OK didn't see a thread for this line, so thought I would start one. Thoughts, like, want, hate, what.

Speculation is over and they have finally arrived. So what is the verdict on DC's attempt at 3 & 3/4 inch. Follow the link and find out.

These look pretty good, and if I were a comics fan I'd probably scoop em all up. But for me they're a little too much in this weird middle ground between classic iconic look and modern reinterpretation. Think I'd prefer either DCUC miniaturized or a full on modern take a la 30th Joes for example.

Great pics and overview zed!! [smile]

Thanks, I notice when a new line hits there is a ton of mis-information about it so I just try to cut through the BS. Just got Grundy and WW today, both are good (but WW could use some accessories). Grundy you have to be careful with as he feels a bit brittle. More later.

I also wish DC Collectibles would have started their 3 3/4" line with their comic accurate styled characters and not these game designed figures. I just do not like the character designs for the video game. I've never been a gamer so I couldnt care less about a Mortal Combat game with DC characters. What frustrates me the most, is that if the game dosent perform well....OR the action figure line dosent perform well DC will scrap any future 3 3/4 figures plans.

DC should have started with a few waves of New 52 styled figures and THEN worked on releasing the video game styled figures. The whole thing is bass ackwards

That's the major thing I really don't get about the line myself. I think they do have a huge chance here to open up the DCC market to a new audience and they are blowing it. I get the idea of having media support but most of DCC hasn't had that kind of media support to begin with.

Although it appears that they are arriving in Gamestop stores, so maybe that was the motivation, who knows.
