Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

Not exactly action figure related, but I opened up an etsy shop today. One of my items is a Hawkeye mini figure necklace.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

@OdoWan...the contrast in quality between the wave one and wave two Superman figures is stunning isn't? The wave one Superman looks superb, while the wave two looks like crap. I think I might've mentioned that I'll be holding out for wave two Zod in his full suit.

Re: The Action Figure and Toy Collecting and Discussion Thread!

I'm pretty sure the wave 2 Superman is the exact same figure as the wave 1 figure, just with a chain. I can't really say that wave 2 looks worse than wave one, since wave 1 Zod suffers from the same giant head problem that plagues Faora, and armored Zod looks fantastic.

Matty Collector has been revealing the SDCC exclusives, and this is the one for DC Club Infinite Earths

Is this a fucking joke? They tease us that it's going to be a fully new tooled figure (it's not) and a fan demanded character (it's not.) You can still walk into a Toys R Us anywhere and find the classic Shazam! and Black Adam two pack. Not to mention the fact that this will be exactly the same as a no frills standard figure, just at a premium exclusive price. All that aside, the figure looks unbelievable awful! That hood! Holy crap, how did anyone think that was acceptable. That element alone is enough to make me not buy this.

It kinda feels to me like they accidentally promised we would see a SDCC exclusive, and then just yanked a figure that was intended for DC Unlimited so that they didn't have to bother actually making something.

The hood looks ridiculous on it.

That was one of the best chapters yet. I like how Clint looks like he's reclining and resting on one of the cupcakes in the fifth picture.

Bonus photo- this was accidental, I swear. I dropped them and they landed in this position.

The fact that you actually baked those tiny cupcakes just makes this chapter epic.

I can't believe they actually came out of the little pans.
