$35 bucks a figure, you have to order a set of 4, and that doesn't include shipping.  Plus, who knows what kind of delays there may be having to do with shipping, the plastic, the packaging, or anything?  Sounds like fun to me!!

No, you're right, that was in poor taste.

Keep 'em coming. Cheesy

There just aren't nearly enough BATMAN action figures.  There needs to be brand new BATMAN figures in stores at least once a week, and they need to be 25 plus bucks.

Very interesting, guys. Thumbs Up 

The last I knew, SPIDEY had a bench press of 10 tons, and COLOSSUS had one of around 80 tons or so, but who knows nowadays?   And yes, there were not a lot of characters with Class 100 strength, but hell....LUKE CAGE probably has that at this point.  Nothing is what it used to be.

I remember reading an issue that displayed stats and showed that characters like Spider-Man and Colossus were at the same strength class. This was over 20 years ago when I was in grade school so unfortunately I can't recall which issue it was. I know that at that time the X-Men animated series was in full swing as well as the 90s Spider-Man cartoon and I was in disbelief that they were at the same power level.  In Colossus's first guest appearance he brought down an entire building on a construction site and Spider-Man can barely lift a Volkswagen.  Apparently they weren't portrayed at the same strength level for very long despite it being printed in the comics.

Wow.  I've seen early appearances of Spidey where he was shown to have superhuman strength, but nowhere near Thing-level.  Haven't read any early Colossus appearances to have seen him around Spider-Man's strength level.  I thought he was always just below Hulk/Thor level.  I liked the OHOTMU stuff, and the trading cards from the early-mid 90s were a big help, as well.  Typically they "set in stone" what the characters' sizes and power levels were, even though some stats got adjusted occasionally.

Remember when the only heroes to have Superhuman Class 100 strength were Thor, Hulk and Silver Surfer? Even guys like Abomination and Juggernaut were less. Now they're giving out Class 100 ratings like hot breakfasts.

And we're upcharging you. 

They really need to go back to what they do well:  Animated, game, and DCWTV figures.

Black Widow has some major warppage going on.

Yes.  SUPER bowed legs.

It's part of her power.

Or Hulk's.   rimshot.gif 

Amiright?

No?

No, you're right, that was in poor taste.

You know how you loved our Black & White statues?  Well these are just like those, except action figures.  That we recycled.
