DC Direct Flashpoint Boxset

Anyone own this? Was thinking of picking it up for fodder. How does it compare in scale to DCUC? Never sure what does and doesn't mesh well.

Are we talking about this?

I was thinking of getting it myself but then I thought it'd be cooler if I made my own Flashpoint Batman DCUC custom. :batrage:

Yes. I look at that WW and see parts for Katana. I'm just concerned all the heads are too big for DCUC which would render most of the figs useless.

If you do buy it (I think it selling super cheap at the WB shop), I'd be happy to buy that Wayne Casino chip off your hands or trade you something for it. I have the other chips, and would like a complete set.

I didn't care much for Flashpoint, but I loved the Flashpoint Batman mini series. Just a great read if you haven't checked it out yet.

OK, I'd have no need for the chip anyway. I just don't want to get the set if it isn't DCUC compatible, as some DCD are and some aren't.

Sweet! Keep me posted if you decide to buy it. WB has it on sale for $20 at the moment:

http://www.wbshop.com/product/the+flash+exclusive+flashpoint+action+figures+box+set+fldcdfigset01.do?sortby=ourPicks&refType=&from=Search

Guess they made too many of them, as that's how much I paid for just Batman.

As far as size goes, I have mine in storage (until I finally build my shelves here in my office), so I'm not sure how he compares to DCUC offhand. I think Batman (the only one I have from this set) was a bit taller, but he's not Bruce Wayne, so I could easily justify any size differences with my DCUC figures when I displayed them together.

Wonder Woman may be too tall for your purposes, though, as the DCUC female figures tend to be fairly small.
