/dcg/: DC Generalno DC thread in the Catalogue so here we are
gonna have to grab this guy
>>9176964This is a really cool looking figure. Somehow though, Hank Henshaw is burned into my mind as just this colossal asshole of a villain, and for some reason, that makes me hate him enough to not want him. Just looking at him pisses me off somehow. It's specifically him, too, I dunno why. I have plenty of other villain figures in my collection, many of who have done some really rotten things.Maybe Death and Return of Supes just made a particularly strong impression on me, as it came out when I was very young.
That's sick, I hope they make a Superboy and Steel as well, Eradicator I could go either way on
>>9176964Is that a gun? I will have to write to WB and complain about this!
Suicide Squad was in stock on Gamestop.com. Gonna get my King Shark and sell the figures off.
>>9176964>fucking hank henshaw
Thoughts on this 3'75 inch line? Not really a six or seven inch guy, I down right refused to buy anything until that scale until I saw Figma Rem and the McFarlane SM. Now after even more time has passed, I'm willing to try every (non-chinese) toyline a chance.
New LOBO looks fuckin sick.
>>9178079sold, instantly. that looks amazing aside from the plastic chain.
>>9177323It's just a high powered flashlight bro.
>>9178079>no cigardisappointing but not unexpected.
>>9178079His face looks off. Plus no shotgun. Frickin dc
>>9176968Such a realistic and dynamic running pose, only capable because of McFarlanes outstanding engineering that totally isn't outdated at all.
>>9178103The face looks spot on, but yeah he needs a shotgun.
>>9178118guy needs the necklace shotgun and the cigar, but you could kitbash most of that at least
>>9178079I hate that the hook-chain is plastic. Ah well I guess I could just reuse the old multiverse hook.
>>9176976I always associate Hank Henshaw with the black and red costume he wears later>>9178124You shouldn't fucking have to thoRemember when toy companies had some balls and worked around these restrictions? Like when Mattel wasn't allowed to give Jack Slater a gun in their Last Action Hero line, they just included his gun with Benedict - or the mail-away Stormtrooper Han Solo's weapon was included with Leia.
>>9178223>Remember when toy companies had some balls and worked around these restrictions?You sound like a fucking retard.
>>9178230YOU sound like a fucking retard
>>9178223>>9178238No seriously, he's right. I don't think you understand how licensors work.
>>9178223>Remember when toy companies had some balls and worked around these restrictionsYeah I got a few Transformers submarines
>>9178079It looks like he's sick alright. Lobo looks like obo
>>9178118>The face looks spot onLol no he looks like Chucky
>>9178079>>9178103>>9178118>>9178324His eyes are a bit too far apart and his face needs to be longer vertically. More space between his nose and mouth, longer chin, etc.
>>9178079todd has ruined the characters that it seemed like he would get right since they are dark and edgy like his brandsomehow he will ruin the three jokers wave when they are supposed to just be generic basic versions of all the core batman characters featured
>>9178439they're fine, storm's garbage is over priced and mezco makes shitty dolls
>>9178470woke tard, cum that guzzle SJW garbage hasblow forces into their product to appease lefty twitter culture with progress dolls.
>>9178476Hasbro is the same as macfart retodd, you like shit figures
>>9178554mcfarlane believes in the power of comics gate and pushing back against the woke narrative. hasbro forces employees with sjw diversity training.
>>9178557>comics gateUnironically lamer than gamergate. Fuck off.
>>9178557>>9178601Huh? It's just a shitty looking figure.Wtf is going on? Does McFart have a samefag shill like Neca?
>>9178604Hasbro went full woke and will ruin marvel legends with sjw pandering.
>>9178607does Papa Todd live rent free in your head?
Why does Papa Todd attract so many Marvel Legend tards?
>>9178079face looks ugly but thats fine for loboalso did they remove the necklace cause of the "nazi" iron cross?
>>9178675yes, WB forces Papa Todd to play along with twitter sjw and not upset the woke agenda.
>>9178675Probably DC and WB saying no 'religious' paraphernalia in their action figures. His cross is often quite different and rarely looks like the Iron Cross anymore, so I'm guessing it leans more towards religion as to why it wasn't included.
>>9178079Meh, I can live with the wide face. It looks like how he does in the newer Teen Titans comics. I'm just surprised he has double jointed elbows. Can't forgive that chain though, should have been real metal.
9178693why are you announcing reports? thats against the rules anon, freedom of speech is important.
>>9178079That looks like shit and the fact he doesn’t have his shotgun due to DC pc pussy bullshit makes it worse. Easy pass the Storm collectible one is better anyways. Mcfarshit loses again lol.
>>9178079I'm gonna wait till we see more pics of it in-hand before I pass too much judgement. The face isn't the WORST but yeah, its not that good. Looks better than the Mattel one but thats not saying much.
>>9178675Looks like they're dropping it in the comics too.
>>9178700Nah, this looks much better than >>9178079. In your drawing he actually still has a strong chin and his face isn't really wide at all. The sculpt has a weird, almost square-shaped face. Lobo has always had a long, lean face, so Todd's sculpt makes his features look oddly squished.
>>9178725It gets way wider in later issues but yeah I can see what you mean.
>>9178725Lean? Do you think there's no skin under the mutton chops? He's got a thick ol face almost all the time. Strong jaw yes, lean, no.
>>9178079I hope this is printed on the vest.
>>9178730Ooh, yeah, I see what you mean. That's pretty dang wide.>>9178732This is sort of a hard thing to pin down since so many artists have drawn, redesigned, and reinterpreted Lobo over the years, but my primary memories of him are from the 90s, where his face (mostly) seemed to be pretty long and lean to me. I mean, he's still a big guy, the type that I would guess has a healthy layer of fat over his muscles from the excesses of his lifestyle, but generally I don't feel like his face was depicted very wide/fat/thick back then.
>>9178756And yes, I know that's not an issue from the 90s, it's just the first closeup of his face I could find on short notice.
>>9178756He looks identical to Jeffrey Dean Morgan. He should play him in a movie.
>>9178736It is on the stormI've been shitting on the multiverse lobo reveal like everyone else but I think we would be much more forgiving if the storm figure didn't come out last year
>>9178079That REALLY fucking sucks. What a shame.
>>9178764He's said he wants to teased that something is in the works.
>>9178079Looks cool to me desu
>>9178079This looks terrible
>>9178439The hair is the most fucked part of the figure, looks to clean amd preppy for a bad ass.
>>9178828His hair is the second worst thing, the face is retarded. If it had a decent headsculpt it could be better than the Storm since that one is just a big chunk and not too fun to play with
>>9178972The Storm one is really posable and has great accessories though?
>>9179069Great accesories, although I hate that Farrah Fawcett hair they gave him that everybody poses him with, they should've just given him the dreads and the Saiyan hair.But no, he's not really possable, arms go 90, ankles are useless, knees are barely 90, hips don't even kick straight. He has a ton of joints that give him great personality in semi-dynamic poses but that's it.
>>9178079>no shotgun>no cigarsI'll stick with my storm figure.
>>9176964I hope this means we'll get Eradicator, Superboy, and Steel too.
>>9179090He can kick straight forward and the knees go a little bit more than 90. The ankles also pivot in more than they pivot out which is more important for posing. He can really hit the poses I need him too though and his overall articulation is great for me since they all work together so well. His torso joints also get pretty good range which helps with dynamic poses.
>>9179165He is so damn thicc. Is that how big he was in Injustice?
>>9179174Oh yeah they're all really thick. The rest of the DC guys are too. I can't wait to get Ares in this line but I'm probably skipping Supes and Bats.
>>9179165>than they pivot out which is more important for posingBarely, a little too wide and they don't land flat, much less range than the standard. >He can really hit the poses I need him tooWhich are semi dynamic and nothing more.
As someone who doesn’t own a Darkseid figure is this one worth getting?
>>9179740It's the currently most accessible one, so if you like it go ahead. There may eventually be a comic version, so it's up to you.
>>9179740I wanted the one with the vest, but simply couldn't find it where I live, so I got that one instead. Quite satisfied with it, the promo pics make his abdomen look emaciated, but the actual figure doesn't suffer from this. Really nice sculpt and articulation overall, I'm even thinking on making him a cloth vest for a more comicy look.
>>9179766Yeah I would prefer the more traditional armored looking one but it’s supposed to be a store exclusive so I just don’t think I’ll ever be able to find that one and I do like this one as well that is a good idea maybe making the rest of his vest out of cloth
>>9176964god I hope we get a regular superman in this style, Hush supes was close but this is perfect, bonus points if we get a smiling head
>>9179740if you do end up getting the mcfarlane, at least get the fully clothed version
has anyone tried using NECA's Kong for a Grodd/Mallah custom? seems easy enough but im not sure if he looks gorilla enough for it to work.just found this custom head that would definitely help https://www.paulscustomcollection.com/product-page/neca-custom-king-kong-head-sculpt
>>9179779someone on fwoosh combined the injustice grodd with it and it looked pretty decent
>>9179777Anywhere I can pick this up online for non-rape prices?
>>9179777I’m worried it will be hard to find then the non armored one will sell out and i won’t be able to get either fuck when did toy collecting get so stressful
>>9179937>when did toy collecting get so stressfulSince pic related.
Does anyone know a batmobile that's in scale with Mafex Dark Knight Batman 3.0?Even better if I can stuff him in the driver's seat.
>>9180003The Spinmasters Batmobile that's meant for it's 12in figures scales pretty well with 1/12 stuff. You can even fit two figures in the cockpit. Just be aware there aren't any seats in there. I'm thinking of 3D printing some for mine.
>>9179729>Barely, a little too wide and they don't land flat, much less range than the standard.No not barely. You should heat up yours it sounds like it might be stuck.>Which are semi dynamic and nothing more.They're not Revo tier but he can definitely hit the poses he needs to. Way better than what McFarlane has offered so far anyway.
From mafex's event
>>9180507Well, that's just Prime.
>>9178079Looks great!Oh, and I bet McFarlane will make a bike for him too! I'm so excited!
>>9180587He looks too neat and pretty (???). Too well groomed
>>9180536Kinda surprised they went with this design rather than the one from Death Metal, or the one from that iconic art of him. I'm quite fond of the bulbous look of the armor in those mentioned arts, but the figure looks great nonetheless.
>>9180642make your own, it'd look better
>>9180642I disagree, although you could say he could be given more rough look. I see he got some tears in his shirt, but it's not painted in his skin color. >>9180653Stop being faggot.
>>9178079Y E SI've been wanting a Lobo I can pose with the McFarlane Supes. The Storm one is amazing but he's way too tall to work with seven inch figures.Looks neat!
>>9180536looks cool, cant wait for the headswaps with the original superman
>>9180536Oh, he BETTER come with reality punching hands.
>>9179777He was up for a few hours I didn’t think it’d sell out. Glad I snagged one
>>9180536Is Todd even trying with these?
>>9180860yea he is, why are you mad jelly Papa Todd makes great action figures while Hasbro spend resources on woke education for employees?
>>9180864Is that why Todd bends the knee and won't include guns like the pussy he is?
>>9180879you're a moron
>>9180884Cry more pussylips.
>>9180864>>9180879>>9180884>>9180889You're both faggots.
>>9180889hasbro sucks and hire woke activists instead of researching development for toys
>>9180892there's at least 3 people there, smart guytho i wouldn't be surprised if thats one guy arguing with himself before i jumped in
>>9180894Todd didn't even have to hire anyone and he still bent over backwards and spread his asshole to let the douches take advantage of him.
>>9180900>implying amerimutts media isnt obsessed with woke politics
Are you idiots really arguing that a toy company should fuck up their relationship to Warner Bros and lose a multimillion dollar merchandising contract by actively disobeying a company edict?Christ. It's Todd McFarlane, he knows how retarded it is to not include guns, he LOVES figures with guns. The second they can include them again, he will.
>>9180913It's just the one guy. He's extremely stupid.
Why are you idiots responding to scalefag? Just ignore him and report his low quality posts.
>>9180536Dont care for this at all but the face sculpt is great.
>>9180913Are you implying Todd isn't powerful enough to do what he wants? You're pathetic.
>>9178079>No dreadsThank you Todd. If I wanted to nitpick I guess I'd want him to have more hair, but this is perfectly fine.
>>9180536Fucking hell that looks great.>>9180647isn't this the one from Death Metal?
>>9181160Indeed, but I was thinking this look from Capullo.
>>9181169Got pics of the iconic one you were talking about?
>>9181172Maybe it's just 'iconic' to me, but I meant this one by Jim Lee. I think it's also the first one that pops up on Google. I've noticed that there's always a fair bit of shading on him, so seeing him as a figure gives him a bit of a different look.
>>9180436What about that 1/12 one by Soap studios?
>>9180536Fucking Christ, this looks fantastic. Now give me Mullet and Electric Superman. Do it, Todd!
>>9181315Sure, but that costs $500. The Spinmasters one costs $20. Although I just reread that it's apfor TDK Batman so the Spinmasters one is probably out. It's a different, more comic booky design.
>>9176964>everyone is praising the new Mcfarlane Lobo and Super Boy Prime.>they both look like shitty statues with cuts like every Mcfarshit toy. >they will buy them see how shit they are and try to resell. That’s what happened with Flashpoint Batman and other Mcfarshit toys. I’ve seen people selling them on eBay and other social media. The toys suck admit faggots.
>>9181430What's wrong with you? Just because you're bitching like some old grandma doesn't make it a fact. I have only heard positive opinions about Flashpoint Batman and lots of the other toys. Just go back to the Marvel general to shit that one up.
>>9181440He's just trying to stir things up. When it's that blatant, it isn't even worth half a thought.
Stop responding to morons, it's clearly bait.>muh reddit spacing>muh subby posting pattern>muh scalefag posting pattern>he menshuned mcfartshit, I GOTTA respond now!Who gives a shit. Don't give them any (You)'s, just post your fucking toys and talk about them. If you really want to get back at them use zoomer lingo like mogging, it's like pouring vinegar on an ant.
>>9181421Money isn't as much of an issue for me, I want to know how they look together and if the mafex will fit inside.
>>9181440>>9181464>it was weak bait and you’ll feel for it.
Well I got these in from Gamestop. They're...Well Shark's great. Mostly. Todd cannot create a good looking articulation point to save his life. He doesn't have any knee articulation, which I guess, he wouldn't be able to use it very well anyway with those shorts.
>>9181594Faces are fine overall. Nothing especially horrible like Aquaman. But McFarlane toys have definitely fallen pretty far behind on capturing likenesses. These are serviceable at least.But everyone having trigger fingers is such a giveaway at what was taken away.
>>9181594I swear everything DC does is just one blunder after another. It's so disappointing and just embarrassing. I swear the brand is just fucking destined to be an embarrassment. Why can't they do anything right?
>>9181600Those eyes aren't level.
>>9181594>Todd cannot create a good looking articulation point to save his lifeprobably because that's not his job
>>9181600>But everyone having trigger fingers is such a giveaway at what was taken away.no, it isn't. for some stupid reason almost every mcfarlane figure has trigger fingers.
>>9181646He's in control, he can say "hey this looks bad" and have them actually do it right. He doesn't, so it's his fault.
>>9181594>>9181600I'm ashamed to say that I was excited for these at one point.
>>9181594christ these paintjobs looks like they belong on something thats 5poa at the dollar store
>mafex making a new ZSJL Cyborg with mask and roboarmsbrb cumming
>>9181659They all feel bland. It's that off-white gray-cream they're using on a lot of them. There's nothing here that pops at you. I think the orange on Bloodsport is wrong, too. It should've been something more metallic and darker in shade.
>>9181600>But everyone having trigger fingers is such a giveaway at what was taken away.Are you saying superman was meant to come with guns?
>>9181667i think if there was even the slightest evidence of shading they'd look a bit less bland but theres nothing that brings any detail out its all just washed out in solid colors
>>9176964Chances that we get a repaint in Sinestro corps colours?
>>9181692Are you saying he wouldn't have been better if he had?
OK. Get the other four Supermen from Reign and give us a Superman with smiling short hair and mullet heads.
>>9181665Pics? Will he shelfwarm as hard as the first one?
>>9180507why is the belt sculpted halfway on the midriff, and the Jim Lee Huntress had booty shorts. This could have been great.
How is the Steppenwolf figure is it better than the McFarlane Darkseid?
>>9182556God this design sucks ass
>>9182607As supposed to a bearded dude in a horned helmet? Steppy was never cool.
>>9180507>>9182547She better have some incredible ass tech behind that cape.
>>9182620Maybe not but this is way worse
>>9181594does the Shark have a joint at the knee though?If so, i'll probably make a slit on either each side of his shorts to make sure it bends.
>>9181733>MAFEX SinestroPlease God...
>>9182607Shut up, the design is great. I'd rather have a unique design than a realistic dumbed-down version of the original costume
>>9182981K but it still sucks
>>9182997That's your opinion. Many others like it. People really need to accept the fact that people like different stuff and that your opinion isn't always a fact. It's like talking to children sometimes, I swear. Sure, we're talking about toys but get a grip.
>>9182981>20 fingers>4 toes>armor made of staplesit's shit senpai
>>9183084This is the MCU Destroyer debate all over again. Also, now you're acting like having more fingers and less toes is a bad design? Damn.
>>9183091>This is the MCU Destroyer debate all over againHow so? MCU Destroyer was actually inspired by the comic design, Steppenwolf is just a dumb alien in ugly armor with the name slapped on.And having two toes per foot with ten fingers per hand is absolutely retarded, yes
>>9183100>How so?Because people were complaining about literally the same thing, him looking like he was full of staples.>MCU Destroyer was actually inspired by the comic designThen we can easily take Starlord as a fitting example, no difference. Don't act like Steppenwolf was a beloved character who definitely requires the same outfit from the comics. Let directors have some leeway for once without bitching about everything.>And having two toes per foot with ten fingers per hand is absolutely retarded, yesI'd love to hear your explanation for that one.
>>9183110>Let directors have some leeway for once without bitching about everything.Snyder has had nothing but leeway and it got us a completely garbage cinematic universe
>>9182794I was messing with him more last night and he DOES have a knee joint. It's a hinge and swivel, but even after heating it up, it baaarely wants to bend. So it's pretty useless.
>>9182556Doesn't he have multiple designers working on these things?
>>9183167Is this the worst wave yet?>3/5ths of the wave are characters no one cares about>they all have trigger fingers>no guns>Harley in a shitty dress>ugly ass faces with off kilter eyes>king shark is fucking useless and a statue
>>9183201What do you mean?
>>9183100What was the super friends Stephenwolf design based on? I heard it was a jack kirby original.
>>9183167I mean, at least its there? On the shelf he's probably just gonna be standing there anyway.
>>9176968Sick, I loved the flash. Super fun to pose
>>9178675more obsession with a WW2 faction 80 years after the conflict
>>9182556>>9183220Kirby designed both versions of Steppenwolf, and they're both completely unfilmable. Super Powers version at least had spikes and an axe, and the original cut version gave him dumb facial hair. For the movie, it makes more sense for him to be more creature-like, since he's directly related to Darkseid, and Darkseid is alien in design. It makes more sense for a movie than "humans in helmets".
>>9176968>It was me Barry>I made sure that DC banned having guns in all its future products>So eventually the line would be cancelled!
>>9183118I'm no cultist but I really enjoy every single one of his DC movies.>Snyder has had nothing but leewayCutting up BvS and JL to about 2 hours doesn't sound like leeway to me. WB literally excluded several important story points in the cut movies but let's not turn this into another DCEU debate>>9183309The poseability killed Flash imo. Him not being able to look upwards or get a good flex in the torso to give him a great speedforce running pose was disappointing as fuck.
>>9183167>It's a hinge and swivel, but even after heating it up, it baaarely wants to bend.While he's wearing the shorts, unmodded, right?
>>9183413dumb.New Gods are supposed to be based on human gods, so making them into stupid looking aliens is dumb.Only reason Darkseid looks the way he does is because he's evil, like literally evil. So he looks as bad as evil should look.Make them into aliens means you strip away so many stories and characters that come out of them (Big Barda, Glorious Godfrey, Orion, Mr Miracle, etc). Make any of these characters into humans, it brings up questions about why the other baddies were made into aliens. It's just a lot of change for the sake of change and that makes for shitty stories/movies.
>>9183708shut the fuck up subjectanon, no one, I mean NO ONE cares. Don't derail another fucking DC thread.
>>9177323literally a handgun
>>9182556Both are shit desu, you're either stuck with ugly cgishit design or shitty DCUC buck. >>9183413>hating on the original Steppenwolf designPleb>>9183708>Only reason Darkseid looks the way he does is because he's evil, like literally evil. So he looks as bad as evil should look.His mother and Uncle had yellow skin tone. New Gods is space opera, not pure sci-fi, so they should look closer to humans. P.S. What's with reddit spacing?!>>9183751Nah, that's too coherent for word salad subby.
>>9183708Always like the idea that Darkseid's face is just really corrupted since Apokolips just has uglier beings. Orion would look ugly if not for New Genesis tech and in Kingdom Come he starts resembling Darkseid(poor guy)
>>9184232>Apokolips just has uglier beingsYet Tigra was pretty and Big Barda and Lashina are beautiful, also assuming Suli was beautiful too. Maybe Kirby planned to elaborate on it more and would've if DC weren't bunch of greedy assholes or perhaps those were just exceptions to the rule.
>>9182626She doesn't lol Mafex is trash with ass.
>>9184232>>9184247Oh, I forgot Kanto and Glorious Godfrey.
When we gettin a bike for Lobo??
>>9184623Storm is apparently making one for theirs, which is pretty insane. I wonder if McFarlane will for theirs. We'll have to wait and see, I guess.
>>9182547 #Because DC and Marvel are massive faggots that are keeping the spirit of the comics code aliveNotice how the prototype has a larger chest, shorter shorts, and doesn’t think an exposed navel is too sexy
>>9183708>New Gods are supposed to be based on human gods, so making them into stupid looking aliens is dumb.except thanos was popular enough to warrant making aliens look alien and not boring people in cardboard costumes, thats what doctor who is for go watch that
>>9184683Why watch comic book movies if you don't want things to look like they're from the comics? You're the reason things are as bad as they are.
>>9184743why can't americans be like japan and faithfully adapt their stories instead of reinterpreting like they have a chip on their shoulder? its why blade runner failed because dumbass ridley scott wanted it to be about a dumb robot feeling emotions instead of dekker being human,
>>9176964Getting this guy soon
>>9184743https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eyonP1AgC0kHere's the trailer for chainsaw man, it looks incredibly faithful to the source because its not a remake of anything, its a original story with its own universe and setting. you dumb american fucks need everything to be connected through one system, one god and one nation its no fucking surprise comic books have no diversity in their story telling with endless remakes and reboots inviting the sjw stench to fester and dwell resulting in this thread with toxic alt right man babies bitch about the boobies of some dumb mother fucking six inch crap not being sexy enough for you chuds.
>>9184749good pick, Patriot Studio seems really solid with their head sculpts and tailoring. Their Joker fig was really underrated, but kinda overpriced, everyone went for the Filix fig and imo the only thing it has over that were the bloody heads.
>>9184682You're not wrong about the shorts and navel, but I don't think the prototype's boobs are actually bigger. They're more shiny and the lighting & pose are different so it's not obvious, but they look about the same to me. So you can take some joy from that at least.
>>9176964I wish Mafex would make some modern characters from comics that people actually like instead of thirty year old boomer shit
>>9184999who reads that woke trash?
>>9184999No kid is gonna be buying a mafex
>9184755That sure is a lot of buzzwords to not actually say anything remotely comprehensible
>>9185104or a comic
>>9182547>Amazing Yamaguchi never ever
My DKR batman's cape fell off, what do I do?
>>9182981I actually liked it too reminds me of the Decepticons in the Bay Transformers movies I’ll get it at some point but $40 is kinda steep for a figure with one accessory
>>9177428It was ok, but nothing special. Really simple articulation, not even half as good as the Marvel Universe line. Sculpts were mostly pretty nice though
>>9184195>His mother and Uncle had yellow skin toneAnd? they're evil too, but not as evil as Darkseid. So they get that tingeAnd yeah, i get that it's not sci fi, hence this whole appearance thing just based on their character.>>9184232Well, there are New Genesis people who went over to Apokolips who turned out to look ugly. But that's mostly just Darkseid letting his people fuck around with them. Like DeSaad being as ugly as he is, which is probably because he's been killed os much.>>9184683I don't think it was Thanos, because Thanos is faithful and so are the eternals (relatively, of course). Warner Brothers just changes shit up because they don't care about the comics. The writers and directors (and even executive producers) all want their genius to be recognized, hence changing as much as they can, so that they can claim "I made that and that's why i'm worth $50million."Warner Brothers and all its subsidiaries are incredibly fucked up, because doing this shit is how they're able to move up in the company. This is why the presidents of Cartoon Networks fire and cancel so much shit, because it makes more space for what THEY want to make. This is why previous shows like Justice League Unlimited and Teen Titans were canceled, because these shows were actually WB Animation's. Same reason for DC Nation. All got great ratings, but they came up with excuses to cancel them. See also the firing of all creator shows in the mid-00s (Flapjack, etc) when a new pres was brought in. See also the cancellations right now.This happens within all WB's subsidiaries.>>9184748WB Animation does faithful adaptations of varous comic storylines.The reason most animated series aren't faithful is for brevity, constantly changing writers, their storylines, and characters changing teams. Movies however, it's almost always because of executives/directors/writers are assholes, but that's just Hollywood life.Also, cartoons sometimes get comic creators involved.
>>9178079>The shitty hair down look>Shirt under the jacket>beard>shitty boot designI fuckin waited for nothing
>>9186020Get fucked nerd
>>9184749What does it come with and where can I get one?
>>9186065nah I'm glad i don't have to give mcfart toys any bucks and just ordered one i like instead
>>9185951>WB Animation does faithful adaptations of varous comic storylines.This hasn't been true in years, unfortunately.
>>9186120still mad over that Batgirl scene?Besides that Batgirl scene, i thought it was pretty faithful.What other movies got changed?
>>9186144Hush, Red Son, and Apocalypse War were all pretty drastically changed, too. Then there's the fact that all the films since Flashpoint Paradox were set in a shared universe with events from all over the DC timeline and various incarnations happening randomly in an otherwise vaguely New 52 inspired universe.
>>9185354Help me you fucks
>>9186144Too bad the animation was so shit it looked like a bad slideshow. That pissed me off far more than the Batgirl scene.
>>9186169The nu52 movies were a FUCKING MESS. I legitimately have no idea how they stumbled so much into that ending. I don’t even have much hope for the rebirth continuity this time, they’re already doing retarded shit like making Iris black. If they’re going to fuck it up again I want them to at least go out with a bang and do the Metal storyline. DC is a fucking mess man, it really can’t be that hard to set up 3 movies for groundwork and continue on with a plan, can it?
>>9177428Oh I have the Mr Feeze and Azrael somewhere they’re pretty cool
>>9185354>>9186173>cape fell offDon't you get how fucking vague that is? It's like if I answered "put it back on". It doesnt help does it. Capes dont just fall off. You hamhanded it. Post a picture of how it "fell off" and maybe you'd get recommendations you stupid fuck. Make sure you include your fat probably brown hand in the pic too.
what is the overall single best figure for each JL member? any brand ~6in (mcfartlane and others allowed)
>>9185354>>9186173God damn you all, I curse you with tangled pubes!
>>9189205In my opinion>mafex hush batman>mafex hush superman>mezco wonder womanProbably mezco or McFarlane for the rest. But you should probably just stick to one brand so they match scalewise. There's no guarantee mafex will continue with other JL characters despite being the best comic to figure representation. And personally I think the other mezcos look goofy as hell. Not to mention late tax on those and the imports. Just get mcfarlane shit. They're slowly getting better. And you don't have to wait months and months.
>>9189205Mafex is your only choice for 6-inch size but is expensive.
>>9189205I mix and match my collection so it's not specific to a particular artist/comic/movie. Here's all my 6in JL figures in no particular order:>Mafex Hush Superman>Mafex Hush Batman>Mafex TDKR Batman>Mafex TDKR Triumphant Batman>Mafex JL Batman>Mafex TDK Batman 3.0>Mafex JL Cyborg>Mafex JL Aquaman>SHF Batman 89>SHF JL Superman>SHF JL/WW84 Wonder Woman>SHF JL FlashStill looking for a good Green Lantern to fill out the team. I'm hoping Amazing Yamaguchi might come along and give us something with all the crazy effects.
>>9189272I agree about batman and wonder woman, but personally im hoping MAFEX makes a better Superman, the hush design is not my favorite
>>9184623I imagine they will, since bikes seem to be what they release when it comes to vehicles.
>>9181600Is that tom Kenny?
What batgirl figure has the best donk?
Suicide Squad Killer Frost McFarlane fucking when?
>>9194099mcfarlane would nail the style perfectly
>>9176964Never cared much for Hanky Supes but this is a cool looking toy
when mcfartlane finally gets around to making a Luthor, what design do you hope they go with?I think a modernized superfriends outfit would be nice, but im expecting it to just be one of his boring battle armor designs
>>9195701Fuck off troll.
>>9195701McFarlane can design decent, proportional female action figures unlike neca and their tmnt females with big ugly heads.
>>9194101Lol what makes you think that?
>>9195707Because he isn't neca look at skully >>9195706
>>9195714Bro, if you think this shit >>9195706 is a sexy female figures, your standards are pretty goddamn low.
>>9195730Hasbro only makes woke ugly crap
>>9195730Name five sexy action figures from anerican toy companies hard mode nothing from hasbro
>>9195736>Talking about woke while posting lgbtq rainbow tranny
>>9195760 >American companiesBasically none, and that includes McFartland.Only thing that comes to mind are from indie companies like pic related.
>>9195873because americans are PC libtards full of woke nonsense
>>9195707>He took the bait>>9195730>Twice
>>9195887why can't americans make sexy action figures and go all woke on them?
>>9195887Wow, excellent bait, you are the king of bamboozlers!
>>9184999I'd kill for any new Cass-related figure.
>>9195956/toy/ doesn't deserve better bait.
>>9178079Anyone know where I could buy 1/12 scale cigars for this bad boy?
>>9197591Just make them yourself. I made some out of old gunpla runners with brown, white, and silver paint.
>>9197591You could try ebay, or make them yourself using toothpicks or strands of cardboard.
>>9178090>no cigar>>9178103>no shotgunDC has a policy of no smoking and no guns in children's toys under a certain price point.
>>9181594so nobody likes the Suicide Squad line? I keep seeing people online say they suck but every review i've seen from non basement dwelling trolls is "they iight"I was planning to get them all for that King Shark BaF but I only truley want Polka Dot Man outside the King Shark BaF. So now I'm wondering if they'll actually flop and I can get them all for a discount later on instead of putting down $100 for the line now.I'd get King Shark alone but no Walmart in my area ever stocks McFarlanes and online it's sold out and god know when or if they'll restock.
>>9197923>I keep seeing people online say they suck but every review i've seen from non basement dwelling trolls is "they iight"Just because they're popular and successful in life doesn't mean that they're right.
>>9197931ok whatever incel shit aside, will they sell? i just want to know if i should blow my money now or not
>>9184999That art is so bad. Everything looks like a shitty Indie now in American comics?
>>9186431I don't think they were all bad. The Batman ones were ok and Death of Superman remake was decent.
>>9198044This show nailed the essence of Superman better than all recent iterations of animated or live action Superman. I would get them both for sure. I would not appreciate the unhelmeted variant for 'capt Luthor' (even though if there's a season 2 his suit will get a certain upgrade, surely), but I'd definitely go for the "my mom made it for me" variant of Supes.
>>9197895DC has a no guns period thing. $100 imports are affected to.
>>9198364>DC has a no guns period thingGuess someone at Mafex didn't catch the memo.
>>9198380>He thinks Henshaw's hand attached videogame console is a gun

McFarlane Toys Taking Over and Continuing DC Direct / Collectibleshttps://news.toyark.com/2021/07/27/mcfarlane-toys-taking-over-and-continuing-dc-direct-collectibles-438157Does this mean we're going home animated bros????
Alright so what other stuff was left unreleased?
>>9198432awesome, Based Papa Todd.
>>9198448I think there was this one as we'll.
>>9198452getting hella epic bazinga feels from this
I know it sounds lame, but the one thing I wanted was for them to re-do the animated superman with the updated joints they used on the Batman, like this...
>>9198495>shadingWhy do companies unironically do this? Does the cartoon art style alone not translate into the figure?
>>9198452You know if one of the Darwin cooke heads scaled onto Wondy she would actually make a cool stylised beefy Wonder Woman.
>>9198575who the fuck even buys this ugly crap?
>>9198586DC Direct is more about the sculpt than the articulation. When you look at a lot of their figures sculpts, you can tell exactly which artist interpretation they we're using, like Alex Ross, Dawein Cooke, Bruce Timm, etc...unlike with lines like Marvel Legends, where the only way you can tell what artist they we're going from is the costume.But this specific line, was from the above wrestler inspired line. Never made it to production...and was a bit more 'out there' then their usual figures.
>>9198448The DC Icons wave with Etrigan.>>9198432I do wonder what this means exactly. They can't possibly be bringing back all the lines right? It'll be interesting to see where this all goes.
>>9198614>I do wonder what this means exactly. They can't possibly be bringing back all the lines right? It'll be interesting to see where this all goes.Yeah, I'll be very interested to see just how this goes in implementation.>McFarlane Toys have entered into a global licensing agreement with WBCP to unleash a new line of McFarlane Toys designed statues, busts, and figures based on DC’s expansive roster of iconic characters. Fans and collectors can look forward to an array of McFarlane Toys created DC Direct collectibles >McFarlane will also manage current DC Direct inventory.>Under McFarlane Toys, DC Direct will continue to produce high-quality collectibles, including fan-favorite lines DC Designer Series, Batman Black & White, and Harley Quinn Red, White & Black.>McFarlane Toys will continue to sell and market all the current and upcoming pre-ordered DC offerings.So they'll continue those lines, but not clear yet on if they'll finish the unreleased products, probably might finish some (like the animated) and shelve others (like the wrestlers)? I can only assume that by "DC Direct will continue to produce high-quality collectibles, including fan-favorite lines" that probably has to include the Animated series figures.
Sort of confused by this news. I was a fan of DC Direct at one point, but the current McFarlane Multiverse stuff is better than what they were doing in every way. I've been slowly replacing my direct stuff with McF as it comes out because it's a lot less brittle and has a lot more articulation.
Thoughts on the playarts kai figures?
>>9198693Perhaps there will be some of those art specific figures with improved articulation?Or maybe it'll just be statues and the rest.
>>9198614>The DC Icons wave with Etrigan.Please God revive the DC Icons line. I need Deadshot
>>9198722hopefully they make them bigger and not tiny manlets
>>9198727I'd rather have them the size they were, they fit in better with my import figures this way
I don't think I have had a single direct figure that didn't have to get superglued at some point>Batman's gaunlet spike broke off>Deathstrokes sword broke in half>Deathstrokes arm broke off>Killer Croc legs broke off>both court of the owls swords snapped in half>Aquaman trident broke>Flash cowl lightning streak broke>catwoman leg fell off>Mr. Freeze gun broke>inb4 hamhandsI don't play with my figures. Most of them just stand on my shelves in the A pose. All of this damage has occurred from just moving them to clean them, breaking while in storage in a plastic tote, or breaking from making a 1 foot tumble off a shelf.
>>9198739Wow, that is the worst opinion imaginable
Got my Bizarro in from the Gamestop sale. Really great figure, easily one of the best at this price point, and even comes with two fists.
>>9199684 Ordered him when he was $8 as well, excited to get him in hand.
>>9182532they didnt allow pics for his prototype
>no amazing yamaguchi Flash and RF repaint
>>9178913Get the Storm Collectables one. He is an absolute unit.
>>9195412I just want him in a dark green three-piece suit.
>MAFEX Batman 1.0 is finally giving up the ghost>paint is almost rubbed bare and the arms spend more time on the shelf than in their socketsIt's time to replace him but looking around on Ami Ami and eBay, it looks like the only readily available Nolan Batman is a cheap KO of the 3.0 MAFEX, but the reviews don't sound great and I've had extremely mixed results from those KOs in the past.Any ideas? Just lurk in the BST like a gargoyle?
>>92030603.0 just got restocked in a lot of places, im sure you can find someone selling it
I bought the McFarlane Batman Beyond figure on a whim since I don't collect 7 inch stuff. That was about a week ago and now I have like six of these motherfuckers, I'm sick. I have a problem.I bought the fucking exclusive version of Shriek, like a chump, when it's obviously going to come out again in a 2-pack.I've got Superman Unchained hanging out with McGinnis, I think he must be the Superman of the future. Clearly it's not Clark in the suit, it must be someone new like Terry was. Maybe he stole it from LexCorp after they tried to make their "own" superman based on Luthor's old armor, for that make sense?Bizarro is damn good, he has a ton of character and pretty much looks great with anyone.I got Injustice Grodd because he was 10 bucks on walmart's website and... He's cool but I have fuck-all idea what to do with him.And Batman Beyond is pretty good but it sucks he doesn't have the right batarang or any fists.The Blight toy they're making better be in a proper suit and tie, I don't wanna buy some armored up shit based on a comic I've never read.
Todd says fuck you for buying his clearance shit.
>>9204173For 20 dollars thats a good deal
Are Marauder incs six inch scale weapons any good? I want to give my Bloodsport and John Cena actual guns.
>>9198700they're fucking weird, check out their Arkham Knightthey use an ugly scale too
>>9204239what store, i need more stores that sell 1/12 accessories
>>9204173>still has the iffy arms and legsdamn, i woulda put down a fat 25 for that fig
>>9204273https://www.marauderinc.com/They mainly make 1:18 stuff, so you'll have to look around for the 1:12 section.
>>9204239They're decent but McFarlane figures are 1/10 so they'll be a bit small.
Kinda wish MAFEX Cyborg Supes's head wasn't quite so undetailed.
>>9178079thats a karen
I need a Mad Stan with authentic Henry Rollins likeness and I need it right fucking now.
Why does he have plump and luscious breeding hips? Do we have any pictures of the reverse of the reverse flash? I wanna see if he got a fat ass to go along with.
anyone have this guy? fucking love his look but I dont know if the line is actually any good
>>9205627i have the owldude. He pretty good, aside from no head articulation.Articulation is about as good as Mattel's stuff at the time. Pretty sub-par, but still fun to play with. Articulation feels like butter though.Look wise? Unparalleled. Well worth their price if you like the look.
>>9202765It's tragic how much of a departure modern harley is from classic harley. Classic Harley is perfection.
>>9198722I just wanted booster and beetle man fuck
>>9202765Need mafex to do a figure of this
>>9204239Your figures will catch fire if you put any sort of gun into their hands. It's a new built in way for DC to control the gun ban.
>>9203083Superman unchained was from a mini series drawn by Jim Lee, he wears the armor for like 1 page
>>9176964this cyborg superman is such a let down.
>>9207494yeah, but if he's gonna take up this much space and cost that much money, he's gonna be his own damn character on my shelf. And since I don't have anyone to hang out with McGinnis yet, he earns the spot.Besides, armored superman is always dumb.
>>9207589Check out this casual.
>>9207513you're on crack
>>9207589>armored superman is always dumb>not superman fighting in fabric pajamas his mom made him
>>9207885and his baby blanky
McFarlane Dark Knight Returns Batman hitting Walmart.Time to see how awful or surprisingly decent the articulation is
>>9208012Is there a dkr superman incoming?
