  1. I tend to agree that I should paint it but it is rather big and I've got 2 of them. So it's a big paint job. It may not turn out good. I've displayed my SMC figs on one of them and they look quite good.
  2. I got this from a local online seller here. Came over this auction by chance. I bought the 2 he had for NZD$15 <US$10> (for both). Great deal, I think. Each has space to stand approx 20 ML figs (conservatively). Need your opinion whether I should paint it or leave it as it is. It doesn't look too bad as it is, does it? What do you think?
  3. We have Woolworths here in New Zealand but they never have MLs. The last noticable thing they had was FF The Movie Series 1.
  4. Thanks for your responses. The reason I ask is because Select figures here in New Zealand are NZD $49-55 a pop. MLs are $17-20 ea. I will get Thanos and let you know how I find him. I can't be choosy about the paint apps as I'm buying on-line.
  5. Series 2 just hit NZ last week. Just got Juggy & HoM Wolvie.
  6. I'm thinking of getting Thanos. Is he worth it or shall I wait for the ML version (if ever)?
  7. That's cool! I didn't know that.
  8. Yeah, ML 12 unmasked Wolvie rocks.
  9. Got a question to you seasoned customisers out there... shall I dry brush a bit of white over the costume for it to look a bit worn or shall leave it as it is?
  10. It was from a Wizard mag & X-men Millenial Visions (2001). Here's a link to some of them... http://www.marvunapp.com/Appendix3/xmenxmillvisions.htm Thanks all for your kind words. Gives me encouragement for my next custom. Another one of Alex Ross'.
  11. Yup. I used Bulseye and sculpted the visor & gloves on him + removed all of Bullseye's stuff.
  12. Here's my 2nd ever custom. If you remember my first was Alex Ross' Wolverine. Bullseye was used as the base for this fig. Initially I wanted to do the AXM Cyclops but that's been done to death. So here he is Alex Ross' Cyclops... Enjoy! Both Alex Ross' Cyclops & Wolverine. What do you think? It's a little rough I know but I'm getting better as I practise more.
  13. Yeah the claws are plastic, just ML packaging trimmed into shape and I then used sculpy to do the claws housing.
  14. I was hoping the matte sealer would have dulled the copper color but I got that wrong. Is the unmasked cowl easy to come off? or is it stuck to his body?
  15. It's not a straight re-paint actually. I had to shave off Ast. Wolvie's belt, glove lines & sculpt new calves for him. I had to give him shorter gloves & new sharper claws. I really like how his claws turned out. I chose copper because I thought it'll stand out better on an action figure, I know it won't work in real life.
  16. Good idea. I might try the unmasked version. Question:- The cowl from the unmasked Wolvie (S12), does it come off easily? Thanks all for your kind comments. At this point I'm not skilled enough to do any advanced sculpting so I have to practise on repaints. Will work on my sculpting though.
  17. Here's my first ever custom figure. I got tired of waiting for new MLs to arrive in New Zealand so I thought I'd just custom my own. Enjoy! (or not)
  18. Cool, thanks. Is there a site for non X related heroes?
