    MOC: Professor Xavier's wheelchair

    I also recently had a go at making a wheelchair for Professor X. My main priority was making sure that when placed next to a regular figure Xavier wouldn't be taller. It's not perfect, since I haven't been able to figure out how to get the wheels to spin, but I'm pretty happy with it. (Wolverine for scale.)

    Bootleg Super Heroes minifigs - worth it or not?

    Do you remember the different brands? Could you do a quick write-up on plastic quality per brand? And Hulkbuster hasn't been shown yet, just the silhouette. The link to what? Lots of places sell them (eBay stores, AliExpress) but they all come from China.

    Could you elaborate on how to use the acetone?

    The sockets already fit lego arms. :) I managed to get my fantastic four shoulders looking almost official, but it took a lot of work, frustration, and patience, so it's almost not worth it. You're suggesting softening the plastic with acetone, right?

    Well until someone makes an SDCC Phoenix replica I have no other option but to get the Decool one (which is a shame because I REALLY hate those shoulders).

    eBay is your best bet. A lot of sellers in China ship free internationally.

    Bootleg Super Heroes minifigs - worth it or not?

    I would be a lot happier buying bootlegs if they (a), had more accurate moulds, like rounded corners and circular hip joins, and (b), they had better quality control. As it stands I have to buy two lots of every Decool figure in case one has a misprint, and I have to use a file to wear down the shoulders so they're more rounded. I hadn't considered that aspect. While I would really, really love pad printed SDCC Phoenix and Spider-Man customs, I can understand why nobody wants to make them. I wonder if there's any way around this issue.

    You think that's bad? In New Zealand it costs $100 NZD (that's $86 USD and $93 CAD).

    They're from China, so any time from a week to a month. It varies.

    I'm pretty sure this isn't purist. With the hair and the coat.
  20. It should be noted that the guy you linked to buys Chinese clone brand Hulks and then sculpts and paints over them. He doesn't do any casting.

    I'm thinking that TLG might recolour Wolvie's new mask and use it for comic/animated Hawkeye.
