So I got Batzarro yesterday as DCUC ended not with a bang, but a whimper. And I began to think about all the figures we didn't get. Surprisingly, one figure rises above all the rest for me and I was wondering if there was a lot of that going around with fellow AFIers.

So, simple question:

You can have ONE more (and only ONE more) DCUC figure. Who or what is it and why?

For me, it's easy: MERA.

Why? I'm a huge Aqua-nerd plus her profile has been raised significantly in the last 5 years. She deserves the 4H treatment.

How about you?

I'd love to say Mera but the one character that would have looked great and that got stuck in my head as someone I really wanted was Liberty Belle.

Indigo-1 the Lanterns look stupid without that one. Not that I want her so much but I'm just taking that bullet for utter completion. I just can't understand how she got missed in lieu of Indigo Atom? Who is also a nice impressive figure and quite a call back to his barbarian days.

Byrne era Supergirl. I know lots of people wanted the hot pants version but the Byrne or Crisis Supergirl are who's missing from my collection.

Interesting that everybody's pick has been female so far.

And yet this past year's sub only had 2 women. :roll:

Ummmm, Mera. No, Stephanie Brown. I meant Miss Martian. Definitely Miss Martian. Did I say Miss Martian ? I meant Vixen.

For me it's a tossup between Dawnstar and Vixen. I'd have to go with Dawnstar.

Much like motuc feeling complete when we got the vintage moth, pop filmation and key filmation characters I always felt that for me the line would feel complete when we had the characters featured heavily in dc promotions and the Garcia Lopez style guide from the 80s.

To that end out of those characters in reaaaaally disappointed not to have gotten to aqualad, changeling, speedy, Perez zatanna, rima, mera, sp Mr freeze, super powers kalibak.

But if only one figure left its have to be hot pants supergirl with a mxyz pack in,,,cuz those two really are must haves and such key characters that is shocking they aren't in the most comprehensive dc six inch line when crap like omac, kamandi, jemm, Jonah, despero, gold captain atom, Constantine, batzarro actually did. Poor planning.

THERE CAN BE ONLY ONE!

Look at all you rule-breakers trying to sneak in multiple characters. For shame! :evil:

Sack up and pick ONE!

:wink:

If it is an "anything goes, whoever I want" I will always choose:

1st Appearance BLACK ORCHID

but if I need to be more realistic and choose a figure that would "fit in" with what we've already gotten I would choose ....







Black Orchid
(I'm not a cheater :wink: )

I'll go with Hellhound. Why? He's a favorite villain of mine and would of made for an obscure choice to see in the sub.

There's more than one character I would want. Since that doesn't answer the original post, then I would say NONE. The line is dead. Time to move on…

I'm going to go with Granny Goodness. She was one I wanted in both DCU and the JLU line. Given she'd be a more deluxe figure I don't know if I'm breaking the rules of the game 8)
