Love this movie. I allready have the 7" figure from Neca so I doubt I'll be picking this up but still very awesome.

Looks very nice! I have the NECA 12 inch (got it for 5 bucks on sale) and it is nice. Hopefully a company will someday make a V with a removable Guy Fawkes mask. I know they didn't show his face in the film but I think it would be really cool to have a mangled, burnt face under there.

The 12" figure, which is just an upsizing of the 7", ironically looks much nicer than the $90 statue version they sold :lol

Glad I didn't get that. I will probably wait on this DCD version until it comes out. I'll probably just cannibalize it for parts anyway, if I do buy it. I have been wanting to make a custom, but it's hard to find good parts. :D

It really was the worst purchase in all my years of collecting.

And the more I look at the pic of the DCD figure, the more his head looks way too high on his body and the mask looks too small. I need to see more pics. I wonder why DCD doesn't have this up on their site yet.

That actually might be a good thing... because I'd like to take everything and put it on a HT TrueType body.

BTW, they also have the belt way too low in that pic too. :lol

Well, this saves me a lot of trouble. It will need a body transplant and a few alterations to the costume, but should be pretty easy.

I wasn't looking forward to trying to find the pattern of pleather for the clothing, now I don't have to.

Exactly what I'm thinking... they usually have pin-head figures. Which in this case will make the transfer to a different body even easier.

Darklord Dave
10-19-2008, 03:37 PM
I'd never really considered transplanting a DC13 onto a smaller body because the clothes would just not fit right - but with this guy, it could possibly work. The head is definitely small enough, and the gloves and boots are easily sourceable. I think it's just a matter if the tunic is too long.

And he'd fit in better with my HT movie figures than with the DC comic figures anyway.

galactiboy
10-19-2008, 04:01 PM
I think being on a thin body will make it overall a lot easier to swap around. Might not even be off my that much, or at least not enought to be painfully obvious.

MSRP is $125, you think Joe will be that cheap? That would be $55 off.

He has the Sandman which is the same MSRP for $94.95 on his site.

From DCD's site:


Victim and villain, V voices the frustration and innate power of the people, the true values held precious by the masses.

A provocative and disturbing modern classic, V FOR VENDETTA is the visually powerful story of a dystopian not-too-distant future.

Dressed in the intricate and authentically detailed costume from the film adaptation of the classic comic, V displays his signature black cloak, as well as a removable hat, a non-removable mask, interchangeable hands and several character-specific accessories.

The figure comes with a display base and is packaged in a deluxe 4-color window box with a fifth panel.

This is listed "in stock" at BBTS... anyone have it yet? Curious if it will be swappable onto a true-type or other properly scaled 1/6 body?

06-26-2009, 04:10 PM
The problem would be that the clothes would be too big for a truetype so it wouldn't matter if the head was adaptable.

Some of the DCD Deluxe figures are on the shorter slim body, which was the same one Robin has. So if this is the case, the clothes would fit on a TT.

Natrix
06-28-2009, 12:55 PM
I picked him up today and will get more/better pictures up a little later tonight as I have a few things to do first but he is pretty awesome. He is on the thin body and the costume looks great with a form fitting, textured top (I don't have him out of the box yet to check out the cloak) but the belt is rather cheap looking since it is made out of plastic. I don't know if a body swap would be necessary unless you just can't stand the base body.

Here are some pictures. Pretty happy with him, boots are a little Hasbroish (rubbery and oversized) and the belt is cheap but the costume and cloak are top notch. I don't think there will be a better 1/6th V unless HT does one. Also, for those wanting to body swap, it might be possible with the slim shouldered TT otherwise there is no way that the wide shoulders will fit in this top without major filing down.

My thoughts as well. If he could be adapted to fit a regular TrueType, I would definatley get him. But I'd love to see Hot Toys tackle this guy. This does look exceptionally good for DCD though. And he doesn't tower over Obi-wan as much as I was expecting him too. Still too tall, but if he could be shrunk down to Sideshow's 12" size I'd be happy with that too.

The only things that look off are the hat and the rose. Both look too big, but the rose is a minor problem since I doubt I'd pose him with it when I could pose him slicing through people.

I'd be happy if the regular/wide shoulder true type could fill the shoulders on the outfit. But the narrow or slim would be amazing.

To be fair, I did have Obi's legs a little further apart to get him to stand so he loses a little height there.

Also, the hat is not as oversized in person as it looks in the pictures. It has to do with the angles and focal point of the lens.

That actually looks pretty good... especially for DC! I think this just got upgraded to a purchase figure. Even as is he looks good and even though a bit tall... isn't ridiculous like previous DCD figures.

And Hugo Weaving is listed as being 6'2" so being smidge taller than other 1/6 figures is A-okay :rock

That is a majority of the figure though. It would probably be cheaper to buy the figure at a good price and try to sell off the parts you don't want. I imagine everyone will want the same parts if parted out so we all might just have to bite the bullet and buy this guy when he starts going for around $30 or so on ebay.

I think Dr. Manhatten did so it could happen. I hope it does. I'd love to get this figure for that price. $40 would be my limit on this guy, especially since he'd probably get swapped onto a Truetype or at least a Buck.

Darklord Dave
06-29-2009, 10:24 PM
Just got him today, I really like that they included the rose - a nice touch and adds a splash of color. The boots are really oversized, even for a DCD13. If I were to move it to a 1/6 body my main concern would be the daggers - they're almost too big for the figure at this height, they'll be extremely oversized on a traditional 1/6. And the cape will touch the ground on a shorter body. But I'm okay with him as he is - he can stand with Sandman in the "wacky but genius comicbook writers" corner.

Got the V figure in the mail yesterday... overall its a very nice figure.

The body is actually a lot better than I expected and the outfit (especially the jacket) is very well tailored. But the body is still a bit too lanky and doesn't hang very naturally so I'm in the process of swapping over to a TrueType.

I'm using a standard TT and the jacket fits just fine, I think the oversized shoulders actually help fill it out better than the narrow would. Also I switched out the boots.

Don't have any pictures yet (sorry for the tease) but I'll post some when I get a bit more done.

I'm about 1/2 done. I got home last night and was pretty wiped out... so the more annoying parts (like getting the hands and head to work) I didn't have the time/energy to finish.

But I'll post some pics tonight, I think just swapping the body and boots makes a huge difference. I'll probably distress the belt a bit to make it look less like plastic and that might be enough.

But I'd say definitely worth the investment for the price Joe is charging.

galactiboy
09-18-2009, 12:02 PM
Messed with him a bit over my lunch hour... the DCD hands fit well on the old style HT pegs... but not the new ones. So if you are planning a body swap I'd suggest tracking down and using an old TT or at least getting some of the old wrist pegs.

I'm gonna dremmel down part of the neck connector from the DCD figure so it will work with the HT neck and then he should be ready to go :rock :rock :rock

I did...I laid the TT over the V figure to compare the shoulders and it looked bigger to me. I just thought that with the more bulbous TT shoulders, the top wouldn't fit so I never bothered to try it.

WE NEED PICTURES.......

Looks like they are separate... I think real hair would look great, but would be a bit more work than I'd like to do :lol

I switched him over to a TrueType... so he's a bit shorter than what he originally was. But DCD used a different body that is slimmer and about 1/2 shorter than the standard one.

One kind of annoying thing is the gloves aren't long enough. Makes it hard for the sleeves to fit inside of them. I think the Sideshow Maul gloves would be a great upgrade.

The SS Maul gloves should be able to fit over the smaller wrist pegs too, so it should work out nicely for you.

Yeah, the smaller sized body from DCD is a bit taller than a TrueType, but not by much and about as broad in the shoulders. So the swap can be done... but there are some rough parts. I imagine it would be worse if you were using a tight fitting costume.

But you're pretty much out of luck if trying a conversion on one of the giant 13" figures.

I know, I wanted him to fit in with the other DCD figures, so I used the standard TT. The balls on the DCD body were hanging out even more, if you can believe it (I think I'll use double-sided tape to hold his undies in place).

Sorry for dredging up an old thread, but didn't want to start a new one. Had a read through and seems no one has tried (or posted pictures of) attempts to put real hair on V.

Heres my attempt:

Bought this Obitsu head off of eBay:

http://i11.ebayimg.com/08/i/001/42/1c/4870_12.JPG

So, I trimmed the hair, and then scalped him:

Then scalped V :chew really easy to do, two separate pieces and it peeled off without hassle.

Glued the plastic scalp onto the V's head (probably don't have to do this, as the force of the hat on his head keeps the hair on nicely too).

Sorry for the late reply, believe it or not (u might not like hearing this) I used the original stock body :lol with modified ankle and wrist.

For V's ankles I used the ankle+ joints+feet from HT TT body to fit the boots.
And for his wrists I used revoltech's small ball joints, so at least I can have different wrist actions even though still limited.

And as for the reason I used the stock body (just in case u r wondering :P ), is because IMO its the perfect fit and scale for him.

Is this the general consensus of what all the Neca V resin statues look like?

I had to sell my DCD mask a little while back during some tight times, and am definitely upset about that. I want to replace it with some sort of V figure (since re-buying the mask would be too much).

I don't really love the look of the V figures I've seen, and was hoping the statue would look decent. Of course, all the promo pics I've seen look great, but if they look like this in person, forget it.

Sorry to dredge up an old thread. I haven't been here in a while.

I just moved my V to my desk, and noticed his chin under his mask is painted flesh-colored. Tsk tsk. Also have yet to get him better gloves that fit around his sleeves.

The mods in this thread are cool but one thing I'm noticing; even though people are complaining about the boots being too thick or big, they are accurate in the fact that they are VERY shiny. In one of the very first scenes of V for Vendetta you see V getting ready and you get a close up of his boot as he wipes his hand across part of it, presumably wiping a smudge away, and it is very shiny. The boots on the mods I'm seeing, while looking much more realistic than the DC Direct versions, are very dull and matte. His shiny boots though really add to the figure IMO, just as much as the pattern of his tunic. Maybe Han Solo or Jedi Luke boots would work?

You could also try adding some shine to the boots with a gloss medium or maybe even shoe polish would work?

I would not recommend Sideshow plastic boots though as they really look pretty bad in person and they would likely bulge from the extra pants material you'd have to stuff down in them.

Are you using the narrow or the slim? If its the slim body save that rare body for something else and use the narrow shoulders or the advanced. Let me tell you first hand that body (slim) will look terrible on it... i know because i tired it. I tried the old wide shoulders and it looked bad also. Best is just the narrow shoulders. looks great.

IMHO, best choice for this one is old HT_TT or new Advanced.
BTW, legs plates from new Advanced makes really good pants shape.
For more details about my figure please go HERE (http://sideshowcollectors.com/forums/showpost.php?p=3155993&postcount=145). Photo of undressed body included.

I have a total of 6 DCD 13" figures, none of which have broken on me. 4 of those are on the slimmer body. Not too sure what you mean by flimsy? I've had them for years and haven't had any problems due to breakage or anything of that nature

Unable to find DCD version at my place.
So just got the Neca version 12" V for Vendetta @ $24. No real fabric clothes. All plastic plus rubber. Very limited articulations.
But for me it's good enough (from distance) for displaying.

Yea some ppl can be a bit harsh if something isn't as good as a TT body. I understand the gripes about the bad bicep joint and the cut wrists but to me at least (and I know I'm the minority) I still don't think they are bad bodies especially not the slimmer one. The Spirit, V, Jonah Hex and Sinestro look great on that body. I don't disagree that things could be fixed but I don't hate on them. I like the DCD 13" line especially since no one else seems to be interested in doing comic styled 1/6 figures

Ski knows I have a lot of respect for him. And knows I'm not being condescending. Frankly the stuff he does with customs is way out of my skill set. I can't even begin to express how impressed I am with all that he has done in that department in the last year or so.

However, it is no secret that his pics were often less than stellar (see many of King Darkness' post about 'grainy pics' and 'get a new camera'). I gave him a few friendly pointers a while back (which were welcomed), and it shows. I feel privileged to have had a small part in helping Ski show off his collection/skills. As to posing: it's a big part of my collecting style and I love seeing others get into posing as well. None of this is anything like calling him "boy" OR "bud".


Again, you don't know me. You are incapable of comprehending the way I (and many others) think because you are trapped in the cynical, sad little world in your head. And I would kindly ask you to ____ off and never be so presumptuous as to judge the intent behind my posts again. And if you must, keep that SH@T to yourself.

To break it down for you. You did give Ski props. And then as fast as you did, you took those props away by taking credit for it yourself. But as I told you before, if you don't get it, it's not worth explaining it. You're ultimately responsible for how everybody sees you and I've gotta say, the majority, though not as vocal as Valfar, Bam or myself, agree.

I also don't believe that everything needs to be handed out with candy-coated handjobs. All it does is confuse people or give them a false sense of your meaning and makes you a brown-nosing patsy (not you per say, but in general).

People post that a hell of a lot. :lol

Nothing I said took anything away from Ski. The fact is that I have given some pointers to Ski about point and shoot photography, and it looks like he's applying some of that (lighting, tripod, maybe ISO, etc.)... wait why am I explaining this again? Did you read and comprehend that the first time?

I plan to get lots of pointers from Ski for a custom I'll be working on this year. If I do the work myself and apply what he shares with me and the custom comes out good, would you see it as "condescension" if he were to say "Nice work! You do me proud!"? I, for one, would would see that as perfectly appropriate, and not in the least bit condescending or conceited.


But as I told you before, if you don't get it, it's not worth explaining it.


Why can't you see that I get it? I understand how you took my initial post to Ski, and I explained why it was incorrect. Why can't you just admit that you were being presumptuous and except my explanation? Why is it never you that 'doesn't get it'?





You're ultimately responsible for how everybody sees you and I've gotta say, the majority, though not as vocal as Valfar, Bam or myself, agree.


Again, here is an example of how highly you view your opinion. Why can't you see how arrogant you sound.


And do I even need to comment on how many people feel about you. You're ultimately responsible for how everybody sees you as well. Yes a few do say that you say what they are thinking (and in some cases you even say what I am thinking) but more often people are just upset or offended by what you say.



I say what I think because I don't believe in pretending to be somebody else just to fit in and be a "cool guy."

I agree with this. I also think that it is rare for people to say something that is completely disingenuous. I choose to try and see people in a good light, and where possible, impute good motives, instead of assuming the worst about everyone.




I also don't believe that everything needs to be handed out with candy-coated handjobs. All it does is confuse people or give them a false sense of your meaning and makes you a brown-nosing patsy (not you per say, but in general).

Assuming that by "candy-coated handjobs" you mean 'seasoning your words with salt*' This is simply not true. You can make your point (even if it's contrary to what the majority are saying) in a clear, but respectful way. I honestly don't know if I've ever seen you do this. It does take a little more time to make a point that way, but it will be more affective, and will contribute to a positive environment here, instead of just getting people all riled up (like I am right now :banghead :lol).

Yes, I see it a lot, but again, many don't agree (which I also said). And again, just because you post the first thought that came to someone else's mind, doesn't mean it's the best thing to post.

From what I've seen, when people agree with you, it's when you are commenting on a company, a sculpt, or a genuine troll. When it comes to passing judgement on members in general - me or anyone else - I have not seen someone say: "you said what I was thinking".

And here's the difference between you and I. I don't care what people think about me. Look at my friends list. Those are people who wanted to be my friend (which I use loosely given this is cyberspace). I think you'll find that a majority of the people who dislike me, don't like having their posts questioned or being called on their oral diarrhea.

Yea some ppl can be a bit harsh if something isn't as good as a TT body.

I like the DCD 13" line especially since no one else seems to be interested in doing comic styled 1/6 figures

I agree. True Types are arguably the best, but they are overpriced. :(

I have a TTL body on the way, and I really hope I like it, as a cheaper alternative would make me very happy. And from what I've read they have shorter forearms than a TT, which fixes one of the major flaws of the TT. It also has narrower shoulders than the Standard TT. And the Sideshow Prometheus body has nice articulation. I just wish it had stronger joints... I should see if those can be tightened.


Regarding the DC bodies:

1) I wish they weren't 13". Just like I wish the Medicom RAH was taller. It would be nice to have a consistent scale on the shelves.

2) They have kind of poor articulation, with two main problem areas:


Only ball jointed shoulders, with no back and forth/ up and down movement.

Cut wrist and ankle joints, with no tilting.




However, the lanky legs do look kind of cool for a more comic-booky style character.

well I'm not a nut about consistent scale, but the rest i agree :lol

also a good alternative to the TT is the ACI bodies. a lot of ppl in the SW Custom section are beginning to use them. It's what I'm going to start using. they fit with HT pegs from what I can see and heard

The newer TTLs are a bit loose though, so you need to watch out for that. One thing I do like about them though, is they come with a headplug for figures like Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark who need a bigger ball joint.

Nice! I haven't seen these before. Will definitely give one a try.

Can the TTLs or the Prometheus be tightened like a TT?

The Pro can, but there's really no need. Every pro I've gotten on the newer figures (Pro 1.1+) has been relatively tight. The TTL's I'm not sure, but I think they're glued together (don't quote me on that though). I used a few for my Team Test customs (waiting on noggins from Ski) but they're still packed away.

Just thought I would give people a heads up. I have been looking for this guy for a while for a good price and it's hard to find. Most people here want 100+. ANYWAY I stumbled upon the listing on amazon ( Amazon.com: V for Vendetta (Movie): 1:6 Scale Deluxe Collector Figure: Toys & Games). GoHastings has him for only $49.99 and one of the private sellers has him for $39.99!

Anyway I got mine, Going to do the hair mod and I just wanted to let people know incase anyone was looking for this guy at a good price :yess::yess:

Wow... For under $50 shipped... This guy was probably the best bang for buck I've seen. The fasteners on his back arrived broken, but with his cape and belt, it's completely hidden. Great accessories... Just wish he had more hands. I wanted to pose him about to throw double daggers (sai?) in one hand, but the plastic blades are much too thin and flexible. I'm also a bit confused on which way the hat is supposed to be oriented. The boots are also really shiny, but I can't remember if V kept them that polished in the movie. One of my biggest disappointments is the cheap stand. It's a c clamp style and the cape fortunately hides much of it. The problem is the clamp goes around his waist above his belt... Pushing his sheathed daggers outwards a tad. I'm not sure who manufactures this for DC Direct, but if they had given more hands, he would be awesome even for double what I paid.

I wanted to resurrect this thread. I just bought mine off Ebay, and it should be here on Thursday. Not bad $57 shipped. I love all the customs shown. Any words of caution that some have seen while doing the work? I have not decided if I am going to keep him as is, or work on it a bit. I usually like the figures as is out of the box.

If anyone has any photos to share from their collection showing V in his place on the shelf, I would love to see them while I wait for mine to arrive.

Thanks dudes!

The only issue I had porting him over to a HT body was that the joint that connects the head to the neck post is not compatible. If I remember correctly I ended up using the joint from the DCD figure, but reducing the size of the ball until it fit into the HT neck. It was a bit of work, but not too bad especially if you have a dremmel handy :lecture

Aside from that the rest of it was pretty easy. I'd also swap out the boots for some of the DiD or Newline leatherlike boots.

Love it man! Good for you! This figure is great! I will admit I had my reservations (hence waiting so long to get him) but when I saw him in person I had to have one.

I think the body is nice, the proportions are accurate to Hugo in terms of build appearance. The paint is nicely applied (no smearing or over lap). The clothing is suburb, and the accessories are well done.

I will agree that a nicer set of boots would certainly add to the "darkness" of the character, but I will say in the movie, V's boots were spit polished. So having these shinier boots is still ok too. I think I may wait a bit before I decide to customize, just want to make sure how I feel about in in a month or so. I really don't see the need to do any custom work, but the results on this thread really took the figure to the next level. So we will see.

I would love to see some pics on the shelves of your figure to see some of the creative stances being done. I will take some shots tonight and post them tomorrow.

I found mine on Ebay. I have been searching for about a month for one to come up at "the right price." I was not willing to spend more than $70, and I got him for $57 after shipping. If your willing to spend more than that there was another on Ebay I believe with a Buy It Now of $120. None of the big online stores have them (BTS, CSC etc.) Amazon has a few starting at $70 mark.

Mine is just the body that came with the figure. I believe that in this posting one of the guys who customized theirs said something about a slim type. Go back just a few pages.

I am curious what others did about the warped brim. Mine is not bad at all, but enough to make me want it perfectly straight.
