    And after the battle is done he will walk over our cold, velour-covered corpses.

    I always wanted IDW to do comic adaptations of the two Abrams films with the look of TOS. I'd personally buy them!

    After what I've done with my TOS inspired Into Darkness images, I do want to try doing the Reboot space scenes in a TOS style. I wonder what a TOS Narada would look like. :vulcan:

    Well, the Narada was from the Prime TNG era. But I get what you're saying.

    Yeah, the Narada comes from that very history and timeline but I could see perhaps more of a Doomsday Machine-like design to the giant ship if the film had been made to replicate the visual style and sensibilties of TOS. The Narada has a very Borg-like look to it, especially if you personally consider the Countdown comics from 2009 to be canon and official (they established that Nero and his crew adapted Borg technology to mutate their fairly standard Romulan mining ship and make it grow to a colossal size and power before they were all sucked back in time and changed history) but a Narada with a late '60s aesthetic might have more of Fesarius or Planet Killer feel to its design.

    I once had this old Nerf gun back in the 90's that sort of looked like the Narada. I'm sure with some paint and modifications, I could make it look like a 60's version of the Narada. It's pretty much a bunch of knives anyway. :rommie:

    Considering what the actual TOS prop department acquired and used to create weapons, tools and other devices a Nerf gun might actually be a step up in some regards. ;)

    When I get the time, I'll start a Thread showing off my film props made from scratch. :)

    I just ordered an Inhumans figure set. I really only wanted Black Bolt and Medusa, but on ebay they go for around $25-$40 separately. So for $25 I'll just have to deal with the extra figure. :p

    Karnak is probably the best one in the box. You can make Smart Alec from Omega Flight, or the Wingless Wizard...

    or put the head on Puck and make the Gremlin from Hulk.


    CCC.

    His pictures are always a lot of fun to look at. He's pretty creative with those ships and Photoshopping.

    First it was X-Men, now the Shelf Avengers are being invaded by the Inhumans! Black Bolt, Medusa, and Karnak have arrived.

    Oops.

    Getting to know their new companions. Karnak has already beaten up Hawkeye. He'll take on the Hulk later.

    Haha. You're just lucky Black Bolt didn't take out your entire shelf with that.

    And another classic KM photo set makes this thread the go-to place on the board. :)
