Spider-Ham looks very much off-scale, but as I no longer collect these, that actually enhances the likelihood that I'll pick him up at some point, since I'd like a bigger version to have around the house. I like the look of the Prowler as well, but as I said, I'm not pursuing these as I once did. The other two are simply generic-seeming.

Me too, Spider-Ham is a favorite of mine, and I have no figures from this series for him to be off-scale with.

Prowler looks good, but doubt I'd buy it.

How sad to note the degree to which the DC-ification of Marvel has de-uniqued Spider-Man.

Well then JB you wouldn't be interested in the team of Spider-Men that on the Disney cartoon, I'm waiting for the gruff Spidey that has adamantium claws ; )

Bob, Anti-Venom came around a few years ago. I want to say it was the last Spider-Man story JRjr drew.

No idea about the UK version.

Jesus Christ, what a mess. This third set has been a train wreck. Damn eaglemoss for fucking his up so god damn badly. So many missed characters we wanted (Seriously? No punisher?!) and so much... shite characters nobody wanted. Sigh. At least its almost over.

After 4+ years, I've been hit by the bug again.  I left a couple of key Alpha Flight characters unfinished, one that I scrapped completely and am restarting with a different base figure.  I'm going to work on those as well as a couple simple repaints for now.  I don't have a ton of free time these days, so these will take a while.  Looking forward to it!

I have finally added the last of the original Flight, Snowbird.  I've started and restarted her with three different base models and none of them worked out. I had originally intended this Destiny to become Nemesis, but in the middle of sanding down her face so it looked like a mask (oops), I realized that the cape was all wrong, but that it would work well for Narya.  I may buy another Destiny and start all over so she doesn't have half a nose and lips, but this will do for now.  Now I'm not sure what do do with the Enchantress I stripped the paint off of.  Probably just repaint her.

.

The JB Guardian is still my favorite piece by far, of course!

Here's a custom War Machine part I put together for the Marvel Chess set. I'm doing a Punisher piece next and then maybe Kingpin. Any other suggestions?

There's a new figurine collection out soon (UK):


I'm surprised by this.

Firstly, Panini aren't usually known for this sort of collection (Eaglemoss have specialised in it for years). Panini did stickers (do they still do that?). Panini Comics is the official reprint licensee for Marvel in the UK. They also publish other comics and magazines, such as DOCTOR WHO MAGAZINE. I'm surprised they have entered this (crowded) market.

Secondly, I suspect collectors will have already bought a lot of Eaglemoss collections/figurines. This looks like more of the same.

As for the magazines in such collections, they don't tell most of us anything new. Sure, if you're a new fan, you may learn about Spider-Man's origin, but when I read certain magazines in these collections, it told me nothing that I didn't already know.

That Panini collection was released in Mexico last year. It was originally, and is currently, published in Italy. I do not know what is its deal, they have around 10 figurines from the original Eaglemoss.

Overall  I do not like the collection, lots of them look like cheap plastic toys but... I liked their Green Goblin more than the one from Eaglemoss; they used the real Dr. Octopus; Magneto, Hela, Sentinel and some more nothing to complain about. It is a very uneven collection, Cyclops, Marvel Girl and Angel are in their original uniforms (in beautiful yellow and black) but they have a horrible modern Ice Man with long shorts.

Take a look at their site ( http://www.centauria.it/shop/collezioni/marvel-heroes-3d/ ) but their best in my opinion are:

The Iron Man figure in issue 2 looks to have a bit more bulk than teh Eaglemoss one. looks like Eaglemoss has removed their collection from their site (unless I've just missed it) - which is weird as they were in the process of reissuing it

I am bewildered by this collection. It seems like saturation point.

We've had numerous figurine collections (the chess collections, special collections, etc.). There's also a Marvel history collection which is a magazine.

I am not sure who will buy this because Marvel figurine/magazine history collections have been ubiquitous since 2005!
