Brian - I just got the Fantastic Four Future Foundation variant last week from HTS.com  I saw it come in stock, called them up, and they said that all the ones they have in the warehouse are the white variant.  So I ordered one and it was what they said it was.  HTS still has them in stock.  I'm pretty confident that if your order one, it'll be white.  But you might want to call just incase.

Yeah, confirm via telephone first.  I ordered two sets back when they supposedly only had the white set in stock, and I got one of each.

DR - thanks for the tip on the FF set, I'll check that out.  Also, if anyone is interested, as of right now (11:00 or so CST) the Compound Hulk appears to be back in stock at HTS.

Man, I had to stop and think about Compound Hulk. $19 after tax and shipping? Maybe if it's still there tomorrow...

I picked up an extra Hulk exclusive if anyone is looking to make a trade.

Looking for anything in particular?

King Loki, King Laufey or Deluxe Heimdal from the Thor line.

Expanding the trade list for Composite Hulk.  A TVC Echo Base Trooper would most certainly work!

I saw the Absorbing Man wave at Walmart on Wed.  They had two skin versions of him along with Magneto, Rogers, and Iceman.

I picked up Magneto and Iceman. Anybody know the difference between this Iceman and the one that came out in the Wolverine movie line? I'm hoping you'll tell me the MU one is startlingly better because I paid nine bucks for it, but passed on the Wolverine one on clearance for $2 about a dozen times.

Here is a side by side comparison of the two - kinda.  On the left is the X-men one - and on the right is the MU Spiderman and His Amazing friends version (same mold as the current one you grabbed - just now in a translucent plastic.

I guess I would say this new one is better.  I have read on marvelousnews.com that one member said he was able to remove all of the paint off the new using nail polish remover to make a standard Iceman

Saw the Power-Man/Iron Fist comic pack last week for the first time. Had been curious about this since it went up on HTS.

Man, that was one embarassing comic that does not hold up well today.

DId you request the white version or did it just show up.  I ordered a set and it arrived in MN but I neglected to ask about it.  I"ll leave it as a surprise I guess.

Okay here is the official DresselRebel incarnation of Ares.  It's MU Gladiator, and everything that is on this figure that was not on the MU Gladiator, I sculpted onto him inbetween patients Tuesday and Wednesday at work with dental filling material.  I still want to add some leg holsters and a knife or something.
