    To be fair to Mezco, I was a waitlist preorder, that was charged recently. I did receive an email saying their warehouse received them for whatever that’s worth.
    I am not still waiting since he first started shipping in the fall, if that matters.

    So those customers that are on the waitlist status should be getting their most wanted items providing that the previous customers that ordered it before took a hit on the NRD.

    Any of you know what figure that is of the ultraman tiga in the comparison shots?

    I didn’t know there was a soft good version of that suit

    Alphamax Ultraman Tiga. Not sure if it is any good, though.

    Awesome, thanks. I’ll do some research on it. If it’s good I may need it

    Yeah AlphaMax. They also have Dyna and Gaia I think but not sure if they released yet. It seems it’s mixed on them, some people thought they were awesome but some not so much. They look almost on par with the Mezco UM but they have weird licensing. Not available in Japan but all over the Asian region, I think BBTS had them but charged quite a premium for them.


    FedEx is still on winter weather alert in my area so White Ranger is still at the hub.


    Found a few more Spidey pics from HK I believe. Not helping it’s case much but some better comparisons. The suit seems a bit baggy.

    The Spider-Man really does look a bit like an updated Mego, which makes some sense to me. I remember reading that Mez started out customizing Megos forever ago, so this was probably a little bit of an homage I'd guess.

    They must have realised that, as they even did collected books of just those strips. I still have some of them.

    Those last pics posted by @Slender102 are making me like the figure more and I'll end up keeping my order. There are some things I would have liked to see like the web accessory for the camera and also would be cool to see them go all out with the cloth goods and include an actual cloth mask that fits over the Parker heads. They also should've compared with the more classic look ML Spideys that were released recently or the SHF Toei version. Either way, this will end up on my main Spidey shelf as the early Spidey when he first started off as a kid.

    Oh me too. One of my favorite Christmas gifts from my exwife is a collection of maybe 100 issues of Toyfare magazine from the ‘02-05 era. She thought I would hate it and think it was a bad gift but man was she wrong and I was so happy with it. I still have them too lol.

    One of my favorite issues of the back panel shots or whatever they were, was a short story of Goku and Krillin freaking out afterkilling someone they shouldn't have and decide to dispose of the body by eating it lmao. My god, I laughed so hard every time I read it.

    I have also collected probably half(I need to dig them out), of the TTT collection books because I was such a fan.

    My Dr. Doom arrived broken... the magnet wouldn't attach to the gold clasp on the cloak. I spent several minutes trying and I sure as hell am not going to take glue to my $150 figure.

    I'm returning this ASAP, I have a store credit at The Chosen Prime so I'll get my replacement through them.

    EDIT: Well, that was unpleasant. So the ebay dealer who sold me Doom did send the return slip... but with a very passive aggressive implication that I am being less than honest.

    My gosh that is disappointing.
    Aside from receiving a broken figure, being so close to having him in-hand yet so far.
    You'll get the figure so all is not negative.
