Most of all I want the Batmobile, but I'll try to get all these figures. I do hope Mattel may sell them at local stores here :hmgrin:
New frustration for me.....I have a DCUC sub, and all of the offerings really aren't doing much for me. I actually got the sub for my kids, because they were heavy into DCUC, but the figure selection is really bad.....I mean, really bad. I won't be DCUC subbing again.....
^ I almost subbed, but decided to pass, as 3 subs would have been alot to handle along with playing catch up on MOTUC. Kinda glad I didn't because I only want Mallah, Huntress & maybe Larfleeze so far.
I did not subscribe either since most figures were not a big deal for me, especially oversized ones, but I do really hope that Huntress shall not be some sort of DCUC sub exclusive ala Fangman is for MOTU.
BTW, have you seen Mattel DC SDCC exclusive 66's Batman Batusi?
Personally, I could have lived without Wally as Flash - when I get him, he's going right in the variants box, but I can't complain about his inclusion...far too many people have been asking for him for too long, and he's a logical variant, so I can't begrudge his fans. I do wish they'd not given him a monthly slot, but rather, found some other way of getting him out there, but it's not a huge deal for me.
Other than that, I'm completely happy with the character selection we've seen thus far. I do wish they'd gone a different direction with Red Hood (using the Mr. Terrific body with jacket), but otherwise I have to agree with Dr. Kain on this one - Elongated Man, Phantom Stranger, Fire, Huntress, Captain Marvel Jr., and M. Mallah & The Brain are all classic characters that fill holes in the collection...heck, now we have a complete Satellite-Era-JLA. I know the Rainbow Lanterns aren't everyone's cup of tea, but personally, it's good to have Saint Walker and Larfleeze.
I would like to see more villains, though, and hope we see a few in the last remaining slots of this year.
Really, at this point, they've done just about all of the A, B, and C-list characters. Those few that remain - Ice, Vixen and Ra's al Ghul come to mind, are probably on the short-list, as we've discussed. Once you get beyond them, the remaining characters are all more generally obscure, and I think everyone has a legitimate claim...but as they're not as 'main', then I think you'll see more of some people being really happy with them, and others feeling their wish lists aren't being tagged.
For example, as I've probably said before, I'd absolutely want a Zauriel figure. More Batman villains of any era, or Flash rogues, etc. I know a lot of people want to see Johnny Thunder or Ma Hunkel, or the Chief, or more members of the LOSH (I hear Dawnstar's name a lot). And hopefully they'll all get made - but the only way we're going to see any of them is through the sub, which I think is doing a pretty good job of trying to plug the major holes and finish out the line. I just think sometimes you have to deal with one or two figures you're not crazy about to get the ones you do want - which in a way is not dissimilar from having to buy a figure in a wave you don't really want to get the C&C part.
The selection is a very good one. Of course with that said my plans this year were only to pick up Saint Walker, Larfleeze, and Huntress.
while I love Captain Marvel never got into Marvel Jr. Fire is a cool figure etc, but as I am trying to cut down on spending this year a pass for me. The others are all great but fall into the same realm as fire. I would love to see a Ra's and Indigo 1 to finish off the leaders of the Rainbow Corps. I probably should have gotten two Atrocitus one to keep packed and one to open like I did with Walker. But I have also debated opening up my DCUC figures. I just live a in dusty place and cleaning a plastic bubble is so much easier than an actual action figure.
I have sold most of my Mattel DC figures, but only because I am getting into the Sideshow Premium Formats and I just don't have the space to display 200+ action figures so something had to go. They were all boxed up and I don't think I would ever have a place to display them so now some other collectors can enjoy them. I have kept a few of my favorites though (Metal Men, Etrigan, Dead Man, Spectre, Swamp Thing, Constantine, Uncle Sam, Phantom Stranger)
Well, for me, yes, I'd like them all, but I only have about 20 DCUC guys, so I'm not cherry picking, I'm cherry prioritizing. :D
Hard to justify Saint Walker & Phantom Stranger when I don't have personal favorites like Lobo, Deathstroke, Black Adam, Joker, Harley, etc. Now if they put 2 CAC's in next years, I'm sold. Huge sucker for those.
Now, if they have sold the sub with an oversized Doomsday, that would have been different
besides the Adam West Batman stuff the only figure I would want it a LARGE Doomsday and the DKR batman.
I really don't understand. Are you asking a question, or are you confused as to what my post said? What does what you, or anyone else own have to do with my decision to sub? Oh yeah, nothing. You quoted the middle of a sentence, out of context and are now what? suggesting I should have subbed anyway because you own a Mad Love 2 pack? Uh nah, I'm good. Maybe in a movie year. :hmwink:
I didn't bash subbers or the character selection. I simply stated MY reason for not subbing. I even said I would like them all, but buying my favorites first takes precedence.
So, basically, whats your beef, Stu?
Because you were making it sound like they never released any of those characters.
We do need a few more Legionairres, though, if another big set isn't in the offing...
The only other members of the LOSH about whom I've heard any quantifiable fan chatter are Dawnstar and Mon-El - not to say they mightn't make others, but are any of them really in demand? (My LOSH awareness is somewhat more limited than the rest of the DCU.)
I wonder if it might not be a good idea for Mattel to revisit the two-pack concepts - except instead of going to obscure characters, doing themed sets to supplement the sub, and finish out those teams. Ra's & Talia, Doc Magnus & Chief, Johnny Thunder & Thunderbolt, etc. - even one a quarter could go a long way...especially for characters who might not be strong single-carded sellers.
