I don't know what your 'Oh no' means, but my, 'Oh No,' (which was really more of a :o ) means I may need to find another source of income for the 1/6 scale figures, if these are comic book based, done in-house at SSC and are cheaper than Hot Toys, and maybe some $$$ and space for a statue or too!

And it also means... if the 1/6 figures are comic book-based, what the heck do I do with my mostly inferior out-of-the-box DC Direct 13-Inch figures??? :shock:

And what does this really mean for the future of DC Direct?

I sure hope Sideshow has something to show from this license at SDCC!

Here is the AFI LINK.

I guess I missed the parts about ...will complement the robust offerings available from DC Direct... and the serve to enhance and support an overall product offering, which continues to be led by DC Direct :oops:

I DID re-read the parts that The Superfly was so kind to highlight about the 1/6 Scale figures. I want a Batman, NOW! :mrgreen:

My worry is the premium formats and Comiquettes---

Harley Quinns, Catwomans, Posion Ivys, and Batgirls are gonna get expensive....


My only hope is they use the New DCU so maybe I can skip the offerings...

Ha!

Last year at SDCC I went back to their booth various times and just stared at a lot of their stuff. If I had the space and money these guys would already be bleeding me out, and I'm scared to see what they come up with for DC.
