    I can see how that kind of makes sense in a way - saving the reveal for the fans rather than wasting it on the buyers at Toy Fair (who've never really seemed to care either way, in my opinion.)

    "Woke up at 9.55am. Soon as I woke up, I looked at Suzanne and she looked at me. I said, 'Did I tell you about the immune system?' Suzanne starting laughing, I said, 'it's amazing.' She said, 'Not now.'"

    Wow! Those look great. (I haven't read that book in ages. I'll have to dig up a copy now.)

    I don't know that I'm willing to jump into another action figure line, but those look sweet. Okay, I might have to get Rorschach and Comedian. It is Watchmen, after all.
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Awesome! Just a few thoughts, though:
    1 - I was hoping he'd be done as a BAF. He's usually depicted in recent years as being quite on the larger side; this version's perfectly acceptable to me, but I might have liked him to tower over the Justice League.

    2 - Why on earth we he have that weird notch on his upper back? Maybe the body was designed for Hawkman (an anchor point for the wings?) and for whatever reason they decided to reuse it for Amazo there?

    3 - Is he missing the mid-thigh joint we've all become so accustomed to, or is that just a really well assembled prototype and it just doesn't show in the picture?

    News from TNI:
    2008 NYCC - Mattel and DC panel
    by James in Mattel at 12:24 PM on 2008.04.19

    Scott Knightly lead a panel today at the 2008 New York Comic Con. He is the DC brand manager for Mattel. Other panelists included two of the Four Horsemen - Eric and Corn Boy, Michelle Rubin of DC and Julia Montoya of Mattel. Slides were shown of some upcoming DC products, but no photography was allowed.

    Brown Manbat will be out in 2009.

    DCUC - sculpted by the Four Horsemen

    There will be 6 waves total in 2008.

    Wave 4 will include - Cyborg, Batman Beyond, Captain Atom, Wonder Woman and very large looking badass named Ares. The BAF is Despero, who will include several accessories and stands at 8 1/2 inches. Variants will be Artemis and a gold Captain Atom.

    There will be a bonus wave of DCUC, available exclusively at Walmart, but not to panic - it will be shipping throughout the year, so it should be easy to find. Mattel is trying to secure international shipping, so overseas collectors won't be left out. It will be available in the Fall.

    The Walmart wave features Amazo, Atom, Riddler (in his business suit), Eradicator and Black Lightening (shaved head version). The BAF is Metallo.

    Wave 6 will be available in late Fall. 3 characters were shown - Hawkman (who will have some wing articulation), Superman (in his black suit and hippy hair) and Mr. Miracle.

    Coming this August the first wave of Toys R Us exclusive 2-packs will ship. Wave one has Batgirl and Azreal; Light Ray and Orion (with removable helmet).

    There will be a DCUC San Diego Comic Con exclusive - Lobo and his Dog! Lobo will have weapons and chains. He will be 7 1/2 inches tall.

    Infinite Heroes - Mattel's new 3 3/4 scale line

    There will be 54 figures in all released in 2008, including both singles with chases, 2-packs, 6-packs and a TRU exclusive 8-pack.

    The Singles Wave 1, due in August, has - Adam strange, Black Adam, Black Hand, Guy Gardner, Zoom, Atom (modern version) and Shazam.

    The 3-Pack Wave 1 will be Commissoner Gordon and 2 SWAT agents; Flash, Mirror Master and Weather Wizard.

    Dark Knight Movie figures -

    There will be basic and deluxe figures in the 5 inch scale. The Movie Masters line will be in the 6 inch scale. The first 3, already shown at Toy Fair 2008 will be out before SDCC and the second 3 will be revealed at SDCC. The first three are Batman, with maskless chase, Joker and Henchman.

    Justice League Unlimited

    JLU will be a Target exclusive going forward, but Mattel is looking for international distribution for them. There will be 16 new characters, along with various repaints. The line will have singles, 3-packs and 6-packs.

    Wave 1 of the singles will have Batman, Superman, Kilowag, Star Girl and Hawkman.

    Wave 1 of the 3-packs are Superman, Huntress and Galacta; Green Lantern, Supergirl and Captain Atom.

    Wave 1 of the 6-packs is rerelease of the Grodd pack with all new, show accurate paint decos. The set includes Flash, Red Hood, Grodd, Batman, Superman and Lex Luthor.

    Wave 2 of the 6-packs is a set of Atomic Skull, Silver Banshee, KGBeast, The Key, Shadow Thief and Batman.

    There will be a SDCC exclusive - Giganta! She will include a two up giant size as well as a regular sized version of Giganta. They will be available for $20 at the Mattel booth, which will be taking credit cards this summer.

    DC Super Friends - Mattel's kid friendly PVC line

    This will be out in June and will have Aquaman, Cyborg and Hawkman. There will also be a My First Batwing vehicle with Batman figure available.

    Batman Beyond? Lobo with his dog (and, hopefully, his hawg)? Eradicator? Comic-accurate black-suit Superman?

    This line is officially so much cooler than Marvel Legends, and I don't even collect half of it!
    Tommy, close your eyes.

    Glad you like them. I'm not a DC fan at all.

    Might pick up the Titans characters when they do them.

    Funny, in spite of how I might seem now, I was always a FAR bigger fan of Marvel than DC. However, I worshipped the "Holy Trinity" of Batman, Flash, and Superman (I always thought Wonder Woman was a silly character). The DCU figures seem to be better choices overall than the Marvel Legends, leaning heavily toward those characters and their rogues galleries, with a healthy smattering of JLA, Titans, and New Gods characters tossed in.

    Marvel Legends could've made a mint by producing X-Men-related characters for a full 75% of each wave, never run out of possibilities, and never have had to repeat a single character (even Wolverine). We never got a lot of pretty important X-Men characters, which may or may not be made in the future. (It looks like the focus has gone toward current storylines, so it's "depowered" mutants seem even less likely. I would've killed for a Jubilee. I couldn't care less about a Wondra, even if she is supposedly the same character.)
    Tommy, close your eyes.
