Neck broken as in head snapped off, or what?

yes, snapped clean through, at an angle too, not straight.  I get the impression the joint was too tight, or something, so when the head was twist-tied in, it just broke.  I'll have to look at it more tonight, see if I can fix it, or if I need to buy another one.

Speaking of these figures, have you guys seen the ame comi costumes they've inspired:

That Wonder Woman one is delicious!  As is the Supergirl one.  And now I want the Robin costume (and the figure).  they're not available in the UK yet though.

Wow, that's pretty cosmic!

I'll spare everyone by NOT buying any of those costumes.  Evil

I just posted pics of that Supergirl on my blog, I likes it.

I also posted this last night.


I need to get Jade though, she looks great.

I see the S-shield on the front of Steel's bikini bottom and my mind can't get past the concept "Chastity Belt of Solitude".

You know, I hate to sound racist, I really don't think I am, but I think one of the main reasons I don't like Steel is that her skin is too dark.  It totally clashes with her armor.  I think if they would have lightened her skin a bit, or perhaps darkened the armor color it would work better for me, I'm not sure.  I think pose is good, and I like her Uncle Steel, maybe if I had the slightest reason to care about Natasha I would like her figure more.  But it's one of the very few in this line that i don't care to ever own.  Cheetah v1 is also  one of those, but the upcoming black 'stealth' deco of Cheetah looks quite good.

I have Hawkgirl and Donna Troy on the way, and I received Zatanna last week, and I find I like her a lot more in person than I thought I would from pics I've seen, and the Halloween version looks awesome.
Andy, if you ever feel the need to sell Batgirl (Cassandra) think of all the figures I have helped you get, the Walmart Exclusives, the fast shipping I did for you (as opposed to the lazy-ass job I did for fms), and then sell her to me for cheap.  I NEEEEED that Batgirl, and I can't find her.  Oh, and I also finally won Wonder Woman v1 for a decent amount too.

Batgirl's one of my favourites. But I have a Marvel Legends Emma Frost you can have, real cheap.
