Isn't it funny that Reverse Flash is taking so long to get to us? He's the reverse of fast.

Don't side-eye me.

Robo-just wanted to say THANKS for playing Nanny to the deranged troupe of Muppet Babies that were crapping their diapers in the previous threads. Now-onto toys!

Anybody seeing Lobo at retail? I tried to order him from both Gamestop and Amazon and got burned both times.

Also-I now want a Peacemaker line. Also Doom Patrol.

Wasn't me, but I'm pretty sure they said they just did a black wash on his face. It pulled out more detail in the sculpt and shifted the color enough to match the rest of his skin.

That's what I plan on doing when I get him.

Speaking of Lobo and his lack of guns... mrgtoyz.com has the main man's Shotgun up for pre-order. For those of you who like paying as much for an accessory as the figure itself.

I have his Peacemaker's gun and it's excellent.

Cool. New thread with a straight-forward title!

I received my Year 2 Batman sets today.

I dislike the cloth cape mostly because of the extra plastic collar piece. I plan to remove it and only use the back attachment to secure the cape from behind.

I think it'll greatly improve the look and make the figure seem more stream-lined.

Not sure I'm ambitious enough to paint a piece to a $50 exclusive...but I saw this in a Facebook group today. Looks incredible.

Also seen some customs of 3J Batman with the Y2 head that look great. Just can't get past the gravel texture on the 3J Batman cowl. I assume they'll release a figure for the new but also old costume (that resembles Batman Inc) so maybe we'll get one with a standard neck joint.

Really interested in seeing pictures of this once done.

I'm curious to see what you come up with. Warhammer looks a little too sci-fi imo but I'm sure now that I ordered one someone will have a great, cheap alternative.

I feel like this is the thread that's going to make it....as long as we keep the topic to the toys and just ignore the noise.

Got the year 2 Batman today and am actually really impressed with him the head doesn’t bother me as much as I thought it would. Also still can’t order a swamp thing because I really don’t want to spend the money for a chase version of him but he looks so good so as soon as I run into him or bbts gets him he will be mine

I wish I could see a pick of that. The baffling white clown makeup face is what's keeping my Lobo in the box. I've been contemplating returning him since I got him. Not sure I can get past those mismatched colors.

Man, I have a lot of DC stuff to report today:

Just got a notification that my Y2 Batman will be here tomorrow. Looks like this might actually happen. I mean........the email seemed very official......
