    You know I think the problems I have with Behold Galvatron are much the ones I imagined I'd have with the Cel Shaded ones - it looks great in static photos but in 3D the flat patterns just look... off to me. Also probably not helped that in the stock photos I was expecting him to be darker purple than he ended up as in hand... maybe it's just a lighting thing? Or specifically I think he'd look better if the light purple parts were in a dark purple.

    Edit: AHA I think I've found WHY I thought that plastic was darker:

    Granted the other stock photos on Pulse have the more pinkish solid plastic but still... I guess this was a render or something?

    Looks like a real figure photographed to me, it could be a proto and not the final figure, though it could also/instead be the professional lighting used - the high illumination used in professional photography can do wiggy things to the colour balance of their subject.

    Oh, I know she is. I meant if they put them in the MCU in live actor format. Apart from the fact she's now in Hawkeye, she looks bugger all like the character.

    Yeah, probably lighting. In some bits it does look a little pinker.

    I’ve always thought Chloe Grace Moretz would be a good Spider-Gwen honestly, or even just Gwen Stacy. Think she’d have good chemistry with Tom.

    The distortion of professional lighting is always at the back of my mind when I look at TF promo galleries, ever since I was scouring the Takara Metroplex ones to try and figure out what backing the LG-EX stickers would have, I was expecting flat white but they turned out to be mirror-back so it would seem they either lit them in such a way that it whited out the silver, or it was a stunt set of plain backed stickers applied, used because the stock mirror-backed would be too shiny!
    Also never forget Takara's shenanigans with the ER Prime Proto gallery!

    Miles voice actor Shameik Moore could definitely be a live action version, but it would have to be a grown up Miles - if they want him to be a teen around the same age as the Sony movies Peter Parker, they'll have to recast.

    For Spider-Gwen - Give it about 6-9 months and McKenna Grace will be the right age to play a Spider-Verse Gwen Stacy.

    I wonder if that's why Miles is markedly older in the trailer?

    And yeah, she'd be a good Gwen too...

    That's a pretty cool was of doing it. I do like the fact they don't look like repaints.

    Was having a well below average ebay week this week, but have hit it hard over the weekend and uploaded 160 items (some relists, most new)

    So please, take a second to check out my ebay store links in my sig below (turn that phone sideways mobile browsers) and see of anything catches your fancy!

    Who knew that Tomb Raider hardcover comic collections were worth over £100 each now? Mental.

    Thanks all!

    Supposedly the producers at the comicon where the teaser was shown said that the new film is set about a year after the original - hence why Miles is a little bigger than before.

    Teenage growth spurt, innit?

    So I keep eyeballin' the cheap GAME Rumble/Ratbat to repaint the red guy into an "Enemy" for potential Soundblaster but at the back of my mind there's something rattling around about an upcoming SS Core class Rumble? Have we had any confirmation whether that's a Bayverse bod or a redesigned tape bod to go toe to toe with the new Eject fella type that's coming with Kingdom/Legacy Blaster?

    Only a year? In that trailer he looks about 3 or 4 years older, lol. Must be the growth spurt @Seeaich mentioned, eh?
