  1. 1. Which is the better specter

    • Glow in the dark variant
    • Normal version


Recommended Posts

The normal version. I hate glow in the dark toys.

 

I do have to add though that the Sectre took me very much by surprise at how well he looks. For such a simple design, you wouldn't think there's much to him but he is a very nice action figure and might be one of my favorites of the wave.

I'd have preferred the normal, but found the GITD one first. Consumed by paranoia that I might never see one again (ie Artemis, wave 8 and 9) I bought it. Opened it. A week later a found several of the regular version. Oh well...

I'd love to have your problems. ;)

 

Still no sign of this Wave 12 around these parts.

 

Hell, no sign of Wave 11 for that matter. @soap@

Did you order a set from Mattycollector or any of the other online sites?

Heh - while that was my original plan, I was so amazed to find the full set at Wally, and after last month's fiasco with Matty's sale (adding to the paranoia), I just coudn't pass it up. Plus I saved on shipping. That too. Just something I'll have to live with... :)

Wave 11 came from Mike's Comics 'n Stuff and Wave 12 from Mattel. After wasting TOO MUCH money on Wave 10 and tracking down a Gentleman Ghost (thanks Lady Jaye) last year; I regrouped and decided to just get stuff online. Which is why I really dislike the exclusive Wave crap.

 

Really, if they want to do that; then offer full sets for sale via Wal-Mart.com. I'll order it, and then hawk the rest I don't want.

 

Such a pain. It's tough to enjoy this line. :(

The reg one, the GITD one is a novelty.

Draven

The Glow in the Dark is a cool feature and in the dark that one is the better choice, but IMO the regular figure, for just normal appearances is the better looking figure.

 

^--- Both of these

 

The GITD one is gimmicky, but really cool cause they got the color of the plastic not as greenish as the usual GITD stuff.

I was originally gonna hold out for the glow-in-the-dark. But I found the regular first and it's SO striking I bought it. I've since seen the glow-in-the-dark and wasn't as impressed, so I passed on it.

 

Regular all the way! And so weird cause I was so anticipating the variant!

Hey Everyone,

 

So i got the Spectre variant and can finally add my .02 to this thread. The variant is by far superior. Not because he's glow in the dark (although that is cool) but because he is ghosty translucent in regular light. THe regular version looks too solid corporeal. When the variant is placed in a group shot with other figs. he stands out as "other worldly." I got a staff from the DC Dr.Fate to put with him, should look great.

 

regards

Joshua

I only turn the lights off when I sleep So I wouldn't get to see the glow in the dark much anyways! & honestly if I did see it I'd have to cover it up or put it someplace where I could not see it cause the light would bug me :P I cover up the alarm clock as well just fyi LOL
