Well I bought my first DC Direct figure. I'm not a huge fan of these figures due to the limited articulation. However sometimes I noticed they come with cool extras!

So I bought The Flash and Kid Flash Cosmic Treadmill set for the treadmill! I should have it in a few days.

I'm also bidding on a John Constantine. So maybe if I win him it'll make me get off my arse and pick up a Swamp Thing!

Congrats. I am currently liberally mixing DC Direct and Mattel's DCUC to build an expansive DCU in roughly the same scale. The great thing is that the two companies each have a diverse selection of characters that complement each other.

I mix in a lot of the DC Direct GL characters (Kryb, some of the Black Lanterns, a few of the alien GL's, etc.), and a few other types (the Despero from a few years ago, Circe).

I don't buy that many heroes, though, as I figure DCUC will get around to most of them. My collection is dominated by DCUC, however (about 90%).

Of course, I buy just about all of the Aqua-related DCD figures and have amassed a decent collection of those (including Mera, Garth, Aqualad, Ocean Master, and of course a dozen or so Aquamen). My only chance of ever getting a Tula, Aquagirl, or Fisherman probably relies on DC Direct (and the odds are still pretty slim at that).

They do work well together.I fill in my holes with DCU,but I am forever a DCD guy.Scuplts and paint used are superior IMO.I display only, so articulation means nothing to me.

I display as well but I like more dynamic poses then what DCD offers. I like changing the posed scenes up on occasion.

Wow. I forgot how cool that Treadmill is as a display piece.
I'm going to have to dig mine out of storage.

It looks a bit small for the DCUC figures though. I bet it will work great with my JLU and Young Justice figures though. Or maybe even the Infinite Heroes that I have ...

Don't cut the Flash ring short either. I've found myself wearing it out on the town many times. Love this set.

That was a great set! That and the Silver Age Batman 2-packs were fantastic.

Don't ask me what Aqualad is pointing to.
