Like how Sony revealed its new PS3 slim. In my opinion the fatter PS3 is far greater than its slimmer cousin due to the fact that Sony took out some stuff like the USB ports, no media card reader and removed the "install other OS" capability just so it could make it slimmer (I actually have a point to all this so trust me on this one, hehe!)
Now comes to my beloved toy collection. Hot Toys has started this whole DX crap where the figures they produce for this line are suppose to be better than its previously released Movie Masterpiece counterpart. I mean im all for improvement and I wouldn't mind getting it as long as it promises more that its predecessor. Take the Joker for instance. Yes i've preordered him guilty as charge but i PO'ed Joker because its like getting 2 figures in 1. All I need is a nude body and i get 2. Joker in his police disguise + accessories and his classic purple get-up + accessories and a new head. So yeah I think its worth my money.
But what about Batsy over here? An extra head sculpt with interchangible mouth pieces and a sticky bomb gun? Is that it? You expect me to cough out my hard earned cash for that? Ill just wait for some dude to sell it on Ebay thankyouverymuch. The most it'll cost me would probably be around 100 plus maybe 200.
This is ridiculous, too much even. And surprise surprise Hot Toys will be releasing yet another version of Ironman. Battle damaged? Shit I could just give mine to my neighbour's cat and i'll instantly get a battle damaged Ironman. I know as long as there is demand, they will forever be supplying and continue to milk the cow for as long as it can make them money.
But that's my take on the matter. So guys and gals, please leave your comments or thoughts. I'd love to hear what the rest of you think on the matter.
