I got emails saying that every figure I had pre-ordered was canceled, other than Red Robin, Superman, Superboy-Prime, and Batman.

I'm sure the bigger ones - the Flash, Larfleeze, Hawkman - will be offered down the road. They're just shuffling around the lineups - and it's for the better.

yeah Im waiting for people to freak out that the line is already going to get canceled. lol :roll:


The issue is Mattel either by their own fault or by DC/WB's fault have made this switch from DCUC to DCUAS a big mess, when we saw the first AS line up, we all went WTF? It looked nothing like an A and B line up, more C, D and Zs(looking at you FP Plastic)

I think from here on out we will see more of the "mom and Kid" friendly retail line, we have been told AS would be.

Which is just fine by me, as long as I have my DC sub for the lesser known figures and I can pick and choose my A and B figures from retail I will be happy

Agreed. In fact I just noticed that we weren't getting the corps version of superboy prime.

I wonder if in fact this is why the DCUC line ended. Not enough Superman / batman versions / related characters. When the line started, we had a Batman or Superman and or family member in each wave:

1.Batman
2.Superman and Harley
3.Nightwing and Robin
4.Batman Beyond
5.Eradicator (looks like Superman) and Riddler
6.Superman and Superman variant

I know Mattel went to all stars, and that there were Batman characters in waves 10, 15, 16, but maybe they were not enough to keep sales where they needed to be. Maybe we needed those SuperFriends colored Batman and Superman in the main line to keep sales going?

I am pretty confident that with the tooling investment for Larfleeze, we will get him. It might be in the sub, but we will get him. As for Plastic Man, everyone thought that version of Plastic Man was a strange choice for a figure, no loss there.

While I will be getting a figure here and there from the new retail line, there's not a single one they've shown that I'm head over heels about. This new change doesn't bother me at all.

This line-up is a LOT stronger.

So I guess wave 2 might be Batman Beyond and Dark Supergirl to keep the Super/Bat presence and a couple of heavy hitters like New 52 Flash and Green Lantern? Or maybe Larfleeze and Green Lantern to have a bit of a theme?

Lord knows what they'll do with Flashpoint Platic Man. Can't imagine it needed any new tooling anyway.

If this happens, and I wouldn't doubt it, I bet a lot of Club Infinite Earths subscribers will be in a tizzy about Flashpoint Plastic Man being heaped upon them. Even Larfleeze wouldn't want him. :)

They'll probably stick FP Plastic Man in the subscription hahaha. I can hear the nerd rage boiling over now.

Larfleeze ends up in the sub.


If FP Plastic man does as well, guess who won't be renewing the sub for next year (although I don't think it's likely at all he ends up in the sub)

You should check out the forums at The Fwoosh. "The Sky is Falling" is already in full effect.
