Thanks for starting the thread! I considered it the other day, but stopped for some reason.
As for wave 19, it will ship to me as soon as I change all my shipping info over to the new house. Kinda sad Stargirl looks like such a freak. My daughter really wants me to buy one for her...

As for Stargirl, she looks like this: http://thefwoosh.com...rt-i#more-17971
Only her torso was even more messed up on mine. It's molded in flesh colored plastic, then painted blue, then flesh paint on top, and it looked awful. The casting quality was really crummy too. Add the bizzaro-muffin-top, jokerface, and kinda odd proportions of the small female DC buck, and it's a really tough figure to love.

Nabbed a DCSH Brainiac off ebay yesterday. I am inordinately pleased by this.
Edit: DCUC is dead! Long live DC Universe All Stars!

Nothing exciting here IMO. Couldn't they shove this crap in the sub and give us Jay Garrick at retail?
As a club member, I am very happy not to be receiving any of these.
I agree with Daith, Superboy has a pinhead. Larfleez looks worse then his DC Direct version. Plastic Man comes from a mini I didn't read, and which sounds awful.
BB goes fairly high on ebay so I can't really fault that one.

And by mistake an online store sent me the wrong figure and let me keep it free, so I put it to use making that timeless Jim Lee character that's bound to be forever remembered by the common consciousness as one of the greatest characters ever to see print: Deathblow!
I know some Wildstorm characters were folded in the DCnU... has he?
Regardless, he does have his uses:

But this one sports a nicer bat-sigil, a nicer skintone on the face AND a nicer contrast between the gray and the black. And it comes with a spiffy button.
So naturally, best I can figure, it's hella rare:

I have seen the 12-inch Movie Hal Jordan, and man, that is one ugly toy. Light-up feature actually looks quite cool, but it is just overall not as articulated as a toy of such height should be.
I know I am probably the only one collecting the line, but... any news of that supposed third Mattycollector GL Movie Masters toy? Still hoping for Stel, or Hannu...

It's something I've noticed more and more of late, but it seems toy companies have now decided that the bigger the toy, the lesser the articulation.
Hasbro's been doing the same with its larger Marvel toys.

Took a few liberties with the color scheme since the details varied depending on the era/medium.

Hopefully I can find good base parts for Oracle so she can join them.
As an aside, I love this little playset. It doesn't take up much space because everything closes up into a small case, and it has tons of neat details. I'll have to do some mods, like removing the sticker of Bruce Wayne's action figure from the rotating wall and painting the bat-gadgets on the wall and the workbench.
