    No need to be kind... By all means, spoil away for us who didn't get Stature or missed out.

    Sorry meant for the base to hold the wings. Sorry that was so confusing. The base that the wings attach to is black and yellow and will hold the insect wings he's using perfectly.

    If you are willing to paint some small bits here and there: For the gloves and boots, Ultimate Nova and paint a couple small black stripes on the gauntlets. Hair and googles, painting a trimmed Pyro head would probably be best. For the Wings I'd use Angel from the X-Men First Class box set.

    Wow! Those look great. What parts did you use for that Nate Grey? Looks like a lot of repainting.

    If it's Starjammers/Royal Guard give me at least one male and one female Shiar for army building (D'Ken and Lilandra?), Gladiator, Deathbird, Fang (with alt Wolverine head), Corsair, Cho'd, and Vulcan. I'll buy at least two full sets and probably 3 or 4 more two packs of the army builders...

    Been thinking a new thread for that may be in order? Keep a separate list of what people have and what people are looking for?

    Over in the SDCC 2018 thread Zach acknowledged the issues Walgreens has had with all waves sharing a SKU and seemed to imply that they are working on getting mates available on the website. That said it sounds like it may also take time as Walgreens just bought rite aid stores and is working on improving their website.

    It's an alternate universe story involving a version of the Avengers in 1,000,000 BC... The main Avengers are here: And the big purple robot is a Celestial that they fight in the story. So basically alternate versions of Thor, Ghost rider, Dr. Strange, Iron Fist, Phoenix, Hulk, and Panther with a Celestial.

    It would seem so. The BC, Strange and Ghost Rider sets, and Hammerhead all seem to have come from no where... Like it's been months since we've heard anything regarding sets after wave 76 (out in october) and now here's two new waves boxed and looking ready to hit shelves... Just seems very odd that there's been nearly no info for months and then two Infinity War waves and these that just pop up ready to ship.

    What do you use for utility boxes out of curiosity? I use these right now but am always looking for a better option: Plano Storage Bin

    Realized I missed a couple when I was going through what I had posted. Here's Primal from Generation Hope: Current-ish Quentin Quire: Grown-up Layla Miller: And to round out my Excalibur/Exiles teams Pete Wisdom and Nocturne:

    So I alluded to a project I had been working on and I've hit a wall when it comes to decals... I just can't seem to make my own and get them looking good. I've made it this far on my New X-men team: But I'm simply defeated on decals for Anole, and Rockslides faces. Dust too could use more feminine and sympathetic looking eyes than the ones I'm currently using. I also have Elixer and Mercury parts but need to paint them and again would need decals or stickers for the faces. But yeah decals, can anyone help out or point me in the right direction and get me started

    Yep, Nova body, helmet is from First Class Angel boxset, and the gloves and boots are spare parts from the First class boxset and Strike Force wave.

    Finally got some spare time work on a few things and decided to take some photos... First up is just a small change to Shadowcat (Sue Storm hand and foot added) and a kit bashed Colossus using parts from all the previous waves to make him more bulky, but not Hulk size. Next is some villains, Tempo, Henry Peter Gyrich, Sebastian Shaw (pretty sure I stole the recipe from someone here a few years ago,) Reverend William Stryker. Still have to paint an Iron Man gauntlet for his Hand of Nimrod. Sometimes I like updating and altering costumes to fit pieces I have and to make them a bit more interesting. So my not quite accurate versions of Sway and Darwin. Sway's comic costume always bugged me with the absurd "boob window" so I got rid of that and decided to put the emphasis on the wrists instead since that's the source of her powers. Darwin gets an old Iceman head and hands mostly because he's always pale in the comics and mostly because I had like 5 spare Iceman heads from a project I'll have pics of later.
