I also loved the Pocket Heroes! I still have the JLA set up around The Table. I have a special fondness for the pocket heroes ever since my daughter, who was much younger then, grabbed the Atom and ran around the house yelling something like, "Look at me! I'm life size!"

I always wanted the George Perez Crisis on Infinite Earths line to continue. We got a great armored Luthor, robot Brainiac, and Flash from this line and I would've loved to have seen a normal Superman among other characters. The Batman wasn't bad either. It seemed to be the perfect line to make a number of characters in the same style and scale. I loved it and it was the first line to give me the characters as I remember them growing up in the 80's. But alas, it went away too quickly.

That's what makes it a DC Direct. That special "exclusive" feeling you get when the line is prematurely ended after 2 waves (sometimes only 1!)

:lol:

That Crisis Brainiac was sweet. It's my favorite of his many incarnations and a great figure with awesome articulation. The Crisis line also gave us the first ever Earth-2 Superman, Robin and Huntress along with Psycho-Pirate. It had a lot of unfulfilled potential left.

(1) Justice league 7 in their civilian cloths.

(2) Superman 6" fig in a SUPER detailed coffin from the series Death Of Superman. Complete with oversized red cape for draping over the coffin, & to make the wave complete the remaining 6 JL members in funereal cermoney costumes.

(3) all earth GL wave: Allen Scott, Hal, John, Kyle, Guy

(4) 5 pack WW boxset with Hipoyta, Alcley One (or how ever you say it) Capt. of the Gard, Cercie the witch, Donna Troy & WW herself in Amazon Island outfit (no American flag costume).


yup......these will never get made.

Unless the series is entitled "Blackest Night" :lol:

Put me down for more DC minimates as well.

And I'm afraid I'll have to add Tempest to my prior line, especially with him being dead and all. :evil:

I bet the new Aqualad will get a figure before grown up Garth. :roll:

I am still trying to find a DC Direct sculpt that really blows me away; however, most look awful. Off hand, The Shazam series were decent. If I had to pick one, as it will probably never show up in DCUC due to certain people's belligerent "trademark" viewpoint on the bible, I would say Lucifer Morningstar.

Don't fret. Once this new guy bombs, he'll be Choi-ed out and Garth will be back again. That's how they roll in comics nowadays. :wink:

Don't know if its been said, but I'd love for them to do the Justice Lords. Mattel's wired plastic & paints would not do them......Justice (no pun intended lol) :lol:

Put me down for more Pocket Superheroes, particularly the rest of the Legion of Super-heroes. My five year old son has been getting into the Legion and has had me read the stories through the middle of the second DC Archive. He'd love, love, love a complete set of members.

Come to think of it, a complete Legion, including silver and bronze age costumes would be awesome!

Longbow Hunter Green Lantern. I know that there is a Ollie coming out that is real close, but I wouldn't mind seeing an actual LBH GA without the gloss paint application.

I think that I posted this in a different thread here, but I would love to see Ma and Pa Kent. I talked with DCDirect years ago at Wizard World Chicago and they said that they would probably never make them. :(

The Pocket Heroes were great. The Mini-Mates were cool, but something about the Pocket Heroes just felt more old school cool. I have every one. Now make some more, DC!
