Loki needs to tone back the eye shadow. Evening makeup does not go with that outfit. :)

But it's a very cool looking figure.

Hey, thanks for the comments guys

Took forever to finish Loki. I actually botched the face and had to brush it with acetone to remove all paint, mine and Hasbro's.

Hasbro had this uncommon pinkish colour around white empty eyes. I wanted more of a classic John Buscema look. The thing is, Buscema depicts Loki with heavy black ink around the eyes. Looks great in comics, but not on figures. So I did a compromise with the smoky eye effect, hopefully depicting the malignant, old intelligence. It doesn't look as pronounced in natural light.

Okay; I see what you were going for now.

It's funny how pictures can accidentally alter the look of things.

Excellent work, Dorm.

Thank you very much. I've been waiting for a classic Loki since ML13. Because it just never happened, I had to go for it.

Captain Marvel

I've had this guy sitting on a table for much of 2013. Thought I'd give him a photo-op at last.

Yeah, looks good. I'm a fan of Marvel on DCUC base bodies.

Thanks, guys! I'm feeling okay with replacing my ML15 version now. Mind you, I'm having trouble deciding on selling/trading the old one -- out of nostalgia's sake. I suppose the right $ amount will help me decide.
