Man, I hope it's Penguin, so I can safely ignore it.

Larfleeze would suck, but as long as they have it on the website later, I guess it wouldn't be a problem.

Larfleeze I can see happening for the simple fact that Glomulus could be the next Gleek; and basically... that's the kind of pool Mattel normally plays.

And if the leaked Young Justice pictures with the "Invasion" carding are any indication, there's plenty of stuff that got to the "ready for retail" stage, but didn't get ordered. Besides, last year we got Superboy a month or so before retail saw any action; so it's possible that they had something in the works for this year, too.

If they do that with Glomulus then I would be pissed.

The exclusives were being planned long before the rug got pulled out on All Stars. I wouldn't worry about Larfleeze being an exclusive.

I know that I am going to get the DCUC exclusive, the MOTUC exclusive, a YJ exclusive (if they have one), the HISS tank from Hasbro, and the Jinx figure from Hasbro. I am going to keep up on the lines (exclusives) I have gotten in the past but I doubt there is going to be anything "new" that is going to make me want to jump on and get it.

I might be eating those words later on but for now I am going to believe that I will stick to my guns.

I don't think there will be a DCUC exclusive.

Might not be DCUC, but could be something rebranded... If they are having 3 DC Exclusives, one for a Batman TDKR line, what would the other two be? Not JLU or YJ...

Agreed. It's definitely going to be something in the 4H DC style. I don't care how they brand it - if it fits in with what we already have, they can call it whatever they want. Just gimme.

This. And hurry up with the reveals already! :P

Could be another DC Polly Pocket set or maybe something related to Action League. I'm sure that one of the remaining two will be DCUC compatible and the other could still be YJ related as it would've been too late to replace it with something else when the line "ended".

YJ Super Cycle with Wolf?!?!?

That'd be cool but totally out of left field.

I'd love to see a new Polly Pocket set, but if it were DC it would almost have to be "New 52" wouldn't it? Although a "classic" Birds of Prey Polly Pocket set would make for a nice box and addition to the already released figures....

Action League has so many possibilities. A nice box or "team" set would be amazing.

For something DCUC-ish ... It would almost have to be a "set" of figures ala the Wonder Twins. I can't think of any single figure in the DCUC that would have enough demand or visual appeal that would work well in an exclusive format that won't be already targetted for the sub. So, if it is a "set" maybe it would be those "Super Powers" repaints we've been waiting for. But then what would the "polybagged Con-only" piece be?
Not really sure what I would want this set to be even though it is potentially the one I am most excited for...

Dark Knight movie ... meh, its an easy pass for me.

I don't really want a Young Justice exclusive, unless that deal finishes off the main young heroes and the adult league....at least the teams we have at this point. Anything else would just be a tease.

For a 6 in. DC figure, the only thing I could think of that would be a big hit would be a 90's JLA set. Classic Kyle, Hook Hand Aquaman, Zauriel to name a few.

Zauriel v Azmodel box set would be intensely awesome!

I'm at the point where no other toy news matters right now. LOL. Tell us the exclusives already!

I'm willing to bet the DCUC-esque exclusive has something to do with the new 52. If they are thinking of doing all the new 52 costumes for the new line, that would compliment DCUC well (in their eyes)

I'd be really surprised if they had anything like that ready at this point. They barely got Batman and Superman done and everything else is pushed back to 2013.
