I picked up the "Superman through the ages" gift set this week at my local comic shop.  A pretty cool set for any Superman fan!

Just picked up Shazam and Zatanna today, nice figures and I'm happy to have them, but they're the least impressive of the Ross figures.  Paint is a bit sloppy, something I haven't had much of a problem with in past.  Zatanna is basically rolling her eyes in perpetuity. 

I also set aside the angry version of Superman from Series one.  No idea where the guy got it, but I'll pick it up next time I'm in.  And yeah, I'll open it :-*

Just checking on anyone's thoughts on the recent Batman figure from the Crisis line.  I just picked it up and it's a pretty nice figure, but it's also a bit of a disappointment.  Lately DC has been doing a number of "artist specific" figures, where they're sculpted to match the style of the artist.  Generally I'm not a fan of this, but I'm a big George Perez fan so I thought it would be cool to have a batman figure done in his style.  From the promo pics I thought the figure looked pretty nice, so I ordered it.
Well, if it weren't sold as a Crisis (Perez) batman then I would really like it.  But it looks nothing like a Perez batman - especially the head sculpt.  Also (and I don't know if I just have a mispaint), on the promo pics and the box they show Batman having the black shading or whatever it is on his head.  In my figure, the head is all blue.
Has anyone else picked this up or seen it?  Is mine a mispaint, or did they produce them like that?

Andrew, I still haven't seen the Crisis Batman, so still can't comment. 

Found this pic of Alex Ross' Justice League Series 6:



Does this look NOT like Ross work to anyone else?

Finally glad to see this wave get solicited...



I will gladly be buying all 4 figures for the GL shrine.   ;D

Man, I hope they get to a Sinestro Corps version of Superboy/man-Prime and the Anti-Monitor too... amybe even that "new Ion guy as well.  :)

Are those DC Direct series or part of the Alex Ross lineup?  I'm guessing the former, but just for clarification.

No, not Alex Ross.  They are DC Direct's Green Lantern: Series 3 wave.

That sinestro is awesome.

I recently picked up the Batman and Joker from the DC Direct "Batman and Son" series.  Very nice.  I keep saying I'm not buying any more Batman figures, but then they keep putting out ones that really impress me.  Damn willpower.  I don't seem to have any.

I must confess that I spent over 30 minutes at the DC Direct showroom... and more than half of that was playing with the GL3 figures:



I hadn't heard yet that Sinestro was coming with Despotillis, the sentient virus from the SC.  Very cool!

Plus, I was totally digging the new "GLC" based 12" figure -



It comes with four different heads!  It's going to be hard not to just buy 4 of hem and display them all...  :-\

EW.com has photos of two of the upcoming Watchmen figures, Rorschach and Nite Owl.

They'll be previewing them and two others at NYCC this weekend.

Damn, that black canary looks to be a great base for a mockingbird custom.  These are sold as a 4-pack?  Anyone interested in the Batman & G'nort figs?
