Hooray, animal rescue! TMM & I have a red-eared slider. Not a resdue,

@  Noideaforaname : (23 May 2017 - 03:26 PM)

@MEDdMI - Me and my teacher both had box turtles. The teach did animal rescue work, so two of her turtles were actually deformed and couldn't be released (one's shell was too large and the other's too small), so they ended up being class pets.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 May 2017 - 02:12 PM)

They had regular flat, cereal bowl-type molding at the bottom, so it wasn't much an issue that I can recall.

@  OrionPax44 : (23 May 2017 - 02:10 PM)

How tough is it to clean out those bowls. I'd imagine the nooks and crannies from their spines are tough areas.

@  LBD "Nyt... : (23 May 2017 - 01:47 PM)

I had two of those bowls, Michelangelo and Donatello

@  MEDdMI : (23 May 2017 - 01:46 PM)

Nice. What kind of turtles?

@  Noideaforaname : (23 May 2017 - 01:10 PM)

I had that turtle bowl too. Never did the obvious 'pretend to be Shredder and dine on turtle soup'... but that's because I had a bunch of pet turtles plus I frequently pet-sat a teacher's trio.

@  TheMightyMol... : (23 May 2017 - 12:36 PM)

You ate out of a Ninja Turtle? Kinky.

@  NightViper : (23 May 2017 - 12:33 PM)

My bowl didn't just have a picture of a Ninja Turtle, it WAS a Ninja Turtle. And came with a box of Cookie Crisp that I didn't eat.

@  Foffy : (23 May 2017 - 12:31 PM)

My favorite dish is this bowl I had as a kid that had a picture of a Ninja Turtle on it.

@  MEDdMI : (22 May 2017 - 09:00 PM)

Xellos...? *looks at avatar pic* speaking of old anime... DRAGON SLAVE!!!

@  Xellos : (22 May 2017 - 08:56 PM)

Yeah, Tylor is awesome. One of the few series (Tylor and Escaflowne) I watched multiple times subtitled. On VHS even. Own two sets of each on DVD (or BD in 2nd Escaflowne's case). Original Tylor DVD and the remastered DVD, and both sets of dubs for Escaflowne (not counting the aborted Saturday morning edit, though I did tape that as it aired).

@  Steevy Maximus : (22 May 2017 - 08:28 PM)

Man, I'm so sad I missed so much of the mid-90s anime. The Irresponsible Captain Tylor is SO MUCH FUN!

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:43 AM)

where's GALVATRON in MP form dammit?! he didn't even get in for the anniversary year...

@  TheMightyMol... : (22 May 2017 - 11:35 AM)

I'm still waiting on the rest of the Dinobots.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:24 AM)

The Decepticon MP cassettes are probably my favorite MP figures so far. Fantastic little dudes.

@  Bass X0 : (22 May 2017 - 11:23 AM)

I want a Masterpiece Blaster if only because I'm fond of the Masterpiece cassettes and want Takara to make more. They should also do Slugfest and Overkill since they were in the cartoon too, even if it was only very briefly.

@  Robowang : (22 May 2017 - 11:21 AM)

I just want the Chip figure. The only Autobot cars I have or want are G2 Sideswipe and Hot Rod.

@  Paladin : (22 May 2017 - 11:14 AM)

another Autobot car. "yaaaaaay."

My DCUC Wave 19 arrived last week. Very cool sculpts all around, with the exception of Stargirl, who is even worse in person. She's a bit of a disaster. I'm going to try and fix her abdomen and face, but so far, I've just made her like a chainsaw sculpture.

Thanks for starting the thread! I considered it the other day, but stopped for some reason.



As for wave 19, it will ship to me as soon as I change all my shipping info over to the new house. Kinda sad Stargirl looks like such a freak. My daughter really wants me to buy one for her...

STRIPE makes the whole wave worth it. I know little of the character, but I love the figure.

As for Stargirl, she looks like this: http://thefwoosh.com...rt-i#more-17971

Only her torso was even more messed up on mine. It's molded in flesh colored plastic, then painted blue, then flesh paint on top, and it looked awful. The casting quality was really crummy too. Add the bizzaro-muffin-top, jokerface, and kinda odd proportions of the small female DC buck, and it's a really tough figure to love.

I'd be all for the rehash of BB but needs some wings. Larfleeze is cool but don't the different Lanterns of the different corps have funky looking handles. SB Prime looks like he needs another head resculpt. And whos the Plas wannabe? Looks too serious to be Plastic Man.

As a club member, I am very happy not to be receiving any of these.

I agree with Daith, Superboy has a pinhead. Larfleez looks worse then his DC Direct version. Plastic Man comes from a mini I didn't read, and which sounds awful.

BB goes fairly high on ebay so I can't really fault that one.

Brainiac needed Koko, so I gave him Koko:


And by mistake an online store sent me the wrong figure and let me keep it free, so I put it to use making that timeless Jim Lee character that's bound to be forever remembered by the common consciousness as one of the greatest characters ever to see print: Deathblow!

I know some Wildstorm characters were folded in the DCnU... has he?
Regardless, he does have his uses:

And today, I found out Mattel did a single-carded version of the poseable DCIH Batman included in the many Public Enemies multipacks.

But this one sports a nicer bat-sigil, a nicer skintone on the face AND a nicer contrast between the gray and the black. And it comes with a spiffy button.
So naturally, best I can figure, it's hella rare:

Terry looks quite odd done in the mainstream DC style, imho.

I have seen the 12-inch Movie Hal Jordan, and man, that is one ugly toy. Light-up feature actually looks quite cool, but it is just overall not as articulated as a toy of such height should be.

I know I am probably the only one collecting the line, but... any news of that supposed third Mattycollector GL Movie Masters toy? Still hoping for Stel, or Hannu...

It's something I've noticed more and more of late, but it seems toy companies have now decided that the bigger the toy, the lesser the articulation.

Hasbro's been doing the same with its larger Marvel toys.

Thanks to finding a capeless Robin in a DCIH lot I needed to fill gaps in my collection, I managed to make a human-form Beast Boy!
Took a few liberties with the color scheme since the details varied depending on the era/medium.

The Bat-family keeps it real in the Batcave!

Hopefully I can find good base parts for Oracle so she can join them.


As an aside, I love this little playset. It doesn't take up much space because everything closes up into a small case, and it has tons of neat details. I'll have to do some mods, like removing the sticker of Bruce Wayne's action figure from the rotating wall and painting the bat-gadgets on the wall and the workbench.
