    Masterverse exclusive Scare Glow same as retail?

    Not sure if this was discussed here but it appears to me exclusive Scare Glow and retail Scare Glow could be identical except for the box. What do you think?

    I think it was Pixel Dan that said the Bones look less green on the retail one

    You have to look at the figure out on display. Absolutely not identical. Retail: Non glow paint on the body, solid color for the glaive, cape is not poseable, and appears sword accessory? Definitely needed it’s own thread when it’s been discussed in 2 others

    Exclusive: Greenish head and green bones, plus special power sword.
    Regular: Yellowish (probably GITD) head and yellow bones, no power sword.

    I definitely like the look of the standard version better.

    I like the shades of purple used for the shirt, bracers, belt, and boots a lot better on the exclusive. But I prefer the bone coloring on the regular release.

    Exactly. I like the green when he glows but the bone color when he doesn't.

    I think the idea of the exclusive one is that he's perpetually glowing, hence why it doesn't also gitd. It wasn't mentioned specifically at the panel, where they just said the head will also glow, but I'm still hoping that the skeleton pattern was done with gitd paint.

    Probably NECA stands. J/K, that wouldn't make sense that a company the size of Mattel would need to leverage the competitions figure stands... but for the record NECA does make excellent clear plastic stands for 6"-7" figures. I swear by them.
    Harken the coming of Dragstor!!

    To me, that wired cape is so important on this figure if you are posing it. It's so instrumental to capturing Scare Glow's look in Revelation.

    Oh, wow. I didnít know about the wired cape! I received my shipping notice, but itís still just label created.

    I actually like the green version better, Iíll get the regular edition as well. I wished the regular version looked more bone color. But either way, hard to say no to a scareglow.

    I like them both too, but if you're seeking show accurate, green is definitely thee selection to make.

    I just got the shipping notice as well. I love just about any figure that glows in the dark. I will be buying the regular version also.

    100% leave that one in the box and buy a retail one if you need as well IMO

    In my opinion, the regular retail version of Scareglow without the glow-in-the-dark feature makes it less special. Besides that, the yellow color makes no sense to me. For added measure, Mattel just used a standard cape. Then there's the added insult of not getting the power sword with the figure.

    Put that all together and it's an easy pass for me. Since Mattel Creations screwed me out of getting the exclusive version, I have no incentive to support this line.

    Adding that "power sword" was an insult to previous Power Swords. Scare Glow was probably not the first choice I'd have gone with if they were wanting to include that as an accessory. Roboto or whoever the hell created it in that flash in the pan moment would have been a better choice.
    That sword is about as ugly and useless as an oversized projectile accessory from a 200X figure...

    The good thing is there's no ties holding Scare Glow down. You can essentially just pop him out and later push him back in.



    But yeah, I'm thinking I need one to forever stay inside the Book of Scare Glow, and the book can stay on the shelf for future magical incantations.

    Yeah, I don't understand the logic of it either.

    I was thinking just perhaps we'll see Scare Glow in the second half of Revelation in this alternate look? Maybe he's scared of Orko and called "Scared Glow" now... because he's gone and turned yellow? Get it?

    Okay, I'll show myself out.

    Am I the only one who thinks it's possible the "yellow" paint is glow in the dark paint? I know it wasn't specifically mentioned during the panel, but it feels at least somewhat plausible. The exclusive Scareglow was clearly painted to invoke that he's actively glowing, yet didn't glow besides his head. I'd think maybe the retail will?
