    "Starting in 2020, McFarlane Toys will begin releasing 6"-12" ultra-posable action figures based on characters from DC's stable of characters from comics, movies, and video games - along with corresponding vehicles and accessories."

    Does that mean 1:6 Scale is possible? Or am i just stupid

    "McFarlane Toys" and "Ultra-posable action figure" in the same sentence?

    Maybe they finally decided to step in the 21st century... or maybe they think they already have with their 5 points of articulation (which is better than their "action statues").

    If you have a few minutes, check out some reviews of their Fortnite Skulltrooper. I personally have one just because of how good a figure it is (I dont play video games so I don't know anything about the property) and it was one my favorite buys of 2018. If these are anything like fortnite, then the excitement I have will have been justified.

    Just watched a review and it does look nice, closer to Marvel Legends.

    I was a bit bummed out when i saw the new Game of Thrones line. They look good, but with very limited posability.

    Great news....if this was the 90's.

    Their figures are outdated trash. Should have been NECA instead.

    Oh well, it's only 3 years. Hopefully Mafex makes DC comic figures.

    Their Star Trek figures are awesome. I'll get full sets of Harry Potter too and Game of Thrones too. Better choices than NECA the repaint and reuse kings.

    Also for what it's worth, the plastic quality on my figure was very nice. I've had more trouble with recent Hasbro and Mattel stuff (like the Superlex BAF )

    I am not the biggest DC fan but if I were I would not be getting too excited. I love Mcfarlane's figures but if what they have done with Star Trek is any indication...they will release 89 Batman with 78 Superman and...nothing else...

    I want exactly want McFarlane is best known for; highly detailed, limited articulated figures. Basically imagine McFarlane's Classic Comic Covers Spawn figures but with some of the iconic DC Comics covers of the last 80 years.

    Just give me classic Batman figures from artists like Adams, Aparo, Rogers, Perez. Bolland, Garcia-Lopez, Breyfogle, Nolan, etc. I want quality figures of Batman in his blue & gray costume with the yellow oval & capsule belt.

    Will it happen? Who knows? One can hope considering McFarlane himself broken into the comic industry with his work on Batman in the late 1980s.
