    Yes, I will say it up front, I am not a Marvel person. In fact, I stopped reading their comics the moment Brand New Day came out.

    And if this is what ML has to offer, then they should have stayed gone. Why not do a regular Spider-Man? Regular Wolverine? Regular Captain America? Characters with designs that people know and love? Why do these ugly designs no one cares about? I understand doing variants, but your first waves should be the familiar designs to attract buyers. I have no interest in these designs, I do not like these designs, and I am not willing to spend $15-18 on them.
    Can someone PM me the US number for Matty? I want to talk to someone who might has a clue of what is going on.

    I think the idea is to not start all over again with figures everyone has. I think they're doing it right...this is all "current" looks, or at least recent looks, for these characters. That's the Future Foundation Spider-Man and the Bucky Cap...which is exactly what they look like in the books. I wouldn't call that a "variant" by any means.

    But we're way off topic here. That convo should probably be int he Marvel Legends thread.

    The first two waves are always selling out everywhere and scalped for crazy prices such as masked Dark Wolverine which used to go for $200-600 on ebay. Whatever they're doing is working.

    Marvel and DC are both going with retail lines that represent what is currently found in comics. There is a decent logic that follows that it would help both figure and comic sales, or it could help them know if their costume designs really do suck.

    Well they could have at least released a NORMAL Spider-Man. I would have bought that, because I want a fully posseable normal Spider-Man in the 6inch scale. Every Spider-Man Hasbro has released over the years has sucked in articulation or has been too small.

    Well, looks like the All-Stars line is indeed cancelled based on the new Q&A.

    Doesn't seem quite cancelled, but it certainly doesn't look good. What happened to the excuse that part of the change in the line was becuase retailers wanted it this way? Beginning to look like the whole thing was DC's pushing against any classic stuff at retail, as many suspected, rather than the tired old line of "retailers want it this way."

    I'm guessing Larfleeze will wind up in one of the unannounced slots in the sub now.

    I haven't read a single issue of Spider-Man since Brand New Day. You want to do a retcon that negates every issue of Spider-Man that I've read since I was a kid? Fine, but don't expect me to ever buy another issue of Spidey. But I kept up with Thunderbolts and Dark Reign, because I love me some villains

    I really don't want to see another Iron Man, Cap, Spider-Man, Thor, Superman, Batman, Green Lantern, etc... The shelves have been just clogged with them for years. Give me a villain that hasn't been made or a supporting character in their new costume. DC and Marvel have huge universes, and I'd much rather have them branch out.

    If you're interested in 6" Spideys not made by Hasbro, I'd suggest you check out this guide. It's a pretty comprehensive retrospective. I have the Spider-Man Classics series 9 black costume Spidey, and I really like it. I hear the clamshell SMCs are nice too.


    Have I missed any updates on the Penguin in Super Powers colors we saw awhile back? I've had my fingers crossed that it will show up in the Batman Legacy line, but haven't stumbled into any announcements. I didn't know if anyone had heard any news?

    I'm the same way about Spider-Man. I love the character, and always have, but dropped it after the Brand New Day storyline, and I will not buy another new issue until Quesada is gone from Marvel, and the retcon is undone. (So I fully expect not to be buying for quite some time - I'm fully aware of what I'm getting into. )

    One of the Matty Q&As this month said that the SP Penguin figure should be slotted in somewhere in 2013, but that's really about it. So at least it's still coming, just not soon.

    The way one of those Q&As read (I forget which), it sounded vaguely like they were considering one more wave of DCUC, but that could just be poorly worded. I have no doubt that if Larfleeze doesn't make it to retail, he'll be in the sub.

    I suppose it should be some consolation that for however much difficulty people have had with MOTUC in the past year, the DCUC situation is far worse.

    did you mean to say you dropped it after One More Day? Because everything after that reset was really good stuff (up until 6/2010 when i stopped collecting all comics due to lack of funds).

    My explanation for One More Day and after, have decently written stories before the event, force a stupid change because the eic doesn't like something and has tolerated it for his tenure, have better writing after and say see it was better without him being married.

    Most people who dropped Spider-man/Marvel wasn't because of good writing but because of editorial decisions.

    Whatever the name of the storyline was that had the marriage written out of existence via the deal with Mephisto save Aunt May's life - at any rate, that's when I stopped. I just found the concept, and editorial decision, absurd.

    well you can not blame Mattel for NOT throwing DC under the bus and coming up with other reasons why they were changing DCUC. They were not going to tick off DC by throwing them under the bus and telling customers/fans what was the real problem. Besides, they didn't have to, I think we ALL knew what was going on.

    What's happening with DC All-Stars line?

    I REALLY don't understand what's going on with this line.

    Is Wave 1 of All-Stars the first and last Wave?

    i live in London and have on Pre-Order (from a store here in the UK)

    * Superman
    * Batman
    * Red Robin
    * Superboy Prime
    * Batman Beyond

    I've had no email to say they've been cancelled, will I receive these figures?

    Will there be more after them?

    Is Larfleeze cancelled altogether or will he be in the next Wave?

    What happened to Supergirl?

    Please someone help, it's very confusing as to what's happening.

    This is being discussed in the DC Classics Frustration thread - unfortunately, at the moment Mattel has not thoroughly clarified the situation, so we're all waiting to hear the fate of the All-Stars line.

    I'm going to merge this with the other thread.

    I didn't know Atrocitus became an orange lantern. Man, that is awful. I hope the final version is better.

    And I think that's the adjusted figure - IIRC, the original reveal had him on a buck with shorter legs. At least this version's a little taller.

    I do wish the reds matched, though.

    Atrocitus is pretty atrocious indeed!

    They skimped on his boots that were shown before, the paint colors looks disgusting, and even the head looks bad. Is he wearing braces? This is horrible. DCUC is looking deader than ever. I don't think I really want them to make characters I don't have if they are going to turn out this awful. Shameful.

    Wow what a let down from this



    And people complain about MOTUC because the paint jobs are often the only thing that really changes, they took this and made it into virtually a budget repaint

    I'm glad I collected the DC Direct GL figures instead. Poor Atrocitus.
