This is just sort of for fun. I've been impressed with the DCUC-style of action figures since they came out, and continue to be. There's no shortage of pop-culture super-hero characters that I would like to see in this excellent format, even though I know that Galactus turning out to be real and attacking the Earth is somewhat more likely. But I thought it would make for an interesting discussion thread.

THE PHANTOM - I've long been a fan of this guy. I even liked that movie back in the mid-90's. Unfortunately, he hasn't fared that well in the action figure world. He had a Captain Action costume, this weird little thing around the time of the movie that had a head that was roughly the shape of a light bulb, and a few others here and there. I'd love to see a DCUC-style action figure.

SPACE GHOST - Another cool character. I am NOT impressed with the recent release from JazWares. I saw one in the store and a leg was already broken off. Unfortunately, this company is notorious for toys that seem prone to self-destruct. The only line they've ever produced that had a decent amount of quality to it has been Sonic the Hedgehog...

BLUE FALCON - Hey, why not?

And for the really impossible...

Imagine Mattel and Hasbro getting together to do two commemorative editions within DC Universe Classics and Marvel Universe celebrating the JLA/Avengers crossover. We'd get DCUC-style figures of Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, Vision, and a couple of others (heck, throw in Wolverine and Spider-Man just for the heck of it even though they weren't in the book), and Marvel Universe-style figures, for those that collect them, of Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, Flash, etc.

Not putting down Hasbro's Marvel Legends. They've got some cool figures. But they're not entirely compatible with DC Universe Classics (although the Hydra agents from a few years ago are about the right size). Just saying, it'd be cool to see figures that were designed along entirely the same lines.

The Doctor... I would love all 11 Doctors done in 6" DCUC style. I would be in Heaven!

I'm not a huge Sandman fan but I'd like to see the Endless done in DCUC style as well as some other Vertigo characters from Lucifer and Books Of Magic and stuff like that. I'd buy them.

This is more of a Movie Masters thing, not DCUC, But I'd love to see all the characters from the first four Batman and Superman movies. I'd buy every character in a heartbeat. Not to mention some "TV Show Masters", stuff like a Lynda Carter Wonder Woman, Lou Ferrigno Hulk, etc. Maybe Lois and Clark. I'd buy all that. I have good memories from those shows even though they're dated.

The missed opportunity still stings.

Wendy, Marvin, and Wonder Dog. :)

Oh wait... ones we would LIKE to see? Well nevermind then.

I want accurately sculpted/painted Super Powers versions of Mr. Freeze, Orion, Kalibak, Captain Marvel, Superman, Wonder Woman, and Batman. We know half of those were prototyped, but it seems very unlikely we'll ever get them now. :(

I'm one of the few that actually doesn't mind Kid Flash's scale.

We just needed the rest of the Silver Age Titans in the same scale.

Sadly I doubt we'll see many of the Titans from the Titans West (Golden Eagle, Flamebird etc), Titans Hunt (Pantha, Phantasm, Red Star), Teen Titans (Risk, Prysm, Hotspot, Argent, Omen). Some of these figures would be great in figure form.

The Legends figures are pretty good, but I can see the desire for uniformity.
