We haven't done this in a while. Magog has his 'survivor' thread. Here, pretend you are the decider of the next wave for DC Animated figures from Mattel.

Rules: Stick to a limited number of products. Product must be a variety of price points. Introducing new product types (like a 2 pack) is risky as it must compete for shelf space. Vehicles probably hinge on sales of prior figures. Playsets hinge on sales of prior large pieces like vehicles.
Anything you can think of goes.

what I love most about this is seeing the names of characters who I really enjoyed on the series but completely forgot about when making my own list.

Despero indeed!

Well, my list would suck compared with any of yours (even Chips!) so I don't think I'll make one. Unless I'm that desparate to not work on my Masters homework. Which will probably happen at some point today.

Great lists...very cool stuff.

Joker, as in Batman Beyond Return of the Joker

Galatea

WAVE 3 Singles:

Livewire

WAVE 1 TWO Packs, including appropriate reprinted DC Comic, and some accessories. Like the current Star Wars two packs, only with DC Animated characters. Four to a case, and two of each per. Retail price=$10:

1) Flash JLU Wally version/Captain Cold
2) Green Lantern John Stewart, with wearable green ring accessory. GL symbol has a white circle, and not silver. Goatee and bald, too. Packed with GL Katma Tui.
3) Superman/Lex Luthor, new sculpt with his battle armor. No snap-on junk, as he's sculpted that way.
4) Arsenal/Nightwing

WAVE 2 Two packs:

1) Trickster/Pied Piper
2) Joker/Harley Quinn
3) Firestorm Ronnie Raymond/Killer Frost
4) Aquaman, Superman the Animated Series version/Black Manta

WAVE 3 Two Packs:

1) Mister Terrific/Hourman
2) Giganta(4 inch, naturally)/Wonder Woman
3) Supergirl, adult version/Brainiac 5
4) Dr. Light/Cyborg

Target exclusive packs. $20 a piece, At least two different ones each year, excluding repaints. Still mommy-friendly, but now even cooler for the rest of us:

1st one: Superman, Batman, Aquaman. Packed with LOBO, Red Claw, Ocean Master

2nd: Green Lanterns John Stewart, HAL JORDAN, Kyle Rayner, Salaak, Kilowog(correctly resized and newly sculpted), and Mongul

There would also be a direct from Mattel online collector's site, where you can order ANY figure previously available in earlier JLU/JL/Batman/Superman lines. Figs from the current series would be made available after one year, give or take.
