Also, I feel like a few of the choices may have been so they could integrate with DCUC better than some other characters, as the villains in this lineup all have inhuman faces, so their slightly less “real” appearance can be more easily ignored, such as “he doesn’t look human, but he’s mostly ice.” Plus, would you guys really want a animated style line of guys we already have that don’t integrate well into DCUC? I’m already going to be giving away Superman, Batman and Black Lightning as I already have their DCUC counterparts, I’m glad I don’t have to buy more retreads so I can make Brimstone.

Cameron, Icicle II does appear in the comic. I admit that in the blog. What bugs me is that he only has 1 panel which is shared by others while other characters have a much larger role / more page time in the story.

Cameron sports the goatee and appeared in S/B Public Enemies comic book.

And news for the hard of hearing, Joar Mahkent is still dead. (Wow… that’s a thirty something year old SNL reference. My age is showing)

He looked through the original comic and came up with some names that he would have liked to see in the wave instead of the characters chosen. I do love Brimstone, and want him more than most, but I do support his choice for a better C&C for that wave. And looking at the images he captured from the Public Enemies trailer, I realize now… I might have lost my only chance at a DCUC Kestrel. Seriously. […]

These are toys based on comic characters. So you would have to be a comic fan before wanting them, especially since the movie is not out yet. We are equally demanding in terms of the product that is being produced for our consumption!

I was hoping to see Katana with this wave though. We’ve God Metamorpho, BL, and Bats; Katana would have added to the core membership of the Outsiders. I love McGuiness style though. I wonder if DC Direct’s character selection influenced this line-up. I don’t believe any of these, save Bats and Supes were released as McGuiness style DCDs.

Yo can count me as another voter for the Batman/Superman robot C&C. You do realize though, had they done that, the boards would be full of scale complaint issues…….. Sometimes, Mattel can’t win no matter what they do since we all want something different. Fun wave though, IMO.

There were only 5 waves planned this year from the start (7-11), which we’re still getting, so the Target wave is extra.
