Wow, he looks great! I'm very excited for this figure. The lack of biceps swivel does seem odd. :? Thanks for posting pics. That last one of the corps leaders is so cool!

I would bet money that when he got it from China it did not have a Lantern at all. Odds are that is the Lex latnern but I do not doubt it will be the same lantern. the bicep swivel is insanely insulting to me ...

Yeah of all the figures to NOT use the bicep figure on, this seems to be one that should have had it. But the figure does look great.

What the hell!

They've increased the prices and now they're removing articulation? :roll:

Keep this crap up and I won't be subscribing in '14.

Im glad I have the DCD one, this one will be going right to ebay.

Its really sad what has happened to DC 6" figures at Mattel.

If they do not wow me with new reveals, this may be my last DC sub. And thats saying a lot from a fan boy like me

I am really sad because I am honestly considering canceling my credit card and grabbing Huntress since so far shes the only one I really want. I hate to even be thinking about it last years sub had its lows but ended really well over all if you ask me.

Mattel noted a second tier when they sold the sub. They needed to hit that sales tier in order to investigate giving Larfleeze bicep-swivel joints, but that second sales tier was not reached. Ferns rerlly derr vert werth therr werlets.

Received my Larfleeze figure over the weekend. I've really been looking forward to this guy (who should've been part of the All-Stars line before that got truncated and never showed up at retail), so I was very pleased that he finally arrived.

I love everything about this figure -- except the arms.

Problem 1 - Double-jointed elbows. I NEVER like double jointed elbows or knees on anybody.

Problem 2 - NO UPPER SWIVEL ARM! This REALLY hinders the figure's posability in this regard. In fairness, the arms are posed slightly inward, so it's not as bad as it could be, but WOW!

A perfect swivel point exists between the orange upper sleeve and the black mid-sleeve. But no -- Mattel had to go for the double-jointed elbow.

This was not only a bad mistake, it was a lousy trade-off.

I'm glad to have Larfleeze, but this articulation really bugs me. I hope it doesn't happen to anyone else in the future.

I actually love the double jointed elbows on this figure. It allows him to have a greedy grip on his lantern.
