I just realized the face of the Inhuman Torch looks like the cheif bad guy from the original WildCats series. what was that chump's name?

I thought that the HOM Hulk was pretty cool looking and I've seen a couple of them loose on ebay for pretty reasonable - this one was a steal at $6.

yep dat's da one.

I just got the Inhuman Torch and Hulk from HOM Box Set - they're both pretty nice. If the IH Torch wa a little bigger he would has the perfect head for Helspont. He's very evil looking - could be some kind of alternate Ghost Rider.

I got this today from my local comic shop for $5 and before I tear into it I was wondering if it's worth anything? colors are a little weird because I used my scanner.

One of the key points to being a customizer:you learn to look past the toy itself and onto the parts that can be stripped from it :lol:

Looks like you hit a pretty good piece there, enough little pieces to make a few good customs

the Prophet was $5 and the Lady Death was $7.

there are a few more oddball things there that he has for cheap I'll probably pick up over time.

yeah even though I got her to practice painting on I think I will attempt to make her into either a softer Red Sonja or maybe a very naughty Scarlet Witch - one you could believe killed a bunch of Avengers. ;)

I've been doing that for so long... I used to go to stores and be like, I could turn that into such and such. That's really how I started customizing. It started with a figure of X-Man I saw and was like, "I could totally turn that into Superboy." And then I saw a Blink figure and went, "I could turn that into Mystique."

ah... good times. :lol:
