is there a big list year by year of all McFarlane DCM releases? like that one ML list site?or even a pastebin?
>>10741634>few posts above the bump limit>immediately creates new thread>"new new new" faggotryWhat's up with this shit?
Why is the Flashpoint Barry Allen fucking impossible to get?
>>10741790Because Trod has taken over from Todd. Trod realized that Todd's idea of overproducing and selling cool figures to the mass market didn't work. so now Trod decided to make a small amount of every figure so he wouldnt have to deal with people making fun of his line for going on clearance.
>>10741634Should've used this >>10741386 instead
>>10741790Don't worry your about to have the chance to buy the same figure with a darker red and white eyes.
>>10741807But then he'll have the 1 in 6 chance of it being a speedforce variant that is entirely translucent yellow plastic, so it'll be tough for him to get the version he wants (and he'll have to preorder because it'll sell out in a day or less)
>>10741813Nope. I understand and appreciate the meme but BAF waves don't have chases.
>>10741679There was a leak list months ago but we've had plenty of shit come out that wasn't on it. It was 100% accurate though. The Batman and Robin wave was the last thing on it iirc
>>10741790Just go to target 2 months ago.
We're about to get Kilowog, repainted Kyle Rayner and classic Hal. Will any of you buy the eventual glow in the dark rereleases?
>>10741827>>10741790They are in stock online at target right now
>>10741679>>10741823The is the most recent list I've seen and I think we can consider it legit at this point- 6IN WV1 – BATMAN- 6IN WV1 – TWO-FACE- 6IN WV1 – BATGIRL- 6IN WV1 – KILLER CROC WITH BABY DOLL- 7IN – HAZMAT SUIT BATMAN (LINE ART)(GOLD LABEL- 7IN – MR. FREEZE (BLACK LIGHT)(GOLD LABEL)- 7IN – SUPERMAN (CLASSIC)- 7IN – NIGHTWING (KNIGHTFALL)- 7IN – STEEL- 7IN - BIZARRO & BATZARRO- 7IN – DAMIAN WAYNE ROBIN (DC VS VAMPIRES)(GOLD LABEL)- 7IN – OWLMAN (FOREVER EVIL)(GOLD LABEL)- 7IN – RED TORNADO (GOLD LABEL)- 7IN – ANIMAL MAN (GOLD LABEL)- 7IN – BATGIRL (THREE JOKERS)(JOKERIZED)(GOLD LABEL)- 7IN – RED HOOD (NEW 52)(B&W with accent color)(GOLD LABEL)- 5IN FIGURES WV6 – BATMAN (GOLD VARIANT)- 5IN FIGURES WV6 – LORD SUPERMAN- 5IN FIGURES WV6 – GREEN LANTERN (HAL JORDAN)- 5IN FIGURES WV6 – SINESTRO (SUPERFRIENDS)- 5IN FIGURES WV6 – THE FLASH (GOLD VARIANT)- 5IN FIGURES WV6 – BATMAN OF ZUR EN ARRH
If anyone is interested the spin master batwing is 50% off
A few days ago some alleged listings of Wave 7 leaked for Super Powers and was reposted on the Fwoosh Forum.Currently we have for Wave 6->Batman- (Gold Variant, assumed to be the Tech-Shield version)>Justice Lords Superman>Hal Jordan>Sinestro- (Super Friends)>The Flash- (Gold Variant)>Batman of Zur En ArrhWave 7->Blue Beetle- (JLI)>Brainiac- (First Appearance/Super Friends version)>Kilowog>Sinestro- (Sinestro Corps)>Superman Gold- (Super Powers 40th Anniversary)>Batman MangaWave 7 Vehicles->Blue Beetle's Bug Ship>Brainiac's Skull ShipTodd seems to be slowly building out a Legion of Doom, with the Wave 4 Black Manta, and now Sinestro and Braniac. The line seems to be getting better and better with regular vehicles every other wave. My only complaint is the severe slowness in getting villains in the line.
>>10741839My only complaint is articulation. I understand what they are meant to be but if you aren't going to give us an action gimmick at least give us the articulation setup the 66 line has.
>>10741830The 19.99 figures. Todd can't afford them anymore, they have to be subsidized by Target or Walmart as gold labels. That is what is going on. Line is over boys, pack up.
>>10741847He really needs to do more of those three-packs. The first one was solid for what it is. It'd be a good way to deal with the missing villains. It's kinda bullshit we haven't gotten at least a Joker or Lex Luthor yet. There is guy on etsy and Instagram called Retro Wrestling Revolution who's sculpting and selling his own missing figures for the line, but you have to paint them yourself and they do require a little sanding and prep work before painting(he offers for his friend to paint them, but his friend sucks).https://www.etsy.com/listing/1558942988/super-powers-killer-moth-in-hand?ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery&ga_search_query=super+powers+killer+moth&ref=sr_gallery-1-1&frs=1&edd=1&organic_search_click=1He has a wide variety of characters:https://www.etsy.com/listing/1547353188/super-powers-super-friends-unpainted?click_key=a0a5fd007434ab71c6dbc62037f8546898769a17%3A1547353188&click_sum=74a5515e&ref=shop_home_recs_11&frs=1There's another guy doing the same thing, but his figures are cringy:https://www.etsy.com/listing/1112102019/raven-unpainted-custom-3d-printed-super?click_key=26ded9de9c2381ce08a1b7271ea5684a55c1a117%3A1112102019&click_sum=6a9963bc&ref=shop_home_recs_24&sca=1&sts=1
>>10741874>Wanting to be forced to buy 3 figures instead of the one you wantWhy.jpg
>>10741893That's what happens when you sell classic costumes, you invite the riffraff in
>>10741634No fucking way!>>10741828Nah, unless its like gitd effect pieces i dont think id want the variants.
>>10741634>claw handThat's not how his powers work Todd...
>>10741780Honestly, it's to piss you off at this point.
>>10741780Actually>New new mewGet it right.
>>10741634>Another blank body with little to no detailIt’s over, MLfags won.
>>10741828>classic HalIm literally going to nut if we also get a classic Green Arrow and or a Guy Gardner too
>>10741458Turns out everything but the head and hands were stock
>>10741807>and white eyesThat's Wally not Barry you dunce
>>10741634Why's Animal Man's diaper crotch ass hang down so far in the back? And why do the edges of the lower biceps flare out so much and look awful when posed? Can any sculptor or designer at McFarlane PLEASE for the love of god, test out posing these things while designing them? It's like they go out of their way to ensure they do zero engineering on the joints
Well if you want to complain to Todd about Platinums or something else, here's your chance on youtube:>McFarlane Toys Digital Town Hall with Todd McFarlane>Scheduled for Nov 28, 2023 7PM EST
>>10742049Please understand smol company figures very cheap only 30 dollars each now, budget very tight
>>10742046>Chance to buy the same figureI know
>>10742051Will spam chat with >Steel was cancelled
>>10742061I'm sure they will remove you from the chat if you do that. Besides, he was literally announced to launch preorders next week. So he really was still in 2023,
>>10742063Wish me luck I'm LouSassel6969 on YouTube
>>10742054I know, right? This Animal Man body is basically a blank canvas without any detail too, so literally all they had to do was make the joints look decent when posing and they can't even do that.
>>10742071I think sculptors tend to use McFarlane, Mattel and Hasbro as entry level gigs so if someone is there, they're either good and going to leave-- or bad and can't go anywhere else-- or they're happy in their comfy low wage job + have some allegiance to the brand they are sculpting for (DC, Marvel etc)
>>10742151Hasbro outsources almost everything to people on contract with Gentle Giant. People at GG are masters in engineering, and have pioneered many of the super-articulatd lines of the last decade or so. McFarlane and Matte use almost exclusively in-house sculptors I believe.McFarlane used to get sculptors to sculpt essentially statues first, and then the cut in all the articulation after, which is why the joints sometimes look hideous and never function nearly as well as joints from other companies. Not sure if they still do this all the time, but with how ugly many joints look no and how wonky the articulation is, I wouldn't be surprised at all.
>>10741830>BizarroSuperman the Animated Series version with Krypto sidekick when?
>>10742200Those bicep cuts confirmed ugly. This is the best Todd could do.
>>10742218I do not really buy entirely that McFarlane is still using the same sculptors they were a few years ago now though given some styles I have seen disappear and new ones I have seen appear. So probably I expect the good sculptors left mostly (think guys like the MK11 Spawn sculptor, compared to whoever did Throne Spawn). The reduction in quality is clear.
>>10741938>That's not how his powers work Todd...Better than whatever happened with Deadman, where his spirit possession piece only fits on himself due to specific back plug placement.
>>10742202Can you imagine how much plastic is wasted on card stands people are going to throw away?
>>10742269If they didn't have a big honking DC logo I could at lease use them to display MTG or Yugioh cards or something.
>>10742251May not even be the same sculpts coming or going. It could also have to do with management, art directors, and penny pinchers. Maybe they're given too-short deadlines, reduce new parts, etc. Another issue that comes up when you rely too heavily on re-used parts which is what we're seeing now is that it forces you to make awkward design decisions sometimes in order to get newly sculpted parts to fit and work with re-used parts.
its best to pass on most figures then buy the ones you have interest in at 6 bucks when amazon drops the price low. too many times i have seen a figure i paid full price for on deep discount.
>>10742362That's not happening with the newer figures.
>>10742362the only figs that go down to $10 or less now are movie shit like the Black Adam lineyou will never see a fig people actually want like superman and batman (non retarded variants) at any less than a $5 discount and for a fig like Knighfall Batman you either preorder it or end up paying $40 for it later.
>>10742362Very rarely do any desired figures ever hit that price. Sure, Duke Thomas that has been sitting in shelves for the better part of a year goes for cheap eventually but good luck getting something like Nightfall Batman, AzBats, or Captain Carrot for anything less than MSRP.
>>10742151>I think sculptors tend to use McFarlane, Mattel and Hasbro as entry level gigs so if someone is thereahahahah, no.Go look at the toys other companies make, and you can tell that McFarlane, Hasbro, and Mattel are hiring some of the best. Being an employee for Hasbro is where a lot of artists will feel like they made it in the industry.>>10742218Most companies use independent contractors, but it's not a great thing, since work isn't constant and they have no employee benefits like insurance/stock/paid vactions, etc etc. This is why a lot of sculptors cry when they're let go from internal positions from within Hasbro, McFarlane, etc. Only the most sought after artists actually benefit from being indie.Also, Gentle Giant mostly acts as a studio. Like Extreme Studios or Continuity Studio who did comics for Image, Marvel, etc. What does that actually entail? Usually just steady work. These studios are mostly independent contractors.As for engineering, a lot of it is laid out by Hasbro/McFarlane/Mattel/Bandai/etc themselves. Factories are set up to produce toys a certain why, so either contractors are given material to make room for the engineering or it's handled by Hasbro's/McFarlane/etc internal employees. This is why stuff made by DCC has the same engineering as McFarlane's DC figures, despite the sculpts being handled by DCC's own sculptors.
Spin master batwing is worth the $20
>>10741634I haven't purchased anything in a while and I'm fine with that. Don't give a fuck about Batman or Bat-adjacent characters. Todd can hang up the mantle in a couple and we can see what happens from there.
>>10742399Then why are hasbro toys so bad? Not to even mention mcfarlane which tends to be even worse barring the bad QC on Hasbro. I'd think the best go to NECA, Mondo, Weta Workshop and others that make premium quality sculpts, not low end toy aisle stuff.
>>10742363Because the "new" figures are not old enough yet, obviously you need to wait for deals.>>10742365For McFarlanes, Rebirth Zodd, Endless Winter Wonder Woman, Endless Winter Black Adam, Nightwolf, the Haunt and some mcfarlane animu characters are all hovering around 6 on amazon. Some other comic stuff is higher but still around 10.>>10742387Duke Thomas (the Death Metal one) was a desired figure of mine. He's also the best proof that kids don't buy action figures anymore, as he has an edgy coolness that only appeals to kids and adults with immature brains. Meanwhile "Mature" collectors won't touch him since he isn't memberberries from a comic they read in 1991.
how long till our lord and savior, toddy mac, the toddfather is going to re-release that sweet sweet animated series batmobile with the 2 seater again?
>>10742469Same reason Mattel toys were bad despite having 4 of the most respected sculptors in the industry, who were previously working for McFarlane.>premium quality sculptsNo such thing when hasbro has released some of the best sculpts.If you have any of these lines you're talking about, it's a pretty easy to deduce why some lines look better than others. Just take 2 figures out from each of these toy makers and you'll understand.
>>10742504Todd is gone. There is only Trod now. And you will bow before him and accept what he gives to you and happily pay 30 dollars for his card stands.
>>10742508>Same reason Mattel toys were bad despite having 4 of the most respected sculptors in the industry, who were previously working for McFarlane.Because they were forced to work on spandex garbage costumes with no detail?>No such thing when hasbro has released some of the best sculpts.They really haven't. The best domestic sculpts are always reserved for a few companies like WETA, NECA and Mondo
>>10742469Because even if you pay for decent sculpting/ engineering it means nothing if you cheapen out on mass production. Same with anything.Back in the 70's/80's, Hanna Barbera employed top tier artists like Jack Kirby or Dave stevens(rocketeer creator), but none of that was reflected in the final product. >I'd think the best go to NECA, Mondo, Weta WorkshopThere's likely some crossover between sculptors on stuff like Mondo and NECA. At the end of the day, a company like Mondo isn't producing THAT much product to keep an artist busy or employed full time. You can look at the Four Horsemen, who started off as McFarlane guys, then went to Mattel, then went on to work on a variety of both collectors and retail lines. The big companies like Hasbro and Mattel have a lot of money and are lucrative contracts.
>>10742516>WETAlmao>Mondonah. Their MOTU stuff is kinda cool but wonky overall. Iron Giant is the best thing they've released and it's just the movie CGI file. Everything else is basically a giant retail toy. Neca is great, I'll grant you that.
>Steel up for preorder next weekI’m almost free of this silly nonsense, brosI’ll never have to check this general and see furry shit and shrek supermen again
>>10741634does he come with a leather jacket?
>>10741893Post your toys
>>10742530Steels been cancelled bro
>>10742516>They really haven't. Sure they have. Again, go look at your toys and you'll be able to understand why.And just so you know, Hasbro has used a lot of the sculptors that Sideshow and NECA have used, because indie contractors need work. Same with Mattel, McFarlane, and any other company that has the money to pay their rates, which we've seen from Jazwares and Jakks Pacific, some companies can't despite being large companies.Before Hasbro announced they partnered up with Gentle Giant, they had already been using those same sculptors for their 1:18 figures for a decade, if not longer. They only made that announcement that they were working with [well known studio] because they were pushing the Black series as a premium toyline and they were going to cost $20. MLs cost about $16 or $17 at this point and we all have seen how the black series isn't all that better than MLs.So it was just marketing, to make people something special was going on, when it was just toy making as usual for Hasbro, but at a 20% price increase.Anyway, this guy has been working for DCC for the past 10 years or so, but also did stuff for Hasbro, NECA, Mezco, Toy Biz, and who knows who else.Personally, I think DCC has proven to have the most talented sculptors, since they've been able to produce near perfect 3d figures of 2d drawings by famous artists. And Mondo's BTAS stuff looks worse than DCC's. Not even sure why you think they'er special.
Reveals next week
>>10742587>belt doesn’t have loopsNope.
>>10742527WETA has stuff much better than that, its a silly piece
>>10742550And now Black series is going to be 12 POA soon and is unequivocally worse than Marvel Legends. My how times change.
>>10742587>The destroyed cape of doom is going to the only smiling supermanNO NO TODD YOU HAD ONE JOB
>>10742587>Nightwing on that shitty beetle buckDisgusting
>>10742618I'll take it until mafex gives me a better one. I fucking love that suit.
>>10742587Will they go for preorders with Steel?
>>10742603Anything that isn't just 3D prints of their movie sculpts?
>>10742531Doubt it, but atleast he doesnt have one sculpted on. Shouldnt be too hard to find a jacket if you want one though. As a casual todd buyer im glad to see some new figure choices lately, hopefully we can get a robot man out the line one day.
>>10742618This is what those faggots that whined about classic costumes asked for. They ruined everything.
>>10741839>no New GodsWhy does uncle Todd hate the Fourth World so much?
Todd will never not be shit unless they change the scale to 6 inches and veto the batman side of the IP
>>10742612Hope you bought the other Supermen anon... you'll need to kitbash if you want the perfect figure!
Which Superman figs have a cloth cape like Supergirl?
>>10742787I might have picked up Supergirl if she didn’t have a doll cape
>>10742656>they only use high quality sculpts from their moviesHow is this in any way a negative? At least their Saruman isn’t just a repainted Gandalf like half of Todd’s shit
>>10742828I’ve always wondered why video game and movie companies don’t just give their files to toy companies. I assume Todd was given movie models for Avatar and Fortnite since those actually look like the IPs they’re from and he wasn’t able to take any lazy shortcuts like he does with Multiverse.
>>10742842They don't translate that way
>>10742845Odd, I just watched a video where the studio making Space Marine 2 sent Weta their files to make some multi-part statues. I guess it’s impossible for the retards at McFarlane Toys, they’re still trying to figure out what elbows and knees look like.I’d fucking cum so fucking hard if Weta got the DC license.
>>10742854>I guess it’s impossible for the retards at McFarlane Toys, they’re still trying to figure out what elbows and knees look like.I was entertained by this statement.
>>10742854>statuesWell there you go.
>>10742722>>10742748where are your toys faggot
>>10742901Not that anon but Hush Batman might ship in a couple weeks if he isn’t delayed again. Just pre-ordered a Vulcan Science Officer statue that might arrive the same week.
>>10742923I'm so sick of you posting this that I am going to buy that Batman and send it to you
>>10742931No you won’t. You’re here too often to be able to afford toys
>>10742940Give me an address to send it to. I'm not joking. Merry fucking Christmas
>>10742922>shitty cellphone picsI bet you are the faggot ESL Mexican
>>10742946Yes you can clearly see my brown hands. Let's see your award winning photography.
>>10742722>>10742748love having toys. i feel bad for those here who clearly don't have any
>>10742966>movie toys mixed with comic toysWrong.
>>10742976not a single movie toy there, dumbass.
>>10742966>building teams out of closeted homosexual characters in their gayest outfitsBased.
>>10742981but my true passion is heckin wholesome 90s kenner nostalgia :o
>>10743044What stand base are you using there? I need something new to work with for posing
>>10743065thats a tamashii stand but i don't really recommend them here. they're made for sh figuarts, and anything heavier is less than ideal. you can always tighten the screws for heavier figures but the actual clip part that holds the figure isn't adjustable like that so it's not super helpful most of the time.
how do these nibbas look together IRL?
>>10742931>>10742943Now I'm imagining how on Christmas day retard-anon's doorbell rings, he goes to the door only to be greeted by another mad anon who starts bashing in his brains with the Batman Hush figure so he finally stops posting his shitty updates.I really hope that motherfucker never gets his Hush figure
>>10742674I'm happy, and you're not :)
>>10742674If people asked for it, it's a positive. Just because it ain't for you doesn't mean people shouldn't be able to enjoy their wishes getting fulfilled. I feel like having standard bucks is the smallest problem we face as fans though. Todd should fix those goddamn articulation issues and the accessory bullshit. Why the Superman in >>10742587 has those odd grabbing hands is beyond me. It's really not that hard to just create four types of hands ONCE and be done with it, is it?>Fist hands>Flat hands for flying characters and Speedsters>Grabbing hands for grabbing other characters>Grabbing/holding hands for weaponsThat's basically it, no other hands needed
>>10742674Good. It's a double win since not only are we getting actually desired characters, but piss babies like you get to stomp their feet and sob too. Feels fuckin good.
>>10742966I only see wholesome classic costumes. Where's your weird elseworlds display?
>>10743342Only contrarian homos want that shit.
>>10743218Gloves vs fingernails, anon. Also some of the coolest hands are style pose that Don fit any of those. Also take twoface, needs to have a coin holding hand. Constantine had a cig/book holding hand.
>>10743345Costumes that aren't spandex and wearing their underwear on the outside are the ones you think of like that? Weird take, anon
>>10743232Enjoy buying blue beetle for the 10th time.
>>10743353I will thanks! Enjoy bitching about not getting enough literal who variants only you care about because you can't fathom other people wanting something different from yourself.
>just buy a figure of a character you don't care about, from a storyline you didn't read, that has an ugly, superfluous costume that no one likes>but it's got a unique sculpt!!!!!Fucking autismos lmao.
>>10743362That's how i feel about the flood of literal c, d and e listers that have been coming out as gold labels recently
>>10743353>>10742674>Obsess over a toyline of comic book superheroes>Shit your pants with rage that they look like comic book superheroesWhat led you to this path in life, anon?
>>10743372I'd rather get new characters who are c and d list rather than some Z-liet Batman variants that appeared in exactly two panels just because Todd is autistic and thinks it looks cool. You had your time. Now is the time of the classic costume Chad.
>>10743402Spawn comics where spandex comes last kek
>>10741828Does the repaint Kyle look better than the other two?
>>10743551Internet, phones, video games, etc have out competed American comic books. As comics have declined, so too has the appeal of comic based figures. And this is just over the past 20 years or so. Imagine what it will be like in another 20. Most of the characters we see people pine for here will be all but forgotten to newer generations
>>10743551Because nobody likes looking at fags, nog and cripples.
>>10743576capeshit will never die.
>>10743551I genuinely think the actual reading thing is a big part of it. I remember even when I was a child in the 90s reading was seen as uncool, I can only imagine that it's worse. Then you have the lowest common denominator type schooling like common core dominating public schools and you have a whole generation that struggles to read. That and all the franchises are from decades ago and for whatever reason zoomers think it's cool to shit on anything that came before them. Wasn't like that when I was a kid, but whatever I guess.
>>10743551they buy manga because they are better
>>10743576>And this is just over the past 20 years or so2003 was 20 years ago. People were saying the same thing then. I've come to accept that it's just an endless cycle that will be doomed to repeat through the generations. People will always have a soft spot and an idealized version of comic books when they started reading. Be it in the 80s, 90s, or even 2000s. I specifically remember back in the 2000s when I really got into reading comics, that stuff from the 90s, outside of a few things, were often considered a joke and too extreme. It's an opinion I still hold despite the seemingly huge nostalgia boom for comics from that era that is happening now. It's funny, back in the 2000s you had all these people who whined about how comics weren't like they were in the good ol' days and I couldn't see why they thought modern comics were bad, and I never thought I'd get to where they were. Now, I'm totally where they were and get the mindset. I'm to the point I'm only reading stuff out of what I feel like is obligation, for stuff I've been reading for over a decade straight at this point. I'm just too invested to outright quit something like Amazing Spider-Man, even though it's the worst it's been since maybe OMD. It just is what it is.
Red tornado sold out fast. Didnt even have the chance to check out
>>10743611Tell that to mcu execs after the marvels
>>10743632The post has nothing to do with people saying comics are bad but instead kids not buying comics
>>10743785was it ever not sold out?
>>10743785Mcfarlane is making these in extremely limited quantities now.
I'm not going to worry about preordering this guy. I understand the reuse but the clothing texture kinda ruins it for me. If I see him in the wild I might change my mind.
>>10743803it was alive before marvel movies.
>>10743785Tomorrow is going to be a hoot trying to preorder wonderwoman before the scalpers do
>>10743851Everything is a collectors edition when you create scarcity.
>>10743551Would you really want to read this if you were a kid?
What a little bitch
>>10743897[courtesy of our good friends over at mcfarlane toys intensifies]
>>10743832There is no clothing texture though. Kyle rayner and sinestro, now THAT is clothing texture
>>10743871Sold out in 3 seconds just like mattel creations exclusives
>>10743899Damn I wish I was as blind as you
>>10743897Just cause you're a salty bitch he replied to you doesn't mean you need to post it here.>>10743883Very rarely is someone malicious in this kind of interaction, yet this person apparently harbors such frustration about what's likely an honest mistake (because let's be honest, most people don't care enough to fight it either way) that it's bothering them all day.
>>10743898Mcfarlane makes no sense in what they give out to influencers too. I have seen them get a review sample for an sdcc exclusive - namely the sdcc Batman - that was already sold out days before the review went up. So how is that even helping to sell the figure?
Clothing wrinkles on an android's body is bizarre, especially the belt buckle. No accessories to recreate wind coming out from his hands. Feels like this guy should've been a collectors edition. There's also this Batgirl. >>10743851No jacket, but he comes with a pet.
>>10743906I follow him on Twitter and started noticing at least once a day he posts something passive aggressive before deleting it.
>>10743905You don't really know the difference between texture and the sculpt of wrinklesin the costume. Texture is just the background detail that is automatically spread out over large swaths of the figure in the digital sculpt and can be done automatically with little effort from the sculptor
>>10743916Red tornado is a smooth android you retarded shit
>>10743916What a stupid thing to get your panties in a bunch over. Red tornado should have no texture on his body. That's the point.
>>10743918Don't give a shit about the details of d list favs. You guys wanted reused bucks to get your classic characters so you get this
>>10743851McFarlane is literally Hasblow now. Overpriced, too many reused bodies, and their figures also still haven't improved after years of wonky joints, weird proportions, and ugly crotches
I can't wait to be free guys. I have my mullet Superman pre-ordered and now I just need wonder woman and I'm finally done with 7inch Todd shit
>>10743927Hasbro literally has the cleanest crotches in the industry. SHF are hideous and Todd's are diapers.
>>10743810The implication is if comics were good, kids would read them, if they could even read.
>>10743933>Hasbro literally has the cleanest crotches in the industryMy female boss told said the same thing about me
>>10743933wonky joints, weird proportions and ugly crotches was referring to McF figs. Hasbro's with the overpriced shit, and re-use that McF also now has
>>10743851>perfect flat/flying hands for Animal Man>half-flying hands for SupermanI'm gonna KILL YOU, Todd!!!!!!!!
>>10743924Cranky because your favorite Death Metal OC Donut Steal no one wants got passed over for a figure, aren't you?
>tfw live in Germany>tfw Mullet Supes will probably be hella expensive hereI guess I'll get lucky with a discount after a while because who the fuck in Germany wants a Mullet Supes except for me?
>>10744021Muzzies love mullets
>>10744024Stop fucking with me, muzzies don't buy toys, they only care about hair gel and fanny packs
>>10744042They were available for the longest time, why didn't you get them?
>>10744064they were literally never available, retard
>>10744069They were "literally" in pretty much every online shop, what the fuck are you even talking about?
>>10743946No they would still be watching YouTube, watching drama tweet wars on """"x""""" and playing video games. Comics are just a medium that can't compete with higher dopamine hits.
>>10744013I don't have a list of desired characters. I desire to be surprised with cool designs. If its just more blue beetles i am not buying it.
>>10744064You're not too detail oriented are you? Those are prototypes from before the Todd era that never got made. And yes they are clearly better than the 2pk released by mcfarlane. I don't own dc figures before Todd that aren't Kenner and even I can see that
>>10744078Coming in strong and wrong, huh anon?
Major corporations like Target can't even get a preorder launched on time
>>10744129Well fuck me, I only looked at Beetle and didn't pay attention to Booster. >>10744042 my bad, anon, I feel with you. I wanted Shazam and they took them from us
In 10 years people are going to look at these mcfarlanes with their awkward diapers and wonder what people in 2023 were thinking clamoring for them
>>10744181Most people buying the figures understand that the diapers are annoying. Some people genuinely don't care and hey, good for them. I'd be a lot happier if I didn't pay attention to details or if I didn't find them annoying
>>10744181And their weird, lanky proportions. And janky joints. It's easy to overlook all the flaws when it's literally that or nothing in terms of mass retail $25ish DC figs. There's simply no other option.
>>10744181I'll enjoy my figures today fuck 10 years from now. Today is now.
>>10744181Kek in 10 years the figures diapers would have disintegrated
>>10744203>>10744190Will people even remember this line in ten years? The figures that will be available will be retardedly expensive on ebay. Hell, basic figures like Superman and Batman are $100, ain’t nobody starting a collection if they can’t at least get them. Then what else is there to buy that can’t be found in another line? Eradicator with an unpainted head?
>>10744220This line is only popular because it's the only option. Once another company gets the license (hopefully soon) and makes some decent figures, these will be laughed at. I'm hoping its Jazwares who gets the license after McFarlane. Their Fortnite 6" stuff was pretty good, and they at least have a better grasp on making figures/characters that people want. A lot of their lines since 6" Fortnite have been a nightmare due to distribution, but when the had 6" Fortnite in the heyday, those things were all over every big box store around the world and on every website including Amazon. Just shows with a massive license they will actually put the money and proper distribution behind it.
>Sigh. I'm da Jokah babee. I guess.
>>10744226>Finally get a purple batgirl suit>Jokes on me
>>10744226Love the purple of the shoulders, forearms, and crotch being a darker shade of purple. So sweet.
>>10744217citation needed. this isnt pleather
>>10744216What an infantile statement. You sound like you're 10 years old.
>>10744226As fucking awful as that looks. It look so much better when you can't see the entire figure and be reminded of how fucked the proportions are. You want a woman with legggggggs? Well here ya go.
>>10744278You want a png with artifacccccts?
>>10744285Too bad most of the newfags here probably missed out on the Comedian
>>10744253What a soi statement. You sound like you're a fucking faggot. We could all die tomorrow. Toys are the least of my concerns. Enjoy the little things that make you happy today faggot.
>>10741965Does the figure come with a leather jacket?
>>10744285Gods, I wish Joker was cancelled for this like the Punisher has been.
>>10744285damn im hard.
>>10744366Well, I know it wouldnt be actual leather, but DOES the figure come with a jacket to further emulate that cover?
>>10744384Animal man wears a denim jacket. To answer your question no jacket so there will more than likely be a general release with a jacket at some point.
>>10744389Everyone always says this (namely Robo) but it never happens.
>>10744389Oh right, how stupid of me. Sorry.Back to the figure though, i agree its possible that Todd will make a jacketed version later on. But thats really bullshit of him to do.
>>10744389>>10744421It's Animal Man, guys. This is his 1 and only figure.
>>10744430You don't make a head sculpt like that and release it once.
How big is too big for you guys? To me this is excessive.
>>10743851It really is just the card stand and the bigger box trying to justify a 10 dollar price increase.
Bad news guysThe Grant Morrison jla plastic man baf wave is the next year long target exclusive.
>>10744487Todd should lose the DC License just because I'm tired of this kind of bullshit.
>>10743342as a true toy appreciator i of course have this covered as well. you'll have to settle for something that isn't elseworlds first though. >>10743345you should kill yourself
>>10744518Lmao did I touch a nerve you contrarian piece of shit?
>>10744521>everyone who doesn't like old shit is a contrarian homo >you piece of shitsounds like you're touched, bud.
>>10744523I mean it's true. You're all homosexual comtrwriwns. And yeah, telling someone to kill themselves because they like different superhero toys than you absolutely makes you a piece of shit. Go be a socially stunted retard somewhere else. Babyman.
>>10744518This wave was the defining wave of McFarlane's DC Multiverse run.
>>10744590>>10744603SOMETHING WRONG CHUDDIES??!
>>10742438out of all the flaws on this guy the cape on this pisses me off the most. all they needed to do was make it like 1 cm bigger so it can reach the emblem like its supposed to
>>10744535you're the one mad about people who like different toys. not me. i collect them all. you throw fits and get mad online. the world would be better without you. kill yourself.
>>10744637You can slide it under the cowl to get it there no problem but it'll bunch at the shoulders
>>10743905when is this fucking fig going into clearance, i want it but i aint paying no 30 dollas for it
>>10744652that still means its too small and your likely stressing the fabric by doing that, plus there has been other figures that exist that dont have this issue. the real one was made by using a dinner table as a outline and cutting a piece of it out like a pizza
>>10744511Luck, i dont need luckI aint buying her
Not sure if I want Wonder Woman. I’d never play with her but she’d look good on a shelf with Superman and Batman.
Insider here. Power Girl next summer.
>>10744682>I’d never play with herWait do you faggots unironically play with your figures like some sort of manchild? Their whole purpose it to put on a shelf and only touching it to dust them off every now and then.
>>10744685There will be a big titty sculpt that will be used for her and zatanna
>bitchy faggot who camps here 24/7 doesn’t even play with toysProbably too poor.
>>10744689We aren’t supposed to leak that yet, Todd.
>>10744687>Wait do you faggots unironically play with your figuresYes. >Pew Pew>FWOOSH>BOOMStay mad fag
>>10744647>>10744682>based completionists paving the way to power girl Don’t forget: one copy for play and display, backup in case something happens, and another backup in case something else happens.
>>10744687I do. Multiverse figures are solid enough that when my kid comes in and asks to play with something off my shelt I can just hand it to her before grabbing a couple myself to join her.
Why are there so many bootleg versions of Joker on Amazon?
How do you pop out limbs on a McFarlane? Just heat them up and yank on them?
>>10744792which limbs? most you can just pull on
>>10741634>>10743780I stuck the Red Hood jacket on him to see how it would look and adjusted his hands/glasses/boot tops.
>>10744777cause he's the Joker, baby!
>>10745003I don't have to imagine Sorry you don't like toys nigger.
>>10744986Is the beetle body too big for the red hood jacket? This seems like an easy fix.
>>10744986>>10745028Those red hood arms have curved forearms. They suck.
>>10744986>>10745028>>10745048Can't find jacket rn
>>10744244Someone tell this retard about shadows
>>10742842>>10742845>>10742854Todd started using official 3d files and printing with most of the Halo stuff back in 2008. Like their covenant aliens are based on the original high poly zbrush sculpts before they get turned into optimized game assets.I assume they MIGHT have been experimenting with their Matrix statues as well, back in 2003.
How mad will people who ordered mullet supes be when they get a green skin version?
We eating good Mafexchads
>>10744278Dibecki as batgirl
>>10744892Legs specificallyAlso wondering how to dismantle and reattach the knee joints without breaking anything
>>10745137This, Scarecrow, and their Knightfall Bane are my most anticipated for DC in the new year.
>>10745202Makes me glad I went back and grabbed Joker when I did. I originally skipped him, but I'm glad I didn't now. Thank god for that Catwoman reissue too. Can't wait to get Ivy next month to have all three Sirens.
>>10745137Two-Face and Ra's al Ghul when?
Suddenly, mafexes, everywhere!
>>10745211Not sure how they'll do Two-Face since he never appeared in Hush. But I wouldn't doubt they'll do a shirtless Ra's since he appeared on that poster Jim Lee did with all the villains in it. Two-Face and Penguin are missing though. Maybe we'll get them in the Knightfall line?
>>10745243I don't think it matters if a character actually appeared in the Hush storyline. It's just that Hush had iconic/definitive versions of the Batrogues.
>>10745137something about this has a very "Japanese person drawing white people" feel.His nose is huge. He had a prominent nose in the comics but this just feels way too big
>>10744511that was easy
PRE ORDER IS UP
>>10745265They've been definitely going off of the Hush designs of the characters though, and they're clearly based of Jim Lee art. Mafex seems to be sticking to specific storylines with their DC stuff. Hush, Reign of the Supermen, Knightfall. Luckily, those particular stories feature a lot of supporting characters.
>>10745284I don't collect DC but I can tell this one is going to be after market fodder scalper central. Better get her now anons. I even got one myself just so I can display a $200 mcfarlane figure in a few years.
>>10745314You could end up getting the purple skin variant that will be worth 2 dollars though
>>10745284You guys told me the preorders would sell out in seconds but they are still there
>>10745331Normies don't know it's live
I like that its from "Who is Wonder Woman?" So that will be emblazoned on the box, an eternal spit in the eye from Todd to Wonder Woman fans, acting as if everyone doesn't already know who Wonder Woman is
>>10745284>>10745335Can someone link it? Is this for the US? Because I can't find it.
Once again the platinum is worse than the regular version. Weird.
>>10745349it's just super powers colors
>>10745346that's a sad ass. .. still want her tho.
>>10745352Yeah, bright plasticky toy colors vs metallic colors.
>Anon was right about the platinum
>Out of stockYou dirtbags, this is the first decent figure Todd made of a classic A-lister and I can't buy it.
>>10745354some people want their toy to look like a toy
>>10745354My God a toy has TOY colors??! I
>>10745353She is made using the superwoman figure's legs so we know that the ass is actually good but its hidden, one would have to cut down the leotard to see it
>>10745359>>10745360Sorry, its not a collectible if it looks like a toy
What does he gain by lying about pre-orders up on Amazon? Now I'm just going to forget about it and lose interest then when it does go up for pre-order I won't care because it'll drop in the middle of a six month dry spell where the only releases were Animal Man, furry shit, and Shrek Superman.
>>10745358It's some scam run by that fag who posts screenshots if his twitter account here, toyshiz. It wasn't announced on Todd's main site or any of his social media.
>>10745363are you retarded?
>>10745363>lying about pre-orders up on Amazon?It's been up over a hour now
I don't know what's happening but I'm getting angry and somehow this is Todd's faultI'm just not sure why I'm angry yet
>>10745371You'll be angry when your green superman arrives, and only slightly perturbed when your pastel wonder woman does
>>10745137what the hell did they do to his face
>>10745357Some super powers collector would pay for this
>>10745377They made him...happy
Jokerized batmobile when!?
>>10745382I unironically would buy that if the base color was purple
>>10745382actually good idea
>>10745357Safe assumption that this is what the platinum for nightwing will look like
>>10745368>It's been up over a hour nowProbably because its fucking $40 with shipping + tips
Don't accept platinum figures. Rebel.
>>10745395No one pays for shipping on amazon
>>10745398He's a retard that doesn't have prime
>>10745395Wait til Todd reveals Diamond McFarlane Collector Editions that cost 50 dollars each and come with a lock of Todd's hair and a stand for the hair.
>>10745398>nobody pays for shipping on amazonlol you actually believe that?you only get free shipping if you spend $35 or more, otherwise it's $6 for standard shippingand if you pay for prime you already prepaid for shipping in advance
>>10745403No one without prime pays for it either
fuck it just sold out
>>10745411Yes so you just spend over 35 each time. I've never paid for shipping from amazon, target, or walmart
>>10745414Why does Todd artificially limit the quantities of an obviously desirable figure? There's no way this costs over 30 bucks to make and distribute
>>10745415>Yes so you just spend over 35 each timeare you retarded? the figure is $30, that means you have to add something that's $5 to get "free" shippingdo instead of being forced to pay the extra $6, you're forced to pay $5
>>10745411this is my order >>10745404i do not have prime, but they offered me a free trial while checking out so now i get free shipping.
>>10745422So to you paying 30 bucks plus 6 bucks is better than paying 30 plus 5? Plus you get that extra item. First grade math, hello?
>>10745423You only get limited prime free trials so its best not to waste them if you don't have to
>>10745426>Can't afford $14.99 a monthJesus Christ dude
fuck amazon, fuck target and fuck their $5.99 shippingalmost $40 for a shit figure is absurdi guess i'll just preorder animal man too so i can at least avoid paying their scam shipping
>>10745426this is probably my fifth and it'll cover some xmas shopping. great timing
>>10745322Looks like that'll be a $300 after market figure.>>10745357
>>10745434>doesn't have a red card for 5% off and free shipping but complains about the cost of thingsdumb
>>10745434If you're that retarded that you're paying that much it's on you.
>>10745439You would have to wait years to sell it. It isn't worth the hassle >>10745432I can, I just don't waste money. It isn't worth it when you can bundle stuff you already want
>>10745434Never bought from Target, does anybody know if Target charges for preorders when you order or when they ship? I love both Animal Man and Wonder Woman.
Nah $30 is too much for meh shelf fillers like Wonder Woman. $40 definitely isn't happening even if it were a character I cared about.
>>10745440>doesn't have a red card>applying for a shitty target branded scam cardLOL
>>10745381he looks like his super power is being able to smell farts from 100 miles away
>>10745450They put a ping for the price on your cc that keeps refreshing until it ships, then it posts
>>10745453>doesn't know what he's talking abouttypical dumbass
Wait, which Wonder Woman is the regular one and which one is the platinum version?Also, is this guy worth getting for a Grant Morrison display? I can get him for 17€ (shipping included)
>>10745440are red cards a free thing? is that like amazon prime or walmart+ where you pay like $120 a year to get free shipping?
>>10745450Target is ass about preorders, they don't charge right away but will periodically do balance check on the card you used. It fucks up your bank balance since it's a hold and gets released a few days later. If you don't have the funds at the time when they check they will cancel if you don't update the payment card. it's why I got a redcard in the end and use it only for Target preorders. 5% off and free shipping is a bonus.
>>10745463it's basically a debit card that draws from your bank account. it's free. hell they give you $50 off a purchase when you sign up. if you shop at target, there's no reason to not have it. there's also a credit card but i don't have that one.
>>10745463Free to sign up credit card for Target store only. No annual fee but it has the same interest as a regular credit card so it's only worth it if you can pay it off right away. Gives you 5% off any target purchase and free shipping to anywhere you want. The 5% stack on top of any deals as well but you have to use the Red Card for the purchase and have a Target Circle account which is also free.
>>10745462He's good enough. A little short but put him on a flight stand
>>10745452>Not completing the core JL because poor>not even the Trinity
New thread? I think so. >>10745474>>10745474>>10745474
>>10745468oh cool, so there's no fees for using or not using it? and it just pulls money from my bank account when i buy something?can i use it right away if i apply now or do i have to wait for them to mail me a physical card?
>>10745477you don't even have to use the card in store if you don't want to. it's connected to the target app/your account. i got it for some pre-orders earlier this year. super convenient.
>>10745475there's no need for a new thread. we have five now, retard.
>>10744042>Popped collar version of Boosternice
