  1. I was hugely into the XMen and Fantastuic Four when I was young. I remember turning my Masters of the universe into Xmen (I painted He man Silver as colussus, Teela had a white stripe in her hair as Rogue and I made Zodiac Wolverine Claws). I was depserate for X Men figures!! I always kept my eye on the Comics but resisted the temptation to buy any ML's, even though I saw them in the shops and loved 'em! Then I got bought the XMen trilogy on DVD, although I had seen them at the cinema, I enjoyed them more on DVD. ON the afternoon after watching X3, I went to Woolworths and there was a lone Shadowcat figure on the shelves, reduced! I bought her and then wehen I got home, I decided to pay a visit to Forbidden Planet, that afternoon and bought Iceman, Beast and Nightcrawler. I vowed not to buy anymore but the next week I found myself at Toyrs R Us where they were selling X figures for £2.99 and bought Wolverine, Colussus, Cyclops, Storm, Juggernaught, Angel, and Gambit! i was then hooked and the rest followed!
  2. I really like Wolfsbane, although she is smaller, it doesn't matter cos she is crouched.
  3. I have wolfsbane and Warlock from the new Mutants line and they work but the Magik figure didn't so I used her accessories for a custom
  4. Mirage - Sunspot - Wolfsbane -Karma - Magma - Magik Spot my theme
  5. Cannonball, Colussus, Cable , Magik Deadpool, Warlock, Domino, Sunspot, Wolsbane
  6. Cyclops, Marvel Girl, Phoenix Havok, Nightcrawler, Professor X, Storm, Angel, Rogue, Gambit, Shadowcat and Emma Frost Wolverine, Iceman , Sabretooth
  7. I updated my collection with a couple of new editions; Banshee, Juggernaught, Jubilee Beast, Bishop, X-23 Psylocke, Xorn, Longshot
  8. [see I only collect X Men and to be honest I probably wouldn;t buy new versions of the figures. I only like to have one version of each figure, so i guess it would put me in a quandry. I really want Polaris and i would love the New Mutants but I am happy with my X Men
  9. Thanks - see I was a coward with Sunspot, I picked him up for £2.00 in a sale. So it was kind of like a no lose situation that I thought I would try. The photo has picked up the difference between the paint on wonderman and the black paint I used but actually in reality it doesn't look that different. I really wanted the boots and and belt but was a bit scared to go with it with the paint! After doing Magik, I feel a bit more confident and I am sure I will improve! It's one of those things you really want it to look good but I found it really difficult to, as I have never painted anything before!! I will probably repaint Sunspot over the weekend, as I feel a bit more confident now. I bought the New Mutants figures and although Wolfsbane and warlock were good, the Magik figure was awful and looked terrible with my ML X-Men. So I used the skirt, headress and boots from that. I hate the Black Widows neck but the hair and the costume worked. I found figurerealm last week and had my heart set on doing a custom, even if it was bad!! Some of the customs are amazing, so I hop with practise I can improve but I don;t think would ever be able to do anything to intricate!
  10. I would like New Mutants, I guess but then I have forked out for Cannonball and Domino so I would hate to get him again, which would be the downside for me
  11. I have been looking at people's customs here and other places and I decided I would try to create two of the New Mutants. It's bloody hard Obviously you want them to look professional but I am sure practise will help! I need to take more time but when I started I wanted them finished!! Anyway - don't laugh, be kind! Magik
  12. Hi I have posted before but have added some figures. I have Marvel Girl and Deathpool on their way but I fancied taking some pics. I also thought I would try and Customise as well - first time I have ever done naything like it - and I need practise!! Respect to all those people who are great at it! I will try and do some others tho, as practise makes perfect and I enjoyed doing it! My problem was I couldn't be bothered to wait and wanted them finished NOW as I was painting but I now have a Sunspot and Magik (A bad Sunspot and Magik but mine all the same!)
  13. Is that Warlock I see between Cable and Domino? Yeah! Heh neat, I had forgotten that the New Mutants figs even existed. Wolfsbane is on the right. I am waiting for Magik to arrive. Once I get the figures I have ordered I will take some closer pictures and post them. So far I have; Bashee, Juggernaught, X-23, Psylocke, Bishop, Beast, Xorn, Longshot, Phoenix, Sabretooth, Havok, Nightcrawler, professor X, Storm, Angel, Shadowcat, Wolverine, White Queen, Iceman, Rogue, Gambit, Colussus, Cannonball, Cable, Warlock, Domino and Wolfsbane. Not bad for a couple months work. A few more to come. I was really into the Xmen and have started collecting again years later!
  14. Is that Warlock I see between Cable and Domino? Yeah!

    she hulk...

    Thanks mate - I had seen that but to be honest I don't like the face on the other SH. I prefer the SDCC as she is not pulling an inane grin and actually looks better that the other one. Although i prefer the hair on the other. I apreciate the tip tho
  16. Aww I thought so! I missed the comics too P.s How do I get a signature on here?? Found out!

  18. Aww I thought so! I missed the comics too
  19. I have read so many opinions about the change from Toybiz to Hasbro and as a forum newbie and someone that has just really started my collection (thank heavens for Ebay!) I worked why the line changed? Can anyone tell me
  20. I can't wait until I get some figures I have ordered to update my X-men shelf. I really like seeing every ones collections!

    she hulk...

    I love the SDCC She Hulk, I wish she had had her hair down as she never had it up in FF. She looks great with the FF Figures frokm the Ronan Series. I have She Hulk, Invisable Woman, Mr Fantastic and the Human Torch on my desk in work. I have an older figure of the Thing as I didn;t like the colouring, I have seen of the Thing. everyone else has teddies on their desk at work so I decided I would have the Fantastic 4+1. I have the X-men at home!
