I wonder if it's my lack of photo skills? Looking at my figure and the prototype shot, the capes are the same color. Sadly there faces are not the same.

Hopefully, this was in the reject bin for a reason.

If not, it's definitely the first major disaster of the sub.

I'm not a fan of PS to begin with, and this doesn't help.

I just might have to bump Constantine out of my "worst sub figure" slot. :lol:

Yup. Small head, big body. It's Sinestro all over again, but more obvious.

I really don't know for sure, but it could be the case of this specific figure. Check these other pics:

http://www.ebay.com/itm/DC-Universe-Sig ... 5aeb8f83da

the heads look more in scale. What do you think?

Head does look better in those pics. I'm gonna have to replace that chain with one closer to the prototype. Time to head to Michaels or Lowes!

Show us what you come up with when you get it together CC. Are you going to do anything with his spray on tan too? What's disappointing for me is that I was actually looking forward to this one. Now seeing these pictures and receiving a Uncle Sam with a splotchy paint job feels me with buyers remorse. I really want to support Matty, but they make it so damn hard :?
