Young Justice figures - a rip off

As a cartoon, Young Justice is great (I’ve only seen the pilot movie) and I plan to check out the entire first season when they’re available on Netflix. Since I’ve been collecting Marvel Universe figures I’ve really been hungry for great looking 3 ¾ versions of the DC Universe. There hasn’t been any yet and I was hoping that the Young Justice figures would be those figures.

The figures being 4” wouldn’t bother me if it wasn’t for all the other things wrong with the figures. On the positive side, the figures look like their cartoon counterparts. On the negative side, these figures have almost no articulation and some of the figures have weird poses (on the Batman & Robin 2 pack, Batman has his wrists toward you and his arms are curled like he’s lifting invisible weights).

The basic figures run in the $10 range (a good $1 to $1.50 more than the superior Marvel Universe figures) and the 6 inch figures run in the $20 range. The 6 inch figures are a better deal with lots of accessories and articulation but the 4” figures are a complete waste of time and it shouldn’t be long before they’re canceled.
