 Post subject: Infinite Crisis - one line, or lines for every mini series?

Just wondered what everyone thought.

All together Infinite Crisis covers:

Countdown to Infinite Crisis #1
The OMAC Project #1-6 (also linked to July's Superman and Wonder Woman books)
Day of Vengeance (also linked to JSA #73-75)
Villain's United #1-4
Rann-Thanagar War #1-6
The Return of Donna Troy #1-4
JLA #115-119: Crisis of Conscience
Infinite Crisis #1-7

That's a lot of potential for really great figures, even if it does mean a repeat of some of the core characters.

So should DCD do this as one line covering everything, or several individual lines each with 2-3 waves?

Personally I think it should all be done under one line, that way at least we're guarenteed they'll all be in the same style.

I agree - I like the idea of one "Infinite Crisis" line; keeps the same style and there's much more variety of characters that way.

Hey Superfly!

Anyway, I guess I'm in the other camp. I don't mind the differences so much on the scale of the DCD figures so, if they didn't do something like this, it wouldn't bug me. I think it's a neat idea though, but I don't think DCD really cares about scale or the ability to put all these characters together and have them look "uniform".

Very good. How are things with you? I keep seeing your posts at RTM and DCD but I just never wanted to post there.

Now I go and hear Mr. Marx starts his own site. I think to myself: Self- head over there. So hear I am.

I'd like one line, in the same scale.

Yeah hopefully this is the type of line that can run for 2 or even 3 waves a year and deliver both the big names (to please marketing) and the minor characters (to please the fans).

I was also thinking that maybe they could make this line an exception and give it 6 figures per wave. There's room in the cases and 2005 did see the jump from mostly 4 to mostly 5 figure waves, so it's at least a possibility!

I voted for multiple lines because this might give us the opportunity for more characters.

An OMAC line with Booster Gold, Rocket Red, Fire and so on...

A Day of Vengeance line with Blue Devil, Ragman, etc...

A Villains United line with Luthor, Reverse Flash, Cheshire, Dr. Psycho, Black Adam, etc...

A Rann Thanagar War line with Hawkwoman and MA Hawkgirl, a modern Adam Strange and other space heroes and villains (maybe Captain Comet, or Darkstars if they're involved)

Whereas an Infinite Crisis line might get us just a fraction of this since they will all be lumped together.

Just my opinion though. I could be wrong. :D

Man,

either way is fine with me. If this sprawling marketing behemoth actually spawns good toys then that will be one saving grace for me...

As a comic story it is everything I don't like about comics (sensationalized deaths, massive crossovers, lead ins to BIG events and SHOCKING revalations...).

But hey, if I gets me good toys... :D
