Not really that fussed about being super-accurate with customs at the best of times, but it does make it easier and fun when the source material gives artists opportunity to put a personal spin on things without it breaking the flow (e.g. characters having a completely different look in another comic that's running at the same time, or really inconsistent between scenes/issues, or with some IDW TF titles I seem to recall that characters weren't even consistent about alt modes or faces let alone more minor details).

Wasn't going to sample the NeMA Fiendish Feet (they're mini figures based on the 80s St Ivel yoghurt pots) but saw a Pharoah Nuff that already had a case, and that's also on an Egypt theme...

LEGO 11033 Creative Fantasy Universe - I already own this, but US$50 for 1800 pieces is too good a deal to pass up. I realize that by this logic, I should've bought out the entire stock, but I lack follow through.
LEGO 31144 Exotic Pink Parrot - I'd thought about the blue version, but never picked it up. I'm glad I didn't, because I like this color scheme better.
Block Tech Mount Up Deep-sea Angler, Flametrail Phoenix, and Greenback Crab - I already owned the crab, but bought a second because the joints for the arms are very similar to Kre-O ball joints. They're all plastic, no rubber, so they aren't interchangable with Kre-O. That is, I can't use these ball joints with Kre-O sockets, or vice versa. But, on their own, they're a decent enough match to look good alongside my Kre-O builds.
Snap & Switch Gloomy the Naughty Grizzly - A brick built, pink, chibi bear with what appears to be blood dripping from his mouth and splattered across his chest. I couldn't pass this up. Upon building him, I realized that there is more red stuff on his paws.
I looked up the character name, and it turns out it's an anime of 12 episodes, about 1 minute each. Gloomy is a Grizly adopted by a man as a pet. But, Gloomy doesn't understand the pet/owner relationship, because he is a bear. So, he mauls his owner every episode. It is glorious. Despite the copious blood in the show, the red stuff may be pomegranate juice.

Not sure if it's an official character or a gender-swapped Luke. But also looks like this image which regularly comes up on Facebook:

And there's a nice story about a wedding present from Mark Hamill:
Tony Stark (A.I.) Iron Man
Bought this wave at half the seller's price, making it very cheap.
Dragon Stars Gohan Beast Form (Super Hero)
Marvel Legends Marvel's Infinity Ultron BAF Wave:
Hawkeye (Clint Barton)
Bought half-price from an eBay seller.
For a figure that's supposed to have switchable parts, you'll still need heat or boiling water to be safe. Snapped the very end of a peg in the first couple of minutes and had to drill it out. But the truly unforgivable thing is that the knees don't have the full range of motion they're designed to -- if moved back much at all an irregularly-shaped piece inside the joint causes visible stress marks in the plastic in front. No excuse for it.
The sculpts of some of the other characters are... variable. Might be persuaded by a cheap Allen or Robot out of that wave but Eve has much thicker lines on the face print and the earlier waves seem to have come and gone.
