Post by: Scotty on November 16, 2009, 05:31:42 am
I resisted for so long - but I finally gave in!

Awesome!  Again, I'm jealous.  I've been wanting to get into this line since the second wave with Power Girl and Supergirl.  I almost bought them when they were on clearance for $18 each, but I decided I didn't have the money, and my cousin sold them on eBay for $30 each.

But I will somehow get the new Batgirl, because she's just too cool to pass up.  And I'd really like to get the first Wonder Woman (while the new one is nice, there's no way my wife will let me buy that one).

More pics, please?

Horrible.  But you probably already know I think that.

The first WW one is very good though.

Necro-post!

I just got the mini-Harley Qinn Ame-Comi, because I love Harley Quinn, and I'm liking the style of these statues.  I have preordered the next one coming that I MUST have (Duela Dent), because the others I wanted to MUST Have I missed out on, and now they're going for $100 on eBay, so I don't want to miss out on pre-ordering certain of them, lest they become super rare immediately.

However, I just won the regular Harley Quinn figure, along with the Zatanna and 4 misc Barbie figures.  I only kinda wanted Zatanna, don't give a damn about the Barbies, but got the whole package for about what I saw the last Harley go for, by herself.  So I see it as having paid $60 for Harley, $20 for Zatanna, and I've got 4 Barbies for free, that I can either relist on eBay to pair down what I paid for Harley, or even give to my little girls, as they love Barbie (particularly the younger one).

Anyway, I'm excited to receive her, still need help finding Batgirl v2 and Wonder Woman v1, need to figure out how to budget for all the upcoming ones I want (like the Black repaints of Supergirl v1 and Batgirl v1, Raven,  and more).

Anybody else collect this line?  I currently have Batman, Artemis, and mini- Harley.

I have a new swag of figures that I've just photographed and will be posting shortly. I missed out on Harley - really need to track her down.

I like this like alot more now that they have moved to smaller bases. The original ones were gigantic.


Title: Re: AFB TALKBACK: DCD Ame-Comi PVC Figure Series
Post by: ryanlb on February 17, 2011, 04:20:09 pm
Do you mean the mini figures, or have they shrunk the bases on the 9" figures?


Title: Re: AFB TALKBACK: DCD Ame-Comi PVC Figure Series
Post by: Scotty on February 17, 2011, 04:27:08 pm
The bases on the 9" figures are much smaller now.

Post by: ryanlb on February 17, 2011, 04:30:24 pm
Cool, I didn't know that.  I haven't opened Artemis beyond pulling the tray out of the box, seeing her neck was broken, and sliding her back in.  I'm going to have to try to fix it, or I don't know how I'll display it.


Title: Re: AFB TALKBACK: DCD Ame-Comi PVC Figure Series
Post by: Scotty on February 17, 2011, 05:00:01 pm
Neck broken as in head snapped off, or what?


Title: Re: AFB TALKBACK: DCD Ame-Comi PVC Figure Series
Post by: ryanlb on February 17, 2011, 05:07:04 pm
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:

http://www.comicsalliance.com/2011/02/04/ame-comi-costumes-revealed/

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.

Post by: Scotty on February 20, 2011, 05:22:12 am
Wow, that's pretty cosmic!

I'll spare everyone by NOT buying any of those costumes.  >:D

I  think that Wonder Woman and Supergirl look fine.

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.

Thanks, I've already got ML Emma Frost.  I'd take any of the Bowen Emma Frosts off your hands for real cheap, though.

You planning on getting Raven and/or Duela Dent?

I've got Duela on pre-order, but was going to risk the eBay route for Raven.

They're doing Duela Dent and Jesse Quick? Talk about scraping the barrel. Any day now they'll announce Judy Walton and Infectious Lass.

It just occurred to me, they could do a whole Duela Dent collector's set. Duela as Harlequin, Joker's Daughter, Catwoman's, Scarecrow's, Riddler's, Penguin's.....

That would be awesome, and I would probably buy every one of them.

I've been meaning to take pics of my Duela Dent figure for over a month now, and I've been too lazy to do it.  So, thanks for showing me up.  Nice pics, and good review.
Look forward to seeing and reading about Mera and Raven, I'd like to get both of them, but I'm too broke to be buying this line anymore, for the time being.


Title: Re: AFB TALKBACK: DCD Ame-Comi PVC Figure Series - added Mera & Raven

Next up in the line are Mera and Raven - and they are two of the most impressive of the lot!
