Sorry if this is an old question; I'm new here so be patient with me! :)

What is the one figure you would love to see DC Direct make that you know, deep in your heart, that you will probably never, ever see?

For me, it's a character from the 1960's "Mystery in Space" sci-fi anthology, Ultra the Multi-Alien. Ethan Van Sciver drew an updated version in a run of "Superman/Batman" not too long ago, and you can see a picture here: www.comicvine.com/ ultra-the-multi-alien/29-24304/

Man, I loved that character!

For completion's sake, I'd like to see Johnny Thunder and his Thunderbolt along with the original Mr. Terrific to round out the classic JSA, but that particular scale seems to be long gone by now.

I don't think we'll be getting too many Perez figures since the History of the DCU line looks to have stalled a bit. Same goes for a third Maguire JLI wave, which is a real bummer. :(

I really would've liked one more wave of the New Gods line from DC Direct. The style is fun, and I love those characters. So, in the vein of that, the one figure I want from DC Direct is Granny Goodness. She's never had a figure in any line, and she's one of my favorite characters.

I would absolutely LOVE a 1:6 deluxe edition of Black Orchid. With those crazy flowing wings of hers ... man, that would be one hell of a figure!

1) Rocket Red. Count me in with those who think we really need a wave 3 of J L International. Rocket Red is sorely needed as a figure, with no 6" version ever made. Maybe, since there is one joining the cast of Justice League Generation Lost, we might get one as part of a Brightest Day assortment. One can hope.

2) Zauriel. Grant Morrison's JLA never got the DC Direct figure treatment. Most of the characters have been made in one style or another, but Zauriel is still unmade. At this point, the character has almost completely disappeared from anyone's radar. We could use a wave or two of Howard Porter art inspired JLA.

And I want an Ed Benes Huntress and a George Perez Zatanna.

So far this is an AWESOME list! There isn't a thing on it that I wouldn't love to see. Ma Hunkel in her Red Tornado outfit, with a removable saucepan helmet, would be terrific. I would also love to see Johnny Thunder and the Thunderbolt. All the rest, too, especially a really good, detailed Rocket Red. And I love the idea of the Ed Benes Huntress figure. Thanks, all -- you've given me lots to drool over.

I guess I would love to see the classic Silver Age Teen Titans line-up completed in the DC 13-Inch scale. Aqualad. Speedy. Kid Flash. Wonder Girl. I never owned the Mego Teen Titans and this would be the closest I would ever come to owning these in a style I love (cloth costumes). Plus, we would already have a in-scale Robin, besting the Mego Teen Titans! As Robin is the only figure to use the DC 13-Inch teen buck, I am really surprised we haven't seen at least Kid Flash.

The only toy line to ever complete this line-up, in-scale, is DC Direct's Pocket Super-Heroes. C'mon, DC Direct, go two-for-two :wink:

YES! I had such a crush on Amethyst when I was little. She was my Kitty Pryde of the DC Universe.

Tula (original Aqua-girl), Dolphin, and the Fisherman.

I'm hoping against hope that I'll see a regular Mera some day from them.

Powergirl and Vardoz 2pack, from his flying head ship: she's wearing that (drool) white gown, and he's got that creepy 70s porn star thing happening. :lol:

I would have liked to seen more characters related to the Starman series. Mikaal, Ragdoll, Will Payton, Medphyll, and Shade (as he appeared in the series).
