The fire effects that came with the Marvel Legends Black Widow Deadly Origins fit the barrel of Flints shotgun just fine.

Wondering how much work I would need to do to turn the 1/6Action Man F117 to fit 1/12 Joe's? Someone on FB local to me is selling one and I'm not sure if it worth the hassle...

I've got one, from back when I was letting DisThunder be a terrible influence on my collecting habits. To stand in the background, all you need is to remove the stickers. It looks fantastic! But it's got no cockpit, nor opening canopy. So if your goal is to have figures piloting the thing, you'd have to cut it open & add quite a bit to make it worth your while.

Rats. Sawing through vehicles is hit or miss for me, I only have tools for model kit plastic, which is more workable than the plastic on most toy vehicles (damn my batmobile mod!!) So it may not really work out...

Big Lots find:

Saw these army dudes at Big Lots and knew their guns would be a decent fit:

Some shots:
Spoiler! :
Looks like we got ourselves a g36k:

And a FN MK 17 5.56cal:

There was only one other figure set in the line but the weapons weren't nearly as nice as this pack's weapons. My Big Lots had like 20 of this pack in particular so if your store is loaded you could probably load your whole crew with them.

Great price on those. I have been buying those same figure sets on evilbay, nice to see them hit a retail store.

That g36 is really nice. The scar is a bit oversized but still nice. But yet another reason I buy add on's from Marauder.

Off to Big Lots!

During my searches for vehicles I read a few comments stating that 1/12 bikes were too small for Hasbro's figures (marvel legends) and that 1/10 was the better scale. So I bought the cheapest 1/10 bike i could find and thought it was TOO big. I eventually bought a 1/12 bike too. Anyway, I wanted to post it here so people interested could have a reference. Which do u think scales better?

I've got this coming...hopefully it looks good scale-wise. Pretty cheap though.

I think that the 1/10 looks better, to my eye, than the 1/12 does. I was trying to decide if it was just because I have a mental image that's off, but looking at pictures of motorcycles from the side, I think that the 1/10 looks closer to "real" than the 1/12, which looks way too tiny, to me. It's unfortunate, because neither looks quite right, but the "too small" is more immediately noticeable to me. Something right in between would be best, haha.

Here's what I'm comparing it to:

Funny thing about the 1/12, when I took the pic, it did look too small but in hand, it looked alright. Good point on the windscreen though...

If you have money burning a hole in your pocket, there's this one.

If you don't care about the RC part, you can just buy the top part with interiors and everything for half the price in Ali Express. You'd have to figure out how to put wheels on it though...
