I'm really curious on how Alan looks out of the box. As with others, I stopped collecting this line due to some of the less-appealing aesthetics and price, but the proto of Alan looked good.

I'm not completely out, TR. I picked up the Alan Scott, and frankly think it's one of the best 13"-ers DCD has produced. I'm not expecting any more (expecting anything from DCD only leads to heartache), but did you officially hear that the 13" line was dead, or are you speculating?

I don't doubt they'll try to crank out a GL movie figure or two, myself. I think it's too much for Georg to resist.

I was told at SDCC that after Justice Batman the line will be "resting"

I agree, Rod Keith, Alan is one of the best in the line, no doubt.

About the line 'resting,' See Julius' post above.

Despite that, it will be interesting to see what DC Direct does about the upcoming GL movie; they definitely liked making deluxe movie figures for DC movies -- Batman Begins & The Dark Knight, Superman Returns, Watchmen, Jonah Hex -- but outside of maybe Batman Begins, I don't believe any of them have been huge sellers (most have been on clearance somewhere), not when Hot Toys makes them too and not when the DC Direct body is not made for the true human proportions of movie characters (as opposed to today's unrealistic comic book characters) with the final product reflecting that. And with the upcoming Mattel blitz on the GL Movie (which seems to have more varied product that both Batman and Superman movies), DCD might just sit this one out.

I wouldn't mind seeing Mattel take a stab at a movie Hal Jordan and maybe using that as a kickoff to a 1/6 Scale DC Line.

You're absolutely right about the teen body. Why they didn't plan for even just ONE of Speedy, Aqualad, Kid Flash, Changeling, Tim Drake, Superboy or Captain Marvel Junior is beyond me, with all that R & D going into a single figure.

My LCS has not yet received this figure so I have not been able to see it in person. Can anyone who has been able to pick this up post some pics ? As a huge JSA fan I am interested in this figure but was not sure if it would be worth the purchase price.

Thanks,

John
