2008 SDCC Day 3: More DC Universe Classic Figures

Recommended Posts

My excitement for this line knows no bounds! I wish Cornerstore Comics would send me an email saying my case of wave 3 was on its way :) The wait is killing me and after seeing some of these figures I just want to get onto the future waves already!

I agree. This line keeps on surprising me. I started collecting toys with the 2002 Masters Of The Universe figures. I grew op in the 80's and I loved the new take on the characters I grew up with. After the (too early) demise of the Masters I got into collecting Marvel Legends. But ever since Hasbro took over, I haven't been excited to see a new wave (partly because the important characters had already been made and partly because I had the feeling Hasbro didn"t care much for the Marvel Legends line). There are however still a few characters I'd like to see in this line, but things are not looking good.

Fortunately Mattel does seem to be interested in what the fans think. I like the way they divide their waves in the recognisable characters and the B- and C- listers. I don't mind having to buy yety another version of Superman or Batman as long as I know there are included figures I do want to have in the wave.

Hard to get excited for figures I'll never see due to piss poor distribution.

 

 

try harder.....we know you can do it.

Does anyone know if the mullet Superman in classic duds, is a chase or a varient? I hope he is packed evenly with the black suit version, because if he is a chase then I am not likely to find one. I think they did it best with wave 2's varients, Superman red, and blue- one each per case.

ya they showed some cool stuff but again my gripe is that weve got a lot of these characters from DC direct already. Kalibak and Barda are coming out in JAN i think from DC direct as well. though i am excited about Killer Moth...lol, really. i collect all DC figs in the 6inch scale...Adam Strange looks cool though he reminds me of a MOTU character...but on a different note...a buddy got me the Lobo but he was signed by all 4 horsemen with somekind of special sticker...so dang it i wont open him...ugh...guess ill have to buy one online.

DCD shows the characters no articulated justice.

Lobo's packaging is resealable. It opens and closes with a hinge. BTW, the packaging has a 3-d component which is amazing! He's standing on a base that says Spacedock: 0807, which (if you turn it upside down) is LOBO! Very cool packaging!

eh...i like articulation but id take DCD any day....for one they USE MORE THAN ONE BODY! lol plus im 30...i dont play just display...i dont need to my superman to be able to pose like spiderman...but to be fair, mattel hasnt really got a lot of product out there to reasonably compare to DCD. i usually keep one cool version of a charatcer in my line up so its odd which ones i put up. in my JLA i have the Kubert superman but yet the mattel batman.(the one with big pouches that came in both grey and black and grey and blue modern) i was just hoping to get some other characters from Mattel that i havent seen yet. (jason todd, Monarch, etc.) but its really up in the air for which one to choose, take Robin from the batman and son line in the new costume...id rather have the Mattel version. but you cant compare Mattels verision of Sinstero to the DCD version. DCD blows it out of the water...the body is all wrong...it boils down to the fact that DCD just has better sculpts most of the time, after all they are upper end figures...but to each his own.

but i havent taken Lobo out of the package...i gotta get another one from online...

i did get the DCD 10th anny Joker figure...no good articulation but man its awesome.

im 29, and i dont play either. but it would be nice to have a fig that actually moved, than just stand in the up right position. (might a well be a statue) as far as bodies go...IMO, most of the characters from the book look the same. bats, supes, GL, hawkman, manhunter, ect. i feel what your saying, but for 15.00.....i gotta have articulation.

I have to agree that Mattel is giving us more bang for our buck with great articulation, awesome sculpting, and their BAF's are getting better and better. Plus their BAF's are getting bigger while Hasbro's seem to be getting smaller (excluding Fin Fang Foom). I am just happy to see we will finally be getting a Flash figure.

The regular version will be released in wave 4.
