Has anyone heard any updates on the DC Universe All Stars action figures? I've not heard anything about this in quite sometime and wonder if this is even happening anymore. I've had them preordered for quite a while now. Any news would be great!

In the last round of Q+A, Matty confirmed they'd be showing up at retail around August other than that, (say it with me, kids) San Diego Comic-Con

What's up with Superman's head? from a straight on look, it looks WAY to big. I think it's the costume neck design that makes it look funny.

I don't mind his head size, but I hate the blue of Supes' costume. It seems to be a lot lighter than the darker, more military blue that they're using in the comics these days.

Is it just me, or is Robin taller than Superman?

Actually it would seem he is bigger by just half an inch.

oh.... only half an inch ...

wait, what ?!?

in a 6" scale, that means that Red Robin is a half foot taller than Supes?

I'm not exactly sure how Mattel will spin it, but I can see that is was A) a design choice by the 4H, B) approved based on the supplied control art from WB/DC, and C) the fans fault for not buying enough units of other figures utilizing that buck that they needed to make up the cost by making future figures incorrectly scaled to offset it.

My vote is that Mattel won't even acknowledge it and will be "complete surprised" that anyone noticed and it is an issue.

But, I'm having a bad day so it could just be me.

They're probably trying to save on plastic by shaving a little bit off the various parts, resulting in slightly smaller and shorter figures.

Sigh.

And the hits just keep on comin'. :(

Hopefully one of those customizer folks can fix that issue with Red Robin. I like the look of the character, but he shouldn't be bigger than Bat's and Supes. Can you post a picture of him next to one of the old DCU figures Van? I'm curious how he fits in with them.

I think he meant Red Robin with the non-52 DCU :D

And if not, I'd like to see a picture of that, if you can please!

Thank you, sir! He definitely looks too tall.

BTW, what Superman is that between Red Robin and Doom?
