I almost forgot about this one: I just received a MIB Marvel Studios 2004 1:6 scale Blade II action figure that I bought on eBay. It's nowhere as good as the Hot Toys version, but it wasn't bad for the time it was made!

I thought I had snagged a Tiger Mask figure that I have not seen anywhere else, but the seller told me it was damaged and sent me a refund. This was the title of the item:

Collectible 1/6 Scale タイガーマスクTiger Mask Figure Whole Box

It wasn#t the vinyl kit, it was an action figure with a gold and black body suit with pauldrons and chest armour and it looked cool! Sad

Just purchased on eBay the Easy&Simple British SCO19 Sniper head sculpt and body loose (the one that looks like Mark Strong). Now I need to find him an outfit to turn him into Merlin from Kingsman.

Just found a complete in box ZCWO MH12 (compressor themed tool/worksite set). I’ve been regularly checking saved searches for about a year and a half. Patience! I’m excited. Their tool sets are some of the coolest 1/6 accessories imho. I’m partial to everyday-themed stuff.

Tbleague loose parts of Spartan Goddess, Arhian pirate, Valkyrie, lady death, and Galaxy soldier. I accidentally messed up 3 Tbleague heads (Snow, Arkhalla, Shi). Although not 1:6, I PO Prince Adam Laughing "Whats going on" edition. I still haven't bought Lady Death yet because I was hoping the blue version would get released.

Is it worth messaging the seller to see if you can still get it at a discount?  There ain't much that can't be fixed!

You so need to!  A Kingsmen cast would be a pretty awesome set to have.

That does sound like a really great haul.  And I'm glad I'm not the only one who loves that Prince Adam bust.  I started cracking up the second I saw it.  I was tempted to pick it up too just knowing I couldn't look at it and not smile.

For anyone not in the know, I'm gonna just leave this here...

Also, super jealous. These ZCWO tool sets are so rad. I'm going to take a crack at making a compressor myself out of an empty vitamin bottle, but theirs is gonna be tough to beat.

I have a feeling that there was some kind of chicanery going on. This year I have had several sellers tell me that what I ordered was not in stock or not available anymore and it makes me suspicious. I don't know how it would benefit them to lie about items for sale but I am a bit innocent when it comes to scams.

The listing said there were two figures available and that remained the case when I received the e-mail. Only a short time later was the listing removed on Ebay. As I have never seen the figures on sale from any other seller and no image matching the one in that listing came up when I Googled it, I assume that either the seller was let down by a manufacturer/supplier or...

I would have bought a damaged figure as you suggest but it was not offered to me which also raised doubts in my mind. Perhaps I am too suspicious?

Ordered an Easy & Simple Mk13 SCAR rifle with an enhanced grenade launcher from Black Ops Toys. It wasn't cheap; even after the 11% discount code, it still cost me a total of $44.06, which includes First Class postage.

Nah, you have plenty of reason to be skeptical.  I'd probably still chase it a bit if I hadn't seen it anywhere else, but be cautious and ready to bail on the deal if it started looking too sketchy.  There really are a lot of protection guarantees through ebay, so if something doesn't arrive, or is totally different from the listing when it does, eBay is actually really good about getting you sorted quickly if you file a claim.  If you make a deal with the seller outside of eBay, like you just agree to paypal him to send it, it's a bit of a different story.  But even paypal has some built in guarantees.  They really do make it a lot less risky to take a chance on some stuff like this.

My newest acquisition is when she is an really good mood she goes by Lucy.

 Hosted on Fotki

But when she is in a really foul mood that when she takes off helmet and cape and her horns and wings come out and than she goes by Lucifer.

Also I acquired Tbleague Arhian Pirate and Skarah the Valkyrie (their are still in their boxes) a few weeks ago and I ordered the Cowgirl last week.

Okay...I'm just getting into 1/6th figures for the first time since 1973 or 74, and because I want to do both WWII and a Post Apocalypse themes, my initial purchases were.....quite a lot, though only one figure.

The figure is a Phicen/TBLeague female S24A figure

The head I ordered for it is this one for Super Duck.  I already know the ball joint socket will be too large  but hope it is not too outsized compared to the body.

https://www.urbansamuraihobbies.com/super-duck-cosplay-series-asian-headsculpts-2-0/

I ordered these Magic Cube shorts which were way too big for the figure and had to be altered with cutting and sewing,

https://www.blackopstoys.com/collections/female/products/magic-cube-military-style-female-od-green-color-short-shorts

Along with this top, which is also too big but will do for now and did not require alteration, though it is loose in the chest

https://www.blackopstoys.com/collections/female/products/magic-cube-military-style-female-beige-top-1

My girl does not yet have any footwear.

For my as of yet un-ordered male figure representing an officer of the Royal Canadian Artillery in Sicily and Italy, 1943, this Khaki bush jacket which dead ringer for the ones I wear on re-enactment weekends
(I have four full sized ones)  

https://www.blackopstoys.com/collections/female/products/magic-cube-military-style-female-beige-top-1

It came with these shorts which I will probably assign to another figure, again pretty close to the ones worn by most members of my volunteer artillery battery.

https://www.veegostore.com/product_info.php?cPath=60_61&products_id=280

An officer's forage cap for my WWII
https://www.ebay.ca/itm/Banjoman-1-6-Scale-Custom-WW2-British-Army-Khaki-Service-Cap/191546436626?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2057872.m2749.l2648

I was also able to source some 1/6th scale British/Canadian cap badges and rank insignia from a guy in the UK.

I got some boots, hose and puttees too, not to mention a pair of British/Canadian artillery binoculars. A web belt, ammo pouch and Enfield holster also included. Also a tanker's holster and a British/Canadian style Browning HP holster

I went way, way overboard on parted out weapons.  I have already or have coming in the next few days.  

3 x M1928A1 Thompsons and 1 x M1 Thompson (to be split among my post apocalypse and WWII collections)

2 x M1 carbine  (For my post apocalypse collection)

1 x SKS carbine  (For my post apocalypse collection)

1 x Browning HP pistol.  Labelled as a German issue one, but a close look at it reveals that Dragon used a Canadian Inglis Browning (Hooray) as the basis for this casting.

1 x Browning M2HB 50 Cal.  MG.  I honestly don't know what I'll do with this gun, but I had to have it.

1 x S&W .38 Mod 10. Which is close enough to the Smith & Wessons used by the Canadian Army in WWII.

1 x Sterling SMG, identical except for the mag, to the one I carried in the Canadian Army. It will likely be a "Survivor weapon" for my post apocalypse collection.

1 x German G3A3  which is close enough to HK91 that one of my "survivor's" will carry.

1 x Lee-Enfield No1 MkIII rifle.  I'm not sure what I'm gonna do with this one.  They were not used in combat by the Canadian Army in WWII, having been replaced by the No4 rifle, so it may be a post apocalypse rifle also. (or not)

Oh, and I almost forgot; a Howa Type 89 assault rifle. I don't know what I'm gonna do with that one either since the real ones are not exported outside of Japan. It was just too cool looking to pass up.

I think I may have bought a toy store…

Well, not literally - although I do believe that I will be putting the children of certain eBay sellers through college, as well as supporting a few extended Asian families for the next several years, thanks to the generous holiday spirit that had washed over me at once with a grand stupidity.  

However, since then, I have taken Stryker’s recent advice and have just ordered my first Kumik Sculpt, the lovely KM 18-31…  

And if it does turn out to be yellow, Stryker; well, then, I can only surmise that you are secretly that guy in Hangzhou, Zhejiang…

ThePhotogsBlog, that is an EPIC order, and will keep you out of (or in) trouble for a bit. Stryker's right that loose parts are killer on finances, but damned if I don't spend a ton on them too. Psyched to see what you have in store, and glad to see someone else doing some post-apocalyptic figures!

PureEnergy, I wish you the best of luck on your trip down the loose parts rabbit hole. May we see you on the other side. And I'm skeptical (sorry to say) that the Kumik head will match, and I've been avoiding them for years (except in the case of a head I have with some pretty extensive war paint) but I'll be glad to be wrong, and find out they've gotten with the program. Although, If my plan to get good with my recently acquired airbrush pans out, being able to repaint Kumik heads will open up a ton of possibilities.

Ah, uh-oh… This is getting curiouser and curiouser…

I hear you, Spooks, but the Sculpt appears to have potential as compared to photos of other Kumiks that I’ve seen - and the images of it seem invariable.  We shall see.

I was still on the fence about getting a SHCC Vampirella, even though I got xmas gift cards, I still wanted to wait. I saw them sold out yesterday late night, it went from 10 last week in stock, to 8 yesterday morning , then 6 yesterday evening, then 4 a few hours, then 2. I ordered one after watching all the reviews on youtube plus I got spooked. I just found my Creepy and Eerie head sculpts that I got when I was a teen, so now i need to make them.

Also, I am using Vallejo Carne Base 70.815 basic skintone paint on my Phicen tans. They match the new pale bodies slightly. Instead of matching the body to my Huntress head, I painted the head in light brush strokes

I also bought a mythic legion weapon set to see if it can be used for Tbleague figures

131 Re: Your Latest Purchase... on Wed Jan 09, 2019 8:02 pm

Being new, all my purchases are pretty new.  But full set wise, I got Evan Peters as Quicksilver because that actor is so adorable, and I thought the resemblance was awesome.  Then I got Nathan Fillion as Malcolm Reynolds in Firefly. which was a lucky thing.  I was thinking "what action figures would I want, if I could have them?  And I immediately thought Firefly!  I love all the characters in that show!

Now, I've always gotten dolls because I just loved them and they never represented a character or anything, but this time around, because these are action figures, I decided to come up with a goal.  My goal is to embody each of the characters in Firefly.  I think that would really be fun!  So Mal, who is my very newest purchase, is the start, and I'm zeroing in on Kaylee next.  Mal will be the one setting the standard, being professionally made.

And OMG, He-man "what's go'in on" it's been SO LONG!!!

In the same boat as Peaches, everything is new.  I ordered quite a few things at once since I had fresh birthday money to burn and was caught up on my bills.  Just got my Phicen female body this past Saturday and today I got the head sculpt.  Originally the head sculpt was going to be a placeholder until the one I really like is released, but having it on the body and having the skin match so well, I think I'm happy as is.  Her expression is perfect.

Unfortunately for her, the clothes I ordered won't be here for another day or two, and its cold.  




...she's less than thrilled.

These are the bigger items that have come in:

Wow, that is QUITE a haul, Stryker! Shocked  I've been curious how that Roman Holiday Audrey Hepburn turned out. And I am super envious of the Purgatori (for customizing related reasons, of course). Razz  All seem like nice items from the promo pics, but the main standouts from my PoV would definitely be the Wonder Womans (Women?? lol), and that Sideshow Obi-Wan. <3

The Roman Holiday Audrey looks EXACTLY like the promo pics (something very unusual in this hobby). She's beautiful -- just like the young Audrey.

The Mythos Obi-Wan is a bit of a surprise, really. Sideshow doesn't exactly have a great track record when it comes to "humans", but this guy turned out awesome, and I'm so very grateful that he looks more like Sir Alec rather than Ewan (no offense to Ewan, I like him as an actor -- I just hated those prequels so bad, I don't want anything to remind me of them .... sorry). A customizer over at the Freaks was making sand-base toppers for Obi, so I picked one of those up, too.

I bought an extra HS and body of Purgatori so I could make a custom character myself -- but she would look great as a Twi'lek. Yeah, the Wonder Woman figures are pretty cool -- my favorite being the Training Armor. I will say, the DiD Roger Moore figure is fantastic -- ten times better than what BCS will no doubt put out; not only does it look like Roger, but it has nice paint apps -- not globbed on like a Barbie.

I love the Hela figure, but I wish Hot Toys would have given us a second head sculpt with her hair down looking all smoking-hot Goth chick; luckily I got in on a custom head sculpt by a guy over in Asia (which killed my chances of POing a couple more figures).

I did also get a Rey (Daisy Ridley) from The Last Jedi (long before I saw the movie); I didn't mind The Force Awakens, though it did seem a little like deja vu watching it. The Last Jedi -- sadly, I turned it off half way through. I guess I'll just stick to Rogue One and the OT from this point forward. Why, Disney? Why?!!!

Ooh, that's GREAT news about that Audrey figure, Stryker! I may actually consider her now. Perhaps even as a gift for a friend of mine who is also a huge fan of hers (and especially that film) -- too bad there's no Gregory Peck to go with her though. :'(

And whoops, I scrolled through so quickly the first time, I must have missed the Bib Fortuna figure -- good choice there, too. ;D

It's great that there's a red-coloured seamless body out there now, so perfect for SW aliens. Your plan for the Purgatori sounds great. (My own intended purpose for her would be for a custom Shaak Ti, to fit in with my current Clone Wars-era focus.)

Now if only they would put out some Blue, Green, and (my dream) ORANGE bodies, lol. I vaguely recall seeing some white and paler blue bodies out there (Lady Death and her maidens?), and I know there's a Hot Toys Gamorra (sp?), but she's way too pricey (for me) to buy just for parts. Le sigh....

I haven't seen any in-hand pics of that Mythos Obi-Wan figure, but he seems nice from the few images I have encountered, and I love the concept of it (and the fact that he looks kinda like a blend of both PT and OT Obi's is very neat). Suddenly reminds me that I always wanted that Mythos unmasked Vader statue, but sadly like most statues, it was always way out of my price range. Razz  

And hey, you don't need to defend liking (or not minding) TFA. While I have a TON of reasons why it hurt and upset me as deeply as it did (so much so that I have actively avoided knowing anything about the rest of the fake sequels films for the sake of my sanity), I've long ago accepted that I am a bit of an outlier in the SW fandom, and I'm more than used to others around me liking those movies. When I'm on tumblr, I can just blacklist everything about them, but it's much trickier to avoid it completely elsewhere. But I've said my piece on that subject many times over now, and these days I tend to just try to focus on the aspects of SW that I *do* enjoy and that I accept as my preferred canon.

So yeah, Rogue One = EXCELLENT. One of the reasons that film worked so well for me was that the basic plot of it has ALWAYS been 'canon', since 1977  -- the whole thing was essentially a fleshed out retelling of the opening scroll of ANH, and I absolutely loved that. :')

But ahhh, sorry for the ramble...hoping you will post in-hand pics of some of these figures soon? Smile

Stryker, nice haul indeed. And it made me feel so much better about my own spending. I have bought plenty of parted-out parts, but only a couple of boxed sets lately (though the emperor and his throne should be arriving anytime now).

Other than size, it’s not much different than any of the other TBLs; I’m honestly not sure if it’s a body design they’ve used before or not, either. I have an affinity for ballet dancers, and the impossible way in which they make everything seem so graceful, so I had to have her; I just wish she was in a more “traditional” outfit. I have to pretend in my mind that she’s just at rehearsal.

Oh, one of the things that also just showed up today is that same steampunk outfit in your icon, Peaches.

Had to edit one of my pics; realized I put up two of the same motorcycle. The USA chopper in the new pic is pretty nice, but sadly, like most "1/6 scale motorcycles" -- it really isn't. More like 1/7th. I really wish when they made these things, someone actually knew something about motorcycles (like how big they are). I think the closest one I've seen to reality is the Ghost Rider bike. The BMW is almost twice as big as the chopper, and with the raked-out fork, it should have been the other way around -- at least length-wise.

Sweet haul Very Happy If you get a chance to post pics of those weapons I appreciate it, I'm currently on the hunt for stuff for my current and next couple of figures.

My God Stryker, that is an epic pile of loot!

I have a friend who's had the same complaint about the lack of an unmasked Hela head (She really did look good as a goth Very Happy). Very curious to see the separate head when it comes in. Do you have a link to the seller's pics?

That Obi Wan really does look rad.

I was curious about the Ballet Dancer body too, and if it's just the same as the new smaller bodies. Is it not?

And I'm actually in the process of customizing that same BMW bike right now! You think the scale is off on that one too?

Rev, I think the BMW isn’t bad. It’s pretty close, probably as close as one can get without going the custom route and spending a small fortune to have someone make exact measurements. The inaccurate sizes of motorcycles is most evident once you put a figure on them, and see just how awkward the arm and leg positioning is, and how much bigger the figure looks in relation to the bike, particularly with these cruiser styles. Every time I see one of those Arnold/Terminator figures on a bike I have to laugh.

I really don’t think the body is much different from those new mid-size bodies (can’t remember the numbers); she’s taller than the really small bodies (26-27?).

I’m on my way to physical therapy; when I get home I’ll post the link for that Hela sculpt.

okay, Rev. Here's the link to Nut Pizs' product. The web-site shopping cart doesn't work properly, so if you're interested in any of his stuff you have to get through to him via social media.
