DTB DTB034: Red Feather (II) Minifig MOC

Stumpled upon a Captain Marvel head with no lipstick. This was created afterwards.


Parts used this time:
Head - Captain Marvel
Torso - Moon Knight
Others - Generic

The previous head. Link below for more information!

Uhh, don't even know his powers but I just had fun with this picture.. Hahaha

Moon Knight's body then erased the upper chest prints with pencil eraser.

POGO(or XINH, not sure) Captain Marvel head on the left and SY Captain Marvel head on the right.

Got the parts during a local store's sale at Greenhills. Even without the sale, they're heaven for MOCers hehe. Just look for AngeloMarcus at Greenhills Shoppesville Plus or pm me for more info!

XINH 668: Justice League 2017 Cyborg Minifig Review

From this set.

Great everything. Biggest issue: foot printings. Not so aligned and easily noticed when you look closer. Might be a quality control issue. Makes me wanna see how the factories do these minifigs.

No side prints but use these pictures to look at the sides of the helmet and the mechanical arm better!

Better look at the mechanical arm. We also receive three studs by the way!

Back printing!

Standard smiley face for the front.

Standard angry face for the back!

The helmet was really good. The hair is printed on I think, but it's printed on pretty well. This piece and the mechanical arm are probably the highlights of the set and the other pieces complement these pretty good as well!

I guess I understand why this guy came out late versus his other companions from the same set, probably because of the new arm's mold. Not sure if he's out in online stores, but my local store, AngeloMarcus Greenhills, has them already so do check wherever you buy. I still recommend official minifigs more of course, for best quality in every aspect!

Still, it's a pretty good copy! The whole set was pretty good actually.

XINH 704: Hela from Thor Ragnarok Minifig Review

We first saw her here.


Her weapons.

She comes with an extra hairpiece, this one. Also comes with that alternate face that seems off and doesn't look terrifying (which is what Hela is supposed to be right?).

Printing quality is great. They were able to get the thin lines pretty well unlike other bootlego brands.

That's the face you use when you put her helmet on.

Side view.

Back printing. As good as the front.

The most interesting part: the helmet. The horns are made of some sort of softer plastic, to get that bendy property. I'm okay with this because using normal plastic might make the horns too fragile, but at the same time these bendy horns end up being hard to "correct". If you look closely, you can see that the left and right horns aren't completely aligned, and it would need some effort to align them without risking the breaking of the horns. It's not too bad though and I guess it's better like this to make it more durable especially since this is a toy after all.

So yeah, just a short review. TL;DR - Good minifig, I'd love to see how POGO did theirs, and I'd also love to compare the authentic one with XINH, POGO, and hopefully other brands if they decide to make her. Just too bad she doesn't have the long legs the authentic one has, but then again that one is part of a bigger set.

Glad that my local store, AngeloMarcus, got them so quick. It's been a while since it's been previewed, but even AliExpress sellers didn't have her in stock but my local store did. Finally, some perks with being in a third world country (Philippines) hahaha

Credits to Unknown for the idea!



Parts used:
Head - Bunny Batman (But you can use other heads with white eyes and just marker around the eyes)

Very simple to make.

DTB DTB032: Classic Punisher Minifig MOC

For some of that Defenders and Punisher TV show hype!!



Parts used:
Legs - Generic white (used black Sharpie to cover upper portion)
Hands - Generic white
Everything else - POGO Punisher

Looking for black legs with white boots was difficult + more expenses if I looked for them, so I used one of my extra Moon Knight minifigs (which I got from AngeloMarcus', my local store, minifig sale which was heaven for MOCers (sale or not sale)).

Should I keep the beard or now? Some Classic Punisher pictures have the beard and others don't. I'm fine with any to be honest though.

Love giving him an arsenal of guns!!

Reference pictures:
Is mine good enough? What other changes can I make?

XINH 652, 655, 656, 657: Enchantress, Grandmaster, and More Minifigs Review

Previously previewed here!


Enchantress, Loki, Sakaarian Guard, and The Grandmaster.

Printing quality and plastic quality for all three are great! Just like recent XINH figs! I'll let the picture do the talking!


Not much going on at the sides.


Back view.


Grandmaster's alternate face and Enchantress' back torso without the hair.


My biggest wish is that figs like Enchantress, who wear those strapless type of outfits, have side printing too to further make


Minor issue: Minor misalignment of Sakaarian Guard's front and back print


Time for Loki. My Loki came with a spare arm and a scepter which I believe he shouldn't have because he lost that in Avengers (2012). He also comes with his normal hairpiece which is a welcome addition; it's weird that we don't have Thor's normal hairpiece..


Loki's scepter was bendier than the usual scepter piece, if that's an issue for some of you guys.


No issues here. That white line on the leg is just light, sorry haha.


Side view.


Loki with his classic hair. The alternate scared/worried face is also a welcome addition! Credits go to TLG for this!

TL;DR - A set worth getting! Would love to see it compared to POGO's and TLG's soon.

Last review for last weekend's haul! Hoping to get a new haul from my local store AngeloMarcus this Saturday or Sunday, they've always got new arrivals every weekend.
