Ah, didn't know they threw an extra one in. No idea why anyone would be buying extra tentacles then.
Dont kink shame me.
Amazon finally shipped my Modular Iron Man. About time!
Where most were probably pretty Meh on this Guy, this one has a special significance for me. It was the Toybiz VG that got me back into collecting in 1996 as part of whatever Spidey Line they shoehorned him into.
That was just a neon-green Iron Man repaint but it meant a lot to me, and lead to a lifetime of collecting.
The prospect of finally getting an "accurate" VG is a big deal. And........
It's full of BS QC issues like this........warped and overly marbled plastic.
Mold degradation gaps at most of the cuts....
Deformed blobs on the right foot - it's not paint that's the plastic.
And the kicker is that line on the mask that makes it look like he hasn't pulled the Speedos over his snout straight.
Yeah, I wanted this one to be special, and it's using bits of the shittier-than-shit Hyperion type buck that should have been consigned to the flames years back. With all the mold deg that comes with it.
But the metallic green is at least nice.
Not to be recommended.
You know what would make a nice diorama piece? A giant, miscolored Dr. Doom head.
Seriously I wonder how much that's going to sell for, because I can't imagine who would pay a bunch of money for it. But if someone's buying...
Hey, no shame my man if that's what you need those tentacles for. Now, are you using them on yourself or someone else?
Right? If it's selling for decent prices next year I may pop it up on eBay once my Galactus arrives.
I'm getting 2, so I don't think I'll need extras, but I planning to have some of the parts laying on the ground. Having the damaged hand on the sentinel and then the regular hand cut off on the ground with the tentacle holding someone. I'd love to fashion like ripped out wires etc to plug into the bottom of a head.
I thought of buying another head to damage them more, or more specific like cut holes for Wolverine's claws and try to make it so he can hold himself in there.
Before the Sentinel campaign ended, I made a deal with a backer to buy one of his battle damaged heads for a diorama.
I purchased two more Ultrons off of Gamestop's website, alongside Quicksilver and (Green) She Hulk.
I think I have an illness for ordering Ultron figures. I have five now.
Funny, just saw two ultrons in the wild today
The one I got was perfect.
Everything lined up and fitting right.
Web Man is on his way to me! I love how obscure Hasbro went with this character. Also helps that I love evil versions of heroes!
I have five of both figures that come with the Sentinel for trade, when I receive my pieces.
The marbling at least is just a matter of fact with that type of semi-translucent, metallic-infused plastic. It shows flow lines. Nothing can be done about it other than painting over it.
And then ultimately, there is going to be some luck of the draw involved, as those imperfections are endemic to working with soft PVC instead of a harder plastic like ABS. Some flaws you can try to work out with some applied heat to allow you to reset/reshape the warped parts.
The extra blob of plastic on the foot is a fairly rare sort of error, though.
About to unbox
Wait, people will buy the additional heads too? I don't have a use for the Tri-Sentinel head, so I might just keep one and sell the other two off then.
i'll be jumping on Darwin and Maggot
Well if you want to break your figures then that’s your own business.
Personally I’ll be putting mine on a shelf
Not to mention the fact they have him a freaking handgun when his primary weapon for that model was always his palm repulsors.
I mean, not that I really needed yet another set of repulsor blast effects but he really needed to come with a pair of repulsor-firing hands.
