Thanks for the update TG, I am a little sad to hear that Sinestro Corps figure will be a chase and not a 50/50 figure. Guess it will be ebay for me.

Thanks so much for taking a few moments to give us an update. Love what we've seen so far. Can't wait for Toy Fare and Toy Fair to see what is coming next.

Thanks soooooo much for the heads-up on this. The JLU line is continuing, and the character expansion will be (at least partially, if not totally) revealed in ToyFare magazine. Thanks again for the big hint, and for posting it here. It's a relief.

Peace,

Chip


Wholeheartedly agreed! Thanks for all of the DC Classics and JLU info, ToyGuru :D

Modern Aquaman is the chase.

Good stuff! Especially the Firestorm news. It did seem kind of a waste to me to sculpt that awesome Ronnie head and have it be merely a chase.

OK ToyGuru

You asked us to continue giving you feedback on the line and to give you some insight into what we mightg like to see to get us to keep buying.

I'll say it just this one last time (probably not but I say it now)

I HATE CHASE VARIANTS!!! 50/50 split, fine, i'll deal. Running change, fine, I'll deal. Chase Variants, i'll drop the line.

Just so you know.

Glad I got that off my chest.

Thanks for the update, TG! My worst fear is this line will stop before it makes all the big names. But with the info you gave I feel a little better. :)

Awesome! I'm hoping I can score the wave online when they start shipping, and I'm only interested in the classic versions.

From there we’ll be at NY Comic Con in April and Wizard World Chicago in June to reveal the new waves of DCUC and offer some really cool redeco exclusives.


So Mattel is offering an NYCC exclusive? That's a first. I'm not really concerned if they are just repaints/redecos; I treat those as chase variants (really nice to have, but I'm not going to stress).

This sounds more like a "must-have" exclusive like SDCC 2007's Man-Bat. For DCSH, Man-Bat was a character and a sculpt that was not (and has not been) released to mass retail.

Con exclusives = bad idea.
I dropped a line due to a con exclusive (see JLU).

Imagine if the NYCC exclusive redeco is the Man-Bat brown version?

Just sayin'

Gotta hand it to you guys, the figures are AMAZING.

This is everything I dreamt of when I heard you guys scored the line.

I hope you guys can iron out some of the loose joint problems, like maybe divets in the joints.

Any word on the website and when we can purchase these bad guys (exclusives) through you guys

I have noticed most of the collectors have made there purchases with online retailers, any idea if they will get there shipment before stores again?
