    Because apparently one facial expression isn't enough for the Japanese. Every figure has like two heads, which are exchangable with the other DoA figures. Every point of articulation except for the knees and ankles are able to be popped off and exchanged. Some of them, like Kasumi, have extra thighs and 6 different hands to make for some interestingly agile and risque poses. They aren't nearly as durable as American toys, but they really really pretty to look at.

    Where can I find info about these DOA figures?

    They are Kaiyodo-Takara action figures. I have all 6. You can buy them individually, but they come cheaper in a set.

    Oh, I want that Wonder Woman figure. I tried checking Wal-Mart for her but all they had was the silly Justice Lords version with the mullet. Boo.

    She came in a JLU 3 pack from Target, with Batman and Bizarro. It would be a complete and total lie if I told you that I didn't just buy it for Bizarro though .

    Your dedication is admirable, but there's still a little thing called pride in your work, young man!

    I expect to see an artsy picture of Batman fighting aqua-creatures by noon tomorrow!

    If you're not traumatized, feel free to have him fighting fire creatures.

    What happened with that new DC line that was to be like an 'answer' to Marvel Legends? Some pretty sweet figures in that set, including Azrael in his own classic costume? Have they come out or is there a date?

    5557091.jpg

    Seras Victoria from the manga Hellsing. Not actually an action figure, but y'know. You cant tell from the crumy camera photo but the paintjob is superb. I dont have my figures with me at uni aside from this one because its new, but I have the Marvel Legends Deadpool, Star Wars Unleashed Bossk, Darth Tyrannus and Yoda vs Sidious, a Vash the Stampede recoloured figure and Soul Calibur 2 Nightmare.

    Oh man...I don't have a camera, but I've got the best setup, I tell ya:

    Jurassic Park model T-Rex from when I was...maybe seven

    Riding said T-Rex is a skeleton with a guitar (I don't know)

    Under the T-Rex is Revolver Ocelot defying gravity
    And a chewed up Jawa

    (I have the same gambit, but he is in a drawer somewhere because he kept falling up off his ragin' stand)

    I want a solid snake figure...I never found one

    also, strange request: Do they make The Question or John Constantine figures? (bwhahaha, yes, I know, the two least likely characters for action figures you could imagine, but think about it...surly british guy standin' there, smokin', and no-face mcparanoid...just bein' three kinds of awesome without doing anything)

    I was THIS: [-] close to picking up an Elseworlds Red Son Superman at Hot Topic last night... the $15 price tag made me balk, though. To cheer me up, the fiancee bought me a animated TT Speedy. He's decent, and will go well with my JLU Green Arrow at work (even though they're the same height).

    If I think of it, I'll get some pics of the curio cabinet full of action figures. My wife got tired of the figures being all over the house, so she bought me a cabinet to keep them all in. I'll eventually have to find my original Star Wars figures and put them in there. I think I only have like four of them left after moving three times.

    It's funny how action figures have changed since the old lines. I remember my old brown costume wolverine figure with removable mask. Lost the mask the first damn day.

    These pictures make me feel old. I have/had so many X-Men figures, it's not even funny. I have the Woverine in the brown and yellow costume with the removeable mask still in the blister. I even have the first Beast and Rogue figures, still in their blisters. I got them when they first came out, when I was ten.

    I wonder how much stuff like that is worth now, if anything. They were hard as hell to find back in the day.

    Dunno about the Question, but DC Direct made a John Constantine figure.

    I was excited to get him, but he's actually kind of disappointing. No accessories, hardly posable, and instead of smirking it more looks like he's trying to crap his pants.

    He's an older one, so I believe your only chance of getting one is through ebay, unless you've got a local comic shop that still has older figures.

    I went to Toys R Us yesterday to pick some up. I ended up getting the Green Lantern 3 pack and the Green Arrow, Flash, and Dr. Fate 3 pack. There was only one Justice Lords pack, but Superman had a really bad paint smudge of some sorts on his face and emblem...so I passed.

    I was lucky enough to get it myself. It was tucked away on the back of the shelf underneath a bunch of the new "DC Superheroes" JLU line. I saw part of the blue box and new it was an older one. As for Mirror Master..are you looking for a single? I believe he's only in the Lex Luthor 3pack, but I could be wrong.

    Yup, the 3-pack. The GLC set is everywhere, but I have yet to see the Mirror Master, Luthor, Copperhead set.
