Reading through the forums over at AFI, and it looks like Mattel is gauging collector reaction to some potential 2-packs for 2009 (including some harder to find figures from DCSH).  They have offered them to online retailers to see the preorder numbers (you can see a pic of the Batman/Clayface pack at BBTS).  Anyways, here's the proposed lineup (more details at the AFI linky):
Batman vs Clayface

Batman will be in his black and gray costume with "mud splatter" effects. Clayface will be an exact reissue of this hard to find figure.

Superman vs Brainiac

This is proposed as a standard Superman figure (Eradicator head on the Wave 6 Superman body with red heat vision eyes) vs. Classic Brainiac (green head) with an all new head and coller piece. Brainic will come armed with Luthor's gun from the 2007 figure.

Supergirl vs. Luthor

This will be a reissue of the Blue outfit Kara Supergirl and the power suit Lex, but perhapes with a little surprise in the accessories!

Golden Age Hawk Pack

Two new figures to start your golden age collection.

They don't sound too bad to me really, taking into consideration that most of the 2 packs will usually contain a repacked/"tweaked" figure.

These sound awful.  I will pass on all of them.  Since when are Batman and Superman hard to find figures from DCSH?  They should re-release Catwoman, Batgirl, Nightwing, etc.

Two superbowl wins in other leagues today and my third depends on Ryan Grant getting 50 combined yards or more.  Come on Packers!

Midley tempting, but not a difficult pass at those prices.

Mo' Kudos to Jay for meeting up with me to hand over the White Vader Comic Pack and Wave 3 figs tonight.  Jay's transport service easily rivals that of the Falcon - we were able to avoid any Imperial entanglements despite my poor parking job.  ;D

Gimme a ******* break.  "You can only give it to a guy so many times"?  You mean the guy who scored 7 touchdowns in the preceding two weeks?  A goalline stand by a D that prevents a running back from scoring invalidates any attempts for the rest of the game?  Shake yer head.  I'm happy you won your games in other leagues, but honestly, do you think your logic stands up in the real world?  Go look at a game on tv and see your conclusion fail miserably.  Inability to score?  Sure, ok.   ::) was a joke Brent.   :-*

On a serious note, they did give it to him at the 2 and I was surprised he didn't get it again at the 1, but the clock was running down and I don't think they wanted to risk a running play.  They never got that close again int he 3rd and didn't need to wear him out playing him in the 4th quarter.  It sucks, but it happens I guess.  Maybe the coaching staff figured he had gotten more than his share of the action the last few weeks and wanted to get other players involved?  Or maaaaybe it was just my mojo hex on him that ruined his luck for the week.

Nice week to have Rhodes and Clark on my fantasy teams!  Indy is going to win a few people fantasy superbowls this week - nice to see them come back to life even if it had to wait 15 weeks into the season.

It would have been had the Eagles ever bothered to hand the ball off tonight... :-X

Even when they were up the entire game they still had Donovan throwing picks. With as many trips to the RZ as Philly had I still can't believe they didn't give it to him at all.

What are you talking about?  They gave it to Westbrook at the 2 yard line and he couldn't get it in - you can only give a guy so many chances.  I had two games riding on Westbrook NOT scoring, so thanks to his inability to score, I'm playing in three Superbowl games this week.  Woohoo!

Yeah I call crap on the Batman news too.
Bale has said repeatedly there is no way he will be there if there is a Robin involved.
And the casting for the Riddler Pfft

I call Shenanigans!  There is no way that Eddie Murphy was signed to Batman 3 and no way Shia is coming in as Robin. I do love the idea of Depp as the Riddler though if that rumor is accurate.

I won't miss KB Toys given that they've been extinct in Minnesota for years now.  What I do miss in general though is a toy shop somewhere at the mall.  I don't get how stores that sell just magnets or ties or socks seem to be able to make it, but a toy store can't?  I think they should have just relaunched the stores instead of closing the doors, but oh well.

It's looking very cool!  Certainly more detailed than I had been expecting.  I'd really like to see it with a figure so that I can get a sense for it's scale.

If I'm not mistaken, it looks like a figure would fit in the cockpit.  This should be part of the $20 assault vehicle line based on that.  Looks pretty sweet to me!

Here are my wants in case my secret santa is looking:

   1x Loose Toy Fair Silver Vader
   1x Mexican Exclusive Luke & Yoda 2 Pack

2008 Legacy Basic Figs
1x Commander Faie
1x Han Solo in Stormtrooper disguise
1x Spacetrooper
1x Jawa with WED droid
1x Obi-Wan Kenobi
1x Brainiac
1x Wioslea
1x Trinto Duaba & Dice Ibegon

2008 Legacy Comic Packs

2x Dark Empire II #1 with Clone Emperor and Luke Skywalker
2x X-Wing Rogue Squadron #32 with Borsk Fey'la and Wedge Antilles (Academy Outfit)
2x Rebellion #3 with Luke Skywalker and Deena (Stealth Armor)

   1x McQuarrie concept Stormtrooper with Saber positioned over his head MOMC

*** EPISODE I (Red Cards) ***
   1x Ric Ole (Completely Filled in Left Hand) - Loose is okay

   - Yoda's Cane (No repro)
   - Blue Snaggletooth
   - Warok's Bow (No repro)

   - S7:   Phasing Vision Variant (Loose)
   - S7:   Hawkeye
   - Wal-Mart Excluisve BAF Ares (Just need Ares, not the other figs)

   - G1 Blaster with working tape deck and gun
   - G1 Cassette Tapes with Accessories (Frenzy, Rumble, Birds,
      Ravage, Ratbat, Autobots, etc)

Broadening my list in case Santa's having any trouble...

Legacy Wave 4:
 - Breha (Tan version)
 - Bail ORgana (Tan Version)

Legacy Battle Packs - pretty much any

Lars Homestead Battle Pack (TRU Exclusive)

Target Excluisve Sarlaac Pit Battle Pack (loose,  but complete)
Any Clone Wars Wave 3

SW Kubricks - anything outside of the basic 6 from each series

90's Action Fleet 6" ships - These are getting pretty old, but I recently opened a Sandcrawler, Slave-I, and X-wing I have and a few others would be cool to have. 

Star Wars Galactic Heroes Battle Packs:
- Battle Of Geonosis
- Rancor Pit
- Battle on Kashyyyk
- Obi-Wan Jedi Starfighter
- Geonosis Battle Arena

TRU Battlefront II Clones 6-pack

If all else fails, even a gift card to Target or TRU would be terrific!

Hope that helps and Merry Christmas to all the Secret Santas out there!

Personally, I'd rather see Kit as a basic fig eventually versus an exclusive.  He's too cool to make too few of.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine action figures

Spoilers ahead.

I like the 3 3/4 scale, and I like to see these in that scale. I haven't bought Marvel toys for ages now, so isn't that scale dead after this year, and Hasbro moving to 3 3/4"?

I'm not sure that it's officially dead, but does look they're going full court press on the smaller size stuff, what with movie tie-ins and all.  I like the scale, but not really into any of these characters.

I think it was just Monday into Tuesday morning.  A few inches maybe?  I don't keep track because all the weathermen do is lie to me.   >:(
