It's been said that SuperPowers is something of a guide/template for Mattel on the DCUC line. Well, if that's true, then perhaps there may be a Parademon figure in our future? That could be the lines first army builder type figure...

Just a thought that popped into my head while reading the new issue of Death of the New Gods today...

That's a great idea for an army builder! The Parademon was one of my favorite Super Powers figs when I was growing up. Really, all of the Fourth World figures were my favorites. I can't even imagine how cool a 4H sculpted Parademon would be!

I'd buy around 3 to 4 of them.

No, no, the Parademon should come with its BAF piece. However, the piece should be something that could be used multiple times in creating a BAF. I've heard someone suggest that a Marvel armybuilder could have Stiltman's legs; that way, you only need one Stiltman, but you can make him taller by purchasing multiple armybuilders.

Can you imagine a Starro wave where the tentacles are all interchangeable? With a single armybuilder, you could build multiple Starros (with another character having the center piece of Starro). The idera isn't perfect, but it could work.

Parademons are my #! choice for army builders. Starro is a good C&C idea. Interchangeable GLC heads might also work. Sorry I'm not too creative today.

Do people really army build? It looks cool when I see it it in some displays but I thought that was the exception not the rule.

Army building in the G.I.Joe community is very popular! I can see it happening in other toylines.

I am currently army building Parademons for my Super Powers collection!

I wonder how wide the demand is for such things. I know some folks do this with big diaramas of Snow troopers or some such things, but I think most collectors only go for 'one of each'.

It's interesting. I talked to DC Direct about this at SDCC this year. They said that their OMACs and Weaponers of Qward figures didn't sell any better than anything else they've done.

If I were to base things on how one of our friends in VA is piling up his Hydra army, I'd say Hasbro is probably doing good with those Hydras. Here are a couple of pics of his recent hauls:

Someone at DC was clearly off his rocker to assume anyone wanted that lame-o Weaponer of Qward figure! What a piece of junk! Who ever even requested him???

I am also on board with as many New God characters as possible! Would love to see DCUC eclipse Super Powers...let's see Granny, Barda, Kanto, Metron etc!!! Love them all.

I'd get a few parademons...4-7 tops. I thought they were the coolest looking 4th Worlders. The re-design made them look even more demonic.

At $15 a pop, who can an afford an army of OMACS or Qwards?
