Paint looks a bit better indeed, and I like the slightly thinner Iron Spider legs, but I already have and really like my Figuarts version, and this is still a Mafex so easy pass.

Is Mafex is a little bit taller compared to Figuarts, correct?

Yup, I think most of their stuff is about a head above Figuarts figures, not much, but kind of noticeable at 6" from what I've seen in most reviews. D Amazing seems to buy just about everything 1/12 or 6", I'd check some of his reviews out, he also always compares Mafex and Figuarts when both take a crack at a character. The guy also gets stuff abnormally quickly, I DHL all my stuff from HLJ now, but he seems to get figures a day or so after their Japanese release.

Mafex is in scale with Marvel Legends.

Dude, D Amazing and Boog both get their stuff, like, the next day.  Sometimes they'll have their reviews up before mine has even shipped.

Is D Amazing in Japan? I always wondered how he get his stuff so fast. My other idea was time travel. :p

I have the Iron Spider and Eva unit 1 on pre-order. Very excited to see Mafex have the Eva license considering Revoltech is really the only company putting out Eva figures. These will be my first Mafex figures, I hope they don't have any issues. I have watch some reviews and it seems there quality have improved with each release.

He lives in New York.  I suspect both D and Boog know some insiders who hook them up early.

Mafex Venom, Evil Gwenpool (don’t care), and a comic book version of Deadpool.

I feel like Mafex Venom is a bigger deal than is being made.

Just received the MAFEX Astro Boy. I really dig him. The design is good, but the scale is screwy in comparison to the others in the line. The odd thing is that there are so many accessory pieces that you could almost make a complete second figure from them. I can honestly say I have never seen a figure of Astro that includes the butt guns.

The butt guns?  You're kidding.

I like the Astro Boy figure. Hope they will release Uran or Atlas sometime in the future. But I doubt they do an 80's Atlas since they made Astro Boy so big, I will be happy with the 00's Atlas design.

 

Nice Batcave pic, @tekering. ;)

Thanks, Noel.  I'm still trying to find the optimum lighting conditions.

The Batcave diorama is mostly repurposed parts from the TMNT "Secret Sewer Lair" playset, with some Ubiquitous extensions and other miscellaneous accessories... oh, and a repainted DST Alfred.

Pics of Mafex Venom are up now.  Looks like it’s based in the Macfarlane first appearance.

Nice Robocop pics.

I’m going to pay for John Wick sometime next week.  Can’t wait to get that figure.
