My Custom Mods [mod 21]: Rookie MISTER MIRACLE

September 27, 2010


Rookie MISTER MIRACLE (Origin) The REV set of Mr. Miracle was a good representation of Scott Free of the New Gods. But I would have preferred that the Rookie be  Scott’s Earth-born protegé Shilo Norman. Here’s what I did: Removed cape portion of sculpt (it seperates from the main body). Filled in resultant gap in […]

Guardians of the Galaxy: Now with more GROOT.

September 25, 2010


Y’all know I love me some Guardians of the Galaxy. Great title that I apparently learned about almost too late (it’s now “on hiatus”— read as: “soft-cancelled” — as of May  2010’s issue #25) that I got interested in because they’d been made into HeroClix. But until Web of Spider-Man, the tallest member of the team […]

My Custom Mods [mod 20]: BROOD (Mutations & Monsters)

September 20, 2010


BROOD (Mutations & Monsters) When the Crisis set did away with the Soaring mechanic in early 2008 and thus the need for flight stands, I jumped at the opportunity to make a slightly more compact version of this huge model: Used a hobby knife to cut sculpt away from flight stand “pancake”. Snapped off flight […]

My Custom Mods [mod 15-19]: SKRULLS!

September 14, 2010


Apologies for the lateness of this update, readers. Although I’ve got a bunch of mod articles in the can, I seem to have forgotten to upload (or forgotten where I uploaded) two of the photos for this extra-large Skrull edition of My Custom Mods. In Secret Invasion, a bunch of characters got both human and […]

Web of Spider-Man pocket checklist now available

September 7, 2010


Since I’ve heard no news of the return of WizKids-printed checklists (as in the sets from Armor Wars through Crisis) in Web of Spider-Man, I’ve made my customary personal PDF version available. And this time I’ve also got slightly prettied-up versions of the ones I did for earlier set available as well. Just click the […]

My Custom Mods [mod 14]: SPIDER-MAN (Secret Invasion)

September 6, 2010


This week, the highly anticipated Web of Spider-Man expansion set releases, featuring a bunch of new Spidey-related pieces. It’s fitting, then, that this week’s featured mod is of the until-now-most-recent Marvel Universe version of the marquee character: SPIDER-MAN  (Secret Invasion) In fairness, this isn’t a bad sculpt. It’s inventive, even striking, and certainly outside the […]
