if his hand is in his pocket i dont see how they would have a switch out arm with gun short of offering a lower torso swap out as well. unless you all mean a swap out left arm / hand instead of the coin but at that point i would much prefer the coin. having him hold a tommy gun in his right hand would have been the cherry on top but its the world we live in today where people cant separate reality from fantasy based collectibles

I don't get how he could be actually flipping the coin. What would suspend the coin in the air that wouldn't look stupid?

Pretty sure he's just holding it and looking at it.

I'm thinking an effect like the Bowen spinning hammer Thor, as mmk suggested, or the DC Collectibles Nightwing. If they don't want to use clear resin then they could keep it a solid color. It might be one of those "looks better on paper" deals but if they pull it off I think it would really add to the piece.

Forgot about the teaser...unless they made a change, I think you're right.

Good question. To me, it's hard to do.


I like how XM made Magneto look like he was levitating his helmet or cerebro. But it helped that the helmets were bigger objects. A coin is way too small to pull off the same thing.

Yeah, that was my thinking too. I get other statues have done big weapons, but a small coin? I don't think that would look good at all.

I am liking the simple pose, the compact size of the base and the proportion of the body. Let's hope it is in the right colour scheme with an awesome headsculpt.

I don't need swap-out heads and arms. I don't need to see him holding gun(s). It looks great as it is.

TH will do well to keep it simple and keep the price point down. It is a wise strategy considering the state of the hobby and the state of the financial situation of many collectors currently.

Are we of the mindset that his suit will be black/white reversed?

I guess the only question is if hell have a green half face, a red half face, or both.

His hair does look a bit frazzled on his bad side.

No gun, but honestly, that would just be extra. This is exactly what I've envisioned. I just want to preorder it already...

I hope that with future DC statues that Tweeterhead keeps it simple like it appears Two Face is
