Laser Cel


This arrived today! It’s a Marvel Comics Limited Edition Laser Cel produced in 2005. Features awesome X-Men art by Leinil Francis Yu and comes complete with a Certificate of Authenticity and is limited to only 500 worldwide. It was designed and produced by Lasermach Inc.

ATTENTION! Colossus appears in the first issue of Wolverine: First Class (and makes a blink-and-you’ll-miss-it appearance in #2 as well)

Picked up the first fifty issues of Classic X-Men / X-Men Classic. It cost £1.34 per comic – which was not as cheap as I’d like but I figured that to get them in one lot would be easier and cheaper in the long run. It is a nice NM set – lots of great art […]

Colossus #1


Finally added this to the collection; Colossus #1, a one-shot published in 1997 with art by Hitch/Neary. Also picked up Giant-Size X-Men #4, which has Colossus on the cover (with Banshee, Marvel Girl, Cyclops, Wolverine, Nightcrawler, Storm & Thunderbird). And… House Of M #1 Madureira Convention Variant (which has Big C in it).

It was bound to happen eventually – bought this ‘magnet’ on ebay – and was throughly disappointed with it – at least it was only $10. Not sure if you can tell (I couldn’t off their pics) but it is a piece of printed paper (signed by Art Adams) slipped into the cheapest looking holder. The […]

Toyfare #92


The FedEx truck called by today with this. Wizard’s Toyfare magazine, issue 92, with a nice homage cover of Giant-Size X-Men #1. Made up of the Marvel Legends line of figures – although there is no Thunderbird and a wrong era costumed Cyclops – it is well done. I still don’t own a Marvel Legends Colossus […]

Here’s a nice set I picked up on ebay – a tribute to the new genesis of mutants in Giant-Size X-Men #1 – a six figure set by Toy Biz. This was released in 1998 – it is in very fine condition – just a few rubbed corners and one sticky patch where the price […]

This arrived in the mail today and required my own John Hancock to release it into my care. I am now on a first name basis with both the delivery guys, which is a little embarrassing. Anyway, what we’ve got here is a Trading Card released by Upper Deck for the X-Men: The Last Stand movie. […]

There was something awesome in the mailbox today… Statue Number 5 aka Bust Number 1. It is the Astonishing X-Men: Colossus Resin Bust (Painted editon) by Diamond Select Toys sold at Wizard World Los Angeles. Quiet a mouthful. It is based on John Cassaday’s Colossus from the pages of Astonishing X-Men. The one I have […]
