Not to take over the thread with my plight, but after taking a long look at the Jim Lee HUSH Batman, it's looking like the front runner. On second evaluation it's not nearly as bulky as I first thought.

If I had a choice, I'd like a Batman figure similar to Neal Adam's and Jim
Aparo's versions. Any suggestions?



There is a Neal Adams Batman in the pipeline, from the Batman
Black and White collection. Also, while I am bored to tears with ^^*****
and DC slapping Alex Ross's name on anything and everything, whether it
looks like he drew it or not, I did pick up this rather nice Batman from the
same collection.

That is a nice Batman. The ONLY thing that I don't like about it is that you can see Batman's eyes.

I went ahead and got the HUSH Batman since it had a nice mix of modern and classic touches to it. The fact that it wasn't as bulky as I first thought sealed the deal.

I also went ahead and got the Hulk vs Leader set--classic Leader, that is. Thanks for the heads up on that one guys.

Two dots of white paint took care of that on the one I bought!

Perfect as far as I'm concerned. Fantastic figure.



I can't get past the redesigned belt/girdle. With the chest emblem as it is
currently rendered, Diana must stab herself rather badly in the stomach
every time she bends forward.

JB,

The Beast I saw at my LCS (packaged with an Apocalypse) had fuzz on him
similar to what was used on the Moss Man (I think that's what it was called)
from the old Masters of the Universe line. Had Beast been by himself or with
another figure I would have bought it.

Hm. No fuzz on the Beast I bought, and packaged with Iceman.

Well, if you want the "variant" with a very happy Apocalypse let me know.

Speaking of Batman statues. This doesn't come out until March of next year, but I preordered this Frank Miller B&W Batman with my LCS.

I've seen that shot. I'm hoping it's the angle that's making his eyes look so
oddly low on his face.

When I first saw that photo I thought something was off. Then I saw a full figured prototype at the Chicago Con and I decided to order it. I didn't think of taking a picture so I can't, with certainty, say the eyes were different. Just that I thought it looked better in person.

Here is something I haven't done in YEARS...
Chop up an action figure and put joints to it... Making it superPOSEABLE...


Here is some stuff I dug out from under the closet toy box...


Here is a couple of UN-painted kits that were right beside the Yamato... the RHINO is just freaking awesome!!! I wish they produced a bigger version... it is a real beautiful model...


Here is the Adam Warren Dirty Pair and I have the original as well... Took them out of their box ONCE to inspect them before I bought them...


If anyone's interested I'll take them out and shoot a pose...

raise your hands who doesn't have the super-duper-oversized-pose-able-SPIDER-MAN action figure...


Can't believe I didn't include this in the first set of pics...
(it only has been sitting beside my computer since it first came out...)

I bought that Spider-Man for my nephew. I wished I'd picked one up for myself!

I love seeing all the bowen busts you have,J.B. , but I don't see the Iron Fist bust. Is it because you passed on it, or can you not find it?
