    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.

    Has anyone got there Black Tom? Trying to figure out if mine got lost in the mail or if the weather is wreaking havoc on the postal service.

    wave 74

    Wow! That's a perfect match. Thanks for the picture.

    wave 74

    Would anyone be able to try something for me? Would some body that has the Surtur and Magma figures be able to tell me how close the two are in color? Been thinking about hunting down the Surtur set to use the crotch piece to make Magma more... magma'y but not sure if the color will be way off or not.

    TRU Series 26

    Thanks for the answer Zach! I know it's got to be tough with the uncertainty of the situation with TRU in general. Appreciate the response.

    TRU Series 26

    So with the news now official... It begs the question, what becomes of this series specifically? Future sets are out but these were far enough along that there was sample figures made at the very least already. Guess best case. it gets canceled and shows up at specialty? Worst case it goes the way of the Ghost Rider movie wave... Any insight you are able to give at this time Zach?

    Of course it would be a mate that's older and hard to come by at this point... I've found the tall hair from the crazy 88 box set works ok, if like me you don't have a gozer.

    got my Calisto today and it's amazing! Really just a perfect mate. The work on the sleeves and face is especially great. With it was the clue April... "A villain that originally appeared in issues of Daredevil in the 80's but has since appeared in Wolverine, thunderbolts, and Captain America. He has been made as a Marvel legends figure." I know nothing about Legends figures or Daredevil, so let the guessing commence!
