I get my books and stuff via Discount Comic Book Service, and the DCnU Batman was added just this week. So, I'll get him with my next shipment around the end of the month.

Anyone picking these up? I nabbed Batman for $14 at Barnes and Noble back before the DKR movie released. I saw the Aquaman at my local comic shop and thought he looked ok, but the Green Lantern had the worst painted on smile. I saw the newly released Flash today and there was something wrong with the eyes. Same old Same old for DCD QC...

My LCS never got Batman - didn't find him at Barnes & Noble, either. They got a few GLs and then a couple of Aquamen. They told me the distribution has been messed up for some reason. I'm gonna wait and get the 7-pack in November. I will probably pick up the Parademon tomorrow, if they actually have it. I dunno what's going on.

I'll just have to enjoy my new 52 DC Squinkies instead (got some at Walgreens today)

I saw the Flash at my local shop. The face looked very derpy.

What a shame this series has become...these looked really nice in prototype. :?

Almost what you could say about every book in the new 52

I disagree completely with both of you. I picked up the Parademon and it's huge and it's awesome. I will be getting the 7-pack in a couple of months, it will be cheaper and my store never got Batman anyway.

And I'm still reading plenty of the new 52 books. Some stuff has changed for the worse from before, but there is also a lot of good stuff going on.

Parademon is tempting, that's true.

That Flash is looking good,but he is smaller in size than previous DCD lines if you compare them.I will be picking up the Wonder Woman figure for sure.

Fair enough...personally I think there is a drastic difference between quality of the original sculpts and the new ones. But of course, your mileage and all that...

In hindsight, I really wish they had let Wonder Woman wear pants.

This Flash is actually larger or the same size as many of the other DC Direct Barry Allen releases. I posted a bunch of comparison pics on my site:

http://fastestfanalive.com/post/3298187 ... flashcomp2

I will say the head is a bit smaller than some of the other releases.

I have all the ones released to this point (none released "on time" of course) because I couldnt wait for the group pkg to come out. I really would like the Darkseid thats coming but for 90 bones Im a lil skidish on pulling the trigger.

I have a question in regard to the pics posted by Superfly: How do we know for certain that the Superman and WonderWoman in the retail pics are what they will look like as they arent out yet? I mean I like prototype/con Supermans colors more(they do pop) but he looks Asian. Same thing for the proto/con Flash, he appears Asian as well.
The WW, to me, is fine in either incarnation. No real preference/issue with either of them.

Have you folks seen the Green Arrow figure as yet? He looks pretty sweet to me and will be a purchase in Feb fo sho...Unless DC sticks to their current release schedule which means we wont have GA until March. Im on the fence about Baz, going to have to think about that one. No matter what his story ends up branching out to Im not sure I need a GL figure toting a firearm. :roll:

So theyve only shown us J'onn, Vibe and Katana at toyfair. I was looking forward to seeing Shazam or an updated Hawkman. Heck anyone else from the JLA for that matter! Siiiiiigh.

Vibes new outfit sure makes him look like a Spiderman clone...But J'onn and Katana look good to me.

two packs or multi-packs always have me in a quandry. I rarely want both pieces. I might have picked up Katana in her pre52 costume, but not a fan of the new one. Vibe would be a buy, but who needs another Flash? I like the new design of the Martian Manhunter, but Im happy enough with my existing one.

Also, the single figs at the LCS around here are about $23. A two pack is going to run $40 I would expect. Too much for 1 figure to display and one to put in a box somewhere.
