    Awesome pics Spikey.

    Love Raph...very tempted to pick him up off Play now.

    He's always been my bestest turtle & the whole thing just looks immense.

    Had to cancel Wolvie,Sabes,Gambit and I'M just too much at once and getting married soon. He looks good Spike but I actually think I prefer the comiquette version.

    Well somehow Sabretooth arrived today but Gambit didn't, however they will were not due until monday so I can't complain that one got here early! Sabretooth is great! I think I still prefer Wolvie personally but I love both of the heads, great sculpts! I got a very low EX - 26 of 650 as well which is the lowest I've ever got! Anyway here are some pics! I'm loving the new style bases which the printed image!

    He looks great :thumbsup:, the two look good together, should get my Wolverine today, I don't think I've ever got an edition no. that low, certainly not below 100, did sabretooth arrive with any problems? how is your wolverine issue progressing?

    Ss are behind by a week so they said they will get back to me by next tue. Sabre has a tiny bit missing off one claw but other than that he's fine! The base is huge! Just emailed them about the claw, it was packaged really well I must say!

    Wolverine looks great especially like this pic :smashin:

    [​IMG]

    not that keen on sabertooth but then again I've never been that keen on the character either..... but I bet they compliment each other and look very well side by side :thumbsup:

    ps same thing happened me a month or two ago, from a combined shipment one arrived on the friday and the other on the monday, the second had a few fedex labels stuck on top of each other so worried for a short while about getting two invoices for the full combined price but thankfully that didn't happen

    Thanks mate! They both look great together! SS finally got back to me about Wolvie parts, said they need a further 3-4 days to hear back about getting the 3 bits replaced, the belt is very minor so I can live with that but the heads (esp EX) need replacing so I hope they can sort me out! Thanks for the tip about Fedex, I even asked him to check if he had the other one on the van but he said it's probs still in customs! Oh well I'll have him waiting after work on monday. One thing that I hope is that the energy EX card arrives intact, apparently one guy was put on a wait list for a replacement EX hand! So it looks like they won't have any left to replace with. No way I want a damaged one so I'll have to hunt down a mint second hand one if thats the case and SS can't sort me out. Cross your fingers it arrives mint for me on monday!! :D

    well that sucks , as my ex enery hand on gambit has a tiny little nick in the paint. Its hardly noticeable, but Its just one of those things where you pay top money for peices of this calibre only to be ruined by imperfections. You want these things to be perfect with the amount you spend on them.

    So you say, they are running out of spare ex hands for gambit then?

    Well I got my gambit and he's arrived safe and sound! No chips this time and amazingly the energy hand arrived intact, however I woud not fancy sending it to someone its VERY fragile! But it looks great and definately worth paying the extra for! This has to be my favourite piece I've seen from SS yet. The base is massive and could be easily used as a dinner plate its that big! The only issue I've got with mine and yet again is very annoying is that the lining of his coat has ripped inside so I'll have to get a replacement sorted for that. Thankfully it's a minor thing that can be covered up until they replace it!

    A must own piece if you like X-men! Roll on Cyclops!

    Here he is anyway, 736 of 750!

    Haha, yes it does mate! Did you get yours sorted? Btw SS are replacing the chipped EX head for wolvie and the belt. However the reg head which has a very small chip they don't have any replacements left so I've accepted their $25 refund! I can get tiny bit painted by a pro for less than that! So happy days!

    Thanks mate, it's great in person. My only worry is how easy it will snap! It doesn't exactly feel sturdy! They should have made it out of rubber so it isn't likely to break!

    I hope they've done this for the upcoming Carnage comiquette, Those tendrils will snap like twigs otherwise, Gambit looks great! Glad Sideshow are getting you most of your replacements.

    Thanks guys, I wondered if someone could help me out and suggest a high street shop that I can get some black acrylic paint from to touch up Wolvie?

    Do you have a 'Games Workshop' near you? They do all sorts of paints for models etc.

    Thanks mate, I'll give them a call later :) Got one in town I think. Are you getting Gambit then? Best of the bunch in my view! Closely followed by Wolvie! :thumbsup:

    He looks awsome, but I'm not too familier with the character, I'm looking forward to seeing what they do with Rogue, Cyclops and Storm though :thumbsup:
