I'm going to be into this line more for the Batman characters than anything.
Out of What was shown at toyfair of the DCIH Batman characters, I know I'm going to get nine of them.
Also will get Question if the JLU one doesn't come out first.
Then theres a few characters that if I can get them without a 3pack I will get them (ie Wonder Girl and Jay Garrick).
Might also get Adam Strange.

I think Mattel is being very concious of the no Hal in JLU and trying to make up for it by giving us Hal in DCUC and DCIH.

Lets play a game. Pretend you get to pick the first wave of DCIH.
2 themed 3 packs.
8 single pieces.
go for it.


Green apples and Infinite Oranges. Kudos to Mattel to doing that, but DC/WB just needs to pull it's head out of it's hindquarter and allow a JLU Hal. It's the only one that truly counts in my book.

As for your game, let's play! Not necessarily the best 1st wave assortment, but it'd be really cool nonetheless:

-A Kingdom Come trinity 3 pack
-A Speedster Legacy 3 pack(Max Mercury, Jay Garrick, Wally West)

-Blue Beetle Jaime Reyes
-Red Lantern Laira
-Liberty Belle
-Brainiac(the cool looking new version as seen in the one page ads in DC Comics)
-Zoom(Hunter Zolomon)
-Black Lightning(current JL costume)
-Lex Luthor in that cool armor, maybe even with all of the different colored kryptonite rings?
-Supergirl! I know we're getting her already, but this one had better be sculpted correctly, and not look like a dollar store bootleg reject version. Until I see one that is suitable, then my request stays.

I have to agree on this one. There are a few figures that I feel like I've been waiting my entire life for and Supergirl is one of the. The prototype for DCIH is certainly closer than the JLU one (which is AWEFUL!) but still not quite there... Until I see one that's done RIGHT, she's in my voting list too.

I've been waiting for a Batgirl that's done well too. There has never been one released that's good enough. She's always underestimated and over-cartooned :evil:

Here's what I'd really love to see in this line:

Vehicles and Playsets!

One of the coolest things about the DC universe is that it's huge. It's infinite. Just like the name of this line. :wink:

Think about the playset and diorama ideas: The Batcave. The Fortress of Solitude. Themyscira. Atlantis. Gorilla City. The Planet Oa. Titans Tower. The JLA Watchtower. Dinosaur Island. The Flash Museum. Arkham Aslyum. Belle Reve. The House of Mystery. The House of Secrets. Lexcorp. S.T.A.R. Labs. Warworld. Fawcett City. Nanda Parbat. Sub Diego. Blackhawk Island. Smallville. Bizarro World. Kandor. Mount Olympus. Skartaris. Apokolips. New Genesis. The Source Wall. That's just scratching the surface.

Then there's the vehicle possibilities. The Whirly-Bat. A Legion time bubble. The Arrow Car. The Invisible Plane. A Cosmic Treadmill. Hawkman's Thanagarian space cruiser. The Haunted Tank.

A smaller scale and a lower price point means vehicles and playsets are a real possibility. Mattel has the DC Universe now and the sky's the limit. There's so much more to the DCU then just Gotham and Metropolis. I hope they go nuts and explore different cities, different worlds and even different eras. From the beginning of time to the 30th century, from Atlantis to Apokolips, from the JSA's brownstone headquarters to the JLA's gleaming watchtower, it's all there and begging to be made.

Mike
(C'mon, Mattel! We DC fans have been waiting for something like this for a long, long time! Deliver the goods!)

At this point that is the only thing that would make me want this line. I already have four inch DCU charecters Mattel needs to give me a GOOD reason to buy this new line because I'm perfectly happy with JLU (so long as it stays alive at target!) Hal Jordan or not, Mattel hasn’t convinced me to buy Infinite Heroes yet.

exactly (although, the way I am, I will see them in the store and cave in)... but I don't like the DCUC-style these IH seem to have... I like the JLU cartoon style... so playsets would be awesome... ALSO because you could use them with the JLU figures too

I see a resurgence in used vehicles and playsets in the used toy market. How cool would it be to have 25 DC heroes on a GIJoe air craft carrier? Too cool. 8)

54 figures?!!! :shock: :D


Amazing, ain't it?

Man, the wait for this line is excruciating!

What's amazing is that some of the characters coming in Wave 1 weren't even shown at Toy Fair (new Atom, Guy Gardner) and Toy Fair already showed a staggering breadth of characters.

Awesome. Can't wait for pics!

...and the TRU set is an 8 pack? This is the GL related pack? Whoa...

Yeah, I'm really curious to see how things have developed since Toy Fair.

Plus, I wanna see Atom and Guy Gardner, since they weren't even shown at Toy Fair!

You have to be a Fwoosh member, which I am not, to see the pics.
