Ok, I have to tap the brakes on my whole "I'm in"....
I abhore painted "flesh" on human characters almost as much as I loathe PT figures.
I realize the pic we have seen is a hand painted clearly a prototype (paint chips near collar and shoulder joint and pins visible in legs), so we will see.
If these come out with painted heads instead of cast, I will look at them like I do so many other 6in figures, and that is just glance at them, pick them up and wish they were better and return them to the shelf. A modern day "catch and release" kind of deal.
And to clairfy my earlier post, I was not implying that DD was talking down to us, it must have been the mood I was in when I read it. The numerous times that staff here at JD have interacted with him at Toy Fair or GI JOe Conventions he was as excited by the stuff as we were and even gave Rob some exclusive photo shots before pulling an item off the display. I assume the fanboy rants are on otheR sites?
