Anyone know if Mafex (or other companies makes any 1/12 generic marine or military figures in tactical gear? I’d like to have a couple to use for some art projects.

Not Mafex. Crazy figure did a bunch of Black Hawk Down figures, damtoys also did Vietnam era marines (a little shorter than 1/12).

Figma did a kind of generic Metal Gear Solid soldier, but Figma tends to run small, and this thing is years old so it'll cost an arm and a leg. Sorry I even brought it up.

Almost 20 years ago, a company called Plan B that split off from Resaurus Toys did a line called "Special Forces."

Probably hard to find and expensive now, and also a bit antiquated as far as articulation goes, but this one looks really cool. (If you can still find one.)

As for MAFEX, they don't make generic figures; everything is very character specific.

Medicom's website is actually the rare corporate website that's actually useful. They have a complete listing with pics of every single figure they've ever released under the MAFEX name.

Rrrraaahghaghghah speaking of the Medicom website, it would appear Dark Knight Returns Superman, originally slated for release in just two weeks, is now pushed to July.

Damn it. By July I'll have to leave the country, so it's just another figure I have to send to my friend and then have him send it to me. Double shipping again. I can't win.

It seems that McFarlane just solicited a very decent looking Bermejo-style Batman. I wish Medicom/Mafex would do the same. I would love to see this design improved with a pin-less figure, wired cloth cape, multiple heads and hands...

I'll still get McFarlane's since I'm a fan of Bermejo's artwork, and used to Mezco and Mafex price tags, $25 per figure makes me forget about scale issues or the like. But, hopefully this will make more people see that this Batman design is quite interesting and will get some attention from Mafex.

It's almost the 23rd. Is it time for Hush Poison Ivy yet? Is it time for Hush James Gordon yet?

Today's reveals are Rescue from Endgame and Black Noir from The Boys TV show.

So the waiting game continues.

I am disappointed that there was no reveal for Batman from the movie 'The Batman' (2022).

Give it time, Mafex will have something to show by the time the second movie comes out on Blu-Ray.

If that movie ever hits theaters. There are so many scandals that are leaked out of Warner Bros entertainment over every other DC related project these days, you can’t help but wonder when/if all the actors, directors, producers and executives are going to slug it out in the next celebrity MMA title fight.
