Would it be possible for Mattel to also use BAF in the new JLU figures. It could help with even distrobution of each character just like someone suggested it did for Marvel legends and will for DCSH. Would be kinda neat way to get bigger characters and you would only need 6 characters for each piece of the BAF. This of course would work with single characters. Or you could have a piece of a character split into 2 waves of the 3 packs.

Brimstone is the first piece I see fitting this category. then STRIPE version 1, the giant robot the guy climbed into.

Hades could also work.

I tried to repost this in the ask Mattel but messed up. Anyway I know we are not supose to make multiple threads of the the same subject but here is a list I made of a few ideas of BAF for JLU:

Amazo (correct scale amazo grey or gold I'd like the gold)
General Eiling ( I think that's how it's spelled)
Winged Victory
S.T.R.I.P.E.
Luthor/Brainiac first phase (one with face in stomach)
Grundy
Extremists (Lord Havok & Gorgon)
Rampage



Oh and love the Hades idea.

I'd like to see Winged Victory released in a boxed set with Shining Knight as well as Vigilante and his Hogg!!


I think Mattel could do an 6-8" line that would fit in most of our requests like Atom smasher, Giganta etc.

I kinda hate the idea of BAF--because I think it would involve me buying more dupes than ever. But I suppose that's why Mattel would like it. I would rather that they retooled some of the 10 inch Figs into Annihilator, Giganta , Atom Smasher (which I feel is coming), and Long Shadow.

I guess Stripe, Rampage, and a few of the others mentioned would be too big as a 10 inch, but I would rather just bigger figs a la Doomsday and Solomon Grundy over a BAF.

I agree. Brimstone and STRIPE 1 are the most likely if Mattel decides to do this.

I don't know if they'll do Build a Figures, I think having the Lava Doomsday and Gorrilla Grodd six pack coming out in the same year shows that Mattel might be doing at least 2 6 packs a year. And if you remember this picture:

It looks like Brimstone may be coming soon, along with a few more villains.

I see these would be for characters bigger than normal but smaller than 10". Not really interested in anything that big.

ps. That's an old picture, been used for advertising before, but never really connected with the toy line.

Out of the one's mentioned... nothing outside of appearance's on the show. :?

I personally would like Brimstone or the annihilator, but what about a giant Spectre? Or those Imperiex robot things that'll be on LOSH soon?

But then I don't really care whether we get BAF's in JLU one way or another...

This could be a great way for us to get characters such as:


Giganta
Annihilator
Rampage
Stripe
A "Real" Big Barda
