I didn't see this posted, but I was browsin through Mattel's new online shop to take a peak of their new MOTU heman and beastman fig and found images of Adam and Starfire. 20 smackers for these seems good.

 

I guess they added Starfire because of her revealing outfit

What is the url for the new Mattel on-line shop? I didn't think it was up yet?

 

And yes, the figures look great.

Here's the link

This set looks great. One of the best so far. In case anyone was wondering, this two-pack will be exclusive to Mattycollector.com.

Starfire is definitely a big improvement over the DCD version, which was a bit of a disaster....at least to me.

Y'know, at first glance, I thought these were the Infinite Heroes versions, and figured they were cool. But finding out they are actually DCUC is stellar! $20 for a 2-pack is right on! I'll be checking this site every day in anticipation of them being in stock!

I'm not a true DC guy (outside of Batman and Superman), but I don't know if I've ever even heard of Adam Strange. And the only reason I know Starfire is from the Teen Titans cartoon. So, these seem kind of like odd choices to a non-die hard DC guy.

 

They both look good, though.

I love this line, and Starfire is one of my favorite characters. I will be getting 2 of her for sure- Her head would make an excellent Dark Phoenix custom.

 

I wonder is this picture is just the prototype- Starfire's boots are just painted on, and they are not sculpted like her gauntlets. The middle part of her breast area looks awkward too. I wonder if the final product will at least have the top of the boots sculpted like her gauntlets. She is still an improvement over the DC Direct Starfire.

I can't believe people are saying Starfire looks good... it's painfully obvious that torso sculpt wasn't intended for a nearly-nude character. She looks like a stripped Barbie doll with a painted-on bikini. I suppose this should come as no surprise from the company uptight enough to ban Lobo from a normal release. :unsure:

I wouldn't say he's trippin about nothin. Generally prototypes are remarkably similar to the released figures. It's unlikely they would use an entirely different sculpt (say, one more suited to a nearly-nude character like he mentioned) for the regular figure. If anything it makes less sense to expect something different from the prototype than it does to criticize it.

 

I think it's important to voice concerns prior to release. It may not get things changed, but acting like sheep by excusing everything and deciding from the start you're going to love a figure no matter what is crazy.

ive been dealing with this line to long to know that the proto will not look exactly like the finished product.(it will be better) the 4h always uses the same bodies for the protos.....thats why all of the men seem the same size on the protos(like aquaman was big on the protos, but was smaller tan bats and supes when released) you should know that......baa..baaa

Ah, that's somewhat comforting. I hadn't seen the original prototypes for the older figures, so as far as I knew it would be like Transformers or Marvel Legends, where the only difference between the proto and the retail release is that the retail release is painted worse. :P

 

Still, given that Mattel seems to be far more concerned with maintaining a family friendly image (like they'll apparently even get onto fansites for allowing adult language in their forums, according to he-man.org's FAQ), this is one fix I can see them failing to make.

mattel knows that some of its characters arent "kid friendly"....thats why they put those characters on line. you have to be 18 to buy them.

I thought the Aquaman prototype looked better than the released figure, mainly because of the orange upper body (it went from brilliant orange to dull, yellow-orange). But he still came out great. Other than that I've never noticed much difference between protos and actual releases.
