Nice little statue this… arrived yesterday by courier… number 639 of 4000. I am still looking for the painted mini and the fullsize chrome!

Animation Cel


This is an real animation cel from Pryde Of The X-Men cartoon. It is pretty nice because it is Piotr in his X-Men costume. Shame they didn’t finish this head though.   This was a nightmare to obtain from ebay – the seller really gave me the run-around, and it wasn’t cheap… but it is a […]

This is the regular cover by Cassaday.

Loose II


My local comic shop were selling off the remaining Super Hero Squad two-packs – so I picked this up for two bucks and opened it up (the packaging was pretty beat up). I gave Angel away to my nephew and Colossus is now sitting on top of my pc 🙂

These are pretty weird little… statues. Part of some Marvel ‘Power’ game, you buy the box not knowing which character you got. I bought the Colossus on ebay, so that I didn’t have to buy loads in the off chance I get Big C. There are clear crystal versions as well which are rarer – […]
