Mattel has hinted that DCUC box sets are a possibility but no information was given. So I was thinking what would appeal to me, and this is what I came up with:

Price point: $40.00 to $50.00
Store: Target (I think Toys-R-Us is going the way of Kay-Bee Toys)
Figures: 4

Batman (Crime Stopper Batman without the black on his cowl)
Batgirl (Barbara repainted black and yellow)
Two-Face (repainted in his silver age/bronze age colors)
The Riddler (in tights and headsculpt without hat)

Extras: a base and maybe a cardboard backdrop of Gotham City or Arkham
Also 2 batarangs for the Bats, two .22 calibur hand guns for Two-Face and some kind of question mark weapon for the Riddler
Lastly, a mini character pack-in like Bat-Mite or Ace the Bathound

I'd be interested in other people's ideas.

Story specific sets could be an idea too, like this...

Knightfall set:
Azbats first costume (blue)
Azbats second costume (red)
New Bane (added articulation, maybe use the Etrigan torso?)
Batman or Catwoman (Jim Balent purple costume)

Death of Superman set:
Superman (battle damage costume)
New Doomsday (Larger)
Eradicator (W/ clear goggles and for those who couldn't find him at Walmart)
Superboy (Leather Jacket Version)

Teen Titans

Beast Boy (just about any male body with new head)

Tempest (same with new head)

Donna Troy (Wonder woman with some modifications)

Raven (this one with be tough, but doable)

Accessories: a couple green animals for BB, red and blue plastic energy "blasts" for Garth, nothing for Donna (or extra animal for BB), and changablee Trigon head for Raven.

How cool with that be? 8) 8) 8)

Maybe have a second pack with Speedy, Aqualad, classic Wonder Girl and classic Robin (so Kid Flash won't be lonely). :wink:


Then we'd have almost all the main Titans.

How about some GL love in this thread? Here's a pack I'd like to see that would still save the big names for single packs.

- GL Sodom Yat
- GL Soranik Natu
- GL Vath Sarn
- Sinestro Corps. Amon Sur

Gotta pack-in Dex-Star (Rage Kitty), too.

I'd love to see a Secret Six pack.

Catman
Deadshot
Ragdoll
Scandal Savage

If Mattel wanted to make it a proper 6-pack, they could include Cheshire and Knockout.

I like this idea - story-related box sets. SO many possibilities of great new and repaint figures...

Green Lantern Kyle (modern,newest)

Blue Lantern Warth

Red Lantern Laira

Yellow Lantern Arkillo

Orange Lantern Agent Orange

Now that there are so many Lanterns besides Green ones and so many crazy wild aliens in them, what a great time to make some toys, huh? I mean crazy aliens in bold colored uniforms - tell me those wont sell? And not just to GL freaks like me, this could sell to kids.

Laira is dead. Atrocitus is the leader / main Red Lantern for now. i think they (like Dc Direct) would make him first. Although Red Lantern Vice is getting some good page time in the GLCorps book right now.

And we need a Star Sapphire too.

Either of:
1. The ring forcing the blood out of their system and replacing it with red lantern energy.
2. A manifestation of said red lantern energy.
