The superboy head sculpt looks really bad, imo. Kind of disappointed since I've been waiting a while for this figure

So let me get this straight. The tier 1 Doomsday is the cotainment suit version and tier 2 (which likely wont happen) is the more iconic version of him during the battle with Superman, which everyone was wanting? Thats terrible. It should be the other way around. I have zero interest in the containment suit version. I want the "unleashed" version to replace the horribly underscaled old DSCH figure.

As posted on the front page:

DC Universe Signature Series

Huntress in September.

Ocean Master in October.

Ra’s al Ghul in November.

Batzarro in December.

Hook Hand Aquaman in January.

Conner Kent Superboy in March.

ICE coming in 2014 also!

Doomsday is exclusive for Tier 1, Containment suit Doomsday is Tier 2


What's that mean? Two different ones?
I don't want containment suit Doomsday, I want regular old Doomsday.

Hook Hand and Conner Kent with Doomsday sounds good. Anymore for 2014 announced?

Seems to me we have several figures that should've been in the Batman line and would've sold at retail anyways.
Laziness or what?

That is why they made the more "in-demand" version Tier 2, to hopefully entice more people to sign up for the sub and make Tier 2 happen.

Matty wants MORE PEOPLE TO SUBSCRIBE, therefore, by putting the figure everyone wants as the higher incentive, it gives them a better shot at making the sub numbers go up.

If the iconic "in-demand" Doomsday was Tier 1, why would people bother signing up to reach a Tier 2 sub?

Personally, I think Doomsday in general, as a figure and as a toy, is a "waste" so ... whatever.

Now that I've gotten a better look at it, I think you're right. Hopefully he'll be a bit refined over the next few months.

I guess the question I really want answered regarding the subs and the tiers is ...

when I subscribe I get a Prison Containment suit Doomsday. If the sub hits Tier 2 do I ALSO get an unleashed Doomsday?
Or is the Tier 2 Doomsday INSTEAD OF Tier 1 Doomsday?



Does anyone know how that is supposed to work?

Is the pic just in the panel link, or do we have a close up?

Good question...because what if I signed up for the sub wanting the containment suit, and then got the other?
I guess I'd be pissed.

Tier 2 Doomsday will replace Tier 1.

Interesting, although I thin that's really stupid.

I think both figures look awesome.


Although tier one should have his arm locked behind his back.

Finally saw the superboy pic..his head looks a little jacked.

Question tho...is that it for the sub? That's all we find out now about next year?

Because the addition of something like Batzarro to the end of this year's sub doesn't make me want to buy next years, even though I am kind of stoked about Doomsday.

Is Doomsday going to be available day of, or just the exclusive?

I am now confident that it wont even reach tier 1 this year. The rest of the 2013 lineup is not setting well with a lot of people (with Batzarro being a big F U from Mattel) and making the classic Doomsday a tier 2 isnt going to gain more subscribers. I think it will lose more than it would have gained when you consider how many were planning to sign up JUST for Doomsday and now wont even bother since tier 2 has no realistic chance of being hit.

Doomsday is the sub-exclusive. Or eBay, if you prefer.

It does seem like the reveals are kind of light for next year, doesn't it? Last year we got four figures and the sub exclusive. Though one of those reveals was Larfleeze, who was already done.
