I don't understand why this Constantine point is still being argued. Had he not had a movie, I would never have even heard of him. I don't care how many issues his comic had, or how well the movie did. He just didn't exist to me until the movie. Even then, I had no idea he was a DC/Vertigo character. I'm not saying that he sucks. I'm just saying that he's in the same classification as characters like Kamandi, Cyclotron and Killer Moth. Wait. Maybe I am saying that he sucks. :wink: Seriously though, I think I'll swing by my LCS and pick up a book of his. Maybe after that my opinion will change.

Honestly, it amazes me to see again how close-minded a fandom can be. It's their way or the highway never mind what other people want. I don't like something, therefore it sucks and does not exist no matter what evidence proves otherwise.

Go google top 100 comic book character of all time and Constantine is in the top 20 of most every single list even ones voted on by fans. He beats nearly every DCUC character to date except some of the bigger ones like Batman, Joker and Superman and that is a fact.

Doesn't matter, figure is getting made and I for one am happy about it. I'll just leave it at that, shouldn't have mentioned it I guess.

They announced Flash for this year. Don't think Constantine beats him. And no one cares if comic books geeks voted him in the top 20 of some random list. Most people don't know him, just like Alcinde said.

$230 million worth of movie goers would disagree with you.

Haha whatever man. I'm so glad we're getting the best and most popular comic book character ever in the sub this year. I can't wait to quintuple my money on eBay when I sell both of mine, since he's so loved.

I know!!! Crazy huh with such well known characters in popular culture such as Mirror Master, Black Mask, Starman, Atrocitus, Uncle Sam and the rest of this years characters that is an amazing feat. Why any of them don't have their own series or feature film just baffles me.

I do wish all of those characters could get movies and books I've never heard of!

:roll: you're so droll j1h15233. Besides the Vertigo books are probably a bit beyond you. That's okay though, they have DC Adventures for you.

Just go back to Dr Whoever or post some more pictures of the stolen figures you get from eBay. Youre certainly not helping this cause at all. Me though, I'm doing just fine with my real DC heroes.

I know right? I wish I could be as educated and cultured as the rest of you. Please enlighten me on a chain smoking guy in a trenchcoat! He must be amazing!

In before the lock. I'm sorry I helped contribute to this thread devolving...

As a long time lurker here, I have to say, you guys are fun ;-p


Anyway, I have always been a DCUC cherry picker... I have a LOT of them, but not every single figure.

I subbed this time.. I didn't for 2012, and I wish I had... though I am not sad that I didn't have to buy Starman.

I subbed for Saint Walker, Phantom Stranger, Larfleeze, and the HOPE that Mera and Huntress make it into the 2013 sub.

I don't really care about Mallah and the brain... though it will be cool to have them when I get them.

That's something I feel lucky about... I don't always love a figure, but if I see it, and find out the character's backstory, it's just more fun for me than deciding I am going to hate a figure and not get to know anything about it.

The only figure that upsets me is Wally West Flash... I mean, really? I GET why they need to put him in... he's probably already made, he's cheap to produce, etc. etc.
