Kind of a small photo, but you can see that the heads are all quite different. Considering that the MK characters don't have weapons, I think they could have made each characters slightly different in terms of arm position.


if you look closely you can see that they are exactly the same below the neck though, removable accessories excluded, and the MK set actually says "with 6 secret accessories included"


Well, sure. But this was quite common from toys from that period. The point is, you can easily tell them apart just by looking at their heads. Considering how detailed action figures have become in the past several years, the MK set looks kind of cheep.

Dude, you have just GOT to read the original Mirage comic series, it's seriously one of the greatest indie comics ever created. It's super dark and super sardonic.


About a year ago I found a site that had all of the issues. While the comic is a bit jarring at first because the artwork is so 1970's underground comic looking, once it finds its footing it becomes quite a good read.

but what other features could they add, when they look identical except for colour, in the game? my point is, that why make them differently when they shouldn't be different? and, at least they are boxed together, rather than sold separately.

I have those exact turtles, I know Donatello turns into a real turtle and Michaelangelo has a manhole cover in place of his shell, I never understood what it was supposed to do though.

I've recently been getting really big into Secret Six and one of my new favorite characters is z-lister Catman... so I was walking through a local store the other day and stumbled across this beauty.

Image

I turned to my friends I was with and uttered one word...

He now stands on my shelf next to Moon Knight and Captain Pike from the first Star trek Pilot

I always thought Cat Man was just a Simpson's joke.

It's actually weird because his costume's the same color and everything.

I wonder if one borrowed the concept from the other.

Yes, the farily odd parents character is based on the DC comics character.

Bought this RoboCop today.
Was like 17 bucks.

Check it:

Love how his size is perfectly proportionate to both my T-800 and City Hunter Predator figures.
I WISH I had a xenomorph. Ugh.

Btw, the gun actually fits in his leg holster and it shuts too.
And it's spring loaded. Triggered by a button on the back of his leg.
His gun hand is also switchable. Has that data lance thing too.

He's SO fucking cool. And actually really articulate. I mean, you can hit all the classic poses more or less.
Nothing outrageous though. about 11-12 points of articulation. And the pistons on the back of his feet aren't static. They actually compress or whatever and allow the feet to move up and down.

I'm like a 11 year old kid all over again.

lol thanks. I also have both DS1 and DS2 isaacs. DS2's looks way better though, so I keep him on that shelf.
He was right under the necromorph, but I moved him, swapping with the T-800 to get Robo and Arnie in the same shot.
