Supes looks good. Do we know if he's on the same body as Batman?

Mafex never reuses bodies AFAIK. Even on suited bodies like Harvey, Scarecrow and John Wick where they could easily get away with it, they don't. Pretty sure Clark is gonna be bigger than Batman in every direction by juuuust a hair.

That would be preferable. I was playing around with Batman earlier this week and realized that I hate his legs.

Anyway, looks like Batman will drop any day now:

Mainly because you can't straighten them out all the way. But I also hate how the knee joint pops out if the double-joint is fully extended.

So far I’ve seen 3 reviews of the Black version and all have had messed up paint on the regular heads nose. The paint doesn’t line up correctly. I hope that all of them don’t have that issue.

I would be lying if I said I knew exactly what you meant. But that shot I posted up there makes the legs look pretty great when bent or straight, to me. I've never had any issues posing my blue one, but hey, everyone has their own views.

Can't wait for this figure to drop. I should've grabbed that Bruce body back in December, but then again, it wouldn't really fit in my display at all so I'm not too bothered.

Look at the comic figures from the side with the legs straightened - they aren’t straight. It’s always a slight angle.

This has been an issue for a long time now. I probably ruined them for you, but it’s also a problem on Spiderman, Venom, etc. Doesn’t stop the figure from being able to stand without issue but it’s certainly there.

But they are the cheapest, and they were one of the fastest with DC direct stuff

Hlj has charged me for Batman and I received a fraud alert from my bank. I always pay hlj through PayPal connected to one of my debit cards. That's never happened before.
