It's par for the course with CTVT/FTC....everything they do graphic design wise is pretty generic...IMO

So does this mean Green Lantern and Flash are in the works?

Looks like it. They're covering characters that Mattel Retro Action already tackled....

I don't blame them. Those are arguably two of THE most requested non-produced Megos of all-time. If Green Lantern and Flash aren't released in the first offering of non-Batman characters, I'd say that'd be almost as stupid as only offering one new character (that happens to be a butler) in the 3 bat-waves that already exist.

It's looks to be pretty awesome, even if they have already been done by Mattel. I am kinda excited to see them!

Wow! Beautiful......Can you imagine if they were to venture into DC Superhero Action figures that would remotely resemble the art in their cards/case. Brand new head design/sculpts for a new generation of fans. I'm sure it would appeal to all the Masses......Both young and old. "GO FTC GO". :drool_y: :drool_y: :drool_y:

So that would make the first non Batman wave Superman, Wonder Woman, Flash & Green Lantern - not bad. I wonder if Superman & Wonder Woman will be exact copies of the Mego releases. Since they already have the Superman head I'd guess yes on him and the black haired female head could be used for Wonder Woman.

I never perceived Retro Action as close enough to the Mego aesthetic. And the only original Megos I tracked down are Batman and Robin. So these are very appealing to me. Full steam ahead!

If these Flash and GL are made more like Mego would've made them I will be VERY happy.

I love my Retro Action guys but those 2 were more "mego-like" than "mego" to me. Two-Face could have passed for an old mego IMO.

The way I look at it is that I'm a Batman collector so I have most of the Mego-like figures of Batman and Robin.
If someone was a Flash collector, or Green Lantern collector, they would own the Mattel and FTC figures also.
A person who collects all Mego-like 8" figures is still going to buy FTC's heroes, even if they own RA's.
So they may as well redo them all,
cuz you can't have too many Megos!!!

This is all well and good but there comes a point where it's time to stop teasing and start shipping.

Seriously.

At this point, the 1978 catalog is just as possible.

I'll put my money on CAW 2.0 to make it to market first.

Why is this even a question at this point? Isn't it a given that they'll be exact reproductions?

Well, they ain't gonna do that.... unless they're planning on totally surprising us and doing a 180 from the "exact" reproductions of a vintage look as far as what they've already shown in their promo.

And if they ever try to go that route that Mattel went... then I'm surely out of their game. I'm gonna have my wallet in action enough with 6 inch Star Wars and other stuff, than to have my money in an 8 inch scale DC line that "almost" is Mego.... I did that once already and did not like it. Except for the new characters... those weren't a bad thing for me. Not on Mego bodies like these new Figures Inc figures are... but, admittedly, not bad all the same.

EE still has loose Bats and Robin listed as this month. Proof is in the pudding time.

Why are they releasing cases for figures they havent even made yet and/or released?

Folks who have the Mattel versions might want them? Collector's cases aren't that attractive to me. The old Star Wars ones that sorta doubled as a Playset were more attractive.

A case that opened and had a Batcave or a Hall of Justice or Hall of Doom backdrop might get me to buy it.
