I am thinking of picking them up. The AC Joker Thugs look awesome, so I will probably start with them, then Catwoman, and work my way down the lines.

I've wanted to start this series for a while noe but have focused more on the TDKR movie masters. Now that I've completed that one I can move over to AC. I did pick up the deluxe Mr. Freeze at my local comic shop for $35 and I like it a lot.

I'm about done with MM and am focusing on this line currently. My comic book store only had Catwoman, Mad Hatter, and Hush. I have all three of those. Finishing up AC should be easy but AA is going to be quite expensive!

Really $35 for Freeze? Where did you find that? I saw him and wanted him very bad but couldn't justify the $50 price tag.... when he looked no bigger than the other figures....

I have been buying these figures since they hit the shelves....

Alot of the batmans could have been replaced by a better figure :/

How does a figure like Bane become so valuable? I realize almost all of the AA figures go for a lot, but none are anywhere near Bane except for maybe Joker w/ Scarface. Were there not many Bane figures produced?

I believe that the same amount of each figure was made. Bane was just a much more popular figure than the others, especially because he is humongous! More bang for the buck.

It makes no sense for there not to be a Hugo Strange. Especially since they made those Joker gang members. Replace those two lame figures with Strange and Talia.

Actually they made figures for both. Two-Face is packaged with Batman and Nightwing is in Legacy packaging.
