  1. If you click on his name, the panels that talk about it and the issue # are right there. If you click the picture, it gets bigger and you can read the panels. Personally, I'm of the mind that it was meant to be more of a gag than anything else, and I question how canon Marvel Knights Spider-Man really is, but yes, he does state it pretty clearly. Cool, cheers for the Knights explanation. I'll be honest, I don't follow Spidey as much as I do the X-Families but I did know who Electro is which is what got me interested. With only having 1 anel to go off, I wasn't sure if it was alterniverse stuff like Ultimate Colossus or not. That and it didn't seem to have much explanation around the Electro entry than the others. The only reason I found some of the listed names a bit far fetched were the cases given to a few of them, like body swapping etc. Was interesting to read up on characters I'd only ever heard of like Phyla-Vell and Triathlon though
  2. wait, honk kong makes a lot of fake shoes and other bootleg stuff. so is it possible to make fake figures? its happened twice that i purchased kang and the destroyer (iron man variant) on e-bay for a cheap price (under 15 dollars) and they both came from hong kong. recently i saw a dragon man on buy it now for like 20 dollars without the wings, and they had like 5 of these available. so is it possible they make fakes? Some of the stuff sold are prototypes usually without the colouring and just plain plastic, but I actually had Kang, Invisible Woman (the Ultimate one from the FF4 Classics) and Dragon Man sans the wings for about £15 with postage already included. Granted they didn't gome with accessories like the cannon (can live without), force feilds (made my own with a glue gun) or wings (getting Annihilus ones to replace) but I don't keep them moc and they're 100% real, paints, stamps and all! I agree that it sucks with figures like Crimson Dawn Psylocke, XMC Rogue green and yellow, Blue Wasp etc when Toybiz ran out of time to do the running changes, but we've been told by Hasbro that they are going to distribute the icons that were announced probably as exclusives so I'd just laugh at the daft bugger paying $200 for a figure that will be available in a year.
  3. Woah, scary Steven Seagall moment on that 3rd pic lol - thanks for the post!
  4. I've not actually seen any stills or clips for this movie yet, are there any about? I've got the ML6 Tom Jane Punisher and besides the weird temples he's pretty cool for a guy in a T-Shirt and leather pants I like the movie figures (ducks a punch) so if done better then Hulk I'd go for some extra characters.
  5. Agreed on the Cable front, WTF?!?! Like having Sabretooth a clawed wonder wasn't bad enough now they had to dilute more characters witht e Wolveriness. I had heard 616 Cable was originally intended to be a time travelling Cannonball when he first appeared but they scrapped the idea. Shoulda taken heed! To be honest, I like having the odd set of matching uniforms like Ultimates, but I'd rather see New Mutants, FA X-Men, the very early Jim Lee blue and Golds like the upcoming Forge and Wolvie or even Generation X for some new characters before we start repainting all the figures black and yellow! As for the whole gay heroes thing, 1 - it's only decent if it's done from the start and approached realistically like Northstar and even Ultimate Colossus, but the ones that 'turn' are just for shock value @grumpy@ 2 - I NEVER knew that about Electro, is this just speculation? well considering that Elektra an assasin and one of the way to do thing is to get close to the person, yeah i could see Elektra being a bi-sexual. It had on that link that Electro (spidey villain, funky mask) has tendancie too. But looking through some of the other 'suggestions' on the link, I doubt there's much proof in it...
  6. I actually thought this was a pi$$ take until I saw this on Wiki and THAT promo art... "Marvel Apes was first suggested as a successor to Marvel Zombies by a fan during a convention Q&A session with Joe Quesada.[2] As with Marvel Zombies before it, Marvel Apes takes place in an alternate universe, in this case one populated with simian versions of popular Marvel Superheroes. As with the introduction of Marvel Zombies in the pages of Ultimate Fantastic Four, the Marvel Apes universe will be visited by an existing Marvel character, in this case Martin Blank aka Gibbon.[3] He will be accompanied by a a female scientist named Fiona Fitzhugh in what has been described by Kesel as a "Lord of the Rings style sprawling epic"." Let the madness begin... you filthy apes...

  8. Cool WIP pics - and that Silver Samurai looks pretty fierce too! If he's supposed to be Giant Man size I guess we can rule out getting a decent BAF of him then.
  9. I voted FO - they are both excellent representations but the body is a little too loose on ML5 and as mentioned, daddy needs more fur That and I'm a sucker for the Mutant Massacre
  10. I have him sans wings to tie me over till I find a bargain but that Pitt creation is wicked! If you could ge BA to cast you the head, it's pretty big anyhoo. To be honest the only thing I've read with him in was that Red Ghost issue the X-Men and Black Panther had in it so probably not the best to go off lol
  11. Glad you like the Rogue! I agree though, I'd prefer to see more characters who haven't been made yet. Maybe leave the Ultimates to the inevitable resurection of the X-Men line, especially if it falls near to the release of Ultimate Alliance 2.
  12. As promised, here's a quick update with a newer better scaled Strong Guy
  13. Well I'll be posting my Jim Lee X-Men as soon as Rogue is finished along with my New Mutants and Outback X-Men. Still plenty more to be photographed and grouped my friend, but thanks for the compliments
  14. Hey billmaru - yup that Random gun are pieces of the snap on extentions Mr Fantastic stuck together. Finally found a use for em! I'd done a few more freal versions of Rahne but this is my favourite set around the time of Legion Quest. Memories
  15. Cheers Hellion, glad you like! I'll have to post up my modern X-Men with Warpath same as your avatar
  16. Forge Random Brotherhood Havok... ...and another Group BTW, Guido is currently being redone with a Juggy as he's waaaaay too small on this one
  17. This group is a lot more recent as most of the characters are 2nd or 3rd editions I've done. Havok Polaris Madrox Wolfsbane Strong Guy
  18. Thanks guys they're one of my favourite teams too being from Blighty and all Billmaru - I sculpted the feet over a sanded down pair of Psylockes. I was gonna use weapon X feet but used them in my AoA customs on Wild Child. Kitty is a FF4 Movie Jessica Alba, the released Kitty Pryde head and baloons for the sleeves so they're still fully posable. I've had her comissioned about 5 times now so this is the original one I did! Gonna post up my X-Factor and New Mutants later today guys and gals.
  19. Thanks guys! These were some of my earliest work so not as neat as some of the later stuff. Those recipes you gave Dedz are near enough there - the Penance hair are actually elastic bands layered on top of eachother. I'm in the process of scalping a Blackheart though for an update Looking forward to seeing your stuff too
  20. Cool - I just saw this on the Realm. You should have submitted it for this months comp. Wicked custon dude
  21. Chamber Husk Banshee Penance Group
  22. These ones were done before I really started geting into customising so be gentle @loll@ Emma Frost Synch Jubilee Skin M
  23. Another post, another team line up. This time, it's Excalibur! Nightcrawler Shadowcat Phoenix II Meggan
  24. Gah, now I've noticed his baby hands I'll have to do a similar job. *Shakes fist in billmaru's direction*
