Question About Dc Direct Figs


Recommended Posts

Are these figs fairly easy to get? I don't really collect this line, but I'm making an exception for the Hush figs. Is it like a one production run and you and done? Or is it fairly mass produced so that everyone has a chance to get it?

DC Direct figures are produced based on how many orders they get when they're solicited, six months in advance of the targetted shipping date. I imagine they also tend to make a certain percentage over and above orders, to allow for late orders and reorders.


Up until recently, the only place you could get the line was at a comics/specialty shop that ordered from the Previews catalogue. More recent lines have also been made available outside the direct market, but do not appear at the usual places you find mass market toys, but rather at certain music shops.


While for some figures, they've only produced one run, you can often order leftover figures from the backorder section of DC's part of the Previews catalogue (available at any decent comic shop: at the better ones, you don't even need to purchase the catalogue, but instead just find what you're looking for and ask the clerk to order it in for you). For many popular figures, they've also gone and produced additional runs a few months later, sometimes in new packaging (last year's modern JLA figures will be rereleased in November this year, with the Superman replaced by the earlier one from the first wave of Superman, repacked into the JLA packaging).


Most comics retailers that order DCD figures will likely have ordered more than usual for the Hush figures, given the popularity of the storyline and of Jim Lee, so it shouldn't be too hard to find the figures if you have comic shops near you.
