  1. See where you keep shooting yourself in the foot is by throwing out some blanket statement phrases. I won't touch these things with a 10 foot pole...BUT I wasn't the target anyways. I think a lot of white dudes/people miss the fact that most action figures/dolls.....are white people. That's not a slam...it's just a fact...and EVERYONE accepted that fact. At least 95% of my action figure collection is white...some of my fav characters are white, and it's cool. This is a company realizing that there are MORE than white people out there. That's all. Say what you will about the apparent transgenderness of this...but there are representations of Black people, multi ethnic people, Asian people, Latinos....they buy stuff as well. Speaking freely I know I tend to gravitate more towards either armored/masked figs or Black figs...because I can identify with them but that's few and far between (I'm in the midst of kitbashing a Mythic Legions fig...looking for a Otho or Black dude head). This line will mean quite a bit to a good deal of people. And it's rather disheartening to read people make it about a "SJW" or sociopolitical issue. It's not. In a backhanded way...it seems more about a sect of people who thought nothing when every fig/doll looked like them now being upset because a company is realizing that there are even more people out there who don't look like the historically targeted demographic and are willing to purchase items...especially if they can instill pride and acknowledgement because the item they have looks like them. Just think about it that way. Like I said...I'm not touching these...but I know there are countless kids/parents out there who will truly appreciate the options this gives them.
  2. McFarlane could get away with doing both. The Armored fig could be from the 2016 game (which I would buy) and I'll 100% be grabbing the 2019 fig. Yeah it's the "white thing" lol. He always was...(like Master Chief) but the whole armor...it could be anyone. No matter what this is a slick fig and I'm grabbing it. I wanted the 1/6 version but I missed out on that one.
  3. This one with the covered arms looks sooooo much better
  4. Great looking fig although I'm disappointed by the exposed arms. One of the main draws about the Doomguy was he could be/look anyone under the armor. It's a minor nitpick but with the arms showing it highlights who he is. That's not a bad thing, but for me I liked the fact that masked/armored characters could be "me." Plus why have all that armor and kit just to leave your arms unprotected????
  5. For real!!! Or at least give us Batman "alternates" : Owlman, Grim Knight, BWL, Talon, Prometheus.
  6. One thing that stood out for me in the interview was MacFarlane "finally" getting his head wrapped around the notion that people want great sculpts AND articulation...not statues. Honestly I think he always knew that but just didn't care smh. His deluxe Spawn is probably one of the best figs ever and was in high demand...but instead of following that theme we got more staction figures. Since Fortnite is killing it for him I think we'll be on the right track with DC...but the make of break of it will be character selection. If we come out of the gate with the Trinity and figs we already have from Mattel...I think it will push people away. Get some unmade characters out there!! In teh end 2020 is going to be interesting and hopefully we can see some sculpts of what's planned soon.
  7. Please give him a cool outfit and I'll be willing to see what's what. Manu Bennett gave us a really good Deathstroke so I think that Morales has some big shoes to to fill. At least we get another shot since JL is dead in the water.
  8. $%#$^G what is this!!!!! I'm just stunned. Y'all got Wildstorm, Milestone, Vertigo, DC proper...and someone threw this out and people said "okay"....I just can't today lol. Honestly I know there are some folks who are liking these. Not mad at them. I just know for ME....not interested.
  9. I keep going back to this...just...stupid. Between this line and the lucadores one...I'm wondering who in the heck is in charge. As one off lines ok, but DC killed off DC Collectibles (which should be bread and butter...all you have to do is make classic/current costume figs OUTSIDE of the Trinity, GL, and Flash) but wants to push this. I'll be watching what Mcfarlane does with DC. Hopefully I can get some never made characters in plastic...because I can't count on DC Direct to do it smh.
  10. Combine that with the new lines immediately rehashing Bats/Supes/WW again it just gets old. That is a nice looking fig...but I'm good on Batman. I'm sure the next one will be Supes/Flash/WW/GL. We got them all...and the price I'm sure they'll be asking is just a bit much to jump in...only to know it will probably get cancelled.
  11. Gotta disagree...McFarlane CAN do great sculpts and articulation....just for a min he was on some BS. It seems like he gets it now (look at Destiny, Fortnite, Color tops or whatever). No one can ever say his figs are trash...they just complained they were statues (I was one of those people). But I have to give him credit now and I have more than a few of his recent offerings and am 100% happy with them. I'll be getting the GoT figs, I hope more Destiny stuff is in the pipeline, and hopefully he'll crank out some good DC offerings.
  12. All I know is based these DC figs aren't gonna be cheap. I've seen more than a few people here knock that articulation but the latest offerings have been on point. My Borderlands 0 is fantastic. So are the Destiny figs. My biggest concern is I'll have to deal with yet another wave of Big 3 nonsense and figures I'm really pinning for won't get made. I need someone to stop being scared and hit the fringe figs. My shelf is crying out for Hardware, Icon, Wetworks and the rest of Wildstorm!! All I know is that I am hoping that McFarlane does a better job with DC than DC Direct is doing....those jokers are just totally messing up what should be an easy lay up.
  13. Someone is seriously messing up at DC. You change the size (NO ONE has figured out that toy collectors kinda dig scale) and you do.....Batman for like the millionth time!??! How many Batmen/Supermen/Wonder Women do people need? If that was a cool new character in the scale...I may have bit. But another Batman...out of scale with my DC and ML figs that will probably run 60 bucks....bye Felicia. Hopefully McFarlane will be about something. I'll keep saying it: there are FAR TO MANY DC characters who have never seen plastic that I am sure people would love to have. I know I have mine: Icon, Hardware, Grifter, Wetworks, Zod, Jon Kent, Batman Eternal Azreal; and I know others have theirs...between this and those awful lucgadores....DC Direct is on life support. I don't understand how it can be so hard for these folks to not get this action figure thing figured out.
  14. Totally and utterly mindblowing stupid. DC has and entire stable of figs that people would like and someone said ok to this? This is why DC is failing in the action figure market. Same characters just dumber looking...luchadores???? Really???? How about just cranking out ACTUAL COMIC FIGURES!??!?! Like Wetworks, Milestone, Wildstorm, Classic DC/New 52/Rebirth/Elseworlds characters...you know ones people would actually buy. Heck if you want to mass market...I'd be ok with JLU (as long as I get Devil Ray).
