Usually when there's a DC Collectibles solicit group I end up posting all of them because there only ends up being like one that I don't want to talk about. This time I'm posting the few that I either liked or that needed commenting on. If you want to see the crappy ones then check out DC's blog if you haven't already.
First up is Bats on a horse which is obviously from The Dark Knight Returns and it would be perfect for any coffee table. Not mine a fucking cat would just push it off the edge like the damn thing was in a land dispute with it, but a guy can dream. I like that DC's cashing in on this by calling it the "year of the horse edition." Translation: new sku, new box, reissued statue. That's the theme of this solicit group, repackaging.

I doubt I'd get Robin since I just don't care, but I will be getting Poison Ivy and maybe the Man Bat from Batman: The Animated Series. Why the fuck did it take them this long to make good figures? I had an old Batman: TAS fig and it sucked.

You know what's great about this statue? It stands almost 9" tall and it costs $100 bucks, but it's still considered a "mini" statue. The bigger kicker is that it's holiday themed which imply that some tasteful fucking nerd is only going to display this during Christmas making sure to box up smooching Wonder Woman and Superman well before the New Year... who the fuck would want this even? Someone that still believes that people need mistletoe to kiss I suppose.
SUPERMAN AND WONDER WOMAN HOLIDAY KISS MINI STATUE

Oh DC... way to take a great idea and ruin it by cashing in on an existing model and giving it a holiday face lift. I love Christmas and I really like the original Bombshell statue for Harley Quinn, but I would never buy this... maybe that tasteful nerd that packs and unpacks his holiday themed statues will get this one too!
