Ok.. so I got a lil bit geeky and bought myself a Tali action figure ;)




The DLC code was pretty much junk, but the figure was actually nicer than I thought

I have it myself, but I haven't unboxed it yet. Not really sure why I haven't. Same goes for the Shepard action figure, which didn't look like Shepard at all. At least I unpacked the Normandy model I bought.
I'm Commander Shepard, and Tali'Zorah is my favourite girl in the galaxy.

As these figures came from DC Direct, I had very high expectations.  I have a DC Direct Lobo figure that is excellent, and the DC Direct Watchmen toyline was phenomenal.  By comparison, the Mass Effect toyline looks like something that Hasbro or ToyBiz would have crapped out.

Still, I thought I would at least snag the Tali figure.  However, when I saw how much customization needed to be done to the figure to make it even remotely posable, I decided against it.  I mean, they couldn't even make her visor transluscent in order to see a partial face behind it?  You're better than this DC Direct!

Take THIS CUSTOM as an example; they needed to add an ankle joint so that she could stand without squatting, change out the joint in her arm so that she can actually reach over and touch her Omnitool, and re-paint her cloth parts in order to have her signature swirl pattern.  This chap also made a SECOND CUSTOM which made her mask removable (although, this was before her face had been revealed).

All in all, I was not impressed enough to pay DC Direct prices for ToyBiz quality figures.  My apologies if anyone who has bought this figure takes offense; I'm just sharing my opinion.

Mine can't even hold her shotgun :( I'm hoping the Legion and Garrus I ordered are a bit better, but I'm not holding my breath. I only ordered them because I'm a consumer whore.

The ones I've seen on ebay seem pretty expensive, if what I'm reading is true it probably isn't worth it.

Yeah, only get them if you can buy direct from a distributor. Don't buy resale.

That is just a re-release of the same figure.  There doesn't look to be anything new about it.

Its a stock picture of the old model i think. Its not going to be sold tell AUG so im sure they are finishing some of the designs. The reason i posted it is even if they just remake the old model it would be sold for $20.00 rather then the $50.00+ ones on ebay and other sites.

Nope, that's just when they get new stock. It's probably taking that long for the supplier to do another run. Trust me, they're not doing a redesign. It'll be the same as previous runs. I am still waiting for my Legion and Garrus figures, because even though I have them on order from Amazon, they just keep pushing the date back. It'll probably be August for me as well.

Also, I really need to restate this, especially with them doing another production run:

ONLY BUY ONE OF THESE IF YOU ARE A CONSUMER WHORE BECAUSE THE QUALITY IS ABSOLUTE SHIT AND FOR THE LOVE OF GOD GET THEM FOR 20BUX NOW DON'T WAIT TO SPEND 50BUX ON EBAY LATER BECAUSE IT'S NOT WORTH IT

:ahem:

EDIT: Also, the product images are utter bullshit. The quality of the product in those images is significantly better than the actual item you get. You should see the discrepancy of the Legion figures between actual images of what people have received and the product image. Holy shit.

Makes sense that they would just re-release the figures with the ME3 logo.

I am one of those nerds who likes to keep the figures in their original packages :D. So when the first series came from DC direct, I couldn't help myself from opening the packages. I did however feel a bit of regret from opening them. I was hoping that they could re release the figures. Especially because the figures became a bit rare over the past months. So Now I had purchased both series 1 & 2 from this guy from ebay. The Only difference that I could see is that the Shepherd figures 5 o'clock shadow is darker and his lips are more pink. But other than that the figure models are EXACTLY the same.
A hero is some one who isn't afraid to die for what he believes, even if he would lose everything he was fighting for.

I thought about buying an additional one to keep "safe" but didn't have enough money for it.
It certainly looks better IRL than in the product photos.

I thought I'd post a "desk" shot. Pardon the crappy phone quality. Didn't have batteries for my regular camera
