  1. WIP Venom I think all my other customs were wiped out in the crash.
  2. That looks great. I'd like better-formed wings on that head, though. Good call. Maybe down the road I'll sculpt or carve some better ones.
  3. this is the Cap I am trying to figure out how to make.. but I really don't want to repaint him. which parts did you repaint, if any? Similar to what NeroZero did on the last page I took the light-up base cap and the new Cap. Kept the old Cap's torso and upper arms, used the new Cap's lower arms, legs, neck and head. The only real modification I made was chopping off the old Cap's neck and attaching the new Cap's so he can still look up and down. If you're careful with that part, the blues are close enough that you don't need to paint. Although I repainted everything cause I'm crazy.
  4. Scored a Mysterio at TRU BoBo50%. Picked up a lame Avengers Skrull too for custom parts. Still on the lookout for Rhino.
  5. Finished this bad boy up this weekend.
  6. I donno. I think that's the best assortment of re-released we've seen yet. Iron Spidey is questionable seeing as how we just got him in the last wave.
  7. argh.. that hurts. good thing Hasbro decided to put in those 4 repacks instead of more Mysterio, Rhino, Elektra, Professor X, Nova, or Vision lol Or Cable, Angel, S Witch, Kang, She Hulk, Ms. Marvel, ....
  8. that is super clean looking! what do you use to sculpt? I have only tried miliput, and it SUUUUCKS Aves Apoxie sculpt. It takes some getting used to but once you learns it's pros and cons it's pretty great. And yeah, his design....it's not bad but it's totallyearly 90's to the XTREEEME but before Leifeld got a hold of the 90's and plastered it with pouches and angry lines.
  9. I didn't either when the guy requested it. His name is Bloodshed and I think he appeared in a handful of ASM issues. Total D-List but fun to make.
  10. Been working on this guy for a few weeks. My first commission! Each of the 48 spikes were sculpted individually which was a giant pain in the ass. But I think it worked out pretty well.
  11. 2 questions. Which Cap has the elastic shield? And where is Invisible woman's hair from? Really great btw.
  12. It's amazing what a business can do when they offer new products at a reasonable price. I hope Amazon continues to get MU and all the toyshopspricehikers.com learn a thing or two.
  13. Between Target and the TRU Express in Sawgrass out here, they had pretty much every figure from wave 18, 19 and 20. No sign of wave 21 yet.
  14. Which ones are the new ones? I went to Target and the MU were $2 off. I picked up another Beta Ray Bill for trade. Silver Surfer & Dr. Strange and Falcon & Cap. I also saw the Thanos & Warlock pack for the first time other than Walmart.
  15. Love these little guys. If anyone has a Spidey, Cap or Thor they'd be willing to part with I need them to complete my set!
  16. I have an extra She-Hulk MOC if anyone is interested. I was holding it for another forum member but he no longer needs it. PM me!
  17. Grabbed the SuperHero Showdown starter pack on Amazon for a whopping $12 +shipping. It arrived last night. I was actually really surprised at the level of detail in the sculpts. I mainly got it for the Spidey but the Thing is great too. I kinda think it's better than the MU version. BUT, in typical SHS fashion, the Spidey broke within the first 2 min. I was twisting his forearm when it broke off. So I spent an hour digging out the peg and whittling a new one from a sharpie clip. My first custom!!...ok maybe not.
  18. Just a warning to everybody. I got the X Factor 6 pack and man oh man. Not only is it nearly impossible to find decent paint on all 6 characters, but both Iceman and Sinister's legs fell off right out of the package. I ended up having to buy two and do a part swap just to get decent figures out of the bunch. Apocalypse is dope btw.
  19. It seems like the "go to" paints for customs are the Tamiya or Testors brands. Has anybody tried Createx Acrylics or other airbrush paints? I've used them in the past on Gundam models and vinyl and resin model kits with great results. Most people like to water down their paints to create a great finish but air brush paints come at a thinner consistancy (so they can pass through the air brush) so they give the same smooth finish. My only worry for action figures would be the paint rub but with a decent sealer they should work well.
  20. I recently bought 3 Pslylockes, 2 Storms, and 3 Gladiators in hopes that they would get a new case in. And surprisingly it worked! Wave 18 was there the next week (although I was late and it was already picked through. I returned them to a less convenient Target the following week. Hasbro and retailers suck so much at it we collectors have to do some distribution of our own.
