First photo of the Marvel figs, looks like they're still in early early prototype.

Even if they are peach, it's not like we can't swap out their heads and hands, right?

Ah fuck. That's also what I hated about those Indiana Jones torso's that they always still had that bit of peach skin showing.

Ew. Yuck.

All three of these are hideous. "New from Lego! Bobble Head Iron Man! Ugly Green Brick Hulk! And Capatain America, complete with Awkard Sheild (tm) and Stud Head (tm)!"

That said, the DC ones look nice. Thor and Wolverine look quite nice as well. But those three? Ew. Maybe put a helmet on Cap or something. Better yet, could just order one from BrickForge. Okay, that's one fixed! I stand by my opinion on Iron Man and Hulk, though. I guess the huge head is so they can squeeze in a Stark head underneath, but still...

That said, can't be worse than the Mega Bloks Marvel sets, right?

Carry on like Bonn-o-Tron.

Timedude, quit yer bitchin'. They're in the early prototype stages. Who knows? We may get a helmet for Cap, some poseability for Hulk, and possibly a full suit of armor for Iron Man!

Anyway, those DC figs look nice too.

1. No helmet for Cap. He'd look even more stupid.
2. Iron Man needs body armor piece.
3. I think the idea for Hulk is good, but I would like it if his head were removable.

Thor's hammer will come in handy, that's for certain.

Okay, okay. I'll withhold further judgement until they're in their finalized mass consumption form.

They look like they are built just like Hero Factory sets (were the Ben 10 sets built that way too?). Not bad. I like the Green Lantern one.
