For those of you that can't or haven't followed the link...

Its not that Matty doesn't want to do it, its that DC/WB isn't allowing it. Ralph, for some reason, would now require a separate license agreement (most common guess is because he isn't part of the DCnU) and DC/WB is saying that it isn't a character that they are looking at pursuing at this point.

I didn't take it that way at all. The "license" part wasn't about DC licensing Elongated Man, but about Mattel licensing DC.

Mattel's hands are tied because they're paying DC to use their characters (at DC's discretion), and DC isn't letting them use Elongated Man, so there's not much they can do. The fact that they've done a "reboot" shouldn't have any bearing on Elongated Man's availability unless DC says they don't want him made.

This doesn't make a lot of sense to me in light of the fact that they have already approved him for figures before - 2 in the JLU line, at least one in HeroClix and one from DC Direct... their own licensing arm.

Actually, DC Direct has made 2 versions of the stretchable sleuth. One in a "JLA" line and a second in "Identity Crisis".

we really need Ralph. I'd actually like him in his satellite era costume and I'd really like him in his JLI costume.

After a response from Mattel saying it's not true, the post appears to have been removed.

Once I heard we were getting the deputy lanterns and that Black Lantern Firestorm was under consideration, I proposed the idea of Elongated Man with a Black Lantern Elongated Man variant. It was one Black Lantern JLA member that DC Direct had not done.
