Not quite as impressive as the prototypes which is odd for Mattel, because usually the figures come out very close to the prototypes and they're awesome. Starfire looks like she has 80's hair and both of their heads look shinier than they should. They're still good, just slightly less than I expected.

What does Mattel not get about NOT packing them in plastic poses. It tears them up. My Black Lightning was BAD. Fortunately holding him up to my heater over about a 2 day stretch got his arms and legs in decent position, but still bad.

Stick him in boiled water for a few seconds, reposition and then stick him in iced water and he will be in good shape. Saves time and heart ache. :D

Yeah...I know that works (found it out later)....but the main point here is I shouldn't have to do it.

Oh...by the way...BOOMER SOONER!

So you know..I'm a vols fan...and I usually pull for the SEC in their bowl games....but I've been to norman for games on multiple occasions, and always had fun. Several of my good buddies are sooners, so I pull for them when they play

I have had more messed up figures because of those stupid dynamic 'in-package' poses. Toy Biz was notorious for doing this!

looks cool, thanks for sharing. question: is the package collector friendly to open, like the LOBO box? thanks again!

Yes it is. There are 3 pices of tape on the top of the box and the figures are being held in place by those clear rubber bands. Easily replaceable.

Back at ya. My sisters and biological mother went to UTK, so I have a few orange shirts mixed in with the crimson and cream. I usually make it to one game a year over there. Even this year. Tennessee is my 3rd team behind WVU and Ou.

And you are right, you shouldn't to do it but it's a neat trick when you need to.

I just want to do on record as saying I hate the rubber bands and the action poses are nice but the warped legs and all; not so much.

Starfire doesn't look as bad as I feared she would.

To be clear, though, she doesn't look great. Solid, though.

Someone's doing the same feature at Fwoosh...with more/better pics.

I suggest that those of you who are in a panic right about now go and check it out. You'll probably be relieved.
