    Man I think we have wildly different opinions on the definition of "thick". I don't think Michael Turner drew a single woman over 100 lbs.

    All I know is that I would be super happy with a bikini Barda in the sub.

    Oooh, that's more like it. That pic wins.

    Michael Turner's women were all thin, but they did look good. I like how Barda was drawn in the DC movie much better, though.

    As for Granny Goodness, they could have just made her a Collect and Connect figure. I'm not sure how large she is though.

    Oddly enough I do, just had one given to me by a fellow collector. What have you got trade-wise?

    Just got an update that my Custom Red Hood is almost finished. Also his bike has been pimped out a bit. It has the hidden machine gun, a pair of compact rocket lauchers, a holster (currently has a sawed off shotgun in it), a stash of grenades, a booster engine, and an electronics jammer. With the bike as it is and the Red GT40 he will have everything he needs.

    Scored me a Stargirl today. She's pretty cool.

    Is Samurai cool? I kinda' dig him. What are your opinions of Naga? I need more cool villains to somewhat even out the ratio. Got burned with Pharoh, bleh.

    Samurai's my fav of that wave after Bronze Tiger.
    Naga (real name Kobra) was initially going to be the only figure i'd skip out on this wave, but he ended up being on of my favorites.

    Thanks for the link.

    I'm prob. not going with BBTS on this one.

    Getting All-Stars as a new line in 2012 is going to be great -- finally flush out the Target's and Kmarts of their old stock. I hope. DCUC's got to be one of the longest running lines that hasn't reset its name or whatnot to trigger a clearance purge of old stuff.

    Went ahead and put in an order for Superboy Prime and Larfleeze. You would think that seeing as this is the start of the rebrand that these would be plentiful, but I NEVER saw the first three waves of DCUC locally as all the local stores were still trying to sell off all the backlog they had of DCSH. I'm still looking for stuff from the first two waves... don't want to miss out like that again!

    And before anyone asks... no one wants THAT Plastic Man!

    Having to resist jumping to get a pre-order on Larfleeze. I have to have faith I'll see him at retail eventually. Then again, a safety net wouldn't hurt and it's supposed not coming till Spring next year.

    Well, the nice thing about BBTS is that they don't charge you until the item comes into their warehouse and they ship it. So, if you find it locally before they get it in (which is always a toss up as sometimes they get stuff in a whole month or so before it's official release on these things) you can always cancel. One of the reasons I deal with them almost exclusively for online preorders of toys.

    You've got to wonder, out of all the Flashpoint figures they could be making, why did they choose a character from the absolute worst of the tie-ins? Easy repaint? IDK.

    Given the resemblance I almost wonder if it wasn't meant to be Elongated Man and than they changed it last minute when DC/WB dropped the bomb shell on Matty? It's possible given that a lot of what we've seen was rumored to be part of the now canceled wave 21.

    Either way I really didn't like Flashpoint and won't buy anything from it. That said; you'd think Flashpoint Batman or Cyborg would have been better choice if they insisted on doing someone from Flashpoint.
