Looks good, but damn them for making the current Firestorm the normal and classic the varient!!!!

The classic was only Firstorm for 98% of the characters exsistance, why make him the norm?

The entire wave is awesome! My only gripe is the face on classic FS, plz fix it Mattel. modern FS face looks way better! That classic Aquaman is by far the greatest Aquaman figure ever sculpted as an action figure! EVER!

Harley is awesome, just look at that beautiful head sculpt!

Supes Blue/Red look great!

Black Manta is my 2nd must get fig after classic Aquaman!

Grodd is rockin!

4HM, plz fix Ronnie's face sculpt!

Agreed, they'll both be mine....I've been waiting for them to be made for what seems like forever. Harley also looks great.

Harley Quinn looks awesome, but why do we get her fully articulated before we get a fully articulated Joker?

Also, it would be awesome if they came up with a system were we could vote for the figures we wanted rather than take what we get.

Great looking line. these figures are great, well until Mattel cheaps out on the final product paint job/cheap glossy plastic.

Still I am looking forward to this line very much, that amazing Grodd is reason enough to skip the crappy DCD re hash from the Justice line.

And about time a decent Superman blue/red was made. Even though it was a lame point for Superman the look is neat and with all of the DCD Superman figures and crappy Mattel variants, theres no reason why these shouldn't have been done.

Likewise! The thoughts of having a fully articulated Green Arrows with multiple arrows (some specially - every lovable boxing glover arrow *crosses fingers*) with working quiver that can stand next to ML’s Hawkeye…that’s freaking sweet!
They’ve got to have Flash, Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, Green Arrow, or Martian Manhunter in the next series…I mean they have to have at least one! Those are their biggest names outside of Batman and Superman and they’ve still yet to do one.

I agree. But I'll still get Harley and Superman Red/Blue.

Mattel & the 4HM really get the idea of how action figures based on our favorite DCU characters should look. Not artist themed, not out of scale with each other, not limited to 9 POA, vanilla posed, not pre-posed!

Ronnie FS is my only nitpik, they've got to fix the face sculpt & also improve the head flames, they look too cartoony IMO. Modern Firestorm actually has the better face sculpt & looks great,again, minus the cartoony headflame. This is how classic FS should look, face wise. hopefully the 4HM will correct it & the flame heads.

IMO, DCCU Aquaman blows away any of DCDirect's versions cuz while some may have actually looked pretty goos sculpt wise, they were either too tall, not articulated enough or just looked like crap! Judge for yourselves.

Only thing I give DCDirect on Firestorm is the flameheads, the DCCU flameheads look too cartoony IMO, hope they fix this.

i prefer the old DCD Grodds head sculpt, it has more personality in it, so far the DCSH one much like the upcoming Ross one seems more like a Gorilla and less like Grodd then i'd like

what is is the infinite crisis of the dc forms?.. a tni civil war of dcd vs mattel will get old fast just like in the marvel forms....


Anyways! I am with clam on this one!! Hopefully these chases will not be TOO HARD to find other wise I'm not even going to go past the first wave on these... & clam don't forget sups red & blue I tihnk they are chases as well... who wants just one?.. If you want one you want both!! :P

I am already scared about having big charecter gaps in my collection of these suckers... There comment on the GLs of " why pick" makes me wonder as well if the GLs will not be chases as well! If I could order a case of these and get every chase then I Would be happy but if they are going to do the toybiz rout where if you order say 4 cases one case has all the chases type thing I don't think I will even bother with this line up... Enough is enough!

Aquaman looks awesome. I can't wait to get the shorter hair version!!! I am also digging the Nightwing repaint since I didn't get the original. I am also loving the classic Batman. That Electric Superman will be perfect for a modern X-men Havok repaint.


My only complaint is on classic Ronnie FS. I would have preferred a more neutral face expression than the constipated look. I doubt they will change it. I wish they would have made Ronnie the regular and Jason the variant. I also just got the SuperPowers DVD featuring Firestorm and I feel like a kid again! I remember why Ronnie Firestorm was my favorite Superfriend growing up!

I am looking foward to this line carring Hal Jordan Green Lantern, Wonder Woman, PowerBoy to go with my Supergirl, Cyborg, Catwoman in the purple/black costume, and Starfire in her modernized classic look.
