This week I started to rearrange my display shelves, so I thought I would take a few pictures of my collection. There will be more pictures to follow.

Love it! I like seeing displays where every figure is visible like that. Looks great!

Are those flying stands just modified hangers?

Thanks :) Yeah most of them are modified hangers with a few purchased flight stands in the mix. I think that they make for a pretty good an inexpensive flight stand.

Nice displays! Are those customs by you? I see white suit Sharon Carter, and maybe Sersi?

Thanks everyone :)

Oh and buyer beware the recent DCUC Wave 4 Wonder Woman figures showing up on eBay from china are knock-offs.

Here is the Knock-off:

I emailed the seller about it and sent me a half refund, which is better than the hassle to send the item back so I'm good.

The things that I noticed on this fake is that the paint isn't as crisp and a bit sloppy in some areas. She is missing the blue highlights in her hair, the stars on her trunks are smudged, and the flesh tone paint doesn't cover some of the limbs completely either. The sculpt is not a sharp as the original one, you can see extra mold flashing on the tiara and the jaw line, the belt is also slightly misshaped, and the hands are poorly molded as well on one hand the fingers look like sausages and the other is very thin so thin it looks like the could easily break off. Plus with these Wave 4 WW pretty much bet if it's coming from Hong Kong it's a fake Wonder Woman.

The funny part is that they kept the ankle pivots like on the original Wave 4 Wonder Woman. When Mattel dropped that point of articulation to supposely to cut cost, but a KO company can afford to keep it on their Knock-offs... LOL

My understanding is these China items are test run figures - which would explain the slop that would need to be corrected later.

This isn't a test run it's a straight off Knock-off figure. I have test runs in my collection, and this isn't one of them :)

Nice collection brother! I'm really digging the action poses. Mine are usually just boring standing still poses.
