  1. The only heroes that fit the clue are yellow DD, black costume Electra, Comic Spider-Man 2099, and Patch. The only other possibilities would be a modern Blade or Ghost Rider depending on which incarnation Wave 6 Ghost Rider was based on.
  2. Found the Maximum Venom wave and wonder of wonders the web lines were perfect so I shouldn't complain. However the new animated wave was series 8, which was the first time it has shown up, but considering I'd already traded for three of the packs here and had to overpay for the fourth I wasn't really excited. The most discouraging part was that both stores restocked the Iron Spider/Spots AGAIN! Since they refuse to restock until everything is sold out I'm beyond frustrated at this considering I've already gotten at least 32 packs, and that's just counting the Iron Spider heads in my unsorted fodder case. It would be one thing is there was an occasional Cyclops or Iron Man pack but not just spot after spot after spot. It's actually gotten to the point where I'm wishing that the whole wave went the way of LCS wave 15 when TRU went down.
  3. The gun in the lower right corner and the bluish purple missile are from Transformers Energon Starscream.
  4. Thanks, Paco. Now that the contest is over I need to get Fury god of Thunder posted here along with his backstory blurb. Just to keep things complete. Yeah, but It's been a pain trying to get there before the Thanos/Iron man pack sells. They've restocked at least five times between the two stores and I've only found Thanos twice.
  5. I don't see why it wouldn't be possible using the NBX Jack Skellington body and perhaps use arms as legs. As for the head either a new sculpt or use the Leader's extra tall headpiece with a new "helmet/hair" piece the distinctive ears and pointy top.
  6. My newest creations, The Nubian Avengers, are a direct response to Luke's Alternate Universe Custom Contest so there is one more member of the team, but I won't be posting that one until after the contest. Still, after the first one I couldn't help creating a full team and this is the result. When Jerusalem fell to the Babylonian Empire the Nubian Empire rose once again. First expanding through Sub-Saharan Africa and then into the Congo, eventually controlling all the territory of South Africa. With the fall of Rome, Nubia invaded continental Europe. Eventually the great expansion ended when the Russo-Cathay Alliance stopped them at Bengal. With the known world accounted for the Age of Wars came to an end and the Age of Exploration began. Most explorers were European slaves. When the New World was first discovered many of the slaves rebelled joining the native tribes. Unfortunately the problems old world followed them and soon both South and North Americaans was controlled by Nubia to the eastern edge of the Great Mountains with the West controlled by the Cathay Alliance. Even now with the rise of super heroes the greatest battles are often the fight for civil rights and equality rather than with super villains. Captain Americaans is a symbol fueled by the faith and support of the Americaans people, most in the Alliance Free States. As long as there is hope for freedom and justice, he will remain one of the greatest Avengers and a hero to all the oppressed citizens of Earth. The worlds greatest spy is a reluctant member of the Avengers only joining the team after her "handlers" decided to have her "retired". Now she uses her unique skills to help slaves escape to freedom. A mutant slave taken by En Saba Nur and turned into one of his Horsemen, Warren, eventually broke free. Saddened by the loss of his biological wings and his actions as Archangel, he has taken on the new codename, Falcon. He can manifest either two or four energy wings. A product of the secret Weapon X Project, Cage was subjected to experiments that gave him invulnerability. However, they took his memories leaving only barely controlled berserker fury. King Bar'ton, is the leader of the hidden free nation of Wakanda. Gifted by the Goddess Bast with the powers of the panther. While the Avengers are based in his country he prefers to allow Captain America to lead the team. The Scarlet Witch was born with a mutant skill in telekinesis but as she grew into adolescence she discovered a talent for manipulating magic. Originally the Champion of the Northern Isles, Crusader Britain joined the Avengers in order to protect all humanity. Avengers: Endgame Captain Marvel: A quick custom to replicate Carol's Endgame look Iron Widow: Based on the Iron Spider suit, Pepper modified this suit for Natasha, unfortunately it wasn't delivered before their journey through Quantum Space. Since the end of the Infinity War there have been rare sightings of this new version of Black Widow. Infinity: An entity created by the Infinity Gems in order to protect them from continued tampering. Kuolema: One of the Daughters of Thanos, Kuolema claims that she is the only true daughter of the Titan, she claims she was born through the power of the Infinity Gauntlet, from Thanos and his consort, Death. One thing is for certain she brings death wherever she goes.
  7. Thanks, I only really get maybe a pack week just to keep the pegs clear for new product. I only pick up more when it is to complete a new wave. Of course the trade off is that I only order single sets of the LCS waves online. With the exception being when I can find then at clearance prices.
  8. It seems these are no longer web exclusive, at least not the Iron Spider/Spot sets. Both of the Stores that I frequent had four of each.
  9. The raccoon is a work in progress. I've been planning on doing a Furry Shield Agent. As soon as Animated wave 10 comes out I'm switching out for the more colorful head and tail. I also need to touch up the tie so that it matches the shirt, though I'm thinking I need to paint the tie itself to really make it pop.
  10. Don't know if it helps anyone but I keep all my 689 completed customs in Plano cases. This keeps them manageable and easily stored. It also makes it easier to keep track of in progress projects by giving them their own slot with a small scrap of paper listing the custom's name and the parts still needed to complete it. Then for good measure I take a picture of the completed custom, similar to Ivan's Minimate Database, and add it to a dedicated SD card just to be sure I don't loose track of who the character is supposed to be. Yes, I admit it, I am a complulsive organizer when it comes to my minimate collection.
  11. I do my best to keep the pegs clear in the two stores that I frequent and other than a partial wave two weeks ago, I missed the Iron Man & Thanos, the pegs have been empty. So I asked and the cashiers that have gotten to know me were confused because they haven't been receiving their usual toy shipments from the warehouse. She went on to say that they have a dedicated Marvel Legends and a Hot Wheels collector in with the same problem.
  12. Too bad the buyers from Walmart or Target don't jump on exclusive movie box sets in their "memorabilia/collectors" department timed for DVD/Blu-Ray releases. The box set would feature looks and characters that are integral to the film but couldn't be released in the concept based Walgreen and LCS sets.
  13. I'm really not bothered by Cap being in the Quantum Suit. Sure it would have been easy to do a QC, but really is the new suit that different than 100 other RW&B Caps? The same goes for Thor as long as he has a new Stormbreaker. Really as long as the last unknown characters are Quantum Suit Rocket and Armored Thanos with his sword I'm going to be happy with the wave even sight unseen.
  14. I' guessing that the Walgreen's set will likely be Cap/Thanos, Thor/Rocket (Quantum Suit), Iron Man/Black Widow, and Ronin/Rescue or other unexpected character. Considering that the Captain Marvel series will likely still be sharing peg space when the wave comes out putting her in Endgame packaging isn't going to do much to move more product.
  15. The problem is that the green paint from the upper leg got into the joint and dried locking it place. It took me a bit of very careful work with and exact-knife to free up the joint enough to get it to "break free" without breaking the peg.
  16. Inspired by Avengers BC I couldn't help but build up the roster with a few more members. Avengers BC by Prowl-Ar Nightiger, on Flickr Archer (Hawkeye) not only invented a new weapon for hunting but she has taken it to a new level since joining the Avengers. Brute (Beast) isn't at all what he seems. Gifted with great intelligence, strength, and dexterity he is constantly trying to prove that he is more valuable to the Avengers as a thinker than a fighter. Captain Marvel: A member of the first Kree expeditionary team to explore Earth. Captain Marvel was ordered to remain on the planet to observe until a full science team could arrive, however he decided on his own to interact with the alien species. Carnivore is a normal human encased in a living suit that is slowly consuming his sanity. While he is a member of the Avengers he really joined the team so that they could stop him if the alien ever gained complete control. Now for a few other customs: various heroes by Prowl-Ar Nightiger, on Flickr With so many people around the world vanishing the remnants of the U.S. Government scrambled to rebuild a super team. Arachnus, formerly known and the Prowler, and Electro were recruited for a special mission to travel into space in order to ascertain whether Iron Man had survived the vanishing. Arachnus is outfitted with a backup Iron Spider Suit while Electro, now a being of living electricity is given a Stark Industries designed contain containment suit allowing him to safely interact with the world around him. Not much is known about Valor his partner Scarlet Spider other than they hale from the future. The little that is known is that Valor is the son of Flash Thompson and it is speculated that his symbiote suit is either a future version of Venom or a spawn of the Venom suit. It has become rather obvious that they share a true symbiosis as the speak in the singular and when separated the suit shows no inclination of bonding with other subjects. The Scarlet Spider is Valor's guardian and mentor. A Life Model Decoy of Peter Parker the unit's technology is beyond that of all current LMDs. While the two do perform heroic deeds like most super powered heroes other actions have been observed that seem counter productive. It is theorized that these actions are meant to steer the future on a path that only they can foresee. Finally just for fun adding to my Marvel Swimsuit customs comes Black Panther, Out of the Shadows.
  17. Prowlar

    wave 77

    As much as I want Nightwatch I think Cardiac is more likely considering Sony is considering a Nightwatch movie and a Comic Nightwatch/Spider-Man wave would make more sense when and if that happens.
  18. Prowlar

    wave 77

    Let's see, characters that can use existing parts for a BAF. Prowler, Cardiac, Nightwatch, and The Rose. Characters that would need new parts that haven't been mentioned Man-Wolf and Stegron.
  19. Thanks, Shanester. I even have another five WIP's mainly as a filler to Avengers BC.
  20. Just to give an idea as to what I mean when I mention "fodder cases", Fodder Box Heads by Prowl-Ar Nightiger, on Flickr this is one of two cases devoted just to heads. ordinarily it would be a bit more organized but I've been reorganizing and dropped it sending heads all over the room.
  21. For Doomstar that just leaves the right arm from Spider-Man Noir and right hand from Vulture, and belt from Baron Zemo. For Guntigerthe Head is from Ultimate Agent Venom, Ifinity War Falcon goggles and guns, and IW Captain America Wakanda shield hands and belt. The waist is also from Sabertooth.
  22. Thanks, Captain Paco. I'd considered putting Hulk in that group however, since it is a look from the movie he gets to be put in the Movie mates section of my customs.
  23. Hot Tub Hulk is a combination of Thor: Ragnarok Gladiator Hulk and Infinity War wave 1 Hulk. I'm not sure with hulk donated the feet they were just the closest color match in the feet/boot fodder case. So to answer your question the crotch & legs are from Walgreen Gladiator Hulk.
  24. Finally got some new fodder and that means new customs. Hot Tub Hulk Sersi Doom Star Strange Guntiger by Prowl-Ar Nightiger, on Flickr First up is Hot Tub Hulk the Thor moviemate no one expected. Of curse next up is the Sersi quick custom nearly every likely has by now. Then a Doombot loaded with Captain Americas mind. I'd considered naming him Captain Latveria but I liked Doomstar more. Strange is a doctor of occult history and the daughter of current Dr. Strange and Clea. Gun Tiger is a placeholder WIP until I find a more tiger appropriate head.
