I'm so torn on this one.  It looks awesome, and there's a ton of time to save for it.  But, as noted it will likely be around $300.  And adding customs charged to bring it into Canada will probably push it to $350.

That's Huntress.  And I'm so happy I DID subscribe!!!

I get the idea of the subscriptions.  They want to ensure they have a baseline in sales so that they don't take a loss on product that they can't move.  But I agree that the implementation is wrong. 

Not everyone wants every figure, so having to commit to 12 figures (especially when you don't know what all 12 are up front) is difficult for many.  I've got the DC sub again for next year, but I'm long time DC fan who knows most of the obscure characters, so I'm ok with it.  I think it would be better if they could let people know about all 12 up front, or have subs for 4 or 6 figures at a time instead of 12. 

MOTU is my first toy line that I collected as a kid.  My older brothers had SW, so I had a bunch of those.  But MOTU was the first line that I bought myself.  I loved the 20XX line when it came out and hunted most of them down, and I have the bulk (60-70%) of the MOTUC line.  But I don't want it all.  I got the first sub they did (4 months or so), but didn't get the sub last year, and I don't plan on it this year.  I like most of the figures I've seen, and think that Greyskullman is actually pretty cool.  Hopefully the line continues, but I just can't justify the commitment up front.

Yeah, I had no problems ordering.  I got stinkor, and finally got man-at-arms after missing out the first 2 times.

hmm, forgot about them.  I'm pretty happy with how they have been rounding things out.  But a few that I would love to see in the sub are Huntress, Niles Caulder (to round out the doom patrol), aqualad, Vixen, Scarecrow (classic - the yellow lantern one doesn't count), Killer Croc, Ra's Al Ghul and a new Doomsday.

Just placed this months order - and I was happy to nab an Orko.  I got one when they first came out after SDCC, but that one is staying carded.
I hope they re-release Man-at-arms again soon, as he is one of the core figures that I missed during the first go-around.

Looks like most of the first year has been shown now:

Flash (Jay Garrick)
Poison Ivy
Rocket Red
Black Mask

Am I missing anything?

From the pics I've seen, Red Robin looks pretty awesome.  I could do without the rest though.

I haven't seen all the pics yet, but from what I've seen the Snake characters look great, as does Spikor.  I tend to pick and choose with this line, but I've been really happy with all the figures I've received so far.

Nice.  I did get the subscription and I'm happy with the figures shown.  I'm a bit disappointed with the Rocket Red figure though.  Great character, but I was hoping for something more like the old JLI version. 

Hall of Justice / Re: DC Classics wave 19
« on: December 1, 2011, 06:45 PM »
Just opened my wave 19 (like 10 mins ago).  I'm not a bit JSA fan, but I know them well enough that I figured they will do a good job of rounding out the DCUC collection.  19 waves in I've got most of the figures.  I've only skipped on a few, and have signed up for the subscription.  I have to say though, although the subscription will have oversize figures, I'll miss being able to build them  :)

Hall of Justice / Re: DC Universe Classics Legion box set
« on: October 17, 2011, 03:17 PM »
Just checked, and the Legion box set is listed as "currently unavailable".  Any idea what that means?  I usually see "almost gone" followed by "sold out". 

...and now it's sold out.  I expected it to last a bit longer then that actually.  Ah well, if they ever bring it back I can save up some cash.  I don't think they will, but you never know. 

Hall of Justice / DC Universe Classics Legion box set
« on: October 16, 2011, 08:38 AM »
Just noticed that tomorrow the Legion of Super heroes box set is up on MattyCollector.  The set looks nice, and I guess it's reasonably priced.  DCUC characters have always been $15 on MattyCollector, and it's $180 for a box of 12.  The packaging looks fantastic too.  But I'm really worried about what the shipping on that set is going to be.  I'm guessing $20 min due to the size.
I don't really have $200 for this set at the moment, but I would like to get it.  I'm curious what the production run is, and if it will be avail for a few weeks or gone right away.  I'm pretty sure they will only do the single run for this, as it's kind of a niche item (especially now that DCUC is winding down).
Anyone else planning on getting it?

I just opened my man-e-faces.  I had no idea he came with the extra head - so that was a nice surprise.  I've only got a few of the MOTU classics figures open.  But the ones I have I'm really happy with.  Very well done figures.

I'm assuming the sub has been cancelled  :'(.  Has anyone seen confirmation of that?
