Default DC 3.75"

So, according to BBTS DC is following up its con exclusives with this foray into 3.75" figures:

Thoughts:
  • Wow, that price point blows.
  • You're really going to test the waters with a bunch of what look like alternative universe versions of figures first?
  • Articulation doesn't seem too bad, but it's hard to tell.
  • I really like that Grundy as a custom base.

These were my exact first two reactions. I overpaid for the two con sets and $13 mass market 4" figures are not going to make me excited about a line. I still wince paying that much for a 6" figure. But these deco choices are not good. I wanted this line to be everything that Infinite Heroes was not. Apparently I will have to wait for Hasbro to get the DC license in 2042.

They look similar to the Mortal Kombat figs to me. Especially GA.

yeah. I agree with you on your initial thoughts. Are these going to hit regular retail? I bet they'll be cheaper there. If so, then I'm getting that WW/Grundy pack.

Maybe places like Suncoast and TrU, but I doubt we see these at Walmart.

Just gonna echo the sentiments on pricepoint and character selection.

Even if true retail is $19.99 for a two-pack, that's still absurd for a pair of 4" figures. Even MU comic packs don't cost that much.

I agree that these will be only at TRU and other specialty shops. This is DCD, not Mattel. WM has never carried a DCD figure. So I guess it's hard to compare to actual retail products, but DCD figures were always a poor value compared to DCUC, so these will likely follow suit. The only reason we're even looking at them with a remotely positive light is that Mattel's DCIH were so unbelievably horrible.

Care less about DC stuff, but I would like to see a decent Batman or two. I'm sure I'd have to "fix" it, but having a good base to start with is a plus.

Although... looking at those pics, they could have some really good customizing potential, parts wise.

Boooooooooooo. I just don't like DC characters not named Batman or GL enough to shell out $15 each for 4" figures. Not going to happen.

I will probably grab that Grundy and any Superman if they make him in this line.

I don't hate the figure. It's not a version of Harley that I particularly need a figure of, but it seems ok. Not a lot of detail, but it's such an improvement from Infinite Heroes that I can't complain too much.
