    I think that Karg should be released and very well SHOULD be released. I mean, what's the worse that could happen? Mattel should just throw caution to the wind and release this character that fans had wanted for almost 30 years. I really do not think the owners of the Karg likeness will sue.

    The owners are Warner Brothers, with whom Mattel has a good deal of major business, especially with the DC license. There may be no lawsuits, but there is no way Mattel is going to risk souring the relationship in any way by releasing a figure they may not have the full legal rights to do in a very small action figure line that barely registers on their balance sheet. Heck DC/Warner got majorly ticked off when Mattel distributed a handful of JLU Hal Jordan figures just to a chosen few people associated with the line as a Christmas surprise. Mattel is not going to try this unless the rights are definitely in order; as a business, it would be outright irresponsible and foolhardy otherwise.
