    2007 was a good year for fans of the hit hack-and-slash video game series God of War. That's the year NECA unleashed the fury of Kratos upon the action figure world. Numerous versions of the Greek god-slaying protagonist were released, including Kratos armed with flaming Blades of Athena and the hero donning his awesome Golden Fleece Armor. Fully articulated, the figures awed collectors with amazing detail. This winter, fans will be treated to new God of War 3 figures from DC Unlimited. While more Kratos is a good thing, the high standards set by NECA will be hard to beat.

    I honestly think DC Direct's God of War Series 1 looks way better than what Neca has done. I am a huge fan of both God of War and statues/action figures and what DC Direct will release looks more coherent and as far as I've seen, the sculpt seems better than Neca's.
    Firstly, DC will release several characters, while Neca only released variants of Kratos (with the exact same molds, there are NO additional details...all that for enjoying economies of scales, yes Neca is a company, but still...). Secondly, the anatomy of DC's God of War series looks very good compared to Neca since this latter released a Kratos with (very) long legs. Moreover, the upcoming figures from DC Unlimited will have few articulations, which is perfect for me (I started collecting with McFarlane, I think you understand my joy). However, Neca's Kratos (I'm still thinking how such a great shame it is they only released Kratos) has a nice head sculpt and a base, which is nice to make it stand.

    The following pic is my custom of Kratos (made with both Neca's Kratos and McFarlane's Conan):


    Don't misunderstand me, I own all Neca's Kratos and like them a lot, I just think DC Direct's God of War series will be excellent. I'm even thinking about buying twice of each, one to open, one to keep MIB

    AWESOME custom! I'd buy that in a heartbeat

    Don't get me wrong, I didn't mean it as an attack against what DC Unlimited is doing at all. I'm very excited about their GoW figures, especially the variety in characters we will be getting. I picked up some of their Resistance figures, and while I haven't even played the game, the figures are excellent. If those are any indication to what DC Unlimited has in store for us with future video game figures, collectors are in very good hands.

    I'm glad you like the custom. It's been somehow tough to saw all different parts of the conan figure and to make the skirt loose enough (since it's plastic) to connect the legs to the torso. However, the figure's lacking some balance and it's difficult to make it stand without any accident

    Well, as said in another topic, let's hope DC releases a second wave after the first one! By the way, Hades looks awesome and so does Zeus. I hope this latter is coming out with a yellow lightning bolt in addition to the blue bolts.
