Awesome Toy Picks: Starman (Signature Collection)

Posted by G-Man (30664 posts) - - Show Bio

Each week we take a close look at a comic book collectible to see what they look like out of the packaging. There hasn't been a lot of cool figures in the stores lately and we have another look at a DC Signature Collection figure from MattyCollector, Thom Kallor, aka Starman.

The bad news is this figure is sold out at MattyCollector.com. It was included with the 2012 Club Infinite Earth subscription. They did sell them as well but when they're available, you want to be quick. I have seen some rare occasions when some items end up on sale again in super limited quantities. You can always do a simple search on ebay to add it to your collection.

As always, they come in the plain white box. There's something elegant and classy about the way it looks.

The inner box is similar to the others in the Signature Collection series. You can easily see the figure if you insist on keeping it sealed in its packaging. And there's a little bio on the back if you're not able to check out his page here.

But of course the big question is, what does he look like out of the box? Sure it's collectible and no longer available at MattyCollector. It's our dedication to you guys to rip open the box and give you all a closer look. (Okay, maybe not necessarily rip open...)

You could see in the first pic that he does come with a separate unmasked head. The nice thing about it is it's easily interchangeable. I've had some in the past where it's a pain to try to change heads. You're almost afraid to try out of fear of breaking something.

Check out what Thom looks like without his mask (how's he keep all that beard looking so smooth under the mask?).

This figure also has the right amount of articulation. Sometimes they have too much and other times they just look stiff. This one can be moved around and positioned in different ways.

That's it for this week. Be sure to check for the next installment to see what collectible I'm able to find and open up.

You should have had him holding a sloppy joe! :)

Hmmm, they could have made him black-transparent with little stars and stuff like that in him.

It would be 10 times better if it came with a head that was only half covered by the mask. I love when he goes on those antics.

As far as I know, they did. You can sort of tell in some of the pictures, especially when it comes to the biceps and thighs.

Looks like he wants a challenge to fisticuffs.

This design of the figure resembles Marvel's Moon Knight in the Marvel Legend Series

DC's Deadpool...and I love it!

Starman was one of the best things in John's run of the JSA.

For a collectible from MatteyCollector, one would expect a lot more design. But it's okay.

Starman's the bomb.

I was hoping it was Jack Knight. :(

In space, no one can hear you fart.

Looks cool, I like the speckling which emulates the stars on his costume.

I have the dc direct version from the jsa line. Although it has less points of articulation than the Mattel version, the dc version has an amazing sculpt, the same great costume and interchangeable faces.

I loved the insane Thom Kallor from Geoff Johns JSA.

Starman Sucks and so does this action figure. It looks like a  replica store manikin.

Yeah, you're right. Now I see it too.

Just some more bigger stars or little galaxies would have been perfect. ;)

Is it just me or is this one of the most boring figures out there :(
