Some of the hardest to build BAF/ CnC ever or at least in my opinion!

I dont feel any of those compare to Giganta.. (especially since I could have built the Hall of Justice twice)

Yeah but she's part of DCuC and that's a whole other monster on it's own.

First thing I thought of when I saw this pic was...

"HOLY CRAP!! Parallax is attacking the Hall of Justice! Quick shine the Bat Signal in his eyes!!!"

I didn't even know Mattel produced the remaining parts to Parallax.

Are those parts from finished product, or Chinese samples?

Hector Hammond. One of the lower "legs". It's not even a totally necessary piece once Parallax is plopped on to that base, but the completist in me still wants it though. I just want to find it at discount because I've paid a lot for the other figures. The lowest I paid was maybe $11 for Tomar Re at a Target Clearance. Plus, Hector is kind of a runt and he's not worth $16+

It's an expensive C + C. I happen to like the toy, I just have no place to put him! He's sitting under my computer desk, poor guy.

Parallax definitely doesn't photograph well. I've tried. He's a little better in person. Especially if you think of him as a cool toy with great little details and playability and not as as an immaculate piece of art to display. But, mileage may very, etc.

Parallax is such a horrid waste of effort you could probably offer me $100 to take him and I'd still not want it.

But again, your mileage may vary. :wink:
