Robots in disguise! With the Botcon 2011 Transformers convention as well as the 3rd movie in the trilogy coming soon it seemed appropriate to show a group shot of evil Decepticons. The Classics/Henkei/Universe 2.0/Generations/Reveal the Shield line is probably the best set of Transformers since the original series from 1984. The Transformers were originally part of the Marvel Universe (indeed Spider-Man even had a guest appearance in issue #3) with a 80-issue comic book run and a 12-issue sequal . Previous front page images were the Autobots, X-Men Villains, Spiderman Villains, Cosmic Powers, Thor Universe, Avengers and Iron Man Armors.
Welcome to Al's Action Figures! This site is mostly my tribute to one of the greatest action figure lines ever, the various Marvel superhero series made by Toybiz in the 90s. These 5" scale figures were the precursor to the current Marvel Legends series (now made by Hasbro) and although over 300 unique characters were made, many more were left out. I customize or buy customs from others as needed to fill out the gaps in my collection.
- View my customs by team or group affiliation ( i.e. Avengers or X-Men). This also shows the recipes for the customs
Custom Index - View the customs individually, this is where you'd go if you want to see a particular character
What's New - The latest additions to the site, including new customs or group sections. As I introduce new customs I'll tend to have a little info on the character here
Unreleased Figures - Figures that Toybiz and other companies never made beyond the prototype stage or which changed significantly upon release. I really wanted all of them!
My 5" Marvel Toybiz collection - My entire Marvel action figure and custom collection in an IKEA display case
Links - These sites all have inspired me one way or another, many different custom styles represented as well as toy news and forums
Special thanks to customizers Chris, Cool Custom King, and Mattman - from seeing their work at the custom section of uncannyxmen.net - now moved to www.thehouseofideas.net (thanks to Mark Bowers for the excellent job in showing the customs) I got the desire to make customs for my own collection.
