DC Action League

Does anyone else collect this line, too? I was pretty sad to see it go. Now I'm just picking up the ones I missed on eBay. :smsad:

I pretty much have all of them, well the unique characters anyway. I missed out on Blue Beetle who was selling from Japan for under $3 before Mattel cancelled him. I also missed out on the single release of Atom from the first wave. I don't have Alloy, another figure that snuck by on eBay but never hit retail.

Now I'm depressed. :batlol:

How's the hunt going? It should be a pretty easy set to complete. I don't remember many of them being uber rare. Except the aforementioned "wound" figures. :smwink:

It's been mostly filler bins at flea markets and loose lots on eBay. I'm ending up with a few repeats but I might get my friend to make some cool stuff out of them with the leftovers. :batwink: I think this is a set that could have benefited from blind bag madness playing off our collector OCD. :batgrin:

Have you seen the Toys R Us 6 pack anywhere? It includes a clear Gentleman Ghost. It was a solid pegwarmer for months and then it disappeared. I have a feeling Mattel bought it back from them because I swear they never sold a single piece.

By the time I started collecting, the only thing I've seen is the pack with Saint Walker. :batsad: These are actually really well made figures. In my opinion, better than Superhero Squad. I wish they did a better job of advertising it and got it some TV spots so it lasted longer.

Mattel must have something against Gentleman Ghost...what with the lack of DCUC Ghost distribution
I am one of the 63%....

I am a HUGE fan of this line - much more than DCUC if you can believe that.

I have nearly every figure from the line with a few exceptions - the ones listed before - and a few other items - I never got the batsub... I don't know why!!!

If you are really hardcore about this line, do yourself a favor and check out Target at the very beginning of every Holiday season - they've had a few special edition Batman figures that, normally I'd want nothing to do with because I'm not a huge fan of weird variants that don't make sense, but they do repaints of the Batman that originally came out when the line switched from Brave and the Bold to DC Universe - the one with the arm articulation.
The Hammer of Justice is unisex!

Hey Jack, can you post some photos of your collection? I've always wondered what the scope of this series is really like. The minor points of articulation that they added to this series of mini figures really sold me on it.
