    There wasn't much discussion on which head they were going after. There have been a lot of artist takes over the years.

    If it looks even close to Alex Ross' Superman from Kingdom Come, I would DEFINITELY be interested in this.
    The Best Superman Rendition, IMHO.
    My guess is though they will try to get close to a Curt Swan/Murphy Anderson Superman look, which as long as it
    isn't open mouth, should be ok ( ENFORCE the QC FTC!)

    Who knows maybe it'll be based on a TV or movie Superman.

    They have scored some things we never thought they would. I would not put a George Reeves or Christopher Reeve likeness off the table. But I'm thinking it would be more of a 70s or 80s comic likeness. As long as it isn't the long hair Superman, I'm OK with it. hehehe

    I'm assuming it'll be an updated Bronze Age Swan/Adams style likeness. As long as it isn't oversized like the Batman series 5.

    Maybe 1980s Jose Garcia Lopez DC style guide Superman?

    Ha! It never occurred to me until now, but Garcia-Lopez Superman is the exact meeting point in a Venn diagram of Swan's Supes and Adams'

    Yes, you're probably exactly right, that seems to be their go-to.

    It's nice to know we'll get some version of Hawkman down the line. I personally want to see a Super Friends version as well as Wonder Dog and the rest of the Legion of Doom. I want to see every character on the back of the card made.

    A new head for Superman would be great. I would love to see a Jose Garcia Lopez version, especially for the Super Powers line.

    I'm glad they're NOT going to remake the Mego Batcopter. That was a horrific toy. I had it as a kid and hated it then. I wish the Batcopter had looked more like a real copter and it be either black or blue.

    I wish FTC would consider a wave 1 Aquaman line, maybe next year, when the Aquaman movie is due to be released? Aquaman in the orange and green costume with a new headsculpt Jose Garcia Lopez style, Mera, Black Manta, and Ocean Master. That would be a great wave 1 if one wave period.

    It would be cool if they could design the Supermobile. The blue sidecar to the Mego Batcycle as a kid reminded me of it.

    The one DC figure that would be a trick is the Atom. He would have to be made a regular size. But I would love to have him anyway.

    Anyway, those are my thoughts. Great interview.

    This was a really informative interview for sure. It does give some flat out give some yays and nays. I wonder if the Excelsior exclusive is the new Joker they were talking about. I hope Man-Bat is based on the Adams and/or Robbins version. I really am looking forward to this one.
    The very first custom I made was Man-Bat. I took the wings off of a eagle from Big Jim and rubber banded them to a shirtless Batman.
    I am a little confused about Hawkman. I don't think I'm reading this wrong. Here's a quote from the interview. Inside the parantheses is me clarifing what's in what series.
    "PM: We've seen the teases for Red Tornado, Firestorm, and Dr. Fate (series 4). Hawkman is on the card backs for Series 3 (GL,MM,Flash and Plastic Man). Will DC's Winged Avenger fill out the lineup for Series 4?
    AB: Hawkman will be in Series 4 for sure. we are working out who else will join him."

    In the answer did he get the waves confused? If Hawkman is rounding out wave 4 then we know the rest of the wave. It's Red Tornado, Firestorm and Dr. Fate. If they have to figure out the rest of the wave does that mean he's in a yet to be mentioned wave 5? If so, who's the fourth in wave 4? I'm probably over thinking it. It was probably a mistake. It's got to be a lot to keep track of.
    Grood is on the new muscle body. I hope it's a little taller than the regular body.
    As for Superman they say there's no wave 4 planned "just yet". They have a " new version of Superman" coming with a "new head". I mentioned a TV or movie Superman earlier and I agree it would seem to be more likely to be a comic style. A Swan head would be great but as long as it looks good and in proportion that would be enough.
    A big part of what they offer collectors is the Batman 66 line. I would guess it also does better for them than most. If this line is winding down like a lot of people here think then they might want to fill that gap in their product. I think a tv or movie Superman line makes sense. They say new version and new head, not Superman with a new head.
    I could be over thinking this too. To be fair speculating on what the future product we could be offered has to be at least a third of what we're supposed to be doing.😊.
    Thanks for reading, I know I ramble.
