DCU Animated Figures. How would you like to see them done?

Hey guys, I am intrigued by the fact this showed up on Matty. Let's see what fans think about the future of figures based on the DC Animated movies. Keep everything uniform and in scale or branch off with new looks like the Public Enemies line did?

What you like is just that, what YOU like. You can defend your reasoning but let's try not to flame others who have their own opinions, no matter how wrong they mat be. Wink

Question:
Assuming Mattel branches off into more of the DC Animated Films for figure ideas, how would you like to see them done?

Choices:
Cassic DCUC Style
Animation Specific Sculpting

Please don't count the cartoon Young Justice figures as being "close enough".

while for the most part i dont mind the animation specific sculpts, sometimes it just doesnt make a good translation going from comic art to animation to action figure. the Superman and Batman figures specifically in the Public Enemies line looked ridiculous next to the other figures, while everyone else more or less fit in with the other DCUC figures.

the Michael Turner style of Apokalypse would be hit or miss as well. this would be a case where figures like Superman and Batman would fit in with DCUC, but the overly anime-ish eyes on Kara would look rather odd in comparison.

same deal with the All-star Superman movie thats coming, the Mick Jagger lips on all the characters wouldnt look good at all, much less next to DCUC figures

long story short, keep the sculpts as close to DCUC style as you can when possible

Yeah, I don't want more Public Enemies type figures. Sure Brimstone looks great with my other figures, and Black Lightning and Banshee are passable enough, but it's my least favorite wave overall. (And that's saying a lot as I'm pretty much obsessed with the Outsiders.)

Now if we see Young Justice characters in the DCUC line like comic accurate Tim Drake in his 90s costume or Impulse, that I wouldn't mind. But I don't want to see sub-lines like Young Justice in an animated style.

Either one would be fine with me,voted for DCUC style.But I sure would like to see figures of Owlman and Superwoman the way they appeared in Crisis on 2 Earths.Especially Superwoman

DCUC style.

I don't mind if they alter the paints/costumes and slightly alter the head-sculpts to be specific to the relevant animated film, but I would prefer if all the DCUC figures looked like they were part of the same "series/line".

I'd like them to have their own sculpt.

6 in scale gets my vote.


I hate the JLU scale. The figures are great but they're just too small for my tastes.

I don't see the point of an "Animated Universe" line if it isn't in Animated style. Confused

Otherwise it's just DCUC with another label. DC Direct does some pretty awesome artist-specific sculpts on their figures all in one scale line.

DCUC style all the way. I would LOVE to see the Crisis on Two earths figures released DCUC - Owlman, Superwoman, Johnny Quick, a modern Ultraman, etc... - these would all be great figures.

care to re-evaluate that statement? sure all of the DCD figures are roughly 6in scale, but i have quite a few figures from quite a few of their sublines, and none of them are anywhere near in actual scale with each other

I would prefer JLU scale but I'm okay with the sculpt being done to match the animation of the movie.

In general, Lanterns are Lanterns at least the newest are.

I have Star Wars toys that are different scales without meaning to- Leia comes to mind. So it's a problem in all companies.

I still stand behind my statement that it's possible to match scale while sculpting style matches the source material Wink

I also stand behind my statement that there isn't a point of calling your line "animated" if it doesn't look like an animated character. Otherwise it's a DCUC figure of the character which doesn't require separately marketed line.
