here and Red Robin here. Her reviews are really good and usually I don't like reviewing stuff she's already done (feels redundant) but then I took too many pictures sooooooo here I am!
Starting with the boxes:
Red Hood action figure came in. Especially this one. It has a window where you can see the figure in the front, the name of whatever comic this particular character is from and the name of the character its self. The back has a short character history plus pictures of all the other action figures for this particular comic. Here we have Arsenal, Starfire and Red Hood.
Here is a close up of the picture of Roy's face on the back:
The two sides of the box are pretty cool too. One side has a nice picture of the action figure.
Tim's is very similar:
These two are totally on my list:
Here is Tim's close up:
The sides of his box have a picture of the action figure.
And now we're going to switch it up and start with Tim.
Both of these figures are very easy to get out of their packaging.
Tim's plastic trays are a little more involved than Roy's but still very easy to remove things from. He has his wings/cape in one tray and then he's in the other.
Here is Tim without his cape:
Starting with his head, Tim has some FAB hair:
Shiny Dick's! It's all very well sculpted and I have no paint defects there.
His face is equally well painted:
Most of my paint defects are on the golden straps on his costume. You can see one near his shoulder on the left side of this picture:
I was trying to get a better picture of that here:
His back is less detailed:
His arms are very detailed and different! His left arm has the Red Robin symbol on his shoulder:
If you read my post on my Red Hood figure you will probably remember that I wasn't happy with the articulation. Red Hood had a LOT of stiff joints and some I couldn't even get to work at all. I didn't have this problem at all with Tim. All of his joints worked perfectly straight out of the box. However:
Moving on to the lower half, Tim's legs are a little less detailed than his torso but still very nice. He has raised patches on his knees:
Here is a close up of some details:
The boy does have like the ugliest shoes EVER though:
All of the action figures I've gotten in this line so far have come with some kind of accessory. Tim's is his cape/wing thing:
And here is the inside:
They do have some cool details. Here is a vent and what looks like could be articulation......but isn't!
The inside is less detailed, though on the edges you can still see rivets.
The "feathers" are nicely molded.
Here is Timmy in his whole getup:
As far as posing with them on goes he can't do a ton.
I really do like how they look from the back:
And then I goofed around with him for a bit. Here Timmy is doing his best zombie impression:
And then he showed me how he would strangle Roy if only he was out of his box!
Let's get Roy out of his box. Here he is still in his plastic tray with his accessories:
Roy's box was super rattly when I got it. Didn't see anything loose in there, couldn't figure out why it was so noisy. And then I opened the box, pulled him out and found these:
Anyway, here is Roy out of his box:
Roy's costume is sleeveless and just as detailed as Timmy's. There are lots of raised parts when we're changing "layers" as well as multiple straps.
This is probably not going to be the most popular thing I've ever said, BUT one of my very favorite New 52 Roy things is that he always wears a baseball cap. I know, people probably hate it, but I find it really endearing. With that being said...here is his hat:
And yes it is articulated! My favorite bit of articulation EVER!
Here is a close up of his chest:
Going back the the straps I was talking about earlier, here are some better pictures:
He's even got straps that go under his arms:
Here you can see the rib straps a little better:
All of these straps attach to his quiver:
Now to my favorite part of his paint job! His tattoos:
Roy has two different hand molds:
Both gloves have lacing up his forearms and shiny backs:
Moving on from his upper body, let's talk about the lower half! I've already talked about his belt and pouches a few times but here are some more pictures:
Roy also has a hip quiver:
Here is the side of his wrinkly pant leg:
I LOVE his boots!
And a knee cap thingy that looks like it could break some faces:
Roy comes with a bow and one arrow:
It has a few nice details:
Here is the arrow:
This is the only way I could get him to hold it:
Here are a few more action poses:
The bow actually makes for a pretty decent prop!
:Like I said earlier these figures can have some really stiff joints. In fact poor Traci broke her Arsenal trying to get one of his arms to move. Luckily my Arsenal's joints worked fine out of the box and with a LOT of gentle wiggling I got my Red Hood's to work too!
And pull off some better poses:
Also, just a little nit picky thing, but Timmy! They made you too tall:
Here are all of my DC Collectables action figures:
I hope you guys enjoyed this very long and very over due post! I'm going to try and get one more out before July is over but my brother is visiting next week and I'm not sure how much computer time I'll have. If I don't make it I'll see you in August! Till then!
