This week’s customs are all high up on my want-but-can’t-have list:
- Marvel Legends SIF by JLA – I really do wish that Hasbro had gotten on the ball and made a Thor Marvel Legends wave or two – although I’m generally not enthused by using DC Universe Classics figures for Marvel characters (and vice versa), this custom really works out well – I’ll have to compare the sizes to newer ML Thor, though, because I wonder how Sif measures up – ends Dec 07, 2013 20:49:30 PST
- WWE Elite Hulk Hogan by 1more2come – this is a relatively simple custom but fills a gap in all our Mattel WWE Legends collections – with Hulk recently re-upping with TNA, it’d take a miracle to get him in the Mattel WWE line-up, even if it’s just a flashback figure – it’s too bad Marvel Toys / Toy Biz is no longer in the game with its TNA figures – ends today, Dec 03, 2013 18:47:19 PST
- 1/6 Scale Blade Runner Rick Deckard by thebatmancollector – this custom combines elements from Sideshow Collectibles, Hot Toys, and costuming from Android Hunter – I think there’s enough of a cult following for Blade Runner that Sideshow or Hot Toys could pick it up – if Sideshow can make a Snake Plissken, certainly there’d be more options for figures from Blade Runner – ends today, Dec 03, 2013 15:16:18 PST
