Black Friday finds

If you managed to get out of the turkey induced coma you probably went shopping.
Lucky I did and I finally got a personal mini holy grail. Now you have to understand, I don't scour stores on the reg for new toys, I just walk in on any given day and see what they have. So to find ANYTHING that I'm looking for on a Black Friday is pretty amazing, and my find is pretty amazing.

Yes my personal mini holy grail is the Marvel Universe Secret Wars 2-pack with Dr. Doom. While MOST people seem to have him, I had yet to get him. I've never seen one in the "wild" and I check 2 Toy R Us' whenever I get the chance. Obviously scalpers and kids usually found them before me but that was okay because my patience paid off. I just walked in, saw that TRU had NO new figures other than a Team X Wolverine (yay..., ANOTHER Wolverine... ) and a peg full of 2-packs with a Hulk/ Cyclops in the front. Feeling that they MAY have something I decided to check the peg and there, lo and behold was the mighty Dr. Doom with his pal Absorbing Man. I quickly took him off the peg and I was off to acquire my find. So now not only did I find Dr. Doom but I've completed my Marvel Universe Secret Wars collection, something I'll never do with the Greatest Battle 2-packs. After all I really don't need more Iron Man and Wolverine figures.
Who is this Zod?
Kneel before DOOM!

The evil that lies within

Guess what I got in the mail today?

It's funny but until you actually hold an Inhumanoid figure in your hands you have NO idea how big these figures are. Makes me wish I still had Krusher. Does anyone remember Krusher?

Deep Cover update

Awhile back I mentioned that was working on a custom of a
Japanese Transformers exclusive Deepcover.
So I thought I'd share some of the progress.

Here are the pieces I cobbled together from the Sideswipe that I ended up warping when I attempted to dye him black and the currently available Red Alert. As you can see I still had an undyed roof from Sideswipe.

After applying 91% Isopropyl Alchohol to the red paint areas It came off REALLY easily.
After awhile I got to this point.

Next update: black paint applied.
