I like this idea for a sixpack. Maybe Red Arrow. Instead of doing a Speedy figure they could do Red Arrow. Same character and easy to make. Just use the Green Arrow Body and a new head sculpt. The one thing though is the belt should say R instead of G.

If they did Blue Beetle and Guy Gardner I'd be in heaven..

They could do another Gotham set.
Nightwing
Robin
Batman
Commisioner Gordon
Two-Face
Firefly

I like the idea for the JSA sets guys but like i mentioned it would probably be 5 new figures. I hope i'm wrong and its 6.

I think if they ever do Robin and Nightwing that they'll be singles so I'd replace those two with Batgirl and BTAS Riddler.

They could throw Martian Manhunter into the JSA pack to make it five.

And I'd rather see Speedy before I see Red Arrow.

Just thought of some awesome 3-packs

Teen Titans

Starfire
Beast Boy
Raven

Sidekicks 1

Batman
Robin (could be Tim Drake and have Dick Grayson as a single)
Batgirl

Sidekicks 2

Aquaman (short hair/no beard/orange & green)
Aqualad
Tempest

Sidekicks 3

Superman (Classic look to give us a new version)
Adult Supergirl
Superboy

Awesomeness pack

Firestorm
Blue Beetle
Guy Gardener

There you go Mattel. I just gave you two waves worth of 3-packs that would sell faster than any you ever released.

Well, let's see how they've been doing them so far...

wave 1: Superman Prime, Batman, Kilowog, Stargirl, Hawkman -- 2 re-paints and 3 re-issues

wave 2: Batman, Superman, Wonder Woman, Bizarro, Sinestro -- 4 re-paints and 1 re-issue

wave 3: Booster Gold, Dr. Fate, Green Lantern, Parasite, Superwoman -- 3 re-paints, 1 re-issue and 1 "new" character

wave 4: Ultraman, Red Tornado, Zatanna, Batman, Volcana -- 3 re-paints, 1 re-issue and 1 "new" character

wave 5: Aquaman, Deadshot, Batman, Superman Red/Blue, OMAC -- 3/4 re-paints, 1 re-issue and 1 new character

Doesn't seem that out-of-line with what they've been (and will be) doing for the singles.

Well I have to say I didn't even realize that trend. For me though, I love Batman and Superman so repaints don't bother me. I did not previously own Bizarro, Sinestro, Killowog, Stargirl, Hawkman, Booster Gold, Dr. Fate, Parasite, Red Tornado, Volcana, or Deadshot so all of those were/will be new to me. I guess I'm just not excited about the repaints that surfaced on eBay. Also, I sometimes forget that many of these characters were released before I got into collecting this line.

I have to suspect that we're not going to get too much "new"-ness out of the singles. The six-packs, when findable, represent the best deal for new character ratios, and the three-packs are variable:

For the three-packs:
Wave 1: 2 new characters, 4 reissues
Wave 2: 1 new character, 5 reissues
Wave 3: 4 new characters, 1 new variant, 1 reissue
Wave 4: 3 new characters, 3 reissues
Wave 5: 5 new characters, 1 repainted reissue

So we can safely assume the next wave of three-packs will include at least three new characters, probably four.

So assuming there are five new characters in each of the unannounced six-packs, that means between the three- and six- packs, that's 19 new characters. Throw in Owlman as a single and that gives us 20.

Not too shabby, to tell the truth. (At this point, given the dire warnings we've heard about the Gotham Villains Matty 4-pack, I'm just going to hope the Marvel Family set gets released and not expect to see any more online sets beyond that. Maybe I'll be pleasantly surprised, though.)

So at any rate, I come up with a probable 20 new characters to be shown at SDCC.

Well, Johnny Quick and Power Ring haven't exactly been confirmed, we have been told that the CSA would be completed (provided, of course, that the line continues to sell). We've also been told that not all of the 6-packs would have five new characters. I suspect that we'll be seeing some larger characters in a pack or two and that will probably bump the number of new characters down to three or less in those. I'm really hoping for a large "hero" in at least one of the packs, we've gotten more than enough over-sized villains...

I agree in that regard. If they do a New Gods set with Kalibak, Desaad, Steppenwolf and 3 reissues like Lightray, Big Barda, and Orion or Forager maybe i wouldn't mind it.

Or STRIPE, Hourman, Dr. Midnite and maybe Mr. Terrific and two existing characters I'd be good with that.

This time around their repaints make sense. Batman in the movie look, classic Super Powers look. Superman repainted as Ultraman, in a red and blue look which was from an older comic right? Superman Prime. I'll continue to buy those. Aquaman and John Stewart in classic looks.

The only thing about that is they've already done characters like Atom Smasher, Gold Amazo, Killowog, ect. that SHOULD have been bigger heroes so what's left besides STRIPE?

At "normal" size, Atom Smasher, Amazo and Kilowog should be about the size (maybe just a bit larger) of Rocket Red so I still wouldn't consider any of them "over-sized" since RR could fit in a single pack. STRIPES is the main one I'm thinking about, but we could also get a powered-up Atom Smasher or even Longshadow, but STRIPES would be the first on my list.

Yea, I'd love to see a larger Atom Smasher. Maybe the same size as Giganta was. Someone here did an awesome custom 10 in. Atom Smasher but I haven't been able to track it down without going through every post I've ever made.

I think you're right. The picture I saw was a group shot of JLU characters but that looks like the figure. I would LOVE to have that in my collection.

STRIPE is the main hero, although depending on who you ask there's also Lobo. (haha).

As far as villains, there are a bunch of them that could be done.

Agree though that probably two of the three unannounced 6 packs won't have 5 new characters in them. I'll be glad to get one that has that many. And I don't mind getting mostly repaints if it gets us an oversized figure like STRIPE, Kalibak, or The General. If it's just Darkseid repainted at Mongul, I'll be happy to get him but NOT in a 6 pack with 5 other repaints or reissues.
