Nice pics and a nice GL collection. So, I recently got the FLASH TV series Flash figure and... he stinks. Literally! With the warmer weather now, I find there's a faint skunk-y smell emanating from the figure. I have the same issue with my Greg Capullo-Based Nightwing figure as well. Never noticed this before despite all the other figures on my shelf. Any advice about what this is?

Have no clue what it is, but I noticed the same thing when I opened up my tv Flash figure too. Definitely not the usual fresh plastic smell, thats for sure.

I get smelly action figures all the time. Between the plastic or the paint... it's hard to say what the problem is.

Really liking this Batman.

That's new character The Owl.

They do look really great Smile

Talon, actually! One of the Court of Owls. A very cool looking villain, though, I think. I love the design. I hope we get more Capullo figures.

I have seen a "Red Hood and Two Face" on Ebay from the same designer.

Yeah, I have all of the Capullo line, now. Except Two-Face who I think is still coming up in force. For whatever reason there was a shortage on him the first release, I guess. The Red Hood is neat. I got two so I could make the Hood and one of his gang members. I also go the Zero Year Batman, who looks really cool.




And, finally, here's a shot of Mr. Freeze I took. Freeze has always been a favorite of mine, and I really like this design.

Do any of the other figures have comparable articulation to Batman and Nightwing?

Talon and Freeze seem to have virtually the same articulation scheme. The women lack the lateral movement in the legs. The suited figures like Gordon, Riddler and the Red Hood lack lateral movement in both the legs and arms.

Thanks..It's too bad they aren't all consistent, especially the females. I hate those older style hips/legs they have.

Well... more DC Collectibles for me! I really am kind of amazed at how great these figures are, over all. Scarecrow is the best of the lot. Lots of great little details and separate parts like his leg brace and tubes, arm brace and the like. None of it hinders movement. Harley could use a little more expression, I think, but she looks cool. I like the details, especially on the jack-in-the-box. Batman's paint is a bit muddy, but he has good articulation over all. All of them could use a little more hip movement, but it doesn't really matter THAT much to me. Red Hood is the Gamestop Exclusive. Again, the details really make this for me. Love the stitched rip on the back.

OK......here they are plus a working Bat-Signal



I was slightly disappointed by there not being a Diorama base as shown in all the adverts, is there a deluxe version with the Diorama base or was it just artistic license?

Diorama base? Not sure I saw that! I wish I had one of those Bat Signals. It's a cool prop.

I bought this from Ebay and it had 2 pictures 1 of the boxed figure and this picture



I shall give the seller another view to see if the Base is sold separately or give the "Toyark.com" a visit.

Thank you EMP, I believe it is from one of the "Sin City" figures.

Speaking of dioramas, I'm not the hugest Gotham fan, but I'm tempted to get the figures for the dioramas.

September, I think! The piece you see comes with Gordon and Selina. Penguin has a totally separate base of a dock.

You are correct, they are available for pre order on the FP website.
