You know ever since the reveals at SDCC, there have been a number of ideas, whether new 3-packs, what Matty has to do to finish the show, etc.

After the megapack idea. I started thinking about what Matty could do.

I mean with the two pack ideas for the most part they have been two fairly oversized figures packed with one another for 25.00. I think this is a great idea and I hope its successful.

But after Darkseid/Kalibak and the Two Parademons, you think they could do a 10 inch Atom Smasher with a regular sized Atom Smasher or to add to the Legion of Superheroes, Colossal Boy and a regular sized figure of the same character like they did with Giganta? Just wondering. I know those would be the only two they could really do but does anyone have any other ideas? Just got to thinking that's all.

The four Legion characters I have are enough. I wouldn't buy any more of them. I have enough 10" figures, too, unless they decide to release an Atom Smasher in that size. He's the only one I would buy.

In my opinion, Mattel has established larger figures in an 8" scale with Giganta. So if they were to produce Atom Smasher, I would like him to be proportionately (as much as they do in JLU) be in the 8" scale and not 10"

It depends on the parameters. Are we talking about just "In-the-show" characters, or the DCU proper? If it's the latter, then I have some suggestions.

Nitewing73, I doubt we will be getting anymore 10 inch figures but I would love to get Atom Smasher and Colossal Boy. Similarly, I think you could add the Ultamen's LongShadow (and Apache Chief), and while not in the same 2-pack idea that you proposed, it would be neat to get the Annihilator armor (with or without Felix Faust head), and the gigantic nuclear robot from Chong-Mai that appeared in the "Initiation" episode of JLU (JLU's 1st episode). I thought I remember reading somewhere in one of the Ask Matty's that the Giganta was a one time gift and that they didn't intend to revisit the 10-inchers (I believe someone asked if having Giganta at SDCC implied that they would do an Atom-Smasher. I could be wrong (and Mattel does change it's mind - seeing as Gorilla Grodd was supposed to be the last JLU figure). Here's hoping I'm wrong!

i'd buy an Atom smasher for sure and an Apache Chief. But personally i'd rather have a Brimstone. That for me would be the coolest, baddest JLU figure of all time. Perhaps a SDCC exclusive for next year. They could throw in wonder woman, hawk and dove but i'd take it anyway they choose to give it to me.

Zim, I wasn't sure since they never named him and he would be a redesign of the character (although there are several examples of character redesigns in Justice League and JLU - Amazo is a great example). Is it widely considered that the robot from Chong-Mai is Brimstone?

Atom Smasher, Long Shadow, Collosal Boy, Chemo, Brimstone, and Luthor's Robot from "Legends" are the only ones I want in 10 inch scale (or 8 inch scale).

Atom Smasher, Long Shadow and Brimstone are the three that instantly come to mind.

Atom Smasher is the only one I really want. Chemo, Brimstone, Longshadow, Apache Chief (only because we have him already) and Anti Monitor would all be cool but not necessary.

I think that Brimstone would be an excellent choice!

Two things:

1- Don't forget Micron (Batboy Beyond) and Mordru (Greatest Story Never Told). Micron could come with "regular size" Micron; and Mordru with Composite Batman/Superman. Those could be worth $25 dollars... I think. Maybe?

2- Giganta measures 8 3/4 inches (regardless of what the box says). She is taller than C&C Brimstone; and so close to a 9 inch figure, that a 10 inch Atom Smasher wouldn't look out of place next to her.

Thought you guys should know.
