new customs this week: General Hordak, Mary Jane, new x-men Cyclops , and Marvel Universe Dazzler

Ho Ho Ho is that time of the year again! here are some of the last customs of this 2009 .
As seen on "the secret of the sword" i made this unique "general Hordak" complete with kidnapped baby Adora.
After the Mattel fiasco of Dec 15th i must admit that my faith in that company's website has been diminished quite a bit. As of this posting I still haven't received King Randor, Goddess and other figures I ordered (but my card HAS been charged)
I used to include little flyers that promoted the website, in the shipments of my store, from now on, I will NOT include any flyers that promote Matty collector. Why? their customer service, the crashed servers, the lack of product, etc etc thank you for my ulcer "CRAPPYCOLLECTOR"!

Well ahem! lets forget abouth the bile now. For the universe fans, i made Dazzler, she is fully articulable and poseable...now if only i had made longshot...

Another fan favorite returns, this time is new x-men Cyclops but to differentiate him from my 2008 figure, this one features a removable "optic Blast" so you can pose him dynamically with your other x-men figures!

Now in the spirit of christmas, I made another Mary Jane, ( I made an early version around June i believe) this time with a removable fabric hat , that can also be interchanged with other figures from the line (as well as other 6 inch figures) as you can see in the pics. You can catch this and more figures , like the newest jlu 6 pack and 3 packs at actionfigures123's auctions on ebay here: http://tinyurl.com/cc6djv

Its been a great year for customs! thank you all for your great support! and Merry Christmas!

The dreaded dc universe classics wave ten...

Now you won't see me posting much about regular figures, but this is something that needs to be said.
After many nights hunting for the dreaded dc univers classics wave 10 figures, I finally found them at wal-marts that were not so "local" mind you, but rather far as hell from my city's wal-marts. Despite affirmations of having "increased the number of orders" placed for this wave, the fact is simple: IT WASN'T ENOUGH!

I probably spent more on gas, energy drinks, and late night snacks (yes i hunted them at night around at 12:00 Am til 6 pm ...) i would have spent much less buying them from some ebay seller.

I live in sunrise Fl, I drove to Boynton Beach, then to friggin Kendall to find these little suckers, raiding more than 23 wal-marts on the way, that were supposedly "eligible to carry this kinds of collectibles" and only 3! (yes people only 3 out of 23 stores!) had them. The joy of collecting became bitter and bitter..not to mention I was almost robbed on a Miami gardens Walmart.
Despite all my efforts i wasn't able to find man-bat so i had to buy it on ebay adding to the frustration . I mean i usually love the thrill of the hunt but this is ridiculous! what is up Mattel? Many collectors are opting out of this line cause they simply cannot find any product! all my local targets carry wave 6 figures to date! your distribution must be really messed up!
Don't get me wrong, the sculpt on the figures is great! the best so far , but i think they should be available to more public without having to spend entire nights driving through 23 stores. where is the love for collectors? where is the "increased number" of orders?
Most associates at Wal-mart where completely incompetent to help me. When asked about the fabled wave, they said things like : "wheezy universal? must be on the shampoo aisle" or "what is on the floor is what we got" or "we do not pick our merchandise, it all comes from corporate"
Now i hope that after this fumble, we do not see ANY wal-mart special waves please, the fans had enough. Now Mattel, you owe me 2 full gas tanks, 7 NOS energy drinks, One breakfast at Sergio's (a cuban restaurant inside of a Hialeah gardens Walmart) and a bottle of Tylenol for the headache you just caused me.

new auctions this week; classics prince adam, Emma frost and scarlet spiderman returns!

First of all, i want to thank all of my facebook friends on the Matty page for their support to my work. Thank you guys!
now this week i have Prince adam with pet cub cringer!, yes he seems to be a popular one, i have had many e-mails congratulating me on the idea, asking me if i will make another one etc . Even customizer Masterenglish sent me his congrats! thank you all
Adam comes with a small cub cringer, swords (half and whole) and battle axe.
For the universe lovers here is the coldest and beautiful of all the x-men: Emma Frost! this one is on the top of my list, she looks awesome. The cape is permanently fixed on the figure, however, she can move her arms freely! don't miss out on this one!
Scarlet spider is back for another round, since so many fans asked for him, so i listened and here he is! he has all the features from the first one. is fully articulable and poseable!
Logan is also back in his x-force uniform with metallic claws!
thats it for this week gang! be sure to check actionfigures123 on ebay here: http://tinyurl.com/cc6djv

new customs this week: SHADOW WEAVER marvel legends rogue and marvel universe Kitty Pryde

Well this post came a little late than usual but still here it is:

For this weekend I have a long time fan favorite : Shadow weaver. Lots of fans wrote me about making this character and although it took me some time (lots of commissions got in the way hehehe) I finally got her made.

She is a one of a kind figure, if someone commissions her in the future it will not be made in this exact form cause of the amount of original
parts it took me to be made.

She comes signed at the bottom by me since this is a one of a kind figure.

On the Marvel Legends side another fan favorite: Rogue this time with a better face and sculpt..The Toy Biz version was a disaster, just look at the face!!

So i believe a new Rogue is in order, many viewers on youtube have liked this figure pretty much like the Jim Lee style Cyclops i made 2 weeks ago. Thank you all so much for your comments and suggestions, they are always welcome!

On the marvel universe line, i have Kitty pryde and a corrected version of the yellow wolverine with better face and metallic claws. you can catch these auctions and more at actionfigures123's auctions on ebay at: http://tinyurl.com/cc6djv

Until next week!
