I was only planning on getting the classic Batman (and maybe the Penguin) but after seeing these guys in person, I had to pick them all up - which is "good" because other than the Penguin, I didn't have DCD equivalents of these characters. As usual, the 4H did a superlative job with these guys.

While I think their character selection is a bit odd, in retrospect, the line-up is genius. One super-well known hero, one well-known villian and three "cool" looking characters. Plus Metamorpho... ahem Rex Mason... as the build-a-figure is a great choice, but I especially appreciate that he's not just in "Large" form - but can be turned into a "regular figure" by leaving off the extra bits. My only complaint was his arms didn't go in that great.

I think in time, if done correctly, this line will end up being the heir to Super Powers line - if you combine the line-up with previously released 4H Superman and Batman figures to fill in for characters they probably won't re-release (Brainiac, Darkseid and Luthor) - The next few waves sound great - I can't wait to see what they have planned for Toy Fare!

Great job Mattel and 4H!

I hope they make a BAF of Darkseid, Doomsday, and Mongul. Not necessarily right away, but here and there.

Doomsday and Charaxes are my top two badguy BAF picks.

Maybe Kilowog for a hero BAF.

I really don't think we need to see Darkseid or Mongul for a long while. I'd rather get other Superman foes like Metallo (with attachable mechanical limbs/weapons in the same style as Metamorpho).

Doomsday, however, is too small. With Darkseid and Mongul it's less obvious, but Doomsday fits about as well as Joker does.

I already have the DC Direct Kilowog which is great. I want a new Doosmday and Charaxes mainly.
