DC by Mattel

Posted in Action Figure Chatter

Hi, I heard a while ago that Mattel (and 4 horsemen) were doing a series of DC heroes in same scale as ML??
I am sorry if this is old news, but I would LOVE to have Supes, bats, Lobo etc on my ML shelf and looking part of it!
Are they available at all?

Thx

we don't have those in Britain - Poundstretcher, Instore, TK MAXX are our ex-stock retailers offering figures for bargain prices

But its pretty much potluck - I'm buying Boxsets of Magwarriors just now as their heads, bodies and weaponry are perfect for fodder

their heads have independent LEDs inside of them that don't run from a battery pack in the body. - really handy for making figures with light up eyes on the fly

The ppl that are looking for "some" of these figures may try your closes BigLots. I've seen some of the figures like Steel,Supes,&Monguol there.

Actually, it's better to use Ebay UK and use the Worldwide search option - gives you who'll send to the UK, and more importantly, how much shipping will cost.

Batman is very common, or at least it was when they came out...Azrael is a rare fig, unfortunately I chopped him up already for a custom

Dr Nightmare,

I have now taken the time (at work ) to finally read all your DCSH reviews, and am now heartbroken.....

I can't find the damn things!!! The Batman you reviewed and the Azrael are immense! I would absolutely LOVE to get my hands on them!

BAFs really push the "gotta get them all" mentality. I would have never bought a planet hulk if it wasent for Annilus

There was just an article about the fact that Mattel has ALL of the DC/ vertigo/ darkhorse copyrights now (except for four unnamed characters that are still in limbo). There won't be anything outside of Batman/superman til this time next year though. From what I read they are looking great so far.

Oh and they do Build a figures now too.

I think mongul is that big in the animated series. got to be if he has the same strength level as superman. I love the fact DC is putting out articulated figures.

Yeah! We have reviews on the site!

Yup, I think they were designed to be in-scale to make the collectors happy (and rival Marvel's Legends).

So bats and co would be ML size?

No prob, Geppetto. The fig is heavy too (for a toy that is).

Yeah, all the DCSH figures are in proportion to each other (except maybe Doomsday, he looked a lot bigger in the comics). Mongul is really that big in the comics/cartoons.

Is Mongul normally a lot bigger (I mean the character?).

How does Batman/Flash/Normal proportioned characters measure up?

Doesn't anyone read the reviews on this site ._.

I'll get a pic...any figure in particular that you want him standing next to? (a figure you have that I have too)

I saw the list and yes dc figures were on the danger list, it was on mattel.com I just checked it.

No, that's Mattel's Dora the Explorer, and other lines aimed at little kids.

arnt these the same figures being recalled for the lead paint being put on them in china? and also can any one show me a pic of the mongul figure to scale with a ML figure, I just started to want to get a few of these toys now that I know the legs are multi articulated.

Yar, they are 10 dollars in the U.S. and most of the figures are hard to find (scalpers, bad luck, and kids actually like these figures).

Blimey!! I have been and searched around for these (to be honest, I had seen them, but mistook them fo rthe cartoony-style ones which I think are DC direct? Don't like them.).
Anyway, they certainly fetch a hefty price don't they?
There is a Steel on e bay at only $10 dollars, but that would cost me $23 to ship as well!
Guy selling it is hknaruto. It has 1 day 20 hours left.

Well, with the first few lines of DC Universe Classics, they're making people like Orion, Metamorpho(BAF), Etrigan, Black Manta, etc. so with those you would think they would have rights to more well known characters like Wonder Woman and Green Lantern.

Mattel does have the rights to do most other characters (according to Wizard/Toyfare magazine), at least we hope so! I'd hate it if they were just pulling our leg

I have heard that DCSH / Mattel, Does not actually have the right to produce such characters as Wonder Woman, Green Arrow ,Green Lantern. For some strange reason DC Direct still has a lock on them. So it may be a long while before we see anything more than rehashed Superman, his enemies and Batman and his Rogues Gallery.

I can't wait until they branch out a little, I want a Green Arrow!

Wow, you're really out of the loop!

Yeah, they came out a while ago, theyre called DC Super Heroes (DCSH). So far it's only Batman/Superman characters but Mattel actually has the right to make ANY DC character so you never know who might turn up!

Here are some reviews I've written on some of them: http://www.figurerealm.com/review?action=series&id=691
