I miss DCUC

DCUC is still around so i dont really understand the post. We still have 6" figures designed by the 4 horsemen so what's the issue? I dont see mattel canceling their 6" lines anytime soon. I'm happy they did away with the baf model and are still releasing a mix of charachters. The only thing i hate are the prices, but the china sellers help offset it. I buy 1-2 figures per wave and i'm set. I only buy classic designs or from story lines i like ie DKR or kingdom come. I dont understand the lament, they might be hard to find in stores but are pretty available on ebay and saves a ton in gas$.

Well said mako!!

 

The excitement is definitely missing. You're right, back in the day come Toy Fair sites would be so friggin slow because we were all excited about the new stuff!! I'd pick up Toy Fare to get closer shots as the waves came out!!

 

I think our generation will be the last to really support toy lines.

Me too. I never found them in europe like always but it was so awesome to get such great characters wave after wave. When everything was open i embraced the deputy lanterns and had high hopes for more well known characters and suddenly it was over. Nothing showed that this line was about to die and yet. Really miss it. But hey now we get hundreds of batman variants yeahhhhh :-(

A few Walmarts in my area still have the Powergirl wave in abudence.

The last vestiges of DCUC in my area are a Jemm figure at my local Hastings and a single Dove figure at a Wal-Mart in Bryant.

Its nice that they made odd selections like Jemm but its hard to believe he was made before a figure like say Blackhawk was made.

How much is that Jemm going for?? I never picked him up!!

I think he would eventually have been made had the line continued!! I think they did a great job with a mixture of well known, villains,second tier, and group members!!

 

The only wave I didn't like was the lantern and repaint wave!! I would have loved to see another great mix wave!!

 

I still wonder what the real reason for the change??

 

******************************************************************** EDIT:

 

Never mind mako, I just ordered him from Amazon!! Along with Starman, and Kobra!! Good deals and no shipping!! I just hope I get the classic Starman and not the modern!!

I'm going to have to keep my eye out for stuff!! Still need the Orion and Lightray 2 pack! Doubt I'll find it, but you never know!!

 

Left a few for next time. Atom and Magog!! Will add them to an order where I'll need to add something to get free shipping!!

 

Hoping ill find, Mr. Terrific, John Stewart, Sandman, and Magog at good prices.

Some characters that have been on my list since the line started still haven't been made:

Aztek

Kyle Rayner

Anyone from WildCATs, especially Majestic or Grifter

Conner Hawke

 

Some that have been made:

Animal Man

Wally West

Constantine

Swamp Thing

 

I own none of those, however, because I refuse I pay 30 dollars for a basic DC figure (and swamp thing is waaaay too big)

 

How Mattel can't manage to maintain a line based upon DC comics characters is confusing and frustrating.

I have also miss this line as well I really don't come on this topic anymore send they leaved. But I do want to get Fire when ever they bring her out. I saw photos of her during Toy Faire but haven't hear anything on her releast yet. But the other then I am some what glad that it has stop. I ran out of room for them. I just found Rev. Flash about 2 months ago at a K-Mart in my area. I still see some of the old Superfriends wave like Toyman and El Droado [ms].

Oh I forgot they did make a Captain Atom figure I really appreciated, but that was like 4 years ago...

They also made a Kyle Rayner figure. It's one of my favorites actually.

Geoff johns era costume does not count. Kyle's original costume is what I meant. I don't buy anything that reminds me of that hack.

DC Direct has a great version of Kyle in his original costume. It's one of my favorite GL figures. Just get that one.

Got home and found my box at my apt door!!

 

Opened the box pretty quick cause I wanted to see if I had gotten the classic or modern Starman!! Much to my relief, classic!!!

 

After so long, new DCUC figures!!! **sniff sniff** Think I'll slowly open them!! Don't want to waste this feeling of opening new DCUC!! LOL

 

Anyhow, first time I ever saw Lord Naga, really striking looking figure!! I really like it!! Starman is a nice addition to my collection, as is Jemm!!

 

Now gonna be on the lookout for some missing key figures I never got, Mr. Terrific, Sandman, etc!!

I too want a Lord Naga. Heck I want to finish and build STRIPE. Just don't necessarily need that version of Hawkman or Atom.

Yeah the shelves in the stores are not the same.

The thrill of the hunt is gone... except for ML (when they can be found).

All I can hope for now is a Movie Masters armored version of Zod

Well every so often I "hit a lick" as my friend would say!! Today I say I did!! I went into the Big Lots in Austin looking for the MOTU Orko with Prince Adam, sadly he wasn't there!!

 

But, I did find some DCUC!! 3 Red Arrows, a Sinestro, and a White Flash!! Best part they were all $5 a pop!!! I of course grabbed all of them except the White Flash!! I may go back and get him just for the Nekron part??

 

So head on down to your Big Lots, ya never know!!
