This first set will be con only though right? Or will they offer Kyle and Killowog online if the response is good enough?

LINK


Besides the facebook page for DC Collectibles

You can also go the Twitter route:
@geoffjohns and @DCCollectibles were the links I just sent my vote to.

This line has me more excited than any other toy news coming out of the con so far.

I truly TRULY hope that DC starts to offer these figures on their site, through Previews, subscription, whatever.

It would be a huge miscarriage for them to limit these to con-goers only.

Change out the accessories if necessary, offer them single carded instead of in 2 packs, whatever, just vote NO to "Con Only"

(maybe we need to get a "movement" started over this like we did to save JLU ...)

And he said they're talking about ways they can get the playset to market. As you may have guessed, they can't get it to "cost out" (You're going to hear that phrase a LOT these days, kids). If they put it out right now as it is it would cost over two hundred dollars. They're thinking about possibly releasing it in pieces, a little at a time or in resin like a statue.

Can we ask what the deal is with Arkham?

Are we going to see more waves, or just deluxes?

All I need to know. Thanks! :)

They had a video pop up on their facebook page which included some info about stuff that was shown, but of which no pictures were allowed.

Green Arrow is coming for the Justice League 6 inch line. I wonder what happened to Hawkman, of which a prototype was shown at NYCC last fall.

Once again, we have DC Direct and Mattel making the same characters in the same scale almost on top of each other.

Any chance we could see a pic of it? Preferably next to something 3 3/4 inch in size?

Man, I hate that. Mattel had their chance with that scale, but blew it because they refused to give collectors what they wanted: a toy line comparable to Marvel Universe in sculpt and articulation. And now a potentially great line by DC Collectibles has to be con exclusive for whatever various reasons? Lame.
