    It really has been and it's sad. Listen, I get that every brand manager is going to appoach their jobs differently. I do think though that customer interaction is an important piece though, especially now. I mean, even whoever is managing the Batman Legacy line is more involved than Fangirl 2.0.

    Heck, it was surprising that Rhobyn wasn't around to answer questions when the Ghostbusters news hit.

    Maybe they aren't around anymore.

    What the heck is TG working on now, if he's given up both DCUC and Ghostbusters? Is it just MOTUC, maybe a new Batman movie line? That's it?

    My only complaint, (I know there are going to be complaints about Yellow Jordan and Blue Kyle) is Larfleeze better not be that big. He looks 12 inches there, and in the comic he is roughly the same Height has Hal. Which it's a big complaint is the size of Atrocitus who is the size of Killowog.

    Basically be a 2up please.

    Why is Catwoman so tall?

    Why is Super Powers Penguin in the sub? There were supposed to be characters that they can not do seperately!!

    What is the First Appearance Batman to?
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    Larfleeze better be 6 inches... Blue Lantern Kyle Rayner seems like a waste with no actual Blue Lanterns made in the line yet and I wish the Arkham City figures were more in size with the other figures from the DCUC line. Nevertheless the 1st appearance of Catwomen and Batman look fantastic. I'm pretty sure the superpowers Penguin was meant for the retail line for next years DCU line (?).

    Penguin seems a bit big as well.

    Larfleeze and Penguin are bigger because I'm pretty sure those are prototypes.

    Anyway, I like that Penguin, but he better NOT be a sub figure. The sub is supposed to be for characters that cannot come to retail, and Penguin does not fit that bill!!

    THe 1st appearance Catwoman is great even though I wanted pirate Catwoman, but Batman looks off. It is either his head is too small or his neck is too big, but his proportions look off. In fact, his arms look too long also.

    Super Powers Batman looks terrible. He has way too much blue on him without any shading, it looks like crap. I like he cape though.

    They messed up Sinestro, AGAIN!!

    I love that AC Catwoman and now need to decide which I want more, the 1st appearances or the AC one.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    I'm sure all of those, minus Metron, will be retail figures. The only reason we're getting Ivy in the sub is that Mattel needed to move subs. I doubt we get much else majorly Bat-related in the sub. That's why they went back and started the Legacy line.

    Old school Catwoman FTW!

    It seems Metron is another 12" inch prototype on top of Penguin and Larfleeze. I do admit that the Arkham City Nightwing is growing on me. So far all of the figures from the games two packs have looked great.

    Why? Why? Why? Why? Oh, why? Mattel, why do you finally make a Super Powers Batman and then slap a stupid battle damage slash across his chest?

    Got to say I'm relatively fine with most of the offerings. My big gripe is FA Batman, he really should have used the Alan Scott Torso.

    I am LOVING that Classic Catwoman! They call it "First Appearance Catwoman," but with the long skirt, long cape, and the go-go boots, that's actually the Bronze Age Catwoman - which is EXACTLY what I wanted, since DC Direct made the Golden Age version of the purple dress/green cape costume years ago where the skirt, cape and boots are shorter, and the boots have cuffs on them.

    Young Justice 6 inch Batman looks amazing




    This silver version, not so much



    Hope we get the graphite one instead, but doubtful, looks like a 2up.

    Can't wait for purple dress Catwoman! She rocked that look for decades, but it seems like everyone forgot that look entirely!

    I wasn't going to buy the Batman figs, but I found Catman and Batgirl and went ahead and picked them up. I lost my old Batgirl in grey, so I'd rather have this version than none.

    So, now that a Stargirl figure looks like a reality, I suppose she will be an online exclusive, right?!


    And, of all surprises, some new DCUC just happened to arrive in my local stores this week. I wasn't all too impressed with the Star Sapphire Wonder Woman all too much. Why is it the prototype images looks so freaking fantastic and then the actual real deal figure fails to live up to the original?

    She is part of wave 19, that should be coming out within the next month or so. Series 19 is the figures she is surrounded by, and wave 20 is the one with Sinestro, Reverse Flash, etc.

    I already found Stargirl in Target two weeks ago. Used one fo those $5 off coupons on her and everything. The rest of the wave is still sitting on the shelf collecting dust. Especially those ugly Hawkman figures.

    Yeah, as posted above, she's part of the regular old retail Wave 19, which has been hitting stores for the last several weeks. I have yet to find anyone but Atom & Hawkman myself so far.....

    Got my Legion set ordered from Matty w/relative ease. Hopefully It'll show up before the weekend, but most likely, it'll be early next week.

    Wow, LoSH set is already sold out! Did anyone see how long it lasted? I got mine after the first half hour, but somewhere in the last six hours they ran out.
