I’ve got the HT deluxe set pre-order but so tempted to get the standard InArts Batman with sculpted hair. Looks to damn good to not at least get him. Besides you can never have too many…😂

I know that this will never happen but I wish someone would release a 6th scale 1966 Batgirl. I have Batman and Robin already and Batgirl would just finish the set.
Omg yes, I’m surprised more people haven’t mentioned her, I guess because I don’t think they ever did a prototype.

Same here, zero issues with pleather on figures. I’ve got a couple that were bought already with issues (thanks TW! :)) but nothing that happened here over time. Helps to live close to Antarctica.

We’ll my 1/6 the terminator figure has a flaking issue with its jacket and I’ve heard lots of other figures having the same problem too when it comes to pleather, especially for those cheap pleather belts Hot Toys makes. To me if you’re paying hundreds of dollars for a collectable you’d want the figure to actually last in the future. I’m happy to pay an extra $100 to $200 for a figure that’ll last as I get older instead of getting the cheaper version for it to slowly deteriorate over time and making me scared to touch it. Till Hot Toys fixes their pleather issue, I don’t see them making any better figures than InArt quite frankly

The new photos In Art just released are legitimately incredible. I dont know how anyone could say the hot toys release looks better.

I’m on board with HotToys because I’m a fan of their brand. They have a long enough track record that makes me rest assure that what you see as a prototype is what you’re going to get.
I’m really looking forward to this piece being released but I LOOOOOOVE that there’s some fierce competition now with InArt and JazzInc. I’m hopeful that HotToys will now step up their figure game and even get around to releasing a few vehicles they’ve teased over the years!

The suit on the InArt figure definitely looks better. I'd argue the cowled head is a toss up, maybe even slight edge to HT.

When it comes to unmasked head, InArt looks like it's probably the winner, though I would argue the paint job is somewhat stylized. Even the sculpted hair looks better than HTs, though.

Anybody have the HT Sandtrooper? Check your pouches. They should be peeling.
I take it yours are?? :eek:

Mine seem fine other than 2 of the 3 flaps on both waist pouches came unglued and are sticking up. Been that way for quite sometime. I'm still too afraid to glue them back down... :lol

I’m loving this competition between the two brands, it’s exactly what us customers needed to get the perfect figure IMO

Sticking with Hot Toys or stuck with it, however you want to put it lol. Both protos are great. The Inart is obviously superior right now, but we’ll see how production for both pieces turns out.

What do you mean by “stuck” with Hot Toys?
