When I saw the Photo on Facebook of a Guy holding Penguin and Catwoman I inquired about shipping. They told me it has in fact shipped and and told me it would be arriving to me tomorrow they gave me a shipping number and indeed Fed Ex has me scheduled for tomorrow delivery! Can't Wait.

Don't know if it was pointed out, but on the Facebook photo, Penguin's gloves are the correct white.

I'm wondering if I should order a Catwoman figure; on the one hand, I don't want to spend upward of $30.00 for a figure that will fall apart in the package, and on the other hand, I want to see if their female figure has improved.

On the THIRD hand, if the figure is a piece of dreck, I can always replace it with the new female body that Doc is putting out next year for very little money.

If anyone else gets the Catwoman figure, let me know how it holds up, both good and bad. That way I will know what I should do.

Will take better photos later just wanted to get them out there... One if the Catwoman suits looks very baggy and her feet are pointed in. The Penguin looks the best With Master Greyson a close second... To date IMO The Joker and Penguin have been their 2 best figures. Being I'm posting from my phone the photos will show up upside down don't know why it happens but for now here you go...

not much better. I suspect, if stores differential price these, that Alfred will be the most $$$, so it's a good chance that If I just Stalk Amazon.com I'll get her for a more fair price.

My Penguin arrived this morning. I was happy to see his white hands but he still doesn't look as chubby as I remember him being but that could just be me and my memory.
I'm happy with the purchase.
I never cared for the Mego female figures when I was a kid so I didn't order the Catwoman.
I thought about getting Bruce & Dick but I think I'm going to wait until they do the Adam West & Burt Ward versions.

You asked where you could get them, not for the best price. Trying to be helpful. Good luck with Amazon.

Thank-you for helping. I guess I should have asked "For $25 free shipping" or hoped someone would find a better deal than I could.
I didn't think you would take it wrong, I was just giving an update on each site for the price total.
I mean, I've paid $38 several months this last year for a single He-Man figure from Matty...but that wasn't by choice.

I def want to order the Penguin and Catwoman. Was going to order just those two but shipping for them is over $12 for just two figures. Seems pricey.

I don't love Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson. They are very good versions of them. Just not yet sure about them yet. Would have preferred more superheroes or other bad guys. Although because they are sticking to Batman universe...there are not many heroes to pull from. Just Batman, Robin and Batgirl.

I think they did a really good job on the Greyson IMO... He almost looks as good as my original.

Still waiting on shipping. I guess the donkey from Florida to Oregon got lost. Hopefully today. I really wish they gave the tracking information with the shipping notice instead of making you ask them for it.

With the impending white out here in the Bronx, I finally got a chance to sit down and strategically open all 4 of wave 1 and all 4 of wave 2 Figures without clipping off the FTC zip tie, took some group shots and some individual shots all with their Original counterparts next to them to compare. Wil post pics soon.

Guys I should have posted this sooner. To those of you who would like to keep the FTC zip ties intact and not have to cut them to open the packages I used this. From target $4.
Just slip the flat piece under the little flap that catches to the teeth lift and slide the plastic out of the hole

I guess but judging by this, FTC made the wrong call on the method of "freshness seal." Maybe they would be more secure with like, one of those hologram type seals at the top? FTC logo seal? I'll be honest, I really don't care much about this aspect, I just want the company to keep producing WGSH figures, both in repro and new form. I plan to buy them all.

Got my set of 4 figures today. Overall, I have to say I think they pretty much nailed it. Dick Grayson is really nicely done. Wasn't expecting actual working button holes on his jacket. Nice detail FTC! Bruce looks great as well. I will say the Penguin does look a bit slimmer than my original one but really nice nonetheless. Catwoman is nicely done as well. Suit is a bit baggier but the facepaint is really really nice! And the boots are very high quality. Bring on the next waves!

...I will say the Penguin does look a bit slimmer than my original one...

Based on photos, my guess is FTC has reproduced the Grandpa Walton "tall-fat" torso, and will use it for Boss Hogg as well.

Weird, since (India-era) CTVT had reproduced the standard fat torso.

I stood my original next to the FTC one and the original is definitely shorter. Not by much but there is a definite difference.

MIB41
Jan 4, '14, 8:10 AM
Thanks for those comparison shots. That really makes the case for how close these figures are to the originals. But at the same time, there are enough subtle differences to distinguish one from the other. The Riddler and Joker are just about dead on. But the material used on the outfits are different from the originals. Otherwise I would have a hard time telling the difference at all. Very good work.

thanks for the pics - they do look really nice and for those who've never been able to afford minty-megos, these will do quite nicely for a collection display.

I've not jumped - the bodies I got with my Wave 1 spooked me too much to drop $24.99 + Shipping on them.....make em $19.99 for a mass-produced item and then I can swap the body without so much buyers remorse.

Yes they are. They came both buttoned I opend the bottom button on Grayson to make it look more like the original

The common trait with all the figures, are FTC seem to be "longer" at certain parts. For example, Batman's head has more of a length look compared to the original's width. Same with Robin and Riddler.

That would also account for Penguin's torso. It's the difference in manufacturing today and 40 years ago. Maybe the rubber.

i also received my two sets the other day .fantastic!!.I like bruce & dicks outfits ,Bruces head is smaller then dicks ,but the bruce head is slightly larger
then doc megos ,which makes it look better ,Penguin is great ,hes got the kiss shoulder idea,so you can move his arms like he has wings ,Catwomen looks
very good ,although they should have put tape around her hair (like mego did) to control it .the female body is not as good as mego but its the
best i have seen to date,poses very well .i think Figures toy company did a very nice job on these ,cant wait for series 3.

Yes she does! It is routed behind one of her legs so you cant really see it when packaged inside the clamshell, but is there. These figures are all great reproduction of the originals!

Still can't get past Dick's/Robin's elongated head. Just doesn't look right.

I dig Dick Grayson's threads.

But never cared for the original head sculpt of the Bruce Wayne Mego. FTC were very faithful to Mego's head -- which is clearly what they were trying to do and what their customers want. Getting a good Bruce Wayne sculpt is just difficult.

All four of Wave 2 arrived in the mail today (from Entertainment Earth). I absolutely love them. One slight factory error. My Bruce came with TWO right hands. At first I was going to ask for a replacement, then I decided I would just replace the hands myself. They pulled out quite easily and I replaced them with two Zica hands. I actually like him even better with those. If I decided he needs to fight, I can give him Zica's fisted hands as well. Interesting feature on the dress shirt - It has an elastic band that is pulled over the right leg. This keeps the shirt pulled down so no bunching occurs around the waist. It's a great design. The suit is a descent fit. Perhaps a tad tight, but not overly so. Zero issues with Dick Grayson. Solid figure through and through. Penguin completely works. Looks just about dead-on as the Mego version. Only slightly taller legs. No big deal though. He looks really good. Cat Woman is another strong figure. I LOVE the material they're using for the gloves here and on all the figures. It's softer than the Mego versions, but very durable. All four figures have full range of motion. The paints are strong and overall they each have a strong resemblance to the vintage Mego versions while still retaining some of their own qualities. No posability or breakage issues on any of them. A solid line. :yes:
