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.

My local Big Lots has Nightwing, Robin, and Catwoman in the Mattel two-packs. Do you have a Big Lots near you?
No, I don't. I checked Google and the nearest one is at least an hour's drive away. I have a lot of gas but it's not the kind that will work in a car.

If you're referring to the figure in the "Girls Of Gotham" four-pack, then 1) I'm pretty sure it was just a new head on the old body, 2) it's way too tall to display with Mattel figures, and 3) it really doesn't look anything like TNBA Ivy.

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.

A bit tall? She towers over Catwoman, and pretty much every other female character Mattel has produced. She was one of the best sculpts Hasbro ever managed to create for their line, but she looks totally out of place with Mattel's Joker.

I'll send you a private message.

Very much interested in any TNBA or STAS characters done in JLU style and scale. New sculpts and molds please. Won't be buying if it just a rehash of the old molds, 'cause I got those figures already.

Actually, Caped Crusader, the second B:TAS Ivy was a completely different sculpt from the first Ivy. It was closer to TNBA Ivy, but they used the same colors as the first Ivy (TNBA Ivy had green skin, etc.). It's got oddly bent legs and arms. I've got 'em both, and of those two, I prefer the original Ivy.

Y'know it's unfortunate that somebody doesn't have an action figure archive of the BTAS stuff. Somebody like ToyOtter. Then we could all look at them. Or post links. I'm just saying.

Yeah, the Ivy in the 4 pack is not TNBA accurate, which has always bothered me. I still have her displayed with my JLU stuff though.

Mattel needs to make a TAS Scarecrow three-pack.

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

Peace,

What an awesome idea! I'll take one! :D

This is the Ivy from Hasbro's box sets. I think she was released in two different sets. The colors are wrong and the proportions of head to body are off plus she's got that weird pose that doesn't look right no matter which way you position the limbs...

This is how the TNBA Ivy should have looked.....

And here are some more examples of characters that could be remade or re-issued...

Those customs are all by Mike Danza, except for the Clayface which was done by Casimir. I think they are amazing and hope Mattel can come up with versions of these characters that are as good as those customs. I really like the 5 POA Aquaman, it would look so much better in the line with the other figures.

The Mattel TNBA line i consider an extension of the JLU line, and the thin arms dont bother me cuz thats the way they were on the show.

Interesting. Don't they share the same hand-on-hip pose? Or is my memory really that faulty?

You can see her in the picture above, Caped Crusader. Actually, the first Ivy held a crossbow, no hand on hips (that I remember).

Ham Salad, thank you for the links. I'll bookmark 'em now.

Actually, though, my comment was a dig at ToyOtter, who used to have a BTAS Archive that he pulled down, and that I miss. Waste of time, though -- now that Jason's a big-time DVD star, he won't deign to notice my snark. It's beneath him.

Im a person that just wants the character. Not a big stickler for scale or proportion. Dont really care about supergirl being to short or Atom Smasher not being big enough. Do have a liking though for 4.75 to 5.25in figures.
Id be perfectly happy if they just re-released the original molds from Mattel.
I mainly want Metallo, Lois, and Alfred.
I honestly wouldnt be surprised if a few of the figures in mattels new DCAU line are remakes of old hasbro figures.
