    Didn't care for this before (not that I had a chance at it for retail anyway) but this extra pack making him a vampire hunter type makes me wish I had it.

    Was hoping it was Conan's turn but I may pick up that Batman.

    I feel like Sovereign is pretty definitive so not sure I need it. MAFEX gave me a Neil Adam's recently too. Do I really need Supreme?

    Mezco still needs to catch up on thier backlogged pre-orders (Iron Fist, KGBeast, Reeves Superman, Keaton Bats, Fratteza Conan, Dr. Zaius and others) as its getting to the point that many are getting impatience.

    It's almost the end of this month and there is a possibility that Mezco will not have a pre-order for Morbius as shown at NY Toy Fair before the lockdown or will it be pushed till Spring of 2021?

    My supplier says I'll have mine by week's end.

    I felt like the PX Sovereign was pretty definite, too...then I watched D Amazing's review of Supreme and had to get one. I thought I'd be good with that, but something about the PX Supreme Knight just resonated with me.

    The Mafex DKR Batman is pretty awesome, too. Though personally, I think the Mafex Hush is the current definitive comic-based Batman.

    Yeah, the Hush is the one I'm talking about. I call it Neil Adam's because that's his design to me. Just works as a general Adam's Batman even though Lee drew Hush.

    Whoops, misread your post, apologies. For some reason I thought you were talking about the DKR Batman.

    I dont usually go for a ton of mezco but I found the ascending knight a while back, then managed to get the Supreme one on discount, so I recently got the sovereign one from a member here to finish the trilogy. Of the three the weakest is the ascending one I think but there is an appeal to having the 3 to kind of show the progression. I really wanted the px Supreme because the blue and gray look is more of my favorite look but since the others were the first one I got was the regular release I stuck to it. Think I am pretty set for mezco batmen except the Keaton one. I am gonna have to pay aftermarket for it but I have a feeling that will be the best 1/12 Keaton we have gotten. The figuarts just missed the mark (from reviews I watched as I canceled my order after seeing them) for me and the neca is dated now.

    I forgot about the Keaton Batman. You're right, I bet it will be the best version available.

    I don’t know anything about Dr. Fate (reading recommendations, anyone?), but I think I may pull the trigger on this as I dig the design.

    I do wish the blue undershot weren’t so plain though, it really needs some design on it

    I meant that I haven’t actually read any of his comics, are there any runs that are considered particularly good?

    My favorite is the Immortal Doctor Fate. Didn't care about him until I read that. I haven't read it in a long time though.https://www.amazon.com/DOCTOR-FATE-...tal-text&sprefix=immortal+doct&sr=1-1-catcorr

    I also remember really liking this: https://www.amazon.com/Doctor-Fate-1-J-M-DeMatteis-ebook/dp/B00YDQC4N8

    Anything Lord's of Order is always a lot of fun too.

    Also I think his N52 stories were among the more decent offerings.

    appreciate it! That’s where I’ll start then. I’ve been looking for something new to get into, this seems like a decent choice.
