I love how half of the Earth 2 figure wave are Trinity characters.

Maybe its because I enjoyed the JSA so much but I really don't like the costumes for Earth 2.

i'm a sucker for GL toys (even if it's the *not* AS one ) so if the price is right on this one when (and if) i see it maybe i'll get it (but only if no one see me getting it)

Right, because who knows where your love life might be if some random person saw you buying a toy of a character who is gay in the comics.

I saw them at my local comic store yesterday. I put them on hold for now. I really don't like the Flash figure all that much, but I want the Thomas Wayne figure to add to my Bat-collection. I think the Wonder Woman figure is the best of the bunch, so I'll definitely be getting her.

Scott is also a GL I would like to add.

That's what I thought as it was described in the article I read.

I like the Wonder Woman, and will eventually pick her up but the rest are meh. That Batman looks like an unfinished custom. I can paint straighter lines free-hand.

Got Alan, his right arm was backwards in the package but his hand was the right way almost broke it cause I thought the elbow wouldn't bend thankfully it was able to be turned around correctly. The front of both shoulders look rough and his legs were positioned a little weird due to the position in the package. The rest of him was ok.

Ditto. Maybe the boot metal should be gold though.

I hate to say you're right, but mixing gold and silver like that DOES clash. It should be one or the other.

I'd have all the metal gold save for the arm bands as they were always silver (although I might be tempted to make them gold).

Ugh...I got the figure, and it has a spot where some of the paint was gouged from its back. DCC shouldn't have boxed it until it was fixed.

My LCS owner set one aside for me because he knows I'm a GL nut, so I picked it up. The quality control on the paint is pretty bad. There's an inexplicable lime-green/yellowish spot on his side. Aside from that, it's a good-looking figure.

Yes, I've always heard that about DCC, but I never had a problem until now. I just ordered a 2nd Scott figure because I've been waiting so long on this release.

I picked up the WW over the weekend and was EXTREMELY disappointed in the final facial sculpt. She has these yellowish insomnia circles around her eyes that make her look like a crack fiend and eyebrows that look Vulcanish.

Yeah, the Wonder Woman head sculpt kind of sucks. Nothing like the initial photo. I'm planning on doing a head swap.
