Awesome Toy Picks: Atrocitus (Signature Collection)

Posted by G-Man (34210 posts) - - Show Bio

Welcome back to Awesome Toy Picks. We all love comic book collectibles and each week we take a close look at some of the cooler ones.

This week's is Atrocitus from the Matty Collector Club Infinite Earths collection. He was released in June and pretty much sold out right away. That means when these figures come out, you either need to have had a subscription or try to grab immediately. I'm sure they'll pop up online.

I always love getting figures from Matty Collector. The packaging usually has an elegant feel to it and I really like the plain white box the figures come in.

== TEASER ==

It's kind of surprising that this figure would be available in small quantities. There was one in the Blackest Night series but I think I like his head sculpt better here. I don't own that version but it'd be interesting to compare the two.

Here's some shots of the packaging.

The real question is, what does the figure look like out of the box? Of course some of Atrocitus' friends will be stopping by.

That's it for this week. If you have a regular Atrocitus, how does it compare to this? We'll have another edition of Awesome Toy Picks next week.

Tony Guerrero is the Editor-in-Chief of Comic Vine. You can follow him on Twitter @GManFromHeck. He wonders if they'll ever make an Atrocitus figure with a red power vomit accessory.

It looks cool, to bad it's already sold out or I would have bought it.

I think its lame that he can't hold his lantern IN his hands. I hate it when DC does this to the lantern figures.

AWWWW i WANTED THIS FIGURE!!! But his face needed to be more menacing...

#7 Posted by Bluefox170 (382 posts) - - Show Bio

I own the other one, it's a lot more menacing and detailed but it has less articulation.

L...M..A..O... nicely done.

You know G-Man purposely staged it and we thank him for it.

Wonder what user thinks of this.

Sinestro's thought: "That's right, do it, smell it...SMELL MY FINGER YOU FILTH!"

::Atrocitus's cheeks begin to bulge as he thinks:: "That's the most vile smell ever...I think I may actually wretch napalm for the first time out of sheer disgust than rage!"

@RedheadedAtrocitus: Too funny. Do you like the figure?

#16 Posted by RedheadedAtrocitus (6885 posts) - - Show Bio

@Decept-O: Like the Spice's Girl's song says....this is what I want, what I really, REALLY want...

@RedheadedAtrocitus: Ha Ha!

Atrocitus's and Red Skull's heads could be interchangeable.

Totally agree. I think it really adds something when they're able to hold their accessories

That is one I'd like to have.

I need...that toy...

#24 Posted by Druid (104 posts) - - Show Bio

His teeth (and mouth) are too wide and huge and chompy, quite different from the graphic on the packaging. Does his mouth ever close?

Although I have a regular Atrocitus, that I haven't put on display in a year, I'm not sure how it stacks up to this one.

@kfhrfdu_89_76k: Yeah, I could definitely go for at attachment for that or something.
