    There is someone out there nostalgic for Guy Gardner Warrior but not me (even though I got those comics).

    At first I thought you guys were saying this was like, classic Guy Garner in a Hal-like GL costume, but this is jacketed GL Guy Gardner, right? That's all I want.

    What gets me going even more is that every single Superman figure has a different skin tone so you can't even cobble one together yourself.

    Even with McGuiness being on art, there's no reason to keep reusing that DKR Superman body for this. That thing is awful.

    Still trying to source a Superman red Platinum for a friend of mine if anyone spots one in stores and is willing to grab one to sell for a reasonable price. That whole wave hasn't appeared in my area yet.

    I'm not a fan, but the Warrior version of Guy could be a chase and an easy repaint. The Red Lantern jacket is too different to use this mold.

    Look at those proportions Todd probably has that at the top of the list of what to make next.

    I'll split the difference with you and say, halfway through that episode is where Simpson's jumped the shark. Maybe even 2/3's. The "Jebus" jokes are brilliant, but that episode never ends its actual story. I still remember being like, wtf just happened? Did the writers just give up? And the answer was yes, yes they did.

    (Of course I realize JTS moments vary from person to person and property to property. There's debate all over about The Simpson's JTS moment, this just happened to be mine.)

    The Ramen Toy upgrade kit for the McFarlane '89 Batmobile just arrived today out of the blue. I don't recall getting a shipping notice. Parts seem decent. A little flash on one side of the canopy hinge, but nothing a quick swipe of the Exacto can't remedy. The canopy is molded in clear plastic then the black is painted.

    They did introduce a comics version but Reeve himself ships before this.

    I think Nuclear Man is my main pull. Maybe Wonder Woman if it's Golden Age.

    I haven’t put the gas caps on yet, but the machine guns look really cool, and the difference between the canopies is night and day!

    Comic book accurate Guy or nothing!

    Give me Bowl cut Guy drawn by Joe Staton. I also want a Kilowog also based on Joe Staton artwork.

    I'd LOVE a yellow ring Guy based off of his series by Joe Staton.

    Dang. Can’t believe how much the Super Powers Gold Label Skull Ship is going for on the secondary market. I wasn’t really planning on selling mine but…$250+? Makes me consider…would help me justify getting Manta. Haha.

    I really kept thinking Manta would finally just appear at Walmart if I was patient. But all my Walmarts went from the Deathstroke wave to the new Blue Beetle wave. And so….i think I missed the boat. Darn it all.

    Those are absolutely fantastic. If only McFarlane Toys would listen to Toy Otter. Man those would be some dope figures!
