Seems like a perfect place to use that Dr. Polaris sculpt- doesnt it Mattel.

Remember kids love magnets.. (so much that they eat them and then get toys banned or recalled because they or their parents are stupid--- Darwin was right for a reason)

I'd rather:

Lex Luthor
Joker
Cheetah (although Circe would be an easier figure to put out)
Captain Cold (although REVERSE FLASH would be the easiest figure to put out)
Sinestro
Black Manta

I still think a 'Legion of Doom' template for villains is the way to go, with the exception of The Joker becuase, come on, he is THE most popular villain.

Windows?

He had a mini-series where he went up against a squad of cybernetic soldiers gone wrong led by Ronald Evers (a name which supports my theory that that they are a thinly veiled ripoff of The Reavers from the X-Men) . Yeah, it was terrible. There was CyborGirl but that just seems derivative.

Historically, yeah, I'd have to agree with Gizmo. But the idea of Dr Polaris makes the most sense. I'm amazed DC didn't jump on that.

I don't think DC will ever be "smart" enough to make Dr. Polaris a major villain for Cyborg. Yeah, high level magnetics and computing don't always mix do they?


Honestly, it always been about "obvious" opposites in classic Hero/Villain pairings for the most part.

Hyper Focused/sane (Batman) v. Insanely Manic (joker)
Brawn (Superman) v Brain (Luthor)
Order (Flash) v Chaos (Reverse Flash) (or I suppose that is possibly "constructive possibility" v "entropy"...)

following that logic, wouldn't Cyborg's major nemesis be something along the lines of "Off-the-Grid" Man or some other ultra low tech character?

not that this has anything to do with the toy line mind you .....

Um... is there any sort of Amish Super Villain? Farmer Brown maybe.

Saw Lex at my Target yesterday.

Do you guys think Aquaman will be repackaged as a single?

Cyborg vs Doctor Organic, an evil nudist hellbent on ending the technological age and restoring Earth to its-


... Never mind. Cyborg just punched him. With his robort arm. Apart from some serious dental work, it's all over.

Actually, what about Mammoth? Cyber-enhanced strength and senses up against sheer brute force. Aren't they about equal in terms of strength? Vic can't hack him or give him a virus but can only duke it out. Mammoth can damage Vic's systems but will eventually tire out.

Not according to Daniel. Aquaman, Cyborg and Wonder Woman are all exclusive to the set.

I found him at Target today so keep checking those shelves.

I'm thinking a headswap with a JLU Lex and I'll have a nice sized power armor version. The GL body may make a great base for a custom Kilowog and I'm sure I could find some use for Cyborgs robot body.

I liked how you can use the Luthor armor as Steel.

This is exactly the info I have been waiting for. Now I know I need to buy the group set.

Here is how the B&B body looks with a modified JLU Lex Luthor head.
