I'm glad to see Vampire Batman still in the display. I'm really looking forward to him. I'm a little disappointed to see more video game figures though. Hopefully they'll get their own line separate from the comics-based figures.

Really didnt notice anything new. Most of their display is rehashing Toy Fair. Well, except that Damian and Batman Beyond are missing. I heard Damian got dumped, but I hadnt heard anything about BB not being produced. Course those were the only 2 I really wanted lol...

That "Beware the Batman" figure may be the most awful looking figure I've ever seen.

I think it is pretty accurate to the design of the show.

I don't have any plans to buy it, but I don't see what the problem is with it.

I guess I should preface it by saying I hate the way the show looks too.

Wah wah. I didn't like the smiley Michelin Man style Brave and the Bold Batman, but I didn't knock the figures over it. Even with those bloody awful gaping arm holes. The Beware figure is a welcome improvement.

Do you want a cookie for keeping your opinion to yourself then? :lol: :lol: :lol:

I'm sure I'm not the only person who will dislike some figures being revealed, or some shows being revealed. That's the nature of the beast.

I'm not a fan of either version.
But I did like the Young Justice figure of Bats.

Yes it is. I got a steal here about 2 months ago on some harder to find JLU figures. I basically stole that static shock 3 pack.

Man, so what the heck happened with this line? Blink and it's gone.

I'm a little ticked. The Unlimited stuff went on Clearance so I got excited and went to the one Target that actually has an Aquaman, Darkseid, etc and they're still $15.99! I come back this week, and they FINALLY go on Clearance and everything is gone. Just...argh. Seriously, Target, why can't you run an store wide Clearance?

Damiane Wayne gets cancelled. A Batzarro that looks like an Unlimited Line figure goes to DCIE. A Shazam that looks like an Unlimited line figure becomes a SDCC exclusive.

What a mess.

So what? Retail is just confused and wishy washy about what they want? They went to Mattel and asked for $9.99 line? or Mattel proposed it and retail falls all over it? They think Total Heroes will be more successful?

I'm a retail guy. I want to buy my stuff at retail. But they're loosing me!
