So do you know when these are actually supposed to be out? 

I've had a couple on pre-order from BBTS for months.

The first wave should be out next week I believe. Superman and Brainiac are due out in Aug I think.

Wow, that Supes looks sweet! I was thinking of tracking down the Icons version since I have been wanting a good classic Superman for a while but I just may go with this one.

They look good although I really wish they had of continued with the DC Icons line. They were comparable to the Tamashii Nations Figuarts and had a lot of potential for some good diorama.

These look good too. The thing that throws me off is the visual.  I like a more classic Superman and that head sculpt does not look very classic to me. I know that is supposed to be based on the Rebirth designs, but I am an old school Superman fan and I liked the Icons look. Just wished that they were better executed.

Yeah I was bummed Icons was canceled to but I think DC fans will be fairly happy with these and they go great with things like NECA DC figures or older New 52 DC Collectible figures.

Those figures look great. I have yet to start collecting DC Collectible figures, but I have definitely considered it before. These new figures are awesome. I might need to consider it again.

I think this is the first Supes figure I’ve seen in quite a while, that actually has a semi-decent head sculpt... Superman is my all-time favorite superhero, and I’ve collected quite a few figures of him, over the years. But, there are a lot that I’ve passed on, simply because the head sculpts fail to be recognizable AS Supes, to me. Some are downright hideous! This though, looks fairly decent. Both the head sculpt, as well as the overall figure.

Man those look good. It just frustrates me that they don’t fit dc icons that I collected, though I think they would fit right in with my new 52 dc collectibles.

Yeah that first dc icons head was so ugly, the rebirth version looked decent.
