    I saw hi min the store last week. He is one massive figure. But I'd like to see him next to Juggernaut for a comparison. I also think it's funny how small his base is. At a certain point, you just have to go, "Why the hell does he need a base?"

    Oh, and Power Girl still owns the IC line.

    He fits on the base just barely. But 1 thing I have noticed is the 2 IC I got have holes in the foot and in the base stand but do not come with a peg?

    Mongul Jr. is indeed big, but he's also quite stiff, non-poseable, and waaaay too much. Plus, his red "nails" confused me since I thought he was wearing gloves....

    Go find yourself a SOTA Tauran Shaman (basically, a Minotaur). He's the biggest (well, heaviest at the very least), most badass fig. I own/have seen and the price can't be beat. 2.5 lbs of plastic for only $12 (originally, I paid $15)!

    The base pegs should be in a little baggy taped to the tray. Look around the tray (hopefully you didn't throw it out!). I was thinking the same thing.

    I had no intention of buying him, but my lcs didn't charge more for him and I just couldn't resist that giant hunk of plastic. I just wish they'd do a Doomsday at that size.

    I haven't removed my Mongul from his package yet and Jugs is in storage but Monul is definately bigger than Juggernaut.

    Triformis, are you sure that is Mongul Jr.? I remember reading from some forums (I thinl fwoosh and DC Direct) that is the original Mongul.

    The back of the package says that Mongul is on a revenge quest of a sort for the death of his Father. So I think they are inplying that he is the Jr. of the family.

    I havre the DC Direct Doomsday and he looks awesome. But I would be extreamly stoked if they were to make a Doomsday the size of Mongul.

    Ok, this is the best I can do as I haven't opened up my Mongul Jr. yet...er, my room's a mess and I have er, other stuff to open...er, such as Gundams...

    [​IMG]

    I made Jugs and Hulk stand on a couple of CDs to make sure that both figures are roughly "level" with Mongul...and as you can see, Mongul Jr. is the biggest action figure done in the usual 6 inch scale.

    If you look at the Marvel Select's Ultimate Hulk, one will realise that Mongul's hands and arms are sculpted in the same pose!
