Ch 120 cable The HUB, still plays BATMAN BEYOND & BATMAN the animated series.

What if Mattel took the JLU Batman Beyond molds they already made and added
more characters to make a new BB line, with new packaging? Half the work is
already done to start the first 2 waves. I mean thanks to the HUB, the exposure
is already there.

NEW possibles:
Transparent cloaked Batman
Terry McGinnis (civilian clothes)
Ace the dog
Barda
Green Lantern (Kai Ro)
Blight
Inque
Shriek
Spellbinder
Curare
Stalker
Big Time
King RFG
Queen RFG
Jack RFG
Ten RFG
Ace RFG
DEE DEE's 2-pack
Joker Beyond
Ghoul
Woof
Bonk
Chucko
Mad Stan
Cobra
Zeta
Max Gibson
Commissioner Gordon (Barbra)
the Terrific Trio

OLD JLU to mix in:
Batman
old Bruce
Warhawk
Superman
Aquagirl
Static
Micron

Its a beautiful wish list.

But I can't get myself excited about it because the reality is ...
it won't happen.

I'd buy the figures, but it won't happen.

Seconded. You had me excited that there was a new line by your title and then I realized it was just another wish list :? Don't get me or bnj wrong. Seems both of us would love this line, but I doubt we'll ever see anything outside of peoples customs.

Id like it as well--

But part of it makes me wonder (since Hasbro does own the hub network)-- wouldnt they kill the show it the minute Mattel even considered this..

Not if they got together on this.

Heck, the HUB already make tons of their cartoons into toylines.

Right.

But again ... the Hub is owned by HASBRO and the current holder of the DC licenses (including BTAS and Batman Beyond) is MATTEL.

I will state with pure conviction on this one ... you will NEVER see Hasbro produce toys for Mattel and vice versa. It just won't happen.

To be frank, I'm surprised the Hub is even airing those shows. CN or Boomerang, sure, but the Hub is a bit of a shock to me.

It's fun to imagine them doing this, and we all get a kick out of imagining our wish lists...

It would still make more money than JLU presently does, because of the HUB exposure.

Isn't Mattel losing the rights to DC anyway?
Maybe Hasbro can buy the rights and the molds, if Mattel is giving up on JLU anyway.
This way Mattel can recoup their investment losses in JLU that they said they had.

The Hub is only half owned by Hasbro, Discovery owns the other half, and they are a network like any other. They can air, promote and advertise anyone's shows/properties.

What makes you think that? I mean, it makes perfect sense, since Mattel is working on new retail lines for DC and Batman at retail, trying to get DC and Watchmen figures to sell online all through 2013, and working on a Man of Steel and '66 Batman toys.

They just reupped the license last year.

And if another company would get the rights to DC one day, they would pay DC for them - not Mattel. Mattel wouldn't make one red cent off of it to help cushion the losses they incurred from JLU.

I agree with the rest-- but if Mattel chose to sell off the molds to Hasbro they could get some ROI.
