    I don't think these will affect the value of the 1/12 figure too much so if you want to get rid of it, shouldn't be too bad. I really can't see them going very deep with this though.

    It looks like the Injustice series is done with as no news since the Aries release.

    I don't blame them. If I was running an adult-oriented toy company, I would stay far away from the DC license and their paternalistic restrictions. That Lobo with a shotgun and cigars would probably never get approved under the new regime.

    I'm so disappointed that I just got into collecting DC figures and happened to see the Injustice Bane that Storm Collectibles did, would have been perfect for the aesthetic I'm going for

    $235.

    I think it's a little pricey for what you're getting overall. I'd definitely would've liked the skull/fire and other accessories.

    I like it, though I tend to agree. I might be convinced for Sub-Zero though...

    I wonder if plastic costs are affecting these guys now. It is bound to happen. I wish they would be quicker with the 1:12 stuff for Mortal Kombat. One new figure every fiscal quarter would be nice. These guys tackle to much stuff though.

    Storm has gotten by on those ugly elbow joints, but at the 12" scale, it's a major aesthetic defect.

    completely agree. Glaring omission for this release.

    hoping to see a new 1/12 version of this design

    Managed to find a relativly cheap M Bison at the convention to replace the one I had with the broken knee, but I also went ahead to use the extra parts to make a more traditional looking Bison and modified the legs to make them stick closer for a better stance / head stomp attack

    Storm goes months without dropping news on a line, then randomly dumps a bunch at once like with Tekken. They will likely circle back eventually when they have something to show off.

    Awhile ago they showed off a Superman, who looked pretty good.

    I doubt the gun ban really hurts the Injustice line, plenty of characters to do that don’t feature guns that fit Storm’s MO, like Atrocitus.

    So I bought a Street Fighter V Akuma.

    I responded to the seller today after receiving it that I think it is broken.

    Here are pictures:
