It was like 5 years ago when I got the S.I.C. volume 38 (whitebox below) and from that day on that I had it I told myself will keep it mint-in-box until I get my hands on the volume 11 (box above) but that time I was also into other figures under this line and it’s spin offs not to mention I started collecting other action figures from different toy lines.. It took me a while before I decided to start hunting for this S.I.C. Volume 11 and now that I have them both its time to free them in their packaging and start taking photos of ’em.. And if time permits may do a review of them tough there may have been quite a few that had been done but will just do it for the reason that I want to..
Been wanting to fix this figure for ages, the peg on its ankles broke off due to quality control issue. Now that I’m in the mood to fix it I had to go with the simpliest way that I can think off…
Had to go with any screw that I can find at home that would fit the peg hole of the figure’s ankle..
And now its fixed! It would be temporary tough for I may replace the screw with a darker one so it would somehow blend in to the figure’s color scheme..
Did took this photo two years ago using the Mc farlane Spiderman and face-off Daredevil figure from toybiz and a Deadpool custom figure. I did this shot without any preparation at all, like I just tought of it and just had to print a mug shot background and just wrote the numbers these figures are holding thru a piece of paper and ‘tadaa!! Instant toy photo shoot.
Below is the set up.
Now since Hasbro released their new Marvel Legends infinite series line a couple of months back I decided on redoing this shot since I really dig how the Spiderman and Daredevil figure turned out, the paint apps on their new figures is a bit glossy and the sculpt is nothing like the ones we used to get from the toybiz line but that didn’t stop me from hunting these new Marvel Legends figures since I dig the look and the proportion of these figures.
This time I added a cut out and the background is still a print out thanks to Google, the template the figures are holding is also a print out that was made thru MS Excel just to give a more detail to the concept I was aiming for.. And of course the shot wouldn’t be complete without a deadpool on it so I used my Marvel Legends Deadpool figure that came from the twin pack that came with Warpath by Hasbro.
So this is how it turned out.
I feel more contented now on how the shot turned out. Totally worth it.

It was sometime around May or April this year when everyone saw the very first trailer of the most awaited Batman vs Superman movie and a few moons ago the new official trailer came out and I think that was the first one everyone saw “The Trinity” in action… so that triggered me to do this shot using my DC Collectibles figures.
In case you haven’t seen the official trailer yet or you want to watch it again and again and again like me (lol), check it out below.
For me this is the most epic thing I have seen and I am more hype to see this movie compared to Marvel’s Civil War not because I am biased to DC (which I kinda am..lol) but really because we have seen a lot of what Marvel can throw at us and yes, it was all good and it will still be — except the stuff Fox did with their franchise.
After a couple of reboots from the Superman and Batman franchise, DC are now on the right track which they started off with the Man of Steel followed by this Batman vs Superman flick, we are still a couple of years shy to see the entire Justice League in one screen but at least there’s going to be one and I am one of those few who will be waiting for it.
