I like the position of Brainiac's arm in that picture. It's a very subtle thing that makes the pic work very well.

That looks like the Tower of Doom but the color is wrong.

Thanks, guys.

BG - That's my biggest catch 22 with this line. As a collector I love the simple 5 point articulation. As a diorama maker, it's very tricky to get them to communicate emotion/action through their body language with such limited articulation. I don't want them to look like they're just standing there. And even THAT is a trick and a half with this line without the use of stands.

That is the Tower of Doom. The coloring isn't wrong, it's just faded after years of use.

It's "Power Demonstration Day" for the new arrivals.

I've heard the complaints but, to me, these all just look cool.

I'm still not a fan of the new 52 but it does have a LOT of new awkward moments.

Take the body of General Eiling, swap heads with Blackhawk (which requires some sanding down on the neck), repaint the hair and hat and BOOM: Hello, Steve Trevor.

To think... WW fans could've had two Steve Trevors by now... if they'd bothered to read their favrit's threads, back in February.

I've been in a customizing frenzy this weekend. All of the finished figs can be found on my Custom Justice page. But here are a few Golden Age Awkward Moments in the JLU.
