    I have the Batman one reserved at my comic shop. I'm not gonna take him outthough. He'll be one that I leave MIB to collect. I like the Two-Face aswell but not so much to get him. But I'll probably get a Bat-Villain down the line

    As a huge Wonder Woman fan:

    Way back in 2000, Mattel produced a beautiful and very well done "Barbie as Wonder Woman" doll (nothing like the awful 2004 playline addition of Wonder Woman which looked more like Wonder Girl).

    Do you think DC will include their female stars in this highly anticipated line-up or would they think collectors would not go for it because it may be to "girly"?

    If they make them (and I sure hope they do), I strongly feel these female characters should have sculpted/molded hair rather than rooted hair.

    As great as the doll looks (and I own 2 of them), I would love to see a DC version which should have an gold W 'armor' chest plate and belt (more like Alex Ross' rendition).

    Should the doll have flat boots are boots with heels?

    I like the look of them, but like most "figures" at this scale, they are just too pricey for my tastes.

    Idunno. It kinda throws me off that they're dolls. But I gotta seem 'em myself. I'll judge then.

    They look fantastic.

    Especially Supes and Aquaman.

    I pretty much feel obliged to buy that Batman. I hope he has a decent compliment of accessories. And that we see a Joker to match him.

    The Flash 13" Deluxe figure was just announced at DC's website. It looks awesome. Hopefully they will continue on until I can have the JL big seven all in 13" versions.

    I love the idea of the 1/6 figures but it's been hit and miss as far as I'm concerned. I will get the Superman Returns and the Aquaman, both of which look awsome. The classic Superman just doesn't look right to me. I may get the comicbook Batman but the Batman Begins version I will pass on. Hit and miss.

    They're really cool, but far too expensive. Maybe I'll splurge and get Superman, but other than that... :(

    They are cheap compared to other figures of equal quality.

    I'd love to have the entire JLA, or at least he big seven in this format; but they're just too expensive for me. Maybe I'll get the Trinity oneday, if I get some kind of awesome bonus from work.


    He looks great, but it looks silly for him to have gold furnishings above the belt and yellow boots below. The colour scheme needs to be consistent.

    CATWOMAN (out July 2007)
    I really thought that Wonder Woman would have been the first female figure in the series, oh well. Looks really, really cool.
