  1. I have to agree with what a lot of you have already said. From what I saw, it's no big loss. To answer your question Rollo, for me a modern adventure would work best. A WWII story would pull the character out of the world that the Batman, Superman, and now, Green Lantern films inhabit. Granted, these film franchises don't cross over at all, but there is still the idea in my head that the characters do interact at some point that we don't see on film.
  2. I'm just glad he's not a major villain. As was reading I tried to list acceptable villains for him to play. I came up with Killer Moth. Maybe.
  3. I dunno why, but for some reason, seeing Ultra Humanite's head on Arkillo's body cracks me up. Anyhow, that Stel does indeed look awesome. I'm starting to rethink my decision to look for these on the pegs, rather than order the entire set.
  4. Thank you! I've always said that you can almost always tell how good a live action adaptation will be by how much they makers respect the source. I've said it before, and I'll say it again; It takes some pretty big stones to take characters that have endured and resonated for decades , and say, "All this time they never got it right. I bet I can fix that!"
  5. I fell the same way. I'd have liked at least one good season of Clark as Superman, but then I guess it does make sense to end the "Smallville" series with his final transformation into the hero he was always destined to be. Still, looking forward to the finale.
  6. Thanks for the advice, but no thanks. I don't really buy comics anymore outside of the occasional TPB. I'm more of a figure and movie collector these days. So for me the story having already been done well in the comics just means I have more incentive to buy the movie.
  7. So far the footage I've seen looks great. I'm thinking I'll be able to enjoy this one quite a bit despite the "organic" look of the costumes. It's not nearly as pronounced on film as it is in the movie figures.
  8. i like what you're sayin Jin! Mattel listen to this guy! Seconded!
  9. I don't mind double joints for characters who are limber and athletic enough for it to make sense. I will say that I'm willing to bet there is a way to improve the look of double joints so that they don't detract from the aesthetics of the figure as much. Either way though, I can take or leave double joints. Not the biggest issue for me.
  10. You know, several of my figures have had this trouble too. Always on the right leg. Thanks for the tip Big Bot.
  11. this is true? No more Green Lantern Classic? As of right now, yes. And actually, it's probably because of something mentioned a few time in this thread. Although there are tons of characters in the Green Lantern universe, there aren't a whole lot left that are readily recognizable. All of Earth's Green Lanterns are already done. Many fans might not be able to name the few Guardians who have taken names. Anyone who didn't read follow the Sinestro Corps War and Blackest Night might not even know the other corps exist, much less be able to name the major characters. I know GL fans would love another two or three (or more) waves, but there might not be enough demand from the rest of the DCUC community. Still, we can dream. I want my Atrocious figure!
  12. Ah, the good old days of Mego... Sadly, I doubt we'll ever see a variety of characters that awesome again.
  13. When I saw the actress in costume, I involuntarily let out the loudest, most forceful "MEH!" of my life. As I mentioned in this discussion, the amount of respect a show or film has for the source material is usually as good indicator of how much I'll like the finished product, and usually how well received it is in general. Now, the costume actually looks quite a bit like a costume that did appear in the comics, but if I remember correctly, that version didn't last too long. Wonder Woman's costume is a classic. You can tweak it here and there, as with Superman's costume, but all in all it isn't broken and doesn't need fixing. So even though it looks like they took some inspiration from the comics, it still seems a bit cocky to think they needed something better than the classic. I'm gonna brace myself when I watch this show. As for Adrianne Palicki, on looks alone, I don't care for the choice of actress. Wonder Woman is presented as a strong, highly skilled warrior. This girl looks like she goes to the gym once in a while, but she wouldn't pass for battle hardened. While I was in the service, I worked along side female soldiers who were drop dead gorgeous, but still carried themselves with a toughness that couldn't be denied. Their bodies were shapely, and sexy, sure, but they were visibly strong from our constant exercise regimen combined with the heavy work we did. Trust me, that strength did nothing to detract from their femininity, and only enhanced their natural beauty. That's the kind of woman I think of when I think of Wonder Woman. Not some kitten that's stronger than she looks, but a woman who's very presence is over flowing with strength, both in body, and in spirit.
  14. It really does make a big difference when displaying the figures together. For the most part, the heights are about where you'd expect them to be, and it adds to the "comic book" feel of the collection, as if they were all "drawn" at the same time. In my wildest collecting dreams I envision Hasbro contracting with the Four Horsemen to restart the Legends line. That has about a one in a trillion chance of happening, but still, a man can dream. Hell, while I'm at it, Marvel Toys contracts with the Four Horsemen as well, and revives the Legendary Comic Book Heroes line.
