  1. And lastly some Works In Progress: These are almost completed, but I did not have the correct paint colors, so hopefully I can update these soon and add my Forge: Death mask Archangel: Jim Lee Beast; Ant Man and more to this forum. Dum Dum Erik Lenscher/ Magneto
  2. This is one I had planned for a while and finally took the time to execute it: With a little help from Danny Rand
  3. Now on to Tony Stark. The paint started to get clumped up-overworked on this-I will have to try again at some point, A mix of Hollywood and the source material Helmet in hand
  4. Next up is my work on Norman Osborn: I tried to paint as little as I could,so here he is (BTW the crazed face is slightly disproportionate to the bodies, but I Love the expression: More subdued: Off his rocker,,,, back to business
  5. With the winter weather shutting down the south for the week, I finally got the chance to work on my first custom painting projects (mostly head swaps-thanks Rodimus and Glassman). I will say that given the opportunity to do these again, I think the results would be much better with my gained knowledge and experience. Please feel free to share any feedback or tips. Up first is a Baghead Spidey painted to make a Peter Parker head (in the photo it is resting on the spidey body-they're necks don't fit the baghead's and I am not planning to dremel it any as I like it on the FF body) please forgive the poor angle of the photo, his head would be proportionate if set on the body after dremeling, Here is a side view:
  6. I picked up Angel; world war Hulk; red hulk; nova is anybody still looking for these? I could trade or sell.
  7. Wow Psycho Pirate. Awesome work, but this must totally feel like a kick in the teeth after seeing Mr.Curto's scan on the main page. If we prepare a list of characters for you to customize, would you get to work on those right away (Hasbro seems to have quick turnaround on your customs) ;)
  8. Saw Iron Spiders; psylocke; punisher; iron man; dark hawkeye's and a few others at Target for buy one get one 50%. Anyone looking for these? Does anyone have a spare Marvel Universe Scarlet Spider figure that they are willing to trade or sell?

  10. The 2 pack MU Storm (with mohawk) had a good one-albeit small.
  11. Okay-Thanks for the warnings. I think I will buy a new exacto blade today just in case but will first try the boil and pop method. The torso is from an astonishing Wolverine figure and a Mysterio body -I am attempting to make a Vision body which will require less painting. I also have a Baron Zemo for the lower arms and legs (will require paint-but yellow on gold is better than yellow on a darker color -of course the purple will need to be paint matched green). The head is coming from a custom sculpt made by Rodimus -who is also sending me the yellow Vision cape in my recent order-too bad I didn't wait for his black friday promotion-but his sculpts are HIGHLY recommended.
  12. You can. I haven't done it too many times, but I have read about other people damaging torsos more than once. Here's a pic of the joint: Thanks Dressel. Good to know. You may have just saved me the annoyance of painting the torso.
  13. Is there a way to safely remove the middle torso from a figure without damaging it? Could I boil and pop this as I would the legs and arms? I know that with the modern Joes the torsos can be cracked and separated, but I don't think this is the case with the MU figs, Thanks
  14. Check the Disney Stores. I found one there, although that was prior to the movie release.
  15. Exactly! Thank you for saying in a few words that which took me far too many to get to-lol. I wish they could get their act together over there. Perhaps they should just pack a physical manifest with all of the bar codes and the quantites within the shipping manifest so that they can scan everything on paper and then open the box. Otherwise they lazily just scan the first fig add the quantity of the figures and not the others. With no regard to the details that the figures are all different. Meaning no new figures for me. Ughhh, guess the $10 dollar discount I received wil be used for an online distributor when there are no more figs here. .
  16. Managed to pick up an Astonishing Wolverine; extra Nova (for trade); and a Red Hulk (wish it were the same as the three pack) at a TRU. Then went to a Walmart Friday afternoon and found Red Skull; Black Widow; and Falcon from the Avengers Assemble Line. The Lady would only sell the Red Skull to me, since the others were not found in their scanners (she said "They must be new, because they aren't showing in the system.") So she tossed them on the shelf behind her until they could scan them - I assumed Sunday, but I went back Saturday to pick something up that I forgot to get and she scanned them = again not in the system. So she got the manager and he put them into the system. I paid, and left after my half hour price ordeal only to realize then that the they set the price as the $5 Avenger figs NOT the $10 figs. I thought about going back, but realized that I have spent way too much time this weekend at Walmart. Perhaps later in the week I will return. So Anyone still looking for a Nova?
  17. I saw that set there for $44.99, no shame in that man. It's a solid pickup. I agree. I did the same exact thing a few moments ago. I was quite disappointed by even the lack of communication/updates about this from BBTS who are historically one of the first to receive and ship orders of MU- to not even get the charged for this when preorders were made in April and these have been showing up at retail was very disconcerning. I am hoping to get my order in from Smalljoes this week and then give BBTS another chance with the next wave is released ...or not.
  18. Where are you located, this sounds a lot like my TRU? Myrtle Beach SC. You?
  19. Arrived at a TRU in town to find the Black Spidey; Silver Surfer; and Iron Spider. Much as is the case at my local, and only TRU - the new figures were not on the floor. I have not found a new desired figure in the wild at this store in as long as I can remember. Oh well. This is why I have decided to just preorder these figures from online e-tailers. Better to buy from them then to feed the ebay scalpers. It would be nice to have distribution that put more than one new figure on the pegs!!!
  20. Yeah Jason 1551, I also have the twenty dollar groupon to use by the 23rd. I am thinking if nothing new appears, I may finally buy the X-factor set or more likely I am going to help out Santa and get the remote control Umizoomi car for my daughter. I find that every time I buy these Groupons with the intent to add to my hobby I always end up finding things for my daughter (not complaining, I am fortunate to be able to do so, I just feel weird/cheap buying stuff for myself but using coupons for her)
  21. Someone correct me if I'm wrong, but that sounds like the revision case that included Beast, New Sculpt Hulk, Kraven, and Beta Ray Bill. It didn't have any of the Professor X wave included. I think it's a safe bet that you haven't missed out yet. Personally, I have only seen the Professor X wave show up once, and that was at Walmart. Have there been sighting at other retailers? Phew. I hope you are correct, I saw the half emptied pegs and the Surfer and was certain that I'd missed out. Earlier in this thread (1-2 pages ago) Prof x and Jubilee were reported sighted at TRU.
  22. I just returned from our lone TRU where I saw a single pack of the silver surfer, black costume spider man; 3 FF Spiderman's (not baghead); iron patriot; iron spiderman; scarlet spiderman. I missed out on the Prof X and Jubilee didn't I? I am so frustrated. We see nothing, our Walmarts are empty and then news hits that TRU is receiving these and then boom, they hit while I am working and I go out of my way to check just to see the remnants of scalpers or other collectors. Even with two to a pack, there just doesn't seem to be enough of the new figures to meet demand. The retailers and Hasbro really need to figure out how to make these figures more readily available. They are losing fans such as myself who are feeling that the hassle is just not worth our valuable time any longer. Hasbro is creating the secondary market price mark ups with their limited packing of new figures and repacks of random figs, coupled with the retailers not ordering or ordering one box of product, this creates a scenario where it is near impossible to find the product that you seek. UGHHHHHH.
  23. I want to quickly thank Mandroid for offering up and sending off a Scarlet Witch figure to me last week. Not only did he sell her to me for cost, but he worked with me to keep the shipping down to a minimum and yet it was an extremely fast delivery (which I never can figure out how ebay sellers send things off and they take forever to arrive, but when someone from the boards here sends something, it arrives within 2-3 days-go figure). Anyways, thanks again brother. She looks great with Hawkeye, Hulk, Cap, and Iron Man (yet creepy next to Quicksilver).
  24. Tomorrow, there is a chance that I can pick up a Marvel Kang; Kraven; Beast (right side up); new Hulk; FF Spiderman; Beta Ray Bill. If anyone is looking for these figures please PM me tonight. I would really like to trade: I am looking for the following: -She Hulk -Prof Xavier -Jubilee -Vision Or we could work something else out.
