DCU Allstars Changes

Recommended Posts

Maybe removing Flash is a good thing. They need to go back to the original design anyway, the updated Flash is horrible and goofy.

 

I am not a fan of the new DCU but I am digging these designs and outfits. I am really anticipating these figs. Even the Alfred E Newman Supes doesn't rattle me too much, but I do admit I hope we get a more definative version for the DCUC line. The standard one we have doesn't look enough like Supes to me.

 

With or without Flash, that is a huge beginning line-up. Superman, Superboy, Batman and Robin.

Looks like a change for the better. I don't know anyone who wanted that Flashpoint Plastic Man, and everyone should already have Batman Beyond.

I wanna be mad about Flash, but honestly, the yellow stripe deco kinda ruined it for me, so whatever. Batman is sporting two kung-fu grip hands so that's a big plus. Superman is okay, but just.

 

Might get the two 52s.

I still don't know if I want to go with Mattel's overly muscular Red Robin or pay about $50 for DC Direct's version wich is one step away from being a statue...

A double jointed Bats is like the Holy Grail. They make it and you never have to buy another Bats ever again, and that's bad for business.

Yeah tell me about it. But if it was just a new 52 Bats I would still buy a Batman Inc or any other double jointed Bats.

I am glad for the change. Flashpoint Plastic Man? Hopefully, they push that POS into a future wave or TRU 2-pack and not sneak him into the subscription. I can see Larfleeze being offered in the sub.

Wave 1... read carefully this is the ONLY wave. Its being reported ALL Stars are cancelled and this is the only assortment. This is the next to last nail in DCUC coffin imo!

That is NOT confirmed. All we know for sure is Wave 1 has been changed. And I for one am not surprised. In all the years I've been collecting, the original Wave 1 was the weakest Wave I have EVER seen. Even worse, this was their opening act!

 

I'm sure All-Stars hasn't been cancelled.

 

Then again, if it has, would anybody be surprised?

 

Either way... Welcome to Mattyville.

Maybe, just maybe, hear me out here, I know this is a crazy idea, but perhaps Matty listened for once and realized that we do not want to buy a bunch of repainted DCSH figures (Steel, Batgirl, Supergirl), a figure that no one would ask for (FP Plastic Man), a rerelease of a DCUC figure that may or may not have accessories (Batman Beyond). If we do see a wave 2, I bet we do see the Flash and Hawkman figures that were previously announced, as well as Larfleeze ( if they don't move him to the sub).

Do you think the people from Mattel just sit around the office saying how can we put the screws to the DC fans today??@smilepunch@

I think Mattel is probably ticked at WB/DC.

 

They were like "Marvel put out THREE awesome comic movies last year, and you morons pooped out one of the top five crappiest movies of ALL TIME. Our faith in your product is...diminished to say the least. We kinda wish we'd gone after the Marvel License in hindsight.

Oh, and the retailers didn't order anything after NYToyFair"

Well considering BBTS and other etailers are saying all future waves and figs are cancelled and comic stores getting same info from diamond I think its pretty close to being confirmed. @loll@

Lol, I just spent about twenty minutes trying to think of some well worded commentary on what I think about all of this, but I can't. Mattel's decisions seem very bizarre and confusing to me. Saying that without any ill will or sarcasm or anything else.

i wanted these four anyway so i ordered them again. i can understand retailers to. batman beyond again? supergirl again? hawkman again? who is plastic man? another lantern? it doesnt really suprises me. well nothing really suprises me with mattel lately. i doubt that flash and larfleeze are cancelled. they will show up anyway. in the sub or in 2-packs.

I know I'm in the minority but I would have bought the Plastic Man just because I like characters from the Golden-Age....even if its a "Modern" version of him.

I'm in the minority, too, but because I liked that Flash. I like his updated look a lot. I think it's the best of the new 52 (Superman looks awful without the trunks, and Batman looks a little less cool than he used to).

 

I think this Superboy is awful and ridiculous looking. I would have taken him out for The Flash, but if they plan on future waves, they can't put all the big guns in the first wave.

 

As for the status of the line, who knows what Mattel is thinking. The original Wave 1 was just awful, so it's good they reworked it. And we don't need anymore repaint or non-repainted DCSH, especially not Supergirl, which is the worst DCUC or DCSH figure ever made. But if they're not planning more waves, that's a bummer for New 52 fans and regular DC fans alike.
