I just saw some clearer pics of Hal/Sinestro and Nightwing/Robin on the AFI forums if anyone is interested.  They do look like some nice figures.

Most of the figures so far have looked fantastic, but I think I'm still going to just stick to the GLC stuff so I don't break the budget.   :-\

Thankfully I can be counted out.  If someone stumbles upon multiples of Sinestro, I'd take one, though the need is probably more urgent for Jeff and his GL focus.

Gah!  I will indeed be tracking down that SC version of Sinestro... I actually like it a bit more than the DCD version that is coming next fall:

WIZARD has the official pics up now of Wave 3 (that were leaked online earlier).  They have the date for these as May, but we'll see.  The whole wave looks pretty spiffy to me (Nightwing, Robin, Green Lantern, Sinestro, Deathstroke, Grundy BAF).  Man, I wish there wasn't so much great stuff from so many different lines at once this year (Star Wars, Indy, Marvel, DC, Joe, etc.).

I saw this on another forum, its a pretty nice DCUC site for those interested:

DCUC.info

It seems to have the most recent news and pics of the line, and might be a good place to keep track of what's out/coming out.

This is the first time I've seen the Solomon Grundy BAF.  Wow.  Series 3 looks fantastic.

Ok, now I really want the Solomon Grundy   :o

I love big bad ass figures and he certainly fits the bill...

Wow thats awesome. It really makes up for the small BAF in Metamorpho. I wonder if Grodd will be that big as well.

Thanks for posting that Mikey.  Wow, that looks pretty amazing.  This line is looking pretty good so far, and I'm looking forward to Wave 3 most of all at this point.  Hopefully we'll get a few more peeks beyond that at Toy Fair.

Looks like Grodd will be quite big (groan) based on the size of the piece in Harley Quinn's package there.  They did a really good job on packing that in there. 

I can see myself buying the full set for Grodd :-\  Quinn and Aquaman are fine, I'd buy them anyway.  Getting a Black Manta isn't all bad, but I'll probably trash the Superman and Firestorm figures outright. 

I think we made the comments earlier about DCUC's BAF figures - not happy about some of the figures you need to buy to get the BAF but at least these are only five piece BAFs and not 8 or 10.  I do with Metamorpho would have been a bigger figure, but at least it's still realistic in the scale it's in.  That the next couple of BAFs are much bigger is great progress.

I like wave 2, but wave 3 may be the greatest wave of action figures ever.

Seriously?  I like almost any Legends wave over DC W3.   :-X

Nightwing
Robin
Deathstroke
Green Lantern (Hal)
Sinestro
Grundy BAF

 ???

Are you channeling Jeff and his Lantern fetish? 

I love the Grundy and the Sinestro/Lantern are very well done but there have been decent figures of both before.  The Nightwing is meh and the Robin is, well, Robin.  Deathstroke is a nice figure and I don't recall a good version of that previously.
