Superfly

Great list my fantasy football brother!

but .... I do not see the modern Hawkman (Carter Hall)


If SDComics got the strait scoop we should be seeing the modern Hourman & Dr. MId-Nite soon!

Stargirl should be fairly easy to make from the blue shirt Supergirl & Starman's cosmic staff.

I want Sand - but i am not getting a good vibe that we will see him any time soon!

your friendly neighborhood mooseman!

Johnny Quick, Citizen Steel, Phantom Lady, & Jade are all on my wish list!

Golden Age Flash has got to be a no-brainer for Matty!

your friendly Earth-2 lovin' Mooseman!!!

good points, all. I suppose we could consider some "locks" and remove them from the list, like Jay Garrick and the sculpted Hourman and Mid-nite. I was thinking the same for Hawkman when I left him off, but maybe I need to look at it again...

Wow. This will be really hard for me to vote on as those are my four favorite teams ever. I prefer the modern design of most of them, but still. This will be some hard choices for me.

I dunno Fly. Can any of them really be considered "locks"? We don't want to give the impression we don't want them. Just because they have been said to be coming, until you see pictures I'm hesitant for you not to include them. I know they're different lines, but take JLU. Firefly & Dr Destiny showed up on ebay. Signalman & Cyborg Superman were on the leaked list. And ToyGuru himself said they would do the CSA version of Owlman. Yet none of them have been what I call confirmed - pictures of the figure with a wave assigned from ToyGuru or Matty.

I'm not saying DON'T exclude them, just use caution if you do.

Wow! I thought the JLA had a big roster. I would take about 75% of that list, okay more like 90%. I can't wait!

Thinking about Phantom Lady some more (mind outta the gutters fellas), I gotta wonder how Mattel would handle it.

Its pretty much unanimously believed that the Starfire figure made by Matty is a horrible representation mainly due to the "uni-boob".

Phantom Lady's costume is slightly ...less... than Starfire's.

While we might think, "wow, what a great character to get re-use out of that Power Girl buck", I'm a bit afeared of what the actual result might be.

You do have a point there bnjmnrlyr but I didn't completely hate the DCUC Starfire. I'd still like to see what they would do with PL, they might surprise us. She and Uncle Sam would make a fantastic Matty 2-pack or something.

I learned a long time ago that I'm not a true expert of the DCU (not to the extent of the Marvel U anyway). Almost all of my knowledge/character attachment comes post Crisis (the first one from the mid-80's), with the exception of Aquaman and the New Teen Titans.

So, unfortunately, no pre-Crisis characters for me!

Right off the bat, I'd have to go with Jay or Jade. Maybe the Human Bomb. He always looked kinda cool to me. Phantom Lady . . . well . . . borders a bit too close some of those naughty Japanese toys you sometimes see. :oops:
