Other than the paint scheme, this is the same figure from the History of the DCU line (DC Direct), so perhaps that & the apathy towards Mattel these days is why a sell out wasn't immediate (if it even has done so yet, IDK).
No, it isn't. The articulation is different (and superior). The DCD figure is also in a slightly different scale. I own the original and while I loved the paint scheme, I hated just about everything else.
It is the same character, not the same figure.
All I was saying is that people who have the figure from the other line may not feel they need to get Mattel's version.
