Some new additions to the family:
This Two Face came from the DC Superheroes line back in 2007. As you would assume, they stopped releasing this figure and instead started releasing the Silver Age Two Face which looks exactly like this but the paint job is different and he doesn’t come with a tommy gun. You have no idea how much I HATE that Two Face!! First of all the color of his suit makes him look like a carnival freak and second the action figure was actually made with less detail, like for example the Two Face in the picture above has his hand all scarred up and deformed like his face whereas the silver age one his hands are just painted the same color as his deformed face but doesn’t show any scarring. To top it all off, he doesn’t come with a tommy gun and that’s pretty dumb if you ask me.
I’m one step closer in getting every member of the Justice League and to show that Livin’ Large doesn’t discriminate, I even got some superheroines. I chose to get Mary Marvel in the white outfit rather than the Captain Marvel colors just to add a little variety to the figures. In my opinion, I think they should’ve just packaged Big Barda with an alternate head without the helmet on instead of just releasing it as a chase figure and there’s no excuse to that blunder because later on they released Hawkman pictured in these photos with an alternate head without the hawk mask. I also chose to go with the Jaime Reyes Blue Beetle because I wanted to get some teenage heroes not just adult ones. Like I said before the Justice League isn’t the only team I want to get so having Blue Beetle and Hawkman gets me closer to completing other teams. By the way, Jaime Reyes is one of the lead characters in Young Justice: Invasion so check that out.
Sinestro Fans can finally rest because Mattel rereleased the figure and cleaned up their mistakes. The paint job looks smoother and he doesn’t look intimidated when you stand him next to Hal Jordan. The Bizarro that I got is actually from the DC Superheroes line just like Two Face but Bizarro was easier to find and was way cheaper than what I had to pay and put up with with the Two Face figure. Matter of fact the most expensive figure out of the ones in the pictures is Two Face, which cost me a little under $100 and was in used but good condition. I always liked getting the heroes and their polar opposites like Batman and Joker, Superman and Lex Luthor and now I can add Flash and Reverse Flash (or Zoom, whatever you want to call him) to that list. I just like the detail Mattel put in Reverse Flash’s face making him look like an older, angrier Barry Allen. That’s about it for action figures but I will post some photos of any new ones I get in the near future. One thing’s for sure though, whether they’re heroes or villains, you gotta love’em! This is Livin’ Large and you’ve been Largely Livin’
