Re: Recent Acquisitions - DC Direct Edition

The Dark Knight Returns Superman-Nice Figure, but the tip of the kryptonite arrow seems to fall off quite abit. Bought from the Universe of Superheroes in Athens Ohio.

Re: Recent Acquisitions - DC Direct Edition

My 13" Shazam arrived today! I'm really enjoying this line but wish they'd make more soon. So far I have Superman, Batman, Superman Returns, and Aquaman. Now I'm just searching everywhere for a Green Lantern to go with the rest of the team.

Re: Recent Acquisitions - DC Direct Edition

All DC Direct figures should be tape-sealed regardless of what series they are from, so it could be a resealed figure, or it might just be a factory fluke, lets hope it is a fluke and that you didn't get cheated.

Re: Recent Acquisitions - DC Direct Edition

I just received the five figures from the Death of Superman DVD set, and Batman and the Joker from the Batman and Son set. They are all very cool. I was just a little surprised to see DC Direct making tiny Mattel-like figures for Superman. They're neat, but don't look anything like any of my other DC Direct figures.

That's a great figure. I don't know how she fights crime in that outfit, but I really don't care that much.

Re: Recent Acquisitions - DC Direct Edition

Just received my FREE Kingdom Come ReActivated set of figures from the CTR trivia contest for Toy Fare '08.

Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman & Green Lantern! This is so awesome and to think I was just about to purchase them at my local Suncoast within a month!

Thanks to Legends Action figures and D. Martin!

Re: Recent Acquisitions - Super Hero Toys/Collecti

I bought Absorbing Man and Wendigo today. Not worth the $30+ for two figures. But I never saw Absorbing Man in that Spiderman Classics 2-pack from years ago that goes for large cash. So I got him. The only 2-pack I ever saw had Punisher in it, and I passed, as did every other human on the planet.

Grabbed TDK 4inch pack of Goon and Batman. Batman is okay but Goon is about 4.5 inches. Way too tall.

Re: Recent Acquisitions - Super Hero Toys/Collecti

Dudes I totally scored a unmasked MM Batman today @ lunch! Never thought I would see one of these in person.

Okay this edit is because I think this is cool....

So I decide I need to go up to Target to grab some sundries and what not, and I of course swing by the action figure aisle. Lo and behold on the pegs sits 2 Green Lanterns, Variant Corps Sinestro, Variant Unmasked Deathstroke, and a Nightwing?! No Robin. I'm like WTH?! I didn't think both variants shipped in one case, and obviously someone had been there before me, yet all they took was Robin? It was a real AF Twilight Zone moment.

Lucky find.

There's only three I want, and I just can't bring myself to pay $15 each for them.

Re: Recent Acquisitions - Super Hero Toys/Collecti

Picked up the Marvel Selects Modern Thor at the comic shop today. Gotta be careful with his hands, the joints are sticking & I don't wanna break 'em, but he's a really cool figure. Close to Legends/DCU artculation, good sculpt, pretty big, and a nice representation of the art-style & overall design! Now I can completely forget trying to get the Giant-Man ML Thor.
