hope we get her to go with him
Yeah, so aside from this war of words, can anyone please answer my question... is this actually a MOTUC buck (i.e., shared parts) or does it just look like one? Thanks.
A comic book shop owner (or is it former) that looks down his nose at the Great Unwashed because we don't share his taste?
Re: The Dark Knight Returns.... I'm right. And since this wonderful country allows freedoms of all kinds, you're free to be just as wrong as you please.
The 4H confirmed on Twitter that the Dark Knight Returns Batman does re-use some MOTUC parts: http://www.itsalltrue.net/?p=20216
Thats cool and all...I just never really cared about the whole scale thing...I still don't.
Batman does not live in the MOTUC Universe.
However, I think it's neat that he is using some shared parts! For DKR & MOTUC fans this should be awesome news...why does it matter what you think about Frank Miller for. I would think the only disagrement would be about wether or not the actual toy is cool or not...
I think people are forgetting that Dennis O'Neil and Neal Adams had already started putting Batman to his more darker roots in the 70s. The created Ra's al Ghul, and turned the Joker back into a homicidial maniac. They are the ones who also did similar with Green Lantern and Green Arrow, with Speedy becoming a heroin addict.
While Dark Knight Returns is influential on many comic writers, and the super hero medium it doesn't live in a bubble that goes Adam West campy Batman then Dark Knight Rises twenty years later.
Anyone? ... seriously, anyone? *Sigh*
If they used parts of the buck I would imagine it to be in scale with MOTUC.
Batman is awesome. Love the head sculpt and new details on the costume. Superman is kind of the opposite. Don't like the design, only got him because Mattel is going to complete the new team and Supes should not be missing. Red Robin I've wanted forever. He's too big to work for Tim, but just right for a stand in for Jason.
Wow Superman's face is hideous!! What is up with the wacky eyes? First Spikor, then Donatello, and now Superman. Batman looks great.
Yay for the thread being unlocked! :hmlol:
But yes, the 4H said on Twitter that he does reuse some MOTU parts (mostly legs & arms), so he should be particularly compatible.
Alan Moore did more for Batman than Frank Miller did. Plus, Miller revealed to the world he's little more than a selfish, spoiled brat who thinks poor people are lazy, so I couldn't care about him or his overrated comics.

Well most people would agree that Frank Miller today isn't the same person he was 26 years ago. Some might say he's lost his mind. But that's just what they're saying on the streets.:skwink:
Alan Moore's Killing Joke is a great comic and with establishing a new more complex background for the Joker and crippling Barbara Gordon it had probably a larger influence on Batmans continuity then the TDKR. When it comes to the overall impact on comic industry I would say TDKR is a little bit ahead of the Killing Joke. But that is just my opinion.
I do not like Frank Millers personal views on politics and society either but that can probably be said about a lot of artists/directors/writers/actors/musicians whose work I enjoy. I try to judge the work regardless of personal feelings for its creator whenever possible.
Now that it's been clarified that they can use MOTUC bits for DCUC, I can't understand why they wouldn't have done so for Atrocitus. He seems like the perfect candidate!
Maybe this figure is meant to be Atkins Diet Power Atrocitus. :sklol:
MOTUC AND BATMAN BUCK
since Motuc buck has been used for a Batman figure, can other series buck be used for slimmer character like Mantenna, 200x adam, 200x Mer-Man, Lizard Man, Modulok and all those characters who are actually smaller the standard body in order to cut the costs and focus the resource to the expensive sculpting costs and ?
I actually checked with the DC team. This is not a Batman fig using the MOTU buck. It is in "scale" to MOTUC (in order to create that unique one time Dark Knight Returns look) but the only MOTUC part it uses is the shoulders. All other parts are brand new.
We were happy to loan the use of the shoulders as a one time help for the DC team, but as always, MOTU classics parts will only be used on MOTUC toys.
