What makes you say that? He looks about the same height as Alan there.

I have one of those coming along with a Metron and his chair but I think Metron was a Pre-Order. Also have Atrocticus in some of my threads.

Not grossly out-of-scale, but still much taller than he should be. He sits higher than Alan, and a full 1/2 head taller than Terrific behind him. In comic-stats, Jay is about 6'0", and Alan is 5'11"...but that figure makes him look 6'5".

Comparing the knee joints, the lower legs of the figure look to be really long. Not a huge issue I guess, but still bugs me a little. :?

I saw that pic in the hauls thread and just assumed it was the DCD Atrocitus. Don't you have a sub though? :?

Maybe it's just camera trickery with Mr T behind him. The knee joints do look off but I think they're roughly the same height minus his hat.

I think it's just the helmet that's making him look every so slightly taller.

Is the official day of sale still 16 April?

Alan's knees are bent, too.

They're all based on the same bodies, so I can't imagine there being a major scale issue.

Nope. Start date of the sub has been pushed back to May 15 (ish depending on what day the 15th actually falls).

News has been sent out in an email, on the Matty forums, and on the front page and in threads here at AFI.

Schedule has been updated through June as well.






Jay looks great. I don't think there will be any real scale issues once the figure is in hand. Height differences in the pic is due to the hat as far as I can tell.

Now ... gimme gimme gimme

No, never got one. Didn't get into these figures until after that cut off date.

If you compare the stances between GL and Flash at the knees and hip joints, you'll see GL has been put in a wider, lower stance, probably to help balance him without using a stand. Even Mr. Terrific behind him seems to be set in a wider stance, making him appear shorter.

I was watching some of these auctions on Ebay for Metron, Atrocitus and Jay. It looks like they have been taken down by E-bay. I received a message about the Metron auction.
