And the party never stops on Queen's charge card LOL. Well I most def will be scoring the 1:6 Batman Beyond and the Justice Society series2 (that goes with out saying), but Im kinda up in the air on that Flash Gorilla Grod statue. Its only 7", but the sculpt look OUT OF THIS WORLD HOT!! Flash's body standing over Grod like that simply looks amazing.

Finally! A Stargirl!! People have been asking for her almost as long as Fire and Ice. And though I have skipped on the Alex Ross lines since I got the Cheetah in one of his first waves (poseability and scale issues), I'm not going to pass on this little charm, just in case it's her only outting. I'll probably pick up Cyclone too, though I really have no experience with her (other than what I've read on Wiki.) Good thing for me is, both will fit in with the rest of my figs (at 6.5 inches) and neither looks overly 'Alex Ross' realistic. Kudos, DCD!

That is SO funny! The term I was going to use was 'Pippi Unleashed', but I figured it would be lost on the rest o' the clan here! You go, SQ! @loll@

Blamoids are you kidding me. Is this DCD answer to mighty muggs. Looks like some you would make in wood shop class. Just awful. And the only other thing is the jsa series 2. but the sups is just a repaint of the justice league sups what a disappointment i will still have to get it because i collect superman figures but again kinda disappointing. that whole series 2 would be better served in the DCUC line

You mean that's NOT a removeable mask? wow that does suck. But don't sweat that $100 price tag. 2 or 3 weeks after his release & the fans see how lack luster he realy is, he'll fall sharply in price.

ACTION FIGURES

JUSTICE SOCIETY OF AMERICA SERIES 2 ACTION FIGURES

Posted ImageFour second-generation Justice Society of America heroes are grouped together to make up the second series of action figures based on the art of Alex Ross!

Just as Geoff Johns’ “Thy Kingdom Come” story arc has brought the Kingdom Come Superman into current continuity, this series of action figures also features a fully articulated, original sculpt of the character.

Figures included:
Cyclone • 8.25” h
Stargirl • 6.5” h
Hourman • 7” h
Kingdom Come Superman • 7” h

Each figure features multiple points of articulation and a base.
4-color peggable window box packaging.

I cannot get excited about the 1:6 scale Batman Beyond. Not for $99.00! It just looks cheap. It looks like a great way for DC Direct to make some wonderful profit if collectors choose to buy it. If I buy this, I won't pay retail. That's for sure.

I'm not a big fan of the movie 1:6 figures from DC Direct. I will put Batman Beyond in this category. I'm sticking to traditional characters from the DCU. Dammit, bring on the Teen Titans! I've been begging for a Speedy for years now!

Why is that? DCUC would just slap down some reused parts and ship about four of them to each store. Dc Direct is featuring all-new molds. I have JUSTICE Superman right in my hand at the moment and it doesn't share a single part with that Earth-22 Superman pictured. The molds look similar, but shouldn't they? It's the same guy. Just be happy they didn't re-use parts or just repaint Kingdom Come Superman from 2004. Mattel would have.

Nice looking version of Stargirl and Kingdom Come Supes. Cyclone looks like she could really use some work though.

Also ANOTHER Hourman figure? Can't get enough him, hunh?

They shouldn't redo any figures from the DC Direct lines in DCUC as it is heavily redundant. Chances are you can get an improved version but it leaves out so many other characters that deserve a figure from getting one. There's very few slots per wave and who knows where this line will be in 1-2 years if Mattel continues its poor management of it.
