The WTwins were more important than Kamandi or Jemm or OMAC for that matter.. And to give Mattel Credit-- it was an SDCC exclusive and not part of the main line..

Words can barely explain my absolute LOATHING of the Dunder Twins.

Thanks to Young Justice, I actually like Marvin and Wendy better.

We could have had a proper Doomsday for SDCC instead of them. :evil:

See, I absolutely LOVED getting the Wonder Twins. They may have stupid powers but they have good tailors for their suits!

This discussion of the Wonder Twins is exactly why DCUC/DCIE can't/couldn't continue. There's too much division as to what figures should or shouldn't be done. I'm EXTREMELY disappointed that the line ended, but the more we talk about it, the more I understand why it's over. :(

I imagine they really thought they could bank on the DC Enthusiast wanting to be completest. For myself there may have been 1 or 2 figures I didn't care about from each year. Namely Metal Men and Doom Patrol. I skipped on those figures myself. At retail I skipped on Beware the Batman and all the Injustice figures, the Green Lantern I almost bought. But to think everyone was going to scarf up everything was a long shot and they really did burn through A-lists and notable characters. I hope the 6" come back one day, I personally believe the problem with distribution helped kill that line. Mattel and Hasbro need to get retail reps back out in the field. In my days of toy retail, they were my best friends. Would buy back peg warmers to clear up integrities so I can get new merchandise, would put out their companies stuff during Christmas. I never see reps any more.

If I had to choose only ONE more DCUC figure, it would have to be Mon-El---the Legion just isn't the same without him. I'm surprised Matty never got around to making him: he had a fairly substantial push in the comics a few years ago (complete with 'S' emblem uniform that would have made a fine variant).

I loved they did the wonder twins. As a kid of the 80s I grew up with super powers super friends and always wanted figures if them to play with in all my imaginary adventures. So things like zan, jayna, gleek, el dorado, black Vulcan, apache chief, Priscilla cheetah, lex in his pink green outfit, giganta, Grundy, captain cold, alien brainiac made my day. I also grew up on Garcia Lopez art so let's getting all those characters he beautifully drew in figure form like all the satellite jla, Perez new titans of raven, wondergirl, kid flash and cyborg made my day.
Like I mentioned earlier in the thread it sucks we never did get a bronze age supergirl, mxyztplk. Those were the only two we didn't get that were on all the dc promotional stuff and style guide from the 80s not to have been done in dcuc. And of course sp Mr freeze and kalibak.

I think Scott should have seen to it that the priority from the start was to get out all those high profile a and b listers before doing the c and d stuff. Motuc lucked out there. He quickly cut the crap with all the concept filler stuff and focused on the higher profile stuff.

It was a lot easier to be a completist when they were 11.99 but 21.99 is quite a bit different.

Very true.

At this point, I think 6" figures are pricing themselves out of my buying habits. A return of DCUC at retail would be loved but most likely I wouldn't buy them simply because of pricing.

I would want a figure of JADE to complete this trio.

I hear you Joe, I would love a Jade figure, my wife passed away last January... and all she ever wanted... ever wanted was a Jade figure in any costume. That was her favorite DC character ever! She didn't care for DC Select. I would have loved a Jade myself!

Thank you, that's what I was trying to say in my post and could not get the right wording. That's money better spent on my son or a movie to me. Even at his young age we're trying to make him aware of sales.

Pretty easy to pass on Khamandi if theres no Ultra Humanite part. That's the thing I use to buy them all to build the BAF but they got rid of that. What annoys me is the sub made NO effort to try and give extra value to make people think twice about buying from China. I liked 3 or 4 figures from last year BUT am stuck with a bunch of Figures I cant even sell on Ebay for $20 free shipping !!!!!!!!!!!
