    Wow they look great together.
    From a distance you really can't tell there's anything wrong with Rogue she almost looks perfect :)

    I'd like to get a few more PF's but I can't justify them...I'm already having pre-order remorse for the Joker PF but I know when he's here that will all pass.

    Yeah my brother loves Gambit...I'm more of a Cyclops, Nightcrawler fane personally.

    Hate Wolverine really feel he's overrated.

    Not that I can think of...you've named the best there.

    Ah I guess that's why he's so expensive then, I always thought a second head was the exclusive part not the hand (which you obviously need for this statue to be truly awesome)

    I cant see me having near £1000 to spend on one in the foreseeable future so I guess that's me out, these X-Men PF's will have to be something I admire from afar :(

    Wow, are they really selling for that sort of cash? Glad I picked mine up when it came out, maybe I should've ordered the Joker PF after all.

    From what I can tell they seem to be going for $800 on eBay but none of the sellers ship to the UK, I guess that could be got around if you contacted the buyer directly but then you've got shipping on top (god knows how much that would be)

    If you ever think of selling yours let me know ;)

    As for Joker given his exclusive is a dodgy looking head I dont think you've missed out :p
    • Thanks Thanks x 1

    so the brown elephant looking thing to the left was in that box or was it the really exclusive Sue Storm ;)

    at least you'll have something to sleep in there when your collection takes over the rest of your house :)

    If you haven't turned to stone yet, it's time for the R-rated stuff ;)

    She has removable armour plates, i've used my amazing skills in MS paint to prevent photobucket from banning the pics, so just use your imagination :devil:

    if your quick you can see the an uncensored pic here before it's removed no doubt

    The box made me panic for a bit, but it was all just wrapping ;), I can still fit into my room.

    It's all Medusa! They really were ambitious with making sure she was protected, there's a trail of polystyrene up the stairs still.

    it's quite roomy in the box, perhaps i'll rent it out :laugh:

    Nothing special but picked up one of those cheap no name bodies everyone talking about on freaks

    Wee bit loose round the waist but stable enough to hold a pose :)

    Ordered on the 3 of feb which was the weekend so not bad on the shipping :)
    £17 posted

    Finally got my Classic Pred today, he really is a sight to behold (sorry for the crappy iPhone pic but my shots are rubbish anyway so thought what the hell)

    [​IMG]

    I've since futzed Arnie a little bit putting his black T-Shirt on because he was looking a little crap next to Pred

    And another shot of my relatively new 1989 Batman which I've recently reposed

    Thanks Quint!

    A few more peices added to the shelves thanks to Lee at CollectiblesDirect, who helped replace a dodgy figure too, fantastic service!

    Apologies if the pics are quite bright, very sunny today.

    anyone here ever ordered from Sideshow then had a Redwood Collections Ltd write to you? I think its regarding my hot toys Superman from November just wanting to check they're 100% before I pay them fedex charge.

    I've only ever had the courier company contact me, if it doesn't tell you 100% that it's connected with your Superman I wouldn't pay. Not until contacting Sideshow first who's CS is fantastic in my experience :)

    if you didn't pay it at the time its probably legit as with a quick google they seem like an actual collection agancy for that sort of thing.... furthest I've ever got was when I forgot to post a cheque that I'd left in my glove box, got a second letter from fedex about a month after the first demanding immeditate payment or the details would be passed to a collection agency

    turns out I hadn't paid the FedEx charge and letters had been going to the wrong address until post man figured it out!
