I have my Superman.

Its currently Superman/Batman vs The Marvel Universe.

DC one week, Marvel the next. No breaks anymore.

I got the Superman one today, very impressed. They're on my office computer just now, Batman and Superman vastly outnumbered by Marvel. The magazines are fairly decent too, enjoyable enough for the enthusiast and informative enough for someone unfamilar to the comics.

I have to be patient now. My mom bought it, but I asked her to not send it to me, as I am going to France in Summer! I will bring them back all at once!

Re the magazine: Is it the same condicending, let's take the micky style that the Marvels ones are? Or do they (Shock, horror) show a bit of respect?

James, I have already given my opinion about the magazine. They can't be comparated to the Marvel's ones : my only regret about them is the lack of central double page poster and technical datas !

Hell, I got FLASH last week, very impressive, the red is very ... flashy, I will send some pics soon.

Next week : the Joker !

In 2 weeks : Catwoman ! (hell, when will they release Green Lantern, he was supoosed to be n 5 !!!)

Already looking like the DC collection will be much more slim pickings than
Marvel.

At least, the figurines sure have the "classic" look !

One thing I like about the DC's one is the circular base, which allows you to display them whatever orientation you want. The Marvel's square base doesn't allow you to do this : if you don't put the square bases parallel to each other, it is a mess (imo) and it doesn't look good.

Do you think they will release Luthor in the green armor or in a tie suit ?

Shouldn't a character like Bane be in the 10th generation of these figurines?  Have the announced Two-Face yet?

I'm sure we will see the Anti-Monitor before we see Brainiac.

According to the list two pages back, Two Face will be issue 12. I can't see Killer Croc or Bane on the list - could they be the specials after Darkseid?

It's already out - I saw it today. I didn't buy it because I've resubscribed (after my original subscription was cancelled) so I should receive both Joker and Green Lantern (as well as the subscriber Batman) in about two weeks.

My English contact informs me that he has received Superman. I told him he
can wait until he has three or four to send me, out of the series. I can wait.
