I hope they reuse that sculpt (no coat) as one of the Magistrate soldiers in a Future State line. That content is rich with amazing action figures potentially.

McFarlane DC Multiverse Build-A-Frost King wave

How is Endless Winter as a story? Worth reading? I see it’s on the DC Universe Infinite app.

One of the cool things about this line is it’s getting me to read more modern DC stories because by the time the figures are released, the story is on that app.

I love Batman and I love cold weather alternate looks (I blame Empire Strikes Back) but for some reason that Batman isn't doing it for me.

I think it would be a great figure if the utility belt isn’t so loose on him. If it were tight around his waist like in the comics or like Han’s holster in Empire or Arthur’s in red dead 2 I feel it would look great, but as loose as it is it looks like it will fall around his ankles at any moment.

It’s an OK story. Set in Infinite Frontier continuity I assume because it introduced a new and so far, fairly minor Teen Titan character. Out on the app and in hardcover. Out in softcover soon. I think. Truthfully, I just think this was part of the Black Adam face turn.

I saw 4 Black Adams at Target this morning....no one else from the wave.

He actually looks pretty good in person. I'll eventually pick him up, but I'll wait for a sale. I have no interest in the Frost King (even after reading Endless Winter), and I just can't pull the trigger at $25 when I don't even want the build-a-figure pieces.

Yep came here to say the same thing in regards to Black Adam. I saw four and grabbed one.
I canceled my Amazon preorder since he was the only one I still required to complete the wave.

Okay opened Black Adam and he is one tall dude, lol.
He stands around 7 1/4 inches. He is just a smidgen less than Etrigan.
He's got some good range in his upper torso for flying poses and it's tight.
Once I bring him back to the vanilla pose position the lower abdomen is tight and not loose which surprised me.
His head sculpt is a little bigger than Superman's but not as big as GL Hal's in the 2-pack.
I personally think he is a real good figure with good range in the upper torso, nice sculpt and tight joints and I don't mind not having pointed ears.
I never really understood why in the comics he has pointed ears anyways being I thought he was Egyptian.

Target had two of the McFarlane Frost King BAF figures. So now I just need the Green Lantern to finish the set.

Well, that was faster than I expected. My wife and daughter came home from Target with McFarlane Justice League Endless Winter Green Lantern.

Ah, I swore pretty loudly when I saw that the Batman Beyond 5-pack was on sale and I missed it. :D But I did score a few things, thanks!!
