Anyone having the same thought? Sideshow maybe?
My Medicom 1/6th Spiderman has two broken arms btw.

I would love to see that happening. What Medicom offers are too little and too brittle!

Hot Toys starts doing Comic Figs, and a lot of us are in trouble.

SSC states they aren't interested. HT is our best bet, but so long as they keep with the movie figures, I personally can live without the comic versions.

I definitely feel exactly the opposite.

I agree that the movie figures are pretty lame for the most part (due exclusively to their crappy designs, and in no way due to Hot Toys ability to make movie-accurate toys), but would be all over comic figures if done right.

:lecture I agree.

I am not opposed to comic versions, I don't see the point.
- Comic lineup would include the same list of characters either made by Medicom or which will be / or was featured in film. It will be the same list of most popular characters which saturates the market / character.
- Comic lineup has too many artist variations of a character. Everyone has an opinion which is best / worst rendition of the character.
- Comic lineup could offer more obscure characters that will not see film. It is highly unlikely because these characters won't produce sales.

Which is why I don't see the point.

They could go the Sideshow PF route and just pick one they like or create their own variation.

Pbun I would suggest that you post this question in "Ask Sideshow".

No need to be sorry for your opinion. Don't get me wrong, I'd buy the ones I like as well, but we'd be talking about a line of figures that would be out of any company's scope.

Give me a John Byrne Alpha Flight or a Paul Smith X-Men line and I'd be very happy.

I dunno. This figure and character design is awesome. "What would you prefer? Yellow spandex?"

Yes, HT is more likely and has been rumored. But I have to agree that I prefer the movie versions. They just work better in the real world. People are complaining about the spandex on the Sabretooth PF, and I think we'd hear the same thing about 1/6 figures, even more so, since the cloth wouldn't be as formfitting as it's drawn in the comics.

Why not both?

Hot Toys could make a super-hero style body for comic versions and use the more standard bodies, not overly muscled, for the movie versions. It's a win win situation for everyone.

This thread kinda faded away, am bringing it back. Definitely there did be comic book fans wishing this to come true.

I personally would love to see some Sipderman villians done in Steve Ditko's style.

As long as they don't look like those Famous Cover Remakes by Medicom!!
