The complaint for many DC lines.
Heroclix first set for DC was overrun with Batvillains.

I agree. There are so many cool DC villains that could have been used:
Grodd, Grundy, Sinestro, Dr. Destiny, etc.

Looks to be twelve sets, with all being hero vs villain except for one...

Green Arrow vs Lex Luthor
Superman (flying) vs Darkseid
Scarecrow vs Robin
Batgirl vs Joker
Superman vs Joker
Martian Manhunter and Green Lantern (flying)
Two-Face (orange/purple suit) vs Robin (leaping)
Batgirl vs Catwoman
Penguin (white tux) vs Batman (black/grey)
Harley Quinn vs Green Lantern
Harley Quinn vs Martian Manhunter
Two-Face (black/white suit) vs Batman (blue/grey)

All heroes are represented twice in the line except Green Arrow. Joker, Harley and Two-Face are the only villains that get two figures. 15 different characters total, but there's no way to get just one of each without overlapping a couple of sets (all characters could be gotten without the Two-Face/Batman pack, one of the Joker sets and one of the Harley sets). Thankfully, these aren't supposed to be blind packed anymore but I think the MSRP is $10 a pack -- I really hope I'm wrong on that pricing as $6 seems more in line with Attacktix pricing.

Are the bigger pieces like the Batmobile still coming?


According to the description at BBTS there's 20 different figure combinations.

Hmmm... The Toy Fair pics show a second Luthor, a second Catwoman, a second Penguin and Aquaman -- wonder if those are still part of the first batch?... Still seems odd that Flash and Wonder Woman aren't in there...

Interestingly enough, the HeroClix first set included Grodd and Grundy.

If the production ones look good I'll get them, probably try for the batman ones I want and go from there.

I have the flying Superman already and I have to admit that these are fun to play with. they gave them away at the Mattel booth at SDCC and the screening of the Doomsday film. The Mattel booth also had a rare "black suit" superman same as the six inch figure with cape and all. That one I don't have!

They should have used other villains.

I think they just used what they already had available. Look at those sculpts, they are miniaturized versions of all the action figures we already have or seen save for Green Lantern, Green Arrow and Manhunter...Once of which is already confirmed for 2008, I think we can say with almost certainty that the other two already exist at least in two up form...
