I forgot to mention I am tax free in NH so if people want get on my list for Damian PM me. If I get 9 other people odds are you will pay less or right around what you would from Matty.com.


Might want to do a dry run on that, first. Used to be that way for me but for some reason when I got to a certain point shipping jumped about $10. I remember it used to top out around $23-24 even if you were getting multiple boxes shipped but this last time it was $30.99 for 13 items.

Brought and received my Arthur and Fang Man two days ago. Great figures. Going to miss adding DCU figures to my collection. But once they're done so am I with the DCU. I'll be satisfied enough with this line.

I'm really just trying to gauge interest in the line as it winds down. I thought Aquaman would be more popular. I'm guessing the remaining figures will be less so.

I thought so, too. Makes me wonder if things will jump from bad to worst when the $30 dollar Super Power repeats start showing up.


Yes, I agree. Interest seems to be waning, and those SP figures are a must-have for only a relatively few serious collectors.

I'm basing my prediction on future sales only on anecdotal evidence I've seen here and elsewhere. Some people were disappointed with Damian's scale, but his death has raised his profile. Female action figures don't sell as well as their male counterparts, but Fire needs Ice. No one seems to want Superboy (personally, I think the DC Direct version is much better). Frankly, it's hard to tell which one will sell better.

The whole point was to determine whether I would be better off getting the rest of the figures on eBay or joining with another collector to lower shipping costs. Aquaman cost me $36, and that's steep for an action figure.

As far as I know, they are doing the animated version for the Batman & Son movie. Which is not quite the same thing. But then again, they could always "re-release" the Batman Incorporated version. That figure goes for hundreds of dollars on ebay. Same as the old Arkham Asylum Bane before the 2-pack re-release. So in my mind, it's kinda of a no brainer for DC.

I'm in the same boat. So much so that I'm considering PBateman's offer. But you know... that figure is such long ways from now, and so many things can happen between now and then.

Yeah I would too and he is the only one I want. My friend has early access and says I can use it but I loath buying one measly figure and paying shipping. If I can get enough people I would prefer to buy in bulk and save on shipping otherwise I will shop around on Ebay for him loose around his release.

i'd like in on this if it's still an open offer. i'll pay for two robins, even three if need be.
