Erik, is this poll specifically for suggestions for the retail line or is it for the whole 6" 4H sculpted brand in general?...

You and your silly questions. Top 10. 6 inch. DC. 4H. Ignore how we finally get them. The goal is to let Mattel know what we want.

Eh, I didn't include the Legionaires because I think they'd be better in another multipack. So if you take that out of the equation, there is at least some similarity. Some common figures between them.

Yeah, I said that and maybe now people can see how it is impossible for Mattel to please everyone let alone I'd say a large percentage with every figure they choose. More of a reason then ever for them to have a CnC figure. That might come back to bite them.

I will say I have see several characters appear on multiple lists- namely Ra's and other Bat-characters. Which I think is a character group very likely to see a lot of love from Mattel.

A lot of love for the dark knight rises versions - not the DCUC compatable bat characters - because Batman Legacy is being put on hiatus until 2013 according to Matty's Q&A forum.

Unless DC All Stars will fill up with bat characters . . which would make Batman Legacy kinda pointless hahaa

Id say Huntress is the Leader in the Clubhouse-- (of course costume specific- even she is all over the map)

I pulled the discussion separate from the voting. Its just easier to admin the votes that way.

I would love a Ragdoll! With Catman, Deadshot and Bane I have 3/6 of the Secret Six! But I hope with the New 52 I'll see a John Constantine!

Okay I tried to omit all weird, obscure, "classic" and even plain clothes characters (Gordon, Luthor and Alfred) that really belong in DCIE and tried to focus on characters that would do well at retail. I think. Not that plain clothes action figures don't sell at retail, I think they do, I just tried to focus away from them for more BANG POW ACTION.

Like, There's nothing I want more than the Metal Men but i've always gotten the impression that DCIE is for that. Same with oversize characters. I really wanted to say Shining Knight, but my wild imagination says that Knight could be an oversize figure with the horse in the subscription. I wanted to say Doomsday but I just think that's an oversize figure. I don't know, I just tried to think of what would thrive at retail.

I think Gordon and Luthor are probably the only clothed characters to do well. Just my own retail opinion.

Because until now there hasn't been a single DCUC wishlist posted on this board.

Ever.







:P

my list was comprised of the ten figures I want the most that have niether been released nor announced thusfar. I thought someone said just the 10 most wanted, not the 10 most wanted and most likely to appear at retail or least likely to be included in the sub, which, at this point, I don't see how we have even a remote means to gague something like that. yes, it has been stated that the sub is how mattel plans to finish up teams like doom patrol and metal men, but, again, this was set up as 10 most wanted 6" dc figures.

now, if we're excluding the metal men and doom patrollers and just talking retail wave, I'd say:
1: woozy winks with plastic man as a lamp post pack in
2: phantom stranger
3: classic 70's black lightning
4: hush
5: assuming classic mr. mxyzptlk will be packed in a superman legacy wave like bat-mite was, a 2 pack of alex ross (from world's funnest) versions of mr. mxyzptlk & bat-mite
6: isis
7: anton arcane w un-men pack ins
8: ambush bug
9: mallah w the brain
10: mera

the only dcuc i have so far is doom patrol, metal men, plastic man and swamp thing, but i would buy every single one of those figures i just listed.
