Let's have some fun here and give Mattel some options for the Club IE exclusive for 2013.

I'll start with mine and it came from a discussion over on itsalltrue.net. Noisy and I were discussing Wally Flash and he was saying that he'd love to see him but they better dress him up which brought me to this idea. For the 2013 Club IE exclusive figure, how about Wally as Flash with the Cosmic Treadmill? I think Wally is one of the biggest missing figures so far and the treadmill could go with any of our speedsters.

Anyway, let me know what you think about that idea and give us your own!

Since they put out that horribly small DCSH Doomsday, I've been wanting one.

They said no to him in 2012 because of tooling costs. Seeing how well they did with Metron, I'd love to finally have me a good Doomsday figure.

But that's just my .02.

My guy reaction was Doomsday, but I actually live both those ideas! We do need a proper Wally, and I'd be cool if he were included , either way! The treadmill idea is cool, and I'm sure the a horsemen could do an outstanding job. I wonder if they'll approach it like they did with MOTUC in 2012, making a long-desired character th club exclusive, to help drive subscriptions. Many collectors (not me!) mike look at Wally as "just another Flash".
Just my 2 cents, I totally support both ideas, and will subscribe in 2013 either way.

Normally I would be fine with Wally and a Cosmic Treadmill. BUT. I already have the treadmill from the DC Direct line and it's a great representation of it. I do need Wally in flash gear but don't want to use him for that slot.

I would really like to see an Anti Monitor that is the same size as the Marvel Universe Masterworks Galactus and Sentinel.

Or even a proper sized Doomsday.

No wait. How about a Hector Hammond.

Doomsday is a good choice as well. Like I said, the Wally idea came to me because I didn't want people to see him as a wasted slot or another Flash and it's pretty much the only way Mattel is going to give us a treadmill.

Kid, could you post a pic of the DC Direct treadmill? I've never seen it.

Wally and the treadmill would be a great idea for me.

Personally, I think a large accessory with a figure is a better way to distinguish the sub exclusive from the quarterly over-sized figures.

I have no use for a treadmill, but any way to get Wally is fine by me.

But the question then becomes, which Wally? White eyes? Exposed eyes? Red? Candy apple red? Maroon? Bright yellow? Gold? Someone's gonna get left out. I vote for a shiny candy apple red and white eyes, to further differentiate from Barry.

If they went this route it would be their ultimate cheap out. They would just reuse everything from Plastic Man.

I do want an Elongated Man but I would hope they give us some different stuff if they did him this way.

The treadmill would be cool with Wally. I'd almost rather get him that way. But I'm not as huge a Wally fan as some of you guys.

I do want more Flash Rogues.

That's a fair assessment too. Doomsday can be done if we see the sales support it. I just want a bigger Doomsday!


I don't know what else I'd want for the club exclusive...possibly a Kyle Rayner in his old costume with some of the coolest lantern projections we've seen (gatlin gun, or a ring vehicle projection, etc).

I have a hard time really thinking of a normal figure with some accessory that I want. Might have to sleep on it.

If they wanted to be true to Elongated Man's character, they wouldn't just re-use all the Plastic Man parts.

Plas keeps morphing into new shapes and is a "master of disguise". Ralph more or less just stretched all his limbs. Especially his neck and nose (which he would waggle when he "smelled a mystery").

When they finally get around to offering us a Ralph figure, I would hope it comes with limb and neck extensions to help recreate that effect and, although I am sure I am the only one who would want this, a soft rubber "nose" that could be stretched and wiggled to recreate his reaction to a mystery.

In the spirit of the thread ...

*Shining Knight and Winged Victory!

*Rip Hunter and Time Bubble (although that is so obscure it wouldn't entice anyone to sign up).

*Stanley and his Monster (c'mon old-timers. You know you want this set :wink: )

*Cain and Abel 2pack (what a great launching point for Vertigo figures as well as obscure Classic reference ...)

*Granny Goodness! (really, why has no one else said this yet?)

Ohhh Shining Knight with Winged Victory is a good one too. I'd have to get a new Vigilante then too.
