  1. I was going to go with December 34th since it's a Marvel reference, but it's just way too obscure since it requires watching a youtube video.
  2. I'd buy 6 each just to have extras... I honestly would just take one of the males and one of the females in a two pack and buy like 10 of them and make customs at this point.
  3. Combination of paint and thin sharpie marker. It was the Madame Masque body to start with and I used black acrylic paint to fill in the rest of the sides, blending as best as possible. Next once dry used an orange thin sharpie to add a single line next to the black, followed by a clear coat finish to prevent the orange from smudging. The arms are from a spare wave 41 Storm figure and I completely forget where the legs are from (sorry) but they are not painted other than i used the sharpie trick above on them. I think I got the legs from Luke in a spare parts sale. A quick search turns up the closest being the Domino legs from the X-Force box set but they are slightly different.
  4. Can’t take credit for that. Hellpop was the one that suggested it in the wave 81 thread. I tried the old Abomination head as well but the color is too hard to match to any other parts.
  5. Been working from home and recently found out I’m likely getting furloughed in a couple weeks. Decided do break out some old projects I had started long ago since I have the time to finish them. Some new customs: Agent Brand, Jamie Braddock, Monet, and a mostly finished Moira. Next up a bunch of projects that are getting close to finished: Kylun, just have to paint his mane and find some good swords. Skids, have to paint the jacket dark blue and she’s done. Cho’d put together based off a rough recipe from another thread. Need to strip the chest and redraw to give him his Michelin Man look. Danger, just need to make the chest more feminine and draw or paint a face on. AoA Wild Child, initial parts thrown together and just have to find a chest decal, and hair. Mellencamp, this one occurred to me to try when I was taking apart a Predator Hound figure to start painting silver for a Predator X figure. This just needs a face drawn on, sadly the chest piece from the Walgreens Prowler figure I used doesn’t fit with the head I used. My parts bin is a mess... found a couple other very early partial figures that I never got around to finishing. Eva Bell, a start on a Cerise mate, A partial Sage, Exiles Mimic that I never finished painting, and a mostly complete Shatter. Hopefully be finishing these up over the next few weeks.
  6. Absolutely! Right now my plan is to use the Iron Man 3 “Mandarin” body for his robed look. Just need to find some regular arms that match that body if possible. Sorry for the late reply, I was in Phoenix with family and didn’t see this until now.
  7. These couple waves are fantastic! Loving all the new figures we are getting and cleaning up gaps from recent waves (just need Morbius and Firestar from the Maximum Carnage wave!) Disappointed in the last two figures, but I can always use the spare parts and having two jackets for other customs will be great. Now that the Shi'ar hairpiece exists here's hoping we get an Emperor Vulcan Shi'ar wave or boxset(s) at some point to fill out the space stuff... Be nice to have Ch'od, Raza, Hepzibah, Fang Wolvie, D'ken, Vulcan, Deathbird to go along with this wave! Never mind on D'Ken, just realized now that some clevor parts use from a Kang, Mandarin, or others can get a pretty good quick custom.
  8. Dream Wave!!!!!! So I figure Wolverine Fang and D'Ken as the last two? Deathbird and maybe Korvus, or Ch'od? I'm hoping for at least a single Shiar hairpiece to make customs with since this is another multiple set purchase for me. I'd love Raza, and Hepzibah as well...
  9. Had an epiphany today messing with this wave. I forget who mentioned Husk and not having a way to show her powers... But an idea below. Probably don’t want to use all of these, but paint a few of them skin tone or red, yellow and they’d work great for Husk.
  10. My initial reaction was “no, can’t be”. But after a bit of thinking about it and looking through recent figures, I think they are new. The new part seems to be only the jagged ridges where the piece connects to the arm, but yeah new piece! It’s certainly not a piece that I have in my parts bin. Has anyone tried parts swapping to see how close color wise this Beast matches up with the 90s Beast figure? My 90s fig is buried in a parts bin in a closet and I haven’t gotten the chance to dig it out yet.
  11. Mine should be arriving tonight, got the email yesterday from Luke they had shipped and it takes about a day to get to me (I live about an hour south of him.) I'll try and post pics if no one else has when I get home tonight.
  12. It seems like it's been so long since these were announced that I can't remember how many sets I ordered from Luke... Going to be gr3at to have these in hand!
  13. I may be remembering incorrectly, but doesn’t Ayesha flat out say Adam’s name in the stinger at the end credits of Guardians 2? The cocoon in the first film was just an Easter egg, but there’s a 2nd metal cocoon that it shown in vol. 2 that is referred to as having “Adam” inside.
  14. Lol! This begs the question, if animated wave 10 was made, but never was released to stores, did it ever really happen?
  15. Tried that a couple times. This would be the third time I bought wave 6 to trigger a restock. So if anyone needs that wave let me know. I just keep hoping at some point they restock or put them on sale like they were awhile back. Was out of the country on vacation the last time the sale came around if I recall.
  16. https://www.deviantart.com/luke314pi/art/The-Warriors-Three-Custom-Minimates-296585012 Luke made them at one point. I remember seeing them on his site at one point, but that seems to be gone. His Deviant art page looks like it still has them though.
  17. Lol. The 2 Walgreens near me are still on wave 6... Had the BC Avengers wave show up, it got bought out and the store restocked with wave 6, which I already had. They’ve now been sitting on pegs for about 10 months. I’m not going to buy them, no one else seems to want to, so we are just stuck at an impasse. Useless product sits in the store and I’ll never see a different wave.
  18. This is my thoughts on this entire wave. They made a wave with the least iconic desires they could find, and are selling it as "Here's the cosmic wave you've been asking for!"
  19. So wave 11 is due in September but wave 10 (shown at SDCC last year) still hasn’t hit stores? Ok I’ll believe that when it happens... 😂
  20. Ugh saw this pop up the other day and immediately thought the Starjammers set had been announced. Think I’ll go have a cry now.
  21. Wouldn't that be a kick in the pants? Hey, here's a bunch of mates you have been wanting made for years... in their worst possible incarnation and the worst version of all the characters from the worst recent comic story they've been in... Enjoy! Annihilation, Conquest, Realm of Kings, and the like drew me back into comics after an over10 year absence. If these mates aren't from those stories, and it's the Bendis versions (which made me quit reading GotG)? I don't want them, and won't buy them. That's how strong my dislike of his run on that book is.
  22. Based off the clues I think USAgent is the “Captain America”. Is a fairly popular ask for a re-do and along with Wonderman or Spider Woman could fit the “highly requested” redos clues and the storyline. If it’s Operation Galactic Storm I’d say something like: USAgent - Crystal Wonderman - Mockingbird Black Knight - Hercules BaF - Quasar or Lilandra
  23. Either of these sound great! I always want X-themed waves but both those check enough boxes of the other stuff I collect that I'd be pleased. A few X-related characters mixed with other cool versions of mates we have.
  24. So if Bastion is June and July is an X-Villian from the 80s linked to June... That’s got to be William Stryker right? Debuted in 1983(?) and recently came into possession of Nimrod’s gauntlet before being killed, resurrected by Bastion and sent after Hope Summers. August I’m thinking Titania or Constrictor.
