    holy mother of god. the dc line has completely blown the marvel legends figures out of the water by successfully sculpting a female figure.

    That would look good next to my Son of Batman Joker, as long as the scale is similar.

    That could be a problem, DCD isn't typically on scale with other stuff.

    B&S Joker might be a bit larger, but that might not be terrible considering it's Harley, and she should be smaller.

    By the way, I love B&S Joker. I think he looks fantastic. A lot of people hate DCD for their larger figures that typically have less articulation than some would like. I personally don't like a lot of articulation.

    Does anyone have the New Frontier Green Arrow figure? I was thinking of buying it for myself as a Chrismas/End of Semester present but I have only really seen pictures of it online (my LCS is woefully bad when it comes to Action Figures) in the package.

    So I was just wondering if anyone had it and if they thought it was a decent figure.

    Every figure from the New Frontier series has been great.

    Green Arrow is no exception.

    I love the GA figure

    however, his bow is fragile and somewhat tricky to pose correctly.

    I had to glue mine back together after it snapped

    He wins for the simple fact that he can do a full draw on the bow. 'Justice' Ollie is so close...but just can't make it.

    You're in luck, cause it will probably be like $13. Unless it gets gobbled up at the stores quickly and you have to get it on eBay for $25.

    Whee! I picked up the New Frontier figures I was missing at my comic shop's Boxing Day sale. :)

    Man, I really want a Wave 3. I'd like to see King Faraday, Captain Cold, Adam Strange and Aquaman.

    I fail to see your point.

    If you have him in hand you'll understand. Until then you will be forced to wander this earth, blind to the splendor that it brings.

    So, oddly enough, two people gave me the Justice Armored Batman figure for Christmas this year. Before I throw the extra one on eBay, I thought I'd check here to see if anyone might be interested in either buying it or perhaps trading it for another figure. It is really quite awesome.

    Well I went searching for the DCUC series 1 and lo and behold, nothing! Everyone has the pegs set up, but no damn merchandise.

    Anyways...Part Two of Mike Crawfords review. I want that fucking Metamorpho.

    Okay so I lurked on this thread for days until I finally read all 75-76 pages...I think I'm ready to post some pics of my collection on here. These are all of my figures and my cool posters too. I've got about 20 pictures all together.

    While I'm not sure if that was a poor attempt at calling me a weeaboo or not but I feel that I do have a pretty equal blend of both comic book and anime-based figures. I just separate my figures on type so one shelf for Star Wars, one shelf for anime, one for DC, one for Marvel. So I fail to see why you called me Ash Ketchum but that might not have even been directed at me so disregard if it wasn't. I feel even more angry though now that I know how much Hush Nightwing is worth. I got it when it first came out but my roommate's little sister threw it on a hardwood floor and the left leg broke off at the knee joint and one of his escrima batons broke in two.

    Yeah it was the shining part of my Nightwing collection for a long time: I've got first appearance Robin, first appearance Nightwing, Knightfall Nightwing, Hush Nightwing, Superman/Batman Nightwing, B:TAS Nightwing, and the Batman/Nightwing two-pack where he had the super emo hair. My roommate's two little sisters are retarded, destructive forces of nature. One of them is 9 and still sucks her thumb and is on her third try at first grade and EVERYONE hates her. The other reacts VIOLENTLY to everything since she threw my figure because I told her to put him back on the shelf when she was done. Poor Nightwing. So what did everyone think of my collection?

    It's a large collection. I really do find most of those Japanese female figures to be completely tasteless and shameless, but you have a lot of figures. I only have three figures out... Lobster Johnson, Hellboy and Mulder. A friend found Mulder somewhere and gave him to me for some reason. My nephew likes to carry him around for some reason when he visits.

    I think they could be displayed better. Just placing them on your dresser and window sill, combined with the posters, sort of makes your room look really tacky for how little we see of it, like a 15 year old lives there.

    Yeah the problem I have with some of my figures is that the pegs in their feet or on the base have snapped off so it's hard for some of them to stand so I have to lean them against one another. In some cases it makes for some neat pairings like with Harley & Ivy and Power Girl & Huntress but in some cases it just causes me to have to put figures too close together.

    Go to CVS or whatever and get yourself some of that blu-tack stuff. Works wonders on fussy standers.

    Using acrylic (or plastic) risers like this

    can also help clean up your displays, by actually making a display. I've seen them at stores like Wal-Mart and Target with the picture frames.

    So the comic shop I go to offered me a deal on the Infinite Crisis figures I wanted: Metropolis-battle Batman, Wonder Girl, Firestorm, Wonder Woman, and an OMAC for $40. I think that's a sweet deal. Shall I take it?
