I've been thinking about adding the new 6" Young Justice Sportsmaster to my DC collection, and trying to integrate him as best as possible with my DC Universe Classics (since I consider it unlikely he'll be made within that line specifically).

I am a little concerned, however, after seeing the figure, that he might be noticeably shorter than DCUC. He has more unique parts than I initially expected.

However, it's also a little difficult to tell in the store, since Sportsmaster is posed rather oddly in his package, with his back bent backwards and the one leg doing a martial arts back-kick. I put his package next to a DCUC All-Star Green Lantern and just wasn't sure.

Has anyone purchased the YJ 6" Sportsmaster and opened him? How is he heightwise relative to most DCUCs?

Is it just me, or does he seem a little taller than the standard DCUC figures?

Wow, nothing like a photographic reference! Thank you, kidsidekick.

And taller I can handle. Back in the 40's, Sportsmaster was a pretty big guy. It's shorter I'd want to avoid.

BTW, nice Terra figure.

I added him to my collection, scale is fine, and I can deal with animated style since I have Banshee, Major Force & Icicle from Public Enemies mixed in.

I added him to my collection. The mask could be a little more like the real deal, but he totally works.

That 1st Pic of yours Noisy is what made me add him to the collection. Wish his accessories were more sport themed.

The one with Batman made me laugh out loud in the middle of work. Good thing I have my own office.

Thanks to all -- those additional pictures are just what I needed (and that Green Lantern one is hilarious). I'm definitely getting Sportsmaster. Of course, now I'll probably get to the store and he'll be gone, but he's a new enough release -- he'll be back, I hope.

I keep hoping to find him, but doubt I ever will. Artemis is destined to clog the shelves forever.
