    I've seen the Batman and Superman toys in the store, but haven't picked any up, just didn't seem that interesting. I do however pick up some of the DC Direct stuff (GL Series, Elsworlds Red Son Superman and Wonder Woman) While these don't have amazing articulation like ML, they do have a look of quality to them and look cool in and out of the package.

    If only I could convince Bruce Timm to make a Red Son Superman Animated Movie....

    Holey thread mining Batman!

    I'm going to pick up Superman and Doomsday now that Walmart is Clearancing them. I got the Batman/Robin 2 pack from the old Comic Batman line prior to this line so if the molds/decos are similar I'll pass, we'll see when I find them

    EDIT: I just looked them up. Robin is exactly the same as the one I have, and Batman is the same mold with the Black (Which I like) replaced with Blue (Which I don't)

    I saw the series 3 or 4 Batman with plethora of batmerangs but since they don't have articulation on its hands so having those weapons are useless. That's too bad because I really love the sculp of the figure. But if I get that I'd be getting all of his foes and with ML still going strong I don't want to commit to other lines.

    Loving the Batman & Scarecrow. This is the best looking Batman fig Ive ever seen IMO
    I always favored the classic blue & grey look. Bought 2, one to keep sealed and one for open. Pic for anyone curious

    The Scarecrow is very poseable and sturdy for such a skinny fig. Lotsa fun.
    That new Doomsday fig is pretty sweet as well and the Supermans blow away that new movie Superman thats frikn EVERYWHERE .
    Picked Bane up at a comic shop for 4$ and he turned out alot better and a little more poseable than I thought.

    :lol  I forgot to mention that his hands are molded into closed fists and he can't hold any of the 7 batarangs. What a waste.

    Picked up Doomsday and Superman, as has been said before this is the only Superman on shelves that is worth buying, great classic comic look.
    Doomsday, wow is he way more articulated than I thought he would be.

    Agreed on the Supes, Doomsday, and Bane figures -- they're great! Bizarro is very cool, too, though his arms are too loose to hold his chunk-o'-car accessory in any pose other than "drag".

    I gotta disagree on the Scarecrow, though. WAY too loose to stand up, and funky (not in a good way) sculpting. The legs are different lengths! Plus, his scythe has two handholds, but only one of his hands can grip them. And NEITHER hand can hold his fear gas skull. :thumbdown  :thumbdown  :thumbdown 

    Anyway, why the heck is this toyline moving so slowly?! It's been out for almost a year, and we're only through two waves. They need to get to the REALLY good stuff, like Azrael, Darkseid, and Luthor. (Not to mention all the delicious figs for which they showed 2-ups at SDCC!)

    I picked up the entire Superman wave and the Batman from the first wave. The Bizarro, Supes, and Doomsday are nice. Supergirl is okay but a little to dark for a skintone. I can't wait for the next Supergirl to replace her with.

    On my Scarecrow the fear gas thing came molded into his hand permanently.
    Azrael is now showing up in Target stores as part of the new Batman wave, but I agree I wish Luthor and Darkseid would hurry up and come out...

    Oh yeah I forgot to mention that the new Batman series doesn't come with the comic-books anymore; now the figures come with a lame cardboard foldout diorama. :(

    I have picked up and am rather pleased with Superman and Doomsday. They are currently fighting on my dvd shelf.

    Anyone able to post decent pics of the Batman, I saw him in FP in London a while back, but passed becasue I wasn't sure about his hip articulation. It looked like the legs only swung forward so you couldn't get him to do decent kung fu kicks, so I passed... or did Mattel do a superb job hiding that joint?

    On the subject of DC superheroes, all I have so far is Supergirl.

    You are correct about the hip joint on Batman.

    Here are a couple with Batman and I though what the hell I only have 4 so here they are too.

    Of the 4 I have Bazzaro is my favorite.

    Also the ankles on my Batman are turned in slightly so he doesn’t stand correctly. In these pics I have him leaning on the backdrop.

    Man, even Bizarro has decent hips... I assume Mattel was hoping people like me would buy this Batman, then shell out for another which has decent hips...

    Just picked up Wave 3 Batman. If you have to choose between that, and Wave one bats, pick up wave 3. It's amazing.
