The packaging looks awesome, the figures look mediocre at best.

Thanks for the pictures though.

My order from Amazon has been delayed by bad weather.

I like these figure much more that the 4" figures that are out now for the same price.
I like the uniformity of the bodies, similar to how DC Direct did the McGuinness styles figures which were popular.

Went on a little shopping trip (not really to buy anything, more or less just to assess the post-holiday resets and what stores are getting cleaned up and ready) during my lunch break today and I noticed that of the 3 stores I visited, all of them had pegs for DC Multiverse, 2 had pegs for "evergreen" batman 3.75", and NONE had pegs labelled for Total Heroes.

If retail isn't supporting this line already, it could be DOA before the first Matty exclusive figure hits.

Did you check the shelves?... The last couple of rounds of 6" DC at Target were stocked below the pegs.

Yeah, I even looked at a planogram that was taped to the back wall and there is no space allocated for them.

No peg tags, no shelf tags, no space.

Oh well, I was on the fence about the line anyway, and this just makes the decision easier for me.

There is still plenty of time. I would expect to see them by NY Toyfair 2014.

Walmart's resets aren't for a couple of more weeks.

They are in TRU's system for $9.99, but my store hasn't received them yet.

Looking at the pics series 2 is blue/gray. Series 1 is black/gray.

I saw these at TRU the other day, didn't think they were so great.

But I didn't realize they were just 9.99. For that price, they are pretty damn good. I know some people would rather have better figures for higher prices, but if there just isn't enough of a demand for that, it's not gonna work for Mattel - they wanna make money.

Finally got my hands on an Aquaman. Looked at it carefully, but ultimately decided to put it back.

This line is a complete pass for me.

I saw these at TRU last Friday. They were actually nicer in person that what I've seen in pictures but I'm passing on this line. I may get some for my son because he saw pictures of the line and he asked me if he can get Batman.
