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.
