    I didn't mind it at all given the content which was in it.

    Plus you'd most likely get a Venom or Green Gobby item and in the upcoming Spider-Man you'll probably get a Vulture or a before/after Spider-Man theme.
    Don't get me wrong I love Spiderman, but having a box filled with just him in the same costume would've been a let down to me since I'm trying to collect merchandise for as many different characters I can. Also ya you were right about Super hero showdown( I didn't love the mini toys though TBH) it was probably as good as GotG2 box, but new movie hype bias.

    Well it was nice to get two strong Pops, though I have to say the GotGV2 Pop having individual bobble heads like that was absolutely sublime.

    Wonder Woman



    Got this a few weeks back, but no time like the present as they say.

    Apologies about the weird clicking below. For some crazy ass reason I can't remove some spoiler tags and I don't know why. It keeps trying to add spoiler tags between two pictures and it causes the rest to segregate. Skip the first Spoiler tag, there's nothing under it.




    The Box





    Here's the outside and inside. You might look at the outside and say, "Hey, Mak, you've shown us this one before! But if you look at the head it's modeled somewhat after Gal Gadot and just happens to be -really- similar to the Women of DC box. Interior art is all pretty good and original. Still doesn't say anything on the outside of the box and the box itself was a little on the small side.


    Badges

    A weird almost AmiComi eye patch and a neat little pin. Nothing too good. I wish the badge had a punch more color to it.


    Clothing

    Socks! Nothing else to say about it.


    Novelty

    A tiny Wonder Woman! I actually like it though I wish it was more than just someone standing there. Captain America came with a shield, I wish she did as well.


    So in an odd turn of events...

    TWO POPS!! Holy jeez!


    Secondary Toy
    First PoP: Doctor Maru


    I like the pose a lot. The eye lashes are a good touch as well, but I dislike how the goggle glass is the same color as the hood. I get its the hood beneath the glass but it would've been way cooler if it were just clear plastic there.


    Main Event

    Obviously Wonder Woman herself. Oddly doesn't have more going for it in comparison. It's bright, it's well detailed (and I especially like how the armband on the left arm works), and I love that lasso. But that's it. But it's a great piece no matter what and works well on the table.


    So that's it. All in all it's a passable box. The surprise secondary toy was a great surprise, but it felt like the box was just a little bland aside from it being a surprise. The main POP is great and looks good so I'd recommend it, but I wish there was another secondary toy like the Superhero Showdown box from Marvel and just a different item of clothing. DC missed the mark when they could have delivered a tiara. Still good stuff.

    Preview for next box if you dare:



    Also a blunder by my unhelpful helper:

    GET OFF THE TABLE!!!

    The socks are quite daring.

    So do you put the stuff arranged on display or back in the box and up the attic?

    I keep the POPS out and I store the rest back in a box (unless the secondary toy was cool enough to display like the Wonder Woman Invisible Jet and Mystique from Rock Candy).

    lol Truth be told I take a picture of every POP's backside because I really appreciate the detail they put into the backs. I have no clue why, but I do.

    Saw Pat's figures thread and remembered I have stuff I still need to put all up in here. And one day, ONE DAY, I will maybe possibly take pictures of the Strange box.



    Superhero Showdown

    Let's get into it, shall we?

    The box


    Not so bad, really. I wish if they were going for "stoic" Daredevil they'd make him grimace a little more, and if for "deranged" Bullseye that he'd look... more deranged I guess.


    Them badges


    So when I opened this box I had mixed feelings. The Hulk pin was pretty interesting but fell flat. This is just Hulk vs Red Hulk and it SHOULD have been Hulk vs Leader or Hulk vs Abomination, or even better? Hulk vs Banner. Internal showdowns are pretty interesting in comics as well. The patch is Iron Man vs Ultron and this is undoubtedly for the movies and this is where I break. I was really hoping that this box would just be for comics and this badge should've been Hank Pym vs Ultron or Iron Man vs Mandarin or Crimson Dynamo. Not bad, and I never wear them, so nothing lost I guess?


    The Comic


    So right off the bat. First thing I notice? There's actually a comic regarding a showdown! Holy crap! A comic that nearly has something to do with the theme. Granted it's not as on point, but whatever. At least this isn't a Wolverine cover on a Spider-Man comic or something. Second? That claymation looking cover! Love it. Knocked it out of the park as far as variants go.


    The shirt


    As per normal I'm just putting up a still of the shirt's promo because it's easier. This is a great shirt that looks even better in person. I'm just happy my girlfriend didn't know I ordered this one for me and she got NOTHING. HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!! But seriously, a very sharp shirt. Easily one of the best. It almost makes up for another shirt I failed to obtain.


    The secondary figures




    I like 'em. No way around this. They're cute. I love the little hands, the cocky Cap, the menacing Skull, and all the little details like the armband, the belts, the shoes, the wings, and maybe most importantly? Cap's original triangular pre-lawsuit threatened shield. These are much smaller than the Dorbz series as these are like finger size at best, and now I remember just why I had a picture of these things from overhead by the badges but I deleted it. They're about as wide as the Hulk pin from the top down.


    The Spotlight Part 1


    Unless you didn't look at the box you knew how this would end. If you didn't this would be a pleasant surprise. They could've gone with Gobby/Spidey or Xavier/Magneto Thor/Loki or just anybody. But Daredevil and Bullseye is so damned iconic as a grudge that it truly should be here as the big show.


    The Spotlight Part 2


    So what do you think? I sorta like it. I love how Bullseye has the sai stolen from Elektra and his playing card he could decapitate someone with. I do NOT like how the spade is printed so poorly on the card.


    The Spotlight Part 3


    Alright, a buncha angles for this one because you can't really capture this one without it. Love the little horns, I hate the wrist dagger things (but that's a problem I have carrying over from the comics, so it works here as a toy), love the dynamic pose. It's just an all around good Pop with a stand (which they ALL should have.) Otherwise this is a great little Pop. Colors and lines are great and it's just a lot of fun.


    The whole shebang


    Here we go. A sweet little grouping of the corners of their universe. Do I have a million other ideas they could have? Sure. But these were EXCELLENT choices and I gotta say "Wow."


    So, good box? For sure. Definitely worth the cash and every part of this was visually stunning. Well, maybe except for the one thing I sorta complained about. I didn't take a picture of the "next time" box, but if you look on the first post you'll see what it's supposed to be. Sorry this one took so long guys!

    There's no point after that epic sentinel on X-Men set. No point in life.

    Nothing wrong with incest whatsoever, so this concern that the normalization of homosexuality will cause it to become less stigmatized is completely unwarranted
