Shortpacked!: Adorably dense. Well, okay, the mustache makes him creepily dense.
So today I decided to crack open my SDCC-exclusive Giganta. It's very attractive packaging, and it claims that you can open it up and fold it to make an attractive out-of-packaging display!
And I ended up with this monstrosity to the left. The instructions on the box make it sound very simple, and don't mention anything about everything being taped together in multiple layers, and how stuff's gonna tear. Or how it doesn't hold together.
I think Mattel lives only to humiliate me.
It looked pretty nice in the box, unopened, but now I've Pandoraed it and it ain't going back in, and it looks terrible. Which I knew going in. Same thing happened to the awesome Solomon Grundy "display" packaging from a few years back. And it's not like me to keep these things boxed anyhow. Giganta ain't gonna do me no good boxed up away from all the other Secret Society dudes. *shrug*
Giganta's pretty nice, though. Neither of the figures' legs are warped, and they both stand solidly on their respective stands. I like the rubber dress both wear. It's better than, say, just giving her a new-mold skirt and painting the rest on. It feels like they put some time into her.
Now all I need is a Killer Frost!
In other news, I showed up in Real Life on Friday, and Ninja Rick made a guest-strip appearance on Dr. McNinja. Sweetness.
