Being in the USA, anyone know where I can get one of those Rooftop Batman figurines that Eaglemoss gave away with the UK subscriptions?

(I don't see any on Ebay)

Looks tall.  Is that Tim Drake?  Is he an adult already?

It's Tim Drake. He is far more muscular than the Captain America figurine (bat's milk has more effects than the super soldier serum ...)

Green Lantern this week !!!

Hm! Existing subscribers will automatically be entered. A Blighty-side
friend of mine subscribed for me, back before the first figures were
released. Be weird if I won!

Well, back in the 80's, their slogan was, "DC: Where the Action Is."

One of the favorite Moments of Mirth up at Marvel was a DC ad that ran as a
double-page spread in the middle of their books, and referred to "THE DC
LINE OF SUPERSTARS". At a glance, it read, all too appropriately, as "The
Decline of Superstars".

That's pretty funny, JB. That was in the mid-seventies, I think, and there
wasn't a lot to sing about at DC around that time. My favorite titles at the
time were Justice League of America and Legion of Super-Heroes.

Well, the JLA is almost complete ! I got Green Lantern last week and Wonder woman is expected next week.

GL is fine, I like the way the lantern is fitted into his hand. The paint job is fine, but could be better. I hope EM intend to release more characters from the GL Corp (John Stewart, ...)

He will look cool next to Thanos ...

Looks like they are following the current model and making Darkseid about
a head too tall.

He's a good head taller than Superman in the photos I've seen, and just taller than the Hulk.
