All the new DCUC figures look great. Flash, Kid Flash, Captain Cold, Shazam, Killer Moth, and all the rest look great too! Now if Mattel could fix up the distribution issues then this line will be truly fantastic.

Everything they showed was gold... I can't wait.

Captain Marvel will be mine!!!


I really wish they'd shown the Kalibak C&C... I love that Mattel is doing so much in the way of 4th World figures. We might be needing a bigger Darkseid soon though.


This is my first post on the forums, by the way

Anyone else think they should have done a different upper body for Starfire? They probably didn't want her to look to provocative, but that's her costume. Her breasts look weird when the current female mold is used.

With years of poor distribution behind them--from MOTU to DCUC wave 2--history shows that won't happen.

But I agree with your other points. PLUS now I see STARFIRE (yes!) and 90's Supes (which I was going to do a custom of, but now don't have to). Some nice stuff!

I agree. Her breasts look a little awkward. but they I am sure Hasbro didn't want her to look too sexy. I still fell her breasts need more shape in the middle area. I don't like that they just painted her boots on instead of sculpting them like her gauntlets.

Hope they fix it in giving her cleavage. However, I really doubt they will give her sculpted straps mainly since they would probably just have it painted so that they can reuse the body for another character with a skin tight or skimpy outfit like for instance an animated catwoman

that is if they fix the mold in givin her some round boobies.

Am I the only one who's disappointed the famed Four Horsemen aren't using their talents to their fullest potential by reusing molds? Hal Jordan and Aquaman should not be as bulky as Superman. Voluptuous or busty women should not have the same molds as some of the slimmer ones. Wonder Woman better not have Harley Quinn's mold.

does anyone know how the C&C fig is going to work? i mean specifically with atom smasher..with more figs in each wave this could be confusing? i mean how many parts could they logically divide a C&C figure into....

This is a guess:

Head
Upper torso
Lower torso
Left Arm
Right Arm
Left Leg
Right Leg

That's 7 pieces, and I believe that's what they said they'd expand them to.

I was at the Mattel/DC Panel and here's how the 7 figure waves will work.
6 of the figures will feature C&C pieces. The 7th will have a base. The 7th figure will be the A-lister of the set (For example, Superman, Flash or Green Lantern). That way, if a parent wants to buy their kid a big-name, recognizable character, they don't have to buy a bunch of b- or c-listers to "complete" another character.
another thing they announced was that the KB exclusives of Cyborg (with Sonic hand) and Unmasked Terry McGuiness Batman Beyond...should be coming out in October when Wave 4 hits.
As for Wave 2 and the problems with shipping...They are very aware of the problem. They changed
distributors in China in the middle of the wave, so only a few made it out before they changed. The second shipment of this set, including the Jason Rusch Firestorm WILL be shipped sometime after wave 3 (Green Lantern, Robin, etc).

Dear Mattel:

THANK YOU. THANK YOU. THANK YOU.


Thank you for doing everything Hasbro has decided not to do. Your figures are amazing. Your selections are OUTSTANDING. You are going to be getting all the money I would have been spending on Marvel Legends and will NOT be spending on the Marvel Puniverse figures.

BRAVO MATTEL! BRAVO! BRAVO! BRAVO!

Another announcement from the Mattel panel was that there would be an exclusive All-Star wave that will be at Wal-Mart. The All-star wave will be the big guns or A-list characters only and will be available all-year round. I'm assuming that this is Mattel's way to make sure people (parents) can always find Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Green Lantern etc. the big guns and the best known characters.

They announced that there are to be 5 main waves in 2009 and the exclusive Wal-Mart wave. There will also be TRU 2-packs, KB 2-packs and Mattycollector exclusives! Whew! For those of you who are still upset that your favorites haven't been announced yet (Green Arrow), hold on! We've only been told ONE of the 5 main waves of 2009 so far. GA may show up yet. And the winner of the fan vote will show up in late 2009...so vote, folks! Scott Nightlick (Mattel's Toy Guru) said that the other characters may eventually show up, but whoever wins will be made earlier. I personally want Catman (because there's never been a Catman and Gail Simone has made him a HOT character!!!), but I'd like to see any of them, really.

I fixed it for you. ;)

Man, what are they thinking giving a sure-to-see-huge-demand exclusive to a retailer that practically doesn't exist anymore? They'd damn well better sell that thing online (and keep it in stock)...
