Hi all, it's been a while since I was on these here boards, rl suddenly got very busy for a month (holiday, yaay! lots of job apps and no interviews, booo).

At any rate, I was reading through some recently located Impulse back issues last night when I noticed an advert for some rather snazzy YJ statues.  Being a massive Impulse (and YJ generally) fan my eyes practically did that bug out thing you mostly get in cartoons.

Has anyone seen or does anyone own these YJ statues:
Superboy:

Robin:

Impulse:

Holy crap that's a good Bart likeness.
And quite honestly, I want the lot.

Wow, never knew those existed, and I thought I knew everything DCD had ever done!

That Impulse statue is the pick of the lot. The other two don't quite nail the character IMO but that IS Bart!

Nice!

I remember them coming out (at least a couple of them anyhoo).
Because they're not big sellers you may find some stores could still have them for sale.

OMG. The Robin and Superboy statues on ebay are going for over a hundred quid at buy it now.  Impulse is on auction and is at 22 quid now, but then shipping from america is over 30 quid..
I think I'll have to be patient.

A hundred pounds seems pretty enthusiastic. Is that the bidding price or is it just a "Buy it now"?

100 quid is for buy it now.  admittedly they are from the US so there's a currency conversion issue, but still.

That Impulse statue is tempting. I'm not going to get in a bidding war with you if I go for it, am I Saranga?

Hi guys!

I THINK one of the comic shops near my mom has/had the set of three in stock. I'll check to see if they still do when I go down to see her this week.

I'll post the results and the price when I get back!

I did in fact win the Impulse statue for a price I am happy to call reasonable. Getting it shipped to my parents and the rerouted here to avoid the huge shipping charge. I think this will be my birthday present (Oct 16) from my parents.  Grin

I will be sure to pictify and review when he arrives!
