Thanks for the link. I gotta say that figure does look nice, too bad they can't give them better articulation. But I get why they don't because they are for the younger crowd I guess.

For me, the thing that gets me more than anything else is the lack of knees. Shoulder, elbow, waist, hips, knees, and neck should be the minimum. Yeah, DCIH 1.0 was limited, but for kids, you could make them run, punch, and do a half-way decent flying pose. At 3.75", that's a decent toy, even if it's not as poseable as MU. At the same time, all the articulation on MU makes many of those figures feel like they'll fall apart any minute.

I wouldn't collec any new line with 5 points of articulation. Anything with the same amout of articulation of the first waves of IH (10 points) would be fine.

Three toy lines united!...

Image

Sad to say, I have not become a faithful convert to the DC Collectibles 3.75 inch line. They're too breakable, they're too expensive, and not easy to acquire (shipping costs!). A truly great 3.75 inch DC line should be a retail line and made with the more durable plastic that Mattel uses.

And sad to say, the GL 4-inch figures have not not endeared through time. I get grouchy when I look at them. The trouble I went through to find them in stores, on ebay, and the high prices I paid for them before they were put on Clearance for a couple bucks. Even though i have Salaak, I'm thinking...I don't need them.

I'm STILL keeping my DCIH collection. I still love them!

I'm thinking of picking up that Larfleeze/Gardner pack at C2E2 but I don't know...I don't know if i'm invested in it anymore. If I knew they are for sure releasing the Bleez, That would be cool but they are a bit pricey.

I am looking forward to getting the IM3 figures. They are 5 POA and $5.99. For that price they will look good in a Hall of Armor display. The only other use I have for low price 5 POA is for customs.

Thanks for the heads-up! I'll keep my eye out at my own TM!

Thanks Joe. I'm pretty sure those are the only DCIH figures I'm missing. I'll have to check today to see if they are there.

They've already started turning up. I saw a wave of them at Midtown Comics in NYC.

I wouldn't mind getting a Superman and maybe a Zod for the new Superman line. I'll make the decision once I see them @ a store.

I saw them at Wal-Mart today. They made me sad. :( They have elbow articulation but no knee. It sucks to think that toys are now worse than they were just a few years ago. They had 5 different Supermen and 1 Zod.

These and the Iron Man 3 figures are both major bummers.

I don't get the no knee articulation thing AT ALL. What is this, 1980? (1984 if you're a Secret Wars fan, but still...)
