Anyone else get the sense those 6" Dark Knight Rises are gonna blow Mattel's MM offering out of the water?

The 6" DCD Dark Knight figures look pre-posed, a la old McFarlane product. Not the same category as Mattel's Movie Masters.

Aside from the Dark Knight Rises stuff, there really doesn't seem to be anything new in there.

A new bust line based on DCnU isn't even a surprise as they've been doing busts like that for a few years now and give it a new "spin" each year as is.

Most of that has already been seen in some form at SDCC ...

And, yeah, those Dark Knight figures seem awfully preposed to be effective action figures. Maybe they are limited articulation, maybe they are just mini plastic statues, but I can't see them being any sort of competition to Mattel's inevitable Movie Masters line as they are shown there.

Yeah I don't really see anything that I'm interested in.
