Hawhawahw!!!! Jesus Christ Superstore rocks!

And I agree with you on the action figures versus statues issue. Give me mad articuation and tons of accessories. Those are the figures that get opened and played with. Statue-like figures stay in the box.

On another message board, we tried guessing what figures they customized for these. Obviously, Allah's a no brainer...but what about the others?


God looks like a Star Wars figure, but in all honesty I think that they've had them specially moulded - they lack too much detail to be "proper" toys...

I want a Constantine action figure. I assume they're not widely available, eh?


I have 2. One opened to fiddle with while I'm on the computer (alongside my Jack Knight and Spider J toys) and one for posterity.

Actually, take a closer look at God (heh heh...): it's a 1995 Power of the Force Luke Skywalker (when they made them all muscled like He-Man) with an Obi-Wan Kenobi head and some sculpty stuff for the flowy beard y locks. In my ever so humble opinion, mind you... icon_wink.gif

I read on the Spawn.com boards that the figs will be in a 6" size. many folks are dissapointed because they wanted them bigger or in-scale to the other figures in their collection. I for one am a fan of the smaller size as their easier to store.

How about that box set, huh? Can't wait to see what that looks like.

I like the fact that they are going for different type dragons, though I'm specifically hoping for a Vermithrax Pejorative rip off... maybe the fire dragon will be one.

Rule #1 to posting on this forum - don't take anything Rogan says personally, or seriously for that matter!
- John McMahon, Forum High Priest and "The Green Mountain Boy"

Anyway, this is a wonderful series, and I'm eternally in Rogan's debt for bringing it to my attention.

I suddenly had a late night thought: which comic book characters would you like to see as action figures? we've got Constantine, Preacher and Sandman, but are there any other Vertigo characters you'd want? I'd love a Lucifer figure and a set of Fables Snow White and Bigby Wolf (both human and Wolf shapes, really) figures. I'm sure there would be some takers for an Agent Graves, Lono and Dizzy series from 100 Bullets...

I really want a bad ass Judge Dredd figure with good articulation, sculpt and paint apps, 10" tall and lots of accessories. I think Mezco, makers of the excellent Hellboy figures, would be perfect for this.

I'd also like a super articulated Batman figure. Something along the lines of Marvel Legends or the SPiderman stuff. 30 plus points and tons of acessories. nevermind a diorama base, give me accessories. And of course, who would he be without a similar Joker figure?

And sethos, could you imagine a Nexus figure?
