Most excited about the Public Enemies figures than DCUC Wave 10 or 11. The Wal-Mart 5 pack seems like an excellent display piece the only real bonuses are Catwoman and Luthor. They could've easily condensed it into a 2 pack.

Not sure when Public Enemies wave will be out but I'm guessing Spring 2010 if its after Wave 11. A little late, but who knows really.

3 green lanterns and 3 sinestro corp members sounds good to me but i wish classic costume kyle was one of them. some of the others in waves 10 and 11 r on my want list as well. need all the figures in the walmart 5 pack and will pick up the other 2-pack for animal man. maybe on the superman/batman: public enemies. not a bad assortment imo.

I loved the Robotman, Beast Boy, Deadman figures.

I already have the Kilowog fig from DC Direct and wasn't that excited for the C and C, but whoa nelly that's a gorgeous figure. It'll be nice to have a Katma Tui to add to my Corps collection too.

As for Kyle, he will come, don't worry.

Maybe now that we have 5 packs, we'll have a 35 pack legion out one day.

I'm happy to see B'wana Beast but can't believe he's being released before a single Legion figure.

Guy Gardner should be a higher priority than Kyle. :P

Thank you for posting the slides - I had no idea who some of the DCUC characters being displayed were, and that did the trick!

I agree with the Guy Gardner comment, and I can't wait to get that black and grey Batman from that Target wave.

I'm with Ares, there are many that are very impressive, but many more I don't recognize. Does anyone have a comprehensive list with characters by wave?

If not, no biggie, just wishing I was in San Diego.

I wonder how DC Direct feels about the Four Horseman sculpting an artistic style wave now.

Apparently we're only getting 4 retail waves next year, 11 through 14. I'm assuming 14 will be the Wal-Mart exclusive wave for 2010 if they do things the same way every year. But I feel the number of releases has fallen vs. 2009 and 2008. We got 5 waves in 2009 or possibly 6 if Public Enemies comes out this fall and 5 waves in 2008, so I guess its justified that they decided to do fewer releases next year.

Still, it really limits my enthusiasm for this line when they decided to cut back like this. Add to the fact the heavy emphasis will be on Green Lantern next year, there will probably be fewer obscure characters get a chance to be released at all if ever.

We're getting B'Wana Beast and you're worried that they won't make obscure characters? Really, some of the GL figures shown(the Sinestro Corps 2-pack and Katma Tui) are fairly obscure themselves.

That was the point of the slides. They are lined up in the order of the figures in the wave, then the BAF, then the next wave's figs, BAF, and so forth. :)

Looking at the slides, I see you can remove the top of Robotman's head and look at his brain. Nice! :D

Quoted for truth!

This line, despite it's admitted issues, continues with well-sculpted renditions of the entire DC Universe.

Every time they make a Killer Moth or a B'wanna Beast, my distant hopes of a Tommy Monaghan figure get a little stronger.

all the new product is pretty decent but too many of them are exclusives which I cannot understand why?

Also would of prefered to have Superman movie figs in the same scale as the 6 inch line NOT custom designed and isolated.
