Indie Spotlight will feature 20+ pts of
articulation in every 6 inch scaled figure. President of Shocker Toys,
Geoff Beckett stated "We want you to be able to recreate classic
moments from your favorite comics so posability and accessories are
key. Shocker Toys wants to have as close a relationship with the
creators of each character as you have come to have over the years of
reading their books, so our figures will reflect that. We also realize
that Indy Spotlight will create it's own universe as it grows, so look
for scale to play a big part in expressing the diversity from character
to character with giant robots staring down super powered vixens and
over muscled supermen going toe to toe with sickly, inhuman
creatures..we'll have it all!"
