DC Figs From Orniphus!

If you don't know who  Orniphus Is by now,shame on you. I've only mentioned him a little over 100 times this past week.And that's because about a week ago ,he sent me a truly awesome package with some real cool contents!I mean,It was 3 3/4 figure after 3 3/4 figure,lol!Here's his blog site If anybody  wants to check out his work.Orniphus Is primarily a 3 3/4 action figure collector,artist and a good friend.Over the years he's kept up with my site and has a good Idea of what I collect and what my collection needs are.Hence these cool DC figures.I don't have many DC action figures so these guys I can appreciate.They're from a relatively inexpensive line and might be a nice starting point for me If I decide to add more.The Joker Is from a different line than Deathstroke ,but both lines are pretty comparable and don't look so out of place when displayed together.I sorely needed a Joker action figure and this one ,while a little over the top, will fill that void.I love Deathstroke,the action figure.I don't know much about his background,though.I know he's kind of like Deadpool only not as schizophrenic.In fact ,I think the only similarities are their  heavy use of weapons and the fact that they have similar costumes.I really have to commit myself to learning more  about the DC universe.Action figures are a great resource because they force me to hop online and read up on character backgrounds. Both figures came sans weapons or accessories ,but I have plenty of extra arms  lying around to equip them with.Actually Deathstroke came with an exaggerated gun/sword hybrid thingy that I'm not a big fan of. The figures themsleves look great,with spot on paint apps and good sculpt detail.



Deathstroke has cool looking shoulder/arm  pads with a pronounced bandoleer across his chest.





Joker has an insanely sinister head sculpt .Cartoony,but uber devilish.Dressed In his trademark purple suit with flower lapel,evil never looked so sharp.And speaking of sharp,what better weapon to arm him with than a couple of  blood curdling sickles! 



If anything I really need a Batman from this line.As you can see other Batman figures  are In the right scale but lack that cartoonish look of  The Joker and Deathstroke.

  1. I'd just mix Joker in with the normal figures, he does have exaggerated proportions, but it's the Joker. Deathstroke is an interesting figure and his character is quite cool, Marvel lifted the look and some back story for him for Deadpool.

    1. True,Joker's a wacko so he's always going to stand out.

  2. I got the Joker. I am going to have Ray repaint him to be more like a Super power version one of these days.

    1. Glad you were able to score one Matt.I'm sure "Restore" Ray could hook him up .
