Yeah dude, only arrived last Friday with me so still probably not hit everywhere but those butterfly shoulders make it really easy

Anybody able to tell me if the gloves on the Morph from the Sugar Man wave are sculpted or overlays?
When I popped the hand off, looks like an overlay since the wrist inside is blue. The yellow doesn't slide off, so maybe glued.
Much appreciated.

Occurs to me to post this here as I think a few people mentioned this as a possibility and yes it works really nicely for Joseph

The arms swapped out easily, no troubles at all. And those shoulder pads are actually separate pieces seated over the pegs that plug into the torso. So they're entirely optional if you don't like them. And of course, after I had taken this picture I swapped the wristbands out for the ones that came with Young Thor/Odinson and that looks much better.

This'll do nicely.

Favor to ask of anyone willing to try. I'm looking to headswap the wavy haired head from Walgreens Emma Frost onto an AoA Shadowcat. From what I've been able to gather, the barbell ball joint on Shadowcat is too large for the Emma Frost head. Does anyone know of any figures that have a neck barbell that would fit in the Shadowcat body and also fit the Emma Frost head (or is smaller than the hole in Emma's head since I could always thicken it with heat shrink tubing)?

Have we learned it these are SW 1/12 or ML 1/12 scale? I assumed the former, so it would be shorter out of the box.

None of those Indy figures are available yet, so I don't think it's been determined. Also, close attention to the package shows that the tux version isn't part of a full wave (it doesn't contain a Build an Artifact part). This could be an exclusive.

Not sure that changes my plans. But thanks for the way to early critique.

Elektra's wild 80's hair sent my mind racing on it's uses. People have said about perfect reuse for Calypso, I think it'd be great for 80's She-Hulk, and maschine9 commented in the Daredevil 3-pack thread about how it should have been used for Dark Phoenix.

I gave it a go and it's not bad at all. Very reminiscent of the original 80's artwork and more recent stuff based off that depiction. It's not completely grown on me but it's a nice alternative.

The tuxedo version is a dead ringer for A View To A Kill era Roger Moore.

I can definitely use that tuxedo body for random civilians or maybe a hero going undercover.
