One thing I noticed in the reviews of Gambit, Hasbro still can’t understand physics.  They arranged Gambits cards like he’s throwing them forehand instead of back.  I mean, it’s possible to do that but he more commonly tosses them back away from his body and not across it.

It's a lovely figure, very well made and with good crisp paint apps.

Just wish mine hadn't shown up missing the head.

Apparently I am blind, finally found the head after pulling everything out of the tray.

Just a slight oversight.

Looked up an unboxing video, dumpted out the tray, and finally found the head.

Yeah, it was nice of them to put everything in those soft plastic bags, but easy to miss the head if you didn't dig them all out.

The bits are so sharp by the time it got to me the knees and a few other bits had poked holes in their respective covers.

Thankfully the tray and plastic cover are well fit to the figure.

Something similar happened to me.  I bought a VF-22 Miria from YJA, and the antenna was missing when it arrived.  I ordered a shapeways replacement for it, but that didn't fit well at all, and I was quite bummed about the whole experience.

It wasn't until almost a year later when I decided to take the gunpod out of the tray, when I saw the white antenna sitting right underneath.  Let me just say it was a really pleasant surprise (and my stupid mistake to have missed it), as the VF-22 looks incomplete without it.

Got a Corgi Predator Ju-87G-1 “Kanonenvogel” off eBay for $38 shipped. It’s an excellent model for a steal!

For anyone getting Marvel Legends Jubilee, be careful not to lose the pairs of glasses that are included separately.  She comes packaged with one right behind the other in the tray.  I was fortunate to have noticed without any getting lost.

Just my first post here on these boards, but I've been lurking for quite a long while ever since I accidentally got hooked on the first valk purchase sometime ago and went straight deep, deep down the rabbit hole.. :p

Currently, am just sort of trawling through & acquiring the varied valk representations of different eras.. the older Yamato 1/48s, Yamato 1/60s, Frontier 1/60 renewals, to the current HMRs, DX Chogokins and Arcadia valks.

One of more recent acquisitions were from apparently the much maligned Bandai's VF100 range, but thanks to Jenius's invaluable web site resource, I've managed to identify the VF100 Fighter-only VF-25F & VF25S with their special metallic paint. I gotta say despite the lightweight feel, the paint app and tampos just fantastic!

Pics below (I wish I have the photography skills of some of the more esteemed members & enablers here to better highlight the metallic paint).

Congrats.

Thanks guys. I now know what I have been missing out on. The Glaug has a little paint scratch just under the rear of the right leg joint, otherwise both units are in very good condition.

Controversial post ahead.....

I loved Jim Lee, Mcfarlane etc when they started out. Their style was realistic, artsy and layouts were gorgeous.
But then it became all abt the same poses and art style. 

I do acknowledge Jim Lee's contribution to the xmen.

For me artists were the best when the good writers took precedent.
Chris claremont era was the best for me, when cockrum, bryne, leonardi, romita, simonson and countless other (BWS!) rotated in and out of the xmen.

Jim Lee was part of Claremonts run too, though.

Ah yes, but an underlying sentiment that indirectly caused claremont to exit, as art took precedent.
Eye candy like that took time to draw, and claremont got frustrated at the pace of work/storyline slowed down to give priority to artists instead.

That seemed to be a reason, tho i wasnt following much after that...

Given Claremonts plans for the X-Men I'm glad they bumped him out.  His story ideas into the 90's were not good IMO.

Looks good.  Maybe not as articulated but in my opinion the old school “Powered Armor” goes well with them as well.
