Don't really care. The only thing they were making that I was vaguely interested in, i.e some of the DCNu figures, is now looking rubbish.

Yeah, whatever happened to DC Direct?? They used to do such great stuff. Classic Legionnaires (though only one female); Uncle Sam and Phantom Lady; Silver-Age Crime Syndicate...when did they lose their vision?

I could be completely wrong but i took this to mean that they were moving away from action figures and focusing on high end stuff. Oh well time will tell I guess

"The first online exclusive is a Flashpoint Action Figure Box Set"

Bwahahahah! Yeah, I'll be getting up at 2am to order that one before it sells out. Y'know, between the total gutting of the action figure line and the reboot of the Covergirls of the DC Universe I'm no longer getting a single thing from DC Direct. Well done to their chief creative officer.

I noticed this pic in the recent DCD solicits which made me feel better about Flash, if in fact this is the version we're getting:

Exactly!

I hafta say i'm feeling the same as Dozy and DCD have done all my fave 6" figures and been my brand of choice over the years.I literally have one piece that i'm getting from MikeS when it's released and then nothing more anywhere in the forseeable future.

And if they keep cancelling Trades like they have been then they're gonna get less and less from me altogether.Sad state of affairs really.

I'd have to dig out my list to tell you the exact ones now.But it was all collected Title Storylines that finished in the months close to before the NU was implemented,JSA,JLA,All Stars and some others.

I don't know what the story is.I just send through my request list to my Comics Supplier and he's been coming back saying DC has pulled this or that Trade to be released at a later date.So he can't leave them on order as Diamond or whoever they get them from has no idea if they truly will be re-solicited later on.And it's not like it's obscure Titles that i collect.
