Surprising to hear as all of the ones I've seen in person have had great paint jobs. I suppose it's bound to happen with any company.

So when are you going to change your name to DC-lito?

Time to hop on board full steam. Marvel's days in the sun are numbered.

I remember hearing from risingstar and a few others that their LCS had experienced the same paint problems that mine had. In a run of 8000 there are bound to be a few bad ones. Still surprising considering how clean the paints were on the first few in the series. I'm just glad that there seems to be enough good examples to go around.

I picked up a few of these right before Christmas when my LCS had a half price sale. Most I have had for a while but they have been sitting in storage boxed up. Finally got new cases and lighting and here they all are. I'm still working on cleaning up the cases with full length mirrors on the back glass but just had surgery and it will have to wait a while. This is the first time I have ever had them all on display and I was too excited to wait for picture taking.

The two glass cases are Detolf's from Ikea. The third one that only has a glass front is an older case I bought from Ikea as well they no longer make. Can't remember the name of it. I bought it about 4 years ago and it was more expensive than the two Detolf's together.

The LED lighting is from Ikea as well. They are called Dioder's.

The clear bases I used for the busts are from The Container Store. They are acrylic cabinet organizers . They are too wide for the Dioder's by a couple inches and fit just perfect in the older case.

Here are links to them all.
