Here's my problem, I'm always thinking about ways to get what I want.
:D
How about this:

A wave of teen characters - orginal and modern Robin, Aqualad, Kid Flash (Wally & Bart), the Wonder Girl's, Jaquim Thunder. Since they are smaller than the typical 6-inch figure, pack-in the 5th dimensional imps - Bat-Mite, Mr. Mxyzptlyk, Zook, Quisp and i dunno, LKZ?.
BAF: Thunderbolt (one big imp)

Imps and Titans don't really go together, but the smaller figures together presents a value to the buyer, expecially moms and dads - hey look! 2-for-1!

Doin' a little spitballin' this a.m.

Me too, but it's tough to lure women into my condo...even tho it's 15 feet from the pool. ;)

Seriously, I'm sure the Four Horsemen are developing a 'Robin' type smaller body so they can interchange parts for smaller characters.

Peace,

Chip

Actually, I was trying to think of ways to get the imps. I first thought about Bat-Mite with Ace, the Bat Hound, Mxy with Krypto, Quisp with Toppo but I don't think they'd sell that well. Plus what do you link Zook with?

After the Superman and Bizarro flood, the last thing I want to see are peg warmers.

As cool as the BAFs we've seen are, I could go with a wave a year that included an accessory character instead of BAF pieces. I like your concept, T. Rath, so how about a Lantern wave with Guardians instead of BAF pieces? Could all use the same body, just different heads...

I'm not the GL fan many are. I just want Hal for the JLA. But I would never say no to something so many fans want, so you can put my name on that petition too.

How about this:
Basic GL body, each charcter in the wave gets a unique head
Basic Guardian body with unique head.
BAF: Kilowog.

Would be a HUGE cost saver for Mattel and give GL fans a ready made army all in one wave.
Could be done as a bonus exclusive 6th wave to a retailer?
