For this edition of Border Patrol, we’ve got three custom action figures from the kick-ass Netflix Daredevil series:
Marvel Legends Netflix Daredevil (battle-damaged) and Nobu (the Hand) by moomoo1366: This pair of figures are being sold separately but would make a great 2-pack. I’ve seen quite a few black-suited Daredevil customs, but this is the first with battle-damage. Fitting, because it’s Nobu from the Hand who messed him up. Daredevil ends Wednesday, May 27 at 12:23PM PST. Nobu ends Wednesday, May 27 at 12:16PM PST.
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!
