I just want Harley and Black Mask, after them, they can make whoever they want


Same here, and honestly, if Black Mask doesn't get made I'll deal, I just really want a Harley figure from this line.

Other than that, they've covered all the characters I really want that have appeared on the show. (Of course, in terms of characters that haven't appeared... :D )

I wish I could hold out hope for Harley Quinn, Black Mask, Maxie Zeus, and Spellbinder, but I just have no confidence in Mattel anymore. I can't believe they are puttting out JLU characters this coming Fall & Winter over the villians.

I asked a Mattel rep about this at SDCC and he said that he wasn't sure if they would make anymore villians from the show since it was taking a new direction. My sense was that Mattel really wasn't inclined to make Harley Quinn or Black Mask figures after that conversation.

My guess is that this will be the last year "The Batman" is in production and the line will limp off into the sunset without much fanfare. Typical of Mattel's inability to please the Batman fans because they cater to the JLU fans. There is a difference in the two fan bases.

Batman fans really wanted a Harley Quinn or Black Mask figure, while JLU fans wanted Hawkman, Green Lantern, Supes, and the Flash....guess which fanbase won? Duh.

To be fair though the Batman line has never been a big collector line. Most folks never bought into the style and scale. There's not a lot of buzz about it, it never gets many responses in the polls here. It's kind of viewed more as a kids line. Heroes outsell villains. I can't say that I blame them for the new direction.

Well, I for one, will be very disappointed if the Batman cartoon goes away or if the toy line limps off into nothing or however it was worded. I really like the Batman cartoon and toyline. Of course I don't buy every Batman that is made but I buy one of every character that they make. I thought it was a good idea to have JLU characters appear in the Batman line. I figured it would stir up interest and get more sales for the line. But, if they don't plan on making more villains then what's the point? An all hero line?

Just my two cents.

F.Y.I. I am looking for old Batman/Superman animated figures. I need Killer Croc, Manbat, Ventriliquist, Alfred, Riddler and Lois Lane.

You got to have bad guys, it just make sense.

I collect the characters from the line not the different Batmans. Even my kids don't like the those. they want the bad guys they see to reenact there favorite scenes.

I have high hopes with this line in the upcoming year as well as JLU, LOSH and DCSF.

That's sad news to hear. This line just won't be complete without Harley.
