Are you sure that Adam Warlock wouldn't work for Dozy's custom Andy?It just seems absolutely perfect as a likeness?Anyone got both the MS Ghost Rider and the Warlock fig so we could get a comparison?

It would work from a sculpt perspective, however Marvel Select figures are in a larger scale than Legends (a pet peeve of mine....) so the head may look to tiny on the larger scale body.

I own Ghost Rider and have Warlock coming via eBay soon, so can post some pics when it arrives to compare.

Sounds good,be keen to see that.Sometimes you can get away with heads in the variances of 6 inch scales body-wise.
Saying that though another similar style Head is the Movie Flash Gordon figure.He's a larger scale like the Ross Justice figs.

Mr Sinister! Yeah cool!

I'm starting to make a list of characters that can easily be modded. Iron Fist and Bullseye are also fairly generic and with Mr Sinister in the mix it would cover small, medium and large body types! Sweet! Thanks FB!

Actually not yet. I'm also big into Warhammer 40k so I have all the painting gear and the enthusiasm. Just in the planning stages  Grin

I'm actually struggling for base figures. I have a spare Hercules and Banshee but I'm off to Toys 'Rnt Us tomorrow to check out wrestling figures (never thought I'd say that).

Don't forget to check out places like Go-lo. I found a couple of wrestling figures there on the weekend for $7, rather than $13-18 a piece.

True!

I did the rounds of Westfield in Canberra today and things are more dire than ever. I actually wonder if the end of the financial year being a quarter away means people don't get much new stock? What am I saying? Toy retailing is dead!

Yeah, the joy of the toy run died for me a long time ago. That's why I suffered apoplexy when I found those B&B figures at Kmart awhile ago. Once upon a time I would enter Westfield Belco or the Canberra Centre without stopping at all the haunts, but now I don't bother to go out of my way, because I know the result.

When I think of all the generic lines of figures that aren't being stocked it's very depressing. Even just the DC and Marvel lines!!!!!
ARRGGGHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH!  Angry

I've banged on about this before, but I blame the movie crap. If I was a buyer at TRU or Kmart and I still had Batman Begins and Superman Returns stuff on my shelves and I didn't know anything about the stuff, I'd stop stocking DC toys too. The Iron Man toys sold pretty well but there's still Hulk stuff everywhere too. Pfaugh.

Oh cool! I'm not very familiar with them but from memory a lot of them aren't very "cut". The JAKKS stuff is very average.
Well I'll just throw it out there, a couple of the customs I'm thinking of doing are Attuma and TigerShark (both Marvel)
