As soon as I see 7" I'm out. If they were smart they'd just do it in scale with DCUC and then people like me would pick-up Marionette, Mime, etc.

I like BRAINIAC and BLACK MANTA, but I won't be buying them.  I didn't see anything that I even halfway wanted.

DCC can bite me. Another incomplete line and waste of my time and money - I refer this time to Batman Animated.

I am getting deja vu of the bad old Brewer DC Direct days.

I can't post a link, but I just saw black Wally KID FLASH on TOYNEWSI.com.  Pretty sharp looking.

October 2018 solits.  Wow.  Nothing but a total f--king glut of Batman / Joker mega crap.  Zero hope for even the slightest shred of variety in DC figures in the future.

DCC would have to tunnel upwards 500 miles to get to the level of whale shit.

Sorry if my rant offended anyone.

No offense.  DCC is a collection of imbeciles.  They should have stuck with the style and scale they were using when they were doing New 52 figures.  Even after the New 52 went away, that scale would have worked doing Rebirth figures.  Or Metal figures.  Or Doomsday Clock figures.  Since the end of the New 52 figures, DCC has changed scale at least twice.

Mattel has kept the same scale since 2003 when they took over the DC license.  I, for one, appreciate that.

It's insane.  It's like they are marketing to a different demographic with every single release!!  Who the hell does that!!??  And the changing scale thing is just ridiculous.  All that tooling starting over from scratch.  Just...why!!??

I assume it's a jumping on point for 'new collectors', presuming there are any. That way they don't have to deal with the legacy of everything that has come before. You could almost do the same thing with a comic line  Wink

Clayface wave is starting to show up at West Coast brick and mortar stores now.  Wal-Mart specifically.

One of the articles made it sound like they'd also have "early access" stuff.  I imagine these will be solicited through Diamond eventually.

I know it's like trying to swim up a waterfall, but I really hope something decent shows up at SDCC.  I don't buy much nowadays, but I don't want to be done with DC figures yet.
