so far only eBay

Hopefully they'll turn up on either the DCC site or the Graphitti Designs site soon.


Or they may hold onto them and try to get rid of the rest at NYCC...

I saw these at the Graphitti Designs booth, and I wavered because of the $25 price tag.

Then I saw the Oa display next door at the DC booth. After that, I was all in. The constructs look good, and the detail is amazing for such a small scale.

Even if the dozen figures in the display are the only ones that get made, this is going to be a great line.

Like previous comments, I wavered on getting the figures. What bothered me more than the price was that they were announced to be "con-exclusive figures." But after seeing the Oa display as well, I had to give in. I finally opened my set yesterday and so far, I really like the figures. The articulation was nice and the double knee joints was a plus. The quality of the plastic was really good and although while playing with Kyle, his leg popped off, it was easily re-attached again to the ball joint. My only gripe is with the paint they used for Kilowog's mouth. It is lined with black paint. I wish they had used a slightly darker shade of his skin to make his lips more pronounced. It appears out of place right now but over-all, isn't really a big deal. I hope the line continues and that figures will be more easily available.

snagged a set of these figures off ebay for a bit over $35 shipped, so that isn't too bad.

I've now sent a DM to Geoff Johns via Twitter, posted on the facebook pages, in the DC forums, and on some toysites as well.

Hopefully someone will listen and make these figures available to more than just Con-goers in some way, shape, or form.

I've never gotten a reply from Johns on anything. He ever reply to you?

As of the last announcement...

Kyle/Kilowog are SDCC

John Stewart/Atrocitus are NYCC

I would assume if stock hasn't sold through they will carry over from one con to the next.

They haven't made an "official" announcement concerning other shows like WonderCon, C2E2, etc.

Me, I'm still campaigning to get these made available through some venue other than Conventions. Sell them through the DC Shop site. Offer them up in Previews. The market is there, the demand is there, please don't shut so many of us out.

Bring these figures to retail! Mattel's attempt at 3 3/4" is pathetic. Mattel's small scale figures are sad compared to Marvel universe and the articulation is comparable to the knock off GI Joe toys (The Corps). Even Bandai's Power Ranger
and Thundercats small scale figures are better than Mattel's. How is it that Hasbro has so many great examples of small scale figures and Mattel still cannot get a hint? DCC has set the bar for what Mattel should strive for; with a lower price point of course.

$25 for a 2 pack of figures isn't what I consider a lower price point....

just sayin'

To clarify, I meant Mattel should strive for the sculpt and articulation that DCC put into the Green Lantern figures; and that Mattel should sell these figures at a lower price point than DCC. It is difficult to understand why Hasbro can manage to sell figures that are both child and collector aimed at a somewhat decent price, but somehow Mattel is not able to. The price that Mattel charged for the Voltron figures is crazy. The Voltron figures should cost no more than a Marvel Universe figure.

Awesome!

I've already got the Kyle/Kilowog set, but this bodes well for being able to continue collecting them.

Thanks! I knew I should have waited for this to happen instead of spending more for them at a store.

Awesome news about them being available through Graphitti's site.

Can't wait for the next set to be released at NYCC so I can add to this amazing new collection!
