    Purist Star Wars Figures

    I've tried on a few browsers, but I can't see any of your photos. I think they're private or something.

    I think they're asking for feedback on their suggested figure.
  3. The build is yet another Quinjet. That honestly surprises me. I'm probably going to skip this set, since I'm reasonably happy with the comics Captain Marvel, and I'm sure she's going to get many more figures over the coming years.

    I thought you were trying to emulate the costume from the movie X-Men: Days of Future Past. For that costume, he has torso armor only, and is wearing military-esque fatigues as pants. From the various screenshots, they looked sometimes blue, sometimes black, sometimes a more military brownish/tan, depending on the lighting or filter. But if it's just a more general post-apocalyptic Wolverine, then of course you do whatever you think looks cool. The yellow accents from the Yellowjacket pants do help evoke the traditional Wolverine colors.

    That's pretty good! I'd switch the pants to something more neutral, though.

    [MOC] Hulk (2003)

    Just FYI, the scene with Hulk fighting tanks in a desert was in Ang Lee's Hulk (2003), not the MCU movie The Incredible Hulk (2008). That said, it's cute. Mighty Micros have even weirder proportions than normal minifigures, but at that scale it really works for Hulk.

    Yeah, it does. I'd try changing the arms and legs to solid colors, though; a patterned jacket fits Li's style, but a silly suit doesn't.

    Jones > Wayne >> Moleman Moleman doesn't really work, but there are other torsos that preserve the white/black dichotomy somewhat better, if you're willing to relax your criteria a bit; https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=973pb0532c01#T=S&C=11&O={"color":11,"iconly":0} https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=973pb0940c01#T=S&C=11&O={"color":11,"iconly":0} https://www.bricklink.com/v2/catalog/catalogitem.page?P=973pb2074c01#T=S&C=1&O={"color":1,"iconly":0}

    Marvel Superheroes 2018 - Set Discussion

    I'm fairly confident this one's fake, to be honest. It's an outdoor picture, which would be fine for a leaked figure, but it's also got a Lego "confidential" watermark plastered over it, which tries to suggest it's official. And if that's the case, the weird environment doesn't make sense. The watermark is labeled "2017"; I bet the faker took the watermark from a real leak last year. I don't know how you could possibly identify it as Emma Fuhrmann from that. She's not a famous actress and she doesn't have any notable facial characteristics, and this is just a generic female minifigure. Only if you were trying to start rumors would you "know" who it was. The print looks pretty bad. It also goes all the way to the edges of the torso, which real prints don't really do.

    You ever experiment with some flavor of transparent head in that helmet?

    [MOC] Chitauri Leviathan

    If you're trying to make it less square, I would move up the fins to the middle of the body, rather than hanging off the bottom. That's where they are on the movie's model. Then you can use slopes and curves to make the underside look more serpentine, and the upper side more lumpy and less angular. The tail should just be built up with a few extra parts. And yeah, I think the color scheme could be calmed down a bit from that second model. I think the creature's flesh is best represented by light gray, and then the dark gray armor will be its own contrast.

    Strangely, the head is actually quite cheap (x<$1.00 USD) and available in large quantities on Bricklink. I'm guessing it's the horns+headdress piece that's driving up the price– Zabraks are a common species in Star Wars, but they have few minifigures to represent them.

    [MOC] Chitauri Leviathan

    I feel you could really improve the silhouette with a few simple changes: Remove at least the second fin. The Leviathan only has a few fins along its length, and the gaps between fins near the front are pretty big. The first fin is also bigger than the other ones, so use a slightly smaller plate for the ones at the back. Make the animal get narrower over its length. Even just making the rear two or three segments a couple studs narrower would help (e.g. 8x4 instead of 10x4). Add the spine. The Leviathan has notable protruding vertebrae that start around the 1/3 point of its back, grow taller going further back, then get smaller again. Those are the easiest changes that I think would help the most. I think using various slopes and curves to match the shaping of the armor would help, too, but that would be a lot more work and experimentation.
  14. In my experience, not only can you not buy them, but they wouldn't even replace my broken ones via the phone line (Zombie Pirate's hook hand).

    Those are really impressive! Your photography is top-notch as well! Congratulations! Heads up on Sue Storm's hair– if you're just trying to match style, the same piece appears in a more fitting banana-Yellow color.
