Just read this on the main page:
http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/main/dcd-bd-flash-figures-for-sale

So now it looks very likely that the Brightest day White Lantern Flash and White Lantern Batman will NOT be the DC Direct/Graphitti exclusives at SDCC or NYC.

So what will be the bracelet/lottery ticket hell induced figures?

I'm going to guess 1 will be an Arkham City variant.

And how about DC Direct steals a little bit of Mattel's trhunder and re-issues Swamp Thing as a white and or Black Lantern???

That sucks they sold out of Batman. I have been checking and checking their site. Well, at least I got an order for the Flash in.

The prices on Ebay for these go from ridiculous to beyond insane. Maybe DC Direct should have not listened to the bitchers and sold these in general release?

Damn $20? That seems extremely low is it not? I think I'm going to order 2 right now before they are gone.

Yeah... I missed out on the Batman too. I was counting on them being at SDCC also (and they still MIGHT be, but I've also heard not) I picked up a Flash from GD.

Are there any (shareable) rumors as to what their "official" SDCC figures will be?

I heard possibly 1 being a blue lantern Kyle (easy repaint), but that might just be wish list speculation.

I don't understand. Are we supposed to feel sorry for you because you can't scalp the figure for as much as you want?

If you didn't want it, why didn't you just let somebody who did buy it? A capitalist venture? It's not fun to constantly feel like we're fighting against fellow collectors.

I think you are jumping to conclusions. If you re-read his post all he says is that he wants his money back for the figure. Exactly what he paid. He is saying he has buyers remorse.

There aren't boogy-men hiding in every shadow buying up your toys. We've all bought something that we regretted later. This is no different.

Interesting take on my comment. Julius is very close to the mark. I was at NYCC, covering the event for AFi. http://www.actionfigureinsider.com/blog ... rg-brewer/ Julius asked me to get one for him. I was in line and everyone in front of me was getting 2. I got swept up in the moment and got 2 as well, with no plan for the 2nd. Its been sitting around my house ever since.

Someone else had a more practical take on my comment. They asked me if I really wanted to part with it. Hopefully it will have a new home soon where it is more appreciated!

Sorry dude. I think it was your use of the word "sitting", which made me think of "somebody sitting on a gold mine" or something like that. I can understand getting caught up in the moment waiting in a big ass line.

I like the White Lantern Hal, was happy I could get it. Maybe I was just bitter that White Lantern Batman is MIA.

First time they are offering the character (and a major character at that) and it is as a Con Exclusive. Figures.

If anyone happens to get a 2nd one... :wink:

Considering that the 4 white lanterns have all been available after the shows at Graphitti Designs' website, I would not be too worried about getting it on site.

ps. They have made Zoom before. JLA Classified wave 3.

Yeah, McGuinness styled and Awesome. But I still "need" one that is in a more generic style as opposed to one that is that heavily artist-inspired.

Thanks for the reminder about Graphitti's website sales. Its not a regular stop for me on the interwebs and I had completely forgotten about checking it out for this figure.
