    Default Re: DC Designer Series: Trinity by Jason Fabok

    The earlier multi-figure statues have been a bit smaller than 1/6 scale.

    It's 2017. This is Batman, Superman, and Wonder Woman at this moment in time based on very specific art.
    Sorry, but there will always be those who prefer the classics. I'm one of them. Whenever I see a company release New 52 or Rebirth merch I understand that I am not their target audience. Congrats to those that like this. It's a pass for me and money saved.

    To new comic readers and collectors this may be the costume that they grow up liking. A lot of the new generation don't appreciate the simplistic storylines of the 40's and 50's comic books so they definitely will not like it. That is a narrow approach to collecting that would put this business out of business if every DC statue was made with the 'classic' look.

    I haven't read a single DC issue from the 40's or 50's and I like the classic look the best. I personally don't care for the NEW 52 or Rebirth costumes. Jim Lee is an awesome artist but a lousy costume designer. I don't mind some changes or tweaks. I thought David Finch designed a great looking Bats costume when he took over the book but Jim Lee's costumes are a major fail on every level. His 90's X-MEN redesigns with bomber jackets and endless pouches are a travesty and a joke. We like what we like and I don't like New 52 or Rebirth costumes. It's my money and I won't spend a dime on something I think looks like garbage. As for these new readers you keep talking about...where are they? Have you ever looked at sales figures of comics since the NEW 52 and Marvel NOW have started. Sales are in the toilet for both companies.

    LOL, I actually don't think that's a result of ugly costumes. It's probably due to financial reasons across the collector community. Interests have changed over the years. Too many books to chose from featuring various versions of the same characters have diluted it. The constant reboots and new issue numbering have made it a daunting task for new readers to jump in and make sense of anything. I personally have not looked at sales figures but in talking to managers at my LCS some books sell well and others don't. They seem to be holding their own and readers speak with their wallets, if a book is crap they will not continue purchasing.

    BTW, I don't like this statue because it seems contrived. I'm older and have seen a lot of repetition.

    Sales haven't tanked because of costumes. They've tanked because of all the PC bs and SJW writers that have changed comics beyond recognition. Sales have tanked and both DC and Marvel are now scrambling to try and right the ship (hence Legacy and Rebirth). My point is there are very few younger readers jumping on the comics bandwagon so I'm not concerned about what costumes they prefer on their statues. I prefer the classics. If this piece was in their classic costumes I would've seriously considered it. They aren't, so I won't. If there are fans out there that like this look, more power to them. My wallet is staying shut.
