Unless that is an old stock photo, this set looks to have the 5 POA Superman. Interesting.

I think I like that Superman better than the current sculpt! That's awesome! So for me, it'll be like 4 new figures!!!!

I thought that TG mentioned that Superman was a repaint. I was hoping for a legacy repaint. I love that suit design.

I think they made these up from the pics at Wizard. Wizard put their story on line the other day.

Mantis had his hands up in the Wizard page. Some of these seem to be new photos. Also, since I don't have Mr. Miracle yet, are his colors similar to the original release? The green seems darker to me.

Sadly, no. TG said it was a re-release:

The 13 figures for the fall does not count Lashina, Forager or Mantis. It does count Vic though. So 12 more figure are left to be revealed.

I compared the box set Mr. Miracle to mine, and they are indeed the same.

I think we're going to have one of those discussions where one person reads a quote one way and someone else, another. Because I don't see it as saying Superman is a rerelease specifically. I see it as he was saying the 13 new figures don't include EITHER repaints or rereleases and then separately is saying hey, there's a Superman in this pack and a unnamed character in a different suit. It doesn't explicitly say Superman is a rerelease or a repaint - it's vague.

Edit - there's also fine print on the article the pics come from:
Quote:
*Note to collectors, these are not the final figures and we do plan to adjust Mantis' cape color and Forager's shield."

Hmmmm....I too, interpret that to mean that Superman in the 6 pack was the Apokalips suit as well...weird. :?

That's funny I didn't read it that way at all. A repaint of Supes would be cool, but I think they are probably smart to have one normal recognizing character for moms and kids as an anchor. At least it's not Supes, Bats and WW, all three, again.

Did everyone else read this part?

Quote:
Each wave will consist of two 6-packs, two 3 packs and five single carded figures, some with brand new accessories.


That gets me excited!

Wait a sec...there are 2 6-packs per wave, which means 4 in total??

Or should that be 1 6-pk per wave?

Either way, cool to see new stuff coming!
