Matty Batman reports on the Matty forums that the repainted DCUC Penguin that was on display at NYCC is going to be in a three-pack that the DCU team is developing.

Who do you think the other two will be? I'm thinking the Batman from the Azrael two-pack (minus battle damage) and probably a re-release of the DCUC16 Robin. I'd love to be surprised and have it end up being someone totally new - '90s Catwoman, Earth-2 Robin, etc. - but I can't see that happening. Even a repaint of Batgirl in her '60s purple costume would be pretty sweet.

Thoughts?

Keeping in the theme of Super Powers perhaps it'll be Crime Stopper Batman (the blue and grey outfit) and the Wave 16 Robin. I would hope it would be Tim's first costume as that's the Robin I really want and not have to find that ellusive TRU exclusive two pack.

Maybe Joker and Riddler keeping with a Batman theme?

I guess it could be anyone's game.

I honestly can't see it being anything other than this. What else would a Super Powers Penguin fit in with? And I would so buy this. Make it so Mattel.

Maybe a Lex Luthor SuperPowers redo that was hinted to and one other SP themed figure ? I really hope it is a Batman them and if it is I bet the Crime Stopper Batman minus black will be in it. Hmmmm I would not even mind a Riddler from wave 5 redone with more ?'s IF the price was right.

Maybe it will have the "Super Powers" Superman, Wonder Woman or Captain Marvel that all the Super Powers fans want.

Well, that would be one way to get us those robots we were promised back in 2008...

If they were to go with "4th wave" figures, perhaps a re-issue of Man-Bat to keep with a Bat-theme or perhaps a stone-face Bizarro and the red/green Metallo. Funny, I just checked the "4th wave" page and if you don't count the variants of characters we've already gotten there are only 12 left, half of which are/were part of the DCU and could be included in the sub or a potential Superman Legacy line.

If it’s a 3 Pack, I think it would be Batman characters. A Super Powers Batman and Robin make the most sense. A villain pack with Super Powers Joker, Riddler or Catwoman would make sense too.

I know it would be a stretch, but wouldn't it be nice if the Robin was actually a new body? At least if they did the younger Robin :wink:

That would be great, but I don't think we'd be that lucky.

I hope this isn't the case, the Tim Drake Robin in his first costume needs to be done properly, he would need new feet, shins, belt, tunic, shoulders, biceps, forearms (the YJ gloves wouldn't be accurate) and cape. The only parts that could be reused would be the head, hands, pelvis and legs.

And Scarecrow needs a whole new body to go with the new head.

Maybe you'll all get that Cassie Batgirl re-release you've been dying for.

i dont really think thats the 3 pack just was thinking of easy repaint re releases

my guesses for the 3 pack imo would be either
wave 1 batman/wave16 robin/penguin
or penguin/two face (5 pack colors), and wave 16 riddler
