Has anyone seen this or heard much about them? I couldn't find a thread on them and was wondering what everyone thought?

There's supposed to be 9 of them released next year and they look pretty cool.

It's nice that they come with the light-up power rings. Those cost $10 each from Graphitti Designs as it is.

I find these very tempting.

Very cool. Sigh. Now there's something else to suck me in, and syphon money from my wallet. My kids don't really need to go to college, do they?

Actually, they probably do. I sent one of mine to college this year. So I recommend the age old "pick and choose". Only buy the ones you want (and what you can afford).

I love the rainbow colored lanterns. but blue is my favorite color, so I bought the Blue Lantern Tshirt from Graphitti Designs and skipped the others.

These are not so hard, but there have been some figures I've agonized over.

I'm sure you knew it already, but I was only joking Jim. My eldest just went of to college today :cry:. I miss her already.

I will be picking and choosing with these. Hell, who am I kidding. I'll end up getting em all :lol:.

Look at it this way. It's a DC Direct product, so the odds are good they'll be delayed. We'll have more time to save money to buy these. :)

Interesting that BBTS only has 5 listed for pre-order.

Thanks for the pics from NYCC, superfriend. They look awesome lined up like that.

Congrats on your new college student, Calwin!
