For keeping plastic figures in place, Iím fond of using Museum Wax.

I like that the art on the boxes has the X-Men in black and yellow costumes. The figures themselves are much darker than the initial renders. Theyíre still blue, but itís a very, very dark navy that can look black in the right lighting.

I picked up the 80th Anniversary Funko Pops for Mar-Vell and Ms. Marvel, and they are done in red and black and not red and blue.

POP! Iceman, which seems to be trying to combine as many designs as possible, including the ill-considered transparent version. At least it has a base!

Also ordered their first appearance Scarlet Witch, which looks to have the correct details from her original costume.

About the Sunfire... It looks cool, but didn't Sunfire have a belt during Cockrum/JB's era? Also, was it Don Heck that designed Sunfire? He drew the first appearance of the character, but it was in the middle of Neal Adams' run on X-MEN.

Ordered the Moebius Models kit of one of the EVA pods from 2001. Not much of a model builder, but this was too tempting. Itís HUGE. Almost as big as a basketball.

Note my specs at lower right for scale.

Ooooo!  Hadn't seen or heard about those... I may have to look into that.  Thanks for mentioning that, JB!

(EDIT:  $190+ ???  Yeah, no.)

Full set of original X-Men, now. I'm thinking of spraying Iceman solid white.

Still no clue as to why Cyclops is the only one without a base.

******

It's the continued and seemingly endless disrespect for
Cyclops - he's the only Pop figure who falls down all the
time!
