    Got it, and man are those gloves tacky. What a mismatch. Might return if I can trade it for a pure yellow one (ah, who am I kidding?)

    • Templar says:

      I read somewhere that Mattel might re-issue this figure with all metallic gold paint job on all his yellow parts – so imagine his gloves as also metallic ……or so they say! Don’t know about his cape, though…..

  • Jaime Rheyes says:

    Um….Yeah, the gold and yellow….Not the best color’s together…

  • Templar says:

    If the factory can churn out a fantastic BOOSTER GOLD figure with a great all-over metallic paint job, I think they can do the same metallic shade on Dr. Fate’s gloves, at least……
    SOOOOO FATE DEMAAAANDS!!!

    • Templar says:

      Ah, well…….just saw some pics of this figure released in the Philippines & Hong Kong already – and they’re sticking with them yellow gloves………bummer………

    Please no yellow mixed with gold on dr fate it looks awful

  • Emerald says:

    A Couple of the Marvel Legends used a gold-yellow mix (eg. Phoenix) and that worked really well. On Shazam the yellow/gold thing worked alright, but on Dr.Fate here?…..nada.

    I wish toy companies wouldn’t mix and match the gold and the yellow. If you are using yellow to represent gold, then I can accept that. But if you are using actual gold paint, then make his gloves and cape gold too. That’s just my 2 cents…

    This would look better if the gloves were gold as well

    I heard the modern version is the variant & how hot is this modern version? What does variant mean with this line though. The Captain Atom variants seemed to be available in equal quantities at retail. I think Mattel has more than one approach to production of these variants. I hope they avoid chase figures as much as possible. They frustrate me, and many of us end up having to pay way above retail on the aftermarket.

      Well we won’t end up paying double I think cause down here at Hong Kong I got my Modern Dr. Fate, hes not much rare more like the classic is rare also I found Hawkgirl, 2 Paredemons, Gentlemen Ghost only but my local retailer got it early because Hong Kong is just down China, and China would ship it earlier for us =) I am happy of it and like the translucent spell accessories. but I have a few problems with the figure. Its not as light as the gold is on this picture =( and the cape makes the abdominal crunch, I’ll probably get Classic version and not open it.
      I believe its more rare due to the fact that the guy was the best Dr. Fate I think.

    Every website preordering this figure shows the classic costume as the variant. So which is it really?
