Re: EBAY: CGC 9.4 Bloodshot #0 Platinum (Not Mine)

That is fascinating. What does yours look like condition-wise? The edges of mine are immaculate, but there is one small bend on the back of the spine that isn’t visible on the front. Mine is pretty sharp. The chromium cover very slight curls up at the corners when lying flat but no other 'defects' ...

Re: EBAY: CGC 9.4 Bloodshot #0 Platinum (Not Mine)

I bought it and received it today. It’s my second platinum. The first one I have is a also raw but has no issues with the chromium from a layering perspective. This one has the same strange chromium issue on the front as the back cover. It is just more pronounced on the front cover, but if you open...

Re: EBAY: CGC 9.4 Bloodshot #0 Platinum (Not Mine)

Received a notice that the raw platinum book sold. Funny, I don't usually get those for items I am watching, but don't buy. Anyway, thought I'd drop a note here. I don't think it sold, the seller told me he will end the auction early. He wasn't overly keen to sell and is looking to get the book sen...

Re: EBAY: CGC 9.4 Bloodshot #0 Platinum (Not Mine)

Saw that too. Does something look off with this Plat to you? I have a CGC 8.5, and have seen others, but the distortion in the logo doesn't seem to be consistent with the others. Kind of curious (and suspect) as to why it hasn't been graded. I think this book is legit. I have a raw copy that looks ...

Re: McFarlane Bloodshot figure prototype at NYCC!

Looks like “Powder” on Steroids. I’ve been waiting for real, posable action figures for years, but I’m not interested in movie tie-ins. I don’t need my Hulk to look like Lou Ferigno and I don’t need my Bloodshot to look like Vin Diesel. YOU don't need a Vin Diesel look-a-like but potential new fans...

Re: Why is Harbinger 8 a $400 book in CGC 9.8?

I suspect someone finally had a small stack pressed out and submitted. I may have a few myself to dig out. Many copies that I have seen were structurally sound but mostly had a lot of cover waves that could easily be pressed out. These cover waves kept raw copies from achieving a 9.8 grade .

Re: Have you heard about the huge Amazon fires going on?

The thing about forests - they can grow back. The fire destroys and new growth takes its place. New life blooms in a place that had stagnated. Thus the circle of life continues. Wide-ranging fires are one of the ways that nature rejuvinates itself. Rainforest doesn't grow back as mature rainforest,...
