I guess I wasn't paying attention since this was my least wanted club figure, but no open hand to hold the lantern sucks!

Thank you TRD. I thought I was losing my mind or received a error figure when I opened the white box to make sure the paint app's were ok. I received mine, along with Metron a few days ago and I'm actually debating on if I'm keeping him or not? I don't know enough about the character to really care about him. He belonged in the GL waves or DCU not in the sub :|

I agree, but I guess enough people were happy to get him, so I won't complain. I considered selling mine off too, but he fits in on the current Lantern shelf I have going, so I just stuck him up there, lantern at his feet :( .

On the other hand (and slightly different topic), Atrocitus is the only reason I decided against a second sub. Despite wanting Rocket Red about as much as Atrocitus, I probably should have gotten a second sub and second Metron and sold off the rest.

Originally, the figure wasn't even supposed to come with a lantern at all, so "last minute" changes to change his hand just "couldn't" happen (or at least that is Mattel's answer for this.

I knew the figure was slightly "undersized" but man, it feels really small in my hands. Maybe it is because I just finished pawing all over Metron and his Chair, but Atrocitus really feels like he needs some more mass...

Sculpted beautifully, though, I'll give them that.

Yep, beautifully sculpted. I thought I was the only one that thought he was a tad on the small side :| Can you post some pics of him next to the rest of your GL shelf TRD?

I received this on Friday. It just seems like a half-effort, I guess...especially when placed next to the superior DC Direct version. :? Check the pics on this thread on the 'Mess...

:shock: Damnit. Now I'm gonna have to track down a DC Direct Atrocitus. Hopefully my LCS still has one, and it isn't marked up 7000%. First I've got to find a sucker to pawn this Atrocitus off on...

:lol: I'm thinking I might be selling mine too. Like I said, I have no connection to him and the DCD looks so much better. I'll check my LCBS just in case you can't find it locally Alcinde :wink:

Well, it's a shelf invaded my the Crime Syndicate and a few JSA figures, but I will try and get a shot of the dusty 'ol shelf this week!

DANG! The DCD version just makes Mattel's look... stupid. If I actually cared about the character, I'd be a tad bit upset, especially if I waited for the Mattel version.

The problem with the DCD Atrocitus is those wrists. The open hand is at a permanent right angle.

someone who WANTS Atrocitus, but hasn't got one due to DR's stupid inability to deal with cards *grumble, grumble grumble*

I don't like the mismatch of metallic paint between DCD and DCUC. Maybe that's just me but I'd rather have everyone one way or the other.

Ok, so it looks like I won't be getting an Atrocitus from Matty.

Please PM me if you want to sell him, I'll be the guy in the corner with the sad face :(
