and I think Ezra Miller is a huge comic fan so he I believe respects the material.

Not having Amell as Green Arrow in JL was a huge mistake.

He would fit in well with the cast. Grant would have been okay, but I have to admit that the new guy as movie Flash won me over.

But that costume.....ugggh

Agree with you. This is where the actor made up for the dreadful wardrobe choice. Armor on a Flash is shit!

You would not believe the amount of Civilians I talk to who have NO IDEA that the CW network exists, let alone ARROW, The FLASH, DC LEGENDS, and SUPERGIRL.  It's kind of frustrating.

https://paulmartstore.com/products/dc-comics-multiverse-set-of-4-wonder-woman-wondergirl-superman-aquaman

The mini-wave of DK3 Wonder Woman, Wondergirl (with BAF Dr Psycho), Super Friends Superman, and SF Aquaman looks to be starting to trickle out.

Over on Fwoosh we're all trying to rack our brains figuring out if Superman has sculpted boots.

Solid little set for me. Definitely want Dr. Psycho, Wondergirl, and Superman. It's only taken about 10 years, but we're finally getting Superman in his correct colors.

And packaged shots of the Clayface wave. I want the CNC and don't care for any modern stuff, but they all look good. Happy to see comic figures at least. Superman's face looks great, I'll definitely swap that onto the SF Supes to continue my quest for a definitive Superman.

Heís being stoic.

Donít need Martian Manhunter except for the C&C part and now Black Mercy.

This is Rebirth Superman 1.0.  I really expected Mattel to change the boots to red.  Obviously, Rebirth Superman 2.0 is coming.

Batwoman looks fantastic.

Donít buy GLs as a rule except for Earth humans.  Jessica is acceptable.

Rebirth Two Face looks OK.  I might be all in for all Rebirth.

Rebirth Clayface might well be the best C&C since Chemo.

Love Cassie WG.

DKR Wonder Woman might be my most wanted.

Two cents given.

I'm buying DKR WW and CW Martian Manhunter just for the CnC pieces.  Manhunter at least looks something like one of his comic outfits.  DKR WW is just fugly.

It's funny that SUPES no longer wears those dull, drab blue boots, but why not make a figure of him the way he looked for 15 whole minutes??

I see that they made a WONDER WOMAN almost as ugly as Frank Miller's art.  Technically, that's exactly how she should look, but God I hate his art. 

Otherwise, very nice looking figures.  Nothing that I want, but for DC nowadays, that's par for the course.

I understand why they're including other media versions of characters now, but in all honesty, Mattel have lost me as a fan and a buyer.
Since the change I think the only figure I've picked up is the Black Superman. There's a couple more I want like The Reaper that I simply haven't been arsed to track down yet. I just don't have the fan enthusiasm to do so.

What hurts are the cool C&Cs. I want that King Shark, but don't want a single figure in the wave. Once upon a time I'd have bought the whole wave to get Clayface, then sold off the figs I don't want. But I only want Jessica so it's a large outlay for little return.

I can understand that sentiment.  But I cling to this line for a lot of reasons.  In 2011 when "Fangirl" announced DCUC was over, I wasn't done.  In 2014 when we got the "fuck off Super Powers" wave, I was pissed.  When they came back (sort of) in 2016, I was cautiously hopeful and still am.  

DCSH/DCUC/Multiverse is the only line I collect.  It's the dream line I've wanted since DCD started in 1998.  Dreams die hard.  Toy Fair is a little over two months away.  I think that will tell us what we need to know.  If Mattel will step up or not.  Especially since Aquaman isn't coming until December of 2018 and Shazam isn't coming until Spring of 2019.  There has been a definite trend toward more comic characters.  Lets hope it keeps up.

I totally get what you're saying, GARD.  It would totally suck if DC was the only thing you were collecting.  To me personally, I lost almost all hope when they pulled the plug on DCUC.  Anything since then has been a 99% SUPER-GREEN-BAT fan service.  Before, there was a fairly decent chance of almost any C-List character showing up.  Now?  There's a 1 in 5000 chance of 1 showing up per 3 waves.  And even a lot of B Listers have no chance. 

I have pretty much given up any hope just based on their recent approach.  Variety isn't impossible...but it's highly unlikely.  1 Dr. Psycho per year kind of sucks.

Ray and Vixen don’t count?  And both can almost double for pre Flashpoint.
