  1. The thing that really irks me with those Iron Man Iron Monger figures is that the scale is way off. I went ahead and found an old 1:18 Iron Man from Hasbro's 2008 Iron Man line to display with that "1:12" Iron Monger. Much better scale, but I'd really like a properly scaled 1:12 to go with the rest of my MCU Legends.
  2. Haha, yeah that was basically my line of thought, too. Regardless, I wouldn't mind Hasbro releasing a Random figure.
  3. I just updated my list. If you're interested in anything listed above, please send me a message. Thanks!
  4. Should Random be on the Government X-Factor list?
  5. It's been a while since I've logged on, so I'm only just now seeing your post. I've got the Cull Obsidian arm if you still need it.
  6. What do you think is the likelihood of the one figure with both classic (Donald Blake) and Erik Masterson heads? Eh, probably highly unlikely. It'd be a great move on Hasbro's part though, like the two Hobgoblin head sculpts.
  7. BBTS has Cap-wolf on sale. I buckled and bought him. I was so excited to finally have a comic Cap to display. My figure shipped earlier this week; presently en route to my house. Yay! Then I wake up today to Toyfair news. Hahaha, I'm not patient enough for this hobby. On that note, anyone interested in a NIP Cap-wolf? Willing to sell or trade! ;)
  8. Can't remember where I read it, but I read Friday, 22 February. Any way, it looks like the consensus is before the end of this month.
  9. MCU Happy Hogan Justin Hammer Obadiah Stane Comics Alicia Masters Rick Jones Gwen Stacy
  10. Yeah, you're right. The only upcoming Walgreens Exclusives I can think of (Mystique and Emma Frost) are X-Men. GIMME DOCTOR DOOM!
  11. Man, that's some clean customization. Very impressive. Great figure!
  12. What's the likelihood of Hasbro making figures of supporting characters? The only two who come to mind are Netflix's Claire Temple and Mary Jane Watson, both figures were packaged in two-packs. I'd like to see more of Spider-Man's cast, but it's tricky to figure out who Hasbro could potentially pair non-super heroes with. A re-issue of Hobgoblin with an alternate Ned Leeds head packaged with Betty Brant Flash Thompson packaged with a re-issued Agent Venom Robbie Robertson packed with Tombstone I'm eagerly awaiting the announcement for the next Walgreens Exclusive Fantastic Four figure. It has to be Doctor Doom, doesn't it? And I suppose the only chance we'll get an Alicia Masters would be in a two-pack. Maybe with a FF uniformed Johnny Storm?
  13. I was just watching some process videos on Punker_Mike's YouTube channel for a few of his custom figures. He uses citadel paints, too. Do you mind if I ask where you got that brand?
  14. I also have for sale or trade the following: Marvel Legends Avengers: Age of Ultron Iron Man Mark 43: loose, complete, no BAF piece Marvel Legends Target Exclusive Infinity War Iron Man Mark 50*: loose, complete Hasbro 2012 Walmart Exclusive Avengers Captain America: loose, complete Marvel Legends Civil War Captain America: loose, complete, no BAF piece Hasbro 2012 Walmart Exclusive Avengers Thor: loose, complete Marvel Legends Amazon Exclusive Avengers: Age of Ultron Thor: loose, incomplete The following figures are still sealed, brand new, in their respective packages: Marvel Legends Sabertooth (Apocalypse BAF) Marvel Legends Captain America (Red Skull BAF) Marvel Legends Walgreens Exclusive Emma Frost *Iron Man Mark 50 figure has never been removed from its plastic retail shell, but DOES NOT INCLUDE Iron Spider
  15. We can only hope that if/when Hasbro releases this version of Storm that the figure looks half this good. Amazing job!
  16. Hmm, I've yet to encounter this problem with my jars of paint. I've only owned them for a few months, though. During which time I've probably only dipped into each jar once, definitely no more than twice. Maybe you could fill a dropper with some isopropyl alcohol and squeeze a few drops around the base of the caps while the jar is upside-down? Let the alcohol work its way in and try to turn the caps then. Or brush some acetone under the edge of caps and try to work them loose? If the caps to my paint jars ever seize up and I manage to work them loose, I'll post my method here. Good luck!
  17. Robb, with your experience can you think of any ways to make this system more reliable for anyone who wants to participate? The only concerns that have come to mind for me are recipients unwilling to pay (as you mentioned) or senders collecting money but never shipping the figure. I suppose that makes accountability my main concern with this proposed process.
  18. Yeah! I saw your response to one of my posts regarding this, Benn; stoked that you took the initiative! I don't know how you feel about online shopping, but it looks like Amazon currently has the Underwear Deadpool in stock for $19.98. I'll keep an eye out locally for the figures on your list. Off the top of my head, here's a rough inventory of what I know is currently available in my area: MCU Thanos BAF Wave Proxima Midnight Walgreens Exclusive Mr. Fantastic Walgreens Exclusive Daredevil Most MCU Captain Marvel Wave figures Sauron BAF Wave Gwenpool I'll make a more thorough list on my next visit to my local stores.
  19. Here is a list of Build-A-Figure parts in my possession that I have no intention of ever using. I'm willing to trade or sell them. If you're interested in anything listed below, please send me a message. Thanks!

  20. Is there a thread that discusses trading in depth? There's currently one questionable (in my opinion) thread on the Buy-Sell-Trade forum. I'm sorry to iterate topics that I'm positive have previously been discussed at great length, but I'm very new to this forum. I know we're all sick of scalpers and the lack of variety in selection or the lack of current waves in most of our local brick-and-mortar retailers. I've posted elsewhere in another thread that I'm totally open to mailing any figures that my local retailers have in abundance to those who cannot find them. I propose that this service is executed at cost, with the only additional expense to the recipient being the shipping cost. Has this practice ever been attempted by any members of this forum? Obviously there's the inherent potential of scammers being among us as well. I myself being new (and therefore not yet having had the opportunity to be burned) am very willing to attempt this with anyone who wants to give it a shot. I'm hoping I'm not violating any forum soliciting rules, or repeating a notion that has been presented and spectacularly failed. Contrarily, if this practice is already in effect to some degree of success, could anyone point me to the appropriate thread? Thanks!
  21. I'll wash them and try thinning my paint. I really appreciate the advice, Satam. Thanks for your input. Another issue that I've encountered is flaking of the paint (mostly at joints where moving parts make contact, but also on non-moving surfaces that make contact with external forces (i.e. the figure falling, a fingernail accidentally scratching the paint, etc). Is there a reliable "finishing" method of applying a clear coat or otherwise transparent protective surface?
