The set was released in the UK last week, for those of you interested in the Hal Jordan figure it's the same as the original DC Direct release apart from the costume, I know some people were concerned the mask may not be removeable.

What really sucks about this is that you have four possible releases but unlike HT when they do their two in ones, you would have to buy four of these sets just to have each one of the figures. The pack-ins really don't make a whole lot of sense for the common collector who opens, shelves and leaves it be. They feel a lot more like they are being marked to those who would either play with them or like MF interchange for picture's sake. Hal does look pretty good, so do the other except I'm not liking the bug eyes on Abin Sur but as a whole it just makes me scratch my head.

Yeah, Abin Sur's eyes are goofy! :google

But it is nice to see DC step up a little it. Those colored necks are a step in the right direction. I can't help but see a giant chicken and the creature from the black lagoon in the other two heads though :lol

Glad I have the original... the only DCD 13" figure I own.

I still prefer the original's costume with the green on the shoulders.

Dammit, I forgot to cancel this and Forbidden Planet just billed me! Why did i want to cancel? Cos I got the original off eBay a few weeks ago (I prefer the green over the shoulders look too) and decided to wait until I could find a cheaper re-release / Corps figure. Oh well... I will have GL plus his mentor to pose together!

I grabbed one today from my local shop. DC really needs to step up the QC on these for the price. The store got five of these in and on three of them the chest symbols were off center on the chest and the symbol was also slightly rotated so the lanterns looked tilted.

I will post some comparison pics with the first version later but the alternate heads are pretty neat. Tomar Re and the fish dude actually have translucent plastic fins which is a nice touch.

Fish Dude (NautKeiLoi)

He looks better without the helmet to me. Helmet has pretty good details, including sculpted speakers inside of it though.

thanks for the pix Natrix. Seems that the figure, the headsculpts in particular turned out better than expected.

Nice pics Natrix! :clap

I received mine yesterday and after you're post about off centre and off kilter GL symbols on the chest I had to check mine. At first I thought the symbol was off centre but I realised the cloth costume was just kinda pulled to one side after the figure was dressed in the factory if you get what I mean.

I'm really liking the DC Direct Deluxe figures as big n clunky as they are and despite some quality control issues.... looking forward to getting more.

Both of the 13" Batman figures I bought had what appeared to be off centre symbols on their chest but they just pulled into place when the costume was adjusted.

They are, on the whole, nice figures. Very striking and very reminiscent of the old Mego figures.

I know what you guys are saying about the possibility of the fabric being stretched but I carefully examined both the symbol placement and the fabric. The fabric wasn't stretched out and the symbols were noticeably off center not just a little. Even if the fabric was adjusted out of the box, I don't think they could be centered due to the distance from the outer edge of the symbol to the edge of the green fabric being off from side to side. Not to mention the symbols were also noticeably rotated and not straight as well.

Love your website shaun! It was your blog that finally made me decide to get into the DC Deluxe 13"-ers. Outstanding shots of them and other lines too, great stuff all round :bow

I'm not sure about whether getting into DCD 13" figs is a good thing, but thanks for visiting my site, Karaduin. :)

:confused:

What are you talking about? I have both the Hot Toys Superman/Clark Kent 2-In-1, and the HT Original Costume Batman Dark Knight fig with the Bruce Wayne head, and each comes with exactly one (1) body. Meaning, if you want to display both Supes and Kent or Batman and Wayne, you have to buy another Hot Toys or comparable body (as well as a suit of clothes for Bruce Wayne). What 2-in-1 set has Hot Toys released that allows you to display both figs together out of the box?

I'm not sure it's a good thing either but I can't help myself! I'm trying to get these as cheap as poss and not being a completist. After battling with the clunky body and acheiving a good pose they DO look great imo!

very nice shots there! I've been toying with the idea of getting this set form my LCS but I don't have many of the 13" figures

I have three of these and my "Abin" heads don't look like they have that much "make-up" on...did you touch these up? I always wanted to get one more for a Classic Hal but I'm okay right now having Hal from the first release and the three other Lanterns behind him.
