Here is to hoping the line does take off & we get all the Flash rogues too.


Yeah, I looked and looked in the discount stores for those guys but never found them. And the Ebay prices are crazy. I guess they are just pretty damn scarce. There are a few figs I still want I never found (gold Cap Atom, Superman prime in black) which sell for okay prices and someday I will pick up - I had hoped that would be the case with the last two 3-packs but that is not the case at all.

Even though this line had it's weaknesses, I still loved it and am sad people bash on it and praise JLU - I collected both (still am for JLU I guess), but I liked this line better. That puts me in the minority, but I don't care.


Im with you Bcya. I was hoping for another New Teen Titans se with Donna Troy, Beast Boy and Tempest.

I was lucky enough to have all the figures and was hoping for some more. I want to see how well scale wise the Kyle and Kilowog set match up with my DCIH GL figures.

It was a fun line in my opinion. Still wished they released those prototypes we saw with Black Manta, Hawkgirl, Harley and Cassandra Cain Batgirl.

Those gold Captain Atoms were peg warming at Marshalls for a while. You might get lucky if you find a store that doesn't get as much traffic.

True. I mean, they still have the Doomsday 6 pack at the Herald Square Toys R Us.

Really cool pic! I got my GL 2-pack from ebay. Of course it will last like forever until it arrives here, so when any of you guys get your ser, remeber to post some pics here, please :mrgreen:

It was said that if the first packs sell well (wich looks like it sold) they could make it to comic shops. I bet we'll be able to get a lot of these in the next year :wink:

I have an extra Gold Captain Atom unopened if you want it.

I'm going to NYCC so I can probably help a few people out but I need a Kyle and Kilowog pack.

DCIH is still my favorite line. It was a lot of work but I was able to get every released figure except for Black Superman Prime and Spectre I think. Spectre was pretty easily available, I just still don't have him! And that Best Buy Wonder Woman release. Don't have that.

I would so gladly take you up on your offer for a GL pack from NYCC. I'm getting my SDCC GL pack off eBay unfortunately :(

Thanks

They need to stop with the green lanterns and get to the good stuff. I can't wait to see what they do with supes, Batman, Diana, or even Aquaman and Mera. Hawkman and Hawkgirl would also be GREATLY appreciated. :D Although I'll happily take the rainbow lantern characters if they'll bring them out. Especially the reds.

Here´s a link to the new 3.3/4 inch figures starting with a comparison with IH. They´re totally compatible (of course the new ones look way better, IMO):

The difference is Mattel did Kyle as Parallax. I would rather have him as Kyle. Kilowog looks to pink to me. I suppose that would be an easy fix.

I'm infatuated with that Oa playset. Shut up and take my money, DC Collectibles.

This was already posted in another thread, but just to share: Graphitti Designs has the Kyle/Kilowog pack for $25 + shipping HERE.

As I said on the other thread, it was cheaper for me to complain about not getting these figures, but that quality combined with the small distribution makes $25 pretty fair in my mind. I just couldn't resist. Maybe I'll get lucky and have something else to complain about tomorrow.

Right out of the box the figures had very tight joints, and in the process of loosening them up for posing the right arm of Kyle snapped off at the bicep. The post inside his upper arm joint is very small and if too much stress is placed on the joint it can break.



Looks Like DC Direct didnt change any of their manufacturing practices to me.
