Default Justice League New 52 finalized?

Can anyone say what is up with this line? I see the preorder has been taken down at several sites. For example, Ive seen two versions of WW, with and without pants. Are they back to the drawing board? I hope they don't change Hal, I think its the best version yet. Can never go wrong with a Jim Lee design!

The Batman New52 Justice League has been out for a week or so. I didn't see it at my local comic store, so I was surprise it was listed for $24.99 on Figure of the Day. I read on Fwoosh that there's suppose be a complete set of the New52 Justice League in November that will allow collectors to get Superman a couple months before the single release.

yeah, I read that too. I am lazy, so I will most likely wait for the box set.

Mattel's DC Universe All Stars Wave 2 New 52 Superman Action Figure is scheduled for release new week. Is anyone going to get him?





DC Direct's New52 Justice League Green Lantern and Aquaman are due out next week too. I'll be picking those up for sure.

Wait, these are out now?? I keep asking my LCS every week for at least the past month if any have come in, and they keep telling me no and they have ordered a couple cases. I've been haunting Toys'R'Us, Target, and any other store in town waiting for these figures to come out, but all anyone can tell me is that they are delayed. Before I get arrested for loitering, can anyone tell me what is going on?

I haven't seen them at my LCS either.

I'll be getting the box set "scheduled" for release in October.



Quote:
The DC Collectibles team also revealed a very special action figure set that will benefit DC Entertainment’s giving campaign that fights the hunger crisis in the Horn of Africa, We Can Be Heroes (www.WeCanBeHeroes.org). The set will go on sale in October 2012 and feature DC Comics – The New 52 action figures based on iconic characters including Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, The Flash, Aquaman and Cyborg. DC Collectibles will release the figures individually starting with Batman in May 2012, however as an added bonus for collectors who purchase the set, they will get the Superman figure well before its individual release date in 2013. A percentage of proceeds from the action figure set will benefit We Can Be Heroes.



“We’re thrilled to be supporting We Can Be Heroes,” stated Geoff Johns, chief creative officer for DC Entertainment. “The DC Comics – The New 52 action figures have proven to be one of our most popular product lines, so we feel the new 7-pack set is a great way to raise awareness and money for such a worthwhile cause.”
I'm planning on getting Darkseid despite the heavy price tag. He's about 14" tall (or two Aquaman's tall according to the sculptor.)

BBTS.com has preorder available for the Justice League 7 pack for $84.99, which break down to $12.14 per figure (not including shipping).



I asked my LCS owner if I could preorder the set from him, but he said that DC Collectibles is being very friendly with their figures of late and he could not order the set. He told me that DC Collectibles are trying to build a direct clientel list.



The New 52: Darkseid Deluxe Action Figure available for preorder at BBTS.com for $74.99

My LCS only got a third of their shipment for Aquaman and Green lantern. They said DC Collectibles grossly underestimated the popularity of the line and are having to give out partial orders to meet some of the demand. Only the folks that preordered them got theirs today.

I saw the Hal figure at my LCS today and almost bought it but $25 just seemed to much to me. Thought now I will probably just wait for the combo pack because I much rather pay $85 instead of like $175 for all of them.

I still have yet to see the New52 Green Lantern or Aquaman figures at my local comic stores. Which is not a surprise since none of them have received the Arkham City Killer Croc.

Just Got my N52 Hal Jordan Today Not bad altogether and as you can see from the pic below he's actually taller than some of his previous incarnations since Rebirth I think the only one that might be taller is the Justice League Hal that was made with a Alex Ross Justice Hal body and a new head-sculpt. (the only one I don't have. I purposefully left out the Green lantern Box set Hal since it's just the same as the Rebirth Hal but with a different head)

I found out through a friend of mine, that is also collecting the line, that the LCS where my Green Lantern and Aquaman were purchased from only received two of each figure. Not even the third they were promised.

If you're DCC, how do you underestimate the popularity of a Justice League line? Seriously. Especially sicne these are practically all the figures you're going to be releasing for a year.

Anyway, yeah, the figs look great, but not enough to replace my BN/BD Hal and Arthur.

I lucked out because my LCS owner saved me the one GL figure he received. His store only got 1 GL and 1 Aquaman.
