I not a fan of modern figures in general but this figure of Yondu (from the Guardians Of The Galaxy comic) really captured my imagination:

cool. is this the marvel universe figure? (so 3 3/4) I am not even sure if they have done a 6 inch comic yondu. This is how he looks in the comics I believe vs the movie rendition which I think is actually much better.

Hi,
Yep, you're spot on it is indeed the small Marvel Legends version. I absolutely love the movies & know next to nothing about the original comics.. but this figure really just appeals to me for some reason I can't put my finger on.

When I say I'm not a fan of modern figures I doesn't mean that I don't (or can't) appreciate them on a technical level.. it's just that I collect mainly for nostalgia & sentimental reasons & that, for me, usually means vintage.

I once watched the team from Boss Fight Studios at work, during a weekend convention, & those guys are true artists.. the skill/talent involved in taking a ball of wax & a few simple tools to produce an highly detailed sculpt is mind blowing.  



They were producing their a modern take of the vintage (Action Force) Kraken figure..







I did treat myself to one of their fine products:


Hard to believe that not only is this skeleton only 3 3/4" tall but is also highly articulated:

This will probably give a truer impression of the scale..

Wow, I didn't know those were 3 3/4 figures. I saw these in a thread on rebelscum but thought they were 6 inch scale. That skeleton could fit into a star wars display. A little char on it and you have uncle owen and aunt beru after the storm troopers came to visit. lol!
