1/4 scale?? I know it'll be very cool, very detailed and very expensive. I think manufacturers (Hot Toys) should focus on expanding existing licenses, such as THE LIZARD, AVATAR X-Me..blah blah blah 1/4 is merely more "dead horse beating" IMHO... Still waiting on the CAPTAIN HARLOCK preview etc. l have 4 of the Hasbro 18"scale SPIDERMAN super poseable figure from a few years ago, they're very cool but I'd kind of prefer seeing "over sized" figures like HULK and ABOMINATION get some consideration. 1/4th?..... Bigger isn't alwsays better...
