It's funny overhere In uk, we have an abundance of cyborg in TRU. But can not find killer croc here whatsoever.
We generally seen to be a month behind on new products. So hopefully get lex Luthor soon


Assortments are definitely regional. I know some areas in the US get assortments before others do. I remember hearing about other regions in the US getting Crocs at discount chains like Big Lots yet the major retail stores here never really had him at all. And Cyborgs haven't shown up anywhere here (as far as I can tell). If my local Toys R Us stores have gotten them they must have been in small amounts and sold out immediately.

Fisher Price's website has some new stuff available for order, including the new police car, city playset, and this:

Lazer Jet:

I actually think I would prefer that "lazer jet" for WW's invisible jet (if it was totally clear of course). Don't get me wrong, I will be buying the invisible jet asap, but I don't think the shape of it and the blue coloring was the right choice. If this lazer jet was molded in clear plastic it would be perfect! :)

There's lots of other pieces on there as well! City playset and much more! Check 'em out!!

And I think I see an "Ace the Bathound" in the making with this set:

There's also new Spongebob stuff on there.

The problem is the Two Face figure and plane and the Green Lantern figure with motorcycle from the Gotham City collection that have become peg/shelf warmers.


I did my part. I bought a Green Lantern on a motorcycle. I liked his bike, sure it's a repaint of the Batbike with slightly different wheels but it looks nice. I like the motorcycles.

I'll be looking or that sidecar rig. My ImagiNext motorcycle collection needs a sidecar.

I will also be needing the Burglar Cyle!

I had spotted the odd Big Rig w/Robot on Target's website and didn't understand the limited amount of pictures. Apparently this is a big rig that hides a robot? That's a cool concept. Fairly neat take on Transformers.

Found a new Triceratops as well it looks very nice.

http://www.fisher-price.com/fp.aspx?st= ... &pid=75345

Really want to get it and the $10 batmobile.

Looks like the claw actually opens and closes too.

Soe of their prices seem out of whack on there the raptor that's usually $11 is listed for $17.

Buying it when you see it is the best policy, ther is only 1 WM in my area that has ever had the yellow raptor around Christmas they had about 30 now they still have a few left I bet they are the same lot, it's like they got all the cases that should have went to other WM's.

So I removed the cape from an extra new Batman figure that I had and glued it to the Robin and here is a picture of how it turned out.

That's ace.
How did you remove the cape?
With a scalpel?
Was it easy to do?
Can it be done to any Imaginext figure?
Thanks,

First I put the Batman figure in boiling water for about 45 seconds to soften the glue holding the cape on. Then I removed the cape, you can use a blade to loosen it if the glue still sticks. Then glue it on to the Imaginext figure. It was not hard to do in my opinion. I suppose you can add the cape to any Imaginext figure, as for the boiling method that seems to only work on the cape or the hands that are connected at the wrist.

I've been working on a Batgirl also (cant show pic yet, waiting on a part in the mail......sorry) but I would suggest that you find a different head and then use just the cape.


Hello, How's your Batgirl going?

Hey Guys,

Sorry in advance for the longer then usual post but I just got back from family vacation and trying to play catch up on all the news. I have to say I envy everyone who 's finding the new superman and Bizzaro packs. We haven't had any new product in the Shelbyville, Indiana Wal-Mart since Christmas. I was hoping to find some on the way driving to and from Florida but only lucked into finding Cyborg at a Toys R US in Georgia.
Before We left I did manage to get the Hall of Doom done finally. While we got the Lex Luthor with armor before we left my wife decided to save it for my son's birthday. Having already opened my mouth and promised him something cool once the Hall was done, I had no choice but to make him something to go with it. Image
I decided on the Arkham Asylum version of Scarecrow. He just seems so creepy.
Image
On a final note I wanted to remind my fellow customizers out their not to overlook their local Goodwill for parts. The one down here has been a goldmine of parts lately. In fact I just recently picked up the JLA watchtower play set for $4.00 and it only seems to be missing very little.

Would you mind sharing how you made the Scarecrow figure?

Thanks The_Joker13,

It was actually something that took a little trial and error. The final figure is a mini mutants shredder figure with all of the blades cut off for the body and a five inch batman begins scarecrow head. The hood/cloak is the cape from a three inch skeletor type figure I found at Big Lots several years ago along with some Aves epoxy sculpt to make it look the way I wanted. The two respirator parts on his mouth are little Lego pieces I got from my wife (the Lego collector in the family) I still need to add the noose around his neck but I'm looking for a way to make it look right.
