Here’s another figure high on my Want-But-Will-Never-Have list: the 2008 SDCC Exclusive Lobo figure by Mattel (why do all the good figures come out as SDCC exclusives?). I’ve been wanting a Lobo figure for a while (he’s the Main Man, c’mon), and this one is definitely the best they’ve ever come out with. Too bad it’s pricier than the earlier Manbat!
Also, I wanted to share with you the #1 on my “Most Wanted Figure List.” This bad boy was a San Diego Comic Con Exclusive back in 2007, and while a few of them still pop up on eBay, they cost a much prettier penny than I can afford. Still, I can admire it from afar! It’s the DC Universe White Variant Manbat. Yowza.
I’ve always loved Manbat (and bats in general); he’s pretty much the literal incarnation of Batman, and he’s just such an interesting character what with his lack of control… a lot like Doc Conners from Spiderman. This white variant is flippin’ awesomely detailed, with the veins and everything. I doubt I’ll ever get my hands on him, but I may be getting the regular brown figure soon, so I won’t be totally bat-less. ;P
