    Riddler's hands won't stay on either.

    I'm normally a pretty positive guy about FTC, but these two problems kinda bummed me out and I shelved 'em all and stopped thinking about 'em and got on with my life.
    yeah for the money they really should stay together and be able to pose.

    I received 6 figures today.and yes creeper is nice.black canary is nice .she has the same cheetah sculpt .but it works here.10 of clubs is ok she looks to have a repainted Starfire sculpt.its nice .her (10 ) on her outfit are stickers.birdman is rather nice although his wings should have been larger.green ivy also has Starfire sculpt.( Ftc uses their same sculpts to often.but it's better then the Daisy head .( On one boxed ivy I used the red headed Supergirl head .again to commonly used but it looks better then the other two sculpts.the atom is simple .as mentioned the head is a little to large .I think their all great and I like them.although I'd like to see ftc stop using those plug glove/boots .I never liked those.

    I think Black Canary is amazing, Creeper a work of art. Don't get me wrong, they have flaws but they are so fun. Atom is good, I am not a big fan of the molded gloves and boots but nice sculpt and body suit. The new Riddler and Penguin are welcome editions, I am happy I got em. I hope FTC continues to expand the DC line.

    is Atom or Birdman's suit baggy at all? Even though I critiqued FTC the other day I am pleased with canary and creeper

    Atom suit fits well. Not baggy.

    I got these the other day. I think this group is some of the nicest figures FTC has done yet. Nice update on the packaging too; very retro stylish. Black Canary is great, really like the Riddler and Penguin updates, and I think the Atom and Creeper look really good. (I didn't get Poison Ivy.)

    Opened and worked on so far (Megoizing all of them):

    Black Canary: Best of the bunch. Jacket isn't stretchy but still works quite well; the thinner material is well suited for this and doesn't seem to limit movement much. The top is not long enough; if I straighten her out, she literally pops out the top of it. Had to use some thread to loop around her neck and hoist it up a bit (though I'm sure Green Arrow will hate me for doing so). The boots are well fitting; actually had to heat them to get them off. Head sculpt is good and the paint is nice; one of the better female heads we've had in a while.

    Creeper: The fur piece is well designed with the little elastic straps to hold it in place, but the appearance doesn't quite capture the look needed. The gloves and boots are pretty standard and the fur atop them looks good. The face sculpt is very good, but the heads are still inhumanly skinny front to back, so he looks really off from a side view. The hair detail is excellent, though. I am giving him a yellow bodysuit, but he looks quite good as is, honestly.

    Atom: The head is big, not Alfred huge, but noticeable. The suit looks fine, but the belt is oddly small and skinny. Boots and gloves are well done and quite well matched. Atom symbol on the mask is nice and sharp. Pretty basic, but aside from the oversizing on the head and the undersizing on the belt, they did a very good job capturing the look. And he's almost life size!

    Still have Penguin and Ivy to open. Good old Oswald looks very nice, at least in the package. Terrific head sculpt, at least from the front.

    Addendum: Mego-ized Canary and Creeper:

    Canary just got a pair of original Catwoman boots painted black. Creeper got a more extensive makeover, but still stuff Mego would have had access to in the day.

    I finally got the Atom today and I think he turned out nice. He looks better than in the pictures and his head definitely isn't too large. It's just a slightly cartooney look with his chin, nose and ears all pretty big and protruding. And the head is actually too narrow. (It should be about 5 eyes wide which it clearly isn't). But the sculpt still works for me. Now I'm still trying to decide if I should get Creeper as well. I'm just not sure about that happy smile on him, shouldn't it be ... creepier?
