FTC said Commissioner Gordon is in Retro Batman Series 4, that's fine, but where are NON-Batman DC characters, too? Teen Titans is coming, but the JLA case was shown before TT!

8 more Mego DC figures need reissuing

Superman- Just celebrated 75 YEARS!
Clark Kent
Supergirl- Has her own comic book!
Mr Mxyzptlk
Wonder Woman- Hot because Gal Gadot casting!
Aquaman- Gets 2nd comic book in April!
Green Arrow- Has Arrow TV show!
Shazam- Appears in Justice League War DVD movie in Feb!

Then there's the REST of DC MULTIVERSE! FTC should use the 1980s Who's Who 26 issue comic book series for reference, it's served me well!

Agreed, although I don't think anyone would be too hurt if Mxy is dead last in the line. He's the least popular figure in the whole WGSH line.

Their going to go with what sells and that's Batman. Once the line gets going and is making them some money they can take some chances. I'd rather they go slow so they can have this line last for years and we can see all of our dream figures.

I always liked Mxyzptlk...hope he gets made!

Me, too. Nothing wrong with Mxyzptlk, fans are just po'd he was made and not Brainiac, Bizarro, Luthor. Also, the original Mego Mxy is rather off-model.

I like Mxyzptlk (was introduced to him on Super Friends cartoon) I had the Mego but looking back he is too tall and FAT! Still cannot believe Mxy was chosen over Lex Luthor BEST Superman villain! When did Luthor get his purple/ green jumpsuit! Challenge of the Super Friends Legion of Doom episodes 1978-79 was all the advertisement Mego needed for more DC figures!

Mxy was introduced by Mego in Feb. '74.

Back then, Lex was wearing a business suit or gray shirt/trousers.

I'm sure Toyroom knows exactly when Luthor donned the magenta/green jumpsuit--'76?

If they do Mxy, someone better inform FTC he needs to be closer to scale, as in kid-figure proportions.

Cant wait for the non batman stuff to start. If they went with Ovenmitts list I would definately get Green Arrow, Wonder Woman, and Supergirl since I have the others already.

Would really like to see Brainiac squeezed in there at some point to.

Yes and please by all means stay away from the more modern takes.

Lex's purple/green jumpsuit was first introduced in "Superman" #282 (December 1974)
So definitely within the Mego era and preceding "Challenge of the Super Friends" by a few years.

Thank you for the clarification/correction!

Dec.'74 is too late for the development of the Super-Foes wave (which premiered Feb. '74), but Mego could have done Luthor later in SF-style.

Taking a look at FTCs Batman and Robin, it looks as if the business model is to make a carbon copy repro first and then an adjusted retake in a later wave (or for Teen Titan Robin, an exclusive).

^ Myx may be the best figure to break this trend with, as he seems pretty unpopular as-is. FTC could still use the standard head on a child body with a re-sized suit.

Or, they could release a variant, smaller second version in a two-pack with a new Bat-Mite!

Egad, that would be awesome!!!

Do we want a smaller Yellow suited Myx or a purple suited Myx?

Although I'd love to skip right to Green and Pink Brainiac.

Keep him exactly the same as the original Mego. That's the whole point.

i also would like to see Mr Mxyztplk done as the original ,in fact i hope they also do the smirking one as well,then a reimagined small figure,and
that would be it for this little annoying imp.
