WM Brand WM212: Chrome Armed Winter Soldier Minifig Review

This is how bootleggers should utilitize their chrome parts!

Printing's not as sharp as SY or TLG, but also not as sharp as other WM releases. This is very noticeable on his face mask when zoomed, you'll see the lack of sharpness, but still not enough for me to pass on him. Plastic quality is the usual for WM/POGO. XINH's recent releases are better though in my opinion. The hair piece is the only one I have a problem with in terms of plastic quality; it just feels really cheap + lots of those plastic chipping and scratches right out of the bag.

The non-chrome arm has no printing. Better view of the sniper rifle as well. Not a fan but at least they included it!

The chrome arm's movement seems to be a bit more stiff compared to regular arms, and that's alright if you're just displaying him. Articulation is still fine, it really just feels a bit more stiff, maybe because of the thicker chrome layer.

A better view at the chrome arms. The star could be a bit more red, but no complaints really, I think it still looks nice. (Might be an isolated case too)

Too bad there's no maskless face.. But at least we have the Civil War Winter Soldier for the maskless face anyway.
Quality wise, same as front's printing.

I wasn't a fan of the huge sniper rifle so I replaced it with this AR from a DLP minifig. 

"Cool, you have a metal arm?!"

In the end, this is, in my opinion, a must have if you're a Marvel collector. Especially if you don't have Winter Soldier yet. This design came from TLG's Captain America Winter Soldier [Movie] polybag by the way. Quality [of plastic and printing] is what you'd usually expect from a bootlegger; not as good as TLG or SY though, but not bad at all.

XINH 677, 682: Spider-Man (Spider-Armor MK3 and PS4 Spider-Man) Minifigs Preview

Great job, XINH! (Apart from some issues, see below.)



Let's get these out of the way. Each of them came with these. The transparent parts are very useful, the web, not so much, but it's a welcome addition! The quality of the web seems a bit more flexible than the usual DLP or SY ones. Not a big deal since they still do their jobs fine.


Left: Spider-Man (from upcoming PS4 Spider-Man game)
Right: Spider-Armor MK3

Printing quality and plastic quality are great! Way better than POGO's recently, but there are still some issues. You might have noticed some of them by now.

Side view: Some very detailed prints thankfully!


Back view! No dual molding, but not complaints. Quality of the prints is just as good as the front's. Love PS4 Spider-Man's back face print too!

You may have noticed already the hideous foot printing. I bet it's an isolated case (THAT I SADLY DID NOT NOTICE AGAIN). I'll be picking up a new one soon if I can. This is disappointing especially since everything else was great, but hey that's what you get for buying bootleg.
(Also Spider-Armor's feet seem ugly, but not that noticeable.)


The plastic quality was also crap for the head. Look at those strain marks, but in XINH's defense, it was because I tried to put a piece on the head (just so I wouldn't lose the piece)..


Left: Spider-Armor MK3 from XINH
Right: Spider-Armor MK3 from DLP



So yeah, despite being the same costume/variant/character, the designs are still different, which is why I bought the XINH one too. I'll just treat them as two different characters.. Hahaha

I also reviewed Silk from the same set.

They all come from this bigger XINH set.

Side note, Spider-Verse wish list:
Captain Universe Spider-Man, Black suit Spider-Man, and Blue Spider-Man 2099. (Among others. Haha)

WM Brand WM203: Logan (From Logan Movie) with New Claws Minifig Preview

Actually not sure what his real code is. If you want the new claws, best to search for Laura because Logan is "included" in Laura's selling page usually.


Here's a review of WM's older Logan with the classic claw accessories. 

Thanks to Enrico for the heads up on these! 

Laura is WM219 so just search her up if you wanna see listings of this Logan with the new claws.

POGO PG957: Updated Star Trek Minifig of Flight Suit Spock

Previously, we saw PG957 as an Earth human.


This is different from the original preview from POGO. This ones's based on the reboot's first movie if I'm not mistaken.

I really prefer this actually 'cause I want Spock's hair piece for my Namor and another MOC (stay tuned hehe)

DTB: Haul for Junes 25, 2017 from Local Mini Convention

Crossing a lot off of my wishlist! Yay!


I'll be reviewing the WM Chrome-armed Winter Soldier, the two Spider-Men from the XINH set, and that DLP Black Panther mech soon!

Got lots of stuff for MOCs or small-army building!

More parts for me, almost forgot them phew.

I got them from a local mini convention! Here are some pics of the event: 



(These are pictures of the displays, not the sellers. Chose not to take pics of  too many faces for privacy reasons! :D )

Sorry for the few event pictures, I was in a rush honestly, 'cause I had to get Transformers Last Knight tickets haha (side note: disappointed at the movie despite being a HUGE Transformers fan, IDW TF comics are 10000% better)
But anyway, the event pics are to prove how much bootleg has increased brick activity. If we only had access to official bricks, then things would be too expensive for most people. (The event features a lot of official stuff too though!)

Sorry for the lower number of posts recently, been busy and not a lot of news out there.
