...I'm going to have a hard time not getting these things. I have the free Superman givaway from SDCC (standard one not the black suit variant) and it's so fun to play with! :lol:

I have a case of these and the DCUC on order from BBTS and I am hoping they get them in stock soon and they are able to ship them in time to be under the tree.

Me too! One of the reasons I don't buy HeroClix is that very reason. Maybe I have the wrong perspective, but I feel like I'm being robbed when I can't see what I'm buying... :roll:


The pictures here look good. I may have to get a second job to add these into my collecting mix! :wink:

That was announced a long time ago when the line went from Battleague to Fighting Figures. The Attacktix-like game aspect is gone. It's just lil' figures with spring-loaded stuff now.

Do these things have any articulation, or are they just PVC figures?

So this isnt a game or anything right? Just spring loaded for action.

From the Ebay pics, it looks like the final version of "Attack Punch" Batman added the yellow oval on his chest. Here's the original design version they showed at SDCC; it's the classic black&grey Batman sans yellow oval:

I bought a Batman/Catwoman set off ebay to see if I would like them in person enough to keep my BBTS order or not. And the set arrived today and they are pretty cool...So I'll keep my order. I will definitely buy the Bat related figures as well as Green Lantern, Green Arrow, Aquaman figures. The Batman has 4 POA consisting of cut joints at the neck, shoulders & waist. his arms and head are rubber while his torso and lower body is hard plastic. Catwoman is all rubber and only has 2 PoA at the neck & waist. Of course I ordered the wrong set I as I wanted the blue & gray Batman because he was in a standing pose and I wanted to see if you could remove them from the bases as well as the launchers. But I can't do it with this Bats as he's staning on one foot.

I saw these in person too at a local Collectible store in Los Angeles (Big Lou's)

Definitely more Attactix than Heroclix from what I can tell...

I'll probably get any GL related ones.

I have to say though, I don't like the flying/leaping figures like Catwoman... or the flying Hal shown at Toyfair/SDCC...

I'll be getting the flying Hal when I see it as it's Hal. I'll get all Bats, Hal, Ollie & Aquaman. But I mainly want the figures that are standing with both feet on the ground.
