I wonder if they know / care about things like dvd release dates anyway, when planning set release dates. The cinema release they care about, tying in for DVDs doesn't seem to matter.
Might also have been to do with release dates varying in different countries.
I’ve been thinking about it and I’d really have preferred all the main cast Friends are Family variants in the CMF line (Batman, Alfred, Robin, Batgirl & Joker) and use the manor for something else - mainly because I want the FaF figs and can’t justify the cost of the Jokers Manor set.
Harley’s inclusion annoys me because it makes me want the matching Catwoman and Poison Ivy so feels like another incomplete set.
I could have lived without the beachwear figures, they are fine and have a few nice parts, but as individual figures they aren’t particularly interesting versions of those characters to me.
I know there might have been a licensing issue or something but had they included an Agent Smith, Flying Monkey and Evil Gremlin (without Stripe’s Mohican style hair tuft) then there would be 3 army builder characters to sell multiples.
