Are those little figurines from the Classic Marvel Magazine originally published in the UK but now available in the US?

Thanks for reposting the link, Ryan.

Y'know, every time I see the Wolverine, I wonder if it would be worth the effort of a repaint. Thinking the same about Cyclops, too.

Slippery slope, that. Next thing, and I'll be trying to bend Spider-Man and Nightcrawler into more appropriate poses.

JB, do you own a copy of How to Draw the Marvel Way?  Sorry for the sort of off topic post, but I saw your books and became curious.

I used to have one, but a few years back I gave it to a
neighborhood kid.

What are those figures made of?  I think I'll be waiting a long time to see Guardian made, if ever.  Would it be possible to mod a Silver Surfer, or chop a few of these up to make what I want, like with Heroclix?

They're lead, Ryan. And, yeah, I would imagine
some of them would customize pretty easily.

Thanks JB.  I have about 25 years experience painting little lead Citadel figures, so I'm off to spend some money.

Captain Britain would probably make the best
Guardian. Need a little "whittling", but he's got the
"helmet".

Thanks for the advice!  Other than Captain America and Dr. Doom, the ones I really want aren't out yet, which will limit the bleeding for a while.

Love the Iron Man mini statues from Bowen. I wanted the Full Size ones, but they are rare and expensive!
