still on the fence about the hand ninja). I was surprised to see that they had multiples of everyone in this wave in stock, too bad all I needed was Thing. I also snagged a bunch of Revenge of the Fallen toys at walmart this morning. I know this is all about marvel but I'm excited about them as well.
  14. After getting tired of the crappy hips on my movie victor creed, I decided to fix them. I took apart a wwe build and bralwer with jeans on, and used the pelvis and hips from that (they have ball jointed hips but use a similar swivel joint at the thigh area like the XMO wolverine figs. Just popped off the BNB's legs where they meet the thigh swivel, did the same to victor. Used victor's waist peg instead of the BNB's, added some paint and detailing, and problem solved. Now my victor has hip articulation akin to that of the MU figs. I sadly don't have any pics right now, but if any of you great customizers on here want to try that fix, go for it! Just wanted to pass it along.
  15. Where you at in NC? I saw the same stuff at Holly Springs Wal Mart a few days ago. I'm in Charlotte. I went to a different walmart tonight to get aquarium stuff for my girlfriend and found more of the same. Lots of black suit spidey and little else. Guess I should have gotten thing when I first saw him and just waited on black suit spidey.
  16. Picked up Ms. Marvel (warbird version) at walmart today. saw the hand ninja and lots of black suit spidey too. I got the spidey a while ago and I'm still on the fence about the hand ninja.
  17. Picked up black suit spidey and classic iron man at walmart tonight here in charlotte, nc. they had thing as well but I didn't have enough to grab him too.
