Anybody liking the new Justice figures? Sort of in the same vein as the Kingdom Come figures as they are by Alex Ross, but classic looks instead of futuristic ones of Kingdom Come. I think they are on wave 5 or 6 and they look amazing. I wish I had money for all of them, dammit

I haven't seen these ones yet. DC just keep cranking out the direct figures, don't they? Marvel's "Select" ones never seem to sell - I swear I could go to about 3 comic shops and have a full run of them (except Thanos - I bought the only one I've ever seen).

I have no DC direct figures, but the Dark Knight, Kingdom Come and Hush lines all had me drooling. I'll have to check out these latest versions.

On a somewhat related note, the stuff they put out at WM and whatnot is NOT very good.... I wonder why they can't seem to put any good stuff out for the retailers? All the Superman Returns and Batman Begins stuff blew goats, and made it to clearance - and the little animated jobbies just don't grab me.

That Cyborg Superman looks sweet.

I got Red Arrow and Vixen from the Justice League series on Wednesday. I mean to get Black Lightning and Canary later on. I can skip Superman cause he looks like a nerd.

Local comic shop was having a 60% off sale, so I splurged and bought Supernova and Animal Man from the 52 wave, Blue Beetle and Martian Manhunter from the 1st appearance wave, and Hourman from the JSA wave.

Got the new JLA Black Lightning today. Also got a Donna Troy in her "starry" black costume.

I buy too many toys...

Picked up the Kubert Batman and Joker from the Batman and Son line. Very nice. I was going to get Robin and Damian, but three figures in one week is too pricey. Even for a Hollywood bigshot such as myself.

I'm not too keen on the idea of Batman's son being anything but an abstract concept that may or may not be in continuity. Especially if he's named Damien or Mordred.

Yeah, I expect more from Morrison. But now it looks as if the kid might be a genetically created clone which I hate more than anything. If you're going to bite the bullet and say that Batman nailed Talia and had a Batbaby, fine. But for god's sake, that's A LOT of material ripe for exploring. Embrace it and go for it. Instead of this pussyfooting they are doing now.

It's Jason Todd all over again.

I wonder why DC Comics never borrowed from the DCAU. Batman should be cloned. However, the clone shouldn't be born until about forty years in the future, and his name should be Terry McGuiness.

They never picked up on Andrea "Phantasm" Beaumont, either, despite her being one of the few good additions to Batman's origin story since the reboot in the 80s.

I guess these DC figures are 3 3/4 inch.
When they decided to do smaller figures why didn't they scale down the boobies?
Damn, are these from 90's comics?

From what I've seen, this chick has a massive rack anyway:
