I'm still doing well avoiding DC direct.  I think I've come to the realization that most of what I want would be feeding directly into my fanboy persona ::) and I don't think the wife is going to be inept enough to not pick up on that.   :-[  Zatanna, Black Canary, Catwoman,...   Oh sure, I'd like to have a Green Lantern and a Green Arrow too, but let's be realistic here.

So, what you're saying is you'd be VERY interested in the upcoming Catwoman from the Knightfall line-up with her very big... hair.  :-X

And boots nearly up to her ass?  Nah, there's no appeal there. 

Uh, where can I order one?   :-X

Yeah.  I think it was last month's Toyfare that had the DC direct preview.  There were lots of nice figures in there (double entendre intended) and I was scoping out the DC Direct figures at stores here.  But they're about $20 a piece and most of the um, nicer, figures you need to preorder to even have a shot at.  Since that leaves stores stuck with the dregs from a case, they only sell them as sets here.  Can't say I blame them. 

I'll go through the Toyfare later to see which figures interested me just so I can mollify the fanboy image, if only a little.   ::)

ToyFare is not intended for "reading" in the bathroom.   :-X

At the risk of further ridicule....

I took a gander over at wizarduniverse and here are the figures that interest me right now:

Justice League Flash


Aquaman and Black Canary


Hawkman


Green Arrow


Zatanna :P


Batgirl


Joker


Thrillkiller Batgirl :o


The classic silver age stuff is really nice too, but far too pricey for me to get into it as a side line click me to look

I'd also probably pick up a Hal Jordan GL figure to round it out.

My DC days were about equal to my Marvel days early on.  I've mentioned before when we got shuttled off to the cabin at the lake (Aunt and Uncle's place) on rainy days we'd read comics.  I had my hands on a massively beaten copy of Amazing Fantasy 15 at the time too (cover gone, numerous ripped pages).  It was later on that I really got more into Marvel in my late teens.  But I got a ton of joy out of DC comics in the early years and those characters were some of my favorites (Catwoman included).

Well, I caved in and ended up picking up a DC Direct Kilowog for two reasons.

Well, this is a little off topic...and belongs in the Justice League thread most likely, but with the Green Lantern talk earlier I thought I'd post it here.  I don't know if you saw Jeff (or are even interested), but there is a Green Lantern 3 pack coming up in the Justice League Unlimited line from Mattel.  Like I said, not sure if you care, but thought I'd post it just in case.  I'm a fan of this show, and have a few of the figures, so I happened to come across this in the coverage (from Julius Marx).

Oh yeah, I'll definately be adding that one to my Green Lantern Shrine.   ;)

Thanks for pointing it out Brian, I had missed that news at SDCC!

Looks like there is a Green Lantern Series 2 on the way from DC Direct as well. :)

Yeah, that was great news from SDCC!  I can probably pass on the Shark (I hate when they "re-interpret" Silver Age villians ::)) and the Manhunter as I've skipped bost of the villians (except for Sinestro). 

As for the GLs included in this wave, I'll probably pass on Guy Gardner too (unless he's in the Yellow Ring Costume) because I've got the previous "bowl-cut" version they made.  Salakk though, now that's what I'm talking about!



 ;D

I hope that 5th figure turns out to be another alien GL- Chaselon, Katma Tui, or Abin Sur maybe?   :)

Fine, I will go start my very own Green Lantern thread

And I'll check to see if I have an extra one stashed still...

DC Direct is starting a 13" figure line that I am going to collect:

Pricepoint is $59.99 each, but I'm sure they will be available for less through secondary sellers. They're awesome!
