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 just want to see Desaad, Kalibak, Steppenwolf, Parademons, and Mantis. If memory serves, those are the Super Powers characters Mattel has yet to cover. From the 4th world, I mean. There's still the other SP characters like Cyborg, Martian Manhunter, and Tyr that need to be in the DCUC line.

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.

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

C.

thats a good point. its much easier to get figures at 10 bucks each than 15. especially when the one for 10 has better articulation, and accessories (though i gotta admit, OMACs extra hands kicked ass)

I've seen the quardians for around $7.00 a piece at KayBee toys recently. Cas, that's in the Dallas area by the way. I know the outlet store in Terrel had one for sure and you might want to check Grapevine mills as well. Good luck.

I"m not an "army" builder per say, but I do like a few multiples of non descript/ faceless goons here and there. I've got 4 Hydra goons and that's it. I'd get at least 4 Parademons (6 if you coun't two more for my son). I've got a budget to stick to, but do like a few multiples here and there when funds allow.

well I have 50 OMACS and when they first came out I only paid 10.00 ea. from CSC, he gave me a slight deal, lol and for a start, I would intially get 25 Parademons, I love army builders if they make tactical sense and the OMACS did, I will buy more eventually

Actually, I thought that figure was pretty cool. The Weaponers played a big role in the Crisis on Infinite Earths.

I'm all for Parademons, I wouldn't buy more than 3 though. If they did variants (Have one with screaming face, one with pike instead of gun, etc) that would be the motivation for me to buy multiples. :)

I just remembered something though, what about Parademon from Secret Six?? :P Sure, he got fried and died but that would be a cool stand-alone figure and do Darkseid minion parademons as a 50/50 case variant! :wink:

Or even better put him in an entire 6 pack with the Secret Six which would be awesome but'll prolly never happen. :oops:
