Meanwhile, DC Direct didn't waste any time as they showed up at SDCC 2011 with action figures of the revamped Justice League. The knock, in my opinion, against DC Direct action figures, it their lack of articulation. They are sometimes missing valuable joints in the abdominal, hips, legs and arms that give you a little more range of motion. My other gripe is that their action figures are not always in scale with different DC Direct sets. I wish they were more in scale with Mattel's DCUC toy line as well. But the bottom line is DC Direct does produce some really good looking action figures and they have a bigger variety of characters available so they should not be overlooked by collectors. Lets check out the new look Justice League.
Very little change in Batman's look as well. Most noticeably is the lack of underpants (lol). It actually makes his outfit look a little plain.
Missing from the DC Direct Justice League action figure line up was Cyborg. He's seems to be promoted as one of the main members but a Cyborg action figure was M.I.A. at the SDCC.
These action figure will be available later this year so be sure to keep your eye out for them. As usual, I'm a bigger fan of eBay and make the bulk of my collection purchases from there. There is always a deal to be found. To see eBay's selection of DC Direct action figures, click here
Hopefully Mattel comes out with some new information surrounding their intentions with the DC New Universe reboot. For those of you who are still big fans of the DC Universe Classics - eBay also has a very large variety of Mattel's cool toy line - click here
