Title: YOUR JLU Top Ten! Vote here!
Post by: Kimmel Prime on February 21, 2009, 03:52:04 pm
OK, here are the rules, the only characters eligible are ones who appeared on the show. We are going to split it into three categories, the first will be heroes/support/civilians, the second will be villains, and the final, will be characters created for the show, which will only be a top 5. We'll keep this open for a few months, and then tally it up, if we get a good response, we'll do another one after SDCC. Most important, make sure you list them in order of your preference, if Crimson Avenger is your most wanted JLU character, make sure you rank him at #1 as the place you rank him will determine where he finishes in the final top ten.  Here are the eligible characters:

Characters created for the show NONE, (would like the following villains in addition to my above choices)
1. Steppenwolf
2. Stompa
3. Mad Harriet
4. Killer Frost
5. Chronos

I would also like Mattel to stick with characters only on BTAS, STAS, Batman Beyond (VILLAINS), JL, and JLU which are the shows I grew up watching. I have no interest in getting figures that never appeared on the above shows. Most if not all of the revealed characters at NYCC were a huge disappointment. The Superfirends three pack is horrible, only want Shazam from four pack, I have no idea who OMAC, Ultra-Man, and Superwoman are and the fact that are spending money for tooling on figures like this makes me think there will never finish the core characters.

Post by: Sector1014 on February 21, 2009, 10:59:19 pm
Mattel has pretty much said/implied already that Mr. Terrific and Adult Supergirl will be made.  They're also very aware that everyone wants Hal Jordan and Lobo.  They recently said that they are continuing to work for approval on both of those.  That's why I go for the more obscure choices for the most part.  They know the big wants.  Just my 2 cents.  Also, I love that you listed pretty much all of the New Gods, Legion of SH, and Green Lanterns.  Hopefully we can eat through these groups via Matty Collector or some more 6 packs.

Heroes/Support:
1. Metron (needs his chair)
2. Timberwolf
3. Saalak
4. Arisia
5. Inza Nelson
6. Mera
7. Gypsy
8. Triplicate Girl
9. Phantom Girl

With all due respect, I couldn't disagree with you more.  I would love to see them plow through the entire DC Universe with this line (the comics and all the animated stuff).  The more the better.  (i.e., Firestorm, Blue Beetle, Phantom Stranger, just to name three big ones that never made it to JL/JLU).

Post by: rodkeith on February 22, 2009, 12:19:37 am
My feeling is, with such a limited number,  if you want Legion, JSA, New Gods or GL characters, any one of those groups hijack the entire list, so for the most part I kept away from those. The ones I've chosen as #1 in each category, aren't my fave characters by any means, but I think they're due for the reason listed:

Heroes/Support:

1. Gypsy (as she completes the Detroit JLA)
Crimson Avenger
Stripes
Solivar
Mera
Warlord
Speedy
High Father
Viking Prince
Metron


Villains:

1. Kanjar Ro (one of the earliest JLA villains)
Ocean Master
Felix Faust
Morgaine Le Fay
Vandal Savage
Metallo
Captain Boomerang
Hellgrammite
Queen Bee
Kobra

Hello! Another visitor from AFI. I noticed that somebody else mentioned a few figures that Mattel already has plans for or knows that they're extremely wanted by collectors. When I took Hal, Lobo and Mr. Terrific out of the equation, it was just too hard to choose replacements for them. I would love more Green Lanterns! And I'm a sucker for secret identities. But it was just too difficult to settle so I left my list the way it was:

Heroes:

1) Hal Jordan
2) S.T.R.I.P.E.
3) Mr. Terrific
4) Dr. Midnight
5) Hourman
6) Speedy
7) Crimson Avenger
8) Lobo
9) Sgt. Rock
10) High Father

Villains:

1) Kalibak
2) Captain Cold
3) Toyman
4) Mongul
5) Captain Boomerang
6) Parademons
7) Granny Goodness
8) Metallo
9) Manhunters
10) Kanjar Ro

Be up today, trying to get some pictures together to make it look nice. Though my enthusiasm is just about gone since I don't like the fact Mattel keeps threatening it's customers to buy something they don't want to get something they will want. Don't get too excited about that LOSH pack Andy, I'll be shocked if they actually sell it

Post by: Scotty on March 20, 2009, 08:16:35 am
Thanks for your efforts KP. I think we'll get the first Legion pack (they have set a date after all) but am not going to hold my breath for any more.


Title: Re: YOUR JLU Top Ten! Vote here!
Post by: Kimmel Prime on March 20, 2009, 08:19:19 am
Which is a damn bit ridiculous, just like with DCIH, the first thing they put out has to be one of the most lackluster products you can imagine. Sure the Gotham pack was kinda cool, but had they started with Shazam or LOSH they probably would have done better. I am just going to laugh when they go through the big names on MOTU and are producing big numbers on MOTU third stringers and threatening those fans with cancellation when someone doesn't sell out in three days

Post by: Kimmel Prime on March 20, 2009, 08:28:26 am
Hey Toy fans,

Wanted to give a quick update on JLU product.

There has indeed been a delay in getting the Target figures to store. Here is what happened. The Cheetah and Batman Beyond packs were supposed to ship in Jan but the plant producing them litterally shut down. (hey, the economy is bad all over the world right now).

This meant back in Dec we needed to start this wave over again which set us back almost 3 months. Not the best foot forward, but sometimes these things are way out of our control.

Never the less, the figures are on the way and should be in Target's soon. But this has pushed back the roll out and all the waves for 2009 are now about three months late. (but once we get new product out, there should not be any further delays).

In other JLU news, we are going forward with the next MattyCollector.com 4 pack, Legion of Superheroes which will be on sale May 15th. However, it is no secret that the Gotham Criminals pack (still on sale now on MattyCollector.com!) has not sold to expectations.

As a JLU collector myself, nothing would be cooler than to keep JLU four packs going indefinately on my webstore. But unless sales pick up with this next pack, sadly that may not be the case. We can only produce figures for Matty.com if fans are buying them. Quite litterally this is your chance to vote with your purchase.

We will go forward with the LOSH pack, but anything past that is up in the air as to whether enough fan demand exisits to keep online packs going. So if you are a JLU fan or know someone who is, tell em to get over to MattyCollector.com and pick up a set today!

-Matty

Oh, argh, I hear you now.

Perhaps if the Gotham Criminals 4-pack was a bit more inspirational (i.e. a unique sculpt for Bane, a decent head for Clock King etc. ) people might have grabbed it up more. Also, they just don't seem to get that product from lines that are also available at retail are less likely to sell out rapidly than a line that is ONLY available online.

I expect the Legion figures to sell well, because there will be alot of Legion fans desperate for actual toys buying them, beyond the JLU market. Could be wrong, but I suspect they might do better than the current 4-pack.

Still, that is very sucky.

The thing is I think they have decided to cancel it no matter what, if we still do get the LOSH pack, unless it sells out in a couple of days it won't be good enough for them. I also think it's funny that they are "targeting JLU completists." Which is what Toy Guru claimed on AFI, kinda hard to be a completists when half the people can't find the product. How many people missed out on the last two six packs?

Hey folks - Kimmel has been unable to come back to this and is going to be offline for a little while, and has asked if someone else would be able to do a bit of work on this poll to wrap it up. I'm a bit snowed under with other stuff to take all of it on and need some help.

Could we have a volunteer to do a tallly for each category and come up with the top 15 heroes, 15 villains and 10 characters created for the show? If someone could do this count I can then set up polls to come up with our top 5 in each category etc.

PM me if you think you could help.

Cheers

Andy
