My numbered list was related to the images but my top want is Metron with his chair (seems like a perfect web/con exclusive to me).

I'm not a huge 4th world fan... but I LOVE your checklist and the visual chack lists you put together for this.

I know there is at least one more 4th worlder coming in DCUC... I just wasn't told who it was.

I'm glad you like it. I'm hoping that Toy Guru and/or the 4H print out the want list image and start working on it. :D

I'm glad to hear about the DCUC, now I have to wonder who it will be....I would love for them to do Metron with his chair in that scale too. You know they would come up with a badass chair.

I really like the comparison between the DCD New Gods set and the DCUC figures... but you forgot DCUC Mr. Miracle, perhaps my favorite of the bunch!

What! How the hell did I do that? I had it there ready to go! Thanks for letting me know; I'll fix it.

Edit: fixed!

I guess I should have added a question on the end that asked people to list their top five off the big want list I provided.

My top five are:

1. Darkseid (from JLU final episodes Alive/Destroyer)
2. Metron (with chair)
3. Desaad
4. Kalibak
5. Kanto

KIRBYTASTIC post, xrmc20! :)

I just purchased the four Kirby Four World omnibuses...and am reading them now (spurred on by Grant Morrison's awesome Final Crisis miniseries. He's showing mad love for the characters, the NG mythos and Kirby).

I'm really getting into the 4th World. It was soooo imaginative and "out there" for it's time.

I said this in another thread...buy I want a Dr. Impossible (Mr. Miracle repaint)!

Other most wanted New Gods are:

Mokari
Simyan
Dessad
Glorious Godfrey
Grannie Goodness
Sonny Sumo
Infinity Man
Metron

Top 5 would be Kanto, Highfather, Dessad, Granny Goodness, and Bikini Barda. But I'm just happy with Forager. :D

I still find it funny that Mattel and DCD claim to be "working closely together to not duplicate characters" when they have now made all the same 4th world characters except for Metron (and I bet he'll be either a web exclusive or a BAF). I would probably have bought the DCD New Gods, but (as I prefer DCUC and I don't like to have more then one version of most characters) I passed.

You forgot the Forever People (sorry, don't know the individual names right off the top of my head) but they were seen briefly at the end of "Twilight".
