Wooooo! I haven't been on here in a minute! What have I been missing?!
Ra's remains immortal and supernatural...Alfred has pulled a disappearing act worthy of Gentleman Ghost, Joker as Thug got cheap, Blake got easier to find. Other than that...not much.
Hahaha, Gentleman Ghost, from the Giganta wave. Love it!
Not TDKR MM related but also looking for Batman Hot Wheels vehicles (cars, boats, cycles, planes).
Question: Why does TDK MM Harvey Dent package say "scarred coin" when only Two-Face should have the "scarred coin?"
Found Ra's at TRU today; if one of my buddies doesn't take it, I'll see if anybody here needs it. I was pretty shocked to see him actually.
OOOH OOOOH ME! haha
Me: Ra's, why do you continue to elude me?
Ra's Al Ghul: Because you never learned to mind your surroundings...
*ceiling falls on ScarecrowMan666*
Me: ARGGGGGGGHHHH!!!! SCALPPPPPERRRSSSS!!!
AHH I need/want this! any word on when this will be released?
The Play arts figures look amazing! Does anyone have any information about them? Release dates? Price? I die for that Catwoman!
I have the following Movie Master figures at cost if you want them. PM me if you are interested:
Catwoman Goggles UP
Catwoman Goggles Dwn
Blake but the card is not moc. Good for opening fig is mint.
Possibly an alfred too. Had gordon but sent him packing.
I think they are going to be around $60 USD for each figure.
Grabbed Catwoman Goggles up on eBay for 30 CAD.
Not MM related, but i would really like to know if anyone has a robin costume sitting around. The one with the long green sleaves and pants, i believe it's Teen Titans, I really need the belt. I lost it and can't find it anywhere. Thanks alot and again sorry its not MM related
still no ra's but i found a 1:50 hot wheels bat at fry's today,i opened it and it's really cool already had one that i keeped sealed,also had a few other different ones to.
Just found Blake, and completed the collection!! Now onto Arkham City
blurry **** picture, and non-movie masters related, but i'm working on repainting one of my batman begins tumblers into a bane tumbler. (the lights and sound one for the 5" figures).
has anyone else done a repaint custom of one of these into a camo one? i saw some on google, but dont know if that one is anyones here?
i have another tumbler (as well as the a repainted black one) that i might make into the "talia" tumbler (missle launcher one).
for this one picture, i took the tumbler apart, primered the sections, painted in "sand" color, and now i'm doing the brown spots and then will do touch up paint, do detailing, and then weather. i'm not adding more leds or anything else, just doing a repaint.
the missle one, i want to make the launcher area from sheet styrene, then do a repaint.
(long post for a blurry ****** picture haha)
these tumblers are pretty close in scale to the movie masters. i wish there was a movie masters tumbler, but doubt that would happen. i always wish there was a movie masters "the bat" and movie masters Lucious Fox!
Please, can you send me some tips (or photos) of how you did him?
Hey, anyone preordering TDK trilogy? It's due out on (T) 12/4.
Anyone get an email today about their TDKR Hines Ward action figure from McFarlane? It's due out this month!
what did the email say, i plan to get that figure
finished camo tumbler for the bane figure to stand on, haha
Shipping October 2012 so any time now....
Looks incredible Tyler, I was thinking of picking up one of the smaller cheaper ones maybe from Walmart to practice on. Which paint color did you use on it for the base and brown spots?
thank you kindly. the color "sand", and the color "satin espresso". i took apart the tumbler and cleaned all pieces with rubbing alcohol, and then primered each section with automotive grey sandable primer. then painted everything the "Sand" color, and then masked off the areas to do the brown camo areas. then i did a dark grey wash over everything, and wiped off the excess wash, let dry (speed drying with a hair dryer) and did some silver dry brushing over select highlights. then i added a dark grey, and dark brown wash to simulate dirt and grit near the bottom area and the tires
Got a blake! Now all l need is a Ra's
I might anger some collectors but I've realized that I don't need to buy all the MM figures just to complete the Bat-signal, the reason being is that I can't justify paying $16.95 for one action figure, that's just way too expensive it used to be that kids would beg their parents for toys and now how can a kid spend their hard earned allowance on these?
Star Wars figures are at $8.99, G.I.Joe's are at $9.99 and the Marvel figures go for the same almost, did toy companies forget that kids are the main target for these toys?
Prices are more expensive than ever on toys. It's no secret. However, it's not all because of the greed of the corporations. Gas prices are high, the cost of materials is rising, and China has been relegating higher wages. You can't really get upset at the latter, at least. Most (if not all) of these toys are made out there. The reality is that prices will probably continue to rise from here on out. And as always, toy collecting is a hobby. If the price of an action figure is worth it to you, then you'll buy it. If it's not, then you won't.
