I think these look pretty great. Never owned TDKR figures before so this will be fun. I need to learn to tune out people bashing Todd. I think he's making some great stuff.

Thanks for starting this thread. Well deserved as these figures and the horse look great. After Batman ‘66 this is my second buy from Todd.

Most definitely and what imports I have they are more fragile. I stopped buying imports due to me breaking a couple.

Robin from this wave is the only must-have for me. Superman looks good but I wouldn't use him in my Justice League display and I don't really need multiples of him. Batman mostly looks good but I don't like his expression. Joker is an absolute no for me.

Sad thing is, I would love to build the horse.

I missed the "Wave 1" tease - I am all in on a "Millerverse" so to speak. Next wave I hope for a proper armored Batman, Mutant Leader, Sons of Batman and whatever else. Probably oval symbol Batman.

Pics of the proper armored Batman are out there,most likely in a 2pk with Superman.

I mean a new sculpt - at least his thighs. The rest looks pretty accurate. I just think this story should have very accurate figures, like Wave 1 here. I dig Todd's influence, but leave Miller alone IMO

I want to see more of that Superman personally. Even though it's single jointed elbows, I really love the bulk.

Wave 2 wishlist
One armed Green Arrow - Mattel never made this
Would anyone want the emaciated Superman? I can see Todd making that
Wonder Woman seems likely
Mutant Leader and Armored Wayne seem locks
Catwoman?

Better than DCD and Mattel.

Now I really wanna see Kingdom Come, New Frontier, Red Rain, Gotham by Gaslight, Flashpoint, One Million, more White Knight, more Red Son, and definitely wanna see DCeased done by Todd.

Tommy....if we played a drinking game for everytime you mentioned Kingdom Come...we'd all be dead. Although for those of us who survived I'm sure we'd buy the figures so I can't blame you for mentioning it.

That being said...yes, White Knight wave 2 is needed....and I'd guess it's coming whenever the third book comes out. Wave 1 was pretty well received and I could see Todd building out the WK universe. I'm sure that stuff is all about scheduling. There seems to be a push to give us more non-batman DC figures lately. Batman is still going to be there in large numbers, it's all about when to squeeze in the different versions.

I'd imagine wave 2 of WK would include Nightwing in his GTO gear, Red Hood and Batman Beyond. It would be nice to see Harley, another Joker (suspenders version), flashback Robin, Nightwing in his Nightwing gear. Just build out the WK universe. They are just fun figures.

I almost feel like this Batman is too chunky in the legs but I'm still really interested in these figures. Robin has to be lined up for some re-use in the line.

I'm honestly very surprised that we got a Red Son Superman but not the Russian Batman. I'm sure he's in the pipeline at some point, and DCeased is so far up Todd's wheelhouse I can only imagine it hasn't been done yet because DC has not allowed it or something yet.

As for DKR, I am in love with this horse! I'm very curious to see if you can actually get it into a 2-legged pose, or if they photoshopped out a stand in that picture. But I'm loving what I'm seeing here, can't wait. Carrie looks like she might be a head swap away from a classic Dick or Jason, too.
