If I were collecting the black and whites of these I would take you up on it. However, I did the color versions, and I don't do variants. Ever. I didn't even buy the color variations of Frank, Drac and Invisible Man. my set consists of  9 characters.

What if they are the same price and you like the "variant" better than the regular issue?

I pick one and stick to it. For instance, I decided I would get the Mezco 1:12 Frankenstein. I didn't buy the black and white. I was gonna stick with color.  I just don't do variants as a general rule of thumb. Keeps me from going completely broke instead of just moderately broke. The only thing I might actually break this collecting rule on would be Psycho. Yet no worries there...because no one makes anything for that film with any regularity of release :angel: :laugh:

Anton. Did you like or collect the McFarlane Maniacs, Psycho/Norman figure?

Yes, I have that figure. I was hoping for a Mrs. Bates in chair. Alas, she never materialized.

Is there any option to retool another Norman figure and make a Mrs.Bates?

I suppose it could be done if someone were creative enough. Using Norman's torso, which oddly enough was given boobies.

 I thought Mezco sold the color one as the "variant"? I got both, but found the b&w one to be better painted. Though, if you only collect color, it makes sense.

What I mean by "no variant buying" is I go one type. All color or all whatever....no buying multiples b/c of paint variantions.  I ain't buying a Gogos painted version, a glow in the dark version, a black light version, a version that sings "how much is the doggy in the window" or anything like that. One and done. I picked color for the Mezco 1:12. Not that that one mattered,lol.

There's a "how much is that doggy in the window" version? Dang, I missed out again.
