COVID, tho when Joker was first revealed, he was set for $165 so the prices were already starting to creep up.Phantasm looks good but I dunno, I can't seem to justify spending the $200 on mondo figures now. I got Catwoman, Batman and Mr. Freeze for like around 130~ each and I think thats cutting it kinda close to the max of what I wanted to pay. When did these figures jump up to $200 as retail.
I don't actually think it would be that weird to have a shelf full of Batman villains and no Batman. I think they'd look really cool together, even without the B'man.Im conflicted. I backed out of the line because I really disliked my Mondo Batman and ended up selling it. Still have Mr. Freeze, really am interested in Phantasm, but it feels weird to have a bunch of villains but no Batman.
Do these figures still suffer from QC issues? I bought the original Mondo Batman and he's not doing so well today, the crotch grabber has left a dent in the figure, the shading viny skin has completely cracked, the joints are loose and there are magical scuff marks around the figure despite me never posing him at all!
I really, REALLY want to get the figures from this line but the possible QC and high prices really makes me trepedatious.
Thank you for speaking out on the TERRIBLE Mondo 1/6 quality as I had the same experience and will never buy from them again because of it. Just total overpriced junk. In other positive news, WHERE or who made that awesome BTAS figure in the photo? Must be an amazing custom artist. I'd buy that right now if it were mass produced by a quality 1/6 companyI had exclusive Batman, black Batman, exclusive Freeze and exclusive Catwoman. Sold them all. Batman’s print was coming off his cape. The plastic was showing cracks and deformations and I never even displayed or played with them. Catwoman’s heads were loose and never fit right.
By the time Joker came out, I sold them all.
Phantasm looks great, but I wouldn’t trust the black plastic she’s made out of. Problem with this line is, each new character that comes out makes the last one look horrible. Batman is so bad compared to the others. Short, off model, weird articulation and that horrible torso line. I don’t know. I think it’s crazy that the best sculpt of BTAS Batman is a 30 year old toy. By the time Mondo makes Robin he’ll be so much more advanced that he won’t go with or look right with the OG Batman.
At $220 a pop, these 1/6 mondo figures should look more like this,

Not cheap Marvel Legends style 6” figures that look like 2-ups that are no different than what DCD (and now Mcfarlane) is putting out there.
