Oooohh! Ultimen! That may be the closest we'd ever get to Apache Chief, Black Vulcan or the Wonder Twins action figures. I'd TOTALLY buy multiple versions of that.

 

Yeah, Tala would be great too.

 

Scott Nightleich (sp) of Mattel (toyguru) said that there might be a great announcement at NYCC this year. I guess we'll have to wait til early February to hear what he has to say. Now that JLU is a Target exclusive, Mattel will be willing to make announcements about that line at NYCC. DCUC and Infinite Heroes announcements will probably have to wait until ToyFair, though.

I can't help but think of Glassman's fantastic custom when I see this figure. (I think Casimir also did one). The custom is better than the production piece (which seems to have NO articulation!)

 

do you have a link to this custom? i'd like to see it. thanks!!!

she don't look prominent, but watch the JLU series, probably one of the best animated series ever made, she plays an important part in the series. she knows batman's "secret." no, not his identity, something else.

 

 

didnt she create the "secret"?

Why is this figure important?

 

Well, number one, she is an important character in the JLU cartoon universe, as well as in the DC Universe in general. She was created by John Ostrander for the book Suicide Squad. She is a master manipulator and user and knows how to get the most out of the characters (both heroes and villains) she interacts with.

 

Number 2...she's a female figure, with an entirely new mold.

 

Number 3...she's an ethnic character. There are very few ethnic action figures made in toy lines.

 

Number 4...it's the first time this character has been made into an action figure.

 

Number 5...some would call her a "supporting" character because she's not in a costume. Most super-hero lines make the good guys and the bad guys, but NO supporting characters. Notice there was no Lois Lane in the Superman Returns line? No Vicky Vale in the Batman movie line? In the past, there have been some supporting characters made in the DC Animated/Bruce Timm style...Commisioner Gordon, Lois Lane and Alfred Pennyworth, most notably. But Amanda for the JLU is a major step for Mattel to make (IMHO).

 

Any other reasons that anyone else would like to add?
