The Joker !!!

Since the beginning of these new collection, I have noticed a slight decrease of the quality. I explain : I suspect EM don't wait long enough for the paint to dry before putting the figurine in their packaging. So, the paint of the back and the shoulders "stick" a little bit to the box and the result is not fine. I have noticed this on the Flash and the Joker. It's not a big issue since it occurs on the back ...

I just got back from a trip to France last night with Superman and the Flash
in tow. I was hoping I might find the Joker before I left, but no luck.

Oddly, I found the Superman and the Flash in Amboise, near Leonardo da
Vinci's house, but not in Paris.

It's a shame they used the horrible WW belt for Wonder Woman, but otherwise that's a great sculpture.  I haven't decided yet if I will be collecting these figures but in any case, that one will make it into my Wonder Woman collection.

I like the original Flash lightning belt that was straight around his waist.  I thought that looked better.  The Flash figure looks good, but don't like the black around the lightning. 
Wish we could get  some of these.  Probably good that we can't, I'd just have to spend more money.
Looks nice people!

The Two-Face is unusual in that it actually looks like someone wearing a
business suit. Too often in toys and "action figures" street clothes take on
the tubular look of much of what we see in computer animation.

I finally got an up-close look at these the other day. Having dabbled in the miniatures painting hobby, I think these figures would look even better if only their eyes were re-done. Here's a guide to painting faces and eyes for maximum effect:

I'm hoping the Batman exclusives are available through Forbidden Planet or some other retailer.  I've been cruising eBay for a while looking for one.

I have to force myself to remember sometimes that what is an iconic character to me i.e discovered as a kid between 1976 and 1979 (in otherwords pre-existing characters) is not going to be the same for younger fans. Doomsday is I would guess around 15 years old now. To a lot of 25 year olds etc he is an iconic character that deserves his place in this DC line.

Including Doomsday in this series (especially this soon) is the equivalent of
the Marvel series having done the Beyonder some time within the first dozen
or so figures.
