Just saw Dan's teaser on the front page. Wonder what the two lines could be.... hmm...

Beware the Batman is probably one.

Maybe a return of a 3.75 line?

Ah hadn't thought about that - good call Shell. Be surprised if they didn't do some tie-in to Beware.

And 3.75? Maybe, but it just seems so odd that they'd try again after all this time...

I just hope the Classics line survives in some way or another.

Some collectors really want Mattel to go back to a 3.75" line similar to DC Infinite Heroes. There are plenty more DC characters that have yet to be made in this scale.

Back to the DCUC lines at retail. Do you think that the 2 new lines are just DC Comics Unlimited and Batman Unlimited rebranded?

My big problem with this is the Marvel figures now hitting 10 bucks for those 3.75 inch figures.
I just can't justify spending 10 bucks on something like that.

Batzarro is a load of crap.

I'm shocked we're getting Ocean Master before Mera. :shock:

Putting Ice in the 2014 sub is a bit of a dick move, though.

However, they lead with their strongest enticement: Doomsday. Outside of Granny Goodness, I can't think of a better sub exclusive figure to get people to buy in.

I kinda like Batzarro from a visual perspective in the comics (probably was intended for the ill-fated Batman Unlimited line).

I bet Superboy will pretty much be the YJ version.

Superboy may be the prototype one that's been hyped on other boards, comic look.

I have always wanted Batzarro BUT feel he could have done well at Retail same with Ras Al Ghul. On the other hand the second half of 2013 is a great year for me ! Finally a few more keepers ! Will be selling or trading ocean Master but should be a lot easier then my Uncle Sam and John Constantine ! Man got to say I am pleasantly surprised with Mattels offerings !

How dare you sell the Master of the Oceans! You better hope you live in a landlocked state!

There are better pics are Toy News International, and yes, its not the same buck as YJ. He looks pretty good and beefier than his cartoon counterpart.

Kinda surprised we didn't get Vixen, though.

The front page has the club exclusives reversed. Tier 1 is Doomsday in the containment suit, Tier 2 is 'Doomsday Unleashed'.

I didn't see anything here that lit a fire under me to order the sub for next year. And Batzarro is a waste of a slot when they could've put Ice in there to make sure she gets out there. Stunned there's no Mera.

Any Flash- or Titans-related characters that show up I'll get day-of-sale, but otherwise I'm out.

Ugh, Batzarro?? Really??

He should have been in the Batman Unlimited retail line instead of wasting a sub slot. I'm. happy about Doomsday but disappointed in not seeing Mera, Phantom Lady, or Vixen. Or more Flash rogues. :(

Okay, I look at the list that's been presented, and the only loser I see on it is Batzarro (they must really want to get a second use out of the Bizarro body). Heck of a way to wrap up 2013, if you ask me.

However, Ocean Master is definitely welcome, as is Ra's Al Ghul.

But I really, really hope that the 2014 Subscription goes ahead, because I certainly want ice to go with Fire, a Superboy in his T-shirt and Jeans would be most welcome over the original version when he was still acting like a little punk, and a 90's style Aquaman is well overdue.

I look forward to an explanation of these "Tiers" regarding the Doomsday figure. An "Unleashed" version I would welcome. One all bundled up in his "prison uniform" -- meh.
