How long ago was the NBA line announced?
And to be honest, both Sideshow and HT do the teasers; they also tend to get products out much faster than EB
Yeah like MGS, Kevin Flynn, Those broads from Sucker Punch, plus the City Hunter,plus a whole lot of stuff. HT havent shown teasers or 'Backstage' pics of so many licenses that they have announced.
Might I just remind you of the Superman Christopher Reeve coming this 'winter' tagline?
Like I said, at the present moment EB are churning out figures, teasing them at the correct time before release and showing OFFICIAL pics a week before sales or (in the case of Elvis) a couple of months or so.
Give credit where it is due. EB have stepped up their game a LOT since the GoD fiasco. Been more customer friendly, totally changed the way they are showing their figures and their production paintwork on headsculpts are far ahead of anything in the market today.
The very fact you see a sculpt of TLJ as soon as its done is something you should thank. Hot Toys show nothing like this until they have a proto done already and then start the comments like 'The Likeness is off'
Since the 1/4 Terminator, EB have pulled ahead a lot in terms of quality work.
