    Not a buyer of Mezco products, we stick with ML, Diamond Select, Mafex, SH etc.

    Saying that, I absolutely love the FF team they put out. Actually more like I love Reed & Thing. I only just like Johnny and Sue is well......Sue.
    Thus, $400+ for two figures I love seems a bit of a stretch, no pun intended.

    The reason I'd even consider that FF team is because I really loveee that Doom. It looks, to me, like a definitive Doom.

    Really considering picking him up but there are a few little issues that bug me about the overall appearance. I've read comments about the enlarged face plate and/or that it doesn't sit flush with the face. But, his body proportions also look off. Either his waist is not narrow enough or his shoulders too narrow. Because of his narrow shoulders, it naturally would make his head look bigger.
    For anyone who already has him in hand, how are the proportions in person?

    Second question for those that have him, can you pose the cape to appear flaccid? The blowing in the wind look is cool, but if he's just standing in a room the cape should be lifeless.

    My last issue is the price. Not so much the retail price, but the fact I'd have to go buy a chair (which will cost some bucks). In addition, we'd have to go get a FF team (which I referenced earlier that Mezco's prices are oomph). We can go the ML route, but regardless that would require an additional outlay of funds. Unless of course, I make him an Iron Man enemy. We have several of those.

    I can't not recommend the FF team enough. Yes they are pricey, but they also all look great together and are a seamless team. I did get a flame on Marvel Legends Johnny and invisible Sue to have for those options, but otherwise I think I'm done buying Fantastic Four figures for the rest of my life.

    I do really love the appearance of the entire team. The Thing is the standout to me, followed closely by Reed. Reed's got to have the most extensive yet viable accessories I've seen. None of his accessories seem wasted.

    No idea why, but I think Johnny's accessories look highly suseptible to breakage.

    In any case, do you think the Team can fit in with ML & Mafex figures? The Doom, although I don't own him, looks like he can easily mix in well.

    I don't see why they couldn't fit in well, I have a lot of Mafex as well. My big display I'm aiming to put together is a Haslab Sentinel with X-Men, mostly Mafex right now with a couple Legends, and then Haslab Galactus with the Silver Surfer and Fantastic Four. I'd like to get some Skrulls to throw in that display too.

    That sounds like that's going to be some sort of setup.

    Woo hoo! Got the email that my Solomon Kane finally charged! I figured I’d miss out and started looking at “late tax versions”. Saved myself at least $50.

    It’s definitely going to be a two pack.

    I'm a huge FF and especially Doom fan. I had both preorders but the shop that had my FF order went out of business so I let that go and kinda ok with it. Not missing Doom though. Whatever the case, you trying to justify collecting FF/Doom figures, from me I'm just gonna say do it one way or another (Mezco, ML or whatever). As for "have to go buy a chair", I get it but the idea of having to buy a chair for a premium "Action" Figure is kinda ironic to me. Just pose that badass figure as it was meant to be instead of sitting around on a chair, lol! Money saved!

    So the messed and scarred up Krig 13 becomes Rook, just like burnt crispy Ani turned to Vader after Palpy rebuilds him.

    Going to be around when this drops, but not getting it.

    Wow, not a two pack!

    Note that Red Eye Gomez says “Limited Supply Available,” not seen that on recent exclusives.

    I put in a pre-order for Rook, he goes with the other Krig on my shelf. And the transparent hand is cool.
