Gift Items and All kinds of Novelties

We all like Gift Items, Toys, Crafts, Festival Items, Premiums and All kinds of Novelties .

This is the first Thanos toy figure for Marvel Legends. You would have thought that he would have had one before now, him being the cosmic badass that he is. Wonder if the Marvel Select version discouraged them from making one. That is a great figure and still likely to be my preferred choice.

He's got a ball hinge neck, ball hinge, ball hinge shoulders, bicep swivel, elbow hinge, swivel hinge wrists, ab crunch, waist rotation, ball hips, thigh swivel, double jointed knees, calf swivel and ankle hinge and pivot. He can hardly bend his elbows due to his forearm bracers. He also can hardly spread his legs. There doesn't appear to be a slit at the hip joint to allow him to do so.

Anyway, this is a modern version of Thanos. He's got a great head sculpt. I like the wrinkles. It's got some shading which helps flesh them out. It looks like they skimped on the teeth. They were only painted in but they did a pretty good job of it. His eyes stand out thanks to some metallic paint. He's got a really evil look about him. He wears an armour type looking costume. There's great sculpted detail on the body. His gloves has the plated knuckles. The metal pattern groove on his thighs and the sculpted spinal detail adds to his menacing look. The gold shoulder piece is separate and pegs onto his shoulders. The bracers, belt and boot cuffs are all separate and have nice detail on them. The grooves have some yellow paint applied.

I feel the belt should have had a bit more paint detail. The paint apps are decent. There's some silver which got onto his fingers though and the silver at his thighs is patchy. So too the gold strip on his chest. We all love remiums and All kinds of Novelties Items.

Paper cutting art and they make lovely gifts

All you will need: Cardboard (4x the size of your picture), scalpel / scissors, paper (slightly bigger than the picture to frame, PVA glue, split pins, paint

[1] Cut a wavy shape out of card slightly bigger than the picture you are framing. Cut a second, slightly bigger than the last. These make the front of the frame. Cut a hole in the same place of both shapes slightly smaller than the picture (make the hole in the smaller shape slightly larger than in the larger shape). Cut a third card shape, a rectangle slightly bigger than the picture, but smaller than the largest shape (to act as the back).

[2] Make holes through the back into the larger shape in places where the smaller shape covers, so that the heads of the split pins can be covered.

[3] Paint the front shapes by flicking paint onto them. Use black paint to colour the back of the larger shape, the inside of the hole in the larger shape, and the back of the back. Using the paper, cut a shape slightly larger than the small front piece, to outline it.

[4] Assemble the frame: pin the larger front shape and back piece. Stick the paper and smaller front piece to the larger front piece and paint with PVA glue to give a shine. Once dry, take off the back by un-doing the split pins and insert your picture. Replace the back and hang on the wall!
