Thanks, I used a square of green foam rubber from Michael’s. It is flexible and does allow his arms to move.

I cut the foam rubber in a Victorian cape pattern that I found on Google (used a China saucer to make a perfect circle and quarter for the neck hole).

I then trained the foam rubber down into the drooped cape shape with an elastic and a hair-dryer, but it still did not hang down like I wanted it to. To my great pleasure, once I painted the foam rubber with a mix of green and black acrylic paint, it stiffened slightly upon drying. After only one more training session with an elastic, it stayed in the desired position permanently.

I also took care not to damage any of the original parts, so I can remove his hair and put his hat back on if I want to.

I am really on the fence now I’ve got this wave.

I thought I would want and keep all the single figs and trade/pass on Hyde as I had a notion to kitbash a version of him from Joe Fixit and other parts, but in hand the movie figs all feel a bit off and I like Hyde and the non movie figs more.

Shang Chi feels a back step in articulation for not having butterfly shoulders and the rotten socket neck. Not as bad as movie Venom but not great range.

Katy is a human traffic cone, very underwhelming but I had a feeling I’d be turning her into an Awkwafina custom anyway.

Death Dealer and Wenwu are just not fun to pose with their costume designs, I didn’t like the movie Antman body anyway but this is more restricted.

Xialing reminds me too much of Cate Blanchett in Indy 4, and her most of all I have no context for so until I see the movie this wave feels wierdly anticlimactic to get all at once when usually I never manage to get a whole wave in one swoop.

Hyde is growing on me mostly due to the great hand detail, needs more paint to accentuate it though. I’m wondering if I can transplant hair from outback hulk onto him

Finally unboxed the Xialing and Katy I impulse bought on Target and also think Xialing looks like Cate Blanchett in Indy 4! I'm surprised you're the first person I've seen compare her to Irina Spalko because she really does resemble her. Mine's face print is blurry, which probably doesn't help.

Also agree - now that I've seen a few of these in-person, they don't wow me. I don't really see Simu in the Shang-Chi portrait. I think it's that his eyebrows are brown and not black, which is an odd choice, and his upper lip is too full (though that may be a face printing issue).

I think Xialing could pair well with Akiko from the upcoming Snake-Eyes line. Maybe they can both be disciples for Storm Shadow.

I am a big fan of these movie figs. Yeah, some articulation limitations, but most of that is costume design based and not really avoidable. I am happy

Thanks for the idea! I think it looks okay, but would need some slicing of the towering peg they used to hold his hat on. What do you think? Worth the paint?

I can't get past shipping to payment. He is the only thing I am purchasing and he shows as in-stock. What am I doing wrong?

I know several people are making great customized versions of AI Tony to make a perfect Classic comic colors Iron Man. And those customs look awesome.

But I am rewatching Avengers-Earth’s Mightiest Heroes with my kids, and Iron Man has the blue eyes in the face plate and a blue uni-beam and chest nodes, just like the figure. So I appreciate the colors on the figure as is, too!

Saw 2 of the Armored Caps, and Two Iron Men today along with Weneu, Shang-Chi and Xialing. Grabbed a Shang-Chi and couldn't be happier that I did, wish I would have got Xialing and Wenwu but it twas only a grocery run lol.

It anyone desperately need the Hyde part (I think its pretty readily available though) I'd be happy to send it out to ya.
