So the second and third figures from the Justice League New 52 series are starting to hit shelves. The first figure in the series, Batman, was fairly popular, and was difficult to find when it was first released in our area. After several delays, JMD Retail just got the Aquaman and Green Lantern action figures in stock. We have seen several Green Lantern figures recently with the movie figures and everything, but we do like this figure and the Justice League packaging that it comes in, compared to some of the Green Lantern carded figures that were released. This is the first Aquaman figure that we’ve gotten in a while, and it is worth the wait. This figure has nice detail, especially if you like the New 52 aquaman styling. We are happy to see what DC has done with this line so far. We are looking forward to the rest of the line, and then we are excited to compare these figures with the ArtFX statues that Kotobukiya will be releasing. It’s an exciting time to be a DC fan.
So with SDCC 2012 coming to an end, what did you find to be the most exciting? I know I caught some coverage on SpikeTV. I saw a short interview with Jim Lee that I found to be interesting. It looked like there was a lot of excitement at the event–I still wish I could have made it. Of all the news that came out, though, I think I am most interested in the New 52 ArtFX statues by Kotobukiya. Assuming that I like the pose, I tend to like statues a little more than the action figures, and the Superman and Green Lantern ArtFX were really neat. I’ve been happy with most of the Kotobukiya pieces that we’ve gotten recently, and I’m really looking forward to where they go with this new DC line. What news did you find most interesting this year, and what new figures/statues are you looking forward to?
