Ok dumb question but ummmmm could Mattel use the Frank Miller Batman parts to make Lead instead of Darksied arms and legs? I mean Maybe even use other parts of the buck. I do not mind the different styles of Batman but I wish they would run a theme and give some other major characters in the same style.

First impressions: the figures look good. I'll probably wind up buying all of them. However, would have loved to see a Talon / Thomas Wayne Jr. Figure, or an Elseworlds Bats of some sort. The Breyfogle Batman: Holy Terror is still one of my favorite Bats designs...but that one getting made is a long shot.

The DKR figure makes perfect sense with the animated movie coming out this year.

TDKR Batman looks great, and I wonder if we'll get the TDKR Robin to go with him eventually. I'm also surprised we're getting a 2nd Bat-Mite with a different headsculpt rather than just a repack/repaint of the existing Kmart version.

DKR Batman looks like he's using a MOTUC body.

I think it is a little too late in the game to make Lead out of the Frank Miller Batman parts. You are talking about a complete reworking of the figure plan. Besides, if they did use the Dark Knight Rises Batman parts, Lead would no longer be "oversized" and a lot of subscribers would be a little upset at paying $30 for a figure that shares the majority of its parts with a $19 retail standard figure (and I'm sure the Day of Sales buyers would feel even more cheated paying $45).

Then again, if they used a Masters of the Universe Classics He-Man buck to make the Frank Miller Batman, maybe technically he would be oversized!

18.99? This line is dead before it started.

I NEED THAT WONDER WOMAN. Am I the only one who thinks this figure is perfect looking? My goal is to get all the DCUC 52 versions of the characters. What do we have coming already, Batman, Superman, Flash, Batgirl, Wonder Woman, Hawkman? Sounds good to me.

ugh... :roll: game designs are so horrible



for sure!!!!


Price point is too high, especially considering they're mostly kit bashed. Looks like every other batman figure. Superman is cool but his belt hanging on his crotch is not, it needs to be at his waist but articulation causes this belt to drop. I'm sticking with DC Collectibles on the new 52. The metallic version of supes in the unlimited line sucks. Can't decide which version of batman looks better the all stars version or the unlimited redeco. But i have always been a fan of aesthetics over articulation so obviously DCC is more attractive and more accurate for me. Are these gonna be sold in big box retail?

Wonder Woman looks perfect. She and Planet X Batman are preordered.

TDKR and Injustice Batman? Not so much.

Nope, that's not a MOTUC body but I can see it being re-used for a DKR Superman in a wave or two. It's really too bad that they didn't hold off on Lead until this body was available...

Ugh! I had the exact same thought about Lead! As excited as I am to have the Metal Men, I'm a little sad his scale is so jacked up!

My tru is pricing marvel legends at $22.99, so $18.99 seems like a bargain! ;)

Pre-ordered all of these through BBTS, just as I did wave 1 and DCUC wave 21. I just don't trust retail to support any of Mattel's DC lines anymore, so I'm not taking a chance on missing any of these. I'll be shocked if I ever see DCUC wave 21 in stores.

I dunno, Jim - those legs and arms definitely look like they belong to the MOTUC line.

The torso is either totally different or heavily modified, though.
