    I don't like the lower part of the helmet covering her jaw, you can see this in your comparison, it changes her face a lot and gives her more of a haggard look while also widening the profile a lot.

    I like the CC buck a lot, it's a little more free-moving because the upper torso has been redesigned to change the proportions of the figure, and the legs aren't trying to emulate the original hunched pose of those toys. Not a huge change though, the Origins buck for its few flaws is still quite fun to pose around.

    I have a FedEx package coming from the same place. But it’s 5.9 pounds. No way that’s just one figure, right?

    They actually decided to make Sy-klone out of lead

    I've mostly tapped out of origins outside of good deals, like moss man for £20. (the price of a regular figure where I live)

    This is almost the only toyline where I'm satisfied with my collection as-is. They just look so wonderful on the shelf, and great in the hand. I don't feel the drive to buy and buy- I have everyone I need.

    This fella right here is probably my favourite toy ever. May you live forever, Merman :thumb

    Thanks. Even though I'm done collecting the actual Origins toys, except for the mini-comics, I still like to get the books to read.

    My Sy-Clone order summary still says unfulfilled and I didn't get an email notification that it shipped but according to FedEx, a package was delivered today from PADC in Jonestown, PA. That's Mattel and I don't know what else it could be.

    Correct - my order doesn't show as fulfilled on Mattel Creations' site, but the Sy-Klone I have in-hand suggests otherwise. :)

    It's 3.1 lbs. according to the Fedex notification. FWIW I ordered two Sy-Clones.
