Stupid Sexy Night Viper


Oh Night-Viper, I got you last year along with Yellow-Jinx and the RZA along with the rest of the case you came in (oh woe-is-me for another Lady-jaye, Colton, Cyber Ninja and Alley-Viper).

All in all, totally worth it, been thinking of maybe grabbing one or two more, they go for a premium and at that price you'll need to wipe the sweat from you forehead.

I just can't get beyond Radardome.

Ha-ha, time for another Mega Bloks post (I've not forgotten my 1st love of G.I Joe). This time it's the other new thing I got this week, the Dome Battleground set.


You get: 1 sweet building that stars off rectangularly then gets crazy once you build the roofside goodies.


A really cleverly built Predator style drone complete with 4 missiles. You to supply your  own stand for it unless you just clip it onto the top of the dome structure.


A nice little sentry turret you can deploy to mow down unfortunates.




You get 3 superb figures, with one being a named character 'Sandman' who has a unique helmeted head sculpt (looks like the Delta force style helmet) and some extra paint applications on his gear.
The other two are a gas masked guy and masked soldier, you can never have enough of these guys or the parts used to make them. All 3 figures have the longer trouser leg instead of tucking them into the tops of the boots. You also get the usual accessories and care package container along with a bonus scale laptop.

I hope this is the 1st of many large scenery sets they'll put out over the coming years. Now I have to go plan out a small brick built combat area...

Ya dun goofed



Time for the 1st of a few April posts, mostly of those sweet 2inch Micro-action figures courtesy of Mega Bloks. Lets start off with some silly stuff today:

Now we all know Ghosts are serious business...

  
 



I seriously hope they reuse that balaclava head some more, in green or white and with the skin showing.

Bonus:

Just Deserts ops.

It's still March, and I'm still loving these Mega Blok figure.






 And I have another project on the horizon (I should get a move on my 1/18 fantasy projects). It'll require many custom heads and casting as well as special one off customs for doing specific characters from the game series (MGS1/2/3/4/PW/GZ and beyond). Some will require those upcoming Halo figures with the new articulation.

But here is one page of ideas, Genomes and MGS1 Solid Snake.

50 years of G.I Joe

I had to do something to celebrate a toyline that's two decades older than I am (ARAH was my joe).


And I'd been meaning to make a Joe Colton who is a mix of the 3 eras he's appeared in (Basic original, bearded adventurer and ARAH inspired fiction).




Head: RotS Obi Wan
Torso: Cobra Island Ripcord with MU neck joint
Arms: Kiwinn
Legs: 3-Pack Beach Head w/ Ultimate Firefly knees.

Orc Raider custom

One done, this Orc being a lieutenant of a raiding party, so he'll be more likely to escape when things go sour and to bring bad news to his bosses.





A light outfit devoid of armor makes him more of a scout.




 I rather like the skull knee pads (thank's MU Kraven for the legs). Any name suggestions?
