    Big fan of superheroes. I know Marvel probably has better sets but I prefer DC because of the characters and classic stories. I also like Doctor Who but find it difficult justifying the Cyberman or other Dimensions pack. I stopped collecting Star Wars because I simply couldn't afford to collect them anymore. I miss the Harry Potter line but Star Wars prevented me from getting any of the larger sets

    Think they specifically said all figs were golden age based, so that rules out Black Mask or Deathstroke You've got golden age Flash and Superman from Action Comics #1, a long awaited nemesis (possibly Black Adam, who first appeared in 1945) and a Batman villain not on shelves at the moment, the forerunners there being Scarecrow, Penguin or Hatter. (You know that I'd happily accept a Golden Age Killer Moth though @RedHoodPug haha, with those huge eyebrows)

    It's either, has never been on the shelves, which pretty much leaves us with Mad Hatter, or they're just not presently on shelves, which could be either a Penguin or Scarecrow variant.

    I wouldn't call it a bad choice, considering that's what Deathstroke had worn for decades. The only other choice at the time would have been the New 52 one, considering the more armoured ones you might be accustomed to all debuted outside the comics
  4. Hasbro, Mattel...it all blends together when they're not Lego. Still, no Marvel CMFs.

    Now that they're made in the same factory (?) as other sets, it's presumably easier to reuse assets like Arthur's head, and shower guy's torso
  6. Now a comics CMF, that would actually be interesting... But, the same issues apply
  7. Hasbro has a monopoly on Marvel and Star Wars action figures. Minifigures are classified as such, and so can not be sold individually. Now personally, I'm really happy with my DC series, but this is how it is

    Cyborg, Batman, WW, Sinestro, Potentially Cheetah and Bumblebee and Simon Baz are all based on their debut outfits to the best of my knowledge, while Stargirl and Metamorpho have had a pretty consistent look throughout their history. The outlier is Huntress, who is seemingly based on her look torwards the end of Pre-Flashpoint DC, and early New 52.

    Maybe not first appearance Lex, but perhaps the version seen in the Forty Cakes dictionary extract

    Oh absolutely, I'm actually a bit surprised we haven't seen his 2016 mould reused on a new variant. His MM and CMF figs both used the bumblebee part. Seeing the helmet in a pearl silver or light grey to represent his Year One/Rebirth looks would be brilliant

    No, Silkie, which is one of Killer Moth's genetically modified moth larvae. Starfire adopted it in both the Teen Titans and TTG shows. Honestly, I'd love another Moth variant

    I still think you could do the Batwing, paired with Joker's Parade Floats, including the 200th anniversary cake (maybe with parts to switch it to 80th, in honour of Batman) from Batman '89.

    Probably the Keaton Batwing. The Batmobile is likely intended to be a companion piece to the D2C

    Animal Man and Vixen are your best bet. Either could come with any kind of animal

    All the same, I think DC can fit into those same archtypes, while appealing to fans A Vigilante or Jonah Hex works for Cowboy fans. An Ares works for mythological fans, as would a number of Wonder Woman foes Adam Strange would tap into that 50s Space market Animal Man and Vixen could open up a wealth of new animal moulds And you've got the traditional moustache twirling villains for kids to use against their favourite heroes. Literally, in Sinestro's case
