    From what I've been told they're recycling some tooling from some Batman and Superman figures they made.

    ? Seems standard superheroics to me, the Phantom looks good IMO.

    Mandrake is off-model and lacking his cape?

    yeah they remind me of those awful Total Justice where they look liked they were skinned showing every muscle.

    I had one collector pay my to redo them and add that missing layer of skin to the figures. They look so much better.

    I am excited about these, but my wallet is trying to run and hide. Any word on potential release date?

    The Phantom needs his guns and holster and striped outer panties.

    ^DOTE Phantom was a bit sanitized, and simplified in design. IIRC he had Vixen-like animal-channeling abilities and a Batmanesque array of gadgets.

    These are based on the cartoon in which he looks exactly like the figure.

    I know. I have the original Galoob figures and TV show DVDs.

    That show and those figures were made for little kids. I sort of understand those not having guns in the age of political correctness, but this is an adult collectible. The Phantom without a holster and guns is like Superman without his cape. It just doesn't look right.
