Same here. I anticipate it'll take a while since they're using that Newgistics system for this one. But that is my final order at Dorkside!

Too small by about the same margin, I’d say. The horns don’t play well with the cape, either. We need something right in between.

I like this. I feel like there’s always gonna be something butting into the cape, whether it’s the helmet, hair, beard. It would be the case on an official figure. Long hair doesn’t lend itself well to articulation ever. I think this looks better than the MS Odin head from Destroyer.

Are those Hulk hands?
I popped the horns off and fiddled with the baf head a while and I think I may keep it for now. I can angle the horns a little higher when I reglue them.

The hands are from gamerverse outback Hulk. I can’t think of a comparably sized pair of Caucasian hands but I may look into colossus/apocalypse hands for an armored look instead.

You can pull out the shoulder clasps that secure the cape to remove it and then pop them back in if there’s a lot of clash between Odin heads and the material. It’s one of the cleanest ways I’ve seen a cape attached and I definitely want to try doing a soft fabric cape instead for better weighting

Too bad NECA lost this license and others don't want to make new ones. Not like the previous figures were that good (QC and all)...

Would have appreciated you just saying the words “I like the Odin from…, that would make a cool toy” rather than posting an image from a game some people won’t have played yet and might be avoiding any spoiler images from in a totally unrelated thread about a totally unrelated line of figures by a company that doesn’t handle that license.

Just to make you feel slightly better,
Spoiler! :
he appears in the first 10 minutes
of the game. I understand your annoyance but it's hardly a spoiler.

And yeah, I'm all for DST grabbing the GOW license, Neca seems to be done with it after making 2 figures from the first game.

Some people are saying MS Red Hulk orders are getting cancelled. Has anyone had this issue or know if he'll be reissued?

Oh come off it. A screenshot of a character who shows up in the first 15 minutes isn't a spoiler.

I didn’t complain about having the game spoiled for me, I said it would be preferable if art from a game not related to this thread wouldn’t be posted here for the benefit of letting me and others who intend to play it see it in context when the game presents it to me. Instead of absorbing the quite reasonable request you’ve now even told me when in the game the character is revealed.

I had my PO cancelled by Amazon several weeks ago.

You said "spoiler images." Words have meaning.

The game has been out for three weeks. I'm not sure what you expect. You'll literally see Odin if you walk into a Game Stop. Maybe prioritize playing the game if you're going to be so sensitive about how a character looks 15 minutes in. :lol:

I only had context of that Odin image because I own the game.

I think the reaction was more spoiler potential.

Hello. Which way is the "still" Stormbreaker supposed to point? Hammer side out or Blade side? I'm not familiar with BRB he just looked cool...Thanks!

I usually point the hammer side out.
