...and that's the problem the DC sub is going to face from here on out. There are too few of us completionists and too many that prefer little segments of the whole that aren't going to buy everything.

Maybe it's just the reaction to how this figure looks and not the character choice in general.


Yeah, for the most part, that's how it looks to me over there. Honestly, I'm not particularly keen on that head or those blue pants.

If this was the reaction for Constantine I would hate to see what happens when they include The Prez and Brother Power the Geek! :lol:

I'd love a Brother Power the Geek! figure. I didn't know who the Prez was but looked him up and man would that be cool too! I like obscure characters in my toy collection, I think that's what the sub should be about.

Overall, I'm glad I didn't get the sub. So far, an underwhelming figure in my mind (Atrocitus) stuff i don't care about (Black Mask, Starman) and outright junk (Rocket Red). Mirror Master looked great though. I'm going to need Ivy and Platinum! I got to get those.


I've felt the same way all along and therefore did not get the sub (except Atrocitus and Starman are two "buys" for me). The problem is, I wake up every night screaming "Metrooooonnnnnnnn..."

I'd love a Preacher set, but like most Vertigo books that didn't feature previously-established DC characters or concepts, it was a creator-owned series. Unless Mattel were to cut some kind of deal with Garth Ennis, there's no way it could happen.

I'm sure a deal with Ennis is a possibility. After all, there were the DC Direct figures way back when.
