See now this is what they should've done with Riddler. He has never been a big guy and the suited figure of him is just bad.

I just hope they don't use the Jack Knight Starman buck for T-shirt Superboy, as it would be too big, but they could use it for DCnU T-shirt Superman.

But I agree with Jim, they really need to step back and fully consider what buck peices they have, what ones they need, and use them appropriately to make figures accurate.

I mean they need to look at the long game, if they had done a bit of retooling to the Etrigan buck, we could've had a much better Bane and Lobo.

2 Superman characters
1 Wonder Woman character
1 Green Lantern character
1 Aquaman character
1 JSA character
1 "team completer" (Metal Men/Doom Patrol for example)
1 Legion of Superheroes character
1 New God/Kirby-based character

I would also have ratios in place such as:

At least three characters in Golden Age costumes
At least three characters in Silver Age costumes
How would you make it work for everyone?

Thats the problem- it will never work for everyone-there are just too many characters and too many diverse interestas..- THat list above is everything I wont buy (unless the team completer is Suicide Squad or Secret Six)-- - since that would be 9/16 meaning more than 50% that I dont want-- (and in trying to sell thunder punch he Man-- I dont think I really want to try and sell all the figures I dont want-- I will just pay the couple extra dollars and buy the figures I do want- and if the line ends so be it-and that is exactly why I didnt get a sub this year the not wants well exceeded the wants- because unless they can guarantee me a Spoiler-- I really could care less about it, if the line ends- so be it.., Ill just continue to pick those characters I do want..

Certainly, no list will ever fit everyone - that's kind of the point of the thread.

If your wants or interests are very specific, then there's a much lower chance of them coming up with a formula that will work for you. Personally, I'd prefer no Batman or Superman characters and just have costumes from the last 20 years, but I know that wouldn't sell to guys like Superfly, or Batman fans.

Give it a go - don't name any specific figures, just a breakdown of what split would make a sub that you would buy, as well as selling to the majority year after year. I found it quite fun, if nothing else :)

Getting a bit sick of some of the arguing in the other sub threads

This floored me when I saw this cause I made the same damn face when I read the quote. There's 75 years of stuff to be made in plastic. To quote Queen, "I want it all, and I want it now."

I want a mix of all aspects of the DCU. There should always be a representation of obscure characters like Amethyst and characters who were unlikely at retail for various reasons (Constantine, Death, Dream, Captain Carrot, Amanda Waller, etc....)
