I believe you can purchase them from the website single the day they release but they sell out so fast it can be rather hard to do. I'm sure some will hit ebay for inflated prices if you really need one. Also, the DC Direct (I think thats what they were) will probably be going cheap once these come out as people will want to replace.

Packaging is very nice. Helps to justify price. Also has a oversized Bio/Trading Card that I left taped inside the package. I'd like to be able to find the room to display all six of the boxes.
The figure is very clean and looks nice. The pin stripes and shoes/coat are very impressive. The coat and shoes look very good in person. Nice job on shading. The base is cool. I do have a few issues. The figure is limited when it comes to posing. The gun is way too big. My super nerd complaint is that the bottom of the shoes don't have any details. It would have been a cool nod to the comics if there were wear holes in the bottom of the shoes. I remember when Rorschach is arrested in the graphic novel, there is a panel showing holes in his socks and shoes. But that's a super nerd complaint. Also, the head does not move up and down and makes the face look very flat. It would have been cool if the hands could be put into the pockets of the jacket or if it came with an alternate head or a diary. I'd even settle for sugar cubes
Size comparison with the only other DCUC figure I have, New 52 Batman Unlimited. I like that figure also. I guess these two figures have gotten me into collecting DCUC.
Just to show how oversized the gas powered grappling gun is. The thing is the same size as the version used in the movie bust next to it.
