    That is very strange that the figures aren’t even aesthetically compatible with the one they are packed with.
    Pretty G1 Prime and BB WFC/FOC Wheeljack/OTT IDW Megatron…

    (I know Prime is supposed to be IDW too, but he;s much simpler and more G1 then Megs)

    Are these the page punchers Hasbro was alluding to with their cryptic teaser?

    Nah it’s Todd man he lets this shit happen all the time it’s common with his lines.

    Used to be a joke that his team goes for whatever design shows up 1st in Google images and it stopped sounding like a joke when a lot of the toys literally resemble the 1st image results that show up in Google images.

    He also doesn't make many female characters. Like, it's Wonder Woman and maybe a Catwoman every now and then but he's been doing DC for years without a comics Harley.

    Lotta Jokers though. LOOOOOTTA Jokers.

    She’d be out of scale anyway, as tall as Batman and Joket, which is another major issue with this line

    I got the Wonder Woman and it was like pulling teeth. Hard to find, likely low production numbers, sold out everywhere, scalper bait. I lucked out seeing her at GameStop and I picked her up.

    But at least he's doing Punchline even if she has to be in a 2 pack with Joker...
