A bit on the dark side, yeah.

But I love that new design. It is truly a great update of a costume. Enough of a nod to the original, with improvements/changes that make sense and still fit the nature of the character. Wish more artists would take note of how its done when its done this effectively.

I guess it's darker than most/some versions of him, but I really like it. I'm a big fan of his and pretty close to a completist with his figs, and I like this one a lot. Though, that's probably partly just cause it's a new fig of him, and I like the design. :)

While I liked the addition of the pants, adding the swashbuckler boots back in just doesn't look right IMO. I'd much rather see a combination of the looks - keep the cape, boots, and neckpiece, and chest straps from the older "new" costume, but add the dark pants and chestpiece from the new costume, and make the cape two-toned. A nice blend of all the looks.

You make good suggestions there. Is it already a moot point? Look at the cover to Stormwatch #2:

I've picked up all of Wave 1 except for Deadman. Martian Manhunter and Firestorm were my Wave 2 pickups. Eventually, I'd like to go back and pick up the remaining figures from the first two waves, after I get Hawk and Dove from Wave 3.

I'd really like to see a wave 4 announced with a Swamp Thing with the White lantern logo on its chest.

Does someone have the list of the sculptors for series 1 & 2 ?

Moreover, has series 3 been released yet, because I haven't seen it in my LCS.

Thanks a lot! :D

DC Direct's own site no longer shows specific dates for wave 3 figures, but they are included in the section of "shipping this month".

The sculptors are usually listed on the back of the packaging. Mine is long since been recycled so I can't help you out sorry

Why did you want to know?

I am actually passionated about sculpture and knowing about the sculptor's work, background is one of the things I'm interested about in collecting.

Well, thanks in advance to anyone that can help me out! :D
