... and the reasoning behind my choices:

Liberty Belle: JSA member (the only remaining "important" female to do with limited tooling)

Weather Wizard: Flash rouge, minimal tooling. Would much rather have Heatwave or Trickster, but this seems like an easier execution

Phantom Lady: Again, pairs with Uncle Sam. Not sure which costume they will put out, but it would most likely be the more modern version that could utilize the existing female "uniboob" buck ... remember Starfire? :wink: )

Crimson Avenger: This one is my far-fetched wish. I could see them doing the more traditional Spandex, fin headed costume as that would require only a new head on an existing buck. It fits with the All-Star Squadron and Seven Soldiers so bolsters, essentially, two already started teams

Mera: really, now is the time

Kid Eternity: Again, a bit of a stretch. But I suspect we will get another "vertigo" character in this years sub. He should be relatively easy to pull off with mostly existing parts. I would much rather see Shade the Changing Man, but expect that would need an "oversized" slot (which we don't have this year) to accomodate some "snap-on" construct bits.

Huntress: Again, we're getting her. I can just feel it. And they are saving the "big reveal" for last. Again, I can just feel it. And, yes, she would be a good fit for retail, but I know Scott would like to get credit for this one as a thank you to the fans for keeping things going. Right, Scott? :wink:


They have stated that we are getting females, and I think 4 out of 12 is a Grand mix. Its probably more likely we'll only get 3 or 2, but a guy can dream, right?

Feel free to dispute or discuss.....

Has Phantom Lady been leaked or something? She's awfully popular all of a sudden on these guess-lists. Not that I'd mind at all. She's in my top 10 most wanted. Just curious is all.

Uncle Sam and Dollman are in 2012's sub.

They're all about completing teams.

1 + 1 = Phantom Lady.

I'll play along-


6. Vixen (June)
7. Psycho Pirate (July)
8. Fire (Aug)
9. The Ray (Sept)
10. Talia(Oct)
11.Geo-Force(Nov)
12. Dawnstar (Dec)

This list differs from the list I put up as my following 7 on mattycollector.com only slightly, I am picking four females because we are supposedly getting a few next year, I do think we will see Vixen first, Fire would be perfect for an August release and I do think we will see a female Legionnaire and a female villain next year as well. I chose the Ray because I think PL is a litttle too obvious and could be saved for 2014, Psycho Pirate fits the JSA/Villain slot and Geo-Force would be another universe/team builder.

This is not the list I want but what I think we will get...

6. Vixen (June) - she was on the cardback and was in the first poll
7. Heat Wave (July) - they're giving us Wally, gotta have a Flash villain, it's either him or Weather Wiz
8. Geo Force (Aug) - easy to do, starts the Outsiders and was in the 2nd poll
9. Aqualad (Sept) - easy to do, they've ignored Titans for a long time and I can't believe he's not done
10. Phobia (Oct) - this one's my weakest guess but they made Mallah & the Brain and would team build
11.Phantom Lady (Nov) - Freedom Fighters and was a winner on many polls
12. Monel (Dec) - Legion figure that I think they've wanted to make for a long time

Boots

I'm sure they will save Huntress now as a draw for 2014 and bet they will show her along with Superboy (T-shirt) or Cap Marvel Jr. and maybe Mera also with hook hand Aquaman or Ocean Master

Wow, it's hard to pick what you think could logically end up in the sub over what you would to prefer be in the sub. That said, I think most of my picks could be made with minimal new tooling, which is most likely what we'll be getting.

Psycho Pirate - Villain
Phantom Lady - Freedom Fighters
Aqualad - Teen Titans
Dream Girl - Legion of Superheroes
Chronos - Villain
Trickster - Flash Rogue
Queen Bee - JLA Villain

Lots of plain bucks with new heads and a few different add-ons like capes. There's also villains, females, and team builders in my list, which are all needed for this line. Maybe we could get some pack-ins like Quislet or Shrinking Violet with Dream Girl, or Doll Girl with Phantom Lady.

There's been some nice guesses so far.

A few that have caught me off guard, a few that seem like such no-brainers, and a few that I wish I would've thought to pick.

Can't wait to see how this all shakes out...

Here... surrounded by Giganta, Steppenwolf, Deadman and Question.

Vixen, Crispus Allen Spectre and Ryan Choi Atom (I think) are the only ones from that package (at least in one form or another, maybe not the exact costume) that still haven't seen plastic. And out of those three Vixen is the only one that didn't have a predecessor in plastic.

Okay, Ryan... what if someone gets all or the most characters right but they aren't matched up to the proper months?

(BTW, I meant to put this with my list... If, by some chance, I end up with the most right I consider myself disqualified as staff so it would go down to the next person -- I'm only posting for fun)
