Yeah, I'll talk up Rebel10 customs for the 1000th time. I have her 80th Thor cape and it's perfect. That's a great figure and it's even better with a cloth cape.

I will say I had a bitch of a time removing the original cape, but I didn't heat it and pull it. I cut it out with an X-ACTO knife.

Speedball is shipping! Yes. Can’t wait to put Can of Beams bubbles on him and pose him about. So Robbie, Rich, Jessica, Dwayne, and some other later members. Just need younger Vance and Namorita for original crew. I guess Rich in the red and gold Nova armor for first look.

Gonna be a fun Hasbro weekend, opening new stuff, preordering new stuff, and dreaming about what’s to come.

Thwipp!

Got my set in from Pulse today. A decent set, although I'm not really blown away by anyone. Controller might be my fave of the bunch. Also the last of the window packaging for me. Bummer.

Rebel10customs did a replacement cape for my Mezco Dr. strange, and it's incredible. Also a cape for ML Moon Knight and for SWBS Mandalorian. Can't recommend her enough.

Really quick pic before I crash for the night. You can see I just plugged the cape in the holes.

I've always been staunchly opposed to cloth goods on my 1/12 figures, but the coat on Mafex Gambit is so good and it's really bringing me around. And I'd be lying if I said the heavy, hard cape on 80th Thor wasn't a point of frustration on an otherwise amazing figure.

Aw.. damn it. I do need to buy that damn figure again.



I think the problem, though, with newThor is that his cape carries over onto his chest as part of the sculpt. I'm not sure what the solution is that wouldn't be more work than I actually want to do. Plus, his cape is multi-color and has the white band down the side that wraps over the shoulder to the circle thing.

Way to throw a damper on it. :lol: I should have it in hand Monday. I may be fine with the cape. We shall see.

EDIT! They now say I will have my set tomorrow! W00t!

Give a Rebel10 cape a try. Her work is super reasonably priced and the 80th Thor cape is the perfect place to start.

Herald Thor has a really nice fade from red at the bottom to a deep violet as it goes up. If you're swapping to a cloth cape, it most likely won't recreate that color choice.

Pulse and Target are delivering my overpriced and sale figures (respectively) tomorrow.

Got in my set! I have no problems with Thor's cape, and he looks amazing. Great sculpt work. I'll be fine with the next version on it where he's not the Herald of Galactus. Pretty simple paint and head change.

Madam Hydra is ok. Old body, but I suppose it works. I do need another of her heads for a custom.

U.S. Agent is another fine repaint. At least he has a stern look, since Walker is kind of an ass.

Blue Marvel is well done. He's just never wowed me an any stories.

Speedball surprised me. I was really stoked to have him in hand, even though he's not the outfit I wanted.

Controller is perfect. I thought his legs were stuck out in a "V" stance, but when I put them forward all the way, they could go down straight.

Really great to have a bunch of comic figs.

Whoa, thanks for that. I came here to ask about that "V" stance mine was stuck in, and your fix of just moving his legs all the way up worked for me as well. Weird. :D

Cracked open this set today. Just a solid, varied, good showing I think. The highlight for me is the improved arm articulation on the female arms for Quake/Maria (yep, bought two, needed both of them, wanted both since I started collecting). And Thor just pops. I really like what they've done with him here.

Face sculpts all around look great in particular. One complaint: where's Blue Marvel's graying temples? I thought they'd add that. Otherwise though I really love his figure. Another character I've wanted forever.

Surprised at how much I like Speedball. I mean I wanted him, I'm a New Warriors fan all the way, but he's just simple and fun.

Madam Hydra probably uses a buck that should be on its way out, but honestly, she's yet another character I've wanted since I started collecting - simple, straightforward, effective, I'm satisfied even if she could be better.

And for like the 15th time, I regretted buying ANOTHER Iron Man... but once I have him in hand I really dig him. This keeps happening.

Actually nevermind...if I move the legs all the way up and back down they stay straight for a few seconds, then they automatically start spreading back out into a V. :oops:
