Here's the thread to talk about the March DCSC Elongated Man figure.

Here's our early look at him: http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/main ... ngated-man

Why the decision to go with that buck? Shouldn't Elongated man have, I don't know, a neck?

Right on. Definitely needs the Plastic Man neck, especially with that long neck action in the package art!

As happy as I am that we're finally getting Ralph in the line I think he needed the stretched neck far more than the alternate hand. In the comics it was always a rare occassion to see Ralph *without* his neck stretched out.

Ill wait for someone to make a head cast then just customize one of the many Reed Richards figures that have streachy parts

Couldn't agree more.

Mine has a gummy hip joint. :(

Hoping the freezer treatment will fix it.

I really like the head sculpt. And the extra hand is nice, but, yeah, they really could have put in an extendable neck.

Anybody try using the Plastic Man one with him?

Got my Ralph today and I'm happy to have him! I too wish he had come with the plastic man neck extension, but it's nice to sort of have the Satellite Era complete. (For the record, I'd count it as 100% complete if Zatanna was in the correct costume. :))

Love the clique segmentation and the placement of the Atom. Tried it a while back, but couldn't get mine to hold for long periods of time.
But thanks to Arrow's quiver, it's no longer an issue.

Yup, couldn't agree more. Would settle for the Sindella version (and actually considered buying the Identity Crisis version just to be "historically" accurate.)

I'm pleased with him. In my opinion he's a long overdue figure in the line. It did take me a while to figure out WHO he was made out of. I didn't catch on to the Creeper upper body because, in light of the double-jointed elbows and knees, that's hardly my favorite figure in the line. Thank goodness Ralph isn't thus afflicted. The body is reallyt a clever combination of Creeper and Plastic Man body parts, that I think works well together.

Yeah, an elongated neck might've been preferable to the hand, but on the whole, I'm pleased.
