These are the versions of characters that I want to see made in the DC classics/Sub/Unlimited lines...

There obviously more but for me this would be what I consider the obvious gaps.

Image
Balent/knightfall Catwoman

Image
Classic Ivy with white skin

Image
Talia Al Ghul

Image
Image
Image
Huntress, all three if possible.

Image
Spoiler

Image
Original costume Tim Drake (new sculpt ON SMALL TEEN BODY, NOT THE LEGION MALE BUCK)

Image
Golden Age Robin on small teen buck

Image
Perez Nightwing on Legion teen buck.

Image
Knightfall Nightwing on slim adult buck

Image
Connor green Arrow on Legion teen buck

Image
Hook Aquaman

Image
Classic costume Kyle GL

Image
Hal Parralax

Image
Classic Ventriloquist and Scarface

Image
Ra's Al Ghul

Image
Mad Hatter

Like I say, there are obviously more that are needed to fill out the ranks, but as a Batman fan this is what I feel is missing the most. But Mattel NEED to start using the correct size bucks for characters. There was no excuse for Red Robin being made on the adult buck other than for their own convenience. The life of the lines is no longer a sure thing so we can't risk them getting a do-over like Sinestro, figures need to be accurate first time from now on!

Red Robin is accurate.

For Kingdom Come.

Your list is entirely too Batman heavy for my interest.

Its not that I don't want all those figures as well, but if that is the only "family" they are offering I'm gonna be one very unhappy customer.

Not for me; I'd buy every single one of those. Although I differ on which buck I'd use for Tim Drake. I'd use the larger teen buck. Instead of the smaller one.

I forgot how great that DCD Hush Huntress was. Doubtful Mattel can beat that one!

See now I want Tim on the smaller buck because that's a more accurate size for him in that outfit. The older teen buck is what should've been used for his One Year Later red outfit and for him as Red Robin. And I know we need an Alfred, new Scarecrow and a better Croc. And there are other non bat family characters that are just as needed but as Batman is the bigger seller these are the ones I feel have the best chance of happening.

Well that is except for the fact that she cant stand (without a ton of sticky Tack) and the fact that her arms actually fall off at the joints-- otherwise shes great

Batman Subscription. I'm calling it right now. All the Batman characters through the decades they're too scared to do at retail. Monsters, females, butlers, Jim Balent Catwoman. Call it "Gotham Knights" or something like that or something. let's just stop wasting time and do it already. I know we're getting lots of Batman stuff at retail, but c'mon, we need Red Hood, we need Spoiler, Croc, Mad Hatter.

This! I think that there are easily enough batman fans out there to keep a sub going for at least a year if they did one. It would be the ideal place for his rogues gallery and bat family characters not considered strong enough for retail. There could still be batman figures in the other lines, just more mass appeal versions.

I bet Bat woman's not out because they don't want to stir up a hornet's nest.

Tonight on Fox News, why is Mattel pushing the lesbian lifestyle on America's helpless, innocent children?

:lol:
