I realize that this thread hasn't been updated for a while. I'm a huge Marvel Legends collector as well as Transformers (Masterpiece, generations, etc)  I also have really been enjoying the new Hasbro Power Rangers as well. My question it worth getting into DC?  I really only like 6 inch scale figures. I've seen some of the McFarlane stuff at Target, but they don't scale with anything.  I've been getting into DC comics and want to try the figures, but is it worth it?

To me, biased as I am, it’s worth it.  But I’d cherry pick.  Characters you like/love.  Buy loose if possible.  If you’re concerned about scale, DCUC doesn’t scale well with Marvel Legends.  DCD/DCC doesn’t scale with itself.  2018/19 of Multiverse (blue boxes) does scale well with MLs, but there’s not much to pick from. 

FWIW, I still feel like Todd screwed the pooch on scale.  Even if he hadn’t, character selection is abysmal.  I’m still cherry picking a few DCUC here and there to fill niches and hoping I can find an affordable Legion set at some point.  I may still pick up Batman Who Laughs.  Beyond that, I’ve picked up a few Marvel Legends is a sort of shotgun fashion.  No team or family building.  Just one offs.  Saw Shang Chi and couldn’t do without him.  Hoping for some comic accurate Eternals prior to the movie.  And the original Werewolf by Night would be awesome.  Still need Killraven.
