Like I said in the other thread this is inspired by Jumbo's. If you weren't around at that time or been exposed to the Jumbo craze when it was new you will never be able to understand just how popular this line was. Hell I remember being in India in the early 80's and seeing a kid with a Jumbo Gaiking and being so jealous lol.
They might look good on jumbos but on the current DC line they look off... its like the great mazinger XX weapon? What is it... fire extinguisher? The decent one is mazinger Z... won’t spend my money on this rather use it on new figures ... To each their own I am sure people will buy this based on nostalgia...
They are a throw back to the Jumbo Machinder / Shogun Warrior weapons. Super nostaglic pieces but also as I can see not at all connected to younger collectors. They're missing their roller skates for the full effect.

This is a much appreciated shout out to older collectors that grew up with this stuff. It harkens back to the Popy days when they used to have crazy gimmicks that didn't necessarily make sense, but were lots of fun. Unfortunately, it's doubtful that any of these weapons will actually fire anything or function like the vintage stuff. Probably just another accessory people can use to pose, take pictures and share on instabook and facegram. Kinda sad actually if thats the case.
mojacko: mighty quie over here...not much discussions going on.

S_Gokin: i really dont recommend it (unless you found it dirt cheap) both Arkham asylum and Arkham city are bad, story wise and gameplay, didnt try Arkham knight yet, but im not sure i will, if they kept all of those annoying things from the early games

mojacko: think its a hype thing i dont see it will last through the ages its like a re invention of the head knockers thing.
