DC Universe Classics Fan Choice Poll 2010
DC Comics: Jay Cochran - 2010.07.15
ToyFare is hosting the third Mattel DC Universe Classics Fan Choice Poll. You’ll remember that in 2008 fans chose The Question, and last year you guys selected Teen Titans’ own Raven (who’ll be appearing in Wave 15 this fall). But for this third poll, the winner will actually become a wave-anchoring Collect and Connect build-a-figure figure for 2011’s DCUC Wave 20, standing between 8 and 10 inches tall. Choose from a wretched hive of scum and villainy, a nominee list populated mostly with big baddies and assorted other n’er-do-wells. The winner will become a larger-than-life plastic reality. And the choice is in your hands!

Have a hands-down favorite? Cast your vote today—voting ends August 31!

The choices are as follows:

BLOCKBUSTER
We don’t want to call Blockbuster a hulking character, but…he is a super-strong but mindless scientist in torn purple pants. Unfortunately, under the influence of his criminal brother (who would later go on to be the second Blockbuster, and a major crime boss), the brutish Blockbuster committed a series of crimes armed with only his brute strength and a burning hatred for Batman and Robin. Seeking a cure for his condition, he was recruited into the very first incarnation of Amanda Waller’s Suicide Squad…and promptly killed by Brimstone (himself a previous Mattel Collect-and-Connect figure!) Hey, hulking characters in torn purple pants have made successful figures before…

GIRDER
One of the coolest looking new villains of the past decade, Girder is a nouveau-Flash Rogue, first encountered in Keystone City’s metahuman prison, Iron Heights. Girder has one of those classic “falling into a vat of something” origin stories--in this case, a vat of molten steel that turned his body into living (but continuously rusting) metal. Aside from continually clashing with the Flash, Girder has run up against the Teen Titans and the Justice Society. Also, he has a beard made out of metal. Dude would make one awesome looking toy.

KING SHARK
Sure, DCUC already has a humanoid shark guy (GL villain The Shark), but this is King Shark! The former Superboy villain cuts a much more imposing figure than the aforementioned regular Shark, and he’s used his size and strength to take on guys like Superman. Supposedly the son of a shark god (that’s even better than a king!), King Shark took a heroic turn for a while as a mentor to the new Aquaman, but he’s been back to his villainous ways of late. Which is exactly what we like from giant, hideous shark people.

NEKRON
Nekron, embodiment of Death in the DC Universe—well, one of them, at least—has been around for nearly 30 years, but his profile got a huge boost earlier this year when he was revealed as the big bad behind the mega-event Blackest Night (plus the guy behind every superhero resurrection ever.) Nekron’s one of the only guys on this list to actually have an action figure (as part of DC Direct’s Blackest Night line), but 2011 is going to be a huge year for Green Lantern, and there should be no shortage of DCUC Lanterns of every shade for Nekron to battle with or to control. Are fans dying for a giant Nekron figure?

SHAGGY MAN
The super-strong and indestructible Shaggy Man was initially only defeated by the creation of a second Shaggy Man. Of late he’s been best known in a much less shaggy form, ever since a dying General Eiling transplanted his brain into the Shaggy Man’s body, shaved it and called himself The General. Fun fact: on the cover of his first appearance, Shaggy Man is depicted holding Flash and Batman in each hand, slamming them into each other. If that’s not the set-up for an action figure display, we don’t know what is.
