They should have some kind of deal going on where you mail them back your ICONS, they melt down the plastic to use for new toys, and give you a discount if you buy said New Toys.  Haha!

Word!!

DC Essentials look like flaming dogshit.  And they're seven fucking inches tall.  This has to come to an end.  Soon.

Why do they do this?!

I do like the Supergirl status. I think that's a much better look than the tired skirt/shirt ensemble.

Here's my question: How deep will this 'new' line go before it gets cancelled, or replaced by something else??

For God's sake why don't they just hire the 4 Horsemen and start up DC Classics 2.0?

Sigh.  We Oldsters just aren't meant to keep collecting DC figures.  Not unless we want hundreds of BATMANs.  We had our 'heyday' with DCUC and JUSTICE LEAGUE UNLIMITED.  Now?  We're boned.

The key is to manage your expectations.  I expect nothing from DCC.  So I won't be disappointed. 

I expect Rebirth/Metal/Doomsday Clock from Mattel.  Also lots of Batman, Superman, and Justice League.  So I won't be disappointed.  We may still get a handful of "classic" figures like Reaper and Dr. Psycho which will be few and far between.  But surprises are creeping back into the line.  Notably Ray.  So there's that.  I'm keeping an open mind.

That's the way to be, GARD.  If they actually make something I want, I'll buy it.  But there's a damn good chance they won't.  And that's OK.  There's a lot of other toys I want, so I can just focus on that stuff.
