  1. Wow, that is a lot of product. This is good news for the folks anxiously awaiting these. The last DCD figure I bought was Arkham Talia - and it broke. A lot of their stuff intrigued me when it was announced, but I often didn't like what it looked like in person. I found so much of it to be flat and lifeless looking. I won't be surprised to see DC Universe, or whatever it is called, shuttered. That one seemed doomed to fail from the beginning with so much of the expected content MIA. My daughter and I didn't see any reason to keep it after the free trial.
  2. I like that crazy Cobra Commander. I was never a fan Reverse-Suspenders Snake-Eyes.
  3. I think there's a reason why no figures are shown. The height is listed at 9.08" and the stage part looks to be maybe 0.5" to 1" tall. So, I expect that the figures probably come up to around the crest of the second roof (not counting the ornamentation on top the roof). Fighting poses tend to mean bent knees so that will help reduce the figures height. It would also probably work well for 3.75" Snake-Eyes and Storm Shadow. The price almost looks too good to be true for a plastic playset of this size. There's quite a few pieces and a lot of nice painted detail. The fact that Bandai can do this for $30 leads one to believe that other companies do seem to be charging more than they should. Especially those ridiculous cardboard sets from Hasbro.
  4. The picture of Scarlett is beautiful. It nicely illustrates how toning down the brightness of the paint on the figure would improve it. The picture of CC has the Cobra insignia offset and raised so that it isn't blocked by the belt - unlike the figure. Now that I see Baroness up close I see that the gold tips on the glasses are actually little cobras. It is kind of neat when you see what it is, but it'll probably come across looking like two little blobs on the figure.
  5. Yes, but did they do The Wiper? For some reason that episode has stuck in my head all these years!
  6. I feel that 3.75" is ideal for GIJ since the vehicles were always such a great part of the line and the nostalgia. The fact that most vehicles included figures was a great way to get kids buying the vehicles. And once you picked up a vehicles you realized how fun it was and wanted more! I was tempted by the Battle Force 2000 stuff even after I had already sold off all toys in my misguided quest to grow up. I'm following all the Joe news as a spectator since I'm trying to limit what properties I spend money on. However, I would definitely go for a rereleased version of the old Zartan and Serpentor sets.
  7. Looks like the cape, epaulet, belts and scabbard are all one removable piece. I think that the gold version may look nice on the darker figure with the possible exception of the light blue scabbard. But even that may not look bad since it isn't uncommon for a scabbard to be a contrasting color.
  8. I was thinking I preferred the lighter blue more - until I got down to the boots. Ugh! I don't mind the two-tone, but the gold of the boot itself should be black. The gold just stands out too much and constantly draws my attention to his feet. I think the gold looks better on the belts and the floormat sections of the tunic blend better. I do agree that this version should have the red stripe on the pants. I just noticed the red sword blade. That's kind of odd.
  9. Is he a pirate now? I feel there's a little too much going on with the costume. The black floor mat sections look odd and the straps/belts seem a little too wide or too abundant or poorly placed or something.
  10. Interesting. The Snake-Eyes pictures are so dark that I'm not sure what it really looks like. I do like what I can make out. I also like the Storm Shadow but I feel that the material chosen makes it look like he is wearing a bathrobe.
  11. I'm sure I'm in the minority on this but I absolutely love the half swords. Seems like this line is meant to be a recreation of the original toys and that was one of my favorite features of the line and the original stories.
  12. The arrow on that sign had better spin! I really like the spit effect on both figures. edit: I see on another site that the arrow does indeed spin.
  13. I like that these look to have some basis in historical fact. I see some strong inspiration from the retiarius, murmillo & secutor gladiator classes. Looks like they mixed and matched some of the weapons of other classes with the murmillo. Maybe to better differentiate it from the secutor. I've seen the curved sword before, but I'm not sure if it was generally associated with the murmillo class. The mail arm also looks a bit out of place to me but I don't know if gladiators used mail. The more common depiction tends to be the padded or plate armored arm. The company shows some Roman soldier types on their Facebook page. They look more like the ceremonial Pratorian types as opposed to legionaries or centurions. They look nice if not a bit bulky. I'm inclined to keep an eye on this company to see where they go with the military types since I much prefer that aspect of ancient Rome to the gladiators.
