I'm hoping he will hit like the first wave of gold label did, which was pretty heavy in some stores and easy to get. I'm skipping the topless version and waiting for this one.

I’m going topless so I can use it for other things as well.

Not a fan of the armored look figure.

Happened along Aquaman, Cyborg and Supes (one each, only) hanging on the pegs at Walmart. Snapped ‘em up. Like ‘em.

The sculpts are really and truly excellent. These are great action figures. But. Their one shortcoming—and it’s a major one—is eye paint. The bodies are sculpted and painted well nigh perfectly. And the face sculpts are really there. REALLY there. But the eyes are the window to the soul and if you don’t get the mischief-y fun glint in Mamoa or that cocksure glare with a hint of irritation (or world weary exasperation) that is trademark Cavill—then you didn’t infuse the figure with the animus of the actor. And you’re left with something that “looks kinda like….”

It’s not even that they’re not using photo real. Even without photo real, they could paint the eyes much, much better than they currently are. Because actually they did just that with Cyborg. The Ray Fisher likeness is quite excellently realized in my opinion. Which shows that they CAN do it. They’re just not doing it consistently.

[Cathartic mini-rant over.] I dig the figs. Wish I was a master miniature eye painter. But I’m not, and so I can live with these figures as they are. They are fun hand candy. And they completely obviate the need for me to hang on to my Mattel Multiverse JL figs.

Bring on Barry and Bruce.

[Haven’t had a chance to snap any pics yet. Maybe later.]

I also ran across one each of Superman, Aquaman and Cyborg at a Walmart. But even though they were only $15.88, I still stuck with my plan and just bought Superman. If I can find Batman that cheap, I'll be quite the happy camper. Then all I'll have left is the Target blue/red Superman and maybe the fully clothed Darkseid if I can find him.

Still on the fence but leaning toward NOT picking these up. The likenesses are baby soft, scale is all over the place, and I'd have to go rebuy that WW84 figure which just sold off (I tried to like her, but couldn't). I have the team from Mattel complete (even have a black suit Superman from the MOS line), they have their flaws, but it's an overall solid line up. Then I also have my "high end" version of the team which will be complete once Mezco ships their Sperman/Batman/Flash set. How many versions of one team does a guy need?

I think I’ll be good with both Supes,possibly armored DS if I ever see him,now if they’d just make regular suit Bats to complete my Trinity!

i'll be honest i never bought the mattel versions, to me those look bad and i did have the BvS ones but again they're bad. i didn't get the high end ones like the mafex or figuarts as i don't have that kind of money (i did get the KO batmans which are good but not perfect). had DCC continued with their DC films line we would have gotten some really good JL figures by now.

so for me though not perfect, these will my perfect team, can't wait to find these once they hit in florida.

My interest in these is to have a few DC movie characters to mix with my Marvel Select movie figures. While WW and Superman are a little taller than I'd like, I can live with it. Count me among those who would prefer Batfleck's BvS suit over JL suit, but I'm still planning on getting him. My ultimate plan is to have armored Darkseid with the MS movie Thanos against the combined DC/Marvel gang.

I'm skipping Snyderborg and Flash as I kinda hate these versions of the characters. I'm skipping Aquaman as I prefer his solo movie look to the crustacean armor. Plus the second solo movie is in the works, so maybe I'll get the version I want then.

Edit- quick shot with MCU figures.

In a strange turn of events, Amazon shipped my four figs that I ordered from them (the only four I ever saw in stock on their site) and they’re arriving today…those are shirtless Darkseid, Steppenwolf, Flash, and Aquaman.

All other retailers seem to be treating these with the same “Justice League? We never sold McF Justice League….” attitude. Walmart and Target continue to hold my preorders in limbo. Gonna be really annoying missing half the team for what will probably be another month or two…

they have arrived in miami! went to one of my targets this morning and found them. they had 2 aquamans and a flash, no batman, cyborg or superman so i picked up flash for now. i was hoping to find the classic suit superman first but i guess i either missed him or they don't have it yet.

i went to walmart after to see they have them, nothing but empty pegs... lol

Thanks. Seems like another situation where MickDicks are all over the map, scale-wise.
