I thought about picking up the JLA vs Starro box set. I will probably pick one up before the end of the year. From the pictures I have seen of the set, it does not look too bad.

Of the DC Infinite Heroes figures, I like the more muscular V1 bodies than the later versions.

Who here would like to see the current 4 Horsemen DC designs shrunk down to 4" scale? The larger line reused common parts whenever possible, and they could do the same for the smaller line. I would buy them.

Mattel would have to make sure that they market them correctly. Wave 1 should consist of 4 3-packs of figures giving us at least 12 figures per wave. No more launching 4 single figures and bombing at retail.

The Voltron pilots are actually very well done, in my opinion.

Joe, that's been my wish since DCIH started. I say wish cuz at the time I felt DCIH would go on forever, and likely it won't happen. But now that it's gone.

I definitely would like to see the current 4 Horsemen DC designs shrunk to a 4" scale! That would be fantastic! I agree about the 12 figures per wave also. :mrgreen:

I have and do like the Voltron pilots, but I wish I did not have to have a subscription to get 3.75" figures like this from Mattel. They are great looking though. Hopefully I can look forward to Voltron Force toys. I would really like a Voltron Force Voltron in the same scale as the 24" classic!

I agree. One of the most foolish " action " features that I've seen in awhile. Maybe the kids like it, though.

This is a great idea.

Y'all are mean. Stop making me think of 3 3/4 inch dc figures done right. That's the line I want. I love DCUC, don't get me wrong. But do you realize how big a display case I'd have to build to design it the way I could in smaller scale? I'd be single in a second if I built that huge a case.
