I'm really not a fan of the Earth-2 redesigns, so I guess I'll be passing on those. Also, Wonder Woman seems an odd choice. Wasn't she killed off in the first issue? Why not Hawkgirl instead? The cartoony War figures don't appeal to me, either. Yeesh, I'm a downer, aren't I?
i like Alan's redesign fine. but Flash...not so much. it is odd having Earth 2 WW in that line...but i like that version of her costume so i'll get it too. maybe the new Earth 2 Batman. not sure. and yeah, Hawkgirl or Dr. Fate would have been better choices than WW.

Yeah, Jay's costume is certainly the one I've had the hardest time getting used to. I also don't like that he and Alan are no longer contemporaries. Green Lantern and Flash must be best friends no matter the generation or universe.

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

The upcoming Toryn Farr action figure in the Black Series looks eerily accurate. I always thought Toryn Farr in Echo Base has a resemblance to Helen Hunt or Leelee Sobieski and her first action figure does have a Helen or Leelee vibe to it with those facial features.

Finally - those of you who wanted to reenact scenes from Mad About You or Deep Impact have the customizing fodder you need.

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

First look at the "Justice League: War" figures and I guess they're designs in the DTV as well for that matter.

Not sure how I feel about them.

A close look at the upcoming 6" Han Solo from the Black Series, based on his classic appearance in A New Hope.

OMG! From NY Comic-Con (cue John Williams music):



KNEEL BEFORE (4-inch) ZOD!



And there's some Batman/Batman Returns stuff too:









Gallery at Toy News International

All are part of the 4-inch DC Comics Multiverse line, which also includes figures of characters from the Arkham games.

SHUT UP AND TAKE MY MONEY

EDIT: If that's a Batman Returns Batman they messed up the Bat-symbol. The one on the fig is from the first movie.

These are probably prototypes, so hopefully they will correct that later on.

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

They do look great, but I am still bitter about the switch to 4" scale.

In other news, it looks like the four figures that were shown for the cancelled 2014 DC Universe sub: 90s Aquaman, Ice, Superboy, and Damian Wayne will still be coming as quarterly releases throu Matty Collector. Containment Suit Doomsday will be the 2014 SDCC exclusive. I'm very glad they we'll at least be able to end the line with a few really great fan-demanded characters.

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

That's not a bad Michael Keaton head and face sculpt. It's not perfectly spot-on, but it captures 1989-92 Michael pretty well and you know without a doubt that it's the face of Keaton's Bruce Wayne.

not crazy about the scale either, but Batman and Superman look great.

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

That's not the best Christoper Reeve Superman I've ever seen made into a plastic toy, but it's pretty close. The "S" on his chest isn't quite right (the Reeve costume didn't have raised edges on the big "S", so it would have been better for this figure's symbol to be perfectly flat and blend into the rest of his torso) but other than that he looks great.

Batman 89. Batman Returns costume had more segmented armored abs.
