Still kind of early days to have any real idea what's going on, but I do hope whatever the final selection turns out to be has a little more variety. A single TV Arrow and LOTS of Batman and Superman figures. I was kinda hoping for more.

Well, well besides being unexpected it is very timely. Yes, nothing new under the sun, but at least partially confirms what we already knew, I guess there's nothing left to do but wait for an official announcement.

If this is true I do Iike the lineup for Wave 1 of DC Comics figures from Mcfarlane Toys. I do hope we get more Films and TV Figure like a Christopher Reeve Superman , a Brandon Routh Kingdom Come Superman from CW'S Crisis on Infinite Earths crossover and Supergirl from her CW Supergirl tv series also a Henry Cavill Superman figure as well. And all the DC Animated series I want figures from all those series released too. DC Comics comic book based figures I wish they would stick to the modern comics for figures but will see anything can happen. Excited for these figures.

Indeed, I particularly hope to see a classic Lobo too, one that does not cost a kidney.

So I've gotten some more details on the Walmart front from Overlord Dracus.

Looks like there will be two main assortments released. A DC Universe figure assortment and a Batman themed figure assortment. The Batman assortment will have the Modern Batman, Animated Batman and Hellbat figures, while the DC Universe assortment will have the Arrow, Harley and Superman figures.  There will be 6 figures in the cases, don't know the breakdown.

Looks like we will see these on shelves by next month, at least at Walmart. The effective date is actually today 12/15/19 but likely Walmarts wont start stocking them until Jan when they do their shelf resets.

For Spinmaster stuff also look for a Batman assortment, a Batmobile and some Batman roleplay items. No idea on scale and such but all that is gonna be geared more for the kids.

Sounds ok to me, I really would have liked to see a preview, but well, the official announcement should not take long, I expect the line to be good... I also expect that my local distributor will stop playing dumb.

UPDATE: Overlord Dracus did some more digging and has sent word of the following for the pending DC Comic McFarlane figures.

Looks like there will be two main assortments released. A DC Universe figure assortment and a Batman themed figure assortment. The Batman assortment will have the Modern Batman, Animated Batman and Hellbat figures, while the DC Universe assortment will have the Arrow, Harley and Superman figures. There will be 6 figures in the cases but we don't know the breakdown.

The chances are looking very strong that we will see these on shelves by next month, at least at Walmart stores. The effective date for these is listed for today 12/15/19 which means we could start seeing these arriving in stores anytime now, but most Walmart stores likely wont start stocking them on shelves until they do their shelf resets in January. Here are the UPC#'s listed for the figures. All but the Harley Quinn movie figure are listed on the Walmart website now though they aren't available for purchase and no images are available at this time.

- SKU: 820879925 UPC: 787926150018 DC 7" MODERN BATMAN DELUXE FIGURE

- SKU: 414245392 UPC: 787926156010 DC 7" ARMORED BATMAN HELLBAT DELUXE FIGURE

- SKU: 446797481 UPC: 787926155013 DC 7" BATMAN ANIMATED DELUXE FIGURE

- SKU: 733107468 UPC: 787926151121 DC 7" GREEN ARROW DELUXE FIGURE

- SKU: 742049028 UPC: 787926155020 DC 7" SUPERMAN ANIMATED DELUXE FIGURE

- SKU: 637455877 UPC: 787926150025 DC 7" MODERN SUPERMAN DELUXE FIGURE

- SKU: 445240813 UPC: 787926156027 DC 7" ARMORED SUPERMAN UNCHAINED DELUXE FIGURE

SKU: 557109848 UPS: 78792615801 DC 7" Movie Harley Quinn

Based on the Walmart website listings these do appear to be 7" figures and the cost should be $20 each. As per usual with this type of thing, until McFarlane officially confirms these or we see them actually on shelves, we will keep all this in the rumor category for now.

Hey, if that Walmart price was accurate, then I may owe Big Mac a coke.

I'm just not used to prices going down.

I think "cost" number of $12.99 there isn't how much they sell it for, but how much they bought it for from McFarlane.  The "sell" number next to it ($19.87) lines up with what they usually charge for $19.99 MSRP 6-7" figures.

Yeah, I was actually talking about the quoted "19.87" price on the actual Walmart product page.

Now, the prices may very well go up when the figures actually street, but until then it looks like they'll be selling for a good 12 cents below usual MSRP (never sneeze at a penny), and possibly WELL below where ML prices could end up if Hasbro's rumored price hike proves kosher.

I've confirmed with an additional retail source outside Walmart the street date for these is January. Dont know if McFartlane will get around to officially announcing these with images before hand but def looks like these will be on hand soon.

Amazing how information flows from one moment to another. I wonder if mcfarlane is already aware of the leaks. Hopefully with all this they will be forced to give official information, in case it was not yet in their plans, or just wait for some promotional pics to pop up.

Seems surprising that McF would have these hitting stores this soon with no announcements or reveals.  Seems like they’d want/need to promote this more.

You would think but could be a number of factors at play as to why they haven't. Warner Bros for whatever reason might be holding things up, maybe because red tape with Mattel. Maybe they aren't officially aloud to promote the stuff until 1/1/2020. Another reason could be just timing. If these figures were put on the fast track to be made and ready for release by the first of the year then its possible they just haven't had time to take promo images yet.

Hmm, I have a hard time imagining it that way a company just can't release new product that fast and without prior planning, perhaps it is that in fact wb did not allow the figures to be shown to the public, but they were already in production and scheduled but only the distributors were given the information initially, until, carelessly, the information began to leak. I'm sure promotional images exist and will appear suddenly at any time.

Oh yes, out of all these figures i might be looling forward for the modern and animated Batman figures, probably even the movie Harley Quinn probably.

But we'll see eventually

Edit: however I'd obviously be more excited to see if McFarlane plans to do any Batgirl figure, i mean it can happen but who knows... Yeh, really a Batgirl nut myself hehe.

Interested in the comic figures. Not animated. Since, Fortnite doesn’t have BAFs, but stands and accessories  should we expect the same?

Only accessories in addition to the round base a cardboard card as a background, there were three figures that would include pieces to build a small batmovil but it seems that they will not come out yet, but yeah not ML style BAF.
