  1. Its good that you received it. And I'm glad that you're enjoying the figure, bro.

  2. Did you receive the figure yet? Just wanted to make sure it arrived in one piece.

  3. The figure is on the house, free of charge. token of my appreciation for helping out a fellow collector in the past. I just wanted to make sure it was a figure you wanted to have.

  4. LMK Eric if you want that Fang man or not.

  5. Actually I wanted to know whether or not you wanted my spare? A few months back due to DR's mistake a Fang Man got lost in the mail and then resurfaced a month later. So they ended up shipping me two instead of one.

    If you want it, its yours just give me your address and I'll mail it next week.

  6. Yup, still in the collecting game. Good to see you still have your collection I was just curious as to whether or not you had Fang Man?

  7. My sentiments exactly. If Snyder approaches this interpretation of Batman in a similar tone as TAS then he should have no issues. I believe there can be a even blend of both realism and fantasy. I want to know that Batman's complete rogue gallery and allies aren't off limits. I wouldn't exactly say that just yet. Snyder has a knack for visuals and thus far he has already went against the grain aesthetically when it comes to Batman by giving him a far more comic inspired look as oppose to all black rubber. So I wouldn't rule out a blue/grey combo yet. Personally I think we should give grey and black a shot before we start talking about other combinations. If it looks remotely similar to that pic then I would have no objections to it eventually surfacing.
  8. I'm inclined to agree, this is why I regard Begins as the best of Nolan's trilogy as it was the more balanced of the 3 when it came to comic elements and heighten realism. By the time Nolan got to the 3rd installment I believe things had become far to grounded which I too believe was to overcompensate for the camp the Schulmacher era brought about. Suffice to say I was ready for Nolan to end his take on the character as I don't believe the series could really advance any further. I'm hoping for the best from this new adaptation of the character and hoping we get a more definitive take and examination of the character in possible future installments. Visually Snyder has nailed the character as if he jumped right out the pages of a comic, hopefully the rest will follow.
  9. Hey Eric

    just curious as to whether or not you still have your MOTUC collection?

    I know you've stated that you've stopped collecting MOTUC, but I just wanted to

    know if you've kept the essentials.

  10. Its clear that they weren't focusing in on Clark the mild-manner reporter, but Kal'El/Clark Kent. Perhaps they want to save some of those elements for a sequel, which makes perfect sense from a story-telling standpoint. Its also an extreme likelihood that their version of Clark Kent mild manner reporter will be more akin to the one observed in STAS as oppose to the bumbling clumsy Clark depicted by Reeve. Personally I prefer the former. I'm also going to assume that when Luthor eventually surfaces, he will not be the Hackman version and that too imo is a plus. Take no offense yojoebro, but you seem to be more grounded to the nostalgia that is the Donnerverse, which is fine. However MOS seems to be gearing up to be its own thing. Likely because modern audiences would have found such a scene to be cheesy and cliche. Clearly Snyder is trying to set a precedence regarding this modernize take on the character. Leaping tall buildings in a single bound and being more powerful than a locomotive is unnecessary as the film is saturated with enough action to demonstrate that. As far as his Americanized values are concerned, that too was showcased in the film. The kiss between Clark and Lois is the only thing I really had an issue with. I felt that this was something that could have been held off until the sequel. I would have liked to see their friendship as more platonic then progress from there. Since this is the first outing they don't need to blow their load in a single film, which is another reason why I'm happy that they didn't showcase mild manner Clark until the final seconds of the film. Save some things for a sequel. I believe it was implied early on, it just wasn't outright stated. From the very beginning its pretty well established that Kal'El was Krypton's first natural birth in centuries thus making him unique While everyone else is genetically grown to fulfill some type of role or purpose. If Zod is a soldier and general then one can easily infer early on that that was what he was engineered for. Not only did Zod explicitly state his purpose to Clark while onboard his ship in the middle of the film, but its easily discernible prior to Krypton's destruction. It likely didn't need to be established beforehand because he likely was never placed in a situation in which it was an option until his final confrontation with Zod. Again its about subtlety as its already discernible that he has a respect for life and against physically harming others. Well the Lego DC universe is suppose to be more lighthearted and fun. The whole cast including Batman are rather fun.
  11. I understand MOS may not have been your cup of tea, but I can't even remotely fathom SR looking good in comparison by any stretch. Besides superior special effects, what was ONE THING that this new monstrosity did better than the first two Reeves films? Well for one, MOS's approach to Zod made him a bit more fascinating foe than the one dimensional villain Zod in S2. A Zod who's primary concern was the preservation of his people and culture as oppose to the Zod that simply wanted revenge and to dominate earth. I also believe that MOS had a much deeper exploration of Clark's relationship with the Kents a bit more than the Donner films did. Krypton and Kryptonian tech appeared to be far more compelling. With that being said, there is room for improvement with sequels, but a bit of leeway can be given considering that this is the first outing to a more expansive cinematic DC universe. There are things that MOS did better than the Reeve films and vice versa, however unlike the Donner series MOS has the potential to be a well rounded and satisfying film franchise overall than what its predecessor was.
  12. I would certainly hope so. I can just imagine the effort and time to expend arranging those many Joes.
  13. Congratulations yojoebro82, rather creative for a marriage proposal Now I'm curious as to what the ceremony will entail.
  14. So am I. Cesspool has always been one of my favorites.
  15. Hype and the tendency for masses to jump on any hype bandwagon may contribute to why so many buy into TDKR, some even had their minds made up prior to the release. When the hype wears off and the film starts to seep in then some will eventually start seeing TDKR more objectively. This is precisely why I see it more as a Nolan superhero film than a Batman film.
