Ah, thanks. Which version of RoboCop do you have, by the way?

I know that there's one based on the first movie, a battle damaged one, a RoboCop 3 figure, and then the video game ones.

I was thinking about picking up the one from the third movie since it's identical to the original movie's figure aside from a new paint job and extra accessories, and goes for way less. I'm not sure if I'll pick up any of Neca's video game figures based on movies, as the paint jobs look a bit odd to me. Maybe if they look better in person...

Oh, yeah, I used to have these RoboCop: The Series figures as a kid. I used to play with them a lot.

I have the first and third Robocop. Honestly yeah I'd just go with the Robocop 3 figure. The newer paint job on that one is nice and has more blue shading on it than the first, which was a flatter grey than I think it should've been. I haven't unboxed the third one but I know that it's functionally the same as the first.

I've been eyeing the video game version but I just can't quite pull the trigger on it. I never played the games and I'm not sure I need another neca Robo. I've seen the box in comes in though and it's really nice. It's an homage to the old video game box from that era.

Those old figures look cool. I wish there was an accurate police cruiser to scale with the neca figure.

Didn't find any of the Neca figures I wanted. Or any of the other stuff I was looking for today, figures and otherwise. I did end up getting the Disney Store exclusive Darth Vader Elite Premium figure, though, since it was on sale for 50% off. He came out to about $17.50 before tax. He's pretty awesome.

My younger brother got lucky and found a whole bunch of Marvel Legends figures he wanted, though.

I don't know which is which, but just based on looks alone, I think the one on the right is nicer. The zipper on the left is just ridiculous at that scale.

Oh right my bad. The one on the left is the Mezco. The right is the 3A.

I agree about the zipper size, it's definitely not to scale. I'm also leaning towards the 3A one but I prefer the height/bulk of the Mezco.

I've thought about getting that 3A figure before. But just never pulled the trigger. It just looks better. The clothes on the Mezco look off. Like a lot of cloth goods at this scale, they're too big. Plus that zipper is comically big.

Yeah I think this was one of Mezco's earliest one:12 figures so they hadn't gotten the outfit scaling quite right. That zipper...is an eyesore.

In this day and age is it risk cancelling​ any preorder? David would laugh to death if he found out someone cancelled a Valkyrie for example.

But I think it's just that there aren't as many things that interest me these days. Mechas are unfortunately on a decline and other than the SOC Megazord (which like Lik said is on AmiAmi) I don't have anything on preorder. SOC Mazinkaiser might change that, though.

especially if you fought and got in the 5 second pre-order window. why would you cancel it? =) probably better off looking yahoo japan actions and see the demand and sell it.

man. that ship might have possibly sailed... as Seven Sword was just announced and won't release till August so there's a small window. F91 it's been closed for months.
Outside of markups, there might be a slight chance a few places have cancelled pre-orders that may open up right around release day. so keep a look out as those go by within minutes.

Look at how improved the Superman & Batman are from the first Icons versions they released dating back to Wave 1:

It's like night and day!

I am interested in the Icons line, and it's very nice to see that some things such as scale are finally being addressed by figures in this set.

So far I only have a Harley Quinn and Batman figure from the line and while both are nice, Batman broke almost right out of the box and I have been hesitant to dive back in after that. If things were a bit cheaper I would probably jump on it. I like the Superman, Batman, and Wonder-Woman from the new set. Although Batman's face looks off. And as sacrilegious as it is to say this - I wish they had kept the New 52 costumes for this boxset. I want to see some reviews on Flash and Green Lantern to see how they compare to previous versions.

From what I heard the Icons line is planning to change focus a bit and continue more as 2 packs or sets rather then release individual figures, correct? Bummer if true.

hmm... it's tricky to predict. we won't know until release day which is in a few days, 3/31. it's really extreme. if it's not in demand (edit: low print, these are in demand but the print number is the issue), you should still see it avail at retailers pretty easy. if it's sold out on launch day the price will shoot up 100 bucks within an hour. hlj sometimes opens up cancelled pre-orders orders right before release so keep an eye out there.

EDIT: sometimes looking at auctions in Japan can give a hint of what the demand is:
