Looking at the checklist/release thread and based on the Power Point presentation shown by Mattel at SDCC, I figure there are probably 18 more unrevealed new characters coming for JLU even if the line gets canned after 4 waves at retail.

I've based this on the following :

* after the Grodd re-release, each 6-pack has contained 5 new characters

* only one 6-pack for wave 3 was shown (5 new characters unrevealed)

* no 6-packs for wave 4 were shown (10 total new characters unrevealed)

* no 3-packs for wave 4 were shown (conservatively say 1 new character for one and 2 for the other)

* all the unrevealed characters are JLU-show-centric

This conjecture also doesn't take into account that the Legion 4-pack on MC.com could be a "Far From Home" theme with a new Supergirl, Brainiac, Bouncing Boy, and someone like Emerald Empress. I'm assuming the Legion 4-pack is going to be some unreleased figures from the canceled show line.

We could be blown away AGAIN when this info is revealed on MC.com, whenever that would be.

If they took our top 18 from the last round of polls, that would be these guys :

Mr. Terrific
S.T.R.I.P.E.
Toyman
Killer Frost
Kalibak
Captain Cold
Supergirl (red & blue costume, new sculpt)
Granny Goodness
Hourman
Mongul
Amanda Waller
Gypsy
Vandal Savage
Dr. Mid-Nite
Captain Boomerang
Crimson Avenger
Circe
Clayface (Inserted by me because we didn't even have 18 total in the main 'top 10' vote!)

The line would be completely finished. Amazing!

Thoughts?

Peace,

Chip

Please dont say "Completly finished" Mr. Chip...lets just let it keep going and going and going and going and going.....


Ya get the point. SO ya'll get out there and buy doubles...no triples of EVERYTHING!!!

I still want BlackHawk, Travis Morgan and the Western Heroes to make it in.

Interesting. Hadn't even thought of it this way. Interesting that the number of remaining unannounced characters for Waves 3 & 4 lines up almost exactly with our Most Wanted lists...

I am NEVER quiting this line. I did think it was finished not long ago, but damn, what a shot in the arm. The hunt is on again......I was just 2 days from retiring. :D

It's encouraging, based on the pattern of announcements so far, to think that in all likelihood there's still a number of to-be-released figures coming our way.

I definitely think the characters that require lesser tooling (Mr. Terrific, Hourman, Dr. Midnite, Killer Frost, Captain Cold, etc.) are a given...hopefully figures that will require new sculpts (Toyman, Kalibak, Waller, etc.) are also forthcoming as well.

Either way, it's extremely encouraging to see there's a lot more ahead!

Unfortunately it seems like the end of that want list contains load of figures that need almost all-new sculpts which seems unlikely at this point in the line. I guess we can put a lot of hope into the MattyCollector site to get those.

You are right, some of these are oversized/undersized.

I think all of the following would be easy enough to make with the existing sculpts and new heads.

Mr. Terrific
Killer Frost
Captain Cold
Supergirl (red & blue costume on Adult female body)
Hourman
Gypsy
Vandal Savage
Dr. Mid-Nite
Captain Boomerang
Crimson Avenger
Circe

I really wish we could get big, newly sculpted characters like Kalibak, Clayface, Dragga, etc.
