This is my latest custom figure that I'd been working on for some time, completed on 2nd June 2015; titled 'Future Warrior: US791 Corporal Jones'. This figure takes influence from the works of Snow Corporation and inspired by the 'Space Marine' look from the film Alien.

Some of you may have been wondering why I've not been updating the website for a while? Well, the truth is time and convenience play two massive factors and more often than not it's a lot easier to post a quick comment, update or photo on the Facebook page than it is to submit an article on here. Since I've made the decision to switch to video format reviews purely and drop the written reviews, that also means I have to come onto here less and less and as a result I've let some of the updates slide for which I apologise!
I've just listed in the reviews section, four reviews which were completed fairly recently for your viewing pleasure. These are:

So, in the middle of reviewing some new figures, I've been busy working on my Sideshow Snake Plissken figure and making some improvements which included a complete body swap-out and overall weathering and a head sculpt re-paint too.
You can check out the complete 'modifications' album on Facebook here. Don't worry if you haven't got a Facebook account, the privacy settings are such you can see them without. I've also got some out of the box product shots here for you too.
Finally, I'll leave you with a couple of the finished works, and the head re-paint too...
So we've got two new reviews completed for you recently and uploaded on our YouTube channel...
The first is the DAM Toys Chinese Peoples Armed Police Force, and this one will be a YouTube only review which you can watch by clicking on the image below:
The second one is the VERYCOOL Female Shooter VCF-2021A, this one will have a full written review to compliment the video, but for now you can check this out by again clicking on the image below:
I get emails, comments and messages all the time through my website and social media channels from you lovely lot, and this one was a particularly interesting one when it turned up just before Christmas. I had an enquiry from a gentleman named James who used to work for the good old manufacturer BBI back in the 1990's. James has amassed quite a collection of some now very rare and unique pieces, all pretty much in A1 mint condition that he would like to sell on to a collector who will appreciate and care for this wonderful collection of some very fine examples of 1/6th of yesteryear. This exciting collection features no fewer than 31 'Elite Force' figures, including some prototype and engineering examples, CY Girl figures, Die-Cast Weapons Sets, Fighter Jet Cockpits... you name it.
The entire collection is conservatively valued at £3150, so James would be looking for offers in that region and wishes to sell the ENTIRE collection as one lot and not break it into individual figures. Postage and packaging would be additional (would recommend using a courier for this lot!) and buyer can view and collect from his home, he lives near Lancashire.
Now, I've included some pictures in 'catalogue' format below to show you the kind of items in question and an entire inventory in PDF format which can be downloaded here.
Please do also share this with anyone else in the collecting community who you feel may be interested.
We've been busy reviewing again, this time it's the beautiful Gladiator School Of Pompeii (Set 2) from Kaustic Plastik. There will be a full written review to accompany this, but in the mean time and whilst you're waiting, please check out YouTube review by clicking on the image below:
If you subscribe to our YouTube channel, you may have already seen this posted, but if not... Here are two new reviews recently that we'd like you to check out - just click on one of the images below :
WOLFKING 'Chemical Poisoning Teacher' (aka Walter White) - available from KG Hobby
ZC Toys 'Emulated Figure' 1/6 Muscle Body - available from One Sixth Kit (or iyiyyy on eBay)
So, we've not posted any news for a while, and I apologise for that but trying to maintain a website and social media presence (YouTube / Facebook) as well as actually enjoying the hobby is taking it's toll! Anyway, we've missed posting some individual news items so here is a quick round-up on some of the latest 1/6th boxed figures to be announced and available for pre-order (mostly):
Hot Toys - MMS276 'John Matrix' Commando
This one came out of absolutely no-where, they hadn't even teased at this, and some times those releases are the best ones. The ones that catch you in the morning on Facebook and you think 'what the hell, where did that come from?!' - yep, this is one of those. Anticpated release date Oct 15, at the time of writing this is not yet available for pre-order, but expect that to change any day now. With no ideas on pricing yet, I'm speculating aound £170 - £175 for the UK markets, but I could be wrong; here's hoping he's not any more than that!
Soldier Story - Kommando Spezialkräfte (KSK)
Soldier Story continue there very popular line of 'special forces' figures from around the globe and different theatres of combat, although I have to admit, it would be nice to see just a plain and simple 'grunt' every now and again. This one is from the German special forces units, in head to toe Flecktarn which personally I find a little uneasy on the eye and will be pass for me, although certainly some nice gear in the set. This one is available for pre-order now at £109.99
Hot Toys - MMS275 TDK Rises : Lt Gordon, Blake & Bat Signal
No real surprises that Hot Toys was going to try and milk every last penny out of this film licence, and to be honest I don't blame them. Certainly the Dark Knight 'completists' out there will be happy to see some further additions to the collection. This one is available as a complete set, or with the bat signal and Blake, but unfortunately no bat signal and Gordon only option... I suspect to this end, we'll see a few loose 'Blake's on the eBay shortly. This is available for the complete set at £309.99 or £209.99 for the Blake only set.
ACE Workshop - LRRPs Vietnam : "Bulldozer"
Ace Works have bought to us some really fantastic Vietnam figures, and about time as the 1/6th military community was crying out for some decent Nam gear, it's only a shame that like the other manufactuers they continue to focus on 'special forces' style and not your average infantryman. A load of nice gear in this set and I can see the uniform and boots proving to be popular as loose items as they often are. This one is currently priced at £124.99
So, where can you get all of these lovely releases? Well, with the exception of the 'Commando' figure which at the time of writing is not yet up for PO, all of the above are available for our UK/EU readers from www.collectablekitbash.co.uk
