I can’t believe I’m such a sucker for Crow merch I’m gonna pay an extra 20 bucks for a chair he didn’t use while he still doesn’t come with any of the guns he did use.

I don’t want to complain about it, but I do feel like this would be a great opportunity to introduce double elbows to the mold so we could at least pull off the iconic pose from the promo pictures. Or another head with a different expression or a better likeness.

Then we could get another Eric with double elbows AND guns AND a better likeness. Exclusive to Walgreens.

Sorry to be so negative, y’all. I’m still gonna buy the damned thing, but I’m just disappointed how they’ve handled the whole license so far.

Re: The Crow and guns

Someone please correct me if I'm wrong, but it's my understanding that the "no guns" situation is because of Brandon Lee's estate wanting it that way.

I imagine given the circumstances of Brandon Lee's death, a "no guns" rule could be required by the estate.

The SDCC set looks neat, but I'll probably pass. Since this appears to be the Walgreens version of the figure, I'll just keep looking for that instead. The chair is very nice, but I honestly have little use for it.

I would definitely love some concrete info on that. It seems very plausible given his tragic death. Makes me wonder what the Mezco version will include.

Yup preordered the crow, tron and the NBX sdcc sets.

Any word on more Disney select figures, like black hole and what not?

Any thoughts and doing the crow: cit of angels? Very underrated film.
I believe we are going forward with more Black Hole figures, not sure of timeline.

Ownership of Crow is convoluted, we may not have those rights. But if merch continues to do well, we'll see.

I would explode if you guys made Ashe from City of Angels figures and statues.

Criminally underrated film.

Ain't that the truth.

The movie projects seem to be cursed because they always want to redo the first film (at least 4 attempts have been made, and all have failed for various reasons), instead of looking at any number of the good extended universe stories that have been done.

I would love some merch for CoA, as I actually really enjoyed the movie, and loved Perez's portrayal of Ashe. If it can happen, I would be delighted.

Crow is already sold out at Entertainment Earth.

BBTS still has him.

I don't remember the scene when Crow grew his neck an extra 2 feet, but I need to rewatch.

All jokes aside, I love DST, I want the company to do good, I've got some incredible merch from them the past few years but there have been some major whiffs lately in likeness and engineering. The Cobra Kai boxset should be an instant buy, but none of the figures really look like the characters other than Kreese and they all have giraffe necks. Instead I'm going to wait and see what Playmates does.

Yikes. I was excited but now after seeing these pics...

Hasbro are leagues ahead with likenesses and paint. Same for Mattel with their WWE figures.

I know exactly which actors the two blondes are and I've only seen the Hilary Swank Karate Kid.

I'm really enjoying the DST Muppet figures. Is there any chance of DST making Looney Tunes characters in the same vein? I don't think anyone's ever made poseable Looney Tunes figures.

Has anyone seen the Walgreens Crow? Has it come and gone or not yet hit or what?
