>>8331590I'm more excited on finally getting a good Bruce Wayne figure
>>8331602Can also make a good generic Superman head for everyone complaining he doesn't smile.
>>8331590So glad to see he came out good but I decided to go with the black version instead, that's the definitive Batman look for me, it'll suck to go without the Bruce Wayne head though, may see about getting a cast of it if I canMore interested now to see how Catwoman turns out, considering placing a pre-order
>>8331703I'll never forgive them if they fuck up Catwoman. It's literally an all-black bodysuit.
>>8331703I ordered both because I want Bruce's headYou're right though the black version to me is what Batman should look like
>>8331703>>8331727I'm the opposite. Blue batman feels more classic and distinctive. The only thing I'll miss is the gargoyle base.
@hitoshideathLooks pretty alright with the cape trimmed down as well for the people that don't like the giant cape.
>>8331638Except for having a completely different hairstyle than Supes and still not really smiling, sure. Retard.
>>8331590This would make a really good Long Halloween Batman if they give him longer ears. I hope someone makes a mod.
>>8331602>that pitted gloppy paint
This guy's copy turned out pretty well:https://youtube.com/watch?v=w9s7GJaRZLM
>>8331602why is he so handsome, bros?
>>8332043Because he's white and rich
are enough Batmans out there to be sure if there are or aren't any QC issues yet? I don't wanna miss this.
>>8332054Someone posted this on instagram. Looks like it just needs to be glued back on.
>>8332030Sorry. Outsourced to McFarlane.
>>8332035>no talking just the figureAbsolutely based>Batman is amazingDC bros did Mafex finally save us from this hell of shit figures?
>>8331602Saitama would be proud.
>>8332059yeah, that looks like an easy fix. If that is the only issue that pops up I'll definitely get this
>>8331602overall still looks to be the best comic batman figure to me but this gooped up paint is ridiculous at this price range... this just says how low the bar has been for dc toys.
this release at least seems good enough to make me excited for the five million batmans they've announced
>>8332035That’s some shitty cape and that huge gap on his torso...
Guess im saving money this month...
>>8332220I don't think that's the Mafex.
>>8332375It isn't, it's the Essentials with probably the TMNT Batman.
>>8332220Reverse search gives me nothing. Is this a custom?
>>8331790This looks better, imo
>>8332909Yes, see >>8332838
>>8331788I like the giant cape. You can get him into some really cool dynamic, otherworldly poses.
>>8331908A Long Halloween Batman mafex could be sweet
>>8332220I mean, ngl, that looks good, plus good kitbash anon, but the Mafex one looks much better.
>>8333444The essentials to me is for that 70’s-80’s era design,the Jim Lee well is 90’s-00’s bats so it’s not even comparable but both look good.
I'd love a Neal Adams Batman.
>>8333478I'd take a hear one batman or Jim aparo
WWII Batman when?
>>8331590Please Nightwing next
>>8333582They better do a PERFECT job sculpting his ass.
>>8333592They didn't deliver with cyclops so I doubt it
>>8333598Well I ain't buying then. Nightwing needs this.
>>8333603That catwoman looks terrible desu
>>8331602Pictures like these just send me into a giggle fit everytime I see them because of how much everyone's been clamoring for this thing.
>>8331590Flashpoint Batman next DO IT Mafex.
How are people getting their Batman's? AmiAmi told me it can't ship due to covid, try dhl
>>8332059Oh my fucking god, it's stunning to see how easily ya'll just roll with all these issues on this figure, but if this were any brand other than your brand of choice, you'd be shitting all over it and the people who collect them. Hypocritical faggots.
>>8333646DHL's the only option I'm afraid. But you have 2 months to pay so try combine him with something else in that time.
>>8333650It's just glue. Not like the piece is broken or anything. And yeah, I'll take this over a dozen newer Bandai SHFs with shitty articulation, inaccurate sculpts and no accessories.
Finally got my shipping notice. DHL is usually pretty fast right?
>>8333650i'm not excusing it but i'm not surprised. story remains the same, their choices for the specific versions of characters are on point, their sculpts are on point and their QC is just nonsensical for this price range.
>>8333719Yeah, usually less than a week.
>>8331908A Long Halloween Batman from Mafex has been my dream since they started with these comic figs. The only real figure of him is that old DC Direct fig that sucks.
>>8333592>>8333598>>8333603I want pics of Spidey's ass
>>8331590Dang I'm nyot gonnya wie, this wooks pwetty coow.
I really appreciate the overall design, and have the black costume version pre-ordered, but after seeing more photos, I'm realizing that I want the cape and cowl to look flush and more leathery like it does in the comics, cartoons, and movies. Any ideas on this? Vinyl/leather repair paste or spray to coat the cape? Nice figure, but that cape looks too much like a cozy robe.
>>8333890Just buy one off ebay. They got a shitload of faux leather capes. I bought one for my mafex and it looks pretty good.
>>8333915*mezcoExcuse me, it's late and their names always mix me up.
>>8333915That does look good, but I like to DIY, and with a paste or spray I'm thinking I can cover the gap between the cowl and cape and make it look like one piece.
>>8333974I think looking up fake leather repair can find you what you're looking for.
>>8333646I combined my order with another figure that came out this month. DHL shipping for both was actually cheaper than EMS. Just got my tracking info from Amiami. They say Thursday. Hopefully sooner.
>>8334129I ordered through HLJ, and shipped mine with a figure that I've had i the private warehouse for a few months. When I went to the shipment page it said it was gonna be the same to ship alone through DHL as it was for both of them, so thank god I waited for something else to come out to ship the first fig.
>>8333719Mine says the 6th, but I wouldn’t be surprised if it showed up a day early.
>>8334239Mine's the 6th as well.
>>8334245>>8334267Mine as well.
>>8334239Mine is the 11th.
>>8335317>When you remember your dead parents in the middle of a fight
DKR Bats and Peter B Parker delayed again
>>8335800>Peter B Parker delayed againThank God. I need a wallet break after paying for Bats.
>>8335800Just got the email and so did Bulls JordanFucking Mafex
>>8335800I knew it was coming and yet I’m still disappointed.
>>8335839>so did Bulls JordanGodamnit, I just wanted to jam.
>>8335839Pre-ordered him June of last year. 15 month wait for a toy. God damn.
You guys shouldn't be surprised that Mafex shit gets delayed. Come on now.
>>8335917>it’s ok because they do it all timeReally m8? Just because they do it all the time doesn’t make it ok or mean we should just expect it either.
>>8335909Medicom is starting to give Mezco a run for their money with these delays
>>8335934What made you think I'm saying it's ok? I'm just saying stop being surprised at this point.
>>8333650>brand of choicehow poor do you have to be to have a "brand of choice"?
PSA: I dunno if this an error or whatnot but DHL shipping from amiami today was cheaper than last week. Is this normal?
>>8336444Mine was cheaper than EMS would've been which is new.
Just got a DHL notice that my Bats will be here today. Maybe paying that $18 wasn't so bad after all.
>>8336909>bought two >tfw paid $60 shipping because of Ryza and a bunny Scathach
>>8336444DHL prices are constantly fluctuating from my experience. Sometimes it’s 3 or 4 dollars over ems, sometimes it’s under. I think it’s a better service overall, but I could just be lucky.
I am very pleased with this purchase. He feels nicer than Venom (my last Mafex), cape is a bit unruly, just gotta take the time to pose it too. First impressions are good though. Happy, happy.
>>8337263Chest gap is so jarring.
Is this the best batman?
>>8337334No, but only because it's not black/gray.
>>8337334Yes, but only because it's not black/gray.
>>8337354>>8337545Who do I believe?!
>Batman comes in today >tfw we won’t have another figure from the Hush line for god knows how long
>>8337791two absolute wins by Mafex
Feels like one of the bendy wires in the cape isn't connected to the neck like it's supposed to be. Guess there's no way to fix that.
How is the robocop 3 compared to the original? Is the face likeness the same?
>>8337945They're all the same figure mold, faces are the same. 3 just has the jetpack and no battle damage parts.
These poses need to stop
>>8337945They're pretty much exactly the same. The blue and purple shading might be a tad different, but you won't notice unless you put them next to each other
>>8337945>>83380493 has battle damaged parts too, I bought the 3rd cause I couldn't find the 1st one and didn't want the 2nd one. It's an excellent release, I dare say it's the best qc wise out of all the mafex I've bought.
Head swap oppatunities?https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4MWSNXYo380&app=desktop
>>8338560Middle body is way too slim. He's dressed as a civilian, but that doesn't mean that he loses all his muscles he has as Batman
>>8338584I think it'd look better on the batfleck body.
>>8338610>I think it'd look better on the batfleck body.
>>8338086I base my purchases on how good a figure looks in that pose. HUSH Batman is a winner.
>Batman out for delivery I haven't been this excited for a figure in a while guys!
>>8339143Careful with the wires in the cape, they break
>>8339153If they're of the same quality as the ones in my RO Vader, I'll be fine.
>>8338487Oh fuck I was holding out cause I thought it didn't have them. Does it have the leg holster and muzzle flash too?
>>8339153Break how and where?
>>8338487>3 has battle damaged parts tooNope.
>>8339161My thor had wires coming out right from the start.
>>8339143Here he is. First impressions are good. He feels great. Looks solid and I haven't found too many issues. I will note that >>8339161 is very correct. The wires are fragile in his cape. I have one slightly broken by his neck, not enough to that it causes issues when posting the cape but it is an issue. Not sure if I broke it or it was like that out of the box. They're the same wires that RO Vader had from what I can tell. But the huge cape does feel a bit clunky so I may replace it with something nicer down the line when people start making new capes for this guy. Other than the cape the dumbbell joint in his head is a little tight on mine too but other than that all hail joints feel good. I'd say this is a solid as fuck release. Very happy with it.
Damn... Feeling kind of bummed I didnt pay for this but instead grabbed the Tokka/Razar 2pack. But I still have a few weeks to pay for it. Any chance amiami will decline my order? Email says I have till the end of Sept. .
>>8339506How easy do you think it would be to remove the cape? I'm feeling like I'm gonna replace it with an ebay/instagram one just off looks alone, but if it's a pain in the ass maybe not.
I have so much enjoyment ahead of me
>>8339686the tiger-stripes on your Wolverine look black
How does it scale with Mezco?
>>8339778They're the same size.
>>8339686The only good figure there is Batman
>>8339506Mine also had one wire that was either broken or just wasn't connected right, where it's not affixed to the neck. I can still pose the cape around, so it's not TOO bad, but I worry about the sharp ends cutting through the material.
>>8340385I'll also add that the neck pops out before the head will. Annoying, but it's a shitload less annoying than Venom's head popping issues.
>>8340390Yeah both the heads on mine are pretty tight. After popping them on and off a few times they're both not as bad so it's fine. The neck on my Spidey also popped off more easily than the head so it's not a surprise for me. Other than the wire in the cape I have no QC issues really. Nothing I can legitimately gripe about anyway, just small nitpicks that won't even bug me after I've owned it for a while. I'm going to be curious to see how easily to separate the cape will be. I don't imagine it'll be that difficult. I can't wait to see some of the third party capes people will make for this. The current one isn't bad, just huge.
I think I like hush batman more than mafex spiderman, Im actually shocked
>>8339429Damn, guess I'm getting a 1 or 2. Do RoboCop knock offs exist
>>8337796>>8339506>>8340385I think it is a common problemI bought two and I inspected both while in the box before hand and I could see the issue on one of them. The wire did not go under the cowl while the other one was fine.
>>8340385The wire popped out of my Vader cape too. I pushed it back in so it's not too bad, just gotta be careful when posing it.
>>8340463They put a lot more care into Batman than Spidey.
>>8340381What are you talking about? Robocop is pretty much perfect.
>>8340381Wolverine is good the bicep thing is completely overblown and the only problem with Cyclops is his paint job
All the reviews are starting to come in for Hush Batman and no mention of QC issues with joints. Must say that's a huge relief.Now let's see how long they can keep up this winning streak...
>>8339429You know what, my bad. i just remembered there were parts for me to swap out with and remembered it as battle damage parts. I loved this toy so much once I had it posed out I never bothered with the other accessories.
>>8340876>winning streak>literally just released Shazam which was a fucking mess
>>8339686Own wolvie, cyclops, robocop. Robocop has the best QC out of those 3 by a long mile. It actually puzzles me because Robocop is far more complex than the rest and they just nailed it from sculpt to paint to joint QC.
>>8340897I recall people complaining about Robocop having loose ankles and the chest piece not fitting flush to the body. Minor issues granted but still worth mentioning.
>>8340896They got overambitious with the engineering of the arm joints. Besides that Shazam was pretty solid.
>>8340897I have a conspiracy theory that they basically just downscaled the Hot Toys figure to make their Robocop, so they could probably afford to throw more money at the actual production of the figure.
>>8340876Already hearing multiple reports of broken cape wires in this thread alone.
My Slade finally has a sparring buddy. Also anyone else get feet with uneven shading? It sucks, but it's no deal breaker.
>>8340982jesus christ that revoltech looks incredible. also mafex... screwing up on paint for toe... that's... yeah. hilarious. i get it, doesn't make it a horrible release but damn that's just some amateurish shit that shouldn't exist with medicom.
>>8340982>>8340987I think what they were trying to do was have the paint fading into a lighter color closer to the top of the foot but somebody obviously forgot to shade it.
>>8340954It's a thin wire lined at the front of the cowl rather of the side. Too much movement will inevitably break it no matter how good the connection.
>>8340987AY Deathstroke is what I personally consider to be the best AY figure. He's the most balanced between impressive articulation and sculpt. He also has a very good neutral pose. It's like Yamaguchi decided to try all this experimental new shit on one figure and it worked out.
Anyone here got AY Wonder Woman and Batman? I want to see how she scales with him since I’ve been considering buying her anyway.
>>8341021She’s tiny. I’d honestly skip wonder woman since she’s got more neck than Benedict Cumbledbats. Her head is also small.
>>8339777Because I took a shitty photo. I plan to repaint them though.>>8340897I cannot figure out how to secure the front part of the open leg holster. The back piece is fine but the system for the front is baffling to me.>>8340863I’ve already fixed most of the yellow overspray on mine. Love this figure.
Robo's review is up!https://youtube.com/watch?v=f1Gnx9gjEfM
>>8340982Mine doesn't have paint issues , but the cape has white spots on it towards the neck.
just got my Batman. If the cape was 20 to 25% smaller I think he'd be perfect, but he's still the best Batman figure I've ever seen.
>>8341355>>8341976I mean, he's the only one I've seen point out the legs not going fully straight. Though he is generally annoying since he started the skits and face-cam
>>8342050>I hate when someone has fun
>>8342129Someone can have fun without being annoying
>>8342144I didn’t find him annoying.
>>8342157I bet people find you a thousand times more annoying.
>>8342270Then you're probably annoying
>>8342278And you're probably too self-conscious and too worried about what people can think of you to let yourself have fun.
>>8342280I'm just boring, I know that and I've accepted it. And I greatly prefer my reviewers boring as well.
>STOP CRITICIZING MY BOYFRIEND ROBO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Can you guys quit crying over ecelebs and tell me if RoboCop bootlegs exist
>>8342319Look it up in Aliexpress, if you can't find it then doesn't exist bootlegs
>>8333603cant wait for her to get a mafex fig ;)
>>8342144emgo does it better and puts the skits at the end.
>>8342369Jealous of what, an inflated mortgage and upcoming divorce?
>>8342381Obviously his YouTube success and his huge collection of toys. Do you even collect toys?
>>8342390>YouTube successimagine boasting about a career as a children's entertainer instead of making toys that actually sell
Stop talking about ecelebs, jfc this isn't /tv/.
>>8342394Yeah let's post even more photos of Batman, or talk about the numerous delays again
>>8342392He made his own toyline even. Articulated Icons. They're decent figures for $20.
>>8342390>Do you even collect toys?Do you? post your figures with a message, I dare you, bitch.
>>8342398Let's do that. Post yours?
>>8342405They're on clearance for $20 lol, and it's cause they fucking suck and people don't want them
>>8342409You next bitch tit.
>>8342413And they're decent for that price. I never said or even implied they are good for what he was originally charging. Nice attempt at moving the goalpost shitposter.
>>8342435>moving the goalpostYou clearly don't know what that means
>>8342438If you say so. Post your toys?
>>8342442Racists like you aren't welcome here.

>>8342480So he goes to mexico every time his kid gets sick?
>>8342483Post your toys, Ahmed.
>Ahmed is so jealous of Americans getting beautiful and perfect import toys that he has to derail a thread about the DEFINITIVE Batman figure to whine about how jealous of Americans he is.I bet Ahmed wishes he could vote for Based Trump.

>>8342500How badly do you want to be American? You seem very jealous of them.
>>8342505>America can't make toys>How badly do you want to be retarded
>>8342507Americans may make shitty toys but at least their cities don't randomly explode.

>>8342466Jesus Christ, you really are a bitch.
>>8342533Fuck off nigger
>>8342540Make your own toys and stop relying on third worlds to do it for you.
Just got Batman in. Fortunately I don’t have any issue with the cape wire not being connected to the body. The limbs are attached pretty well and nothing is falling off, which always seems to be a problem with my may figs. Paint is ok. Movement is ok. Only issue I’ve found so far seems to be the dumbbell joint that connects his head to his neck is fused into the neck socket and won’t move, might be able to fix it with heat hopefully.Here’s what he looks like next to my mezco.
>>8342564Enjoying the head swap opportunities a lot.
>>8342564I can’t pose but anyway...
>>8342559Post your own toys and stop relying on Americans to post theirs.
>>8342597americans can afford japanese toys? didnt trump block all foreign shipping from asia due to china virus?
New Rule, no one is allowed to post youtube reviews.
>>8342613Considering you've never posted a toy ever I'd say they can afford it more than you can.
>>8342632>americans have to illegal smuggle toys into their countryholy cope
>>8342616Better rule. Ahmed never posts again and stops ruining threads. It's like he's attracted to the actual good ones and needs to ruin them, like the /toy/nament of power thread. >>8342637>He has to post inane bullshit because he doesn't own any toys and is jealous of Americans that do. Cope harder
>>8342641>share your toys let me steal themregret buying those crapping articulated icons faggo made?
>>8342642Keep shitposting. It just makes it easier.
>>8342585My advice is to look up comic covers and panels or just straight up mma screen shots.
>>8342706Thanks for the tip!
>>8340982Nice shot and nice DAMtoys spetsnaz in the background.
Fucking medicom. Both my batman's masked heads have fucked up paint, the teeth are a smeared mess on the gritting face and the face flesh is painted well outside of the mask on the neutral one. Why do I keep giving this company money? They fuck up the simplest shit.
>>8342649At this point, let's wait for a new thread, this one is fucked
>>8343150Pics? I doubt it's that bad.
