  1. ~Continued from previous page~ His wings fold in for ground poses:
  2. Ever since Valkyrie was teased before the MI transition, I knew I had to give her a flying horse to ride. Technically, Aragorn is not a pegasus - he is a genetically modified horse. Dane Whitman's uncle, the first Black Knight, was a villain who was also an expert at genetic manipulation. He genetically modified a horse to have wings and to fly. The criminal Black Knight's horse (the original flying horse) mutated further into Hellhorse and became the mount of Deathknight. I guess there's just no reforming an evil horse. Dane Whitman used the process to create a second flying horse. Black Knight left Aragorn in the care of Valkyrie while he moved temporarily to live in the Middle Ages, but the companionship of Aragorn and Valkyrie ended up being permanent. Aragorn's recipe is simple - the World Peacekeepers brown horse, repainted (available at Big Lots now in my area) and Angel wings. These are the 6-pack Angel wings repainted to match the horse. Duplicolor took care of the brown, but I added shadings and some grays because no horse is truly white - and this is a warhorse, not a show horse. There are a few other horse options out there. The articulation is just so-so on this one. The rear legs are not jointed below the hip and the tail is immovable hard plastic. The bridle and saddle are also cheap feeling. But it is inexpensive! There is also a Prince of Persia black horse - it is better, but will cost more. The Raiders of the Lost Ark horse is already white, but is undersized for this figure IMO. Aragorn with the "stock" Valkyrie: I also modded Valkyrie by adding a spare Black Knight cape (and painting the metal silver to match her): Black Knight was Aragorn's first companion:
  3. Great job! Nice work - love that Grendel recipe! Did you sculpt the rose?
  4. Where did you get that Storm air base/stand?
  5. I went ahead and ordered off eBay yesterday - $62 for the four figures shipped. Totally worth it not to have to hunt figures single-packed per case.
  6. Wow, it's really been over a month since anyone has posted in this thread? Here's my take on Vulture.
  7. It happened to me as well. I don't recall seeing anything about pre order either. As long as I get them on 4/28, I'm not going to sweat it though.

  9. Nice Black Cat and Gambit, guys! Yelena Belova, a.k.a. The Black Widow. Surprisingly, this character has been around for 15 years this month! She has an X-23 lower torso, Jubilee legs, Aurora upper torso, LUB Black Widow arms, single carded Black Widow wrist bands and modified belt buckle, and a modified Snake Eyes belt. The head is Nicole Kidman's character from The Golden Compass. The only paint is over the shorts area (X-23's costume) and the belt buckle, but I also made her hair a brighter yellow and touched up her face, making her lips more red as well.
  10. I don't think it is glue residue. It looks like a spot where the topcoat has come off, maybe where a drop of solvent landed on her. But it did come out of the package that way, yes.
  11. That is very sharp. Doesn't he need red glowey things though? I thought red glowey things were mandatory in the Marvel Now! universe.
  12. I suspect the turnover on action figures is slow. They have a lot of old Toybiz stuff still in the box if you like those. But it's not just action figures. Comics, books, movies, music, the works. Come visit and we'll grab lunch!
  13. I gave up buying monthly comics in 1995 soon after the Age of Apocalypse, mainly due to cost. For years I kept up by reading the monthly solicitations. (That's all I could afford!). Since Marvel Now! and the New 52, I've even gotten lax about that. I do get the occasional collection, though. If you have a 2nd & Charles near you, you can get used trades in pristine condition for about $10. (Mostly I say this to be informative, but also to partly taunt Jason1551 with a reminder that the only 2nd & Charles in the state is very near my house and an inconvenient distance from his! LOL)
  14. Or give one of them a darker paint job to be King Hyperion.
  15. Excellent work, as always, but more importantly - nice design!
  16. I use Testor's Dullcote. http://www.amazon.com/Testor-Corp-Dull-Spray-Testors/dp/B0035LOUMU If your local Wal-mart has a car model section in their toy department (not all Wal-marts do) then they carry it for around $5.
