    Hope Batman's suit isn't that blue tint, though.

    Batman looks weird to me, I can't quite put my finger on it. Joker and Harley look spot on though.

    I will wait until I see some photos of the packaging before I bite on these, DC Direct figures are pretty crappy action figures and I always have a tendency of breaking something on them, so these dudes will stay MISB if I do get them.

    Looking at the Game Box art Batman Looks Spot on design wise. I cant see due to the angle of the toy pic how long his arm fairings are. I cant tell color wise either. I am too lazy to put the game in and look at his suit color again.

    I'm going to preorder them through BBTS as soon as I get up close pics of the actual figures. Harley Looks just Awesome.

    Are they going to be online only or do we know if they will be in stores? I love Batman and these designs are just awesome so I would be sad if I missed out on getting them.

    These will be in stores as well. I got the word from my local comic shop that they will be getting them through their regular means.

    For me, it's the eyes. Even though I love the Dark Knight Movie Masters version, I still have a hard time accepting any other Batman that has pupils.

    The nice thing about DC Direct is they eventually make something from most every storyline or series or what have you. The bad thing is that they really are just a step above statues when you compare them to the DCU line. I'm also not a fan of casting the entire figure in white & painting everything on it, I like things to be molded in color as much as possible to avoid paint wear. ESPECIALLY for faces. Noses just aren't meant to hold paint on the tip.

    These guys look like a win for me. I have not had any issues with any of my DC Direct Figures. All have great detail and are displayed on my shelf quit nicely. I dont play with my figures as some might here so the paint not holding on the nose hasnt affected me. DC Direct are more for the Adult Collector who want to just Display them versus Playing with them.

    Right away I can tell the colour's way off. The face is too tanned, and his cape and cowl should be black. His body suit is also just grey in the game, no blue tint.

    These will deffinately be some of the few dispaly-only things I own.

    The more I look at Batman the more I really like the overall look. I cant wait to see if they make Mutated Joker. He will be sweet.

    Blue tint bad. But I kind of see what they were going for. I do remember sometimes the black came off as that blue in the outside areas depending on where I was standing.

    Pass on him though. I do wonder if they are going to do the other one that's in challenge mode.

    Split: Isn't the cape in the picture black? Everything else seems to be in blue tint.

    :lol  That's DC Direct for you. I expected this, since Batman: AA would be just the kind of thing they'd give to DC Direct.

    Well would ya look at that, it is. Makes the blue pieces even more weird.
