No new Legion figures? :(

That's pretty much all I want.

Nothing so far interests me whatsoever- so saves me some cash

As far as that new policy-- thats fine- it what we said they should do last year- but they really better cut the limits down to less than 10 per customer.(especially since thats per order- not per account)- Especially since someone like Brians Toys could pretty much hoard the market on a certain figure if they choose.

But I dont think they thought it through, I mean is everything not MOTU or DC not selling out right now- It doesnt ever allow a new collector get into their lines- just to try it- not sign a year away-- so what do they do now about advertising- do they do a bunch of Ads-- and when customers sign on on sale day - everything is already sold out-- or do they not advertise at all -and then complain that no one is buying-- I really just dont understand Mattel.

I am confused as to what we get for the rest of 2012 ? Arent we missing some oversized ? Next year looks great but wish they picked either LEad or Rita for this year not both! But I really would like to see a better pic of lead the Darkseid buck ? Is that just his torso? How big will Lead be? Hope he has some weapons I imagine reusing Irons ball and chain. But overall Mattel did a good job I was honestly surprised, Uncle Sam was a shock but he was on the fan list with Phantom Stranger so does that mean Libra is waiting in the wings ?

2013 sub figures, will go to production if they hit the pre-orders...will do fully tooled figs if they do enough numbers

12 figures, $18 each or $20 the day of sale

Jan is Blue Lantern Saint Walker
Feb is Phantom Stranger
March is Elongated Man
April is Larfleeze
May is Wally West Flash
Monseiur Mallah for April as the oversized


Except for Phantom Stranger (who I'll probably sell), this is a pretty strong start. Two of the most wanted right off the bat (Wally and Ralph).

The rest of this year is okay. I'm glad to finish off the Metal Men, but Uncle Sam and Constine aren't anywhere near the top of my lists.

Was really hoping for a Mera. :cry:

Mera and Huntress would have sold a lot more 2013 subs.

Not to me. At least not more than Wally and Ralph did.

Signed up before seeing the pics because I'm easy like that. Very happy with the announcements, but couldn't identify the figures in that video, even knowing who they were ;)

Now I've just got to hope it goes ahead.

I have Black Mask and Constantine coming... and working on Poison Ivy... after that I'm done.

Uncle Sam and the Metal Men don't excite me... as for the 2013 subscription I want, I do but Digital River is a nightmare I want no part of.

I'm not saying replace them. I'm saying if they had shown those two instead of maybe Larfleeze and Phantom Stranger then it might have been better.

I think Platinum/Tin and Uncle Sam/Dollman are counting as oversized figures. There should be 4 and the other two would be Rocket Red and Elastigirl.

I think Platinum counts as regular figure- we were only getting three oversized figures this year- Rocket Red, and now Elasti-Girl and Lead. I am kinda happy that there are just 12 regular figures next year though as the oversized cost a lot more.

No there were 4 and Platinum is definitely one. They've addressed that before.
