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".


I forgot they showed up in that episode, but I almost included them as New Gods to make that weren't on the show...then I decided I don't have as much interest in them as I do for the other ones I put on the list. I like Kirby's crazy/cosmic/wonky characters, but some hold up better than others and I put the Forever People in the don't-hold-up-all-that-well category.

I'd love JLU releases of the Forever people. Regarding characters who showed up.... If I am not mistaken Black Racer is viewable in a brief frame somewhere.

For me, here are my top 5 :

Granny Goodness
Metron
Kalibak
Steppenwolf
DeSaad

There are a few others I'd love to see, but those are at the top of my list.

I think the idea of making a big body that Granny Goodness and Amanda Waller could both use is fantastic (mentioned in another thread on DCUC about the bigger female bodies). Ed Asner was so good as Goodness... I'm not big into the 4th World, but she'd be cool to get. Parademons are sweet too.

I think both DCUC and JLU would benefit from a Parademon figure.

Beyond that, I think anything else we get would be kind of 'gravy', but I'd definitely buy them for either line.

(Heck, I want ALL of the Super Powers New Gods in both sets!)

Agreed, although for the JLU line I think Kalibak and Metron (and parademons) play big enough roles in the JLU show that if we use the show as a gauge for importance, then those three are meat and potatoes and the rest are the gravy.

Forgot about the Parademons! For me, I want a 4 pack. They could make them slightly different, maybe different heads or something, and have maybe different weapons. Be a good way to get the army builder concept in there while keeping costs low. ;)

A 3-pack of Parademons with Steppenwolf would be cool.

A 4-pack with Granny Goodness, Kalibak, Desaad and Vermin Vundavarr.

A 6-pack with the Forever People and the Infinite Man.

Vermin Vundabar
Kanto
Steppenwolf

AHhhh what a great thread. I do LOVE the 4th world.

Is this a crazy thought.. the smaller male torso with an overlay (a'la Shade or Giganta's dress) that has all of the ... um... female necessities for Granny Goodness!? you can use regular arms and legs then and a new head sculpt?!

In any event... here goees me:

1. Granny
2. Kalibak
3. Desaad
4. Metron
5. Steppenwolf

Dont get me wrong I love Mantis, and Lashina... but how did we get them over these big guns?!

I mentioned this a loooonng time ago in another thread. I was just thinking though that maybe they could create a new larger female body/base minus breast/chest which could be added on each figure later as an overlay like you said, as well the overlay could have costume details which would match the particular female. So it could be used for Granny, Waller, Stompa, and Rampage. Going by memory, Granny's chest seemed to be broad and both breast seemed to come together as one larger mass. I thought Stompa was about the same. Waller would be different because she was wearing a business suit that wasn't so skin-tight. It it seemed like Rampage was "rounder". But again each chest would be a different overlay on the same base. This way they could possibly get 4 different figures out of the same general base. Just a thought.


My top 5 New Gods:

1 Kalibak
2 Desaad
3 Granny Goodness
4 Highfather
5 Steppenwolf
