Indeed. Something good about superheroes is that their costumes are mostly anatomical, the problem will come with those characters with more elaborate costumes.

The funny thing is, the Peely figure from McFarlane's Fortnite line has a more useable ab crunch than these Mortal Kombat figures do because even though you don't see it at all on the Peely figure, they used a rubber material for the Banana peel hence allowing you to bend him at the mid-section far more than you can with these that used a hard plastic. If McFarlane had used a similar material on the shirts of these figures you probably would have had a more poseable figure and still look about the same.

As for possibility, if McFarlane sacrifices that for aesthetics like not giving a figure a working mid-section joint I guarantee far more people are going to be upset than happy. Its fine to hide joints when you can, but for figures like these you can't just not include them or make them useless because they aren't hideable. Its just not gonna fly IMO.

I do not expect a lot of POA in the upcomming DC line, but I hope they will be able to have an acceptable posability without sacrificing aesthetics.

Yeah I mean every mass produced line is always going to run into some issues. Hasbro figures can sometimes have iffy paint, but I generally don't worry about a ML figure breaking in my hand when I am posing it. Not saying its never happened but they tend to hold up far better than stuff you see from the smaller companies.

I amnot a fan of the plain stands they look a bit cheap, but I thinkboth figures well worth the 20 bucks. I really like how they did not use the same sculpt for scorpian and subzero they each look unique. I'm definitely picking these up now thanks for the great review.

I like these stands just because my shelf space is limited and large stands tend to take up that valuable space. They are generic and probably cheap but they do the job and to me thats what matters.

Awesome review. I wasnt sure at first. Nowpretty sure if I find the GameStop exclusive versions of these twoI will pick those up

Nice review. So yeah, the figures turned out to be a bag of surprises. I like the sculpt, I think this is the strong point here, although the outfits limit the posability; the bad thing is the quality control, which is still the "Achilles' heel" of Mcfarlane, I hope that in the in the upcomming DC line we don't have to worry about bats or supes' head poping off everytime we want to move them.

I find quality control like your referring to is a problem for many figures that these smaller companies put out whether its NECA, McFarlane, DC Collectibles, DST, Super7 so on and so fourth. My guess its because of the overseas factories not giving these smaller companies that don't produce product in big bulk like say a Hasbro as much attention to their stuff. Unfortunately its just the nature of the game and some companies have been able to improve. Like NECA used to be horrible, but while they have improved I still will have issues with their stuff.

McFarlane's biggest problem is he still designs the figures more for appearance and less for movement. The articulation has improved but like with these mortal kombat figures. There should have been a working ab crunch or mid-section joint given to these. Characters of this type that beg to be put in dynamic fighting poses, but I almost guarantee they didn't because McFarlane refused to have glaring ab joints seen on his figures so instead of putting the joint on the outfit he put it under it which made it totally useless.

Another very cool review Jay.

Following the footsteps of Shartimus?

LOL, Shartimus didn't actually invent stop motion but I would say in trying to make the reviews a bit more entertaining I am. I will also say its amazing how much longer it takes to do that kind of stuff. I ended up spending a good portion of the day working on that which in the video only lasted a couple minutes.
