  • We already took a look at the Batman Play Arts based on The Dark Knight Rises, but there’s more where that came from! We’ve got Batman, Robin, Catwoman, the Joker and Harley based on the Arkham City game designs, along with the black and white colorways of Batman and the Joker that they had on sale at the event. I really wish Catwoman had her top zippered up, though I understand it’s based on the game where she is busting out. If only every Catwoman was as tasteful as Anne Hathaway!

  • I’ve never been shy about my dislike of the Ame-Comi line. I find the designs overdone and tacky, and the faces border on derp. However, the line always has a lot of fans, and DC Direct had several new and old designs on display at SDCC. There are two new Ravens, which I must admit have pretty fantastically sculpted capes, but also seem to fall into the neverending repaints the line is so fond of. I swear, half the releases are just redone versions of old figures! Actually, looking through the gallery, it may be more than half. Two of them really stood out to me, though for different reasons. Barda, for her hilariously large and unrealistic bust, and Mera, for her surprisingly gorgeous design. In fact, I really would love to own this figure if her quality control ends up passable. So, readers, what do you think of this line? Do the designs interest you, or would you like to see them try out something fresh?
