Really I can't help but feel that missing characters has a lot to do with who they've already made. I mean if you make characters like Killer Moth and Kamandi but can't complete some of the teams or individual characters that are more well known and have left an impact that far surpasses the above mentioned characters.

Hook-hand Aquaman
Crab Mask Kyle Rayner
Wally West Flash

These 3 are probably the most standalone figs missing but were a huge part of Morrison's JLA. Villains like Prometheus, Key, The General and Queen Bee would be welcome additions as well.

Elongated Man & Perez Zatanna are the only ones missing for satellite era JLA. It would be nice if they could give us a few villains to join them and I think they tried by putting Shaggy Man in the polls.


Titans:
Jericho
Nightwing (disco costume)
Speedy & Arsenal
Aqualad & Tempest
Ravager
Wonder Girl (Cassie)
Troia
Starfire (new sculpt)
Changeling
Terra
Captain Marvel Jr.
Miss Martian
Superboy (T-shirt)
Kid Flash & Impulse (Bart)

it would be nice if they gave us a couple more Titans villains and while i would love to see Fearsome Five or the Brotherhood of Evil (which would double as Doom Patrol villains). At least the inclusion of Brother Blood, Wildebeest and Blackfire would be nice. Titans are the biggest group with holes as far as I'm concerned.

I'm just going to lump other characters in a list for the rest...

Vixen
Huntress
Oracle
Jay Garrick Flash
Fire
Ice
Rocket Red
Geo Force
Damage
The Ray
The rest of the Metal men
The rest of the Doom Patrol
Mera (with Red Lantern variant)
Monel
Phantom Girl
Bouncing Boy
Sun Boy
Duo Damsel or Triplicate Girl
Saint Walker
Indigo 1

Mirror Master
Weather Wizard
Trickster
Heat Wave
The Shade
Parallax
Larfleeze
Atrocitus
Killer Frost
Poison Ivy
R'as Al Ghul
Brainiac 13
Business Suit Lex Luthor
Maxima
Ocean Master
Circe
Dr. Light
Sonar
Granny Goodness
Royal Flush Gang
Emerald Empress
Persuader
Tharok
Mano (I mean c'mon we got Validus but not the rest of the 5?)

I'm sure I've forgotten a few heroes and villains and I'm sure that some would argue that these aren't all necessary but they should have had a figure before many of the ones we got in my humble opinion.

Hey, AnimateTed, I think you left Mera off your list.

As a would-be collector from the UK, I would say that the whole line is missing. :(

But I think that Ra's al Ghul is a conspicuous by his absence. I would love a four pack with Ra's, Talia, Ubu and a Neal Adams style Batman. Released especially for the UK market. :wink:

Sadly, Mattel don't distribute DCUC to the UK :(

There's a lot missing though, certainly more than I originally thought about when I started this.

Some of these I would say were sadly just pipe dreams, but with any luck some of these will make it into the sub or the new line.

Fingers crossed guys and gal.
