Given our leap of faith 2 years in a row I kind of hope they make an exception when it comes to Granny Goodness BNJ :|

Granny'd be a nice SDCC 13 exclusive, especially if one of the revealed 2014 DCUC sub figures at the show was a Fury.

Oh, right. That's what I meant. I believe that a 100% new tool figure really should be in the cards no matter what Matty thinks about it.

If you think about it... it couldn't kill them to make a new tooled figure which they could use over again. Maybe a new design that could be reused on multiple figures throughout the subscription. There's still seven figures to see, it's possible. One new tooled figure could go a long way with buyers of the subscription.

I'm amazed that they seem to be balking at the idea of sculpting a wheelchair when we know it can be used twice for Chief and Oracle, both of which are high on fan's wishlists. ANY opportunity to sculpt something that has re-use value should strongly be considered.

Also, are they still refusing to repaint the winged horse in the She-Ra line to release with Shining Knight simply because it's in the MOTUC line and can't be used for another toy line? They broke that rule with some smaller accessories, so they are foolish for refusing to re-use that unique sculpt and make more money off it in a deluxe Shining Knight/Winged Victory set.

A wheelchair for two figures is probably not worth it.

I don't know that they're refusing, but I've got Swift Wind and it may just be that he's too big to use in the DC line. I need to get a pic of Copperhead on him for comparison but I think he'd dwarf any Shining Knight made with existing parts.

That's odd. The MOTUC figures are supposed to be the same scale. So wouldn't he be way too big for She-Ra too?

The average MOTUC figures are actually bigger than the average DCUCs.

I don't think it'd be a big deal, myself, but the two lines certainly aren't completely interchangeable.

They're the same scale much the same way DCUC and Movie Masters are the same scale.

man ... the amount of Aquanet dispersed into the air in the hallway of my high school alone had to have put a hole in the ozone layer the size of Delaware...
