Star Wars Black Series 1
If the Dark Knight Returns Batman had ML articulation and a different cape, it would hands down be my favorite. My favorite would be between DKR Batman, Play Arts Joker, MS The Wolverine & Iron Man Mark 42 Battle Damaged. Star Wars Black was my favorite line with Watchmen as second. 2014 looks good for all of these lines except DCUC. At least Mattel is releasing the announced figures as day of sales on their website and Doomsday at SDCC in 2014.
ML- Distribution issues and some heavy reuse of bodies/parts that nobody asked them to reuse. I'd pick Protector if nothing more than for a bland look and wasted character slot and Luke Cage looks oddly proportioned in pics. I don't own Cage yet.
MS-Thor Jane Foster. Who wanted this? There aren't any other characters worth picking in the Thor Movieverse? Storm for limited articulation and War Machine if only because he looks so bland. Also, I'd like to see them reissue the better figures from their previous work. Nobody Wanted Blue Stealth Extremis Iron Man or that ugly Disney Store Thor again.
DCUC- Died......I could also complain about the lack of accessories with Watchmen figures, lagging behind in the articulation department, killing a new line every four months or so, but it's over now. Silk Spectre was a letdwon for me. Their worst figure was easily Batman Unlimited Beware The Bat. That figure is pure crap.
Play Arts- Prices increased, quality control issues persist and not always using the most up to date joints they have available for their figures.
Star Wars Black- The wait for Series 2
