Looks very promising but Mattel does have a habit of royally screwing things up with their DC lines.

Wizard's site is incredibly slow. I could never get it to load. Luckily someone at RTM took the pics of this line and posted them there. Some really obscure choices there, and that's a good thing. Good mix of name characters and ones I'm not even sure about! I noticed no Superman, Wonder Woman or Flash shown. Probably holding them back to support the line later.

Mezco's got a 3.75 inch Hellboy line, too.

Honestly, the sculpting's pretty uneven. The Supergirl and Wonder Girl look terrible.

Hawkman looks horrible. Too "McGuiness"-like.

To be honest I am more excited about this line then I have been about any action figure line to come out (to retail stores) in years! I can not wait they remind me a lot of the Super Powers line which I love. Plus you end up with tons of different guys and they won't cost 15 bucks each! I love the idea of Gotham PD and Lexcorp goons. I will agree Hawkman looks very McGuiness like and while I am not a huge McGuiness fan his figures sell like mad at my comic shop.

I don't get it. These figures are part of the SAME line? Then why all the inconsistencies?
Some figs have more articulation (Green Lantern), some have less articulation (Golden Age Flash), and some none at all (Black Adam)! Some have a nice flat color, others are glossy. Some have regular proportions, other have goofy manga proportions.
From the looks of these pics, I know I'll get the Green Lantern figs, the classic Aquaman and Black Manta (from this pic http://lib.store.yahoo.net/lib/wizarduniverse/nytfdcu17.jpg).
But I won't touch any of those glossy manga-looking figs.

Well they are not the same line. One is in 6 inch scale the other is in 3 and 3/4 inch scale. The 6 inch line has more articulation then the 3 and 3/4 inch. The glossy figures and the figures with no articulation are due to the fact that these are hand painted prototypes, or so I am assuming. But I am no expert just sharing what I have put together myself.
