"Got my Superman today.  Nice."

So...um...why no picture?  You can't come in here and say you got it and not post a picture, especially when you are the only one with the danged thing!

I got Superman yesterday. He is great ! Very nice paint job, the work on the eyes is awesome, you can see the pupils of the eyes very clearly.
The cape and the body are from two different pieces put together (unlike Thor for example).
My only complaint is that Supe's is far more less muscular than Batman !!! The muscle density is less than Hawkeye's for example. The emblem is very well painted.
Another complaint about the book is that most of the drawings are from Jim Lee (like Bat's book). There is a complete page about JB's work on the Man of Steel.
Like Batman's book, no poster, no technical data (speed of flight, the mass he can lift, ...)
I will send some pics as soon as I can, like a Superman/Thor face to face, so you can see for yourselves the quality of the figurine.

Next : Flash !!!

That's such a perfect pose for Superman. There's so much they could have
done in the way of dramatic, action-packed shots. bursting chains, even a
pseudo-flying shot, with leg bent and arm thrust forward. But to capture
him like that, just that fraction of a second before he takes to the air -- it
gives me chills! (And it doesn't hurt at all that in the best John Byrne
"tradition" he is clearly "leading" with his chest!)

If you notice on the extra magazine that comes with the DC Figurine Magazine on the back page talking about the making of these models on no1 frame it looks like a tiny model of Thunderbird one on the model makers desk.

Finally made it to Ireland. Picked Batman up the other day. Just wondering where to put him. Have to make room near the Marvel guys.

I've avoided the Marvel ones because I don't need more stuff accumulating around here, but that Superman looks so iconic and right...

Called made. Superman will be waiting for me...in French version. I had to give special instructions to my mom for the quality of the painting. I think she just put me in the " definitively I don't know where all this came from but not from me " category.

She is still ver supportive.

Man. I can't afford these, but that Darkseid is so tempting!

I am beginning to wonder where to put the DC figurines. I find it cool to put Batman next to Marvel's finest fighters (since I know he will beat the crap out of them anyway ...) but Superman seems to be reluctant to be put next to the Scarlet Witch (you know, Kryptonians don't like magic ...)

Eaglemoss have finally debited my credit card so it looks like my original subscription is back in action. I'll end up with two issue ones but you can never have enough Batman. Can't wait for that Darkseid!

edit - Looking into it, I think the charge is for my daughter's ballet magazine so I still haven't been charged for the DC collection yet. Have any of the other guys who originally subscribed last year been charged yet?

Excellent Darkseid!

Received word yesterday from my English "contact" that he has received the
Batman and, conveniently, will be making a business trip to Connecticut this
week. So hopefully by the weekend I will have a picture to post.

After reading the list posted by Lionel, I noticed that Cliff Steele and Etrigan were missing, damned !!!

I don't think I will get them all, since I am more Marvel than DC, but I think I will manage to find some place for the JLA and the Teen Titans (and some villains, of course ...) But I don't intend to buy Alfred, Lois or Gordon ... I hope Eaglemoss will not come up with the idea of releasing Aunt May, Mary Jane or Jonah Jameson ...Well, they can, but they will have to release Sasquatch first...

First arrival. Sorry for the blurry image. My camera simply did not want to
co-operate today, showing me a perfectly clear picture in the "viewfinder".
then blurred when the shutter clicked.

Here's a somewhat less blurry shot, minus background details which lend
scale, but seem to upset the auto-focus.

I subscribed to the original edition, got nothing except the letter saying I would automatically subscribe to the new edition. Heard nothing since. Think I'll give it another week then give them a call.
