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.
It also has some delightful images of Clawful (sp?).
At any rate, Dragon Man was released in Toy Biz's Fantastic Four Marvel Legends spin-off (not to be confused with the 5" version from the animated series or whatever line). Apparently the line had a really short run and Dragon Man was among the rarest from it (the same line would have had this wicked Annihilus but it was canceled before it came out. SolidSnakeInMyPants owns a prototype). The figure, which probably would have retailed for around $10 when it came out under a decade ago, currently sells for $200+ loose the few times it pops up on ebay (currently the only ebay listings are a $350 and a $600 buyitnow, both of which are overpriced for the loose version).
While there's not a lot to the figure, it's got a decent sculpt and articulation. And it's definitely something I'd love to own, just not at the prices it sells for >_>
