DCUC is dead. Long live… DCUC! Last year, Mattel took my collector heart and crushed it with six little words: “will no longer be at retail”. Summer 2011 will not soon be forgotten by DC fans. The toyline imploded. The comics disintegrated. It was a bad time to love DC Comics.
We hadn’t planned on Monday being a follow-up to our Saturday Most Requested column about completing teams in the DC Classics line, but the tremendous response to our article made us want to crunch the numbers and see which teams and what characters our readers wanted. Besides, with DCUC9 not anywhere nearby, what else does a bunch of blogging toy collectors have to do all weekend? :D
Before we get knee deep in pie charts, we want to take a minute to thank everyone who participated. That was the biggest response we'd had to an article in the history of the site! You really blew us away all day Saturday. Thank you.
Toy collectors are an interesting bunch. We're a diverse group of people with different backgrounds, different tastes, different opinions. Sometimes it seems like we might have very little in common other than the love of toys, but there is a common factor we see in a lot of toy collections. We at ItsAllTrue like to group our action figures into subteams and we're not the only ones.
