Marc Baptiste: ďPaul,

Forgive my ignorance, but what is that figure?  Looks cool!

ThanksĒ

Hi Marc,
Thatís a Balrog from Weta. They created a line of figures based on the film versions.
Iím working on completing the set of 18 figures (IIRC). 4 more to go!

See my post a couple of pages back for more wordage from me.

Just noticed this on Amazon. Probably the closest to capturing the CRAZY of Dark Phoenix I've seen, cartooniness notwithstanding.

Got the chest emblem right, too!

Collect all 110 issues of Deagostini's "Thunderbirds Secret Base" magazine to build a diorama model of Tracy Island, complete with LED lights and motorized gimmicks:

Deagostini Thunderbirds Secret Base Website

The first 2 issues are roughly $5 and $10 USD, and after that it goes up to $18.

Tempting, but not sure where I'd find the room to put the completed version...

Itís functionality is impressive, but it looks so plastic. Needs a good dose of weathering

The Lancaster kit arrived. Here's a look at the assembly instructions for just the cockpit!!

Luckily, I won't be having to deal with this, as I plan to build a strictly exterior-only version. Even the wheel wells and the bomb bay will be closed.

I ordered the Dark Phoenix seen above. It's a bobblehead, of course, but I noticed if I tip the head just slightly to one side she looks even more malevolent. Must figure out a way to lock the head in that position.

Received the Funko POP! FF figures. SO cute. And once again, so accurate in the costume detailing they could actually be used as reference!
