Title: DCUC Wave 14 - Let's talk - ** UPDATED with new Matty Pics!
Post by: fishmilkshake on January 27, 2010, 04:50:28 am
So we're not far away from the announcement at NYTF of the DCUC Wave 14 line-up.

In addition to some of the other fan choice figs there have been some rumours around including:

Martian Manhunter
Zatanna
Golden Pharaoh
Plastic Man
Tyr
Obsidian
Jemm
Kamandi
Raven
Starman
Mento
Alan Scott

Thoughts?

I believe the Walmart Computers (from which the list has come) actually says Green Lantern, rather than Alan Scott, which allows some of us to hope we'll get the Best GL Ever (tm) - Kyle Rayner.   I don't care which costume he comes in, since I want as many of them as I can get, but it would be nice to have Kyle over Guy and Alan, though it seems more people want them.

I hope Zatanna is in the costume to match the Cover Girls statue, cause cleavage is good, and I don't need fishnets on her.

I think Raven is more likely to be in wave 16 rather than 14, since The Question was just in 11, 5 waves between the two Fan Picks seems more likely to me.  But sooner is better, so I'd be perfectly happy if she's in 14.

Other than that, I don't have any particular feelings for anybody, other than I will get them all still.  They're nobody I hate, though that's pretty restricted to Adam West Batman, Burt Ward Robin, or any other pixie boots/speedo Robin.

The general consensus is that that list is probably part truths of Waves 14 and 15. To keep the Metal Men / Doom Patrol pattern going there needs to be a Metal Man in there somewhere. You have to wonder if Jemm is a red (ha) herring they've thrown out there, much like the Bouncing Boy dupe for 12 or 13. Not a character I'd be chomping at the bit for.

As for Tyr and Golden Phalange, let's get this Super Powers wank-off out of the way and be done with it. Very happy to have Tyr as he is a Legion villain, but G. Phalange is the biggest piece of made up trash  :P.

Very hopeful that Obsidian really gets there - he's a much wanted figure for me!

Post by: fishmilkshake on January 27, 2010, 05:15:01 am
I'm definitely keen on Jonn and any Kirby work is welcome so I'll take a Kamandi.
I'd take Alan Scott over Kyle or Guy, but then I'd like to see the JSA complete.
Plastic Man is fine though they'll need to top the Justice one and I'm fine with any version of Zatanna.

Which Starman?

I believe that Raven is Wave 15.

....and no Golden Pharaoh for me thanks.

Oh yes,if/when they finally release a MM figure in DCUC i'll be adding him to my collection.Their JSA is shaping up nicely too dammit!

There were rumors that Plas was going to be the SDCC exclusive this year.

I think MM is way overdue... I want to see how he turns out.

The must haves of that list for me are Obsidian and Mento (to complete the Doom Patrol) and I also will be needing an Elasti-Girl C&C thank you very much.

As for Starman... I want the 80s version nobody else wants...  :P But I'm guessing Jack Knight.

By the way Mattel... Where is The Ray? Where is Rocket Red?

... Oh, and Crimson Fox...  ;D

I wondered if it might be the Golden Age Starman since we got the McNider 'Dr Midnight'.
By "80's Starman" do you mean that purple and gold fella?

Yeah, 'the Ray' seems to be one of those b-list characters I thought would have had a chance by now. As long as we don't start getting variations like another Batman, etc. 2 in DCUC is enough thanks as there's also the DC Superheroes one too. I'm also happy enough with the Wave 3 Robin that I don't need the original Tim Drake costume or the pixie boots version.

Do we have a "DCUC characters we'd like to see" thread?

I'm talking about THIS guy:

(http://i647.photobucket.com/albums/uu198/freakstudios/Random/starman28.jpg)

He had everything, the costume, the hair, the inverted pentagram... Wait, isn't that a demonic symbol? Plus, he's totally kicking Superman's sorry ass!

Do we have a "DCUC characters we'd like to see" thread?

I don't think we do... And I have several great ideas for Matty, like:

(http://i647.photobucket.com/albums/uu198/freakstudios/Random/Snowflame.jpg)

SNOWFLAME! He's powers are based in the awesomeness of cocaine!! Fear his snorting power! SNOWFLAMES TO ME!

.....and 'no' to Snowflame. That's just giving Mattel the wrong message and who knows what crap we'd get.......maybe "The Beefeater"  ;D


Title: Re: DCUC Wave 14 - Let's talk

Starman could definitely do with some variants - as long as we get the GA version I'm good.

Post by: demoncat4 on February 05, 2010, 11:22:14 pm
one rumor i heard was gold was the next metal man to get made raven think is wave fifteen. since she is fan choice. green latern may mean any one . though odds are hal again or guy. plastic man is being talked as a exclusive. plus the wal mart list once has swamp thing also on it as possible figures but swamp thing the four horseman wanted to do him but Warner said no he is considered Vertigo .  the truth of who is coming will be revealed at toy fair but Martian Manhunter i will not buy for i already have him Kamandi  hope he is shown coming in the next few waves. plus obsidian was also on the walmart list  we have to wait till toy fair to find out .


Title: Re: DCUC Wave 14 - Let's talk

Post by: dozymuppet on February 06, 2010, 05:28:02 pm
I'm tempted to agree. Don't really care about Zatanna unless we get a Satellite-era version, and none of these were actually on my "list", but so much awesomeness.

Tyr is the only "meh" character in there but he's unique so that's cool. But Green Lantern, Hourman and more Kirby goodness. Yippee!

Post by: Scotty on February 06, 2010, 06:21:03 pm
Good to know the intel we've been hearing is correct, but in a sense the leaks are a shame as they dull the excitement of the reveals a bit. Still, this is an A+ wave for me. It doesn't contain any of my fave characters except Zatanna (who I'd much prefer in her Satellite League gear) but it's very solid in terms of covering a wide range of bases in the DCU, and the JSA love doesn't hurt. Tyr was inevitable from a SP perspective, but he's a Legion villian so he gets a pass from me.

Four characters that have never been done at this scale and a rocking CnC? Magic stuff.

Post by: aj_rogan on February 06, 2010, 07:41:19 pm
i hadn't heard any spoilers about this but it's very exciting, especially Ultra-Humanite and Kamandi! I am still only halfway through wave 11 though so hopefully this won't come out too soon or i wont be able to afford it.

i prefer Zatanna's current look too so that version doesn't bother me.

Even more awesome, even if Kamandi is as JQ over at the mess said:

doesn't look like Kamandi as much as he looks like some guy working on roofs in San Francisco

Zatanna looks better than I thought she would. Sold.


Title: Re: DCUC Wave 14 - Let's talk
Post by: Scotty on February 06, 2010, 09:55:38 pm
I'd have to agree with that assessment about Kamandi. Without a distinctly Kirby face he's just a dude in shorts. Let the complaining commence.

Everything else is wow with a capital W.O.W. Not 100% sold on Zatanna's yellow vest, but that headsculpt is aces. Ultra-Humanite is all kinds of awesome.


Title: Re: DCUC Wave 14 - Let's talk
Post by: dozymuppet on February 06, 2010, 09:58:57 pm
One of the Mess guys mentioned that Kamandi has a hint of the Ryan Sook version from Wednesday Comics, so I'm OK with that. I might still want to make a very Kirby version using a New Gods buck though.


Title: Re: DCUC Wave 14 - Let's talk
Post by: fishmilkshake on February 06, 2010, 09:59:54 pm
I just hope Zatanna comes out as good as that pic.

Gold looks stunning!

That's a good idea. Lightray would be a good starter. Head might be a little big, but then Kirby's noggins were on the large side.

You'd have to get rid of a fair bit of the back of his head to stick some blond locks on so it didn't look ginormous, but it might just work.


Title: Re: DCUC Wave 14 - Let's talk
Post by: demoncat4 on February 06, 2010, 11:04:34 pm
cool for though ultra Humanite would work best as a C&c and Gold was right about . that wave takes off a few from my wish list. though tyre never bought the super powers one. as for Mu. good for my xmen ranks need to be replished and finaly get a shot at shadow cat. 


Title: Re: DCUC Wave 14 - Let's talk
Post by: Freak Studio on February 07, 2010, 11:18:04 am
Obsidian is the absolute must for me. If I buy Iron, I'm surely gonna get Gold. Alan Scott I'll have to see in person. Zatanna looks nice. Tyr I'll pass. Kamandi looks a little old. And I again really want the C&C, shit!

Does the comic purists understand that they're only getting Kamandi is because he showed up in Batman TB&TB? I'm tired of reading comments like "Comic Universe and Cartoon Universe should stay away or restricted to only cartoon toy lines", if that was the case, you wouldn't have Kamandi, or Copperhead, or so many others.

Actually the guy who is in charge of DC for Mattel stated Kamandi and vowed that he would be made into a figure . and surprised that it does not state that like Iron gold has moving parts for one would think Mattel now that they made the first of the Mental Men would just reuse the mold and save them money. for it would be cool to have all the Metal men with moving parts. and Ultra Humanite is the only reason i am going to buy Tyre. for i mostly want Gold and Kamandi and Obsidian and Zartana since do not like the other attempts at her in plastic.  As for Alan  only going to buy him for my JSa and to complete ultra. and we now need Jade and a rose and thorn to complete the family since we have Alan and Obsidian now.

Post by: ryanlb on February 08, 2010, 12:43:13 am
Meh, not best wave ever, but pretty good.  No matter what they do to Kamandi, he's always just going to be a dude in shorts, I don't hate him, but I have no reason to like him either.

Gold, Obsidian and Alan Scott (Boo! Where's Kyle?) look good.  Tyr looks pretty unique too.

Zatanna needs a repaint - white vest and cleavage, the yellow vest looks garish to me.  Boo on that choice (along with Alan Scott).

Ultra-Humanite looks great, really like the face.

kamandi was one of the first comics I ever read, so I must own him. I also need to check out the Brave&bold ep he showed up in.
Agree on the yellow vest on zatanna seems odd.

sadly that would wreck the figure unless you can figure a way to repaint the teeth . other wise  you will have to just live with the way Mattel made him or buy two one to improve the teeth and one to keep as orginal. me i wish his mouth could close for open like that makes Obsidian look pycho. can not wait for Gold.

OK... The size of the mouth makes the figure look freakishly thin. Plus he loos incredibly pissed off about something, perhaps he just saw his horrible huge mouth in the mirror. The body is OK, but the head is so bad I'm actually considering not buying the figure is my most absolut want from the wave...

Happy?
