i just opened one. those cards are like he has those planks of cedar for salmon between his fingers. beyond that he is awesome. seems like a step up in quality or something. or maybe because i haven't opened a new one since snow started melting last spring?

Got my tracking number for Constantine. I can't wait. Hearing mixed things about head size. Some pics it looks great, other pics it looks to be too big. I guess time will tell.

It definitely looks too big. Probably the same size as usual but since it’s not a buff body it looks off. Maybe the coat will pad out his shoulders and it won’t look so jarring. At the moment he reminds me of when Ryan Gosling wore the fake head in Drive.

I dunno. It looks fine here for example:

The hair does add to the volume and the shirt looks like it's pushed down a bit. I don't think it helps that most photos so far show his chin right down to his chest.

His head is over half the height of his torso, so I’m going to disagree, but Mezco have always had an odd proportion look to my eyes.

Compare it to the promo:

The head is fine. If my hair was teased up like his, my head would also be over half the height of my torso. Lol

Was charged for John on 11/22, no shipping yet? Are most in the same boat? Hate to wait two years for a figure, only to have them take my money and kick the can further lmao.

I waited over a month for an item I had ordered direct from Mezco after payment had been collected. It does have precedence, even if we don't like it.

Hi,

This is my first post. (: I like Constantine, but it was already preorder sold out, when i learned its excistance... :/ I may still get it, paying second market price, but not this month. I already got so many figures this month, including Mezco Batman: Supreme Knight. The Tarot Cards in Constantine's hand is ridiculously huge btw.

Received my Constantine yesterday. Overall, he's a decent figure, but there are some weird nits I have (especially his ankles not having rockers....that is just weird). The heads all look best with the trench coat on, but I don't feel they are too oversized even sans coat. The paint on the faces is a bit off to me, but I can't quite put my finger on what it is that bugs me about them.

The accessories are all great, and Mez definitely delivered the value in that department. I sat for almost an hour swapping out all his hands and weapons/spells...my girlfriend started teasing me about how I was playing with my new toy (and I told her I don't care...no shame in my game). The ability to put a cigarette in his mouth or in his fingers is really a fun aspect of the figure, and really gives him a leg up over every other version of Constantine made in plastic to date.
