  1. I also picked this up today. Definitely a pretty cool repaint. I passed on the original ROC version, but the color scheme on this one really makes for a cool stand-out Cobra vehicle. The Star Viper is pretty "meh" but I've got a couple of Cobra pilots that would be more than happy to take his spot. For the most part the stickers make this one pop. Apart from a couple of them, the placement and style make sense and they're not lazy at all like some of the other modern releases of the past. Now, one question I have is: what the heck are the front-most two buttons? One does a wild electronic chirping sound and the other is incoherent babbling. I can't make out what it's saying. I don't know if I have a defecting one or if they're all like that.
  2. Head = SW Jeremoch Colton Base Body = XMO Lumberjack Logan Feet = ROC Snake Eyes Pistol = Either 25th or ROC Radio = Probably bbi Briefcase = BnB Razor Ramon Holster = Playmates Star Trek
  3. The BnB ankles are too skinny for the Turtles' typical build, so I decided to experiment. For larger ankles I yanked the lower arms from a Serpentor, plugged the hands into the elbow peg, and then chopped off the forearm right below the hinge, and then the hand right at the peg. Sounds weird, but check the WIP pic for what the heck I'm trying to explain: I then (after my Dremel was back up) hollowed out the foot to accept the piece of hand so that the feet would be able to function like a 25th Joe foot, only with the swivel below the hinge instead of above [see above pic]. The rest was just sculpting and painting. He did have articulation in his waist up until I did the belt. I couldn't find a stretchy material that was the right width, so I ended up using a folded piece of box tape. The articulation is still there, but the tape doesn't give like rubber or soft plastic. Recipe: Base body = any BnB wrestler Head, feet = TMNT Mini Mutants Scabbards = ROC Storm Shadow, modified to fit two long swords Swords = 25th Storm Shadow
  4. This is something I've wanted to tackle for a few years now, especially since the Mini Mutant Turtles came out. I had a few extra Turtles lying around from buying multiple packs for the different baddies, and my Dremel was out of commission for a few days, so I figured I'd get on it since I couldn't work on my NJC figures. Vanilla pose I could have gotten the kick higher Good range in the head. You can't really tell from the angle, but he's looking down quite a bit Showing off the ankle articulation Height comparison. He's right at 3.75", so perfect height for today's 4"ers
  5. I grabbed a couple of CW figures I've been eyeballing for a while now. The ARF trooper has already been parted out to customize or upgrade other figures(Bacara with articulated wrists for the win).
  6. Marshal's, TJ Maxx, and I think Ross were getting the Wraith wave, and a few variants were spotted in the mix. It seems Big Lots is only getting the Trakker wave.
  7. Yep, 3.75", 1:18th, and 4" depending on which line and who you talk to Thanks a lot!
  8. A couple more pics: Scaling a tower In hiding
  9. This is one that I've seriously had on my table for about two years. I gave up on him due to moving and losing interest, or "moto." Especially with having to make templates for the softgoods parts. Finally, after getting back into the groove lately, he's finished. And better than before, as his bracer blade is functional now. Bracer blade extended Head = Will Turner Torso/ upper arms = Stinger Driver Lower arms = ROC Storm Shadow Right hand = Probably Indiana Jones Legs = Red Ninja Sword = Joe DVD pack, modified Short sword = POTC, modified Bracer mechanism and blade = Arctic Storm Shadow, modified As mentioned above, the bracer blade is functional. Something I really tried to do initially but could not accomplish until the ROC Stormy came out. It, along with the softgoods, give it a nice "toy" feel.
  10. The running Yoshi is actually the key chain version. I got all excited too this morning when I came around the corner of the aisle and saw one on the peg. But, it's actually a pretty good size, and the chain should come easily if it's anything like the Toad one, which I bought to go with my Mario PVC's. Back to Sonic - I finally found Silver today. I spotted the Metal Sonic packs, but passed for now. Hopefully they'll put Metal in a single pack some time in the future, as I don't need a fourth Sonic.
  11. MUNDO

    Cheetara

    One step closer to completing the whole crew. Base body = Ms. Marvel Left hand = Scarlett Staff = Storm Shadow
  12. In Deep 6's defense, the SHARC is a sub and is not supposed to float. The new Moccasin actually floats 100 times better than the original, which maybe stayed afloat for a few seconds. The Whale did a good job of staying afloat, but would take in water slowly, especially with movement. I think the winner would be the Morey though.
  13. It is new. It's never been opened, it isn't his fault that they made the mistake. It doesn't look broken to me. It looks like his hand slipped off the handle grip.
  14. Alley Viper: Not too bad. Beach Head: Awesome. Actually beats out the comic pack version in my opinion. Cobra Commander: Works as an exclusive. Destro: Awesome. It looks like he's got snow on his mask though. I hope it's not on the final product. Duke: Pretty neat figure. I might have to make him into Tunnel Rat though, after a head swap. Dusty: A little busy, but still cool. Firefly: I really like it. I'm getting a big Metal Gear/Sigma Six vibe from all these figures, and I like that. Jungle Viper: I think that huge apparatus is some sort of tech-camo shroud rather than wings. Recondo: Looks good. I can already see Hasbro re-using him for Gung Ho though. Snake Eyes and Timber: I like this Snake Eyes. Not too busy, but well-equipped. It looks like Timber has an articulated head. Techy Snake Eyes: Not feeling this one. Snow Job: Awesome. I can't wait to get him. One of my favorite Joes. Prince of Persia Storm Shadow: Kind of neat, but I don't like the head. Zartan: Not feeling this one either. Overall, I'm loving how we're getting different environment-specific figures. I don't know if they're going to split the theme up into waves, or mix them in.
  15. I totally forgot about the Target deal. I literally just got home from there too. I would have grabbed a couple of Vipers and an extra Heavy Duty. All the Wal-Marts here have loads of Destros and Vipers, with maybe one other figure mixed in.
