Re: Scarab Figure-Akemi?

I might be wrong about this but I think there's one figure
and it comes with an alternate head that you can switch out with the Scarab
The Scarab figure doesn't come with an extra head. Though she does come with many different interchangable hands:) to hold all the different weapons.
Hope that helps. I also hope that that is accurate. I'm sure someone
will correct me if not.
The Akemi figure is a seperate figure. She has the same body cast with the Scarab costume (see Metamorphosis and Scarab books). But it is a bit
different too. The Akemi version is all black with gloss black and flat black highlights.
The Scarab figure has some dark grey hightlights on her outfit.
But the Akemi is a seperate figure and seperate packaging than the Scarab.
I had the figures on display at the recent conventions, and will continue
to have them for the rest, so you can get a sneak peak at the con.
Also there is a lot of the making and design of them in Reflections #4. Same with the Sickle!

This may be old news, but I thought some of you might be
interested. . .
It's true! Bendis and Charlize are working on Jinx together. He would always call me from his meetings with her really happy and excited with how well they get along and share the sensibilities for the character.
Charlize Theron is set to star in and produce a big-screen adaptation
of the graphic novel "Jinx," report the trades. The Oscar-winning actress will play a bounty hunter who teams with an accused murderer to recover millions in mob money. Comic-book god Brian Michael Bendis, who penned the original story, will write the script.

Party Weekend! (Terry Lohmeyer)
Pittsburgh was GREAT!
Thanks for all of those from this board who dropped by.
The con even made a Kabuki cake for the 10th year anniversary of Kabuki and brought it to my panel and then to my table where I cut cake and served it to everyone.
It was a great con. All 3 days!
The con does a lot of great charity work.
And they raised a lot of money at the art auction for the Make a Wish
I donated a Daredevil painted page that DD reader and art collector Paul Ragsdale from this Kabuki board won at the auction.
Terry Lohmeyer, Cathy, Melissa, and the bachlerette gang were wonderful!
Thanks for including us in you special weekend
Lots of new readers at the show, that may end up posting here as well.
Looking forward to seeing all you new readers from Pittsburgh on this
Had a great time last weekend.
Drove to Pittsburgh on Saturday morning with 4 of my closest friends.
We checked into our hotel & then headed off to the con to stalk David
& Andy Lee. They put up with us and were super nice the entire day.
Then we had dinner at a Japanese steak house. Then we went back to
the hotel to sing karaoke & await the "entertainment" for the night.
Our exotic dancer had a Superman tatoo on his arm, so after he danced for
us we ended up having a twenty minute discussion about comics.
Sunday 3 of my friends went home, but my friend Kathy & I stayed
to stalk David some more. He was again very sweet to us, and then starting
talking about how it has been scientifically proven that all reality is
illusion and that perception affects your reality. Now I have to go do
some research on quantom physics so that I can understand what he was saying!
David, if you read this, thanks so much! It is always a pleasure
to see you!
