  1. Lol. I'm betting that diaper is most likely of a bit more rubberized material. If anything, McFarlane has gotten pretty good at using that type of material to keep the aesthetics of the figure while allowing more articulation than one might think. I'm sure it's something he derives from his well known insistence that his products look like art.
  2. It's finally good to see McFarlane doing what he said he would do by letting the fans decide what direction the DCM would take. After a year of giving us every reason under the sun why he (not the fans) think the BAF process was a waste of time he finally realized it's what the fans truly want. I must say, he's getting better. It took him almost 15 years to realize fans wanted to actually pose their figures themselves and didn't want what amounted to a statue with a neck swivel and a single arm hinge just to put on a shelf to look at. Now let's see how long it takes him to finally buy into the
  3. I don't expect to find a single one of these out in the wild, just like I've found no other of the Classified figures. Don't know if the stores aren't ordering enough product or they're just selling out that fast. My experienced toy hunting eye tells me it's more product shortage though. Gotta love the pre-order process. I hope Hasbro is smart enough to give this guy the Hasbro Pulse army builder treatment that they gave some ML grunts. They'd really be missing a huge cash grab if they didn't.
  4. I hope this Snyder Cut becomes cannon. It's still up in the air if it will be but I think they're just waiting to see how well it's received. There's still a lot to be seen if it meets the hype, but I'm super hopeful it fixes all the BS Whedon left behind. I'm particularly stoked about how he plans to de-pussify the Flash character. I love Affleck as Batman. He's made a living outta playing a douche and he fits the Bruce Wayne character damn near perfect. Seriously, it fits him almost as well as RDJ fit Tony Stark. I hope this project convinces him to stay. I just wish he'd stop insisting on d
  5. We can just agree to disagree then. I'll concede that the WWE line has its problems, and yes, they are much worse with the female figures. The 5'1" (if that) Alexa Bliss should not be anywhere near as tall as the 5'10" Charlotte, nor should the doughy post UFC Ronda Rousey have better ab definition than Carmella or Bayley. The female figures have always been a mess and an afterthought, which is a damn shame, but to say Mattel is the worst in regard to scale, when considering who had the license previously is just a little much. Yes, fictional characters are afforded the luxury of artistic inte
  6. You're splitting hairs. Your trying way to hard to disprove on small part of my statement, but I think my comments are mostly valid. I said it wasn't perfect. In my eyes there is still a slight difference in these figures but yeah you could go through any toy line and find exceptions to any rule. Cena and Orton are closer in height than say Kane and Rey, but in general there is an apparent difference, especially in the premium articulated line. Even in ML Hasbro has some very glaring size problems but in general what Mattel does wither WWE they do pay attention to size differences.
  7. First off, I know Luke and Karl got WWE figures, that's why I referenced "characters that already had figures". Also, my comment for McFarlane was in how he said the fans would drive how the DC line would go, but when most of them (not all) said they wanted them to scale close to ML he basically just told the fans they did NOT want that and did his own thing, which is 7". That's his jam, he knows what he's good at. I'm just glad he finally caved to the fact that the "fans" wanted articulation (action) in their action figures. I personally feel he would gain a lot more business if he did g
  8. Eh, these remind me of those terrible Jakks Pacific WWE figures. The torso even looks identical. Either way, at 7" these don't look to be in scale with the current WWE figures or AEW figures so I'll just wait till these guys either sign with AEW or TNA licenses another toy company who has the sense to do figures to match the current scale. Starting a line with a new scale with a foreign wrestling company like New Japan Pro is one thing, but getting in on domestic characters that either already have figures or that most people want to be made to match the figures at 6.5 scale is almost poi
  9. Whaaaaat? Only 2 Batmen? What about Nightmare Batman, Armored Batman, Battle Damaged Batman, Asleep at the Computer Batman, Smug Batman, Slightly More Smug Batman, Mid Costume Change Batman, Bruce Wayne with a Mustard Stain on His Tie Batman, Looking for the bathroom but secretly looking for clues Bruce Wayne, Gold and/or Bronze variations of any/all of the above Batman? Boy, McFarlane is really losing his touch.
  10. It's not Whittaker's fault for the downturn of the show. Much like Ruby Rose, she was just unfortunate enough to get mixed up in a show that chose woke politics over good writing and producing. I guess it's too complicated a concept to just cast a female in a good role and leave all the preaching and editorializing for one to seek out on their own, if they so choose. But in all honesty, these "showrunners" know what they're being hired to do, so it's kinda not their fault either. It's kinda like expecting a slug not to be a slug. It's a sad thing that she might be leaving because of it, but ma
  11. I swore off Jakks Pacific many moons ago and vowed never to buy another one of their products until they got their act together. Their WWE and UFC lines were horrendous, having characters like Test and Rey Mysterio, Jr. standing at the same heights and using the same mold for BJ Penn and Chuck Liddell. They were just churning them out with little regard to size, weight or scale. I was happy when they lost the WWE license to Mattel, who immediately improved on those shortcomings, though it also took them several years to do it respectfully. Now the phenomenal Jazzwares is about to re-launch the
  12. Getting it. Whatever it takes, that damn thing is mine. Not a huge fan of NECA or the 7" scale but this is part of my childhood. How crazy is it that this era is the go-to source of material of choice when today's age is supposed to be the peak of entertainment?
  13. Much like The Umbrella Academy and The Boys I think it's only right that this series has to deviate from the original story line to appear that it isn't just the same old story. I think people are giving it too hard a rep. It's actually pretty good if not holding to the original plot. It kinda of it's own thing with familiar characters. I think this is something originated by the translation of The Walking Dead comics to the television series. Can't hate them for trying to keep things fresh and different.
  14. This is awesome. Like that facial expression was made for this. Great work.
  15. But, whyyyyy.....? Can't they just do Green Lantern or Cyborg or Shazam or Doctor Fate or Starfire or freaking anyone else. DC Multiverse is not 50 different versions of Batman. It's getting ridiculous at this point. Batman with a guitar? Seriously?
