  1. I'm so confused by what I'm seeing. Why is it Darkseid's New 52 design instead of his classic design? Why are there 5 points of articulation instead of seven? Why is the Batwing deliberately blue, misproportioned, and less detailed and accurate than the ToyBiz vehicle we had as kids? Is this really what most DC collectors want these days?  I just... don't get it.

  2. This looks cool, but I wish Obi-Wan didn't have so boring a costume design. George Lucas's movies always had such elaborate designs with rare or unusual fabric textures, even for peasant characters like Owen or Old Ben. Disney has been dropping the ball on that far too often.

    Anyway, with any luck it'll take some inspiration from John Jackson Miller's Kenobi novel. Hopefully it'll be more like The Mandalorian and less like The Book of Boba Fett.

  3. When a movie gets pushed far back, it usually results in the toys being released way ahead of time and poor toy sales. It happened with G.I. Joe: Retaliation and Black Widow, and it will probably happen again with Transformers: Rise of the Beasts and The Flash. WB must have a serious problem with production for them to risk shooting themselves in the foot with the merchandise sales.

    These arent toon renditions tho. They are the characters depicted mostly realistically. They never had pulsing veins and muscle striations or abs or even seeing individual hair and you never really saw nails or wing skin or holes in their wings or really any texture at all. It was a 2d cartoon, these are their renditions that are more tangible in reality. So pointy chests dont work. 

    Yeah but squared-off "pointy chests" are every bit as realistic as the man-boob look. Just look up photos of some of the famous bodybuilders from the 1940s, 1950s, and early 1960s and you'll see what I mean: Steve Reeves, Clancy Ross, Reg Park, Jim Haislop, Larry Scott, etc. They all had that look because they did neck presses back then instead of the modern bench press, and comics and animation have been mimicking their body types ever since. Since both body types exist in the real world, I'd like to see the Gargoyle figures have the type that was in the source material.

  5. It will be hard for me to buy another 6-7" Robocop, especially since NECA is releasing their Ultimate version later this year, but I'm all in for a RoboCain or the samurai robot from Robocop 3. If the feet of the ED-209 are articulated, I'll grab a couple of those, too, since the NECA version didn't have that articulation.  It's certainly an exciting year for us Robocop fans!

  6. I have a very hard time believing anything DC could outsell Marvel in these MCU-crazed times, least of all McFarlane's ugly figures. They have the grossest gummy-looking paint apps, limited range of motion on the joints, and a character selection mostly focusing on the latest comic stories instead of popular classic renditions. (Is anyone else sick of Heavy Meta Bats and Supes clogging up Target shelves and falling down on you every time you try to check the Transformers pegs?) I'm much more inclined to believe Ting, especially since he's given a clear explanation as to how the calculations were, how shall we say, less than scrupulous.
