I don't have them in hand, but they sure look close on MMDB.

I also have a question: does anyone know of green legs with brown "boot tops?" I know there are the Platoon mates, and first appearance Blade, but those all have shoelaces/details in front. i want pure brown. Does such an animal exist?

Depending on the shade of green you’re looking for Bring On the Bad Guys Red Skull is green with brown boots.

At some point I'll reveal the Q-ish C that I was working on, but it may be a bit. Another couple of sets have now jumped the line, and I'm excited by them. I have so little time to work on my customs these days that I tend to follow my whims, which just adds more and more time. 🤷‍♂️

Not that anyone could guess based on this, but before my next "wave" is done I need a Kingpin cigar hand, and I need to paint a couple fedoras.

My update here is that both the Yellowjacket and AIM torsos ended up looking a little too dark, and didn't stand up to the bright yellow of the Cyclops pelvis piece. All part of the process! I used my existing collection to test this, so thankfully no exorbitant AIM fees this time.

I happen to have a s**t ton of Moloids, and even though the color is less saturated, the yellow ended up pairing better. I'm not a fan of the wrinkled, anemic chest tampo, but the big plan will be to have the Colossus torso cap cover most of it anyway.

So... getting there. I have a cheap-ish V1 Colossus on order coming soon. I am using a First Class (comic) Angel bracket for the wings, and I'm guessing I'll have to trim it and glue it to the back of the Colossus cap.

Paint will entail blue for the belt, red for the trimmed edges of the Colossus cap, and yellow to cover the trimmed surfaces of the wing bracket.

Updating here that this is almost done, and looks good enough for rock 'n roll (in case anyone else would like to try it). Unfortunately I inadvertently spilled super glue juice on the head I was using, which ruined the decal. I'll post a pic once I acquire a replacement part, and add a little finishing paint.

Are there any other open/functional quivers with straps outside of Fear Itself Hawkeye?

I'm really not wanting to drop 20 bucks for a single part, but that seems to be the only listing on Ebay. I already used mine for Apache Kid, but now I'm working on another character that needs one.

I think that satchel is somewhere in Walking Dead as well. Glenn maybe? Or an early Rick. Either way, probably cheaper than getting it in that Deadpool set. 
 

EDIT. Officer Rick or the Days Gone Bye box set.

Moon Knight (1.0) is pretty pricey these days -- does he share his gloves with any other Minis? Alternately, are there other hands with knuckle spikes? I'm at a loss at the moment.

OK, real question this time:

Which characters have "boots" that are separate from their (standard) feet? Examples: AOA Apocalypse, Zombie Magneto. Basically, shin bracelets, but much wider than e.g. 90s Cyclops.

How big are you looking for? Like FoX-Men’s Juggernaut? Or like MCU Drax’s boots? Or like Ultimate Thor (which IIRC is the same as above Juggernaut).

The tricky part is that the boot bit needs to be separate from the feet. Because I'm planning on using standard feed. So really more like a large ankle cuff. 

Jackalman I realize has big cuffs, but they have ridges. Are there any others?

Star Trek TOS characters have a separate cuff piece.
