Star Wars Black Series Deadpool Boba Fett by FanBoys Toys – this mash-up might not be your thing, but with a new Star Wars movie coming out at the end of this year, and a Deadpool movie on its heels in February, maybe it’s time these two characters get the bodyslide by two treatment – ends Thursday, April 9, at 9:02PM PST
In AFP’s Border Patrol, we scour active eBay auctions for customized action figures that you won’t want to let slip by!
As much as I’m digging on Marvel Legends for 2015, I’d be remiss if I didn’t highlight the other expressions from Hasbro’s Marvel team before shutting down for the night. In figures, the ones nearest to my heart are the Marvel Universe and Marvel Titan Series figures.
The sale is for today (January 13) only, so get your orders in while you can. Some folks who subscribe to our email updates have pointed out that these emails have been coming out a day late, causing you to miss out on these one day only sales. So I’ve moved the delivery time to the afternoon. In addition, please know you can follow us on Facebook, Google+, and Twitter for instant updates. Happy shopping!
From time to time I get questions from readers on where to find stands. Back in the day, McFarlane sold them online, but stopped several years back. Pro Tech stands have been the de facto stand-in, but start at 44 cents a pop, although they get cheaper in big quantities. But at 24 cents a stand, the EE deal is pretty damn good; the cheapest the Pro Tech stands get are 33 cents each, but you have to buy over 500!
EE has got five color options – clear, white, tan gray, and black. These should work with all your Hasbro 4-inchers – G.I. JOEs, Marvel Universe, Star Wars, and Indiana Jones (although I don’t know many who have these) – and 4-inchers from other lines, like Playmates Star Trek figures.
Hopefully we’ll see some better deals as the week progresses, but for now, cheap stands are a decent start. Happy shopping!
I’ve been a fan of ActionFigurePics.com for a few years. I’ve mostly kept up with news and pics of Marvel Universe 3.75 figures as they were issued. What inspired me to do my own custom was a post on editing the Magneto figure that came in a 2 pack. I have that figure as well and plan on making my version soon. As you already know, too many of the Marvel Universe figs have first issues that have stunted or deformed bodies. Wolverine was my choice for my first custom because I still believe they have yet to make a completely satisfying figure of him. They are either too small or hunch-backed with a stunted torso.
