Is this the first time a brand new Batman show isn't getting toy support? :shock:


Staic Shock
Teen Titans
Legion of superheroes
half assed attempt at Brave and the Bold.
dead on arrival Young Justice due to price point.
Zero support for GL animated because retail was glutted with an over priced/overproduced movie crud...
hardly any coherent strategy or synergized marketing with the DTVs.

New batman cartoon doesn't even have familiar villains! Besides, Mattel is in love with the neon green batman line so why bother?

I wish I could see a comparison of these figures along with the current 6" Batman evergreen figures. They seem kind of close in style.


These look more round and have more articulation, the other is more "anime" sharp and has action features. I fail to see why these would share shelf space with the BatB style Target exclusive and the New52 DC unlimited. it is quite redundant.

You gotta appreciate that suggested price though. $9.99. That's like some good-ol fashioned 2004 prices. There seems to be a whole new mission on pricing for action figures. Offering lower prices but with less bells and whistles and articulation. More back-to-basics.


yes, that is true.

So here is my question. If Mattel thinks they can sell a 6" figure for $9.99 at retail why not continue DCUC at retail just with less articulation? You could get rid of:

Wrist articulation-2
Stomach articulation-1
Strange thigh articulation-2
Ankle articulation-1

and there ya go 14 POA left.

I actually like the look of these figures. At $10 a pop I might give them a try.

These look like bootleg figures. But well made bootlegs.

I would like to see these done in the 4" scale.

Who else would like to see a 4" scale Total Heroes line to finally follow up DC Infinite Heroes with a small scale DC Universe?

Isn't DC Direct (or whatever they're called now) already doing that?

DC Collectibles is currently making 4" figures based on the INJUSTICE video game.
They also have the 4" Green Lantern figures that have been Comic-Con exclusives.

They have not announced any ongoing 4" line based on the DC Universe.

I mentioned this earlier. Look at that first 6 inch batman line that really kickstarted the DCSH line? Zipline batman...that was awesome.

I think that Zipline Batman has not enough articulation.
I would reduce the DCUC articulation down to what the Total Heroes have.
Eliminate the ab-crunch, biceps and thigh swivels.

These things look like the 10 inch (?) Flash they made a few years back for SDCC just smaller.

I hate the feet. First thing I looked at was the feet and I hate them. Also the knee pads things. or just the hyper protruding knee bone is awful. I really don't care for these at all but I do think its interesting that they are potentially doing blanks for people to make customs with, but seriously does anyone see any real value in that?

Broken Record Time

Don't forget ankles-- if you are going to eliminate POA always start with the ankle articulation-- which ends up making figures stand like POS.

Rebooting the 6" style and not continuing DCUC is a GOOD idea for Mattel. DCUC has reached a point where at retail all of the A list characters have been done and re-done. This way they get to redo all of the popular characters again. It sucks but it's smart.

I'm fine with my DCUC versions so i doubt I'll be buying any of these.
