wow, is Mattel just giving up on everything now? Quite a lame crop of SDCC exclusives this year. Oh well, you know what I always say: "#$## SDCC, #$## exclusives"

And if they gave us another Batman, Superman, or Wonder Woman people would have complained about that.

DC is pushing New 52 stuff now, that's just the way it is.

The issue is this is not a figure anyone really asked for. Many had their hopes on a new figure(with a tooling budget) such as Granny Goodness to be brought out.

This isn't my first choice but I still like any kinda version I can get of a Golden-Age character.

Not that I'd ever have any interest in a new 52 Shazam, but that hood looks terrible.

It's not the New 52 stuff that bugs me, its the crappy New 52 stuff.

I dunno, I like Shazam as an exclusive. He's an iconic character, but not one in high demand. What if the exclusive were a character everyone was excited about? Then we'd all be complaining we can't get the exclusive because it sold out so fast. @smilepunch@

Yes 100% agree! I'm very happy with all the Mattel exclusives this year, precisely b/c they are NOT fan demanded figures. Both MOTU and DC figures are nice to have for completists but definately not essential parts of the collection.

Congrats Mattel!!!

Exactly. Because if they arent gonna pull out the stops for the con, we know they're definitely not gonna do it for us any other time.

All Mattel bashing aside, we all saw this coming. Maybe 3 waves a year now, 2-4 figures a wave, Mattel has done some serious downsizing on the DCUC/DCU front. We are now paying for the embarrassment of riches we got over the last 10 years or so. 6 figure waves, all exclusively sculpted by the Four Horsemen, character selection covering EVERYONE from Aquaman to Zatanna. We got the friggin' Super Friends for cryin' out loud.

Mattel is far from my favorite toy company, but I can't say they never gave me anything.

that's true...I love the incomplete collections I have! JLU, DCUC, Young Justice. I thought nothing would be more awesome than my incomplete Playmates Addams Family figures (no Wednesday) until it was clear that I could start collecting a Ghostbusters line that would not include Gozer!

I gotta agree whole heartedly with that one. Mattel and Toybiz/Hasbro both gave us long running, diverse, fan-pleasing lines of 6" figures. And what do you hear about the most? Stuff we "never got". Boo hoo.

I agree with you for the most part, except when it comes to ghostbusters, I mean no Gozer, seriously! That's almost like a Batman line without Joker.

You're kinda missing our point. That incomplete Ghostbusters line you guys mentioned? Ghostbusters 2 came out nearly a quarter of a century ago, the original 5 years before that. The fact that we got a collector line at all should be enough.

Believe me, I was there. We didn't even get decent figures when the movies were new!

that doesn't make any sense...one of those companies is STILL working to deliver the goods (even trying to finish what another started), whereas the other, well:

I hate Hit Monkey. 10 years ago that "action figure" would have been a pack-in with another 6"er. Today he's considered a BAF. PLEASE!!!!

Yep specially that now we got iron man legends with new sculpts and iron monger baf. These companies make no sense. May it be mattel or hasbro, lol. Still with hasbro we at least get some weapons for the characters. It wouldnt hurt mattel to include some kryptonite once in a while. I mean they did a lot over the past years and could include them again. Or some batarangs for that matter.

so it's not so much "complaining about complaining about have's/have-nots", but more "it's not like it used to be" or "Hasbro/Toy Biz vs. Mattel" or just another layer of the "DC vs Marvel" debate with you guys? Whichever, these comments don't work well with the "I love comics, I love toys, just be happy we get anything so #$## the whiners" attitude cultivated above.

Not really that big a sticking point for me. I can always raid some of those older figures for accessories. As of now, my DCU 52 Superman includes a chunk of "meteor rock" from a Smallville Clark Kent. 52 Batman has a pretty sizable arsenal (grapple, cuffs, and several assorted batarangs) thanks to a couple of DCSH Batman figures, and 52 Batgirl now packs the gear from a DCUC Crimefighter Batman.

I'm actually looking forward to this!

Lord knows DC has crapped enough all over Shazam fans for years now.

The hood looks like it could fit better, but I don't think it's a bad looking figure. I've always liked Captain Marvel.
