It's simple. If they've been done in the comics, then I don't mind them showing up in the line.
this is a comic line, Mattel has stated the focus is the comics.
but the fact of the matter is this: I'd rather have Bat Hombre and Crazy Quilt over Zan And Jayna any day.
that's personal preference and my opinion only. But it's an opinion held by a vast majority of DC fans who don't wanna see this line get screwed over in the same fashion DC Direct has.
One-Panel appearances, IMHO don't count for squat. The HB Characters remain the property of HB, and there's little Mattel can do to gain rights to those characters, much in the same fashion that they can't do Filmation characters for MOTUC.
For better or worse, that's definitely off the table at the moment.
as for the rest, I concede that Zan and Jayna were in the comics, and if they were done in a twopack with Gleek, I wouldn't mind it as much as something in the regular line, where I HAVE to buy them if I want the BAF.
I'm not saying I don't want a Nicholson Joker, or even that I don't want YOU to have the figures you want. But there are avenues to get what you want.
Nicholson Joker should be done in the Movie Masters line. I think Reeve Superman and even Adam West should also remain in that line.
I think the Superfriends are done, though. I know that's a bitter pill to swallow, but I think we've got a better chance of seeing Wing, the Hong Kong Cavalier.
