We'll probably end up seeing these in the States in a year.  Just enough time for me to find more space in my home office!

As I mentioned in the Marvel thread, I asked a friend currently based in London if he could check to see if Forbidden Planet had any in stock, and he ran right out and subscribed! Which, I suppose, means I can start looking for packages in the mail, eventually.

Also means I will have some figures I don't want. . .

The collection is supposed to be finally launched nationally in the UK in the next week or so. Picked up a Batman and Superman during the trial run and was pretty impressed so I subscribed.

Wonder Woman is not part of the first wave, correct?   (I only collect WW memorabilia -- despite the constant temptation to branch out.)

I'm really eager for this series to start. I'll look for some when I'm in Europe later this year, but I'm also going to be checking DCBS solicitations pretty carefully, too, for the next year.

Wonder Woman is supposed to be issue 7 of the collection.

You guys may have seen this already, but here's a TV ad for the figurines.

You can see WW in the set. Man, this is a tough decision. I really like the look of these, but I don't want to end up buying all of them. (Plus I don't have a lot of room to display them). Maybe if I just stuck to getting the Heroes.....then, what's a group of heroes to do without villains to fight.....arrrgh!

"…at newsagents now…"

Pardon me whilst I weep softly in the corner, here.

Newsagents... so this is how they call the " bureaux de presse " in England...

And I wish so much those would come in HK fast....

For you French guys, it started also?

 I may consider to ask my mom to take some for me... but I may need to know the release dates of the figures...

Now are these really available at newsagents? Over the past couple of years, I've popped into a couple dozen magazine shops in London, and I've never seen them on display. The only place I've ever found these in the U.K. is in comic book shops.

The first figurine, Batman, is on sale at french newsagents since February 27th, for less than 3 euros. Looking forward the rest of the collection. I might even start with the Marvel figurines (I resisted as long as I could!)

Caution : I found quite a few Batman figures with bent ears. Look well before buying.

*******

That was the case for Marvel figurines in Ireland. Probably will be the case for the DC ones too.
