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  Tongue.

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

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.

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...  Tongue But I'm guessing Jack Knight.

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

... Oh, and Crimson Fox...  Grin

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:



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:



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

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

I love this place! I can't even mock a lame 'D' list character without one of you wanting one......and another of you having made one.
