    Nice! July and August, that's two sets practically back to back. I need a new job.

    They might still be trying to get ASM out this year with TMNT.

    That's most likely supergirl. Who in the new 52 is a member of the red lanterns. It would've been nice to see superboy prime. He was a big character in the original story.
    I believe that the original press release lists Superboy Prime as one of the characters.

    It will be weird if we get Red Lantern Supergirl before regular Supergirl but it would still be cool to get her.

    We've seen these 17 Characters on cards, and we know what their dice look like:
    Anti-Monitor (Retailer starter set solicitation)
    Batman (GTM article)
    The Flash (WizKids Facebook post)
    Guy Gardner (Box art)
    Hal Jordan (Retailer solicitation)
    John Stewart (Retailer solicitation)
    Kyle Rayner (GTM)
    Lantern Battery (GTM)
    Larfleeze (Box art)
    Lex Luthor (Retailer solicitation)
    Lyssa Drak (GTM)
    Parallax (Box art)
    Sinestro (Retailer solicitation)
    Starfire (Facebook)
    Warth (GTM)
    Wonder Girl (Box art)
    Wonder Woman (Facebook)
    [running count:17]

    From press releases, we can also confirm the following 8 characters:
    The Atom (die also pictured on side of gravity feed)
    Atrocitus (incorrectly spelled in GTM, but it counts) (die pictured on facebook)
    Beast Boy (die shown on side of gravity feed)
    Jade (her die might be the small GL symbol in a white circle on a green die, under the S in DICE MASTERS on the starter set)
    Kilowog (die shown on front of gravity feed and starter box)
    Mogo (his die might be the white GL symbol in a green circle/planet on a white die on the right border of the window of the starter set)
    Raven (die shown on side of gravity feed)
    Superboy Prime (die shown on side of gravity feed)
    [running count: 25]

    From the Facebook post, we can likely add the other three Corps' leaders, based on pictures of their dice sporting their Corps' logos:
    Saint Walker
    Star Sapphire
    (Atrocitus' die appears here, too, but is strangely the only leader not represented by his corps' symbol. Odd...)
    [running count: 28]

    Additional dice that are easily identified include:
    Fatality (White battle staff on dark pink die)
    Mera (yellowish/gold crown on red die)
    Scarecrow (brown hat on yellow die)
    Spectre (yellowish hood on red die)
    [running count: 32]

    In the pictures, that leaves:
    An Orange Indigo lantern staff on a dark purple die (Almost has to be Munk, but I could be wrong) (seen in the top left of the "dice pile", but easier to see on the front of the starter set)
    A Power ring on an olive-coloured action die (no fancy idea here beside 'Lantern Power Ring') (bottom right corner die in the pile)
    A messy/pointy red circle on a light pink die (Queen Aga'po? Miri? Predator? something else? I can't even make out the correct orientation, so my guesses are just that) (bottom left corner)
    A Sinestro symbol in a black circle on a yellow die (Arkillo, perhaps?) (top right corner of the pile)
    [running count: 36]

    This leaves 4 dice that have not been pictured, or are too cut off in the packaging images to know that they are unique.
    I'm guessing the four Black Lanterns (Batman's dice is pictured on facebook; Aquaman's was in the GTM release) are only Super-Rares, and not part of the 40 commons, so I didn't count those.
    Who else am I missing?
    Of the Deputy Lanterns, we've accounted for all except Ganthet.
    Of the New Guardians, we've accounted for all except Bleez and Glomulus.
    Trouble is, there are only 3 spaces for card names from A-K left in the 16 spots before card #51 ('Kyle Rayner').
    We can't fit Arkillo, Bleez, Ganthet & Glomulus into three spots. Some or all of these will not be in the set. Bleez in particular gets a strike, because The Spectre seems to be taking up a Red Lantern roster slot, instead of Dex-Starr or someone with more appeal.
    If my olive 'Lantern Power Ring' action is named like the one in JL (despite having new die art) it takes card slot #53, and fills out the L's nicely between #52 ('Lantern Battery') and #56 ('Lyssa Drak')
    My mystery purple staff (it has to be Munk!) and my mystery star sapphire seem to be latter-half, alphabetically, then. This still leaves an open slot for someone who's name starts with M,N,O,P,Q,R,S,T,U or V. Helpful clue, I know.
    Green Lanterns seem under-represented, at just 4 (though not as poor a showing as the Orange Lanterns; we assumed they couldn't produce more than three, and 2 could well be their max). There was also this line in the GTM article: "Some fan-favorite Green Lanterns will be making their first appearance in Dice Masters as well, so get ready for Jade, Kilowog, Mogo, and more."
    "And more..." seems disingenuous, if we only have one additional Green Lantern, but I'm ready to rule out fan-favourites that start with Abi-; Ari-; Boo-; Ch'-; Gal-; Gra-; Han-; Kat-; Lai-; ...
    That could leave Salaak; Morro; Tomar-Tu (not -Re); Soranik Natu; Sodam Yat; or Stel? Hardly as impressive a list as the first half of the alphabet...
    But, maybe the article lied (it did mess up some points on rules and spell Atrocitus wrong, after all), and Syed fills out our 4th Orange Lantern roster spot to give us an even 4 red, orange, green, blue, indigo and violet lanterns. We'd also get a full 8-member Sinestro Corps Dice Masters team, right out of the box so-to-speak. Oof. They are heavily represented here. Parallax really caught me off-guard, and will make a very strange inclusion if he's the only Entity of the seven to appear.

    Either way, I can't wait for more spoilers!

    @Zauriel , what 8 characters do you think are in the starter? I've got Batman, Hal Jordan, Sinestro, Kyle Rayner, Guy Gardner, Anti-Monitor. Any idea of the purple and orange/brown dice are (cf. this pic)?

    Yep! I found something awesome:
    Retailer solicitation
    Guy Gardner
    Hal Jordan
    John Stewart
    Kyle Rayner
    Lex Luthor

    Lots and lots of Earthlings with power rings

    Also, here's a better picture of the box for you:
    Starter set
    You can see that Lex's die is orange with green ink

    Thank you for your note on the wiki page, by the way, to the pictures of the print article.
