Although this particular argument is for Rocket Red- there are several points within, that apply to the Matty subscription/ company as a whole.


Exactly my thoughts on what I read too stew. I like the Rocket Red figure more than I thought I would, but clearly Matty has some management issues. Like joeace said, its probably our faults if the sub fails :roll:

Anyone else have some QC problems with RR? Mine pops apart easily at the waist and the right hip joint. The go back together pretty easily, but they come apart with ease. Oh and yeah, he's too big and not based on any Rocket Red art I'm familiar with.

This version of the Rocket Red Brigade appeared in Green Lantern, Checkmate and 52. A newer alternate white helmet version of the Brigade armor was seen in Justice League: Generation Lost.

But that's the problem, it's not a giant robot, it's a human in a suit of armor, just like Iron Man.

I wonder if any of the customizers have worked their magic yet? Would love to see what they do with this.

However STIPE is designed to look like metal whereas Rocket Red has the musculature of a giant like Atom Smasher.

I just got him in the mail this week and it's as bad as I thought. Somehow, he seems to be going for about ~30 on Ebay so maybe it won't be a total loss
