    Great reviews Doc! Just love the humor. I just couldn’t take the plunge this year. Starman, Atrocitus, Rocket Red, and Constantine are the main reasons why beyond the high cost. I don’t like buying things blind. I have zero interest in Starman or Constantine. The scale of Rocket Red and Atrocitus were a major disappointment. I did cave and get Atrocitus from China after he sold out on Matty. After all, he can’t hold his lantern in either fist. But man is he small. Yeah the Rocket Red I wanted was in the JLI. This one isn’t even close. Funny, I thought he was wearing a giant diaper.

    Great review Doc. I only wanted Jay and Atrocitus but now I can cross Atrocitus off my list. If I start to get tempted to pick him up, I’ll just look at the out of scale Sinestro, Doomsday and Darkseid figures I have and that should stop me. The pendulum has swung back to Marvel for now, but I think Mattel will get it back together eventually.

    Great review as always Doc, Love the honesty, and the straight forwardness approach you take.
    I’m not really impressed with anything so far except Metron and flash which I will pick up down the road. 2013′s lineup is what I’m really looking forward to and want everything offered.
    Keep up the great reviews!
