I love the DC Animated figures but wish they would make them faster with more variety so during a bout of insomnia I decided to “design” a few waves sorted by categories. It would be 4 releases each year, 1 each for Batman (TAS, TNBA, Beyond), Superman TAS, JL/JLU, and the new Timm designed series of non-Animated characters. 4-5 figures per wave or 3 and a deluxe.
Batman - Red Claw, Blight, tuxedo Penguin, Tyger, Batman (I know a plain Batman again but this one with wraparound cape. Or a deluxe “cape pack” for TAS and TNBA colors. Huge fabric cape, wraparound cape, wired cape.)
Superman - Bizarro, Metallo, Supergirl, Parasite, Darkseid semi deluxe (this version not the armored JLU version)
JL/JLU - Firestorm, Captain Atom, Shazam, Question, Cheetah (this is the hardest wave to narrow down because of sheer quantity).
Timm - original Azrael, Court of Owls Talon, Bloodwynd, Batman Who Laughs, Kyle Rayner, Super Sons
And special pack because I can break my own rules - Clark Kent, Lex Luthor (suit and tie) and Bruce Wayne (slim TNBA suit and tie version) called . . . Power Lunch.
1 play set per year? Police HQ rooftop with batsignal and TNBA Gordon.
That’s the first year. And a lot of money.
Future must haves - deluxe Doomsday, Timm Death of the Family Joker (loose skin), Timm Kingdom Come, Timm Blackest Night, JLU Beetle and Booster (L-Ron and the rest of 90’s JLI). Green Arrow and Black Canary. Timm style satellite era JLA costumes, Zatanna for sure. Justice Lords. Mercy. The Javelin.
