I went by my LCS today and they had Namor, Dr. Doom She-Hulk and Captain America arrived today. Got the Captain America figure and I'm impressed by how nice it is.

Stopped in my LCS today, and picked up ten of these. They're pretty sharp. I had to immediately repaint the Angel of course, restoring him to his proper black and white (even tho it was the red and white version I drew in THE CHAMPIONS).

Looking forward to more.

They have indeed released Thor. Go to www.marvel-figurines.co.uk to see the full line-up.

By the way, JB, when you repainted the Angel, did you restore his shoulders to the original design, or did you keep the peaks?

Unfortunately, the little figures have scribed lines demarking the edges of colors on the costumes. These are somewhat erratic, some quite deep, some barely visible. In the case of Angel, the scribed lines on his shoulders are quite deep, and would be, if anything, high-lighted if I changed the configuration of the colors. On his mask and legs, however, this is somewhat less of a problem.

As usual, sorry for the blurry shot. I really don't get enough use out of my digital camera to justify the expense of a better one!

My LCS has a bunch; I just picked up Captain America about ten days ago.  I just wish that they hadn't sculpted him with the shield facing behind him.  Otherwise, nice fig.

I only found two at our LCS, Black Panther and Loki . They were $12. Is that what they are running in the rest of the US?

Evening gentlemen, glad to find another group of individuals with a liking for these figurines.  Just to put you all in the picture I have a website concentrating mainly on this collection.  I have a regular supply of scoop news and images direct from the editor of the magazines.  Personally I think the figures are awesome and the collecting community appears to be ever expanding.  Confirmed run up to 80 figs, 99% certain will go up to 100 and there is a very strong possibility of going way beyond that.  I won't post any spoilers here (that's not my style) however if you do want to see more, and I mean MUCH more nip into my website and have a browse around my collection and other stuff.  I'm not here to poach members or anything, just want to spread the word.  I run a forum too, if you are interested you will find the links.

 

Cheers for now, Grim Reaper www.marvelcustoms.co.uk

 

ps nice site guys, crisp and clear and I do like the NO PSEUDONYMS idea, makes for a friendly site :)
