After all these Metal Batman versions that are dropping, The Mortal Kombat Spawn is getting harder to resist..
That Spawn is a really good figure. Take it out of the box and you'd never know it's an MK figure.
Yeah, the armored figures were definitely his pet projects. Those were his proving ground. I know there was a lot of push back and forth early on and lately they have given him more freedom. It's to be expected. I do know the mandate of "make current comic related stuff" is what lead to the Dark Knights Metal figures. The mandate was broad enough that he could make figures that interested him and still be delivering what they wanted which is a Bat heavy line based on current comic series. It's just funny that the complaints about the line being Bat-heavy are warranted but not entirely his fault.
The Bat-heavy complaint is definitely warranted, but I never see them sticking around for too long, so I think even still, he's reaching new collectors, so I don't know if he's got much reason to change it up too much.
