Interrobangs cannot suffice to express my combined confusion and outrage.
The latest DC Heroclix product is the "DC Giants set", consisting of larger-than-normal figures of Giganta, Validus, Rita Farr, Chemo, Colossal Boy, Alloy (a Metal Men construct that appeared in Kingdom Come), and Asim-Smasher.
Oh, sorry; I meant to say "Atom-Smasher".
My set arrived the other day, and they're purdier 'n a ploughed field on a Sunday!
Lovely Rita, in her kicky lilac go-gos and ginchy gloves, with her patented Elasti-Girl pose that says, "Admire my biceps all you want, but look up my mini and I'll squash you like a bug."
Chemo is noxiously sexy, and (despite his opaque appearance below) is all clear green plastic, except for his beady red eyes. When I played him against Devon's JSA team, and I had him repeatedly spit toxic waste into Atom-Smasher's face. I didn't win, but I didn't care, either.
I was also able to reproduce the hair-pulling battle between Rita Farr and Giganta in IC#7. Who says gay people don't love a good catfight? Mee - oooW!
"And bigger than Giganta! Everbody tries, but can't-a..."
So, anyway, the HCRealms people are having a poll to see which of the Giant figures people like the most. And... and.. that murderer is winning.
That's obscene: it's VALIDUS who should be winning. He's got a see-through brainplate, shoulderhoses (even though you can't see that on the linked photo), and a range of 8.
Okay. I'm ... just going to pretend that on "New Earth", that whole dictator-squishing thing never happened, I guess...
