In our first installment of Border Patrol for 2014, we’ve got a Marvel variant that could definitely be made and two DC variants that should have been made.
- Marvel Legends Superior Venom by glennwebman69 – if Hasbro could make a Marvel Legernds Superior Spider-Man (currently hitting shelves), then they should start thinking about making Superior Venom – after all, it’s the best thing to happen to our favorite symbiote in the comics, just like Superior Spider-Man was the best thing to happen to our favorite web-slinger – ends Jan 16, 2014 16:19:02 PST
- DC Universe Classics Green Lantern Kyle Rayner by FUMan Studio – back when DC Universe Classics was going strong, Mattel released a Kyle Rayner figure that was pretty ok – it just wasn’t the iconic Rayner from when he was part of Grant Morrison’s JLA – this is a big hole in the line-up, especially since Mattel is releasing a hook-handed Aquaman in its last gasp of DCUC this year – ends Jan 11, 2014 06:00:43 PST
- DC Universe Classics Red Hood Jason Todd by Mint Condition Customs – don’t get me wrong – I like Grant Morrison, but that doesn’t mean that every action figure made should be from his books – case in point, the Red Hood Mattel released in the Club Infinite Earths subscription was the one featured for just a couple of issues during Morrison’s recent Batman and Robin run – but pretty much everyone I know would have been happier with this version – ends Jan 12, 2014 19:11:12 PST
In AFP’s Border Patrol, we scour active eBay auctions for customized action figures that you won’t want to let slip by!
Bonus – here’s a video describing the Superior Venom custom. Cool stuff!
