Hey Gang-

I was hoping you guys could help me with a list I'm putting together of the "lost" products/figures Mattel.
These would be things that we know were tooled up but we never got them. This is NOT a wishlist thread or a "things we saw on a sales sheet" thread, but something that we either have seen a prototype for or something we just haven't gotten yet (like the Naked DCUC Cheetah). It could be from any Mattel line, not just the ones I have listed below.

Here's what I was able to think up off the top of my head:

DC Universe Classics -
Modern Red Tornado (the wave 1 variant)
All Gold Dr. Fate
"Naked Cheetah"
Light Blue "Super Powers" colored Superman
"Super Powers" colored Wonder Woman (with yellow costume accents instead of gold)
"Super Powers" Shazam (with yellow on costume instead of gold)
"Super Powers" Penguin :)
"Super Powers" Lex Luthor (using the updated lower torso from the Orange lantern version)


Batman Brave and the Bold 5"
Flash
Shazam
Gentleman Ghost
Dr. Polaris



JLU
Translucent hair Volcana (with eyebrows)
"Tracksuit" Batman

DC Infinite Heroes
Hawkgirl
Harley Quinn
Poison Ivy
Batgirl
Batman (Golden Age))
Superman
Black Manta
white costume Shazam (shown on card back)

Action League
Bat -Man (Mutated Batman)
Robin [Dick Grayson, Earth 2 version]
Solomon Grundy
Blue Beetle [Ted Kord] (figure displayed at SDCC)
Red Tornado w/ legs and a tornado piece on arm (figure also displayed at SDCC)
Teradactyl (seen in Mattel's SDCC 2009 slideshow)
Mission playset 2 = Batman [underwater gear], Black Manta [no spear], Shark (seen in Mattel's SDCC 2009 slideshow)

Action League Figures seen in online photos, via ebay:
Dyna-Mite
Elasti Man
Metal Men [as combined form (Alloy?)]
Scarlet Scarab
Silver Cyclone

JLU:

Fishnet stockings Zatanna

Single release Hawkman repaint - This one... http://www.a2ztoy.com/product_gallery/D ... ose/02.jpg

Orange Shirt/Long Hair Aquaman


Does this list extend to accessories? Such as the infamous DCUC Scythe?

I believe Zatanna was supposed to have blue legs to be more show accurate instead of the fish nets

Also, you can add the modern version of Guardian to the DCUC list.

In the IH list you can add the white tux Joker and the black costume repaint of Black Hand. I had no idea that there was a Batgirl IH prototype out there.

Does the DCUC Golden Age Hawkgirl from the Hawks 2-pack count? Scott mentioned this pack even though we never actually saw pictures. GA Hawkman came out as part of Wave 19 so it seems likely that this pack was already tooled despite getting dropped by retailers.

One of my faces is the all-brown Man Bat from "The Batman". It was shown at Mattel's booth at Comicon about 5-6 years ago, and it was never made :(

As a huge Batman brave bold fan I located a Flash, but are still missing Shazam, Dr Polaris, faceless hunter and Gentleman Ghost! (I'm still kicking myself for missing a Gentleman Ghost prototype on ebay)

There was a Bruce Wayne in a suit from "The Batman" shown at SDCC or WWC one year. Remember thinking it odd that one hand was in his pocket and how the articulation was planned to work or what sort of action feature he had.

The light blue DCUC Bizarro from the cancelled Walmart 2-pack (unless that's the same color scheme from the DCUC vs MOTUC pack)

Would you include the DCAS stuff that's been shown but is currently "status unknown" to us like the DCnU Flash, black costume Supergirl, Flashpoint Plastic Man and Larfleeze

What about the Red Tornado vs Sy-Clone pack that artwork surfaced from?

If you're including "lost" accessories, there's the DCUC Batman Beyond wings, Wonder Woman's Spear, the Kandor that was re-purposed for JLU.

Back in 2008, I asked Scott if that would find its way to retail and his reply was "No, unfortunately that was just a prototype."
