That is kind of how I see it. It is supposed to be his ship but is too small for that with anything other than micromachines, but as a robot lackey.......

Only problem with using the Happy Meal BM ships is they don't match Devil ray's colors

I'm going to paint a Parasite blade accessory blackish-gray and give it to SHADOW THIEF.
I'll send pics once it's done. :wink:

Lightning Lad looks good with the new Barry FLASH lightning bolt while
Black Vulcan looks better with the old solid FLASH lightning bolt.

OAFE did a review this week on The Cubes. 3" figures of corporate office peons with cubicle playsets. I was looking at the pics and noticed that their legs are off the ground when they sit in the chairs, which could mean the accessories would work well with 3.75" figures like DCIH or MU.

I thought awhile back bout Having my dream JLU accessories/weapons pack & thought that Metamorpho Blade would be perfect cast in translucent black 4 Shadow Thief altho i wouldn/t paint 1 only due to the fact I play w/ these w/ my nephews often. Can't wait to see it done though!

believe it or not my nephew's 1st Waverider single's hair fell off right after that figure came out so when i got Volcana (super early on) we gave her Waverider's staff & HAIR as her weapons & used the hairless Waverider as a (horrible) GOLDFACE since they were lacking many villians back in those days! then i found way better accessories for Volcana so we used it for the original black/gold BOOSTER GOLD's Energy blast, he could hold it ok too! Funny how when starved for accessories we come up w/ the same ideas !!
Will post pics of all the accessories i use for my JLU figs! ex.:
*******************************
Shadow Theif = BTAS Catwoman snap on BLACK CLAWS gauntlets! - looks great 4 Play/ Display
Fire & Atmoic skull - translucent Green FIRE accessories from somewhere
like every1 else we used Red Tornado's access. 4 FLASH's arm wirlwinds.
DC Superheroes Batarangs (7 different) 4 BM, Nightwing, Batgirl, Robin.
ect. *post pics tomorrow!!

**Those are the SAME Iron Man constructs I use 4 my Infinite Heroes & JLU !! I was watching those Iron Man Movie Figs & MU figs for them to CLEARANCE just to get the accessories since i USUALLY Refuse to spend $8 4 a fig i cud care less about 2 get the ACCESSORY 4 my JLU & DCIH Accessory-STARVED figs, so i REALLY lucked out & won almost every Iron Man ACCESSORY in 2 Ebay lots from the same Seller for UNDER $8. like 15 Missle Launchers (dont really care 4 those) & OVER 12 CONSTRUCTS PERFECT for BOTH lines!!
ex. *RED REPULSOR BLAST 4 JLU VOLCANA
*Iron FISTS' Energy Fist For the CYRSTAL BALL Staff i have 4 JLU TALA
*MULTIPLE Yellow Constructs like Pictured Above (from like pee-Yellow to MOUNTAIN DEW) 4 DCIH / JLU SINESTRO
*ARTIC ICE Repulsor Blast for JLU ICE ect ect ect
*CRIMSON DYNAMO's Energy Blast (pictured above)4 DCIH STAR SAPPHIRE & trying to get it to strecth over JLU STAR SAPPHIRES HEAD which was my original plan the 1st time i saw that fig.
************Wish those Irom Man figs were $2 ea @ BIG LOTS!!!
***********Still looking 4 $2 BIG LOT John Stewart GL MIB or LOOSE GREEN MACE CONSTRUCTS $$$ or TRADE EARLY JLU/DCIH
