Lego Shazam, Martian Manhunter imitation
Look at what i found today! One of my wanted list SDCC lego figure - Shazam!
Of course it's not original. Lol. Where i have such money to buy $200 lego figure. =(. but my sdcc batman is an exception. that's why i decided not to take it off from the card. I think that's the only thing that differentiate original with custom or imitation.
As usual, found them at local toyshop at RM5 each, and this time they also have 5 other figure: lego martian manhunter, lego the flash, lego hooded robin, lego nightwing, and lego dr.doom.
eh wait, Decool already have imitation Martian Manhunter? Lol. They are ahead of Lego. Just last month rumours spread that Martian Manhunter will be available in March.
However the imitation quality as you can expect - not very nice and detail. If you compare this picture and the advertisement above -
it's very different design!
update on 15th Feb 2014:
Its different torso printing because M.Manhunter by Lego wear new costume from Injustice and Decool M.Manhunter wear costume from Justice League! Thanks Cylo Hudencial for pointing this out in comment below. I should have check with google first. lol!
Found images of him from Justice and Injustice League - and i put them side by side to compare:
Even tough i already have the original figure, i always buy them in complete set because im curious to see the quality of RM5 stuff.
This is what inside the box.
Wow, i hate it that they now also have that 3 x 4 display plate. exactly like lego but no lego logo on that stud.
if you are wondering what's coming next - they also include brochure of available/coming lego figure. Gosh, i cannot wait fantastic four figure next. and cyclops too!!!
here's the scan image of the brochure. if you want to see them in detail:

Figures without accessories. i always throw them away because i dont want them to mix with my original lego.
From all 6 figures above, i have all except shazam and martian manhunter. I will do comparison - take picture of them (original versus imitation) side by side when i have more free time =)
