  1. Like I said, he's too damn tall.



    how tall would you say he is?


    The ML1 Iron Man (and all those who used his body), ML8 and the Movie figures are all about the same height-6.5". I'm using that as the standard. I remember the MS figure being listed as 9" tall in the Previews, but he looks closer to 8". So the MS figure is 1.5"-2.5" too tall.

  2. Naw Im not getting angry bro. I just hate when ML are compared to DCUC. They both have their flaws. They are two seperate toy lines made by two seperate toy companies.

    I agree Mole Man is gay, but atleast they could have made a more modern looking Penguin. Detective Batman looked like he jumped out of the "Super Friends" cartoon. I prefer the Grey/Black Bats since I think it represents the most current realistic portrayal of the character. Superman Blue/Red was a badly conceived plot concept from the 50's or 60's that DC thought would be a good marketing tool to up sales on the Superman titles after the whole Death/Reign/Return/etc of Superman storylines were over... and it failed. They are very well done figures for sure... but who would have even placed them in their top 100 most wanted DC figures? No one. They needed either a Superman or Batman in the wave. Christ... look at DCSH, we had variants of Superman and Supergirl with a different colored "S" shield? Atleast when Hasbro has pulled this it made since i.e. Green Quicksilver. When did Supes ever have black on his "S" shield besides in Kingdom Come and that Supes "S" is styled different and he looks like a grandpa. As far as Batman Beyond being one of the best-selling DCUC... I cannot understand that. That show could not hold a candle to one of the best cartoonds of all time... Batman: The Animated Series. The design and premise of the show was stupid. Not musch different then X-men: Evolution or Spider-Man Beyond or w/e the hell it was called. Guess I am a purest when it comes to comics because besides stories that are one-shot tales of alternate realities like "What-If?" or "Elseworlds" with some exceptions like "The Dark Knight Returns" or "Kingdom Come", I despise non-canon universes i.e. Marvel's Ultimate universe.

    I am not bashing EITHER lines... I am just saying its not really fair to say one line is doing better then the other or is superior to the other, etc. Sure, Hasbro has had some screw-ups... hell, I was one of the one's that was completely disgusted when I first saw Hasbro's ML's... but they have gotten alot better. If you dont like one of the lines, dont buy it. But dont bash it. And dont be like "Blah-blah Marvel is better than DC" or vice-versa because its bs either way. Enjoy the figures my friends... these are the golden years to be a comic fan and action figure fan!!!


    A lot of collectors today loved Super Friends, often with it being the first line they had as a child. Since the DCUC line was planned on being a spiritual successor to Super Friends, it only makes sense to make a Batman in that style, let alone the fact it hadn't been done in a 6" scale before.


    The Superman figures are easily the best we've gotten of him ever, and since that body is being used for the new Classic Superman, we'll get a figure of the big blue boysout that will last a few years. And yes, they came up with versions of Superman and Supergirl that makes little sense, but the blue skirt Supergirl was again the first of that costume, and they released long awaited villains such as Mongul and Darkseid that hadn't been done by DCD (the version of Mongul still hasn't).


    Again, a lot of today's collector liked Batman Beyond, and he hasn't had a (good) 6" scale figure done, so he makes a good deal of sense. That and the figure uses a body type that well-suits him, and the articulation is great. hell, the only bad part about him is the glossy finish on the black, and even that's an easy fix with some sealant.


    And apparently you are bashing DCUC at least, if not both, since you are complaining about things that no one else does. And it helps to split you body of text into paragraphs to make it easier to read, and make you look less dumb. :spidey_deadtopic:
