I like the look. Almost a WB version of Infinities without the game.

A nice start to the DC Universe, I just hope the keep it going long enough to get the core League from the Satellite era done along with a few of the extended "family" members (Batgirl, Robin, Supergirl, Mera). Right now, Green Lantern is the obvious "missing" piece but you can't count Green Arrow and Black Canary far behind him, either.

As for TTG!... Definitely need Speedy, Kid Flash and Aqualad to go along with those. (and the Commish go with that Batman!)

And I have to grab that Scooby-Doo set for a friend of mine.

I will certainly be looking for these when I hit Target this weekend. Does anyone know if they'll be with the other Funko stuff in electronics or if they'll be in the toy department?...

I can’t wait until these start hitting retail. LOVE the style and offerings.

I’m in (depending on pricing of course)

That's the real thing, isn't it?... I tried to find them on Target.com but didn't have any luck. My guess would be $10 for the 2 packs and $20 for the 5s. There are too many other offerings out there that match those prices that I don't think Funko could go more and expect them to sell.

That was my hope and logic as well.

Looks like we were wrong Jim.

They are being set on an endocap with the Action Figures (not in the back wall with the other Funko products). Each theme is given its own shelf and the are stocking deep (at least they were at my local store [webster, NY] today).

$15.99 for the 5pack, $6.99 for the 2 packs.

Every theme has a base 5 pack and two 2packs.

I picked up the DC wave (5 pack JL, 2pack Hawkman/Girl, 2pack Joker/Luthor) today. I'll probably end up going back later for the Teen Titans Go! sets.

It's great to be wrong when the price is better! :D

Nice to hear they're stocking them deep, too. (and a Joker set without Harley?... How did that happen?!?...)

I love the Joker and Lex Luthor 2 pack, but not a fan of the JL 5 packs.

JL 5 pack's design is a little off for me. And I felt like Wonder Woman is going to start leaning backward in no time. The paint job and glue isn't great for all the 5 packs on shelf.

Didn't see Hawkman and Hawkgirl 2 pack on shelf.

I wasn't aware of this line until I saw them in Target yesterday. I picked up the entire JL, TTG, and Power Rangers lines. I may snag the Scooby Doo line at some point. I dig the style on these and will be displaying them in my computer room asap.

Each line had quite a few complete sets of each. I guess the scalpers hadn't hit that store yet.

I hope we see lots of additional figures. I know Funko has lots of licenses and would love to see a TMNT line for these.

Superman's mouth is downturned, but when applied out of alignment, it looks like a mustache.

I had picked up the JL sets and the Batman/Nightwing set.
