In action figures lately there has been a trend to figures that can switch body parts.
Hero Mashers, TMNT Mutations, Power Rangers Mix and Morph, WWE create a superstar...

Do you think Mattel will branch out into a line like Hero Mashers with DC superheroes?
They kinda have with the new Mighty Minis that are recently being found, but I am talking full fledged action figures. They have also taken this approach with their WWE license.

It seems like many times Mattel is playing catchup with Hasbro/Marvel when it comes to new trends in action figures. Toybiz releases their Marvel Legends and it took DC/Mattel a few years to get an equivalent line out. Same with the 4inch figures. Hasbro released attacktix and Mattel came out with their own version later.

I am almost expecting something like this at Toyfair in February.
The complete dream, though, is with Mattel subletting the DC license to so many other companies lately that they would sublet to Hasbro so DC could be part of Hero Mashers. But I know that will never, ever happen.

I like WWE Create a Superstar figures better than the Hero Mashers.
When I first saw WWE Create a Superstar, I thought that Mattel should do that with the DC Heroes and Villains.

I play DC Universe Online which might be a good theme for a DC create a figure line.
Include the base DC Hero or Villain and include extra parts based on the styles featured in the game. Mix and match to create different combinations.

Lord, I hope they don't. I hate those stupid things. Waste of space that could be better occupied by decent action figures.

I'd say lack of retailer interest in anything DC without a movie is probably what kept it from happening. Either that or WBCP not wanting their characters mixed-and-matched and be fun for kids to play with.
