  1. Yep. I call shenanigans too. the list was very X-men heavy listing what seems like every unmade X-man character (not that I would have complained). Almost no Wolverines, Hulks, Spideys or repaints. That's not how Hasbro does buisness! You're probably right no wolverines or iron mans never happen. The x-force box set would have been mine though.
  2. http://www.aftimes.com/rumors/arumor.shtml#1213304749 Considering have the list is correct this would have been awesome.
  3. I saw a nintendo wii with ten games for 10,000. Free listing strikes again.
  4. I made a gambit with a ult. nick fury coat and doc ock arms and painted it with model master leather brown which is awesome paint. I put the arms in hot water to soften and put on and the brown lighten up where the water touched and it looked like real worn leather. I wasn't brave enough to dunk the whole thing and ended up repainting that part but was really cool. I used clear red on modern iron man and then decided to switch some parts so I repainted all the red parts with flat red but it went on real weird almost like it was a wash then went over that with clear red again and it made have an almost marble look to the red. Edit I made a new gambit and did the faded look a month ago and was about to post pics but the paint kinda repaired itself looks almost like it was just regualr painted, weird. It worked for a week and I had it on my shelf now it's normal. Cool while it lasted.
  5. Basically I need a spray that I can find in stores since I don't have any hobby shops nearby and ordering's shipping starts at $6 so when I need one can or jar it's too much. So of all the sprays walmart has aren't any good for figures? Does it react well with acrylics? Also anyone know a good site to order one or two jars at a time that doesn't have high shipping for small orders? towerhobbies has reduced shipping on select items Edit found this I'll give it a shot and report any problems. http://www.naritafamily.com/howto/paint.htm Edit Enamel spray was bad and for the price of the good stuff I just got an extra bottle of acrylic instead and will just hand paint it. Got 5 customs that step one is make all black, ugh.
  6. I see it now there's that one pic mixed in with the rest. Does iron man have that much silver on him in the movie?
  7. I didn't know that about tamiya needing thinned. I thought they were pre thinned and one time when I added water (the free thinner) to one it got kinda weird. I have noticed model master seems more scratch proof and if you use a small round tip brush each jar lasts a long time since larger brushes seem to absorb so much paint and waste it. I used scalehobbyist to order, the best prices I found anywhere.
  8. I want to make some customs using their prototype ideas but I don't want to make one and have that be one of their choices. There's a toy show on the 16th? They said the new 2 packs will be out early 2010 so maybe the 16th we'll know. When's san diego comic con?

  10. I don't want to over thin it but I've tried every trick to prevent paint rubbing and can't win so maybe it's the paint. How much is enough?
  11. I can't draw to save my life but with a small round brush and taking it in sections I managed to make a nice line freehanded. If a leg has a seem in the plastic it'll give you something to aim for.
  12. Usually a little superglue. That's the biggest pain doing these. It's important to do really thin coats, I'm pretty much drybrushing and wait an hour before you touch it even though it's dry to the touch in 10 mins.
  13. Mine's like that too. I turned him sideways and put glue on the parts that touch, let it dry so when you turn it straight the glue will thicken the parts and it won't be loose. Just make sure it's dry, I tried this on venom's arm and ruined it.
  14. What's the name of the skin paint on your wolverine agent of shield figure?
  15. That may be since I sprayed in the garage during winter. It is almost dry now, luckily it was solid black and silver so it was easy to touch up.
  16. My superglue just exploded on me too, the lid was stuck and when I twisted it the metal tubing tore. Skin is clean but my nails are still coated.
  17. So on a website tutorial it said to use krylon crystal clear spray to seal your figure, it's my first custom but now it's sticky, I used an extremely small amount so it wasn't over doing it. My question is does the stickness ever go away and what kind does everyone else use?
  18. What master model color is best, I used white primer since that's all I had and it looks unnatural. Has anyone ever tried to make an eye on paper and glue on? I did that for an X-men symbol on a belt and thought it looked good. I don't what to use head casts because of having to do the eyes. :spidey_read_thread:
  19. I'm just about to get into customs but I avoid sculpting and emblems like the plague so these other guys have to do the impressive stuff. I about to start xforce wolverine my own modern iron man and a red hulk and some other ideas. Some stuff arrives tomorrow. Mostly googling customs for ideas.
