Great interview. Thanks for posting. I met Bill at WonderCon in San Francisco and he is truly a joy to speak to about all things toys.

I liked his list. It had some of the same figures that I wanted. kingdom Come Superman ( JSA )
liberty Belle
Blackhawk

I met Bill at NYCC a few years ago. We talked about the 2nd generation of articulation on the DC Infinite Heroes toy line.

His Metallo choice is the only one I wouldn't be happy about (though I would've bought it, I did buy that idiotic looking OMAC...) but I wouldn't have wanted them in a single wave.

Have high hopes for the "pleading the fifth"...

Same here! A Golden Age Mr. Terrific and Liberty Belle would have been so cool.

His dream wave is a very nice mix that stayed true to the formula that made DCUC work !! Egg Fu would have looked awesome and I liked the 52 storyline. Man I have been trying to hunt down the old DC Universe Classics ads for ever ! I remember that Giganta ad back when Mattel used to try to reach people. There was a really nice ad with the Flash showing all his articulation .

I would have bought his "dream" wave in a heartbeat and with glee. Especially if the CnC was Shaggy Man (although I do admit Egg Fu would've looked great even though I don't care for the character).

Thanks for sharing the link

I think a lot of people would, and would feel that his wave reflected the initial description of the line to a T. Good interview.

Yeah, I'd buy all of that wave in a heartbeat. And every other one beyond that, if it stayed in that style of character choices!

I'd even let them throw in a 'modern' character or two. That's the kind of guy I am. :wink:

Would be great if the line came back under a new name. As much as we got, there was way more that we still could've had....
