Yikes! Not only was it wrong, but he was totally unaware of our requests to fix it?! There's a breakdown in the communication there.

Please, PLEASE, PLEASE, tell me you set him straight!!!

And by the way... Thanks!

ps: Now you know why I never give up on these small little details. (And often end up encouraging fans to be... well.... Fanboys.) Honestly, if we don't point out these issues over and over and over; they just don't get handled. So yeah, our attention to detail and knowledge of the source is sometimes greater than theirs. And if that wasn't obvious based on our improvements to the Doctor Destiny design, it should be obvious now. The proof is in the pudding.

How about orange-shirt BEARDED Aquaman being changed to STAS series Aquaman? That's has to be one of the best examples.

...Speaking of STAS Aquaman though, they should have reused his arms for Dr. Destiny lol.

I honestly wanted orange-shirt BEARDED Aquaman. It's a shame "fan demand" ruined that one for me.

It's a matter of swapping heads. Get both figures and I'll show you how.

Good question, (and thanks for staying on the original topic :wink: ). I'd like to know that myself. Some comparison pics would be great!

If Stew got it that would be great because castings of the large body would not be too far behind!

I just checked with him and someone outbid him. So until another one pops up no castings. :(

Unless it's one of the other CJ members who hasn't spoken up.

Personally I hope they in scale with JLU. I do not mind collecting and expanding my JLU GL Corp as well as the other color Lanterns.

Well, we just found out Jorge Alzate was the lucky winner. But probably still no casts as he's in South America I believe. :( Hopefull we'll get SOME kind of news on this line before much longer.

EDITED: Corrected location of the awesome Jorge ;)
