So, what do you hope to see this February?

-Marvel Legends: As usual, I hope to see some surprise B and C Listers from the 70s and 80s.  Shang-Chi, Jack-of-Hearts, Ka-Zar, Count Nefaria, and the Swordsman are always high at the top of my Want list.

-DC Mattel/Whoever: Why bother?

-MOTC: I have completely mixed feelings about this line.  They are way too expensive and S7 has loads of QC issues.  There are a few more C List characters I still want, but can I count on S7 to deliver?  Doubtful.  I was a little more hopeful about the 5" vintage style line, but there seems to be issues there, too.  Sigh....

-Mega Construx Heroes: Fun, affordable little line to cherry pick from.  It'll be interesting to see whatever they have.

-Castlevania:  I think Diamond is doing these.  They could be pretty cool.  Fun to cherry pick.

-Mcfarlane Star Trek: They've already done a great looking Kirk, so I would love to see Scotty and Spock. 

-McFarlane Game of Thrones: I may cherry pick a few characters, depending on who gets made.  I can hardly believe McFarlane is doing decently articulated figures in Basic Vanilla Poses!!

As always, I'm hopeful for some cool, new Indy line that is actually affordable.

Marvel Legends

Same as it ever was:

Killraven, “Classic” GotG, Eternals, any Timely/Atlas pre FF #1 characters.  And Kung-Fu guys.  Shang-Chi et al. 

Indie Comic Line

Still waiting for a comprehensive non Marvel/DC line in six inch scale.  Only qualifier is that the character has to be born in an English speaking comic.  No licensed characters from other media.  So yeah, Judge Dredd.  But no Manga.

DC

Stand by...

I've loved comics since before I could read.  Marvel, DC, and Indie and all been on my reading list from time to time as well as the occasional licensed title.  In my "maturity" I've settled on DC.  It's the right decision for me in terms of being both manageable and affordable.  As well as in terms of my enjoyment.  DC has been firing on all cylinders since the Rebirth Special.  IMHO. 

I started collecting action figures as an adult 20 years ago.  And I started with Spawn.  I was big into a lot of the Indie titles of the day having fallen away from Marvel and DC and their mostly horrendous 90's output.  I switched back to DC in 2000.  Beckoned in large part by the new JSA title.  And I started picking up DCD figures.  See, comics and action figures have always been linked for me.  I collect no other types of figures.  And I gave up on DCD/DCC a very long time ago.   

In a perfect world, Mattel would be making a dedicated COMICS ONLY action figure line based on the entire DCU.  Dr. Occult to Naomi (Bendis' new character).  Superman to Scare Tactics.  Batman to 'Mazing Man.  1935-2019.  Everything.  Every character, every version, every era, every costume.  ALL OF IT.  As long as it's owned by DC.  Watchmen, Camelot 3000, Slash Maraud, Thriller, Nathanial Dusk, etc.  But it's not close to a perfect world.  So I'll take Rebirth.

All inclusive of Rebirth, I'd like to see some Dark Batmen.  I'd love Mime and Marionette.  I'll take the entire Shazam Family.  We need a new Cyborg and Martian Manhunter.  Red Hood is coming.  Gimme the rest of the Outlaws.  Young Justice is returning.  Both Titans and Teen Titans have been very good.  JSA is in the queue.  Legion should be too.  Need a Swamp Thing.  Desperately.  Pack in Bobo the Detective Chimp.  I could go on, but you get the idea.  Glass half full and all that.  Trying hard not to be cynical.  And I have come to realize that when Mattel does something I don't like, it's not personal.  It's just business. 

Leave the gun.  Take the cannoli.  Wink

I'd still like to see the Pulp Heroes get a go in 6" scale. At this point I think Mezco 1:12 is my best chance seeing as how they're doing a Popeye.

Great idea fish.  Even though I can’t afford em.  Wink  I think it’s probably the best format for Shadow, Doc Savage, Avenger, Tarzan, and the rest.

And speaking of pulp characters, any inkling of what happens with the Conan license when he comes back to Marvel in Jan?

Yep.  That’s what I was thinking.

Also for some reason, Red Sonja is still with Dynamite.  Dunno about Kull and the rest.

The thought of 6" GI JOE is pretty cool.

ML versions of Conan, King Conan, Red Sonja, Belit, and Kull would be great, but most of that can't happen.

Last I knew, McFarlane had the Conan toy license.  Maybe he still has it.

Marvel Legends - A healthier mix of comic based figures in the movie waves.  Some more New Warriors, X-Men Gold, 90's X-Factor, and 90's X-Force to complete some teams now that we're riding the 90's.

DC Multiverse - Just get some product out this year.  If they're going to show anything new let's see Rebirth Martian Manhunter, Azrael, Orphan, and Bobo!

Star Wars Black - Looks like they're going Prequels this year.  Aside from what's been shown I'd buy Dooku and some of the alien-looking Jedi like Ki-Adi-Mundi and Aayla Secura.  I actually kind of hope they make stuff I can pass on for budget reasons.

Transformers: War for Cybertron: Siege -I think we've seen the whole list leaked at this point, but for the reveals I'm hoping some of the alt modes are a bit more cybertronian.  That's my only complaint so far on what looks like a phenomenal line.

Marvel Minimates - Some comic based figures at all?  There are no solicitations out there it seems like.  Hopefully the line isn't dying.

I wouldn't mind seeing SPEEDBALL and THUNDERBIRD, but WARPATH would be my first choice. 

DC Multiverse - Just get some product out this year.  If they're going to show anything new let's see Rebirth Martian Manhunter, Azrael, Orphan, and Bobo!

I'm not doing a DC Wishlist, but since WB is heavy-on-the-modern, I wouldn't mind seeing The SIGNAL.

That said, with the YOUNG JUSTICE cartoon returning, I wouldn't mind seeing a line based on that.  But will it happen?  I'll believe it when I see it.

Young Justice figures crashed and burned in both scales before.  I can’t see them returning to that well.  However, the Young Justice comic returns next month with a mix of new and traditional characters.  Looks like fun.  Rebirth continues to expand its footprint from before the New 52.  I hope this expansion includes more figures.

I have a huge Rebirth want (among many).  Shade.  He appeared early on in the Flash for a few issues.  After all this “Dark Matter” stuff, I’m surprised he hasn’t shown up again.  Seems he’d fit right in.  Then again, James Robinson is working on a secret project so who knows.  Mattel made Gentleman Ghost so why not Shade?
