I would love Robin (Tim Drake), Nightwing, Batgirl, Two-Face, and Catwoman all rereleased by Mattel in their proper colors as I missed many of them the first time around.

I would also like to see ALL of the figures Hasbro and Kenner made either rerelased using the old mold (like Clayface) or made into entirely new sculpts (Hasbro's Lois Lane is even bigger than JLU Supes.)

Figures I would love to see as sculpted released (because I don't have them) are Phantasm/ Andrea Beaumont, Creeper, Clayface, Bane, and Man-Bat. Figures rereleased with new sculpts that I need are Batman Beyond, the Jokerz, Blight, and Alfred.

Personally I like uniformity in my collecting. I would like for all my animated sereis style figures to at least look the same.

Don't get me wrong I lovce the BTAS and STAS figures and several of them stand proudly with my JLU stuff. BUt my creeper towers over my Orion. And poor Harley is taller then Bizzarro. It just doesn't look right.

I guess what I'm trying to say is I do beleive these figures should be resculpted. The Bat embargo is over, these characters should get the same treatment as any other DC character.

I mean really, we got the umteenth Joker that really wasn't neccessary TWICE now.

Why cant they show Poison Ivy, and Scarecrow some love.

It's not the pose... It's the arms and legs themselves. They're way thin.

I don't think the show embargo's ever affected the JLU line.

Using the old molds? Not interested.

Translating some of those characters (Metallo, Batgirl, Bane, Gordon) into JLU style? Very, very interested!!!!

Does anyone know if the new JLU Joker is a shrunken version of the Mattel TNBA with a new head?

It's not shrunken at all. It's the exact body with a different head.

Personally, I want Ivy and Scarecrow from the redesigned look in TNBA. The Hasbro Harley is too tall for JLU.

My local Big Lots has Nightwing, Robin, and Catwoman in the Mattel two-packs. Do you have a Big Lots near you?

Exactly.

I'm pretty sure it's the same body, just with a different head.

Not shrunken, the same one. The head is tilted forward like Bizarro's instead of back like the TNBA Joker.

Yeah. That does give the illusion of him being shorter.

Really? I think they look fine, but then I'm no fan of the uber-straight arms on the generic female body...

Now that I can understand. The TNBA Scarecrow had a great design and I would definitely buy THAT version if Mattel made him. However, if it was just a resculpt of the BTAS version Kenner made, then I would be dissapointed. I do believe Hasbro made a TNBA Ivy, but only released it in special box sets. I can understand having her redone on a single card. I have the Kenner Harley, and while she is a bit tall for JLU, I still think the sculpt is perfect and the height difference isn't too bothersome.

Yeah, I have the Hasbro Harley displayed with my JLU and she looks pretty good. I still wouldn't mind Mattel making a new one though.

Mattel needs to make a TAS Scarecrow three-pack.

All three designs, and sign me up to buy THAT. :)

Peace,

Chip
