I want that Kyle, but I feel like getting is a tipping point to just having all the Kyles. :?

I've got the the TJ, JLA, Hard Light Hologram JLA, JLA 12", the original DCD, and I kinda want this one and the BN one. Then I'd have to track down the 2 Pocket Heroes and the Dog Collar DCD. :lol:

I'm not the biggest fan of the McG stuff, but I have a few... Kryptonite Batman, Batzarro, Batwoman, Martian Manhunter... I think that's all. Superwoman maybe?

I have such a love/hate affair with DCD.

Every time I see that Hawkman, I wish it had been done in the right scale. It is so beautiful, but so off.

Agreed on all counts!

I can't say I feel the same pain since I didn't get heavy into the McG figures, but yeah, giant Hawkman. Ouch!

Hawkman is totally out of scale, so I hear you guys, but.....for some reason, on this one, it doesn't bother me.

I guess it's partly because all these figs have that super buff style. And in certain scenarios, like this one, I have weird idiosyncratic reasoning = although Thanagarians are human size, I just think of him as huge cause he's an alien, and that works for me on this one. So my McG figs live in their own little universe, only displayed with each other, and in this unique action fig DC universe, Hawkman is huge cause he's an alien, and the scale doesn't bug me. :D

My understanding is that they based Hawkman on the Martian Manhunter sculpt, which was larger to begin with. Somehow in final translation from sculpt to steel mold, it got even larger.

Yeah, the massive Hawkman really doesn't bother me either. It actually seems to "work" in some odd sort of way.

not posable at all and her head looks terrible
its like a persian cat, flat faced
she's forced looking downward

i was hoping to replace my dc direct first appearences batgirl, cause i thought she sucked
but she's way better than this one!
i would get dcsh batgirl but she goes for $70 loose!
