I saw Ant-man last night. I have never been a big fan of the character or of the Avengers as a whole. However, the latest run of Marvel movies changed that for me. Plus, Paul Rudd is usually funny and the costume looked cool. So I gave it a shot.
I definitely wasn’t disappointed. It was a blast. Marvel has become really good at making movies with just the right amount of action, drama, and humor. They have remembered that superheroes stories don’t have to be dark and hopeless. They can actually be fun.
Ant-man fan-made poster
Here’s a link to the the artist who made this poster. He made one for each of the Avengers.
With the Ant-man movie just releasing, I decide to make my own Heroclix version. I used an Micro Machine X-Wing Pilot.
Ant-man and friend
Just wanted to post of picture of all my captains together. I didn’t realize til I put this group together that the Lt. Dexter pod (the one I used for Picard) is the same figure as the Captain Kirk that came with the Enterprise.
Captains Robau, Kirk, Archer, and Picard
Enterprise is one of my favorite Trek series, so I wanted to make an Archer Fighter Pod. Archer was also referenced in the new Star Trek reboot when Scotty talked about using Archer’s dog, Porthos, for a transporter experiment.
Captain Jonathan Archer
This Archer was made using the exclusive Kirk figure from the Star Trek Fighter Pod four pack.
In the Kirk vs. Picard debate, I’ve always been firmly on the Picard side. So I had to make a Picard Fighter Pod. Before the first of the Star Trek reboot movies, IDW published a prequel series (Countdown) tying the new movies into the Next Generation timeline. In this series, Picard is the ambassador to Vulcan. Since the Fighter Pod line is based on the the reboot movies, I decided to make this version of Picard. Here’s how he looked in the comic:
Picard was made using a Dexter body and a Padwan Obi-Wan head from Star Wars Series 1.
