Marvel UK To Return in Marvel's 'Revolutionary War'

At this years SDCC (San Diego Comic Con) Marvel announced the return of Marvel UK in a series called the Revolutionary War, by Andy Lanning, in January 2014.

There will be six one shot issues featuring Death's Head, Dark Angel, Warheads, Knights of Pendragon, Motormouth, and Super Soldiers, with two 'Alpha' and 'Omega' issues bookending these, a sort of start, and finish.

I am extremely excited about this project, and it's good to know that Marvel US hasn't totally forgotten about the British side of Marvel.

CBR recently held an interview with Andy Lanning about this upcoming event, for the full interview follow this link...

Baron Blood Custom Figurine

Eaglemoss released a set of lead figurines under the title of 'The Classic Marvel Figurine Collection', which came to an end earlier this year at figurine number 200, plus there were various specials. They measure roughly 90mm in height, and have become quite a desired collection. As you can image there were very few Marvel UK heroes included in the collection, amongst other heroes that collectors were hoping would be made.

I have another Blog called Metal Ink Custom Figurines, where I showcase custom pieces I've made for other collectors, plus ones for my own Brit collection. The most recent one I've made for my own collection is of Baron Blood...

Baron Blood's first appearance was in 1976, in 'The Invaders' comic, issue #7, created by Roy Thomas and Frank Robbins.

Here's a couple of photo's taken for fun, with a MI:13 feel, and nod of respect towards the great series it was.

I just need to make a Spitfire figurine, a Pete Wisdom figurine, and a Faiza Hussain figurine, to complete the set, there's already a Blade figurine, just need to buy it!

Check out my other Blog to see more info on this figurine, plus others I've made...
