Considering it looked like Spider-Gwen had single knees in the promo (that looked like utter crap when bent) and there was a fairly vocal amount of bitching regarding that, myself included, hopefully they are working on a much improved lady body.

Bishop is up. I'm passing on him, myself. With Mezco making more comic accurate figures, I'll likely just get those.
To be fair, it -is- comic accurate:

Well shit! I forgot about that look. QUIT TEMPTING ME!!!
I'm getting less and less concerned with comic accuracy. Is it immediately identifiable as the character? Good enough for me. That Mezco Bishop is looking pretty sweet.

Sorry to derail the thread from the Bishop/Spider Gwen discussion but has anyone found a headswap that works for Iron man? Is it even possible?

I'm seriously considering splurging on him but don't care too much for the stock head. The faceplate gimmick, albeit VERY cool, gives him a proportion problem with the head size when its up and I also just don't care for the Tony likeness underneath, he looks odd. I'm hoping someone has at least tried to pop the head off because from there, I can work with that.

Basically, does it have the standard Mezco dumbell ball joint and is it damaging at all to pop the head off? Thanks!

Hey man, check out the comic Tony Stark head made by Manniple Studio. It looks great and it's compatible with the Mezco neck. I'm actually going to buy one for myself tomorrow. Btw, check ebay for it!

My Thanos arrived today!!!

I'm currently at work, but I plan on posting pics tonight to my Instagram account. If you wanna check them out, my username on there is: dancejoedance18
I'm going to try and get some extensive shots, and I'll do some size comparisons, too. That's one of the things I'm personally most eager to see!

Between it being Friday, getting Thanos, AND Resident Evil: Village...
it's turning out to be a damn fine day, if I may say so myself!

Wow! Thanks for sharing, he looks great! Looks massive too! Now all I need to see is him compared to some Marvel Legend and Marvel Select Thanos figures.

"Comic accurate" is usually an oxymoron anyway. Every new artist ends up changing every character a little, and over time their look evolves.

More so now than ever. These costumes change every year or so now. What does it really matter if the look is from a movie, a video game, this year's comic reboot, or Mezco flair? Does it look like your favorite character? Does it have the characteristic beats? If the look works for you great, if not, another new look is right around the corner.

Exactly.
For my part, it's purely about whether I connect with a depiction or not.
As long as the key elements are there from the comic look, I'm generally good. And even if they aren't I have learned to be open minded.

What's going on with the release of Thanos?
It's trickling out in a strange way.

I just came here to ask this as well. Has Mezco already shipped out their pre-orders? If so, when? I ordered from BBTS, so I'm wondering how long of a wait I'm in for.
