What is a Scarecroodle?
~It's a catchier and more memorable name than Scarecrow, which is generally taken anyway. Scarecrow, being a fear-related villain with a catchy costume, is probably one of my all-time favorite villains (just not the movie version).
Beyond that, I'm just your average, run of the mill editor for Tomopop (Destructoid's less successful sibling) and mostly cover western releases.
What does a Scarecroodle like?
~I love fighting games, platformers, horror, and anime. I also collect a lot of Marvel/DC stuff, but most of that interest stems from the old cartoons/movies and the comic interest only came because I thought some of the figures looked insane. Figure-wise, I think the 6\" scale is probably the ideal size for figures. At that size they can make nice display pieces, sick detail, and joints that don't break (like in the crappy smaller scales).
I'm also a massive fan of the really small scales because it usually allows for a lot of incredible-looking scenery (check out stuff like Warhammer, etc). I would love to really get into sculpting, but I'm kinda clumsy which doesn't work well when things need to be exact.
I'd really like to get into statues (because the detailing and paint is usually good), but the pricing is more than a little daunting and you don't get as much variety out of them whereas figures can be posed into elaborate set-ups or whatever.
As you'll remember, Diamond Select picked up the name after the licensing lapsed. Apparently it's been confirmed to only apply to the name and, as such, we aren't going to get rub signs and it's really going to be an offshoot of the minimates line (which was previously stated, iirc). But the big news is that apparently it has a Fall 2012 release date attached now.
PCN did a video, along with the news. Apparently there was a C2E2 exclusive figure.
I guess it is somewhat bothersome that they're a different size and using a different sensibility but this new sculpt is kinda hot. The only thing that'll keep me from this line is probably pricing, since I already see mini-mates as something of a rip-off and they'll be priced at least accordingly.
Supposedly Takara will be bringing back Beastformers, though (which I could have sworn I heard mentioned here but I couldn't find it using the search function)
So much shit to wait for... I'm dying here, folks!
