For this posting I'm going to spare you all a lot of my ramblings. I
just wanted to feature some cool and some what uncommon custom figures
along with some corresponding clip art as a reference. All these figures
are great but in terms of detail and the care that was put into to them
I think the best ones are for Vertigo, Sasha Bordaeux and Peacemaker.

It looks like I may have found another good candidate to play Bronze Tiger. Actor Idris Elba
has had no shortage of work in recent years but sci-fi comic book fans may recognize him most from his recent work in Ghost Rider 2
(marginally better then the first which sucked ass) and Ridly Scott's Prometheus.
The website I found this at had action star Jason Statham as Deadshot
which is a pretty good casting call too.
So, I hope you all saw the Young Justice season premiere
yesterday. The episode was called "Satisfaction" and it lived up to it's name for those of us who were eagerly awaiting it. The episode covered a lot of ground but it's main focus was on the original Roy Harper and his recovery since having been found in the final episode of the previous season. Needless to say we get pretty much the whole low down on the Roy Harper/Cadmus/The Light mystery.
Lights Camera and Action Figures, super cool. Sasha is nice and Vertigo is good but Peacemaker went a little farther. He's the winner if I had to rank them. All of them are good though.ReplyDelete
When and if DCUC comes back I hope they step up the articulation to match Marvel Legends, and give us some TaskForceX guys. Not to leave out some Young Justice, Black Manta with a removable helmet should be first. The YJ version a superior design. Props to whoever put it together.
yeah if they ever do that you can bet Dale will be all over that shit. i'm surprised you didn't say anything about the latest Bronze Tiger casting call wassup wit dat?Delete
That Vertigo custom is awesome! If they had one on the shelves that good I would definitely think about forking out some dosh for it. As for the casting - that guy looks even more hard arse then Tiger is - which can only be a good thing. Totally a guy to look out for as I haven't seen him in anything yet that I can recall.ReplyDelete
"dosh"? just when i think i've heard it all when it comes to Aussie slang talk. in regards to Idris Elba, didn't you see Prometheus!? Elba was the captain of the ship.Delete
I really like Idris, I could have watched the whole movie featuring his character in Ghost Rider. That was the only good thing about that garbage. But as BT?, I don't know. The Tiger has a tough guy suave that I don't see him pulling off. I do like him better than the guy from 24.ReplyDelete
What about the fighting? I don't want to see phoney moves. I want to see Ray Park (Darth Maul) type of skill, Westley Snipes type of skills. Westley or Denzel has the right swag, but not the freshness that the character needs his first time on screen. Chiwtel Ejiofor (Serinity) is at the top of my list for BT or Black Panther. I just don't know what to do about the martial arts.
well, Roger Cross is still my #1 pick but Chiwtel Ejiofor wouldn't be a bad pick either and people have mentioned him on this blog before as far as BT actors go. Ejiofor was also in Children of Men which was a great movie. as far as the Ghost Rider movie franchise goes ya gotta wonder how much longer that's gonna go on with two bombs already.Delete
I don't know, I hope their finished torturing us with bad material. I'm going to check out Children of Men.Delete
It's been a lot of garbage, Punishier is another one. So why can't we get a TaskForceX movie, animated movie, hell an animated short would do me good right now.
Cool, cool-ass custom figures, there Shlomo!ReplyDelete
I like 'em, all but the Peacemaker, Sasha, and Count Vertigo ones most of all. The Count Vertigo is definitely a re-painted ML Captain Marvel figure,w/ either a Dr.Strange or Dr. Doom cape.
Peacmaker has to a custom DC Direct Maggog figure. Damn fine job on that custom helmet though. The sculptor makes it realistic enough w/o make the helmet look as ridiculous as it can sometimes.
Not clue on the others, other than the ML Prof.X chair for Oracle.
And yes, YJ was fucking awesome. As much as I liked the new GL episode w/Guy and all, YJ was the better of the two by far. Glad they also explained how and what, and why Speedy was kidnapped and had his arm removed. Made complete sense. Gotta' admire his guts for going off on Luthor w/ only one arm. Arsenal indeed!:)
And who else thinks when the whole "Artemis is dead thing" is discovered that it'll lead to some or a lot of roster changes in the coming future? Sure the rest of the team might understand, but will absolutely hate that they weren't in on it.
This will definitely bite those on the know on the ass, mark my words.
Poor Wally too huh? Right next to the Huntress while she absolutely lost it. They had to have been hard for him:(
Oh, and the Sportsmaster setting out to prove he can hang w/ the big boys, and going after Black Manta. Hell Yeah! That's going to be damn interesting to see how that goes. I bet Sporty's going to last alot longer than everyone thinks when they finally go head to head.
Idris Elba? Not a bad suggestion in case Cross doesn't work. I recently watched Elba in The Losers, based off the Vertigo miniseries, and that was a damn fine movie! And I didn't even read the series yet.
The more I think about it Elba would be choice number 2. And I can't waitttt to see Sports Master vs Black Manta. I pray it goes thru the new series. I do think it's still to many members running around. It hasn't been a problem yet so all's well. The revelation is going to be epic and I hope it has a major twist to it.Delete
