That to me is fantastic!
I agree 100% Vallos.

Even the topless option on the Siren suggests to me that they're letting their artists work unconstrained. And considering Marvel's 'Disneyfication', it's refreshing.
When the Reaper (we should now call him Demithyle, since there is another Reaper in the fold), I was blown away. Then the Queen showed up and I was simply awestruck. Yet, it was the Red Death, that truly did it for me. I was like, "that's it! That what I was waiting for." Not a zombie (which I like, but no passion for them), but a truly unique horror piece. I committed at that point, all other statue be damned, to invest in this line singularly.

QOTD may not come until the end of the year, and she'll probably be in-stock for a while; the Red Death isn't even scheduled to come out until November. So the good news for all the fence riders like me is there's time to decide. So I think whether or not I get on board will depend heavily on what's shown at SDCC.

I had connection with a lot of my current pieces, but after seeing QOTD, Siren etc. it does not pain me to start purging what I have. I will be keeping my Batman-based collectibles, but everything else will most likely go. Batman and the female pieces of this line are my main interests right now.
It is refreshing, isn't it? I am on a really tight budget, but I restructured it as soon as I saw that lineup. I'm on fire with this and it so feels like when I first started collecting. Amazing!

I agree with the sentiments posted so far, since i saw the pic of them all lined up at mosterpalooza i've lost interest in Marvel and DC.

But i do hope this line sticks to creepy horror rather than just resorting to flat out gore.

Red Death is honestly my favorite piece in this line ATM. I'm more into the twisted/disturbing, and he fits that 100%. I'm just started in this hobby, and getting into collecting right when this line seems to be taking off.

I just hope they give some of us a chance who were not around for the original Death's General to maybe make a PF of him with a different pose.

I honestly don't believe they will release him in a premium format as that would change his scale. Judging from the line up photo, he is meant to be bigger than the rest.

I have a feeling Mark Newman will be hard at work sculpting some of these ladies from the chart.

I know that a Osteomancy is the art of divination through reading bones so i'm assuming the chancellor of osteomancy is gonna have some sort of bone related costume like the queen.

This line is amazing no doubt....but why are you purging all of your comic based stuff Lady D????

It just feels right.
Well, I can't give this line all the credit. I am actually getting more into customizing and resin kits. I also would like to have access to my walk-in closet, lol. I sold two larger pieces and I caught a glimpse of the back wall. Woot! I also don't have a ton of display space. And, I just started looking at pieces and came to realize...it won't hurt to sell them. There is a lot going on in my head.
