oh tough one?

I've got the Jim Lee Hush figure, which is awesome, but I do like the Kubert one because it looks nice and chunky...

You looking at get either one?

Hi,

I just picked up the "Batman and Son" figure (along with a Zipline Batman and a Microman Comic Batman) as late Christmas presents and I think its a really cool figure. Looks great on my desk.

Are you able to see the figures side by side or are you ordering online?

The Batgirl action figure looks hot! There's also this 2-pack action figure coming out in May 2010!

Yes I have and I'm really happy I did!

My local comic store displayed this recently and I quickly grabbed it. Apparently, this version of Tim Sale's Batman only comes in a boxed set, which also includes a Joker figure and the Long Halloween graphic novel. The guy who bought the boxed set only wanted the graphic novel and decided to sell the 2 figures. This is definitely one of the better-looking Batman action figures around!

PostSubject: Differences between Long Halloween and Dark Victory Batman figures.   Mon Jan 25, 2010 11:22 am

Hi,

Glad to see you found a figure AndrewT. Can anyone tell me what differences are there between the Long Halloween Batman figure and the Dark Victory version? From what I can see, it looks like there is just a different head sculpt on the actual figure itself. It looks like the Dark Victory has an uglier facial expression but are there any other differences in the body?

As far as I can tell, both the Long Halloween and Dark Victory series have the "ugly" Batman head sculpt. The new better-looking head sculpt is only exclusive for the Long Halloween Collector Set. As for the differences in the other body parts, there might be some minor ones.

Here's the DC Direct link if you need to check it out:

Oh I have the the Long Halloween Figures too. I love them both. The Joker's gun looking frickin' sweat. So does Batman's cape. I love how long it is too.

I like all of the figures that were shown in this thread! I've got to say, though, I love the look of the Long Halloween one the best. Although, I really dig the Batman with accessories one.

Hi guys,

I've found another set of DC Direct Batman action figures that will beat the Long Halloween figure hands down! It's coming out in early June. Here's the link:

Looks pretty good. Reminds me of this one I've had my eye on but I just don't see myself getting 'cause of the price

Geez... I've just bought my first Batman figurine last week... but I think I will need some more really soon.
The Batman figurines on the right of the last two post are really cool.
I've been collecting so many comics about Batman now that I think I will save some bucks for cool stuff like that.

I have a question regarding the action figures and statues.
I know that they lost a lot of their value when they are displayed instead of in their original box. But don't you think it's a lot cooler to see an action figure or a statue near your Batman trade and hardcover collection instead of their original package ?

I have my opinion about it but I'm curious to hear from you !

Well, according to collectors, there are basically 2 grades of action figures - Standard Grade and Collector Grade.

Standard Grade action figures are those that are taken out from their packaging and displayed on the shelves. Collector Grade are those still sealed in their packaging. Both are still highly collectible. The only difference is that a Collector Grade action figure can fetch a much higher price in terms of its value.

Personally, I prefer to display my action figures on the shelf. Smile

Its something I fight with everyday because there isn't anything better than seeing your action figuers lined up and displayed along your wall in there original package. On the flip side they also look fantastic displayed all round your collection. I tend to open my favorites and put them around my desk.

I'm glad DC Direct have gone back to clamshell packaging because the boxes can't go on the wall and take up to much room.

I can't wait for the Batman Reborn series.
