I'd agree with many of the above, and would add Donna Troy as Wonder Girl, Black Canary, Supergirl (any iteration, although my personal preference is the hotpants outfit!), Vixen, Liberty Belle, Johnny Quick, Power Girl (traditional costume), Mary Marvel and Captain Marvel Jr, Alan Scott/Green Lantern, Dr Fate....as you may surmise, I'm an old DC fan who started reading back in the 70s. While some of the stories don't bear up, the characters were iconic. I'm afraid, for the most part, the New 52 revamps leave me cold.
Also liking your list. I only really got into comics about 4 years ago and reading random story arcs as they com up cheap...I loved the blackest night/brightest day story line so that's why Deadman and Hawk. I have to agree the new 52 is often shaken but a couple of bit have been alright (I really like Justice league dark and I think a bit of that reflects in my list) but Hawkman at almost any era is defiantly a fav character. Some are far better than others and he's a character that's suffered a lot from ever changing writers but a couple of the writers have saved it by poking fun at the problems of character continuity.
I'd say that the bat villain category is well represented in the existing sets, but with the amount of crossover stories there's near limitless potential for others.
I thought about making one but I grew up with marvel and don't know enough dc characters (outside of the main ones) so happy to defer to an expert.
Dead shot and death stroke would definitely be cool.
I would also like cyborg, doomsday and darkseid.
In terns of the larger characters, would people be prepared to shell out a bit more for those to made in the same way as the hulk figures our would you rather keep the same price for them to be the same size as the others.
Personally I'd rather pay the little extra as long as it makes them look more like they appear in the comics/films etc. in terms of DC series this would apply to characters like Darkseid, Doomsday, Killer Croc, Killowog Green Lantern...I'm sure there are others but it's far to early for me to think of them.
Ra's Al Ghul
Swamp Thing (probably too hard to make a minifigure representation).
A few off the top of my head. They are Batman-heavy, I know; it will never happen, because that would be damaging to the selling potential of several sets that could be produced over the course of the licensing agreement, but one can dream. It may not be a popular choice to suggest the SDCC minifigs, but it's probably the only way many of us will ever have the chance to own them.
A lot of them have been represented in the LEGO Batman games - Clayface has a Chewbacca-type mould, for example, so shouldn't be that difficult.
Had Hasbro not owned BOTH toy lines I don't expect the bigger more expensive figure manufacturer to be happy to see toy dollars/pounds/euros be swallowed up by smaller figure manufacturer who offers better value for money on a Costs per figure basis.
I hope I'm proved wrong - but DC like Marvel have more than 16 iconic figures we'd all want - but maybe not by the public at large. Simpsons is on TV ALL THE TIME. So even my parents who despite years and years of training still can't name a Justice League Member beyond the Trinity of Superman , Wonder Woman and Batman - and often include ROBIN in the Justice League, they can name half of the Simpsons characters that are in the CMF range.
So is there enough demand for Cyborg, Firestorm, Booster Gold, Blue Beetle to warrant a CMF range for DC that isn't already covered in the boxed sets (Superman, Wonder Woman, Batman, Flash, Aquaman). For me there would be! But everyone else? I don't know.
If anyone collects other figures I'd recommend looking at the Scribblenauts Unmasked figures, they are very stylised but a nice small figure with a lot of the lesser known characters. I was given two and lucky enough to get Deadman who would have been my first choice if choosing.
Batman (a variant from the video game:) )
Green Lantern (John Stewart)
Catwoman (purple suit)
I'm aware that toy licensing is complicated and people with rights to various things will defend them furiously but I'd say that there two shouldn't be compared directly. An action figure is completely different to a Lego minifigure, as such I have a small Deadman Scribblenauts Figure, but I'd still want a Lego Minifigure of the same character and if I saw a good full size action figure at a price I'm happy to pay for it I'd buy that too. Look at the Funko Pop Vinyl line, they are stylised versions of the characters and therefore having say an Iron Man one of those would't be the same as having an Iron Man Action Figure or an Iron Man Lego fig. If anything I'd say the Lego Ultrabuild characters step on the toes of a traditional action figure more than a mini figure, but as you say the licence is for building toys so they have a nice sidestep with those - but then where do polybag characters like Martian Manhunter fit into all this?
Again I still don't expect CMFs based on DC/Marvel etc to be produced but I think theres plenty of reason for TLG to consider other licenced characters in CMF lines and what I do think we could see from TLG is more licenced CMF lines on new licences as a way of testing the market.
Sorry for long ranting post, most of it was just thinking out loud, I'd just like to see more characters available so this stuff is all interesting to me.
1. Superman (Injustice)
2. Batman (Injustice)
3. Shazam (Injustice)
4. Deathstroke (Arkham Origins)
5. Arkham Knight
6. Green Arrow (comics)
7. Nightwing (blue)
8. Red Hood
9. Booster Gold
10. Blue Bolt
12. Deadshot (Arkham Origins)
13. Plastic Man
14. Green Lantern (Jon Stewart)
15. Reverse Flash (with boots!)
16. Black Adam
Who would I like to see?!?
Green Lantern (Hal Jordan)
Captain Marvel (SHAZAM!)
Green Lantern (Guy Gardner)
If you want really obscure:
The Metal Men
The Challengers of the Unknown
Basically anyone in the DCU ;)
One character I'd love to see, who might have a better chance in a CMF series than in a regular set, is Static. I grew up with the cartoon "Static Shock", and it still strikes me as a fantastic series with a profound social conscience.
LEGO may bring something out of the bag next time they want to up the minifig price.
Nu52 Harley Quinn!
... and hyenas
(not saying, of course, that it would be a bad thing!)
Chief O'Hara 66
King Tut 66
Mr Freeze 66
Also, I'm throwing in for an Animal Man and bigfig Swamp Thing. Right now...
Doom Patrol (Robotman at least)
Sandman (Either of them but Morpheus is almost a must)
Jesse Custer (This counts right- never happen in a million billion years but one can hope)
Red Son Superman
Kingdom Come variants (Green Lantern especially)
I'm a big fan of Elseworlds story's though and you could do a whole set based on those. I think a lot of them are even in continuity with the new 52 worlds thing
