Just wondering if anyone wants to share their pics of "Sin City" displays. I only have "Marv" but I created a kinda homage using the packaging.

I didn't care for the movie, but I ordered the B&W Bruce Willis figure just cause it looks so damn cool, and I'm a fan of his. I wish someone would pick up a license to Die Hard, John McClane and Hans Gruber figures would be awesome to have. Palisades Toys is doing Die Hard Palz (Minis) this year, but they just aren't the same.

They look good to me, and I've been collecting figures for a long time. My only complaint is that Gail doesn't want to stay standing up. If I tried to list every McFarlane figure that had that problem, I would be here all day.

The smell of McFarlane figures and their total lack of any poseability beyond how it comes in has me very hateful towards the toy lines. These are good, though my complaint with the sin city NECA line is that the black and whie figures can have different grey tones on the body part. Some of the heads are much whiter than the body.

What is horribe about them? They are awesome, & I'm extremely picky about figures. The McFarlane ones were nice too, I have them as well, but Neca is easily putting out stuff just as good as McFarlane & it's about damn time another company did.

I have all the figs + all the variants but on display right now I only have out the Marve, Hartigan, Gail & Yellow Bastard scattered around my computer with tons of other figures from Big Trouble in Little China too Simpsons & the giant talking Marv which is my favorite of the new Sin City figures is in my TV room next to my giant talking "The Bride" & "Jack Sparrow" eagerly awaiting my giant talking Patrick Bateman figure from American Psycho.

Are the figures available in any stores ?


I just picked up the whole set at the mall. $11.00 each, so I jumped on the deal.

it's just how i started arranging my collection...right to left. it always made it easier when i had to add another and shift all in the specific genres. it has worked so very well, i couldn't see going any other way.

I went to 2 different malls and all I could find were some colored Sin City figures so I said screw it and went to ebay. Actually made out pretty decent. I've ordered Hartigan, Gail, Nancy, and Marv. Those are the only ones I want. Though I'm thinking about ordering a set of Series 2 because I like the lineup so far even without Dwight and Jackie Boy.

BTW, anyone see that new Patrick Bateman figure coming out? Wow, I'm happy to see other toy companies release this cool characters. From another toy company a Frank the Bunny figure is coming from Donnie Darko and MacReady box set from the Thing. Totally awesome stuff. McFarlane can keep all their lame ass Predators and Leatherfaces.

Yeah, it's some grunting like "Place all your DVDs upside-down" or something. I can't really remember.

no offense scott but you must be on something to think placing your DVDs upside down saves time if you need to shift things around....

no offense SinCity, but it has nothing to do with putting them upside down and everything to do with how i originally started storing my collection...from right to left. i didn't even realize they were upside down or even cared. because of the way i put my genres the most oft bought genre was towards the end and much easier to shift when i got a new one. that's all. nothing wrong with putting them updise down, it doesn't hurt the dvd or anything and the title is very much readable. easy squeezy!
