Well, you can't please everyone. As for us long suffering Superfriends fans this is a dream long over do.
I personally want to thank Mattel for giving us the characters many have us have been waiting for since The Superfriends debut.
"Long Suffering?" No, not really. Superfriends (and particularly Super Powers) fans have gotten plenty of love in the DCUC line. I don't object to Mattel making a wave that's Superfriends-heavy, but I won't be buying much, if any of it. There are others that are going to feel the same way. Much the same as the DCUC Wave 17 "Deputy Lantern" wave...there are people turned off by the concept (though at least that wave has a critical build-a-figure attached to it). All of this could lead to some heavy pegwarming for both waves since the collector base is divided (unless both waves are exclusives of some kind). I think these "Themed" waves are a big risk by Mattel on a line that's already barely managing to stay on shelves as it stands. Target and TRU are clogged with refresh-case pegwarmers and Wal-Mart doesn't even carry the line in half (or more) of their stores now.
With the price increases, I have to fully admit that I'm going to be surprised if DCUC survives into 2012. Or at least survives as a mass-retail line. I could see them shifting to a Masters of the Universe Classics style model for DC figures pretty easily.
Well I did say you can't please everyone I'm sure you will be back when wave 19 comes out with the JSA, and we are long suffering just so you know, when it comes to characters like Apache Chief, Toyman, and El Dorado.
These will be first for all and long overdue. Superfriends are classic DC and the reason many from my gen started reading DC in the first place.
