NOOOOOOOO!!! It was so much cheaper for me to complain about not being able to get them than it is to have to buy these awesome figures for a reasonable price (considering the small distribution)!

NOOOOOOOOO!!!! Take them away so I can be mad again!

And make Penguin, Brainiac, Riddler, and Ra's for this line while you're at it.

Very cool! Thanks for letting us know! I jumped all over that like a crazy man!

Now, $32 is way more than I wanna pay for little DC figs, but I love them too much to pass. And 16 bucks per figure is way better than what the GI Joe Club wants for their sub figures, which come out to 25-30 bucks each, and it's also better than the $50 BBTS was charging for this set.

And they are also way cheaper than the DC Infinite Heroes 3-pack figures at the end of the line.

The DC Collectibles fb page just re-posted the pic of the Oa playset asking us to comment with our thoughts on the line in general.

If you want these figures and the playset, LET 'EM KNOW!

If you want these figures but don't like that their limbs fall off, LET 'EM KNOW!

Got my set today! Very cool - not worth what I had to pay for it, better than Ebay though - but I love to see DC toys like this in stores, even if it's just comic stores. Preferably it would be everywhere.

I broke down and bought the set, just because I don't want to be without Kyle and Kilowog if this line happens to take off with Batman, Superman, and the like.

I'm fairly impressed. I know it was reported elsewhere that people have had issues with Kyle breaking right out of the box, and while I normally avoid these kinds of problems, mine followed suit - his bicep swivel came unattached right as I took him out. I was able to reattach it, but the movement is hindered now. Oh, well - I don't play with these things, so I'll deal.

Hopefully, we get some news about the rest of the GL figures at NYCC - and, with any luck, a new reveal or two. The Star Sapphires, Sinestro Corps (and Sinestro himself!), and Indigo Tribe were notably not represented, so if the line moves forward, I half-expect to see Sinestro, Arkillo, Carol, Fatality, Indigo-1, and Munk among the next shown...which only pushes the greater DC Universe back.

If DCC were smart, they'd start mixing in characters from other corners of the DCU ASAP - I think the buy-in would be greater if people weren't scared this was going to be an all-GL line.

I too caved in and picked up this pack. Im not a huge GL fan and,oddly enough, dont like the rainbow Laterns at all lol But like MoMoney, I dont want to miss out on Kyle and Kilowog(I do like these two as well as Guy and Hal) should this line end up going jumping into the DCU more. That Oa playset is killer and should that come out I will need a few GLs to go with the set.

Any other rumors or rumblings beyond these and NYCC?

I caved and picked them up as well-- and typical DC direct-- legs popped off of Kyle the first time I opened him-- at least unlike the 6" figures-- they pop back on- instead of ripping at the joint never to be whole again..

Not sure why no one is talking about the NYCC pack of John and Atrocitus, but this already seems like it will be easier to get.

The set is listed on Graphitti's site already with a "coming soon" tab (so is the Aardman Batman but that's for another thread) and will, I assume, go live once the show is over and done with.

Hopefully, this set and the previous SDCC set have shown enough demand to convince the powers that be at DCC that we need a more comprehensive DC 3.75" line and we need it NOW!

Frankly, I wasn't over the moon with the SDCC set.

I'll get John/Atrocitus if I happen to have free cash when they're available...and if I remember them. But I'm kinda over DC in general at the moment and definitely over the GL universe in particular. I would only be getting these guys just in case this thing blossoms into a DCU toy line one day. And the mindset of "there might come a day where I'll wish I'd bought this" isn't enough to excite me about them now.

I'm right there with Sean: GL is NOT the licence to go with, here. Kyle was a welcome addition to my DCIH ranks, but they'd do better to give us a Batman pack for the second go- round. A decent 4" Joker, a Penguin, Riddler, or even Bane ( to do a movie tie- in) packaged with an awesome Batman would have been a no-brainer for me to pick- up. Instead, another GL that I already have? An easy pass for me.

A word of advice to those going to NYCC to pick up John Stewart and Atrocitus...
Go to the Graphitti Booth EARLY and get your wristband to reserve this set. You can go back later if they are crowded and pick up your figures.

If they run out of the daily quota of wristbands, you will not be able to get the NYCC exclusives if you do not have one. Come back on another day or buy them online later.

NYCC News:

DC Collectibles 3 3/4" figures, the story so far...
Theses figures will continue to be convention exclusives in 2013. DC is watching how well they sell.

They would eventually like to offer them on a regular basis like the 6" figures, and a playset, but this probably will not happen until 2014.

Fine with me if you all want to keep off to the sides.

Just makes it that much easier for me to get them :wink: Thanks.
