Meh.

Yet again, I am, apparently, in the minority. Nothing in any of those pics is the least bit interesting to me.

I have yet to see anything that makes me say, "yeah, I'll consider it" let alone, "Gotta Have It".



i've never liked action figures based on movies that look like actors...like....oh boy...i'm gonna run out and get the 'driving miss daisy' figures and vehicle...i just can't wait.....or action figures and trees from 'the bear'


i guess that collect and connect bat signal was kinda neat but the figures were crap...unless you have a thing for guys in black suits.

Nice. First look at Faora. Beautiful looking figure and sculpted details. I look forward to her being that one figure that is impossible to find at retail.

Faora is a great looking figure! I've been sort of luke-warm to the past Movie Masters. I bought a few Dark Knight and GL figures, and only bought the DKR figures to build the Bat Signal. That said, I really like this figure and it feels to me like it could fit into my DCUC display. None of the others I've seen have seemed a like a "must buy" to me, but I might consider this one if I can find it at retail.

I might even try to nab that one.

Do the Movie Masters fit in well with the DCUC figures?

Faora might work, but the MMs are noticably smaller than DCUC.

"Man of Steel™ Movie Masters® Figures
Back at NYCC it was confirmed there would be a Man of Steel™ Movie Masters® line, and now the figures have finally been revealed! With authentic detail, deluxe articulation, and supreme quality, these figures offer fans the premium collecting experience. Figures include:
Superman™
Jor-El
General Zod
Faora"

Source: http://news.mattycollector.com/blog/201 ... r-reveals/

Looks like we'll just see these figures for now. I really hope there's a series 2 of figures to be revealed. :wink:

Four figures doesn't sound like enough to include a worthwhile build-a-set, be it a Daily Planet globe or some other potential item. Was it ever confirmed that this series would have a C&C, or was that just speculation/assumption due to the TDKR series having one?

i think it was just speculation, but the green lantern mm line also had a baf. the ghostbusters mm line did not. however, what other figures would there be? i guess clark kent and a zod variant, but most of the other figures are either inconsequential to the main public buyers or female, which apparently action figure lines stay away from. meaning there probably wont be a jenny olsen figure. maybe john kent, but why? maybe perry white, but again, why? possibly lois lane, but there was never a movie masters rachel dawes, talia, carol ferris or janine melnitz. tdkr had catwoman and ghostbusters had zuul. that was it.

i think it would be cool if there was some kind of fortess of solitude or kryptonian stand/display c&c packed in, but it's doubtful. i also think, personally, it's going to be hard to move figures named "zod" off the pegs in good ol wal-mart, u.s.a. His name is too close to "god" and i think wal-moms will be put off by that. maybe not. just a thought. definitely doesnt have the name recognition that luthor or brainiac have. i will say, though, after the last 3 star wars movies, it's nice to see a movie like this NOT be written and cast specifically to sell action figures.

I am surprised no one has noticed these figures do not have ab crunchs. Also I can not see a Collect and Connect for this line the packaging looks too small .

I actually read somewhere that they will include a stand. I'm guessing that nixes the CnC possibilities. I was really hoping for a Daily Planet globe!

The Daily Planet globe from the movie doesn't really look that impressive for it to be a CnC

Well, Toy Guru said that there will be 6 figures in the line. We already know Superman, Zod, Jor-El, and Faora. Who will be the other 2 figures?

It's unbelievable, but that's all the Matty Man of Steel shown at the Toy Fair :?

Maybe we'll get some robots from the movie too (good army builder, if you ask me):
