Arrowverse Crisis Crossover Prep

Welcome to Earth-2 Ep 04: Ryan and the Mole-man

Episode 4 of Ryan’s extended stay in the multiverse, and he and his co-hosts have a surprise lunch with a Mole-man running for political office.  They take a deep dive into race relations between mole-people and surface dwellers, and learn what hashtags are on Earth-2.  #NotAllMolemen

Will Ryan put his foot in his mouth?  Will the Mole-man spread fake news?  What are the important political platforms for this strange world?

Listen in, and perhaps those questions will be answered.

Somehow, in a major plot hole that will likely never be explained, Ryan can still receive email on Earth-2, so send him one at Earth2@heroespodcasts.com!  He might even read it in the next episode.  Don’t like Ryan?  We don’t blame you!  Simply address it to another person on the show and we will make sure it gets to them.

Welcome to Earth-2 Ep 04: Ryan and the Mole-man

Welcome to Earth-2 Ep 03: Ryan and the Fanboy

Episode 3 of Ryan’s vacation to an alternate reality, and he is trying to make friends.  Not only that, but he interviews the very first fan of the show, who happens to be a wanna-be superhero with a mechanical exosuit.  You may be thinking to yourself “Wait, this show has a fan?”, and that is a totally fair thought.  However, YOU ARE HERE TOO, READING THIS ARTICLE.  I hate to break it to you, but you may be a fan too. Either way, this week, I got to meet someone who calls himself The Construct.

Will he finally get out of jail?  Did he survive his appointment with Dr. Stonefist?  Isn’t The Construct just a Green Lantern rip-off with a mech-suit?

Listen in, and perhaps those questions will be answered.

Somehow, in a major plot hole that will likely never be explained, Ryan can still receive email on Earth-2, so send him one at Earth2@heroespodcasts.com!  He might even read it in the next episode.  Don’t like Ryan?  We don’t blame you!  Simply address it to another person on the show and we will make sure it gets to them.

Welcome to Earth-2 Ep 03: Ryan and the Fanboy

Welcome to Earth-2 Ep 02: Ryan and the Redtape

Episode 2 of Ryan’s unsupervised trip to a different Earth, in which he tries to prove the multiverse theory is, in fact, fact.  He does this by, stick with me here, recording a podcast and interviewing a lady from HR.  He is lucky that he is handsome, or we wouldn’t put up with his shit anymore.

Will he find out why he is in jail?  Who the heck is Dr. Stonefist?  Will Toby ever win Michael Scott’s affection? Did he fill out the correct HR forms?

Listen in, and perhaps those questions will be answered.

Somehow, in a major plot hole that will likely never be explained, Ryan can still receive email on Earth-2, so send him one at Earth2@heroespodcasts.com!  He might even read it in the next episode.  Don’t like Ryan?  We don’t blame you!  Simply address it to another person on the show and we will make sure it gets to them.

SH S1E16: The Flash – State of the Series

It’s not a doll, it’s a ACTION FIGURE! Part 2 – Mattel Multiverse 12″ Armored Batman Review

This article is going to look very familiar, because if you are a frequent reader,Ii reviewed the 6″ version of this figure not long ago.  You can find that article here.  This review is for the 12″ Mattel Armored Batman action figure in the Multiverse line.

I haven’t spotted this figure in a store and instead, purchased this one on Amazon.com here.  To begin, the packaging is very similar to the 6″, except in a larger scale, that will be a common theme for this review.

Multiverse Armored Batman Likeness

Judging by the likenesses shown on the back of the package, this figure has the best likeness of all of the 12″ figures.  Both Superman and Wonder Woman look nothing like their movie counterparts based on these photos.  Even this Batman has very large lips, to the point of almost looking cartoony.

Batman likeness

The interior packaging is nearly identical to the 6″.

IMG_20160105_164606

Out of packaging

When you get the figure out of the packaging, it is a bit disappointing for the scale and price.  The figure appears to have been sculpted at a 6″ scale and blown up to a 12″.  This results in the details that look good on the 6″ looking blown out of proportion or overly large on the 12″.  The one bonus on this figure has over the 6″ is an actual fabric cape, though it lays flat and lacks the cool creases the 6″  version has sculpted in.  The paint is very similar to the 6″, and because of the increased scale, the lack of detailing around all the battle damage is even more obvious here.

Bat butt

He comes with no accessories, and that is disappointing.  What is Batman without his cool toys?  A simple batarang would have given him something cool to pose with.

This figure has 10 points of articulation, versus 20 on the 6″.  The most noticeable change is the lack of articulated ankles, which makes this figure very difficult to pose in any position other than a boring straight up and down standing position.  The hips and shoulders have a decent range of movement.

Batman is more flexible than I ever imagined.

Scale comparison

IMG_20160105_165217

Scale comparison version 2

Overall, i think that you get a better figure if you buy the 6″ version.  I’d give this figure 4/10 cans of shark repellent, or 2/5 spaceships.

The Grid Rating Saucer 2.5
