Apologies if this was already posted, but FTC just posted confirmation they have a Superman figure on the way.
Their facebook page is here:

I know it was pretty much assumed, but this is official-like ! :)

Well I guess since they revealed this I can say they are going to release Supergirl also.

Clark Kent and Mr Mxyzptlk, too? The 4 Mego Superman characters would make a super wave!

You can make a Clark Kent from the website already just like the Bruce Wayne and Dick Grayson but yeah they are going to release him.

Now that they secured this it would also be awesome to have a George reeves supes just to put along side Adam west bats.
But this will for sure make me happier than a pig in sh....Well you know the rest.

blecch just say no to Mxy. I would much rather see a Brainiac or Jimmy Olsen replace him.

Mar 19, '14, 5:10 PM
I think it's a given they will do Mxy--though this is one figure I'd recommend revising onto a child-style body. You'd not have to alter the head, just resize the costume.

Do you think they should release all four vintage Mego Superman figures in one wave? I'd rather see FTC split them up and add in new figures: Lois, Jimmy, Brainiac, Bizarro, perhaps Toyman, Metallo, Jor-El, etc.

thunderbolt
Mar 19, '14, 5:23 PM
A revamped Mxy would be ok, I just think a straight repro would go over as well as he did originally.

PNGwynne
Mar 19, '14, 5:30 PM
I think I am in the minority in liking Mxy, but I will agree that the Mego version is off-model.

I get that FTC is doing straight repros, but a Mxy "revision" at the gate seems smart to me and they should in fact add a corresponding Bat-Mite.

thunderbolt
Mar 19, '14, 5:31 PM
EMCE had the sense to redo the Gorn, so this would be the perfect opportunity for FTC to strike with a redo, too.

PNGwynne
Mar 19, '14, 5:39 PM
^Good point--esp. since, as I said, it is not really a question of new tooling, but of resizing the suit. In fact, if they wanted to add molded boots in stead of sewn ones, they could easily adapt Titans boots.

fallensaviour
Mar 19, '14, 5:53 PM
Child body would be more accurate for Mxy but Id even settle for a teen titan body on him.
Anything to make him just a tad smaller.

Personally, I can't wait for the little imp! Wish they'd use him in a movie. I'm so sick of Luthor, Luthor, Zod, Luthor, Zod, Zod, Luthor, Zod, Luthor, Luthor.

The fact that Superman has had six feature films and we still haven't seen a trace of Brainiac, Bizarro, Metallo, etc. blows my mind.

I agree 1000% with you. However, I'm hearing rumors that Lex Luthor will be in the next Man of Steel installment. :please_y:

It's a shame the Superman cartoons have more of a variety of villians and more action overall........Go Figure (no pun).

I'd love to see some other villains Brainiac, Metallo, Parasite, Galactic Golem, atomic Skull, Master Jailer, Sand Superman

ovenmitt
Mar 19, '14, 9:25 PM
I forgot Sand Superman villain created in 1970s when Superman lost half his power and became immune to kryptonite! Classic Neal Adams cover "Kryptonite No More!" with Superman breaking kryptonite chains! Clark Kent became a TV newsman, too! How could Clark leave On Air TV to change to Superman to help sudden emergencies?

Mxy is one of the WORSE Mego figures ever produced! And Bat-Mite...oh, god ...please NO!!!:ugh_y:

Possibly, which is why some of us were discussing a FTC revision of Mxy.

Regarding Bat-Mite, why not? You'll likely be getting a Bronze-Age Batman and Ra's al Ghul from FTC, and if the line continues sufficiently, more diverse characters can be added.

I don't want Bat-Mite or Killer Moth before other more notable characters, but Batman's history is diverse. It has always acknowledged the supernatural & sci-fi, and Bat-Mite is a fun reminder of Batman in the '50s.

All I'm suggesting is a possible companion figure to a smaller Mxy--an Easter Egg of sorts.

its no rumor, he's been cast already.

I just got confirmation that the fourth figure is Mxy and he will be on a child size body. So here is Superman wave one:
*Superman
*Clark Kent (a figure you could buy at anytime on CTVT)
*Supergirl
*Mxy (new figure)

jeffbearco
Mar 20, '14, 4:25 PM
I really don't see the need to buy an exact reproduction of a figure I already have.

I have an original Mego Batman and Robin. I have an original Mego Superman.

I may get the 66 Batman and Robin because they show a good improvement over the original Megos. But unless they do a Christopher Reeve version of Superman, I really don't see the point. I'd also like to see a Lynda Carter Wonder Woman.

If they did a specially packaged version that included the secret identity clothes and an improved removable mask, I'd be tempted. For now, I'm probably going to wait until I see figures that I haven't already seen before I pull the trigger on starting a new collection. I've seen Myx. I've seen Lex now from Matel. Show me a Metallo figure with a metal painted body. Maybe a Braniac that doesn't look lame.

I guess I've also lost a LOT of trust in starting to collect new lines and then have them cancelled just as I really get excited about them.

And my own worst Mego Pet Peeve? Why the hell does Batman not come with a batarang? Why isn't there a Mego scale utility belt that has a clip on batarang on the back? It generally ****es me off.

Thanks for confirmation! My dream Superman wave! New Mxyzptlk! Will he have Mego head 2nd version?

That leaves Wonder Woman, Aquaman, Green Arrow, and Shazam as remaining original Mego DC figures left, will they be in a wave together?

So is Superman going to be like Batman, in the sense we get several assorted series? That would actually be great there several great characters to release like Brainiac, Metallo, Bizarro, and Lois Lane, and so much more....

From FTC.That's what I thought you meant when you said "you got confirmation".:yes:
This is wonderful news! "Mr. Mxyzptlk", as he should have been done. I hope he has purple gloved hands and plastic boots. Wow, this is a great call on FTC part!:yeah:

Good grief, I hope not--that'd be a waste of a lot of potential spin-offs if they crammed the rest into one wave.

Megotu
Mar 28, '14, 3:52 PM
Well Aquaman could have HIS wave...
Artie, Aqualad as a full size like Robin, Mera, and the jerk with the octopus hat.
Wonder Woman, Steve, Cheetah, and wonder Girl full size.
Captain Marvel, Mary Marvel, Capt Marvel Jr and Black Adam
Green Arrow, Speedy full size, Black Canary and ...I am drawing a blank on his villains...

Aquaman wave:
Aquaman, Mera, Ocean Master, Fisherman
