    I really don't get the deal with the "Homecoming" issue people are having. I'm pretty sure I've read multiple comics from both Marvel and DC titled "Homecoming." A quick search on Amazon in the books...

    I agree, those teaser pics were barely worth looking at. If you saw the various Mosquitor teasers that were being sent to Pixel Dan before he came out, these were not much better. I mean, I saw them,...

    I'll have to see how she looks in person, but right now my only big issue with her is I'm not real fond of the pink hair, so I might paint it red. Of course, if I do that, then her two-tone dress...

    In the 3 years I've been subbing, the only figure I can recall having what I would consider to be a serious QC problem was Spikor (frozen shoulders and some paint rubbing on his triceps). Man-E-Faces...

    Yeah, chopped her head in half. I do have some pics of the process that will hopefully make it clear. Basically you have to separate the two halves, then cut out the plastic ridge inside each face...

    Thanks. Yeah, forward and down slightly to cover the first row of beads on the choker seems to be the sweet spot. Of course, to move her face down I had to cut away at the neck-chin, so she won't be...

    Okay, curiosity won out over caution, and I cut her head apart. And I'm glad I did. This isn't final, but I feel it is extremely promising. Other opinions highly welcome; it takes a little precision...

    Man, you've been busy! Or maybe I've just been lazy :hmgrin:

    Either way, let me try to catch up on the guys I still missed first.

    Octavia: I really like the sculpt of her, and the leotard thing...

    That's my bad, I should have taken a few pics in natural lighting as well before I painted her. The thing is without shining a light directly at her, she already looks better than in my pics due to...

    Okay, so having her in hand, it is indeed not as horrible as the super zoomed flash pics made it look. In fact, at least with the Rebellion face (my preferred one anyway), I would consider it on the...

    According to the first post in this thread, everything from May to August was a "transition" period that had both of them working on the figures to some extent, with NA Skeletor being the last figure...

    Yup, I missed tons. Wanted to get give my thoughts on the most recent ones when I saw this, and wasn't sure if I'd be able to make time for the others. I've got a minute now though, so, working...

    Alrighty, some more awesome pics.

    I don't get why people refer to it as the 200x head. It doesn't look anything like his 200x appearance. If anything, I think it is more Filmation inspired, apart from the eyes.

    I prefer the...

    Yeah, I was kind of surprised by that too. Maybe Dan's were just stuck or something?

    King Hiss's overlay is pretty easy to get off with a hairdryer, for what that's worth. Of course, his overlay was glued in the back, and only to itself, not to the actual figure, so that might...

    Abnett really is turning this series into something enjoyable. I hope he stays on for a while. I know a lot of people gave up on it completely while Giffen was writing. I actually skipped a couple of...

    Nice review. His arm cannon is not compatible with the other arm attachments? That seems kind of ridiculous to me. I was kind of looking forward to giving him the black HH attachments.

    The price, including shipping, is way too high for these. The shipping adds a substantial percentage to the base price. The Grayskull set piece is a nice...

    She-Ra: At first I was surprised she ranked so low, but then I have to agree with your reasoning. Two releases to get the figure "right" is kind of ridiculous, and slits in skirts should be standard...
