>>5420847 I admit it's not the most original idea, but there's so many Batman figures released across different companies frequently it'd be cool to gather them all up as a scale guide,w which is something you occasionally get requests for. I also wanted to do little jokes like having Roger Smith serve as the Batman substitute for Figma and Daredevil subbing in Marvel Legends.
>>5420986 In theory the hinge allows for more movement in its one axis. With a ball joint the ball's shaft is going an inherent obstruction when the ball-socket hits it, where as a hinge is limited only by the design of the figure. Of course, there are those ball-joints with a cut specifically in the middle of the socket so the shaft won't be an obstruction. Hobbybase makes some aftermarket ball-joints with a cut, but they're also brittle/weak over time so take it as you will.
Personally I don't think the hinge is a bad idea in itself, and probably leaves less room for gaps, since with ball-joints you need craters for the ball to meet the socket.
>>5420986 >>5421142 Sure is people talking about toys they don't own, muchless notice what the articulation is noted in OP's chart. It has a ball joint where the normal ab crunch usually is. They gave it a lower ab hinge because it offers a greater degree of motion than a normal ball joint would, as >>5421142 said. So you get the best of both worlds by having two joints there instead of just one ab crunch.
>>5421862 Odd to have 6 inch figures as opposed to roughly 1/12 scale. They're pretty good figures, but the lack of thigh swivel is an issue. There isn't enough room on the ball peg or socket to get a good range.
>>5421871 They are roughly 1/12 scale, the same way marvel is roughly 1/12 scale.
Thigh swivel needs to happen, better bicep swivel connection needs to happen, as current is too loose or gets loose too quickly. Head ball joint needs complete rethinking as current use limits range too much. needs a hinged ball like black series.

>>5421897 I'm not sure what you're showing me, friend. 1/12 is such that someone who's 6' translated to that scale would be 6". The icons batman figure is under 6" when batman is around 6'3", I believe. The bucky cap mold would translate to around 6'1", and cap, who's around 6'4", is also at a fairly accurate height. So I'd definitely say, at least in general and outside of outliers like giant Thor or wrecking crew, the scale isn't actually that far off from 1/12 in ML.
Unless I'm missing something. I haven't slept in over 40 hours.
>>5422273 Did you not read what I wrote? Obviously the line as a whole isn't 1/12 but in my exact post I share a couple examples, from the post I responded to, which have quite accurate sizes for the characters represented. In that other pic with Black Panther he's supposed to be 6', so toybiz is more accurate in this case, but 6'2 that the bucky cap mold is is hardly breaking the bank. Due to the reuse they obviously won't get scale exactly, but they're mostly in the ballpark. Another example for Icons is Mr Miracle. The guy is 6' but his figure is quite short compared to the others. If he was accurate he'd be about the same size as the current batman, who'd be a bit taller himself. I don't get where you're missing my point. If you could explain where you're coming from rather than general statements and calling me new it'd be great...
>>5423311 That's good. Maybe that batman reallt was supposed to be dick. The height and thinner build match up better. I guess then they really just look small at this point due to smaller proportions.
>>5423311 >>5423439 Yeah,its Dick as Batman, the figure is from the Last Rites storyline,where he was Batman. I think they did that so when they do a better version eventually its not going to seem like a double dip
I know for a fact I'm gonna get one anyway but lack of thigh rotation is such a bummer considering how DC 6-inch/ish action figures have just always been behind every single modern toy curve but these sculpts and articulation look like moving forward at least a solid step.
I dunno, maybe by lacking thigh swivels we have the slight compensation of not seeing the ugly straight cuts they usually do for thigh rotation. Although, they could just put them at the top of the thigh.
Anyway, eager to pick them up and see DC toys finally get away from the DCUC-style design as well as the DC Direct t-crotch days.
>>5434243 I gotta say I was bummed at first but the overall look and attention to detail is great. These feel like they should be a little more expensive than they are. Less toy like than the dcuc with their blocky proportions. Icons seem like they're somewhere in between dcuc and figuarts.
