Starting up this thread again by announcing that Haslab Sentinels are arriving! I wish I had got one!

Also I had though I was nearly finished with Legends with having all the early 90's X-teams. Just a few to go right. A proper X-Factor Wolfsbane to complete that team. A retool into Feral, Siryn and the upcoming X-force set to complete them. But then they dropped the team I forgot about in the 90's Thankfully that 3 pack Excalibur team takes 4/6ths of the characters I cared about getting in one box set with Captain Britain, Meggan, and Shadowcat with Lockheed. Since I have Nightcrawler already all I really need after the 3 pack is Phoenix Rachel.

And I'm not picky about costume accuracy so if Meggan had a different costume earlier I really don't care since the green outfit is how I remember her. Same with Captain Britain later having a different suit when she had the green suit. I will have the core members of the team and that's all I care. Kluyn, Widget etc I don't really remember outside of seeing the teams trading card back in the day so if they get made later Kudos to those who want them.

I canceled my preorder on the Modular Iron Man in order to cut back on my toy habits but if I see him in town I'm defiantly picking him up.

But the Silver Centurion was used in one of my first Marvel Comics. Some sort of winter special that had 3 or four stories. Iron Man story had Spymaster using this new hacker named Glitch to remotely control the armor until Glitch figured out Spymaster wasn't a good guy and helped Iron Man.

So today’s Marvel stream started with some back patting about how well the Galactus HasLab went. Then they told of us that the Excalibur 3 pack, the Shield agent 2 pack and the Skrull army builder is going up on Pulse at 1PM tomorrow for Premium members and 2PM for others.

Then came word of a new Vintage 90’s carded Spider-Man figures including.
Symbiote Spider-Man
Ben Reilly Spider-Man
Spider Armor Mk 1 Spider-Man ( the silver and black suit)
Animated Hobgoblin (no scaled armor on this one)
Shocker
And Hammerhead

Both Symbiote and Ben Spidey’s use the new Spider-Man body from the Last retro carded Spider-Man.

Continuing the retro carded train will be old looking Marvel ToyBiz cards with Falcon and two versions of Loki. A classic Loki with a new headsculpt and two daggers and a re-release of Lady Sif Loki.

and then the teases.

1. Another Legless figure. (Best guess would be a new Whirlwind)

2. Another large carded Retro Spidey Release (most likely a Rhino re-release)

3. Two new characters that have never seen a Hasbro or ToyBiz Legends release that were in the Series 2 Marvel Universe card set of the 90’s ( maybe Calypso, Scalphunter, or potentially a few “new” versions of characters like X-Factor Jean, or Rachel in her Phoenix look)

4. A look at a shot up oil drum

5. A card of what looked like a a world war 2 backdrop.

So goin after Excalibur, Ben Spider-Man (my actual favorite Spidey suit), Shocker, and Hobgoblin.

Retro card classic Loki and Falcon are going up all around today at 1pm eastern. Haven’t heard if Lady Loki is too though. She seems to be the one people are after.

the new AOA Colossus Baf Wave just hit my walmart... I sure hope nobody in the area wanted to complete the big guy, since I just picked up the only Sabertooth. 1 whole set and a 2nd Magneto were on the pegs. at least that's one more tick off the Exiles roster.

dont know if this is the right place, but its a marvel figure i got creative with over the weekend

we will start with the "before" pic:

DSCN3337_2_e739ff2c-6445-4484-b93d-f819c9198329_1024x1024.jpg

remember him? 2002 (i think) toy biz marvel legends ghost rider! a so-so figure in my opinion, but i like it. well, i dont like the paint job. it all almost looks to be one color. all that dry brushing or whatever they did makes it all just run together. so i decided to finally do something about it:

100_0190.JPG

ah! much better! can now tell where everything starts and stops

100_0191.JPG

i did a coat of black paint on the jacket, then some dry brushing of some gray to make it look a bit worn. wasnt quite happy so i did a further dry brushing of black very lightly over it again to try to make it blend in better

100_0192.JPG

same for the pants, but in reverse. gray, dry brush with some black and again with more gray

100_0193.JPG

dry brushed some brown on the boots to simulate mud/dirt and gray for wear

100_0195.JPG

i really like how the head turned out. base coat of white, followed by dry brushing some black to bring out the detail and to make it look a bit burnt. his heads on fire after all!

100_0196.JPG

back shot. this pic has been sharpened to help bring out the detail better. not fond of how the fire hair turned out though

next, i HAD to do something about that laughably tiny chain he came with. no self respecting motorcycle demon would be caught dead with such a measly thing

100_0199.JPG
100_0200.JPG

picked up a black chain in the walmart craft section and painted it silver. i couldve picked up a silver one, but youll see in the next pic why i didnt. anyway, may scratch it up with something to make it look used

100_0205.JPG

this is why i didnt get a silver chain. i have some kind of wire i ran through the links to make it more poseable. as i painted the chain, it also got the wire so its better hidden inside it ;) it can still be seen, but it doesnt stick out as much as it would. this chain is actually a separate one from the one above. i wanted one for loose poses and to wrap around his torso, and another for more dramatic ones. could probly get the same effects with one chain, but this is the way i went. got plenty of chain and wire left so i can experiment. would also like to figure a way to make it look like some of the chain is on fire

100_0204.JPG

so there it is. the improved marvel legends ghost rider! at least i think hes improved anyway lol got in my mind to do a kind of graveyard diorama for him now, but ive never done anything like that so i dont know

THAT GHOST RIDER IS FANTASTIC. Great colors, and I like the new chain.

And for a near twenty-year-old figure, the mold holds up.

thanks :) it came out much better than i thought it would. especially considering i havent done a lot of figure customizing. done a lot of transformers though, so i guess that experience carried over

may be doing a graveyard diorama soon (well, A grave anyway...). surprisingly-especially at this time of year-i cant find a small tombstone, but i have an idea how to make one

can anyone recommend a good, cheap-ish legends-esque captain america and thor? ive given up on sh figuarts (too expensive when it comes to it) but still need these 2. lost the shield on the 2001 cap i have so hes out, and i just dont like the thor i have (its some kind of viking thor or something). and i think id prefer comic versions instead of movie ones

or if anyone has a spare legends sized cap shield just laying around...

Cheapish may be the hard part here. There should be an Upcoming Marvel Legends 20th anniversery Cap coming soon that might be about 30ish bucks. Not sure of Thor though, it'd depend on classic or modern versions. I know there was a classic Thor about a year or so ago for the 80th Ann. Marvel line. But finding any on the cheap maybe an issue now.

Looks like Amazon has that Classic Thor for about 60 bucks.

Yeah, next year is supposed to have a celebration year for the 20th Anniversary of Marvel Legends. Captain America was shown, and typically Iron Man and Thor aren't far behind (especially with Thor: Love and Thunder due out next year as well)

i did see that cap, but i really dont like the holes in the shield if i dont have those bits on it. i imagine theyd be easy to fill, but matching the paint may be tough. ill have to keep an eye out for it (if someone could post when its close to coming out itd be really helpful!). still hope i can find that missing shield before then...

i just ordered the 8oth thor mentioned above. more than i wanted to pay, but it looks like a great figure
