    Jacket looks a little rough. Hope that can be tidied up. Can't wait to compare to Mezco Gambit.

    There's plenty of time to get Gwen out this month, too.

    That’s going to be a tight comparison between Mezco’s and MAFEX’s Remy @SmokePants.

    I already like the colours on the MAFEX one, however I have to see the reviews first (I’m considering this one honestly). Even though the Mezco Remy looks good, it doesn’t even have waist articulation and the secondary noggin did not look too good at all to most people.

    I think it'll wind a roughly 50/50 split with the Mezco Gambit looking better in static A-stance posed displays and the Mafex looking better in more dynamic positions.

    Wonder if a 3P will do a custom Joker head based on TAS. I know it won't match the body but the TAS face is so much better. Lastly, hopefully Mafex does Batman Beyond.

    I hope they do as well.


    Symbiotic Spidey looks cool. I like the five o’clock shadow on the alternate head lol

    Man - I really like this symbiote spidey as well as the new ML one they just showed off - don’t *really* need both, but I’ll probably end up with both.

    glad to see gambit finally releasing. In this case, I definitely don’t need Mezco, ML, and Mafex - will have to decide which one I like best once we get a good look at Mafex here.

    why TNBA?! BTAS and I’d buy every one they make. Passing on all these TNBA designs.

    Same here. They look good but it wasn't the show that brought me back to DC.

    The Batman is acceptably close to TAS imo, but that Joker is a bridge too far.

    Do what I'm doing for both Ben Reilly and Symbiote Spider-Man - keep the ML vintage ones MOC, open the MAFEX. The MAFEX designs will undoubtedly be more comic accurate.

    Both of them are up for PO in JP and in the US. It's a matter of finding the best place to order it from.

    As a kid, I was grateful for TNA for bringing back the show, but I'm much more of a BTAS fan visually since the thicker, more retro-40s looking designs appeal a lot more to my preferences. Scarecrow may be my exception to that.

    I'm just not a fan of these animation-based Batman figures. Even if they were the more familiar BTAS designs, I wouldn't bite. The smoothness makes the articulation cuts seem jarring to me. Plus, I'm done buying DC figures that should have a gun, but don't come with a gun.

    I'm not too mad, though, because I'm usually 2 for 2 with these monthly Mafex reveals. It's nice to have reveals I can skip. Symbiote Spider-man is a buy. 1 for 2.

    Got a preorder processing soon from BBTS for Hush. Maybe now I'll go head and ship my POL since nothing else seems to be arriving

    Symbiote Spidey ordered. Now they just need to give me a Scarlet Spider and I'll basically be satisfied with my collection of Peter Parkers.

    That would potentially be a dark horse fifth figure depending on price. Those extra legs could be too expensive. After that it would need to be like Captain Universe or something. Definitely have no need for any post-OMD costumes though.

    Ok and I would pay whatever amount of money was required to make a Bag Man suit (from any company really) as long as it keeps the bare feet and Kick Me sign.
