    Nice concepts (Batman in armour with sword), but man, I wish Mattel would include more poseability. Knees, elbow and knee swivels, ball joint hips and shoulders. I honestly cannot understand why they never put more movement in the legs.

    I think I'd sooner buy my 3-year-old the 2" Imaginext Batman figures than these. I look forward to watching the cartoon with him, though.

    I'm with Sol. When I saw the clip from the cartoon, I was really looking forward to getting some cool, iconic Silver Age DC figures. But they look like they have 7 points of articulation, at most (some don't have elbow joints, even, though these may be early mock-ups)? More importantly than that, though, these toys look very similar to the Super Friends figures that are made for little kids. I guess that's the target audience for this show? Little kids around 5 years old?

    They look good, but yeah articulation doesn't seem so great.

    Correct this toy line is for those to young for the other dc lines. Its a design choice. These toys are not designed for adults trying to renact scenes but for kids with small hands. I'm a grown man and I have troublee standing soem of the marvel legends figures. Little kids would get frustrated with all those joints
