They do look great Jesper, but the availability of several of these figures is very low.

Sinestro himself is Super Rare and $55 - no way I'm paying that. The Green Construct is a Burger King figure - how do people outside America access this besides ebay - then you need to buy the other three Burger King figures that go with it as they are only sold in a set.

Several of the SHIELD agents and HYDRA operatives are also not available.

This also speaks true of other C3G releases - Kilowog for example is not sold anywhere anymore. Arkillo is also difficult to get and Alfred Pennyworth is very expensive as well.

Basically what I'm saying is that the releases are great, fantastic even, but they are sometimes very difficult to use.

How did you go about getting your hands on them over in Denmark?

Cheers,
Ben.

I see your problem Ben!

Some figures are either very expensive, or unavailable. For these I use proxies, like for Sinestro, I´m using an older figure, repainted black and yellow for that modern look. I´m using a proxied kilowog, only cost me 50 Cents. The Burger king toy I got from EBAY, found someone selling it seperately, but any robot/Power Ranger/Transformer of proper size would be fine. When there´s a new wave relesed, some figures, like the SHIELD and Hydra ones disappear fast, because people buy multiples, but since I follow the various C3G threads, I know what comes out, and order figures in advance.
