DC Direct’s Blammoids: W. T. F?

Excuse me, DC Direct, but…what the f*** are these things? Y’know, other than the horrifying dream-spawn of a deranged Christmas elf who fell asleep reading the Necronomicon.

WTF?

Blammoids, man. They creep me out.

    They're $10 a pop, too, if the case price on BBTS is to be believed.

    Ewwww, those are well scary.

  3. Variant

    I like 'em a lot, and I'm not generally a fan of minimates-type toys. Firestorm and Sinestro are especially cool.

    Sheesh… I've had enough of hammering existing characters into the vinyl designer toy mold. (Although I did just get a Micky Mouse Bearbrick.)

    I don't think I'll be looking for these. Besides, I already have a bunch of DC characters painted on generic bodies with only minor bits added to differentiate them: the JLU line from Mattel.

  5. *ahem*

    GHEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEY!!!!!!!11oneone!one!11!

    Green Lantern looks like he has a galactic front-wedgie. Mighty Muggs they are not.

  7. NoisyDvL5

    I like 'em.

    I loved Minimates too and would love to have them back. But, those haven't come out in nearly a year. This isn't a case of "we get this instead" anymore than any of the other stuff DC puts out.

  8. Sorry guys (and/or girls), I kinda like 'em.

  9. Dark Angel

    *shrieks, runs away, trips, rubs ankle, scrambles back up, runs away some more.*

    Absolutely amazing that DC Direct didn't think minimates were viable but they'll throw money at these things. They remind me of the old Looney Tunes cartoons when an anvil fell on Wile E. Coyote and he walked around half smashed. Whatever, more DC direct stuff I won't be buying.

    Oh, and nice Land of the Dead reference Poe, I love that movie.

  11. Motorthing

    Testify Poe. Thank Goodness somebody else can see it! I was beginning to think the universal approval expressed on other boards for these POS meant it was my eyes that had the problem….now I know it's just the critical faculties of everyone else…..

    Phew

  12. I like 'em. I think the style looks pretty good and may even pick up one or two of them if the price is right.

    Looks like versions of dcuc you'd see after smoking crack

  14. Fengschwing

    Oh good grief! Pass!

  15. Thomas

    For me, they are like the proverbial train wreck…they are horrible, but I can't look away.

  16. Nicholai

    I like the Firestorm one quite a bit!

    THIS is why DC dropped Minimates? They're very stylized, but they don't look any. . . fun.
