  1. Wanted to share a few shots of my favourite DC Collectibles figure line - the DC Icons A now cancelled line, the Icons were one of my favourite figure lines and had a great mix of articulation and beautiful sculpts. Along with loads of accessories, I’ll never understand why this line got shelved!
  2. Look, I know DC toys have been the subject of hot debate for years now, and McFarlane is no stranger to judgment either, but I can’t be the only one extremely excited by the fact that they’re making D.C. figures right? Sure, they’ve had their issues in the past, and at this point in time, it feels like D.C. is a piece of Mattel and vice-versa, but I for one and more than ready for change. I know a lot of people are upset because it seemed like D.C. was finally coming into their element, and those people will probably be very apprehensive to even buying a McFarlane made product. But the strides the company has made in the last year can not be understated. Their fortnite figures are great, their Naruto and one Punch Man figures are great, I for one adore their game of thrones stuff, despite being made prior to the change to full articulation. And I’m super excited for their other upcoming lines like My Hero Academia and Harry Potter. I know that some people are apprehensive about the possibility that they will be 7” scale figures. To be clear, that info came from an unknown source and has no reason to be trusted, but let me defend this decision as best as I can: A.) This isn’t Mattel. This isn’t Hasbro. This is McFarlane. Not only is 7” the companies bread and butter, but they aren’t beholden to their competitors. They don’t need to attempt to make figures in the same style or scale as them. I know that most adult collectors have a preferred scale of 6 inches, but let’s not be blind to the fact that NECA toys, though not as big of a player as Mattel or Hasbro, is a collectors favorite company who makes purely 7” scale figures. and B.) They might not be true 7” scale. If the rumors and leaks are to be at all believed, and I don’t believe they should be just yet, then the 7” scale described might not be what we think. To explain myself, despite the fact that their stranger Things figures, their fortnite figures, and their Harry Potter figures are 7” scale and true, their Call of Duty figures are marketed as a 7” scale line. Now, I don’t know how many out there have bought any figures from the line, but they aren’t 7 inches. Look at them compared to these marvel legends (picture from the fwoosh’s review). Sure, legends are a bit larger than a true 6” line, but barely. So there’s a chance they fit in with 6” stuff after all. with that being said, I welcome the line with open arms, if not for the very least that it’s something different. It’s a shift in the current layout of the industry, I’m excited to see what it is we get.
  3. Wanted to get some people's thoughts on what they think is the best comic version action figure of Superman. I'm a big Superman fan and just want to make sure I have it for my collection. And if there isn't one now, what would be one that is coming soon (such as what McFarlane may make!!!) Thanks in advance for your feedback!
  4. The newly released Clown Prince of Crime edition Joker by Mezco toyz. A beautiful figure, the overall design is great. The colours are vibrant and the clothed goods are a real high quality. Plenty accessories and one extra head sculpt. If it came with maybe two head sculpts it might just make the that Deluxe Joker less sought after. Overall, it’s one of Mezco’s best and I love the originality in the design.
  5. I have not been a collector of Marvel Legends for too long now. During the ToyBiz days, when I was much younger, I was more of a pick and choose kinda guy. If there was a cool character I was familiar with, I’d pick it up. At this time, however, I wasn’t much of a collector of anything. I loved Star Wars and Toybiz’s Lord of the Rings line, so I picked those up more frequently, but at this point in my life, these weren’t additions to a collection, they were toys that after a few days or a week, went into a bin or just sat on my bookshelf to collect dust. The closest thing that resembled a collection at all, besides my bins of Star Wars, were Pirates of the Caribbean 3.75” figures, all of which were displayed on a black pearl playset on my dresser. As I got older, I became a bit more picky with what I picked up, and back then, in the early days of Hasbro’s Marvel stuff, often times Mattel had better quality with their D.C. stuff. I was big into Batman for a while, and was able to form a small collection of random Batman characters that fitted my liking. But I still wasn’t a collector, I was just a guy that liked action figures. I discovered eventually that figure collecting was something that I was going to be doing well into adulthood (I’m currentlt in my early 20’s) when I first ever got a few NECA figures and realized there was more quality out there than just kids toys. The Clash of the Titans Persues they made (from the remake) and the original police station assault T-800 blew me away at the time. There were actually 2 different franchises you might not expect that really got me into the collecting habit. The first was Character Option’s Doctor Who line. I was never a major fan of the Doctor Who, but I did go through a phase where I really enjoyed it, and especially enjoyed the figures. They were cheap, but had a high quality and were something other than the familiar franchises I was used to buying from. The other franchise was McFarlane’s 5” The Walking Dead comic and tv lines. I know everyone has their opinions on McFarlane, but I absolutely loved those figures at the time. I still love them when I look at them, simply because of the reminders of the good times collecting and remembering the days when the show was worth watching. This line was a wonder to collect for me. I didn’t become a fan of the franchise until the show was on its season, when I binge watched it on Netflix, then bought all of the compendiums of the comics and read them swiftly. Then came the toy collecting. At this point, there were 3 or 4 waves already out, with new waves coming once or twice a year between the comic and tv waves. So I was able to track down the old and the new, making it some of my first real hunting experiences, aside from looking for one particular figure. Dont get me wrong, these weren’t the only lines I was collecting. I was a casual buyer of the early Star Wars Black Series, and was going back and buying a bunch of the Toybiz Lord of the Rings stuff I had missed, but it was The Walking Dead stuff that turned me into the type of collector that was a completionist, and introduced me to hunting for new stuff and old in various stores. By this point, I was full on collecting the Black Series, and a lot of NECA’s Aliens, but TWD was my lady love at the time. Star Wars was always my soul mate, but TWD was a years long passionate love affair. But then McFarlane decided to come up with the nonsensical Color Tops wave which would mix various brands into one 7” scale series. This brought an end to the comic line entirely, and turned the tv line into a 7” static crap festival. And while they began to evolve into better figures over time, I didn’t want them, I had an almost complete collection in a different scale. Eventually, the brand lost almost all of its popularity and now McFarlane doesn’t even touch it. But it was because of the death of my favorite line that I decided to reach out and see what exactly else was out there for me. Now, I could’ve just stuck with what I had, continued buying Star Wars and Aliens and the occasional Batman figure if the desire struck, but I had a taste for collecting and didn’t want to stop. This is what drew me to Marvel Legends. This was around the release of Avengers: Age of Ultron, so I was kind of high off of my first impression of that, and decided to buy the AoA Captain America. I was kind of hooked, but not hook line and sinker just yet. I decided to get the movie characters only. That lasted for a little bit, until my girlfriend bought me the comic Black suit spidey and that was the end. I had to get my favorite characters in various suits, both comic and movie versions, and I had to build my favorite teams. From the moment I knew I was all in, I knew that I was never going to be a completionist. If I don’t care about the character, or can’t fit it into my display, I see no use in buying. If they weren’t on my list, then the only reason I would buy them is to finish a BAF or because I was surprised by how cool the character was despite me not originally wanting them (Bullseye, Black Bolt). When I first started collecting Legends 5 years ago, I had a list, a very daunting list that I thought would go on for years and wouldn’t be finished in all likelihood. But this year and the last were such amazing years for legends, and with the 80th collections and all of these fantastic 90’s X-Men coming out so fast, my list has gotten into the single digits. Doctor Doom is on the horizon of 2020, and aside from some characters like Thunderbird and Warpath and a true 90’s Emma Frost, and a damn classic Doctor Strange, Power Man, and Iron Fist, my marvel legends days seem to be numbered. The movies will continue to pump out, so they may keep me interested in new figures, but the list as I knew it is getting very small. So when, exactly, am I to stop? Ought the list I set out for myself be the end of what I have built? Should I set up rules for myself and limit my hobby and passion? It’s not like I’m going to stop collecting other lines? Or should I? With Star Wars coming to an “end” similar to the MCU coming to and “end” or at least the end of an era, my big tent-pole franchises are ending fast. Soon, my Star Wars list will be shorter and shorter until it too has ended. So should I stop collecting entirely? I mean, I’ve just finally gotten into imports and anime stuff, so maybe those will be the new focus. It’s a very strange time in the entertainment industry, and that equates to the toy industry. Big franchises are “ending”:: game of Thrones, avengers, Star Wars. It feels cathartic in a way. Would I ever even consider limiting collecting if these eerejrb weren’t ending? I know that more brands are coming. I know more lines are always coming. Maybe I shouldn’t stop collecting, but should stop this era of collecting. Look to new brands, diversify. Get anime stuff and Harry Potter stuff, go head first into McFarlanes new DC stuff, go where I haven’t gone before so that the hobby is in uncharted territory for me. I know avengers and Star Wars and all those franchises aren’t really over. No one’s ever really gone. I guess I wonder how you folks feel? If you even got this far. When is it a right time to end? When is it time for a change. To keep the passion alive...
  6. Website Mephitsu.uk has posted an “official press release” from McFarlane Toys concerning their DC Comics action figure line. The line will be called DC Ultra Collection. The figures are confirmed as 7 inch. They include comic book, animated and movie figures. Each figure is listed as an "Ultra release", and they will come in a collectors window box. Also included in the pack are a stand and a cardboard display backing piece. Movie Harley Quinn (Suicide Squad) Comic Harley Quinn Armoured Super-Man Animated Super-Man Comic Super-Man Comic Nightwing Animated Green Lantern Comic The Batman Who Laughs Comic Batman Animated Batman Comic Hellbat Comic Bat Girl Arrow (we assume by the image an Arrowverse TV Arrow)
  7. Paulmartstore added last night a new wave of DC Multiverse with images, the wave was shown back in NYTF and includes the Keaton like Batman, Joker, Poison Ivy and Riddler. The wave is slated to be released this month according to the store. DC Comics Originals Multiverse Figures on Pre-Order.
  8. Recently picked up the NECA Originals street diorama. I was dubious about it but having it in hand is a different story. It’s a fantastic piece and for me, if you’re into toy photography, a must have! Here’s a few shots I managed to take the other night. Many many more to come!
  9. A few shots of the quite excellent Cheetah figure by DC Collectibles Obviously lacks accessories as the whole line does but I’m delighted they’ve released a figure of a character that has very few figures, we need more of these!
  10. A few shots of - what is in my opinion - the finest set DC Collectibles has put out in the years The DC Icons Death Of Superman two pack!
  11. Wanted to share another couple shots of the newly released Mafex Ben Affleck Bruce Wayne Made me realise how few good Bruce Wayne figures we have and this one is a great remedy for that.
  12. Some shots of the new Ben Affleck Bruce Wayne. This is a thoroughly impressive figure only let down by a bit of QC issues, a wrist peg snapped upon first use. otherwise, a fantastic figure. I hope you like the photos.
  13. A dynamic action shot of the Mezco One:12 Wonder Woman This figure got a lot of criticism for having a lack of articulation but honestly I never found it a major issue particularly when the armour and paint job is so well done
  14. Finally picked up the Shazam and Dr Sivanna set from Mattel toys. Mattel have really upped their game and it’s a shame they are losing the DC license. These two have excellent head sculpts, articulation and paint jobs.
  15. The D.C. Icons Supersons two-pack. Two excellent figures from the now cancelled lined by D.C. Collectibles. These two were a massive highlight for me and I still think it’s a shame this line was cancelled. I’ve also shared some behind the scenes photos so you can see the process.
  16. A Shazam! Double feature in honour of the excellent new film! Enjoy!

  18. Meanwhile at Arkham Asylum. Joker: C’mon Bats be a good sport and let me out so we can play! HAHAHA!!!!
  19. Alright guys I’ve got a couple questions for you. About a month ago I ordered the DC multiverse Batman Beyond, but when I got it he had 2 left feet. Little stuff like this on figures drives me crazy. I reached out to Paulmartstore for a replacement, but he was already completely sold out. I got no response from Mattel. So I was wondering. Does anyone have any ideas on how to make one of the feet look like a right foot? Or does anyone know of a decent place I can just pick up another figure?
