 lol This, from that review in the first link, is funny to me:

Quote
As far as sculpted detail, there’s a lot, though it can be hard to see all of it with just the primer.  Once you slap some paint on there the details start to pop out.

In common speech, as I decipher it anyway, "detail" tends to mean two very different things. It can be a quality, in terms of sharpness or fidelity in the sculpting and casting, or it refer to quantity, an amount of detail, the number of accessories, how many buttons, etc. These figures have neither and it's a laugh to hear someone claiming otherwise. It's as if he can hear the truth in his head, but he's paid to refute it.  lol


Then, later this is also choice:

Whether you’re picking up these Deep Cuts X-Men for painting or for their fun dials, there’s lots of value in these figures.  This first set of nine hits stores later this month, and each will retail for $4.99 MSRP. 

$5 for an unpainted HeroClix figure? What?  o_o  ;D

These are not your average Clix. The details are much more crisp and the plastic is higher quality. Of course, as in all things, YMMV.

Yeah I'm unsure looking at those pics, the detail looks about the same as regular clix but hard to tell as the only physical photos are tiny. A lot of current heroclix have decent detail already although there's more of those badly done digital sculpted ones with almost no face detail under the paint.
