This is why I try to stay positive.

 Not my ultimate 90’s wave but I’ll take it.  I’d love to see Damage I, Zauriel, Aztek I, Monarch and many more.  How ‘bout Hourman III?

I'm not going to get ahead of myself and start making wish lists, but this is absolutely a step in the right direction.  Hopefull there will be more surprises like this in store.  I don't even expect to see a whole lot that I need, but anything is better than 0 Wants Per Year.

I don't give 2 shits about LOBO, but I do like that figure, which surprises me.

BLIS, whatta you think of IMPULSE?

I detest Lobo.  But if he helps sell the line, then I’m fine with it.

Impulse is interesting.  Tim Drake?  Max Mercury?  Other YJ/Titans?

Impulse's hair almost makes me think these are customs.  If legit, I love it!

Word on Facebook is that this may not be the final lineup.

Some of the toy news sites have picked this up.  I’m pretty sure there’s at least some truth to this.  Leaked pictures seem to be Mattel’s preferred marketing strategy at the moment.

That CATWOMAN is great looking, too.  That was always my fave costume for her.  I find her recent black outfits extremely boring and utilitarian.

True. 

But there's a reason I think DEATHSTROKE and TASKMASTER had the coolest costumes ever.  I'll take garish and cartoonish outfits in comics over practicality and realism 8 days a week.  Hell....just look at my signature!  Haha!

On that note, I find the endless array of black Batmobiles boring.  Blue and black with yellow highlights for the win.

 On that note I hated the military look of the tumbler and the last one in BVS, i want to see a new movie Batmobile sleek and stylish. Wonder why they are giving out a new batman beyond? Looks the same from the last one. I can understand making Lobo updated and smaller. And in these photos the hip joints puzzle me? i pray they don't change them, they look like DC Direct.

I despised the Nolanverse and BvS Tank-mobiles.  Again, I get the 'realism' of them, but I'm no longer looking for that in my Super Hero media.  That phase ended once the public started taking the genre 'seriously'.

And it's not just DEATHSTROKE and TASKMASTER's duds.  I love bright reds, yellows, whites, oranges, and greens in costumes.  Purple is cool, too.

Back on topic, anybody want to hazard a guess as to the 'real' line up, or who might be next?  Will this still be called Multiverse if it's just comic accurate?  Will it be solely comic accurate?  Is this a relaunch?  Will I keep asking dumb questions?

Who knows any of that stuff.

But the “real” lineup will probably have Kid Flash II or Beast Boy in it.  Maybe the rumored Red Hood.  Cyborg for the C&C.

Maybe.    Grin banghead.gif  Wink

KID FLASH makes sense since TRU is kaput.

I would LOVE to think they are dumping TV and Movie figures.  That alone would peak my interest.

TV might be gone.  Movie figures are a fact of life.
