DC Collectibles does a great job with their action figures. Their current line from the New 52 are all in scale to each other and it's always fun to see who you can get next. With the holidays coming up, these figures make great additions to your wish lists when people ask. They make great gifts for friends or family that are into the characters.

DC Collectibles has released some Teen Titans figures. They have one for Red Robin, Kid Flash, Wonder Girl, and Superboy (click each name to check out the description over at DC's online shop). I really want the Red Robin figure!

Just by looking at these figures you can see one of the biggest problems the Titans had in the New 52, a bad color scheme. All of them are wearing either red, yellow, or black, with Bunker contributing a little purple. The team was made up of too many hot colors, no greens, blues or whites among the team, and that bad mix of colors made the book even less enjoyable then it already was. That's what's nice about this new run, there is a healthy mix of colors and looks to balance out the team.

All that aside, the costumes themselves are very nice and these are some good looking figures.

Gonna go old school, The Judas Contract (http://www.comicvine.com/judas-contract/4045-40760/). Not only great action but kind of a coming of age feel. Titans are shown how truly awful people can be.

Superboy is my favorite Teen Titan because of his determination and perseverance. Even when the odds are wildly stacked against him, he fights to the last. Also, 90s Superboy had such a flair!

And here's a link to Superboy's page:

I don't know if they count but the justice titans in Superman/Batman #60 - Mash Up, Part 1.

Something about the combination of these characters is whimsical and yet awesome. Nightlantern might be my favorite

I'm not entirely sure if it counts, but I really loved Graduation Day. For the lasting effects that came from the event, to the overall feel of it. Like these characters had really hit a point where they transcended what they once were as kid heroes/heroines.

@captainmarvel4ever: Meh Titans pretty much usually always have red on atleast (Robin/Red,Green,Yellow; Aqualad/Red,Blue,Yellow; Kid Flash/Red,Yellow; Wonder Girl/Red,Blue,White; Speedy/Red,Black,Yellow)

The originals which show up here. They could off added more colors though.

Actually that's something I noticed from the first time I saw the series, but your right Linkara did say that and I agree with him. I like the tron outfit on Superboy, it's cool, it's dynamic, and it give a lot for the ladies to look at ;)

This was an incredibly hard question .... But I think I'm going to have to go with "A Kids Game" by Geoff Johns and Mckone and the cover to Teen Titans issue one

http://www.comicvine.com/teen-titans-1-teen-titans/4000-111044/.

Before I read this book, I had only known the Titans from the cartoon (which I was dangerously obsessed with lol). I was pretty shocked to learn that the team actually existed in the comics and had an immense and colorful history filled with character knew and ones that I was suddenly inspired to know more about. The arc itself was fantastically done. I was developed an immense respect for Tim Drake, and aching sympathy for Superboy, an adoration for Wonder Girl and Bart Allen. Despite not having a previous connection to these character I developed a listing love for each one of them, especially Bart who I probably connected with the most at the time. I've been a superhero fan since I was young but this book is what made me a comic fan.

P.S Saturday Is my birthday......just randomly throwing that out there.....no hidden agenda at all....

Easily, The Judas Contract

It's a surprisingly precient storyline. Terra is an utter sociopath she isn't mind controlled, she wasn't slowly turned no she was just evil to begin with. At the sametime its some just great melodrama with Terra's just pure hatred and the backstory of Slade and JEricho.

Without a doubt its Titans/Young Justice: Graduation Day.

Before YJ became the Teen Titans, my big dream for every member of my favorite young team was for each of them to slowly move up to the Titans ranks. Seeing them side by side was amazing, and having the end result being a nearly full team graduation makes me truly appreciative of what that story did.

Gotta go with The Judas Contract id say that really kept my attention during the time more so than others . I thought overall it was a great story arc start to finish . http://www.comicvine.com/the-new-teen-titans-the-judas-contract/4050-37465/

Oh regarding topic of Teen Titans :

I don't think Marv Wolfman - George Perez New Teen Titans is same level as Claremont - Byrne X-men . Before everyone gets mad and angry at me, remember Claremont - Byrne first that start the X-men, then DC decide to hire Marv Wolfman and George Perez which at that time works at Marvel to somewhat try to do success with Teen Titans. Also Claremont - Byrne redefines X-men and make X-men popular and relevant until today. Wolfman-Perez make Teen Titans popular only at that time only and soon popularity of Teen Titans begins to decrease. Another factor is that during Byrne - Claremont X-men, we can name many great stories that have been produce such as Dark Phoenix Saga, Days of Future Past, God Loves Man Kills etc while the most popular storyline from All New Teen Titans is Judas Contract...Also Claremont - Byrne X-men have created many great X-men villains but New Teen Titans only created one big villains which is Deathstroke only. Also Claremont X-men makes Wolverine become one of the most popular superheroes of all time

Look...I read many DC Universe Comics but I do think some of us that consider New Teen Titans is same level as Claremont X-men is not accurate. I do think New Teen Titans is good comics but it is not same level as legendary run of Claremont X-men

Worth mention : as much I love Jack Kirby, I always will say that original X-men by Stan Lee - Jack Kirby is their worst collabration. I love their fantastic four and The Galactus Trilogy is pretty much the best events in comics at that time and it is still great

"the insiders" which was a 4 part crossover arc between teen titans and the outsiders. Great story with huge repercussions for both teams. a definite read for any tt fan.

Here is the cover for the first part for good measure, its a good one.

Geoff Johns' run on Teen Titans from 2003 to 2007 was EPIC. Every arc with Mike Mckone or Tony Daniel on pencils was awesome! If i had to pick a favorite arc it would probably be Titans of Tomorrow. The amazing action/art, and the dialogue/writing/tension/drama was what all comic creators should strive for

Young Justice was the comic that made me love comics, and when I heard that my favorite characters from the team were graduating to the Titans, I was excited. But then, as the series got darker and darker, tying into the various Crises in DC at the time, I realized that the series didn't have that special balance between fun super heroics and poignant character work that YJ had.

But then I found something that did.

Loading Video...

Dismissed by many for it's overly comedic style, Teen Titans TAS (sorry, you guys don't have a dedicated page for the 'toon, so just scroll down to the Animated section) was capable of delivering on powerful stories that challenged our heroes and the audiences watching them, all without breaking it's remit as a fun, age-appropriate action adventure.

The best example? Look no further than Slade's slow, calculated seduction (minds out of the gutter, slashers) of Robin over the course of Season 1. His entire criminal campaign served only to make the Boy Wonder more and more obsessed with defeating his arch enemy, even at the expense of his teammates. And Slade's twisted final move to make Robin his protege? Surprisingly dark, enhanced by Ron Perlman's masterful, terrifying performance.

Between all that, streamlined (and improved) adaptations of The Judas Contract and The Terror of Trigon and a heavy dose of Silver Age imagination? This is the best version of the Teen Titans, in comics or out.

I am absolutely in love with the way DC Comics went with Teen Titans GO!

It gives a whole new take to the iconic team of young heroes, and still manages to captivate the great spirit of the team! I'm 24 years old and STILL find myself watching this series. Couldn't have been more satisfied with this hilarious and light-hearted imagining of such an awesome creation. It made it hard to choose because the rough feel to the Teen Titans is just too amazing, but Teen Titans Go! gave DC Comics something to add to their plate.

P.S. I've been wanting these four action figures for sooooooo long! I have all the Justice League New 52 action figures, but couldn't spend anymore money. These would TRULY be the best thing ever!!!

Geoff Johns Teen Titans run is what got me into comics when I was in the 7th grade. It had a perfect roster for my interests at the time with some of the characters from the original teen titans animated show, and some legacy characters that I could very easily relate to. Recently I got all my old Trades from my parents house and gave them to my girlfriend who is a 9th grade reading teacher to a under privilege public school. She keeps them in her class room and lets kids check them out and take home from time to time. She has said the kids faces lit up when she brought them in and that many kids can't afford to buy comics.

My favorite story that has not been listed yet is in issue 5, Which contains the evolution of Bart Allen from impulse to kid flash and includes awesome Deathstroke action.

I have to go with the Judas Contract on this one:

http://www.comicvine.com/judas-contract/4045-40760/

Yeah, the actual story arc played out over Tales of the Teen Titans #42, #43, #44, and Tales of the Teen Titans Annual #3, but it connected to so many thinks Wolfman and Perez introduced through the beginning of their run. Deathstroke picked up on Ravager's old contract with H.I.V.E., we got Deathstroke's origin story, we were introduced to Jericho and Terra, Terra betrayed the team, Dick Grayson took on the identity of Nightwing for the first time, there is so much stuff here, and it only covered 4 issues! This is the callback storyline I always go to when I discuss with others how dangerous Deathstroke could be. Of course he's got enhanced physicals, but the patience and mentality to come up with this plan? The prep work involved? Getting Terra on the team, and getting the Titans to trust her, even with her deteriorating mental state? That mind is what makes Deathstroke truly scary.

I've always enjoyed comics, but in my opinion, The Judas Contract is real storytelling.
