Heh. Part of me can't have too much sympathy for Pete.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I have a girl's night out planned now that I have four ladies!

I'll probably add Nightcrawler and Black Knight to the family eventually. I forgot that Black Knight was an Avenger at one time!

Pete could be a dick but he loved Kitty. She really hurt him in the comics. And Lockheed was always torturing him!

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I added a couple more members to my DC Collectibles Crime Syndicate. Here's Owlman and Deathstorm, the evil Earth 3 versions of Batman and Firestorm:


Had one major issue with these: Owlman's knees were assembled upside-down. I had to boil and pop them, and then flip into the proper orientation.

Also, Deathstorm is doing something a little different for DCC. He has the same elbow articulation as Owlman, but it's hidden underneath a sleeve of what looks like either a very soft plastic or vinyl. It keep the look of his arm, but I worry how it will hold up over time. It also restricts the lateral movement of his arm considerably.

Issues aside, I'm very pleased with these figures. I need to pick up Ultraman, Superwoman, and Johnny Quick to complete the team. I wish DCC would make a Grid, but that doesn't look to be in the cards.

^Nice! The William and Kate wedding dolls are really well done.

Ladies night! Black Widow, Sif, Pyslocke, and Kitty have a night of drinking, bitching about their men (or lack of), and mocking poor Hawkeye's portrait.





ETA: Black Knight is ordered!

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Those Royal dolls look superb. Kate in the blue dress and the Diana dolls are the ones that catch my eye the most (though that second William down on the right really nails his face and smile).

Four superheroines drinking? This should be entertaining.

Now time for darts! Bonus points if it goes through Kitty's head.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I just had a great idea for my Black Knight figure when he arrives...there is, of course, another famous Black Knight, the loony who gets all his limbs cut off by King Arthur in Monty Python and the Holy Grail. I could re-enact the scene with Captain Britain and the Black Knight!

That is...if his limbs can come off and easily be put back on...

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Walter's enemies were already in danger. Now that he has the galaxy's greatest bounty hunter at his disposal, god help anyone who gets in his way.

KM, Marvel Universe limbs aren't typically removable, but should pop off and on easily enough if you stick them in boiling water for a little bit.

More Crime Syndicate! Here's the two most insane and bloodthirsty members of the CS, Johnny Quick and his girlfriend, Atomica. They're the evil versions of the Flash and the Atom, obviously:


I just need Superwoman and Ultraman, now. This team will look fantastic when completed.
