Classic DC Icon 6" figures.

This line is known for its creative and often comic artist influenced sculpts featuring a figure catalog that spans from the Golden Age of DC Comics to the modern New 52. No era is off limits!

Classic DC Icon 6" figures.

Ouch, but nice.

Ouch because there's now a bit of a collecting dilemma for those that embraced the Mattel DCUC line--as this NEW line from DC Collecibles appears to be the heir apparent to DCUC. But it's like starting all over again. And they'll be $25, each.

Nice because they are 6", they look to be as poseable as DCUC AND they come with accessories that make sense--multiple hands, gear ( Cosmic Treadmill for the Flash etc).

DCUC has, and still is, given me everything I've wanted from the DC stable of characters. I don't see or feel a need to start over with this new line, and yet.......some of these figures do look REALLY nice. I'll probably want to see how they look in hand, or how well they pose before I really pull the trigger.

• Batman, a pre-"New 52" iteration with Batarang and grapple gun

• Mister Miracle, the latest incarnation who comes with Miracle disks and a Mother Box

• The Flash, the Barry Allen from 1980s' Crisis on Infinite Earths with Speed Force treadmill

• Black Adam, the new version who comes with lightning hands

Wave 2 (December)

• Blue Beetle, the Jaime Reyes version with arm cannons and removable wings

• Lex Luthor, the Justice League member with clip-on energy blades

• Green Lantern, a pre-"New 52" Hal Jordan with power armor

These look really great thus far, but I do hope that they will have a waist twist and thigh swivels... and please no clear plastic joints.

I'd be tempted by some of the accessories alone, but if they're way too big to mesh with DCUC then I'll most likely pass.

Agreed. I am not super crazy about the ab articulation that they use and the lack of thigh swivel. My only other hesitation is how long are they going to run the line for? More than ten series, I might be all in. Three series, I'll probably just cherry pick.

If nothing else, I really want that treadmill.

Ha, that was my first thought. Not really a fan of the heads on Supes, Arthur, and Luthor. Not that if buy any of them anyway. Especially poor Arthur. So far none pictured would pique my interest. Maybe they'll get into more obscure characters down the line, but for now I'm going to pass.
